 Today I wanted to show you my new pocket watch necklace which I received courtesy of Born Pretty Store. I'm really happy with it; the design is adorable, the quality is great and it's even functional too. I'll definitely get a lot of use from it. I definitely recommend checking out the website. You can find the Classical Bronze Pocket Watch Chain Link Heart Shaped Watch here. They have a great variety of products such as wrist watches, bracelet watches and iPhone 5 cases. Thanks Born Pretty. To receive 10% off enter the code IMONC10.

I've seen a myriad of discussion by bloggers in recent times about enjoying the small aspects of life; it seems that so many people are attempting to focus on appreciating the little things. That's great. For me, one of the greatest small pleasures in life is rediscovering an outfit which I haven't worn in a long time. It's almost as exciting as purchasing a new outfit and it's a small highlight to a day. I'd like to become better at utilising and appreciating my current wardrobe rather than purchasing new things I don't need all the time. However, I have said that millions of times and failed on every occassion. I posted this outfit a few years ago in the earlier days of my blog but I'm not too sure how many of you would remember it. I love the tulle style skirt and, given the recent popularity of tulle skirts, it's an even more appropriate time to start wearing it again. It reminds me of a ballerina or a princess. I like to think the top adds a dimension to the girly nature of this look. I was lucky with the shoes since they are such a perfect match; these have been one of my favourite pairs of shoes for many years now. I can't get enough of my unicorn bag. I love how it's sparkly and glittery. It's pretty much the most amazing bag ever and I'm so happy it's mine! Contrary to what I wrote previously about making the most out of existing clothes, my green coat is fairly new. It's the 'Her Tower Crumbled Coat' from Alannah Hill and I couldn't resist the amazing sale on coats earlier in the year. The polka dot lining is a real feature and I just love how I can turn out the sleeves to show that detailing. I love green lately and I was drawn to this beautiful jewel tone. The collarless design is different from my other coats too.

I love rediscovering an outfit I'd loved before too! Sometimes they get forgotten in a large wardrobe! I just love this cute look you're wearing. You look like a ballerina and that green jacket is wonderful!

Adorable! You remind me of a stylish ballerina. :D

What a lovely and wonderfully feminine outfit!
The Pocket Watch necklace from the Born Pretty Store looks pretty.
Only after having looked at all the photos in your post and gotten to the list of what you were wearing did I realise that what I originally thought was a ruffled blouse is in fact a pretty Forever New Frill Bodysuit. I love ruffles. I also love tulle skirts! The Modcloth Tulle Skirt does remind me of princesses and ballerinas. Your Irregular Choice Unicorn Bag is fabulous and your Diva Houdstooth Hairbow is pretty. Your eye-makeup, lipstick and hair all look lovely. You must take a lot of time and care doing them. Your Alannah Hill Her Tower Crumbled Coat is a lovely shade of green good protection against the elements for your delicate feminine outfit.
