Autumn in London: Plaid Outfit

Hello My Lovelies

Today was a gorgeous bright Autumn day, the sun was shining and there was a crisp cold bite in the air. We headed into Central London and had a wonderful day looking around the shops on the Kings Road, Chelsea. I decided to wear this gorgeous plaid dress which being quite lightweight was perfect for walking around in. When it got a little chilly I added this cosy scarf from Primark! I really love this outfit, what do you think?

Please let me know your thoughts on this outfit in the comments below. I would also love to hear about your favourite Autumn outfits! Please feel free to leave your blog links in the comments below.

Autumn Fashion trend - The statement clutch bag

Hello Lovelies

Today I wanted to share with you this bright autumn outfit, featuring a bang on trend novelty clutch. Fun wacky novelty clutch bags can be found almost everywhere at the moment, Anya Hindmarch has had a huge impact on me, especially with her range of cereal clutch bags which have had every fashionista lemming over. I on the other hand do not have over £1000 to spend on my novelty bag boohoo so here is my budget version!

H&M Studio AW14: Autumn outfit khaki and cream

Hello my lovelies

Today I wanted to show you all my new favourite trousers. I picked up these silky khaki pants from Oxford St, during London Fashion Week, they are part of the draw dropping H&M Studio AW14 collection. I literally took the last pair in the shop and even though they were a tad loose I snapped them up (chanting to myself nothing a safety pin can't fix). Fear not my friends they are still available on line, so grab them while you can!

This is not another Jumpsuit...

Hi Everyone!!!

Today I would like to share with you my latest outfit, it may at first glance look like a jumpsuit but I am in fact wear matching floral trousers and top! (Co-ords). For me this outfit ticks all the boxes, I get to look like I am wearing a jumpsuit, but without the baggy bum look jumpsuits tend to give me. Then I am left with a pair of trousers and I top I can create endless outfits with!

I am in love with the dark green in this print. It is a beautiful contrast to my new purple highlights so I have a feeling I will be wearing green a lot next season!

A quirky little weekend in a lighthouse!

Happy August Bank Weekend All

Hubby and I are just back from one of the most amazing weekends ever. We stayed in a lighthouse, yes an actual lighthouse! How incredible is that?

The West USK Lighthouse Visit here is situated approx 20 Min's drive from Cardiff, Wales. The lighthouse now decommissioned, has been tastefully renovated and turned into a B&B by Frank and his wife. We loved listening to Frank's interesting stories, his knowledge of the lighthouse and all things nautical really enriched our stay.

A memorable highlight was walking a mile along the deserted coastline where we reached the local pub, we were entertained by the locals, we loved listening to their charming welsh accents and were taken back by their hospitality. It is not often you can walk into a rural local pub and feel so welcome. The food and drink was a pleasure too and the price about a third of London's prices also a lovely surprise.

We truly felt like we had stayed in a lighthouse not just a Disney replica. The scenery is quite magical, on one side you see lush green and the other the beautiful blue sea, the contrast is breath taking. Inside the lighthouse we loved discovering all the interesting little hidden treasures, not all things nautical though you will find a Dalek under the stairs and a Tardis next to the hot tub! We loved every quirky minute and were sad to leave.

It was a bit chilly so I couldn't really wear my favourite striped dress. However I did try to keep the nautical theme going with my striped bag and striped vest (sorry not easy to see in the pics!)

I Really, Really Lilac Pastels

After a week in Barcelona we traveled to the beautiful seaside town 'Sitges', which is about 40 minutes from Barcelona. Sitges did not disappoint, with it's beautiful golden coastline, stylish bars, restaurants and trendy boutiques, we had an absolute ball... lots of Sangria, Tapas and sunshine, happy days!

As the sun was shining I decided to unpack the pastels, I have to be careful with pastels as although I adore them they often make me look washed out. Lilac is my forever friend so I when I saw this top and skirt in Primark I knew I just had to have them!
