Rainy Day’s

Exploring Glastonbury

A couple weekends back we spent a rainy weekend in Glastonbury with my parents, although it was really rainy it was a bloody lovely weekend.

While exploring the town we found a cute ally way and wandered down and took some snaps. I’m wearing my new favourite trainers from Vans, they are a mixture of three different animal prints. Dalmatian spots at the front, with zebra sides and leopard print at the back. I also love wearing them with my spotty dress, the mix of prints is my favourite.


Then it was time for a spot of lunch, after popping into about 4 different cafes non of which were being suitable for Dave. They were all vegan or veggie, we eventually found one that was suitable, it was rather cute and had a Parisian vibe to it. Where I had the cheesiest tuna jacket potato ever!

Then it was off to explore the Cheddar Gorge and then find a good pub to spend the rest of the afternoon playing card games.

Visit To Dreamland

Back in April we spent Easter weekend down in Kent, you can see more from this weekend trip here, here and here. We always try make a trip to Dreamland while down at Dave’s parents. It was great to visit a year on from our wedding there, it truly is one of my favourite places. If you are ever down in Margate make sure you take a visit.

Wearing my summer uniform of midi dress, leather jacket and trainers. This is my fail safe uniform and this dress is perfect for those days when I’m stuck for what to wear I grab this dress, it’s effortless and easy to wear. This weekend we were lucky enough to have a sunshine. It made for wandering around Dreamland the ideal Saturday afternoon activity.

Summer In The City


London Sunshine

There is nothing better than London in the sunshine, on a sunny weekend we headed for our usual coffee date. Getting up early on Sunday and taking our usual stroll through the common and into Balham, past all these beautiful houses. It’s one of my favourite back drops for a couple of snaps. I often dream about one day owning a house like this, for now that dream is a long way away!

Let’s talk about this outfit – I’m wearing my new denim dress. As we all know I love a midi and this denim chambray one is the perfect addition to my wardrobe. It’s the perfect summer dress, not too thick and as it’s plain it is perfect to wear with printed accessories.

My obsession with hair accessories continues and any chance to wear this leopard beauty I jump at the chance. It goes perfectly with this denim dress, expect to see this pairing throughout the summer.

Little White Dress

Summer Glow

I’m back off my holiday, and back to rainy old Britain! I spent last week in Fuerteventura with my two gal pals, sunning it up, relaxing, doing a spot of shopping and tapping up that free bar!
I’m back at work and the weather is just been tipping it down. Thankfully I still have my holiday glow to get me through the rubbish weather.

On a brief break in the rain, Dave and I had a date day. Starting off with brunch, then heading to the cinema and ending the day with a Wagamamas. It was great to spend some quality time with him after being apart for a week. We snapped these photos in the middle of our date day.

I wanted to wear my new white dress for two reasons, firstly its new and I’m always obsessed with new clothes and secondly it shows off my tan. Now compared to my two friends, I’m not that tanned but for me this is a blooming good tan.

This weekend marks Dave and I’s first wedding anniversary, I’m putting together a especial post to mark our first year as a married couple.

What I’m wearing –
Dress – New Look

Day at Howletts

Hello Sunshine!

We had a lovely Easter bank holiday weekend down in Kent.
Visiting Dreamland, walking along the sea front and a family day out to Howletts Wildlife Park. I have a funny relationship with Zoo’s, I love visiting them but also can’t help hating seeing the Animals in cages and wish they didn’t have to be locked up. It’s a strange one, as lots of the animals were born here and unable to be realised into the wild but thankfully some of the offspring have been able to be released back into the wild which I was delighted to hear. We actually were lucky enough to have a really good chat with one of the ladies who worked for Howletts and she was telling us about the breeding, and how its a conservation charity and about the work they do to releasing animals back into the wild. You can read more about the work they are doing here.

I’ve been saving this dress for a special occasion, it was a birthday present from my Mother – she knows my style very well! This linen dress served me well in the mini heatwave we’re having. I’m also sporting my newest hair band which I picked up from Primark. They are just so good and affordable, I thought this leopard print one would go perfect with my tan dress. I really wanted to bring a straw bag with me to use for this look, but unfortunately we were limited on what we could bring due to getting the train down. Dave’s car was in for it’s MOT, it was a pack light and jump on a train affair, thankfully we were able to drive the car back home. It’s one of those pack light situations and had to make do with my daily handbag.

I’ve just got back off on a girls holiday to sunny Fuerteventura. I took this dress with me but I swapped out my my trainers for sandals and packed my straw handbag!

Trip to the seaside

Seaside fun

How glorious was the weather over the Easter bank holiday weekend. With weather this good there was only one place to spend it and thats with a walk along the seafront.
With Dave’s parents living in Broadstairs and only a stones throw from the beach, it would be rude not to visit on such a sunny weekend.

After a stroll along the main sea front we slipped off to Stone bay, which is slightly quieter than the main beach Viking Bay. This is the ideal spot for walking dogs and taking outfit photographs like we did.
With hardly anyone around it makes the perfect location, Dave could snap away and I could pose without getting embarrassed and pulling awkward faces while people stop and stare – you’d think after all the years I’ve been doing this it wouldn’t bother me but sometimes it really throws me off my stride when someone comments or stops to stare at our blogging shoot.

