Ye Olde Sweet Shop

The other week I took a visit back to my hometown of Basingstoke, and went to the Viables Craft Centre, just down the road from my family home. First stop was to the darling, authentic little sweet shop, 'Ma Humbugs'. Pastels are one of my favourite trends for S/S 12, so this seemed a very fitting location for a few cheeky snaps of the sugary deliciousness!

Couldn't leave without a little paper bag full of my favourite old fashioned sweeties, rhubarb & custards! It would be rude not to...
I chose a very sorbet inspired outfit for the occasion! Wearing: cornflower blue jumper: Thrifted, flying geese printed flippy skirt: River Island, clutch bag: Arcadia sample sale, primrose yellow ankle socks: Primark,  salmon pink brogues: Office.
Rings & bangles: Topshop, Vintage & Accessorize.
