SPRING WISHIN'


12 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

With spring pretty much here, I can't help but fall for all the pretty pastels I'm seeing everywhere! There are some really beautiful pieces out there, especially the gorgeous playsuit and kimono from LOVE. Missguided have some pretty pastel pieces too and right now I'm loving co-ord sets. I want a pair of 'mom jeans' in my life and Missguided have a good dupe of the Topshop ones - I think they'd look awesome with crop tops. I've also fallen for the mini Cambridge Satchels and the pastel pink one is perfect for spring and summer. 

Are pastels on your hit list right now?

OUTFIT | HOW CAN YOU SWALLOW SO MUCH SLEEP?


Hat - Topshop

I feel wonderfully festival-chic in the outfit! This dress is something I wouldn't usually pick up in shops but I got it in the UO goodie bag that I won at the Fashion Targets Breast Cancer launch party! It's a lovely relaxed fit with a gorgeous print and cinched in waist - perfect for days when you just want to pull something on and go. It's got a very seventies-boho vibe to it, with the orange floral print and flared sleeves. I can't wait to wear this in the summer with strappy sandals, but as it's cooler at the moment I'll probably pair it with ankle boots.

LOVE EVENT 05/04/14

Last Saturday I went down to London for an event run by the girls at In Love With Fashion. They're started doing blogger meets every few months at their HQ to give tips on making the most of your blog - ideal for newer fashion bloggers! It was a nice informal event with nibbles and drinks. They had a sample sale of pieces that had been produced but weren't on sale until the AW season started as well as a few rails of things they sell right now. I fell head over heels with the pastel shades and floral prints. I'm particularly in love with the blue floral print kimono pictured above!!

There was a talk with Sophie Johnson, who runs Mad PR; Sheila who works with affiliate schemes at etail-PR and Sarah who has a fashion blog called That Pommie Girl. Sophie gave a lot of useful tips in getting into working in the fashion industry, particularly in PR. Sarah has been running her blog for six months and gave some tips on blogging. Sheila spoke to us about making the most out of blogging using affiliate links for brands you've worked with. Although I've been blogging for a while, I found some of the tips really useful and will definitely take them on board! If you get a chance to go to one of these events, I'd definitely say go as it's a nice chance to meet and chat to other bloggers and pick up a few new tips.

OUTFIT | THERE ARE NINE MILLION BICYCLES IN BEIJING


Biker Jacket - Topshop
Blouse and Boots c/o Glamorous
Jeans - Primark
Bag - Zara
Necklace c/o The Bohemian Collective
Nails - Rimmel Sun Downer

I know I'm not in Beijing, but the bicycles remind of the song okay! I wore this outfit to London on Saturday when I went with Ellie. We thought this was a pretty cool place to take outfit photos so stood in the street whilst people watched us be modelz. Loving shirts again, especially baggy ones with an awesome print like this one. (um this is a dress, again aha!) Still enjoying my cut out boots too and they withstood the stomping around London all day. I've decided I'd love a pink bike with the basket on the front now. Not that I have any where to go on it.

TWO DAYS IN LONDON: PANCAKES & BEING A TOURIST




This weekend I spent both Saturday and Sunday in London, so I decided to collate all the photos into one post, so apologies if I've over loaded your eyes! On Saturday I met up with my best blogging bud, Ellie, to go to the LOVE event in Great Portland St. but an early train meant that we obviously had to head to The Breakfast Club in Soho. I've never been before and thank you Ellie, for making me get the pancakes. Uh. May. Zing. Full up on pancakes and freshly squeezed orange juice, we headed to Carnaby Street and mooched around a bit before going to the LOVE event (blog post to come on that soon!) We also found a Banksy which was quite exciting!

On Sunday, I got the train back down to London with my Mum and brother to see our friends on their yacht in St. Katharine's docks near Tower Bridge. Dad had sailed it with his friend up the Thames from Suffolk and met us all there. We walked along the Thames up to London Bridge and then back up the other side to walk across Tower Bridge, so I managed to take some proper tourist-y photos. We had a meal together and headed off home, so I was able to take some pretty night time photos too. It was a shame the weather wasn't as great as it had been on the Saturday!

Hope you all had lovely weekends xoxo
