Squint and I’m at some cool garden party networking brunch, but in reality i’m in my grandma’s garden. She’s got such green fingers her garden looks amazing all year round.
I’m feeling this look so much, worn for my mums birthday to just communicate that she means more to me then me wearing my usual boring uniform. When your mum has a birthday, you pull the stops out you make an effort. Show your appreciation through your outfit choice. If you saw in my Insta stores I wore this look to Stewarts Garden Centre then Networking (it’s the outfit for every occasion) It’s the versatile outfit of the season, you saw it here first ( kidding).
This look was such a talking point at the networking even i went to, that someone said I made their day by wearing it. When you are self employed you can wear what you like, you can break the mould of suits and corporate wear.

Frolicking in a field v.s. freezing in the snow. I wanted to shoot this top for so long. I took it to Paris but never wore it. So in a free moment with Hayden we went and shot in a field somewhere. Then it snowed and I couldn’t pass up the chance to wear it in the snow.
How to wear an evening look during the day.
The easiest way to wear an evening look during the day is trainers. Simple mono chrome, tonal trainers/sneakers. Mine are Converse* from Footway, They have faired so well and look amazing still and are the easiest shoes to clean. And nude lips as soon as you whack a lip on it’s a completely different look.
Just by adding come key elements you can change the look completely. Add a luxurious coat. Thins heavily one is a vintage inspired one from M&S and is so versatile. It’s not a classic trench but more a 70’s hair band style coat.
Accessories to add to make this look an evening looks is a small handbag. This Folli Follie one is perfect, fits just the essentials and adds that pop of colour. Purple is a big colour this season. Jewellery is always a safer bet in the evening. Go for gold for a classic look or silver to be more modern.

Tartan dress in Palais Royal
I’ve seen so many bloggers here and just didn’t think we’d have time to go here. I wanted those blogger photos so much. I saw that we could cut through to get to our destination one day and found this place. I loved it so much we came back more then once. Make it your mission to go here.
The tartan dress in a Zara piece which I’ve been waiting to wear as such for a few weeks. I’ve worn it with jeans but never as a dress. I think from now in it’s just going to be a dress. I felt super chic with the asymmetric hem and cuffed sleeves.

I am in of summer.
I feel like it’s been an eternal winter and can’t wait to be able to get my legs our even more. There was just the hint of sun recently and I got so excited, I dug out this denim skirt and felt very summery. I think everyone around me thought I was crazy because they were in gloves and scarves.
Anyone else in love with the hairband trend for SS/18? I’m so glad I kept this one from years ago to work into looks for this season. Versace, D&G and Elisabetta Franchi all showed gold head wear in their SS/18 shows.

It’s almost spring and I’m so excited to wear cotton dresses and feel the sun on my skin. Fingers crossed for a few trips away in the sun. The sun finally came out for a few moments and I couldn’t wast the opportunity of wearing the best buy of 2018 so far. Broome Street peplum shirt from Kate Spade is heaven. I’ve been on the hunt for months for a crisp white shirt and found exactly what I was looking for at Bicester Village. If you’ve not been, really do go. The is a plethora of shops for you to take advantage of.

Do you guys know about footway yet?
I am so excited to talk about these Converse with you. Footway contacted me and asked if I wanted to be sent a pair of shoes to review. Of course I said yes. I had never heard of Footway before but I can see myself shopping on their site again.
Footway present the different types of shoes you can pick in a visual table. Black silhouetted shoes are lined in rows for ease of navigating to the shoes of your dreams.
I knew right away that I wanted trainers and looked through so many options. These mesh leather parchment Converse are a god send. It snowed the day before these photos were taken and I was worried my feet would get cold, but my feet wear toasty warm.

Aren’t smart trousers everywhere? I finally found a pair that are cropped and a little different to the pattern you see everywhere. I wore them all day and they were the comfiest pair of smart trousers that I think I’ve ever worn. Added a V neck jumper and some leopard print court shoes. SS/18 is all about interesting heels and the heel in these shoes are so chunky but with a tapered edge.
And yeah you can see my tummy in this jumper, so what. I felt great in this outfit and don’t really care that you can see my tummy. I think I look cute and sassy and that’s all that matters. Move on.

Shout out to my mum for the photos.
I challenged myself with every element of this outfit. Having so much bare leg on show, huge hoop earrings and a white lace dress. I’ve never felt more etherial then I do in this dress. The lace dress has been sitting in my wardrobe for over 2 years not doing anything. I loved it as soon as I saw it but never had the balls to wear it out.
A super summer statement with gold accents. My shoes are so perfect, I wish I bought more then one pair of from Next’s clearance and big gold hoops which i bought for a halloween costume and have since migrated to my everyday jewellery and a Bill Skinner cat ring.

Dungarees have been in every store these past few years. Each season brings a new twist to the game. I’m really into this trend but did’t want to look like every Bert and Harry walking down the street in dungarees so I scooped up this little gem from a vintage kilo sale.
A denim pinafore.
If you’ve not been to a kilo sale you have to go, you pay by the weight of the item and come away with something no one else has. They are the perfect way of sprucing your wardrobe without hitting the bank to hard.
I went full 90’s mixing the denim pinafore with a striped t-shirt, trainers and colourful sport socks. The a-line dress with the pockets is so 90’s and the little strap on the side.

Taken in and around Bournemouth Gardens.
Have you guys been on the Bournemouth Wheel yet? the views are spectacular.
I love the yellow of my sunglasses mixed with the yellow of my top and finished off with my yellow gold shoes. A super yellow themed outfit. Yellow isn’t a colour I thought I could get away with, with my hair and skin tone but I absolutely love the combo.
I can’t take these shoes off, they are so beautiful, I think they spice up any outfit. I get the odd compliment when I wear them too, which is a bonus.
I made this silk holder top out of a vintage scarf when i was about 16 and love it. The vibrant yellow/green and the bold flower pattern are a needed statement to this outfit.
