Big City Cat

Cats on clothes are so great. Something about those lil’ furry faces on fabric just feels so darn right. I stumbled upon this gold vintage cat bracelet again over the weekend. It was tucked inside a satchel pocket along with a vintage saucer and a charm bracelet from when I was little. I’m forever putting things in silly places. Storing photos in DVD cases? Yep. Contact lens cases in the fridge? Shamefully, yes. Anyway, it makes for lots of little surprises as you rediscover the downright strange places you’ve put things when you’ve been distracted.

But anyway; cats! I’ve been wearing this dress by Pepa Loves non-stop recently. The weather has been surprisingly warm, and though I may start my journey outside with a coat (this one by Sheinside, specifically!), I have to take it off almost immediately after ten minutes. The cut out back of the dress feels like a little blessing in disguise. And it’s cat print. Cat print, cat print, cat print. That’s basically all you need to know!

Oh, also, I turned 25 on Thursday. Isn’t that weird?! I hope I never-ever start thinking/feeling like I’m too old for silly outfits. Animals on clothing just work way too well for me to start giving ’em up!

  1. Happy Birthday!!! Hope you had a lovely day!!! :)
    Age has nothing to do with self expression I choose to believe, so even though society might dictate for some people to point and mock, I will be wearing silly prints as long as I can dress myself! :)))
    Gorgeous dress, the print, the colour and the cut!
    And love the dreamy hair and contrasting coat!
    Speaking of storing things in weird places, I cannot find my favourite bottle of perfume, so will let you know in what strange place I’ll end up discovering it! :)

  4. Happy birthday! You’re very cute as usual)
    I want to say that the older I get the younger I want to look. Most of my former fellow students are posh women but I still want to wear funny hats and look as unposhlike (is there a word unposhlike in English?) as possible.
    Wish you a lot of inspiration, many ideas, beautiful dresses and journeys!

    • Eep, you are exactly on my level! I’m definitely in favour of dressing ‘unposhlike’ (if it isn’t a word then it definitely should be!) Silly dresses forever! x

  8. Happy Birthday fellow April baby! I just turned 28, so I can see 30 just over the horizon which alternately seems perfectly fine and then terrifying!

    Love everything about the dress. Keep wearing whatever makes you happy!
