Around Kensington Gardens in Pictures

Kensington Gardens cover

Sunset in Kensington Gardens is quite beautiful. I was lucky enough to swing by after work a few weeks ago for this little photo shoot. A friend of mine mentioned that a photographer friend of theirs was looking to expand his portfolio, and asked if anyone fancied testing some portrait shots. Naturally, I jumped at the chance. What a treat to grab some pictures without having to find a flat surface on which to balance my phone!

Friday Faves – Sales, Home Cooking, Corsets and Shoes

 
Sales

I love the sales. I’ve noticed that I tend to re-stock my wardrobe twice a year, in the end of summer and the post-Christmas sale periods. Since the fashion world is always one step in the future, this means that often the “end of summer” sales are at the beginning of summer. Likewise, the January sales of winter stock occur when there’s still a fair amount of winter left. So I’m currently stocking up on winter collection pieces that will see me through many winters to come. Continue reading “Friday Faves – Sales, Home Cooking, Corsets and Shoes”

Velvet and Suede and a Fancy Necklace

Oh my gosh, I can’t believe it’s been over 4 months since I posted a proper outfit post! I started this incarnation of my blog in January 2017 and it feels like a nice kind of symmetry to begin 2018 with a similar style of post. I’ve been having a big think about my blog recently, and some changes I’m going to make for this year, but that’s for another post. For now, let’s talk about velvet and layering, two of my favourite things. Continue reading “Velvet and Suede and a Fancy Necklace”

Things from the week – 20.08.17

Things from the week 20.08.2018 cover

Hi again! Did you read my first “things from the week” post last week? What did you think? From a selfish perspective, I really enjoyed writing it. Since starting this feature, I’ve been writing down everything I do on an average week and it’s really made me realise how much I get up to. I’m feeling thankful for the little things like seeing my family, getting outdoors and treating myself for my birthday! This week was a pretty busy one, so let’s begin.

60’s Florals and Suede Boots

60's cover

My wardrobe is a total mishmash of styles and influences. I’ve got a fair amount of mid-century style; the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s are my favourite decades for sartorial inspiration. This look is much more 60’s themed though, and a perfect summer combo to cheer up London streets. This floral dress first featured on my Insta all the way back in April when I was still wearing tights! The weather finally picked up enough this August to be able to wear it with bare legs and ankle boots. I think dresses / skirts and ankle boots are basically acceptable attire from spring right through to autumn, no?

Friday Faves – Checks, Fizz, Bags and Skincare

 

Welcome to the first of my new themed Friday posts. Each week, I’ll share a few of the things I’ve been thinking about, lusting after and generally enjoying each week. Sometimes I’m inspired by bloggers, sometimes my friends. Sometimes I see something whilst I’m out and about, and sometimes something pops into my head for no apparent reason! Anyway, I thought it would be nice to share some nice things to finish off the week. Without further ado, let’s begin!

New things on my blog & the blogs that inspired the change

New things cover

I had all these big plans to get my blog up to date by the end of July and write up a big announcement about some changes I was going to make. What actually happened, was that I planned all these exciting changes and never got round to publishing them. So I’m writing this retrospectively, which doesn’t make a lot of sense. However, I’m a stickler for a plan and too stubborn to give up on one, so here goes. It’s a bit of a wordy one, so please bear with me!
