Genderless Clothing & Paleontology

Dippy – Diplodocus | Dorset County Museum 

 Dippy stayed in the Victorian hall which is very fitting for a globe trotting dino. He/She wouldn’t have settled for anything less. Dippy is over 100 years old and tours the globe inspiring new generations of scientists. The next Ross Geller could be among us.

I learnt so much about Dippy but couldn’t find Dips gender, which ties in perfectly to my T-shirt. It’s genderless clothing from Zara. Designed with no gender boundaries other then making a cute shirt for anyone to buy. Of course you can shop in either section no matter what just I really enjoy the inclusivity that Zara are promoting.

If you do get the chance to see Dippy in their tour of the UK please do, you’ll learn a lot and get to be Ross for a day. Next Stop Birmingham.

Vintage Ralph Lauren

 

I wouldn’t say I was a vintage expert, but I do know a thing or two about bargain hunting. My most recent bargain is this vintage Ralph Lauren mens shirt. I love over sized shirts and spotted this one a mile off. If you saw on my Insta stories you’d have seen me trying out how to wear it. The prep look is something I can easily pull together with a subtle jumper over a shirt. As soon as the sun is out you can best believe that this shirt will be worn with shorts and sunglasses. Sat on a beach somewhere, hopefully with a drink in my hand.

Mom Jeans and Leather Jacket

Can you believe it’s May already? Where is the year going? It feels like two seconds ago it was my birthday and that was in January. I can’t wait for the sun to stay out longer then a day so I can  wear dresses and live at the beach all summer long.

Spring dressing is so hard when you live in the UK the cold seams to linger around much longer the needed. I’ve found my spring uniform for this year.

A cropped T shirt, mom jeans and a leather jacket. This one is vintage and was a total bargain. I really learnt from the best when it comes to vintage/antique/charity shopping.

The colour transitions from winter into spring the earthy tones are given new life though cream trainers, and pale blue mom jean. If the sun does pop out, whip the jacket off and enjoy the sun on your skin. When it’s cloudy grab your jacket and dash to the nearest coffee shop for a cuppa.

The tote bag was made by my amazing PR team at uni we sold these bad boys and many others to raise money for a local domestic violence charity. If you are interested in carrying your shopping in something other then a plastic bag.

Vintage Summer

Finding vintage dresses to wear this summer has become my favourite past time. I scooped this one a few weeks ago along with two others that I can’t wait to show you. The capped sleeves, the original cream buttons, it’s a vintage dream. I was super tempted to cut the hem shorter, but love the more conservative look at the length it is.

 Paired with burnt orange/red slippers which are all over the shops at the moment. Mine are Primark and were such a bargain, I’ve my eye one a pair from Public Desire, that are way more extra then these. A wicker basket that is fit for a summer in Italy or at your local beach. Of course you need a pair of purple glasses. They defuse the the orange tone in the sun light, which means you can actually walk around without squinting, also no need to take them off when stopping into stores to buy water and ice-cream.

The ultimate vintage summer look.

Harmonics

Harmonics in Space at the NOW Gallery in Greenwich London.

Such an immersive experience, shoes removed and head phones in, you are encouraged to spend time just being in the space. Harmonics in Space was designed by Fred Butler to combat SAD and to slow yourself from society. The cinematic music was created by Nature Boy to fill your head, and to calm yourself within the 30minutes you have in the space.

Kate Spade in Paris

Just arrived back from Paris and couldn’t wait to show you all the photos I took. This is the look I wore to Premiere Vision on Thursday. I spilt breakfast down my shirt 10 mins after putting it on, what are you going to do?

I wanted to dress smart because it was my professional day going to Premiere Vision so I picked a monochrome look and this Top Shop coat for the pop of colour and excitement. Hair was in Plaits because Paris was so windy and it was much easier to just tie it up. Tie the plaits together for a twist on the classic look.

There will be more Paris posts coming your way soon, so hold on for them. I can’t wait to go back. Hayden and I are thinking in Summer and go to Versailles too.

Feminine White Shirt

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.

Converse from Footway

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.

& Other Stories and Edinburgh

Being able to run around a new city with someone you love is such a unique thing. Wanting to explore a new place with your love, is hilarious and exhausting and you really can’t wait to explore the next new place.

While we were in Edinburgh we drank Iron Bur till we were orange in the face, explored the Christmas market, woke up before sunrise to watch the sun come up over Arthur’s Seat from the Nelson Monument, went to cool bars, drank many cocktails and ate so much food.

Looking back at all the photos from this trip it really looks like I only wore black, white or red for four days. oops!

 

Star Print in Victoria Street | Edinburgh

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.
