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.

Jeans – New Look

Boots – Deichmann

Necklaces – Accessorize /  Fashionology

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.

Berry Tones in Autumn

I’ve walked through these parks almost everyday and that it’s Autumn for all the lovely colours are perfect for outfit photos. dsc_0183 dsc_0184 dsc_0185 dsc_0191-001 dsc_0192 dsc_0198 dsc_0199

Do you ever have an outfit that you wear and you instantly feel so festive, this outfit does this for me. The cutest boots from Just Fab. They make any outfit a little more special and a burgundy mini skirt and you are away. I love all the different berry tones mixed with the brown of my shoes and the leaves.

The Stable | Cider and Pizza

I love restaurants that are home grown, where creating thoughtful menus of delicious food is a priority. The glorious people behind The Stable have done just that! I went with a group of friends and my boyfriend to try out their pizza and cider.

Stable are a Southern company from my childhood county of Dorset. Their Bournemouth location is a recent addition to the family and we sat at a long bench and chatted and eat and drank.

dsc_0027 dsc_0028

Their interior design is so Instagramable and still smells very new. Menus are on clip boards and you are given a number block when you order at the bar.

The cider taster board that my friends ordered. I’m a picky drinker so I don’t think I would have liked this but oh my, it looked good. I had the Devon red which was not as fruity as i would have lived but it was great.dsc_0031 dsc_0032

The guy and I ordered The Lamb Roast and The King Crabber and switched half way so we could try each others. The King Crabber was amazing, the crab meat was light yet tasty and then I squeezed some of the lemon on the pizza and it could have seen fireworks for how delicious it was. From a solid 8 to a full 10 out of 10.

I can’t wait to go to my Southampton The Stable now I’ve fallen in love. Also they have a pretty big vegan menu.

SoundClash 2016

Sound Clash 2016 – Somerley House Hampshire

Soundclash is the last event of freshers, I’m not really into the type of music that was played. But it was the last event of freshers so it seamed right to send freshers off with a bang.

Considering I’m not really a fan of club music I did watch a few sets and really enjoy them. I enjoyed Marvin Humes, Artful Dodger. I really came to see the Wilkinson set and Pendulum do a DJ set, they were the highlights for me.

Vesuvio

Saying bye to my work friends started with dinner at Vesuvio, an Italian on the water front in Bournemouth. Last time i was there i had a pizza which was delicious but this time i had a lasagne dish. Which didn’t live up to how excited i was or how hungry i was. A little tasteless but their bellinis are lovely. And the lemon cheesecake was a smash hit.

Harry Paye Day 2016

Harry Paye day is an annual event held on Poole Quay every year on the 18th June, but I’ve only been this year. You dress up as a pirate and have a laugh with your friends while you raise some money for local charities.

I pulled on my boots and bandana and dashed to meet my friend before everything finished. I made it just in time to watch the last band play and eat an ice-cream.

It’s amazing that you can pull a costume together with a tan belt, lose shirt, knee high boots and a bandana.

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.

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.
