The Brit Pack Valentine's Edition

1. Pink Safety Pin Skirt Primark 2. Fleur of England Berry Kiss Lace Balcony Bra


6. VIBRANT TUMBLED BALLERINAS 7. Fluffy Boyfriend Coat topshop 

Firstly, Happy Valentines Day! I'm not really one to celebrate Valentines day and funnily enough, nor does my boyfriend. Saying this, we will probably pop to the cinema and join the queue of couples who have been equally as creative on this romantic day (a film, plus popcorn, is my perfect date).   

However, this is a Valentines day edit, and I have decided to embrace a little romance.. in the wardrobe department. The colour that signifies love is traditionally red (roses), but pink (roses) is a close second. So, I have created a PINK wishlist. It just so happens, that there are pastel pieces all over the high street right now. One that has been a blogger's favourite, is the pastel pink, boyfriend coat (7). 
Dorothy has her red ruby slippers, I have my pink ballet pumps. This year will be the third time I have repurchased these comfy pumps, as I wear them all spring/summer!!
I have fallen head over pumps, for this gorgeous pink, Zara bag (5). The popular mini city design, in a soft, dusty shade, is a complete dream bag. I guess, Valentines day is also a day to treat yourself - the perfect excuse to make this purchase (plus these bags sell like hot cakes!).
Primark always offer the latest trends, and is the perfect place to purchase such trends that come and go each season. The dark pink skirt (1) is a steal at £10. It has been a while since I've been to Primark, but if this is a preview of what they have in store, I will have to visit soon! I just adore the safety pin detail and style!
The Zara skirt is very similar to the one Olivia wore in this wonderful, Paris inspired outfit post. Olivia has styled this skirt perfectly (I have a weakness for denim, cute pumps and gorgeous bags it seems).
Lastly, Journelle have the most beautiful underwear and lingerie. It may be a little cliché to talk about bras and knickers on Valentines day, but Journelle really do offer unique and precious designs from a variety of brands. My wishlist has grown some what after visiting this site!

Valentines day maybe all hearts and flowers, but it's also a day couples and friends exchange tokens of affection and tell one another how they truly feel. I hope you have enjoyed my Valentines day inspired post. I'm so thrilled to be part of The Brit Pack, all involved are so lovely and supportive of one another. We have all done a Valentines post, so there is lots to read this Friday (links below).

A pretty thing

I love the moment when you discover a new online store. This happened to me just after New Year. The store, Oh My Clumsy Heart. The person behind this wonder,  Sophie from The private life of a girl.

'... created with an appreciation for exceptional, simple everyday adorements'

Each piece is handmade and carefully created, each as special as the next. I have been looking for a necklace in this style, for some time. So, when I came across this delicate and contemporary design, I quickly purchased it! I adore the three brass hexagons, on the dainty gold chain - it is a complete treasure!

There are so many wonderful pieces, such as Grace and Verity. I find, smaller businesses, such as this, have more character and thought behind their products. The jewellery is made from high quality metals 'alongside reclaimed vintage discoveries, natural stones and crystals'. 

Hopefully, this is the first post of a series, discovering online stores that I have fallen for. I'm so pleased with my special necklace, it is worn around my neck most days. I think this store offers the perfect gifts for friends, a loved one, or to you from you (note, Valentines day is not far away!)

I also spotted Rosie from Cider with Rosie, wearing a necklace from here - so it would have been only a matter of time before I stumbled upon this delightful store. Oh my Clumsy Heart!
