Perfect world

#teenvogue // COS top, TOPSHOP skirt, ZARA heels, LACAMBRA bag (c/o) and SPITFIRE sunglasses

Oddly enough this is the first time I've worn heels since summer holidays started. I don't know what it is about summer that just makes me want to abandon all effort, kick my feet up and sleep for two months...actually, oh wait! I do know what it is; school. Anyway, that's all over with now. These connotations of summer and relaxing are probably the reason I want to kick off any form of shoe like object and roll around in the grass like the half golden retriever, half human gal I am. I suspect it also has something to do with the fact that we generally wear less clothes in summer. Winter comes and we layer up in our clothing cocoons and add some heeled boots to somehow make 10 layers of wool elegant. Then, summer arrives, we strip down to the basics and suddenly we don't need an extra 5" height to feel sultry. However after emerging from a week of eating (healthily, I might add, go me!), bike riding, running and sleeping I finally felt ready today to murder my feet.
Just kiddin', these shoes are what, 3'' high? Ain't no big thang. 
And now to begin tackling that summer reading list...Frankenstein, here I come (in a metaphorical sense, you're unlikely to find me chasing zombies now that I just survived the first year of A-levels.)
