Awesome & awkward – The gulf stream edition


fishtail tee – TopShop c/o Silverburn (last worn here)
leather short – TopShop (last worn here)
flicker shoe – Aldo (last worn here)
scarf (worn braided in hair bun) – Accessorize, aviator – H&M
woven bag – Mango
watch – Michael Kors, bracelets – various
Picadilly Circus nail polish – Nails Inc.

leather lead – vintage Oakberry
coat – model’s own c/o Infindigo 


– Against all odds it seems, for a couple of days at least, the gulf stream has indeed changed.
– Evening drinks on the sunny doorstep with neighbours like we’re in an episode of Friends or something; living the dream.
– Shorts as acceptable workwear.
– Cuddles with the tiniest puppy chihuahua in the park.
– Being featured on the major US site Refinery29 and a full page article about ThankFifi in The Evening Times yesterday (you can see a snap on the Facebook page).


– Arguing with the husband that The Evening Times must be on sale only in the evenings… and being oh so painfully WRONG.
– Cuddling the tiniest chihuahua.  I smiled.  She licked my teeth.
– Scott Pilgrim Vs The World.  Scott Pilgrim you ruined ‘early bed night’.  Everything was in place but you and your terrible movie led us to sourcing an alternative 1 hour in and then, what do you know, when the alternative finished, it was late.
– Dog diahorrea and cream carpets (ironically I first mistyped that as ‘crapets’).
– Heels in grass – yeah, that’s what’s happening in that photo just down there…

Wishing you all a weekend more awesome than awkward!

    Aww, what a cute dog! He’s a finnish lapphund, I assume? He looks just like my dog Lenni – although Lenni is black and looks like a very big puppy.

    You are cute too (and I love those shorts!) but Mr K got me distracted :–D

    Greetings from Finland,

    • Wendy
      29 Jul / 6:43 pm

      Yes he is! Big hugs to Lenni πŸ™‚
