strung out in heaven's high

Hello again! I'm back! Finally, after what seems like a lifetime, I'm actually posting again. (sorry about the scheduled posts. and the lack of outfits etc etc) I'm completely home and sorted now and plan to go back to (or start) regular blogging, hopefully.
So as you probably already gathered, I spent the two weeks of Easter on a sort of Italian roadtrip for my mum's birthday, which was AWESOME and amazing for so many reasons, the main one being I got to see so much of Italy in such a short space of time (and I managed to take literally my entire wardrobe with me). I spent the time pretty much living in my dungarees, which I got from Episode (cute little vintage shop round the back of Camden market) for £10 without trying them on, and they fit and I love them and they look great with my little badges and they are so freaking comfortable.
 
 
We drove through Mont Blanc and the scenery was so amazing, so I got my dad to take a few pictures...I'm wearing my dungarees from Episode, lace tights from H&M, a lace shirt (worn under) from a charity shop, camoflage top & sunglasses from Camden market, shoes from Office and socks from Topshop. I felt incredibly lacey but I love lace so you know, all's good.
 
 
I don't know why but I seriously felt like I was in Twin Peaks. It just reminded me of the intro so much, so I was half expecting to end up a part of a murder case, if you get my drift. I spent the entire drive looking for the 'Welcome to Twin Peaks' sign.
 
 
 
I just felt super dreamy the whole time, here's a little idea of what I had in my brain:
 
 
 
 
Bob Dylan fits the vibe perfectly. I just think of pastel coloured flowers, disposable cameras, twirling around in long skirts, and drinking homemade lemonade, with his perfect voice spilling out of a portable record player somewhere.
 
 
 
(all above images from tumblr. (except the first one of the mountains, which my dad took) If you want me to source any/take any down etc then just leave me a comment!)
 
I intend to be blogging as much as I can over the next few weeks, and I'm also going to start updating my lookbook again, so please check that out over at http://lookbook.nu/ellie_c . thankyou so much! I also have to have a little cry/fangirl/moment of silence to celebrate the fact that one of my blogging/style gods Kayla Hadlington followed me on lookbook...my life is officially complete. (check out Kayla's blog > here <)
Also, I'm getting a little freaked about GFC, as apparently it is being abolished in May (could just be a rumour) so if you would be so kind and follow me on bloglovin to keep up with my posts, I would be so greatful! Thankyou!