We had lots of fun taking the snaps and exploring the beach. Climbing over rocks, running away from the tide, saying hello to cute dog and just spending one on one time with Dave. I’m off on a girls holiday next week, so soaking up time with Dave before I leave him for a week – soppy sod, I know!

Easy Like Sunday

Wind Swept

I’ve had a weekend where we haven’t got up to much. Having to work on Sunday ruined our usual routine of walking to our favourite coffee shop and the weather on Saturday called for a lazy day on the sofa. It’s actually been nice and chilled, well except for working on a Sunday (all in all it wasn’t a bad day). I definitely over estimated the sunshine thinking it was super warm but it wasn’t. In fact it was bloody freezing! I thought my hoodie and leather jacket would keep the chill at bay but I might need to dust off my winter coat tomorrow.

This skirt is another of my new monochrome recent buys, getting it on my staff discount made it a rather good bargain. I think I’ll get plenty of wear out of it over the summer months. It’ll work perfectly with my slogan tees like this Topshop one, not that you can see the slogan much as my hair is covering it, doh! The skirt will work equally well with a plain black tee too.

I’m pleased with how my summer wardrobe is shaping up, just need the weather to get on board so I can ditch the layers. I’ve also got my eye on a couple of cute bags, sandals and a dress or two for my holiday at the end of April. I’ll keep you posted on what I end up buying for it.

Polka-dot Dress Of Dreams


Windswept Outfit Of The Day

Like I mentioned in my last post I’ve recently brought a couple new monochromatic pieces and this spotty Zara dress is probably my favourite.
These photos were taken on what was possibly the windiest day of the year – meaning most of the snaps weren’t any good.

I was wearing this look for running errands, coffee date and just before going to do our weekly shop I got Dave to snap some images for the gram and blog. You know how it is, quickly squeeze in a photo shoot where we can. I’m in love with this dress and will no doubt be making another appearance here in it very soon. Hopefully on a sunny day with zero wind! That way I can show it off with more detail.

Teaming my red bag to match my hairband, I do love to coordinate! To give the look a little twist I’ve added my checked vans. They were brought on a whim with birthday money. They were discounted and I thought why not, I’m so glad I did, they have fast become my favourites. I love clashing them with other monochrome prints.

Its the perfect transitional dress. For its first outing I’m wearing with red accessories. There is something about red with black and white that you just can’t beat, its a classic and I love it.
My current love affair for hair accessories isn’t wavering any time soon. This red number is another Primark one, they are such good value and have so many options to choose from. I’m working on a post all about my favourite hair accessories which I’ll be sharing very soon!

Spring In My Step

Little Gingham Dress

I’ve always had penchant for monochrome but recently this love affair has grown and I’ve been lucky enough to introduce a couple new monochromatic gems into my wardrobe.
Starting with this little gingham dress. There are so many reasons why I love it, from its vintage vibe, gingham print and finally the fit.
Its hard this time of year, its not warm enough to ditch the layers (just yet) then we have a couple of days of warm sunny weather where it’s too warm for a leather jacket. It was one of those warm days yesterday, I while out for a walk I had to take my leather jacket off as I was over heating. Then I’ve woken up today to grey Skys and a drop in temperature. It’s a mind-field getting dressed I never know what the weather is up to on the daily.

When choosing what to wear in these ever changing temperatures I opt for a midi dress – now I’ve ditched the tights since January, which I know won’t be for everyone but I just hate wearing them. I often find my legs don’t get cold as long as the rest of me is layered up. Wearing jumpers and a hat to keep the heat in if it’s a particularly chilly day. To me, midi dresses are perfect for transitional dressing. They can be layered up if needed and can be the perfect statement dress when worn on its own. This little shirt dress could be layered with a polo neck underneath for the colder months (plus worn with tights if you so wished) and with ankle boots, then ditch all that for the summer.


This dress has the perfect vintage vibes, its giving me all the Audrey Hepburn feels and I am here for it. I felt good in this dress and I’m sure you’ll be seeing it a lot more over the warmer months. I have ideas for styling it with statement bags and summer sandals. For now my espadrilles are out as it’s not quite open toe weather just yet. I am in full spring mode and the straw bag has made an appearance and I’m hoping the sunshine comes back so it can get some more outings. I may have sprung a little too early but I am excited for more sunny days and summer styling.

Santa Monica Pier

Santa Monica Pier At Dusk

Back with my second post from my LA postcard series. This time I’m sharing our evening spent exploring Santa Monica pier. It’s such a fun place to visit with neon lights and plenty of rides to go on. It was one of my favourite places we visited. Defiantly planning our return and to make more of that beautiful sandy beach!

I knew Santa Monica would make a great photo opportunity. It was great coming from cold and very rainy London to LA where it was perfect leather jacket wearing weather, I was able to dig out all my favourite summer garms for this trip.
This floral jumpsuit is one of my absolute favourite items of clothing I own, so naturally I opted to wear this for such a fun location. I styled its with this little pink bag to add an extra pop of colour and my trusty leather jacket to toughen the florals up a little. Also wearing trainers making it easier to explore and for comfort, I always opt for comfort. Plus I like the mix of girly florals with trainers.
