Topshop in Paris

Forever trying to get that shot. This pillar was so high but looks so small. I was so nervous, thinking I’d end up in french A&E from falling off it. So ridiculous I was shaking like a leaf.

A love poem to my new coat…

It’s long, it’s blue I wore it to the lo(uvre) …?

I am obsessed with this coat. Full credit to my friend Marshaine for showing it to me because I love it so much. I needed a new coat to replace my red one (which is falling apart) and I can’t get enough of it. The coat reaches my knees which is such a comfort for me because I am so tall and over sized things just look average on me. The high pockets, lets talk about the pockets. They just under the boob area, also knows as the waist. Giving the coat some shape and to not make it look like i’m wearing a sack.

Hair in a low bun because that Parisian wind in no joke. Later in the day we went up the Arch de Triumphe and my hair was all over the place so a chic low bun was the only option.

Tartan Dress in Palais Royal

Tartan dress in Palais Royal

I’ve seen so many bloggers here and just didn’t think we’d have time to go here. I wanted those blogger photos so much. I saw that we could cut through to get to our destination one day and found this place. I loved it so much we came back more then once. Make it your mission to go here.

The tartan dress in a Zara piece which I’ve been waiting to wear as such for a few weeks. I’ve worn it with jeans but never as a dress. I think from now in it’s just going to be a dress. I felt super chic with the asymmetric hem and cuffed sleeves.

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.

Mini Skirts and Alice Bands

I am in of summer.

I feel like it’s been an eternal winter and can’t wait to be able to get my legs our even more. There was just the hint of sun recently and I got so excited, I dug out this denim skirt and felt very summery. I think everyone around me thought I was crazy because they were in gloves and scarves.

Anyone else in love with the hairband trend for SS/18? I’m so glad I kept this one from years ago to work into looks for this season. Versace, D&G and Elisabetta Franchi all showed gold head wear in their SS/18 shows.

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.

Body Positivity

Aren’t smart trousers everywhere? I finally found a pair that are cropped and a little different to the pattern you see everywhere. I wore them all day and they were the comfiest pair of smart trousers that I think I’ve ever worn. Added a V neck jumper and some leopard print court shoes. SS/18 is all about interesting heels and the heel in these shoes are so chunky but with a tapered edge.

And yeah you can see my tummy in this jumper, so what. I felt great in this outfit and don’t really care that you can see my tummy. I think I look cute and sassy and that’s all that matters. Move on.

& 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.

I wore

Coat – Long Tall Sally

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.
