My Style: Winter Wedding Florals

My style winter florals 1 My Style: Winter Wedding Florals %tagThis weekend I went to the wedding of our good friends Tim and Katie in Bristol, not only was it so much fun catching up with friends who looked so much in love, it got me even more excited about my big day coming up in November.

As we were staying at the venue, the stunning Berwick Lodge, I could wear something that didn’t need a coat and that wasn’t too warm as I didn’t need to go far in the awful stormy weather. I always find weddings in general hard to buy for, as you want to be comfortable, smart, but your outfit can’t really be too over powering, which is why this gorgeous floral fit-and-flare dress from Karen Millen is perfect. I love the intricate detail around the neckline, as well as the sheer cap sleeves and the pleated skirt is so flattering.

I was torn between this and another dress, but after seeing Diane Kruger rocking Erdem winter florals I just had to give the look a go, OK granted it isn’t the same print, or even the same colour, but the trend is still the same and I love how the yellows and pinks really stand out on this dress.

With an all-over print I played down my accessories opting for a black clutch and my black Asos shoes, which I call my disco shoes as not only can I dance in them all night long but the heel sparkles like a disco ball. I just added a touch of colour to my bracelets and my nails to complement my dress.

Have you tried the winter floral look?

My Style: Summer Walk By The River


my style deck chair  My Style: Summer Walk By The River %tag
This weekend I embraced the sunny weather, because let’s be honest we don’t know how long it is going to last for. On Saturday, I generally sat around the garden, lounged around reading magazines, occasionally helped with the gardening, and munched on BBQ food, which kind of spur me to get up early on Sunday for a walk down the River Cam.

Living in South Cambridgeshire I get the best of both world’s I am not too far from London, no matter what some people think, and I get to explore the gorgeous countryside, quaint towns and adorable villages. One of my favourite villages, and on my wishlist of dream locations to live has to be Grantchester, which is just outside Cambridge.

This is a village that isn’t that big but has three great pubs and an amazing outdoor tea room, which is where we started our Sunday stroll, well I needed to fill up before the walk and I do love lounging about in a deck chair!!!

From there we headed down the river until we came to the edge of Cambridge and headed into town, it took about an hour, we weren’t rushing and it was hot, but it was such a lovely walk. It was fun watching the tourists try their hand at punting, the new canoeists going round in circles, the cute dogs swimming in the river, and the adorable swans.

I always find it hard to decide what to wear on hot days, it is that worry of getting my legs out, wearing something that will reveal my less than stellar body, so I decided to go for a fun floral skirt, tee and bright trainers – easy, casual and comfortable. Although, as it was so hot I am not sure why I opted to wear a black top, such a mistake, I love the loose fit of my boyfriend tee from Primark I just wish I had worn my white one instead.

I also wore my Lulu Guinness watch, which I am obsessed with, and as it has a larger face that my other watches I now have a large tan mark on my left arm!!!

What did you do this weekend to enjoy the sun?

My Style: Denim Skirt, Sunshine, and Fountains

my style denim skirt 12 My Style: Denim Skirt, Sunshine, and Fountains %tag

Last week when I was in London having a spot of afternoon tea, I stopped by Somerset House, because why the hell not really, but I realised while walking around and of course getting snapped by Sherin that I rarely see the fountains as the square is normally taken over by the London Fashion Week tent.

It was weird just admiring the gorgeous architecture, dancing in-between the fountain jets, and generally seeing the square without the hoards of fashionistas, and best of all not cursing the cobbles when rushing off to a show. To show how pretty Somerset House is in the sun I did a 360 Instagram video, if you want to check it out head on over to my Instagram feed.

As we seem to be seeing a little sun lately I have been trying to embrace my summer wardrobe, I know that my last style post was also a denim skirt, but that one was a pencil skirt and this cutie is a flared one from Topshop’s tall collection.

Granted only subtle differences but I love that this flared skirt can literally just be thrown on with nearly anything. I paired mine with a lace detailing black top from H&M, tribal StylistPick flats that I picked up in their sale last summer, and added a pop of colour with one of my favourite bags by Rebecca Minkoff.
