Sharing one of the most amazing things I’ve ever done with you on the blog today.
One of the most exciting things I’ve ever done, is go to London Fashion Week s/s 2013. I’ve always wanted to go so when I got tickets to the Simone Rocha show at Somerset House I was knocked sideways with excitement.
Back then I was borrowing my mums point and shoot camera and didn’t really have a clue about cameras or how to try and change settings for lighting. These photos aren’t the best quality but I love them.
Can you believe that I sat one row away from John Rocha!! Such a fan girl moment, I texted my mum and couldn’t help shaking with excitement.
The photo quality is super cringe worthy! I’m pretty sure it’s all the adrenaline of being at London Fashion Week, being at an amazing show, sitting so close to John Rocha making them blurry.
Lets talk about the looks: Feminine looks given masculine edge. knotted mohawks, chunky shoes, thigh cut outs relaxed waist lines. A lot of black which i really loved, the light reflecting of the ruffles the pop socks with pearls on. The music reminded me of Daft Punk and I was in love with the whole spectacle.
I hope to share with you more of my fashion memoirs and highlights.
I never knew Truro had boutique shops, independent stores and great places to eat. While I was over in Cornwall with family I was able to explore the city in more detail.
While waiting for everyone to arrive for lunch I ducked into Magpie and Fox, a treasure trove of gorgeous pieces. All unique pieces for all over the world. I snagged this soft denim jacket in the sale and couldn’t be happier, the length reminds me of a pea coat and I love that.
Toasting with a little bubbly 😉

By now you lovely readers should know that I love shoes, like really love them. If I see a pair of shoes that I love I have to have them. This is what happened the other day. My mum showed me there beauties and I fell in love ( I totally blame her ) 😉
Nude, metal, block heel, t bar, buckle, everything is perfect about this shoe. Oh and did I mention they are super comfortable, I could easily do a marathon shopping session in these. These shoes have to be worn with one of my favourite colours, blue. The metal is totally off set and beautiful against my navy jacquard skirt. Of course I couldn’t wear head to toe blue everyday ( even though I love to try) This Zara top is so light and the oversized sleeves are perfect for when the sun finally comes out. Trying so hard to be Parisian, I can dream.
this hexagonal necklace is so perfect, delicate and masculine at the same time, I do love a contrast. I wore

bag – Next polka dot version here

Thank you for reading XO
To say I’m a shoe addict would be an understatement, I bought a new pair of shoes today even. But I want to talk to you about these shoes.I love these Hunter sandals, the jell of the shoe moulds to you feet and sticks like glue, which makes them the easiest to walk in. Also the colour!! I love, love, love fuchsia, a huge pop of colour to my outfit. I really wanted to make my shoes the focus point of this look.

These pajama trousers are so comfy, they were perfect walking around Paris. I didn’t plan to wear a totally black outfit so chose to wear this look on the coolest day. It was still about 20 something.
I love pompoms, this Topshop pompom overlay top is perfect, I tried it on right in the middle of the shop. Even a pompom on my bag. To say I’m obsessed would be an understatement. Can we just admire these sunglasses for a sec. I love mirrored shades and these make me feel super ‘cool’. I call these me space bounty hunter shades.

The Pig On The Beach – Studland.
Where the staff wear converse and pink shirts and the bill is presented in a cutlery case. With the sun out we decided that the best place for lunch was the terrace.
Woodland Chicken & Tarragon Raviolli.
Totally delicious, eating the flowers was quite new to me but totally loved it all, the chicken was so succulent. If I were at home I would have picked up that bowl and slurped up all the juice.
Piggy Bites: Chase Smoked Vodka BBQ Ribs.
Of course I couldn’t pass up ribs, look at them glisten in the sun, the perfect amount of sticky sauce and zingy flavour. After remaining lady like with the ravioli I really couldn’t help myself and mopped up all the sauce. Next time I’d like a table full of these bad boys.
25 Mile Menu: Produce used in The Pig’s menus local sourced!
Mum looking totally gorgeous, being all cool and aloof.
Everyone had the same idea, and were relaxing in the sun, all that was missing was free cocktails, but that would have been a bad idea because I was driving.
As you walk around you notice all the elements that set The Pig apart from the rest, the indoor garden / green house. Totally Pinterest worthy, and great staff that asked if we’d like a cushion to save our behinds on the terrace chairs. The wellies that guests can use that line the front door. The list could really go on.
If you haven’t already I suggest that you get yourself there.
There are a few Pigs dotted around the place, so find your nearest one here The Pig.
The perfect trousers for summer days and nights. There are so many different elements to these trousers that I love. The cropped leg, the bright blue, the pattern. And would you believe that they are comfy and £9!
I love wearing trousers with heels, feels like such a powerful statement. Bought these bad boys without trying them on, thanks to me running again.
