SOFT NEON X GANNI

There is nothing quite like owning a piece from a designer that you’ve been a fan of longer than you can remember. Ganni is this designer for me. A fashion house that plays with style. Working with pattern and shaping to create something that’s both retro and modern. A timeless aesthetic that I’m obsessed with.

This neon seersucker cropped top went right into my basket. There is also a beige colourway. But I couldn’t get over the neon green. I can’t wait to wear this crop with shorts and with bare arms at the beach. The straps are tied in bows but could be tucked away for even more of a 90’s look.

Neon is apparently one of the key trends from Spring Summer 20. Neon is so hard to style without looking like you have just been to a rave. No glow bands here. Just a more 90’s punk/grunge nod to neon. Paired with silver eyeshadow. Super 90’s. A fluffy pink headband to balance the heavy looking outfit. Fishnet socks and flatform shoes.

Still available on Matches in both colourways in the sale. Higher markdown in the neon on Netaporter.com

QUEEN BEE – DOONEY AND BOURKE

A whole look of “old things” Long Tall Sally coat I’ve had about three years ago which I bought second hand. Simpley Bee dress From TK-Maxx from years ago. Newest addition are these boots I thrifted last month. Possibly the oldest and my most precious handbag. A bumble bee barrel from Dooney and Bourke, from about 14 years ago. I remember seeing Emma Roberts being the cover girl for Dooney  13 year old me was living for it.

I begged my auntie to source the bag for my birthday while she was in Manhatten.She bought The Holy Grail home, and it was mine. My auntie bought my the little matching coin purse too. The bag may be a little faded now, but honey, she’s staying for every. My pride and joy. I’d run into a burning house to get her out.

TWEED JACKET BURLEY MANOR

Wednesday is the day for coffee. If you call Wednesday ‘Hump Day’ or not, coffee midweek is needed. Spending the afternoon watching deer roam around a field while sipping a cup of jo really relaxes you. I spend the afternoon at Burley Manor. A stunning 4 star hotel in the New Forest. We sat in their lounge on comfy sofas chatting and relaxing, watching the deer in the park going about their day. Can you imagine how amazing it would be to stay at Burley Manor when it snows, or over Christmas? The cosiest aesthetic with plum colour walls, textured blinds, wood paneling, natural greens in the main lounge and bright, smart rooms to snooze in.

Wearing the comfiest ribbed turtle neck jumper from Marks & Spencer, with a little 80’s pop of a gold chain. layered over with a green tweed jacket. A Long Tall Sally jacket of dreams, with a little fluffy cuff for a little added drama.
