Donald Duck and Jane Austen

3pm stroll around Southampton old town and Ocean Village. We hunted out Jane Austen monuments and tudor architecture.

Also this Zara Donald Duck jumper is toasty warm and, what’s life without a little whimsy? (name that quote) The uni uniform is jeans, denim jacket and interchangeable tops. The same jacket as before because it doesn’t help that I left my other coats back at home, so will have to brave the cold until my return. Southampton is right on the water so there is no protection from the wind.

Five Guys and Pom Pom Hat

I’ve arrived back an uni and went for lunch with my boy friend. The Watermark has opened a few more places ( still no Wahaca though) Five Guys is one of the new ones. I’ve never been before, but the BF has so we ate there. I was a good burger but the fries are really great. I tracked how may calories the whole meal was and it was a lor-a-lot. I had the little cheese burger and little fries with a milk shake.

We took these photos on the run back to my flat. It was freezing cold.

Vintage jacket in Athelhampton

dsc_0004-001

Around Christmas time Dorset comes to life with fairs and events all over the county. Dorset Food and Drink came to Athelhampton House. We wandered the tents looking for Dorsetshire foods and drinks. All the stall holders were locals showing off their craftsmanship. We ate artisan marshmallows, sausage rolls, sampled some alcohol. We tried a “chimney cake” or Kürtőskalács, it was so delicious.

After fuelling up we headed into the gardens to explore.

The comfiest outfits are sometimes the best ones. This shirt and jumper combo is so A/W 16 granny chic without the glasses and cat slippers. Also cropped jeans are going to be in my wardrobe forever. The little bit of ankle showing ands a much needed detail to this look.

Plaid Shirt in Perranporth

dsc_0189

I’ve been on a little Cornish get away with the boy, we stopped in Perranporth for a little look at the beach and the shops. Perranporth is my second favourite beach in the whole world. Last time I was here was in the summer but there is something much more beautiful about a moody winter beach.

It looks like I live in this Long Tall Sally coat, but it’s just the warmest thing I took with me to Cornwall. I’ve been obsessed with with this plaid shirt from Zara it’s so oversized and baggy which suites my student lifestyle to a T. I’ve been wearing it with my trusty cropped jeans and my Ziggy boots from Primark. ( couldn’t wear fancy boots on the sand)

Also I dyed my hair, I’ve been wanting to get rid of my orange ends for a while and not having a spare moment to go to a salon I did it myself in my en suite. I just dyed over my orange with the Loreal Viking dye and i have this much more muted easier on the eye look.

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.

Star Wars Style

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.

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

DSCN1679 DSCN1665 DSCN1623 DSCN1618 DSCN1615

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.

Summer Dress at Cosy Club

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.

DSCN1582

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. DSCN1580

DSCN1583

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.

DSCN1566

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.
