Monkey Print Shirt

Celine debuted a pair of silk trousers with a monkey pattern on them at their AW/17 runway show. They are total heaven and couldn’t get the print out if my head. H&M have reinterpreted the pattern and created a shirt dress ( pictured) and a skirt. H&M added adorable crowns to some of the monkeys. They remind me of Hanuman. Anyone else a real R.E buff at school?

It’s really starting to feel like Autumn, which means I can wear more earthy warm tones. My tan vintage leather jacket paired with my dark brown Osprey are perfect tones to work with the pattern of the blouse ( dress). The pussy bow collar is usually such a frumpy look but paired with a denim mini skirt makes the whole look a little less granny chic and more 70’s hun.

Berry Tones in Autumn

I’ve walked through these parks almost everyday and that it’s Autumn for all the lovely colours are perfect for outfit photos. dsc_0183 dsc_0184 dsc_0185 dsc_0191-001 dsc_0192 dsc_0198 dsc_0199

Do you ever have an outfit that you wear and you instantly feel so festive, this outfit does this for me. The cutest boots from Just Fab. They make any outfit a little more special and a burgundy mini skirt and you are away. I love all the different berry tones mixed with the brown of my shoes and the leaves.

Vesuvio

Saying bye to my work friends started with dinner at Vesuvio, an Italian on the water front in Bournemouth. Last time i was there i had a pizza which was delicious but this time i had a lasagne dish. Which didn’t live up to how excited i was or how hungry i was. A little tasteless but their bellinis are lovely. And the lemon cheesecake was a smash hit.

The Libertine – Westbourne

Westbourne is on route to Bournemouth from Poole, complete with beautiful arcade.

I love getting to know new places to eat. I first went to The Libertine on a double date with my boyfriend and his friends. We went on a Monday and had the buy one get one free pizza. They have a pizza oven I believe. It’s all very Instagramable, the milk churn (?) stools.

While wondering the shops with mum and my cousin we couldn’t decide where to eat, looking in on many different cafes, eateries and restaurants. I suggested The Libertine, so we ordered and sat down.

Sharing the salami and peppadew pizza and the caramelised onion and garlic chicken pizza with sweet potato fries and salad. We agreed that it was totally delicious and well worth the wait ( 30 mins, not bothered)

If you haven’t been over to Westbourne you should give it a try with lots of independent shops and a fair few charity shops to find a previously loved gem.

Pacha Coverup

Finally the summer is upon us, the sun has finally got his hat on! I’m going to celebrate the weather before it disappears!

After work I headed to Shore road for a little sea, sand and sun. I dug out my pacha cover up that was a random item in a River Island sale covered in amazing colours and a total bargain.

70’s Stripes

DSCN1664

My outfit looked so much better without my Long Tall Sally coat, but I knew that I needed it for walking around Poundbury. English weather is unpredictable to say the least. The last time I came to Poundbury there were half the building there are now, which is super odd.  DSCN1651 DSCN1650 DSCN1649 DSCN1661 DSCN1666 DSCN1667

We stopped into my favourite shop Cherryade

DSCN1621 DSCN1622

They are ‘purveyors of super lovely things’ which is exactly what the store is filled with. I want everything they have. The framed art and home-wear are my favourites. Find them online here

Trying to hide from the rain we ducked in and out of shops, and looking at all the pretty houses. We found a little cafe around the corner from Yard, called Bramble.

Trying Trends: Culottes

One trend that I have never really liked was the culotte. It brings me back to my childhood of wearing skorts. Basically I don’t see the point of them.

DSCN1511

Having bigger hips then my waist makes culottes look so frumpy. It really accentuates my hips and I think I look wider then I actually am. But I would have never have known this if I hadn’t tried them out.

DSCN1521 DSCN1522

I now know that they are not my style and I will never wear them again like this. TBH I look like a balloon!! Thank goodness these are my grandma’s and she can for sure have them back.DSCN1531

LBD Masquerade

I spent the weekend in London with family celebrating Georgie and Tom’s engagement by attending their masquerade ball.

MJG_3736 MJG_3708

The whole family really got onboard with the masquerade theme and I think we do scrub up pretty well. I found it really hard to dance with a mask on so took it off to party the night away. Not before stopping by the photo booth the pose.

Winter Party Nights

DSCN1028 DSCN1029 DSCN1036 DSCN1038 DSCN1039

I wore this to my mums Christmas party, she hosts one every year and it’s always a hoot.

I loved wearing kimonos during the summer but thought they would be silly in winter. How wrong was I, they are the perfect party dress coverup. I’ve been listening to Fleetwood Mac  non-stop, which inspired the accessorise. Also I’ve found that I hate wearing tights, they are so uncomfortable.

I WORE

Kimono – love this

Dress – Similar (and in the sale)

Shoes – New Look Similar

Earrings – H&M // necklace – Accessorize ( love, love)

Lipstick – Topshop in motel

Hope everyone is loving that party season and thanks for reading, Amelia XO

This winter I think I’m the busiest I’ve even been with work, college and parties all over December. One of my favourite looks to meet the girlies in is this little skirt and these boots. I’ve mentioned these boots a while ago and I can’t stop loving them. But favourite part of this outfit is definitely this Oasis sparkly top, I love the cowl neck back and the bar across the back. it’s such a great Christmas piece that I’ve been longing to wear. I bought the shirt at last years Clothes Show live ( I’m going to this years Clothes Show!) You could  wear this Christmas day and eat everything on the table and still look great.

I WORE

Hope that you have a great evening, love Amelia XO
