It's all white




Happy Sunday guys! This Sunday is especially happy for me - as I am jetting off to Morocco tomorrow. There is of course still time to squeeze just one last blog post in before I go! This outfit is making me even more excited to get away from the grey skies I am currently looking at. 

I think this outfit has to be one of the biggest bargains I have ever had. Both the dress AND the shoes were in the Sale - both from Topshop. How cute is the bow detail on the front though?! It is also great because it means you don't have to wear a bra, which the low back really benefits from. I feel like I do struggle sometimes with sale shopping, especially in-store. It's probably my slight OCD but the lack of organisation on a sale rail really stresses me out. I also like to know that if I like something - then they will have my size. Every so often though I really drop on with a sale item, so maybe I just invest some more time in it. 

As you can see I am definitely procrastinating from my holiday packing...but I am seeing this post (especially the bag!) as preparation for my Moroccan posts that are about to follow.

Balcony Brunch


So it's Monday already (how?!) and I am definitely reminiscing about the weekend. I feel like I have been squeezing every last ounce out of Summer that I can lately, ever since we hit the 1st of September. I think I must be in denial! My last post was all about clinging onto my summer wardrobe with my Dancing Leopard 2 piece, but today we were actually able to sit out on the balcony (we didn't even have to wear wooly hats) and enjoyed some brunchy-tapas. Of course this picture looks innocent and orange juice fuelled, but there is absolutely prosecco in those glasses somewhere - obviously.

My weekend has been relatively relaxed really - but whilst still managing to maintain a high food and drink intake for the entirety! I have some exciting things happening at the moment (bloggy things...all will be revealed soon!!!), so I feel ready to hit the week head first with a can-do attitude. I can honestly say that I have never felt so determined and focused. I guess it also helps that in exactly one week today, I will be jetting off on a little holiday with my camera and laptop in tow. Estimated temperature to expect: 34 degrees celsius. That will do nicely.

This was very much a spontaneous bit of food prep - but for those of you foodies like me, this brunch was made up of; olives, manchego cheese, cured meats, stuffed peppers, homemade salsa, potatas bravas, asparagus wrapped in parma ham, seeded bread, and of course - prosecco.

May your Monday be great and productive!

Summer Blues




Okay so my last post was all about me embracing my AW wardrobe - I guess I am just not quite fully ready for that yet! It may have something to do with the fact I have just booked a last minute holiday to Morocco at the end of the month, after that then I definitely will be embracing head to toe knits. Promise.

In more important news, this two piece from Dancing Leopard is now IN THE SALE (linked below). As if you needed any more persuasion. Not only is it the comfiest outfit I own, but it also gives the option to mix and match, should you want to go crazy and separate the co-ord. This is actually the forth set I have from Dancing Leopard - and it most definitely will not be the last. I feel like all I need now is a headscarf with the same bold print for my holiday and I will be a happy bunny.

Hell for Leather








Ok so I have told myself on numerous occasions now that I definitely do not need a new leather jacket as I have approximately 11 already. Do I listen? Absolutely not. This is another Zara beauty and I'm not going to lie - this is the third colour that I have it in. As soon as I saw this online I knew I had to have it. It is such a versatile colour that really will go with so much. Plus as much as we try and fight it - autumn is around the corner (cue the leaves in these shots...) and I CANNOT WAIT to pair this with a bobble hat and a chunky knit scarf. Stepping away from my previous colourful post and back into my classic all black erry thang for this one.

Mellow Yellow | Levi's








This is the most casual I have been in a long time...but hey, the weather has been great this week so I thought I would whip out the old Levi's and buy a jumper to match the sunshine! Unfortunately the heat didn't last as long as i had hoped. This jumper has to be one of the most comfiest jumpers that I own, and it only cost me £5. That's right. a fiver. Not only does it come in yellow, but pink too...both colours which I don't particularly wear on a day to day basis (because, well, they're not black). The little glimpse of sunshine that we have had has given me the urge to book a little trip for the end of September. Its proving a little bit of a struggle to decide on a destination, so any ideas/suggestions of hot climates that are good to visit in September would be greatly appreciated!

Sunshine and Supergas








Happy Bank Holiday everyone! I hope you have all had a lovely extended weekend in the sunshine. Its no surprise that I've spent the majority of my weekend in my favourite pair of shoes. I had originally bought this skirt for Mykonos a couple of months back, but with it being so sunny I thought I would give it another whirl (literally!) - ALSO it is now in the sale so grab it quick (linked below).
