Scouts honour

July 16, 2012
Many years ago I was part of the Marine Scouts back in Portugal. I must have been 13 or 14 and my friend Sónia and I went there at the suggestion of her mum. I didn’t last long there, I found it a bit boring, but I did get the chance to go camping with them for a week once. It was one of the most miserable experiences of my life. It was raining non stop and as you can imagine we were permanently wet. Soon we ran out of dry clothes and it was so bad we had to come back home early. It was still fun. I never had a uniform because I didn’t stay long enough to have one but that’s nothing that can’t be fixed. Better late than never!

Shirt – British Scouts shirt with honour badges, 1990’s, via Ebay
T- Shirt – Joy Division, via Ebay
Skirt – Marks and Spencer , thrifted
Shoes – Monki
Bandana – Primark

This day when I got in I had my ASOS items waiting for me… Sale season is the best! Two of the items had to go back as they didn’t fit properly… the remaining ones will be appearing over the next few weeks. Did you take advantage of the ASOS sales?

    I think this has to be my favourite look from you! Love the mixture of animal print and militar and it has also like modern 50's vibe! I just love it! Great combo! x

    Ah ah! A camisa dos escuteiros está muito bem pensada.;) Também adoro a saia e os sapatos.
    Até pensei em encomendar umas coisinhas da Asos+, mas o dinheiro não chega pra tudo…

    Love this combination you have one. I've always favored a cool texted tee under a great jacket. It's timeless and says so much about a person really. You're very hip!
    I've never ordered from Asos though I do have it bookmarked. I've been wondering about their quality.
