I feel like I have been wearing this jacket a lot recently, I hope no one is getting bored of seeing me in it. I’m not sure if I keep wearing it because it is light-weight and easy to wear during the Summer months, or if it’s because I customised it myself and I am filled with pride when I wear it. If you are bored of seeing this jacket, feel free to comment below and tell me. Or if you are interested in reading about how I patched it up, check this post for a tutorial.
I saw this Playing Card Bag on ASOS a few weeks ago and I had to have it, annoyingly it has already sold out. Speaking of which, the shoes I wanted have also sold out. The moral of the story, if you see something you like on ASOS, buy it fast!!
My phone case is by Moschino, I’m a bit worried it looks a little too much like a can of beer in this photo. Obvs I’m not drinking in the street!

This weekend it was my birthday! It was filled with lots of gifts, cakes, burgers, shopping and fun. I got lots of beautiful gifts, but the main attraction has to be this stunning Moschino bucket bag which my boyfriend gave me! He knows I love Moschino as I own enough of it (both modern and vintage) and I always drag him into the boutique to droll over, well, everything! For the last few months he been pretending he didn’t like the current collection, and it turns out, it was a bluff as was planning on buying me something for my birthday!
I couldn’t be more excited to add this little gem into my Moschino collection, I love the bright yellow with the multi-coloured charm letters and the long shoulder strap. I’m really into bucket bags at the moment and this is one is so good it kills me! I’m so happy with it!!
I always wear my favourite things on my birthday, it just is more fun! So despite the morning rain, I wore my new bag along with my current favourite Lazy Oaf dress with some of my favourite jewels. We headed out for milkshake and burgers and practically rolled down the street back to our flat as we were so stuffed! I might be another year older, but this new handbag helps soften the blow!
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend!

When I want to be warm and comfortable, I always reach for this Wildfox Couture Swan jumper! I love the bell sleeves, the oversized shape and the soft, warm wool. Even though it feels like the cosiest jumper in the world, I think it looks pretty good! It’s possible I have worn this jumper, many, many, many times for this reason!
My handbag is by Radley London and I love the pretty shade of yellow, it matches the beak of the swan perfectly! It has beautiful yellow striped lining and it is made of great quality, soft leather. I love Radley London this season, they have made some really slick and simple bags which feel really modern and practical.
My boyfriend kindly bought me this scarf for my last birthday. I didn’t even hint that I wanted it, he walked in the Bond Street Boutique and chose it himself. He knows I love Chanel, silk squares and pearl necklaces. I already have the Chanel Pearl Necklace, which I adore, so he thought it would be fun to have a silk square which has pearls printed all over. Clever right?!
I have always had a pretty hefty collection of rings, but since I got engaged, my other rings have been hidden away and barely seen the light of day. I got this Cartier Love ring about a year ago and I wear it every single day and now I am engaged, I always wear my engagement ring too. I really need to dust off my other rings and figure out which ones I can wear without it looking like a female version of Mr. T.

