Frills are bigger than ever and here to stay. Its probably my favourite trend at the moment, frills on sleeves, collars, waist lines. My current love is this Zara frills sleeve top, incredibly difficult to actually photography and show how exaggerated these sleeves are. The skirt is an old H&M embroidered number and I wasn’t at first sure if the A-line mini went with the skirt but I quite like the pop of colour that peeps out. My shoes are an old Topshop number, extremely old and battered but I adore them and will wear them until they absolutely tear. I was given a beautiful JORD watch – they’re sustainable wooden watches that are really well made and crafted – absolutely in love with them so expect a post on them this weekend. Its been London Design Festival this week and I’ve been to the V&A twice – the installations are stunning and if you walk around Brompton Road there’s houses which have art work installed, really worth the the visit!

Summer holidays is here, which means no waking up at 6am. I can spend more time blogging/vlogging. For the past week I’ve woken up at 10am and had breakfast at 12pm. So this is how the other half live? Spending most of the time in my pj’s I haven’t really dressed up. But yesterday I decided to make an effort, and I found these two pieces. The crocodile print Topshop box t-shirt. I love that it’s black and the embossed skin print just slightly pops out. These ZARA cow print trousers are incredibly comfortable and light-weight, perfect for the unprepared heat-wave we’re having at the moment. (This picture was taken right after the storm.)
These black Birkenstocks were brought way before they were even popular! They’re a complete marmite thing – you either love them or you hate them. I have and always will love them. I added this gorgeous statement necklace from New-look. I’ve had an on/off affair with statement jewellery, currently its a love mode. A monochrome outfit – with a twist.
Top – Topshop
Statement necklace – New Look
Sandals – Birkenstocks
Just yesterday I came back from a school visit to Ypres and Somme, (I was pronouncing Ypres completely wrong before I got there) I knew we had a (long) whole day packed with lots of moving around and walking. A 5am start and 12am finish to be precise. Comfort was at the top of the list. As well as being prepared for the weather changes. I present the two outfits that I wore *be weary it is jumpsuit galore*.
Never did I think I would wear a leather skirt. My mamma did warn me, never say never.
My second dabble into OOTD – how do you fbloggers do it? I find it hard to pose and only after 100 pictures do I have one picture which is remotely useable…
