Dip in the pool

Holiday wardrobe

I’ve already had my summer holiday back in May, I went away for a week with the girls. It was devine, a week in the sunshine sipping cocktails by the pool. It was the kind of holiday where we just relaxed, sunbathed and didn’t do a lot else.

Leading up to my holiday I started to look around for swim suits, as we all know, you need a new swimsuit for your holiday. I’ve turned some of my favourites into illustrations. I love these swimsuits from New Look and this high waisted bikini from Shein. Now wishing I had another pool holiday planned so I have an excuse to buy the spotty bikini.

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.

What I’m wearing –
Dress – Oasis
Jacket c/o ASOS
Hair Band – Primark
Handbag – Topshop
Espadrilles & Sunglasses – Zara

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
Jacket – Episode Vintage
Hoodie – Primark
Sunglasses – Zara
Necklaces – Stradivarius
Bag – Topshop
Trainers – Vans

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!

What I’m wearing –
Dress – Urban Outfitters
Hair Band – Primark
Bag – ASOS
Trainer – Vans
