I absolutely loved this bank holiday weekend!!!
Hubby and I both had quite a bit of time off and on Saturday night we had dinner with some friends with a few Porn Star Martinis (did you know there’s no Martini in those?!?! :)), on Sunday we had an Italian lunch date at Bella Italia in York, where amazingly enough they started to play our wedding song as soon as we walked through the door (That’s Amore), then watched Beauty and the Beast at The View while eating, and I kid you not, a bucket of sweet popcorn, and on Monday we went for a walk in York and lunch at the Starr in The City.
Sounds like a holiday in two days for us! haha
Anyway, today’s outfit is a mixture of all sorts of textures I love to no end, the gorgeous lacy back of this white jumper from Molly Browns, a shop I only discovered because I dared to tap this gorgeous girl on the shoulder while waiting to return something in Next, just cause I had to find that where that top was from! 🙂 Do you do that? 🙂
The mom embroidered jeans are from Topshop they are so comfy and chic, I would wear them all the time if I could wear casual outfits at work, where I am most of the time! 🙂 I saw them in a version with yellow flowers on a blogger and fell in love but just could not find those colours anywhere! These are no second best though, they are perfect and go with everything!
The outfit would have been incomplete without a variety of pink accessories, like the cutest chuck taylor all star Converse, my beautiful SS17 shopper bag from Accessorize and the softest, sadly now out of stock scarf from Mint Velvet. And let’s not forget the vintage looking pink framed sunglasses from Topshop! 🙂
Hope you’ve had a lovely long weekend and a Happy Easter, next bank holiday is right around the corner so hang in there! 🙂
Already miss those gorgeous daffodils and the happy vibes they brought with them!
Until we meet again,
Spring always makes me want to start fresh with all sorts, the sunshine, the daffodils, the emerging green and blossom everywhere! 🙂
So here I am, brining life back into this little corner of the world, with loads of new plans but same busy (if not busier) schedule so will try and take it one step at the time and improve this area as I go!
Spring and pastels always go hand in hand for me, so have based this outfit around a cute embroidered striped shirt from Miss Selfridge at Asos which has an open back and is made out of a very light fabric which would make it perfect for a beach coverup as well!
These Asos high waisted jeans are my favourite pair ever for the cutest bow and frill detail and have found my staple shopping/work bag for the SS17 with loads of room and stunning embroidered details at Accessorize.
Have a feeling will be living in Converse this year but I don’t plan to fight it! I mean when you found comfort and chicness, why mess with it, right? 🙂
Photo were take at The Wall in York, stunning area if you fancy a trip to North Yorkshire!
Hope you’re all enjoying the long weekend and have Happy Easter!
Until we meet again,
I decided to order this dress to try it on but had no big expectations, in fact I was pretty sure it’ll go back as soon as it arrived.
My first thought when I opened the parcel was that the colours were a bit too bright, but given that they were supposed to look tropical, I decided to try it on and fell in love with it for its fab fit and girly design and print!
The dress is still available at Asos for only £28.00, and you can find it by following the link here.
The bag is an old favourite from Accessorize, the Apple Juice Carton :), and the Charlotte Olympia sunglasses kitty flats were an amazing find on Ebay!!! Love them to bits, nothing says summer, girly and happiness more than this pair of shoes! 🙂
Hope you’re all enjoying these amazing summer days and the week ahead will be one filled with even more sunshine! 🙂
Until we meet again,
This year, the most amazing women from Olivia Palermo to Liv from What Olivia Did and Janina from Love and Urban and my fav fellow blogger Andini from Adventures of an Anglophile have been showing of their amazing Self Portrait dresses!
These dresses are showstoppers, and except maybe all Erdem collections 🙂 and a few Zimmerman dresses, they are my absolute favourite designs!
However, they do come with a hefty price tag attached, price that most of us will not pay for one dress when we can have a wardrobe full of more wearable dresses from our High Street retailers.
But through a little miracle, maybe not so great for the designers at Self Portrait, but definitely for us fashion lovers who need to have these dresses in our wardrobe, I have found SHEIN.COM and their amazing Hallow Out Fit Flare Lace Cami Dress!
Like most of you, I’ve been drawn towards white lace dresses for quite some time now and this beauty from Asos perfectly combines the off the shoulder trend with my love for white, embroidered dresses.
Found this dress by mistake just before it sold out and I cannot stop wearing it! 🙂
For this dusty pink, loose fit cardigan now on sale at Warehouse, follow the link here. Love the colour, very girly and in trend and goes with quite a big part of my summer wardrobe.
These amazing shoes (as close to Valentino as you can get without going bankrupt) came from Nordstorm, after Tyler from Girl Meets Gold has turned them into her staple summer shoes! Tyler’s one of my favourite bloggers, she’s brill, love every outfit she puts together! 🙂 The shoes have sadly sold out but Heti from Dune are similar with slight colour variations, link here.
The nude, scalloped bag is from Asos, link here, and the rode gold tassels are from HM. I could totally wear nude all through summer and not just out and about in Scarborough! 🙂
Hope you’re all enjoying the weekend and have a great week!
Until we meet again
After a whole month off, I’m back with loads to share! 🙂
June is always a busy month for me, my birthday, handover before my 2 weeks holiday and time to reflect on the year passed and the year to come…
I’ll start off July with this outfit that is all about these amazing frilled, flared jeans that have just been restocked at Asos, link here.
The vest is from New Look last season, the dream catcher necklace from Miss Selfridge and the round sunglasses from Topshop.
The pompom, lace up shoes are from Asos, now sold out but if you want to try your luck at restocking :), follow the link here.
Not much to say in this post as this outfit pretty much does all the talking :), but will be back soon with some more insightful and meaningful content! 🙂
Hope you’re all enjoying the weekend and for all our American friends, Happy 4th July on Monday! 🙂
Until we meet again,
