Tick Tock

I am well aware that I have neglected Les Petites Fleurs over the past few months, but holidays and nervousness about exam results prevented me from updating! Although I can now say that I am going to study at Cardiff University in September and am extremely excited! If anyone who reads this is from the area, any shopping hints or tips would be greatly appreciated.

The blog is also going to be undergoing a bit of a revamp while I have some spare time on my hands, so any improvements that you can think of (other than fixing my sporadic posting) are most welcome.

As for today's outfit, the dress is one of my favourites. I love how the skirt resembles petals, and the peachy pink colour is so pretty! The clock necklace is once again from Accessorize, I think I am becoming obsessed with collecting their quirky necklaces....





Peach petal dress, £5 from Primark

Mint green cardi, £7 from Florence & Fred

Black leather woven belt, 50p from a charity shop

Gold leather ballet flats in dire need of replacement, £7 from Dorothy Perkins

Cream and blue painted wooden bangle, 20p from a jumble sale

Enamel clock and bow necklace, £3.50 from Accessorize

Congratulations on getting into uni! I think everyone's posting (especially mine) has been a bit sporadic over summer - I think it's because I usually use this blog in term time to avoid doing coursework or seminar prep, but theres none of that in the summer! Love the clock necklace too! :) x
