Magical Sleeves & Blue Patchwork

Earrings~H&M/ Blouse~H&M/Dress~Primark/Shoes~Topshop

Hey again guys!

Happy Friday!
This week has gone super quick and I have been really enjoying settling back into Devon life.
There are just so many quirky buildings and flowers that are perfect to take snaps in front of.
Not to mention just how colourful everywhere is.
Simply lovely. 
After having a bit of a fear of taking the plunge to join the denim dress trend,
I finally jumped on the band wagon...
and boy am I glad I did.
My hips are a lot bigger than the rest of my frame, 
so finding the right denim number was tricky. 
But low and behold, Primark came through in true form and now me and this garment
are basically inseparable. 

Ohh and if I could just have a moment to mention the sleeves on this shirt, 
they really have a mind of their own.
 Great for swishing in or fanning yourself while flustered!
I've always been a bit of a sleeve girl-the bigger the better I say :)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend
Enjoy the last few sparing moments of warmth in the daytime

Lots of love

Moving Back To The Countryside

Jumpsuit~Topshop/ Shoes~Topshop

Hello there!

After another long old absence from blogging (my sincere apologies), it feels like for the first time in a long time-I am free to do the things I love.
Blogging included, of course.
For after seven long years living in the city of London,
 I have moved back to Devon for the foreseeable future.

Seeing as I have become a bit of a traveler these days, exploring Europe and the like as
often as I possibly can-London and the city no longer felt right-
For me anyway.

So, here I am in a field brimming with ripe sweetcorn,
wearing my most favourite purchase of the late summer. 
My Topshop floral jumpsuit.
I have,
quite literally,
worn it to DEATH. 

It makes me feel very happy that Autumn is now here,
bur also a little sad
 that these sunny bright days are going to be few and far between from now on.
I am just going to try and embrace being back in the countryside, 
get back on my bike and enjoy the simple things. 

Speak soon 
Lots of love always

Greenhouse Botanicals

Beret~Vintage/ Bows~Vintage/ Top~Zara/ Skirt~H&M

Hey there!

It has been a mad old week, rain and shine all at once. My sister and I took a very much needed sibling outing on Sunday and wondered around the Royal Botanic gardens in Kew. I love going there every now and again to remember that London isn't all dull and grey, there is still beauty and greenery when you go searching for it. 

I even matched my outfit to the surroundings and felt very much a part of nature! I must have had this skirt for about 8 years and even though the hem is a mess and threads are coming out of it, my goodness it is still one of my favourites. 

It was a lovely 'Escape to the country' kinda day and we had a right old giggle and ate way too many sandwiches.

Do you have a secret getaway spot?

Lots of love

Painting The Mountains Red

Dress~ H&M/ Bag~Vintage
Hey there June bugs!

So, I have been to Turkey...again, for the third time this year. It really is starting to feel like a second home. This time I have been up in the mountains in Ovacik, at a beautiful hotel named Sahra Su. I would really recommend it, as you have the best of both worlds. Whether you enjoy being amongst the other Brits, laughing away and sunning yourself by the pool; or if you are more like me and enjoy the quieter side, there are plenty of traditional and cultural Turkish villages and magical paths to walk down.
This bright burnt orange/ red dress from H&M really was a god send in that heat. You can probably see from the pictures what a clammy, pale tourist I was. But, nevertheless I had another wonderful time trapsing through the mountains, spotting lizards and turtles and of course gorging myself on the heavenly food. I came back a few days ago with a cheeky tan and a very full belly!

It has been quite hard to adjust and settle back into the busy, rainy race of everyday London life and I am really looking into saving a bit and just running off to a beautiful country to live my days out at the market and the beach; well, one can dream anyway :)

I hope you have all enjoyed the first few weeks of official summer and have lots to look forward to in the coming season.

Lots of love,

Archive By Alexa

Hat~ Ebay/ Blouse~Marks and Spencers/ Skirt~Vintage/ Shoes~Topshop

Hey my lovelies,

So, I am sure you have all seen the 'Archive by Alexa' collection, a collaboration between Alexa Chung and Marks and Spencer. I'm sure I am not alone in saying that I wasn't too sure what to expect from the highly spoken of ensemble of pieces that came out last month. But, when I saw this Harry Blouse, with its frills and thrills, I couldn't help myself. I chose the blouse in pink, as I find white shirts a lot more difficult to style, which is a bit strange I know. Anyhow, I absolutely love this piece to...well...pieces and I cannot wait to style it with more of my wardrobe. 
In just a few days I will be turning twenty-five, so I thought I would bring all of my pastel pieces out in the humid sun for some snaps.

What do you think of the Archive collection?

Lots of Love,
