Sorry for not blogging in aaaaages, but it's exam time and all (see 'Quick Ramble'). Anyway here's some photos me & my sister took today, in an exotic new location, haha literally round the corner but it's a change of scenary after all. :-)
Today was a really nice, chilled day, we had a wander round town and had a lovely italian for lunch. I thought I'd feature Katie's OOTD again and make it a proper 'sister' collaborative post, because a) she gets a bit annoyed being behind the camera all the time, and b) yet again she is wearing another outfit I wish I could wear, so it deserved to be part of this post. :-)
As you may already know, I own a hell of a lot of shirts, yet the one I am wore today is the only vintage one out of my collection. My cousin gave it to me from a vintage shop in Brighton; it previously had a large elasticated bottom which I removed to make it into a cropped fit, which I think goes perfectly with my beloved Levi cut offs. I am yet to hem it but at the moment I quite like the slightly freyed edge. To carry on the vintage-ness I added my topshop bag, which I love.
As for the sister's outfit: simple yet cute as always.

I'm really pleased with how these photos have turned out, given that I used the camera on my new phone (HTC One) instead of my trusty Nikon. Which will mean I'll be able to blog more frequently and on the go which is great.
 Also I now have instagram, if anyone would like to follow me, @typicalaquarius :-)

Anyway hope you like the looks,
