(Jacket: Gift, Top: Whistles, Jeans: Topshop, Shoes: ASOS, Bralet: C/O Boux Avenue)

Happy Easter everybody! I hope you've all had a lovely relaxing day with family and friends- and of course, filled with chocolate and sugary goodness. Today I caught up with some long overdue outfit snaps- which felt really good to do! Anyway this was one of the outfits I shot, inspired by Lana Del Ray's girlie Americana look (and not the American 'soccer mom'). I teamed an awesome baseball jacket I received from my friend Gemma a few birthdays ago (when I was in a deep love-affair with The Drums) with my worn jeans, and a plain white tee. I also added my new favourite shoes from ASOS, which although are a little tacky and fancy-dressish I LOVE, and am pretty sure what Marc Jacobs' Daisy bottle would look like if it were a pair of shoes...

Last but by no means least I wore my new favourite piece of lingerie, a pink long-line bra from Boux Avenue, a brand I've fallen a teeny bit in love with. Although I'd by no means ever just do an outfit post in my smalls, the sheerness of the t shirt and a cheeky strap was more than enough for me to channel the 'underwear as outerwear' look and attempt the Lana Del Rey album cover look!

Additionally, the lovely ladies at Boux Avenue are giving one of my readers the chance to win a £50 voucher for Boux Avenue- that's a lot of nice undies and pj's right there! To enter just leave your email address after a comment on this post, and I will email the winner on the 30th April!
