Floral stripes.



I am incredibly lucky to live in this beautiful place but I will sadly be leaving it soon. Any time the weather is like this I am making sure I get out the house to experience it. London, however wonderful in other ways, does not look like this! 

These trousers make me feel like a 40s lady and I love that! Australian brand Seed is not a shop that I had ever been in before, and the reason for me ending up in there was actually with a friend who shops there. I was surprised by there really simple, elegant shapes and had to pick this pair of trousers up. I do love wearing trousers but I am so ridiculously picky about them that I find it hard to find ones I do love! My main problem is I only really wear high waisted ones, I find most of the trousers I fall for end up being vintage.

Concrete Playground.



I am not sure my love affair with lace will ever end, and I am okay with that. For those days when I want to embrace my femininity there is really nothing better. Here, I love the combination of the delicate fabric with the concrete and stone. We can't cut back this vine quick enough for the amount it grows, especially in the rain we have had here this summer, but there is something so beautiful about it I don't mind. The green is so striking against the grey and the white of my dress that it felt like a good day to shoot here.

Uniform.



In my opinion you cannot beat the classic co-ord for a look that is effortless but 'put together'. This set from dahlia is one of my favourites although this one from them is pretty close to reaching my shopping basket. All it needs is a fruit handbag and you are ready for some fun!

A hint of lace.



Something I love collecting is vintage lingerie and nightwear however it can be a little tricky to venture with it outdoors. This dress I found last year from urban outfitters is perfect for that problem. It has the softness, delicacy and hint of lace one might expect but the blue polkadot print means it is not likely that you will be mistaken for having just rolled out of bed. For now my night gowns and robes are for me to enjoy lounging around the house in! 

This day was an adventure to a wholefood canteen in Alexandria called Bread and Circus. I am definitely planning a trip back soon. The food was delicious and anywhere with pink tiles and gourds everywhere is fine by me! I picked up the beautiful flowers as a welcome to my mum who was landing that day from London. They are nothing like the flowers you get in England so I was sure she would appreciate them!

Cat Lady.



The irony is that I am actually much more of a dog lady than a cat one. I just love things with cats on! They are pretty funny. This top has lead to many conversations with strangers, in fact on this day I was stopped by a woman who thought her 8-year old niece would love it. Not sure what that says about my choice in clothes but I am sure my 8-year old goddaughter would love it too! Probably the jelly sandals too..

Things had dwindeld over in this corner of the internet, but I am back ready to make a good go of it. I have just returned from London and I must confess that I am struggling to switch from winter to summer dressing. I keep wanting to add tights and jackets and have to remind myself that is not appropriate in 30 degrees!











Skirt & T-shirt: Topshop

A little blurry of me that last one, but gives you a glimpse of the view I have to live with. Just terrible.

Happy weekend all!
