Fashionably Late

This title refers to both my blog posting behaviour and also my unfathomably late adoption of the creepers trend! I've been championing the trend for ages but have never actually owned my own pair! Partly because I couldn't afford decent ones but mainly because I decided I'd look like a poser prat.

Out and about on my street style missions for Company, I've seen them worn in all kinds of ways and I've decided it is totes possible not to look like a poser prat. Especially when I wore them yesterday, when all I resembled was a slight tramp - (My solution to bed head? Brushing hair? Lol, no. Just chuck a bow at the problem.)

So yesterday, Alex, my new creepers and I went for a mooch around town and a reading session in our favourite secret garden!

I've spent the weekend reading The Making Of Us by Lisa Jewell which I picked up at work - I haven't got stuck in to a good bit of fiction in longer than I'd care to remember but I have barely put this down since I started it on Friday afternoon! In fact, I finished it this morning and highly recommend it! Bit of an emotional roller coaster but aren't all the best books?

We also nipped into the Courtyard Bazaar, Canterbury's lovely monthly affordable vintage fair run by the owners of one of the coolest Cafs in town, Boho. The next fairs are being held on September 1st and 22nd, so if you're looking to buy (or sell) some cool vintage bits, head here!

I'm off to town to do some refunds (which will inevitably become exchanges...) and will be hopefully blogging again soon with some pics of what I've been up to at work etc :)

Hope you've all had a lovely weekend so far! x

  5. I'd love to be able to pull off the creepers trend - with size 7 feet and a small stature it's so not an option!
    It would be mine

  6. Love this outfit, definitely not trampy!

  7. The creepers look great on you! I bought a pair a few months ago but always found them difficult to wear... I kind of wish I'd saved my money and bought the amazing wedge air that Underground do

  8. You look wonderful in creepers !


  9. Ahh if only all of life's problems could be solved by chucking a bow at them :) Cx

  10. I read that book a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it too. I have read most of Lisa jewels books and really reccomend them! (Ralph's party / after the party are especially good!)

  11. Oh, I love chilling on a sunny afternoon in that garden I will not name in case people find out about it, and playing pooh sticks there too!

  12. The creepers really suit you! I always wonder if I'm 'cool' enough for them! The vintage fair looks lovely, loving the bunting!


  13. that bazaar looks so cool! and i get what you mean with the 'poser' thing, that's why i'm not diving in just yet too, they look perfect on you though.

    k.o.r. x

  14. Lisa Jewell is my absolute favourite author! I've had this book for a few weeks but I'm trying my best to save it for my holiday in September! She's perfect pool-side reading.

  15. I find creepers can become a bit hit or miss depending how the wearer styles them but they look great on you here, the whole outfit is great and I love the bow!


  16. Relaxed outfits are just the best :) xo

  17. Better late than never hey! The creepers look good!



  18. looks like a perfect day! love the shoes aswell!


  19. I love the bow on bed-head look! I also love that you went to read together in a garden, how sweet is that.

  20. Wishing I had the money for the leopard print design of those creeper, so so nice! Loving the bed head look too, only you could pull that off so well!

  21. You are so right, they look so normal on you and don't look poserish at all! I think creepers are so cool, but don't think I could pull them off, i'll stick to my converse!
