Moon in Leo

Jacket: Vintage
Dress: Moon in Leo*
Necklaces: Sanktoleono*
Boots: Steve Madden

I'm quite like the burnt orange tonal outfit vibes here. I got this dress as a surprise gift from the lovely Mitka who runs the Etsy shop Moon in Leo, and as soon as I opened it it reminded me I had this amazing burnt orange fringe suede jacket that I hadn't worn in ages. I forgot about it because basically 1.) I have too many jackets that I can't remember what I own half the time and 2.) it's quite tight and fitted so you can't really wear it with anything layered underneath so I hadn't actually worn it all winter. But as these pictures were taken before the incredible heatwave the UK is having it was perfect to throw over this pretty embroidered vintage dress and then I lived it in ever since it got too hot to wear. 

I'm absolutely in love with the weather now, I've been praying for sun for so long and Mother Nature finally heard me! This pretty patterned bag from Accessorize is perfect for the summer, it's now sold out on their website (boo) but they do have a sale going on with some really pretty boho bags on there. Shop here. Speaking of sales, you can get 20% off everything on my vintage website this weekend with code SUNSHINE, just enter it at the checkout. There's been lots of lovely new stock added tonight as usual! Shop here. Happy 4th July!

Losing Track of Time

Watch: Filippo Loreti*
Dress: Vintage Jake of London
Boots: Bertie
Bag: Vintage
Necklaces and Bracelet: Sanktoleono*
Sunglasses: Raybans

This has to be one of my absolute favourite vintage dresses. I actually went to my first hen party this weekend and the dress up theme was 'vintage' so of course I wore this pretty thing. I thought it went perfectly with these amazing Sanktoleono jewellery pieces, one of my new favourite jewellery shops, I literally want EVERYTHING. And I've finally got a watch. I realised the other day when my phone battery died and I had no concept of time that I actually really needed one. Plus I'm always late for everything so anything that can help me keep track of time is a good thing.

I'm really fussy when it comes to watches but my new Filippo Loreti rose gold face watch is lovely, it looks like it could be vintage which I love (obviously), it's got a beautiful leather strap and my favourite feature on it is the little sun and moon indicator which I thought was a lovely touch.

Filippo Loreti have also kindly given me a discount code to share with you, so you can get 15% off all their watches for 10 days using the code: 'SARAWAISTE'

Flaring is Caring

Top: Gravel Ghost Vintage*
Dungarees: Nidodileda
Bag: Folk Project*
Sunglasses: Vintage

Wow these past two weeks have been crazy busy for me, and it's about to get even crazier. Apart from literally right now I can't remember the last time I just...sat down. I shot this outfit last week and only just getting around to posting it late on a Saturday night after just finishing work. Ah the perks of running your own business... Anyway I have been pretty much living in these flared dungarees from Nidodileda,they're just so comfortable.

And this 70s top from Gravel Ghost Vintage is pretty much my dream top, the sleeves are incredible and the rose detail on it is so pretty. I'm going to be running an instagram competition on Sunday over on my instagram (@sara_waiste) where you can win $75 store credit to spend in their Etsy store!

Making a House a Home

Cactus drawing, and vintage home sweet home tile: Etsy*
Geometric glass triangle and hexagon: Monti by Monti*
Repurposed storage drawer: Scaramanga*
(Everything else thrifted or vintage)

Ok I'll be honest, I have a hard enough time as it is thinking of witty blog post titles and there's two things wrong with this particular lame title for a start. Number one, I don't even live in a house but a small flat in London and number two, even though I've lived in London for nearly 8 years I think now, I have never once referred to it as home. Home to me will always be up North at my parents house. I think as soon as I start to refer to London as 'home' I know I've really grown up, and I don't want to feel like that anytime soon.

I always have a lot of fun decorating and redecorating my new flat though, after having flat mates for years and never been able to have a lot of space to play with I like going a little crazy with it. My current favourite feature pieces above the fireplace are my Monti by Monti glass triangle and hexagon and my Scaramanga repurposed storage drawer, perfect for storing my little trinkets in, shown here with a few little Etsy finds for my collaboration with them (but more on that exciting project later.) My fireplace might feel a little much for some but I quite like the fact that even though strictly speaking everything shouldn't work together....but they do.
