Couldn't decide whether or not I wanted to wear vertical or horizontal stripes, so I wore both, justified by this outfit Carrie Bradshaw wore in the final episode of Sex and the City. I got my skirt from ASOS about three months ago, and it's still available online. I wore it with a Zara top, Ray Ban sunglasses, Toms and H&M bag.

While I was on holidays in Switzerland, my friend lent me a copy of 'Just Kids' by Patti Smith. I was dubious, as I'm not the biggest fan of autobiographies. I absolutely loved it. Patti Smith's writing, particularly her attention to detail, whether it was what the colour of the hotel room walls were, or what she and Robert Mapplethorpe were wearing when they met Bob Dylan, was absolutely perfect.
I Googled her as soon as I got home too see some more photos of her (there are a few dotted sporadically around in the book).
All I want to do now is run away to New York with a beautiful boy and wear incredible jewellery with oversized shirts and tight jeans.

This top is one of my favourites. I found it in a charity shop in Whitstable about three years ago and its never let me down. According to the label, it's very, very old Topshop. I'm wearing it with: a wool skirt I got last year from Zara, my favourite Converse, Ray Ban sunglasses and my Marc By Marc Jacobs watch.

I've been reading Teen Vogue for a long time - for so long that they still had a UK edition when I picked up my first issue. I only have a few months left of my teenage years, and I'll be sad when I can no longer justify buying Teen Vogue so regularly.

The back of what used to be my favourite dress, but after it shrunk in the wash last year, it became my favourite top. It's the comfiest thing I own and I can't believe I haven't worn it yet this summer. I like pairing pink and grey, so my H&M skirt is perfect with it.

Doing my best Rumi Neely impression at Broadstairs beach yesterday.
The weather was finally nice enough to go the beach, but because this is England, it gets chilly in the afternoon once you come out of the sea, so I bought the biggest jumper I could find with me. The jumper and floral shorts are from Topshop, the sunglasses are from Ray Ban and the Coca-Cola is from the kiosk. I had a white shirt from Zara on underneath as a cover-up for when I was in the sun (you can just see the collar under the shirt).

Even though August has only just arrived, Topshop's fourth A/W collection, Bavaria, dropped last week and it's definitely my favourite of the four. It's filled with gorgeous prints and great knitwear but if I'm going to get anything from this collection, it will be some of the accessories. In fact, it will be this hat (and maybe these earrings).
I saw these gorgeous shoes on the Topshop website about three weeks ago and spent the following fortnight looking at them obsessively every day. I could have ordered them, but being of an awkward shoe size (anywhere between 3 and 5), I had to wait until I went to Oxford Circus to try them on.
When I finally made it to Oxford Circus, Topshop had sold out of size 3, so I tried on size 4, and to my disappointment, the shoes were not what I had expected. As with a lot of glitter-coated shoes, they were quite rigid, but that normal softens out in time. However, they were also hugely wide, but my toes were crushed against the end, which is such a pity, because if they had fit, I'd have bought them and probably never taken them off my feet.
I definitely want a pair of glittery shoes for A/W '11, for wearing with cropped trousers and baggy knitwear as well as to parties. Has anyone seen any good pairs?
