Coeur de Pirate - Comme des enfants

When a lack of a summer job for the first time in four years and thus, an overspill of empty hours threatens to haunt me, I do what any self-respecting girl would do; go shopping. Recently, jewellery seems to be my Achilles heel and I’ve obtained numerous necklaces and a few rings, all from Topshop. The necklaces are delicate, on short chains and can be layered to encircle my neck in pretty golden rings.

Two were bought in the sale for a mere £2 each (the “B” and the tiny glass ball, but ignore the ugly neon chain, I’m going to slip the B onto a simple gold one asap).

My skull necklace was £5 – reasonable for Topshop, though I’ve had to transfer it onto another chain because my 1st one broke AND so did the replacement!







I also ADORE my ring, as it was also only £2 (though it does make my finger a wee bit green).


Does anyone have any recommendations of cutesy jewellery shops? I’m on a glitzy roll! I want rings, necklaces, earrings, cuffs, anklets – THE LOT!

Those little necklaces are so cute.

I want everything from Galibardy but it's expensive :( I've found some lovely jewellery in Miss Selfridge recently though so that's probably worth a look! Their rings seem to be huge though as I need to get an XS! xo

Topshop had some brilliant jewellery in the sale I always think Dotty P's has some nice bits and bobs too.

That ring is so pretty - really topshop?! I popped in there the other day, but I do find my tolerance levels towards the crowds getting a bit low nowadays so I made a relatively swift exit ;-)

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog, it's always so nice to "meet" other bloggers from LDN! Have a great week xo

PS: great nails - I just don't have the attention span needed to re-create anything like it...

I have that ring! :) To stop green-ness on fingers, coat the inside of the ring with clear nail polish, it should stop it for a while :) xx
