If you know knitting you know Rowan, I was lucky enough to be invited along to take photos of the 60th magazine edition and have a talk by Kaffe Fassett, in the rose garden of the Royal National Rose Society.
The celebration and talk was held in a rose garden decorated with the most beautiful quilts. I couldn’t pass the opportunity to have my ootd shots taken infront of them.

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.
Piled my hair on the top of my head added some flowers and I was beach ready!

A group of lovely chaps decided to help me with my outfit photos today. I did think they were a little short for storm troopers.
I spent the day at a village fayre, filled with stalls, food and live music. Ofcourse I took some outfit of the day photos on the hay bails at the end.
Have you seen the outfit I wore to the showing of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, here.

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.
We stopped into my favourite shop Cherryade
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.
The 70’s shirt is a H&M find that has been on the blog before. I just love the colour and the flowing sleeves. This time I took of the belt as went for a relaxed look.

I headed out to grab a bite with Lucy from Blogger Luce. We sat, ate, chatted and shopped, I just window shopped (nothing caught my attention, shocking I know) I love chatting with Lucy, I can talk about everything with her, but mainly about blogging today.
The first sign of sun and I’m getting my legs out with this dress. I love this dress, an absolute bargain from Primark last year.
My first ever designer bag got a runaround today. I don’t take her out really ever at all, she’s totally damaged but I’ve had her ages and I just love the pattern and the history. Sparkle ballet flats for all the window shopping.
We ate at Cosy Club Bournemouth | First time I went I had a milk shake which really wasn’t that great. This time I had sweet potato fries and patatas bravas. I know I just ordered a plate of potato, what can I say, I love it. There are Cosy Clubs all over the UK.

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.
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.
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.
This is where I shot my outfit of the day. I mean how beautiful is it.

When a friend decides to take the plunge and start blogging, i think it’s only right to celebrate. One such friend is Blogger Luce, we used to go to school together and I can’t wait to see her blog expand and develop.
Our celebration took us to Camden Bar and Kitchen in Ashley Cross. They also hold an open mic night which is very popular, I’ve been to watch once of twice on a Monday. But we decided that brunch was the best option seeing as we are ‘grown ups’.
We headed for a window table ( natural light for all the photo taking) and a lovely waitress greeted us as soon as out bottoms hit the seats. I knew what I wanted pretty quickly (going out the night before will do that to you) Lucy nano seconds behind.
I went for Eggs florentine Lucy for Benedict, washed down with a coffee and a glass of orange for me.
I always thought I was more of an eggs Benedict girl, but the eggs florentine was so delicious, the lightly salty spinach with the creamy egg balanced out against the hollandaise.
After devouring our food we chatted about life, Lucy’s new camera, our futures….
We paid, chatted to the lovely waitress and headed out into the glorious sunshine to put Lucy’s new camera to use with outfit photos.
All the outfit photos were in my last post here.
There are two Camdens in the Poole area one in Ashley Cross and the other in Westbourne, If you’re not in the mood for brunch head over for a pulled pork wrap or a steak wrap ( they are so delicious) or head there for a night out and grab yourself a tea pot cocktail.

Mini dresses are my go to piece to wear when having an evening out. Is there any better opportunity to show off as much leg as you can.

Relaxed (lazy) style is my everything, picking everyday pieces that are comfortable mixed in with something a little special to create a workable, wearable outfit.
On lazy days balance is key, I don’t want to be wearing dresses that I have to have the best sitting posture in or the jeans that are to tight and show my knicker lines ( hello those 3 easter eggs) I also don’t want to be wearing my scruffy clothes with all the paint stains on.
This embellished jumper caught my eye from across the store, a bold statement from such a basic grey jumper. Paired with my trusty ripped jeans and cognac boots ( for some added hight ) Teamed with my beaded tassel earrings Zandra Rhodes bag and some much needed lipstick to complete my favourite relaxed look.
Jumper – Topshop (old)
