Spring Sunshine

I think spring has finally sprung, I am bare legged wandering around the common at times I thought this day would never arrive. I know that’s a tad dramatic but we kept getting teasers of nice weather then a week of bloody cold weather again, it’s like winter wouldn’t end! Thankfully I can see the sunlight at the end of the tunnel, also I’m counting down the days till I go on holiday to Florida.

Then it’ll be pure sunshine (and maybe the odd thunder storm, florida is know for that in May). If you have any recommendations for Florida and Disneyworld? I’d love to hear them! I’m a tad excited, can you tell? I’ve been planning my holiday wardrobe for ages now and I can’t wait to share it with you! I think this little floral skirt and white trainers will be joining me on vacation. I can’t wait to get some sun on my pale legs!

Nothing Is Real But The Girl

scotland_amy_096scotland_amy_101scotland_amy_103

I’m back! I have enjoyed a lovely week away from busy old London in the tranquil Scottish Highlands.   We enjoyed a whole week without using day to day technology, what I really mean is, we went cold turkey as there was no wifi, emails, phone signal ….like at all. At first it was a bit daunting thinking “how will I update my blog and Instagram account?” But that faded and towards the middle of the week it was quite refreshing actually taking a break from being busy,  including my beloved social media. I came back from the slow pace of rural Scotland chilled out,  it was good for mind and body, but now of course I’m so relaxed and I’m finding it hard to get back into the swing of it all.  Fear not, you know I will be back to my usual posting in no time at all. 
I know you have seen this trusty favourite dress plenty of times before,  I just love it, you have not seen it against a back drop of  this beautiful coast line – I hope the scenery gives you a little taste of my relaxation vibe. These photographs were taken during our break, on a day trip exploring  Otter Ferry .  We ate a delicious pub lunch and took a stroll to walk it off. We took in the beach and wandered past fields full of mummy lambs keeping a close eye on their gamboling new borns – so cute!
I will share more snaps of our day trip shortly, I have plenty of Scottish adventures to share so stay tuned!
Have a lovely weekend all!

Hanging Out In Farringdon

weekend_blog_125weekend_blog_107weekend_blog_137

Sunday Fun-day!

I had the best Sunday I’ve had in a while; Dave, Coco and I headed to Farringdon north London for an afternoon of exploring. Our first stop was Caravan for a take-away coffee. We then headed straight to the park so Coco could have a run around, he played with lots of dogs and made a new BFF who you can see below – his name is Goose (and I loved him!!).

As we were freezing we headed in search of a coffee shop, which allows dogs inside and came across Sweet Boulangerie & Patisserie. I had a cheeky slice of carrot cake and an earl grey tea, while Dave went for a flat white coffee and a flat bread sandwich. I’m looking forward to the summer months and more Sunday afternoons exploring pretty areas of London town.

I’m still waist deep in my 70’s throwback phase – I don’t really like calling it a phase, it’s more of a style choice. I will be sharing my outfit in full glory over the weekend, so make sure you come back for a look-see.

Luxury Lumberjack

Here we are the last month of the year – I can’t believe how fast this year has gone! We are now in the full swing of winter here in London and so far it’s been a mixed bag of weather, some days freezing with crazy gale winds and other days are really mild, like the day we snapped these photos. Now it’s freezing and I’m at home, wrapped up in my pj’s and wearing a scarf ☺️…

Well,  onto the topic at hand – the outfit.  This outfit was worn for a coffee date with Dave and then our Sunday dog walk. It was easy, cosy and exactly what Sunday outfits are supposed to be!  Teaming my flannel Fat Face shirt with a button down skirt, adding my burgundy hat and favourite bag. I’ve added the black version of this black bag to my Christmas list, if you’re still stuck on present ideas for loved ones or fancy getting yourself a gift why not check out my gift edit or secret Santa stocking filler ideas!

Denim Dreams…

park_026park_010park_002This dreamy denim jacket has made it’s way into my wardrobe thanks to the kind folks over at HOF. I choose this light washed denim as I feel it would work perfectly with my summer dresses. I’m so pleased, it’s super soft and I really like the colour. For it’s first outing I dug out this old floral vintage dress, keeping it simple I opted for my satchel and Vans pumps.park_039park_033park_004 park_009What I’m wearing –

New City Tailoring…

blogs_pics_062blogs_pics_072blogs_pics_078For Christmas Dave got me these trainers from Vans and I have lived in them since, they are so comfy it’s hard to choose anything else to wear! As I’ve been wearing my jeans more, I’ve been on the look out for more tops to wear with them and popped into H&M (which I don’t often do these days) but I was pleasantly surprised and picked up this shirt – to make it even sweeter when I got to the till it was half price!

This outfit came together as I  wanted to team my checked shirt with my Vans trainers for that off duty feel – adding my camel coat gave this look a slight tailored and masculine edge. My Tres Chic clutch bag and bold red lippie add soft feminine touches, overall this outfit has fast become my favorite of late and I can’t wait to wear it again!blogs_pics_069blogs_pics_060blogs_pics_075blogs_pics_088 blogs_pics_083What I’m wearing –

Oval Farmers Market…

farmers_market_041farmers_market_023I mentioned in my pervious post about our visit to Oval Farmers Market, so I thought I better share some snaps and boy-o-boy was the food on offer amazing! We had the best grilled cheese sandwiches and coffee, well I had a hot chocolate as I don’t drink coffee… But that grill cheese, I’ll defiantly heading back for that! farmers_market_001 farmers_market_017farmers_market_015farmers_market_019farmers_market_003 farmers_market_005 farmers_market_007 farmers_market_008 farmers_market_012We brought some of this Blackwoods Cheese Company cheese and it is yummy stuff, great in salads! Next time I want to buy more foodie bits from the market as there were some truly great things on offer. Incase your also a SW Londoner the market is in the church grounds (opposite the tube station) and is on from 10am till 3pm.

Let’s Catch Up!

instagram01Hey There!
It’s been a while and I’m awfully sorry for my absence. What with my trip back home visiting my Father for his Birthday, then staying on to help my Mother move house and then having to be back at work, I just haven’t had time for outfit photographs or even to get the ones we took while away off Dave’s camera… I’m hoping to rectify this over the weekend but for now I thought I’d share some of my recent instagram snaps. It’s been a good couple of months for food and drinks!! See you soon, hopefully with a new outfit post 😉

I fell in love at the seaside…

seaside_01

We had a wonderful time at the seaside last weekend visiting Dave’s family. We enjoyed a walk down to the seafront, watched Dave’s father in a yacht race and had a milk shake at the famous Morelli’s Gelato. Where this photo was taken, I love our trips down to the seaside and getting to hang out with the family, below you’ll see Dave’s sister Clare and I posing at the very end of the pier, where there’s a cute café we go to for breakfast where we can see the yachts coming into the finish line. There was two main reasons for heading south for the weekend, first was Dave’s friend was having a relaxed bachelor party in the afternoon and it was his uncles 50th Birthday party later in the evening, all in all a pretty fun weekend.

Keepin’ it simple…

stripe_tee1stripe_teeWith jeans & a striped tee!

These something about a t-shirt and jeans look that I love so much but never been able to achieve until now. I am loving the fact I have more options for getting dressed and can choose jeans if I fancy it. This top will go lovely with a denim skirts and my pinafore dress! There’s something classic that I adore about a striped tee and tan leather accessories. This bag is coming in handy and my go to bag at the moment, it’s the perfect size and these shoes have been a firm favorite for years now!
