I love wearing lace, it’s such a decadent fabric. It elevates any casual outfit into something a little more special. This look is very pared down but with lace, it’s a much more premium look. A t-shirt would have been too casual and an evening look too much for the day. Of course very muted accessories. These New Look hoops are getting much more wear then I thought they would. The rainbow jewels add needed colour to this monochromatic look.
The summer has really made Hayden and I explore much more in England. It seems we save the colder months and Winter for travelling. But summer is for staying at home, well for 2018 anyway.
Driving through the New Forest in the evening, we stopped in Beaulieu to grab and drink and see the donkeys. I’ve been to Beaulieu many times to look around the house and go to the motor museum. We stopped into a little tea room surrounded by New Forest donkeys and a few wasps (know anything about me, know I hate wasps) Sitting at quaint little tables with matching tea sets and tablecloths we sipped our drinks. I instantly regretted not getting something cold. So we wandered over to the Montagu Arms Hotel for an iced something and sat in the window thinking about what we should do for dinner and chatting about the day.

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.
