Style: Wind, What You Gonna Do?

Wind, What You Gonna Do?

Holy smokes! It’s so windy in Margate in Winter. Note to self, don’t go to the seafront to take outfit pictures EVER again. It’s like going to a wind farm to take photos and my bone structure isn’t good enough to get away with that shiz. In some of these pictures you can literally see me saying the words ‘OMG! How is it so windy!?!’. I’m still asking myself this question, I still don’t know the answer. I’m sure it’s something to do with the sea, wind, GCSE Geography blah blah blah.

Aspinal Of London Hepburn Handbag

I got this Aspinal Of London Hepburn Handbag a month or so ago now, it’s made an appearance on my Instagram a fair few times already, but I think this is the first time I have shared it on my blog. I love it because it’s so ladylike and smart. The perfect mix of a vintage ladies handbag but it also has a really clean, minimalist feel to it as well. It fits everything I need in it and when I walk into a room, I know it means business!

Dower & Hall Pearls

I’m a long time wearer of pearls, I think they are such a chic piece of jewellery, but normally they are just white and occasionally black. I love these Dower & Hall pearls because they are freshwater pearls which have been strung in an ombre effect. Also it’s one of those circle and pole fastenings (I have no idea what the official term is, so just nod as if you know what I mean) so it’s easy to fasten without my boyfriends help. I like to be an independent woman when it comes to fastening my jewellery.
