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.
Victoria street is one of the places in Edinburgh we kept going back to. There are thousands of streets but this one was a little more magical and vibrant and had so many things to see. Apparently it’s the street that inspired Diagon Alley. How flipping cool, we also went to The Elephant House cafe where J K Rowling started to write Harry Potter. We didn’t pick Edinburgh for it’s connection to Harry Potter but loved seeing all the inspirations.Maison Bleue at night.
We stopped into Maison Bleue in the evening for mulled wine and a mince pie.
We stopped into The Red Door Gallery and picked some prints to hang when we move in together. I really loved that shop, there were so many prints that I wanted. We chose from Mr Peebles and And Smile and a little Edinburgh postcard to go with our Cornwall one.
At the bottom of Victoria Street you’ll find Hula. A perfectly decorated cafe with a huge healthy menu with lost of GF, vegan and veggie options. We never went past when we were in need of food but went in for a smoothie and a cold brew.
The Chia Fields smoothie for me and a cold brew for him.

Can you tell that I love my new denim jacket and shirt?
I walked past this field a few times and thought that the lighting was so beautiful and soft and pink in the evening and the perfect place to shoot this outfit.

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.

and the trousers that sparked my obsession Celine
Getting a cute jacket is one thing, then finding out it’s one of the key pieces for this season is a whole other kettle of fish. I got this jacket purely because it was cute and I love a jacket. Glen Plaid ( Prince of Wales) is all over the blogosphere at the moment and I couldn’t be happier.
I knew that this victorian inspired blouse would be the perfect fit with this look. Really bringing out the 70’s elements, which I am all about. Finally added my mums hand-me-down of a vintage Calvin Klein faux fur bag.
I wore this look to the Dorset Wine Festival at 10 Castle Street, which I’ll tell you all about soon. Thank you for reading.

I spent the weekend in St Albans for my cousins wedding.
My cousin studied fashion at university so I knew her wedding would be beautiful, and it really exceeded my expectations. I wanted to wear something beautiful too, but couldn’t find anything until the last minute. This next culotte jumpsuit is everything I wanted from a wedding guest outfit. Fitted around the waist, loose in the leg to really show of curves.
Accessorised with a few heavy pieces to keep the balance. A woollen trench coat to balance the nude heels and a black Stella McCartney clutch.
