Loving socks and sandals this summer, another rule I enjoy breaking. Can't get enough of these sandals lately, so glad I bought them, and Primark! Can you believe it?! I purchased this shirt last year before the whole buttoned blouses and shirt trend started (JUST SAYIN) and I got all creative and sowed some studs on to give it a bit of an edge. I haven't worn it for ages because most of the studs fell off when I rediscovered it in my wardrobe so I redid it a few days ago. Since I'm the least arty person you'll probably ever meet, I thought it was quite good for me!
These shots were taken by my sister Lindsey, with my new Sony a230 which I bought from my best friend Jodi's boyfriend about a month ago. I'm really happy with the camera and its great not to have to use my phone. (Sony Ericsson Satio)

  10. Hi Monica,

    my name is Sophie i do alot of sets on www.polyvore.com and also run my own small shop www.jeanography.com. I love creating sets from things that have inspired me from everyday life to the latest trends and the blogs that I read - you can check out my sets here http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/profile?id=1512158.

    I've read your blog and would love to create a set that is inspired by your girly vintage style and the love of socks and sandles :) if it was ok with you? You can feature it on your blog exclusively if you wish? The only thing I'd ask is that you give my shop a shout out and a link if its not too much hassle.

    If you'd like to review the shop and or would like a discount code for you and for your readers that can also be arranged - just ask. Finally if you like the Jeans we sell (mainly Hudson Jeans and Siwy) and would like to own a pair and would be willing to review the jeans that you bought I could get you a pair for just over cost price, again email me and we can discuss.

    Thanks for your time