Chanel Pearl Print Silk Scarf
I’m a self-confessed Instagram addict and I post pictures on there every single day (actually I post a few pictures every single day!). I thought it might be fun to pull together some of my recent instagram favourites to share with you all!
Over the last few seasons Next have made some amazing novelty clutch bags and I have loved every single one of them. From the Perfume bottle to the Drumstick lolly, to this new Airmail Letter, it seems I’m starting to form a little collection! I’m really impressed they have made such cute novelty handbags which are such an amazing price, I think this one was £25!
Blue and Yellow
I love creating flatlay photos themed around colour! Not only are blue and yellow such cheery colours, but I love these Summery Blue and Yellow New Balance trainers with the Cath Kidston Cloud Print tote bag. I hadn’t considered wearing these two items together until I took this photo, but actually, it’s a cute little weekend look!
Marni have had a huge resurgence in the last few years and it’s been really exciting watching their collections get better and better each season. I love the way they play with prints, colours and materials, to give a classic and chic look with a pop twist. This new Marni perfume fits in perfectly with the feel of the brand. It smells like spice, wood and rose. It’s modern, beautiful and with just a hint of femininity. Perfection! Oh and the bracelets are by Monica Vinader.
Twinning is the thing to do right now, but normally it’s twinning with your BFF; matching pink hair, handbags or just coordinating colours… you know how it works! I like to think of myself as a lone wolf which is why I decided to give twinning a go, but with sculptures at Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir! My jumper is by Wildfox, it’s likely you may have seen me wearing it once or twice before!
Repaired and Restored
I recently blogged about my vintage Louis Vuitton Noe bag, it was so old and badly worn it was ready for the bin (sad times, right?!) Luckily for me The Handbag Clinic worked their magic on my bag and I have been loving using my newly restored bag. I’m still shocked at how different it looks and what an incredible job they did on it! I’m tempted to send an old Chanel bag to them for a dye job!
I recently went to Krispy Kremes Doughnut Bloggers event and it was pretty much the most fun thing ever! We were treated to four courses of doughnuts from the new Chocomania range, which were served with accompnying cocktails. It felt a little bit like *fine dining with doughnuts* and it was hosted by the recipe creator himself. I left feeling a little full and on a major sugar high, but it was a lot of fun! I am a long time fan of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and this was a really fun experience! If you haven’t tried the new Chocomania range yet, it is time you do! Yum Yum!
I’m obsessed with the current Anya Hindmarch collection! It’s the perfect mix between stickers and emoji’s, it’s fabulous and fun and I’m obsessed with it! I dream of owning this handbag!
Age of Reason
I recently got this stunning Age of Reason scarf and I can’t stop looking at the print. I kept looking at it and trying to figure out what it reminded me of, it finally dawned on me, the composition reminds me of a mirror image style instagram photo. Know what I mean? The candle is by Shay & Blue, it was my boyfriends choice, it smells like a masculine members club, rich woods and leathers!
I have owned many pairs of ballet flats in my time, but never have I found the perfect pair. Until now, these French Sole pumps are everything I have been looking for; the shape, quality and fit of them is spot on. They are simple yet stunning!
I love, love, love my new jewellery by Hiho Silver! I couldn’t decide which one of these two bracelets I liked best, so I opted for both! The Snaffle bracelet is so classic and ladylike, yet I liked the belt design as it *fastens* around my wrist like a miniature belt! I wear them together and alone and they are a great fit, they sit close to your wrist, so they don’t bash around like bangles, nor are they tight and restrictive.
I recently did an Instagram takeover for beauty Jurlique, I may have mentioned once or twice before, but I adore their natural skin care! One of my all time favourite products is Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist. I spritz it after I have cleansed to soften, hydrate and tone my skin, it smells like a dream and it feels fantastic!
I recently treated my boyfriend to coffee and ice cream at The Parlour at Fortnum & Mason! The ice cream sundae was incredible, the service was lovely and my coffee came with an extra miniature ice cream, in a little cone holder! Isn’t that the cutest thing ever?
What are your current Instagram favourites?
It’s cold and windy today, so please do excuse my scarf blowing around in the breeze! Although, I have to say, if you have to have a scarf blowing around in the breeze, it may as well be a Hermès scarf! I love this scarf, I wear it all the time. Not only does it add a splash of colour and detail print to my outfit, but it also keep my neck warm.
Can we talk about how dreamy this handbag is? I got it from Boden and I instantly fell in love with the beautiful colour. It’s the perfect shade of blue and really makes every outfit pop. Some blues can be hard to match with other colours, but somehow this handbag works with every outfit. It’s really great quality and made of beautiful thick leather. It also has a detachable shoulder strap, so you can wear it as a handbag, or over your shoulder.
I have been wearing a lot of Wildfox Couture recently, during LFW (twice), in Bali and just generally around town. I find their jumpers so easy to wear and comfortable. If I could, I would fill my wardrobe with their knitwear!
Vow London Sunglasses
When I saw these sunglasses, I knew I had to have them! They are pink, glittery and they have a cat-eye frame… perfect! I got them from the Vow London website and as soon as I posted them to my instagram everyone went nuts and I knew I had made the right choice. Vow London have some other amazing frames and colours, I may need to start a little collection!
