My Style: When Hudson Met Lulu

st albans my style 1 My Style: When Hudson Met Lulu %tag

This weekend actually felt like spring, it was sunny, it was warm, and it meant that I could finally wear something that wasn’t layered up – cue the crop jeans, the statement tee and a colourful pair of trainers!!!

A couple of years ago I am not so sure I would have got my ankles out for a pair of jeans, that was because I hadn’t been introduced to the boyfriend style of denim, since I got my Gap pair I have been a little obsessed in finding a pair that was a little longer in length that would be perfect with trainers, and then Jeanography came along and recommend these Hudson Jeans and I think I can safely say they are going to be my spring/summer staple.

As we had friends over this weekend we took full advantage of the sunny weather and took in the sights, shops, and gorgeous parks of St Albans, a market town that I haven’t been to in a while and it is so pretty. As we were doing a bit of walking around I decided to wear my new Onitsuka Tiger trainers, so, so comfortable and I am in love with the gorgeous pink colour, which works so well with blue denim.

To complete my look of first time wears, which wasn’t intentional I just realised while writing this post, was my Lulu Guinness for Uniqlo doll face tee. You may remember I was a big fan of Lulu’s first collaboration with the Japanese fashion brand, I have the Kooky Cat and the original doll face, so when the collection came out earlier this month I couldn’t resist updating my wardrobe with the new style and at under £15 this tee is a bargain.

If the sunny weather keeps up like this I think you will be seeing a lot more of these jeans, these shoes and an array of statement tees!!!

Do you have a go-to sunny Sunday afternoon attire?

Revisited: Osprey Home In St Albans

Osprey Home 7 Revisited: Osprey Home In St Albans %tagI do love revisiting places, especially when they are as adorable as Osprey Home in St Albans, and last week I was invited by the brand’s founder and designer Graeme Ellisdon to take a tour around the treasure trove and a spot of lunch after its refurbishment.

What I love about Osprey Home, other than the obviously that it is full of pretty things that I want to fill my house with, has to be the charming feeling you get when wandering around the stable blocks, you basically never know what you are going to find. Plus as well as offering a gorgeous shopping experience this place has the most amazing cafe, seriously the cakes are to-die-for, and they have a collection of tea cups that I wish I had.

Since my last visit the main changes has to be that the place is bigger, they have extended the Saddlery Cafe, which was wise as it is very popular, they’ve repositioned the Home store slightly and have introduced new lines such as jewellery, which is curated by Graeme’s wife, Osprey London candles and fragrances, which smell divine, and generally they’ve allowed more room for the hand-selected vintage-inspired finds that I loved from my first visit.

As well as cute interior pieces, gorgeous food in the cafe, Osprey Home also has an outlet store for the Osprey London handbags and leather accessories at bargain prices. I have to be honest I haven’t spent a more relaxed afternoon in a while, I have added a lot of things to my wish-list, and I came away with some amazing interior inspiration as well. I wish all shopping trips were such a pleasure!!!

Here are a few of the pictures I took, but for more head on over to my Facebook page.Osprey Home 5 Revisited: Osprey Home In St Albans %tag Osprey Home 11 Revisited: Osprey Home In St Albans %tag Osprey Home 12 Revisited: Osprey Home In St Albans %tag Osprey Home 14 Revisited: Osprey Home In St Albans %tag Osprey Home 15 Revisited: Osprey Home In St Albans %tag Osprey Home 17 Revisited: Osprey Home In St Albans %tag Osprey Home 19 Revisited: Osprey Home In St Albans %tag Osprey Home 20 Revisited: Osprey Home In St Albans %tag Osprey Home 25 Revisited: Osprey Home In St Albans %tag Osprey Home 28 Revisited: Osprey Home In St Albans %tag Osprey Home 27 Revisited: Osprey Home In St Albans %tagOsprey Home 21 Revisited: Osprey Home In St Albans %tag
