Happy Diwali everyone!! It’s been crazy here today with all the EXTREMELY LOUD NOISES but it’s finally beginning to quiet down, which is a relief. I took some photos of the lights as well, which I’ll post later!

I’m wearing an old ASOS dress, thrifted loafers, a velvet beret from the 40s, and my adorablest dachshund necklace from Eclectic Eccentricity Jewellery. They have the most wow collection of doge accessories I mean will you just look at this pupe here :’)

I took these photos (with a little help from my colleague Pathika) and then I more or less just jumped into the sea and spent all morning swimming. It was one of the most glorious experiences I’ve ever had. I’m too exhausted and sleepy to go into any detail about it, but I did spend about 10 years dreaming of swimming in the sea, which might explain how I feel about it. I was born to be in water.

The coat was gifted me by Choies, and it’s lovely and snuggly and the perfect tartan coat I’ve been wanting for ages. The dress is one of my current favourites and I tend to wear it a lot - it’s still available in a couple of sizes at ASOS. The woolly socks are c/o Tabbisocks and they are quite amazing. They’re big enough to accommodate calves a few sizes larger than mine and they’re not the least bit scratchy and uncomfortable, which is amazing. I love socks like that. And finally, the glasses are the London Retro Nancy frames from AW13 that were gifted me by MyOptique last year, but I’ve only got proper lenses put in them recently because I’m a bad blogger boo hiss
