Jackets for Springtime

I'm loving the variety of jackets, blazers and kimonos in the shops at the moment. Today I bought myself this little number from New Look. It comes in coral and mint too, but I opted for the navy for a more classic look.

Then check out River Island's massive collection of kimonos. I'm loving this tiger one. A stark contract to the purchase above!

Mad March

March has been a busy month with my birthday, the start of spring and the accompanying end to the season of hibernation. It's also now less than three months until our wedding, and time is starting to go really quickly and I don't really feel like I have time to breathe. Here's some quick photographic highlights from a lovely month.
That's my name, don't wear it out....

It's 106 miles to Chicago, we gotta full tank of gas,half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark...and we're wearing sunglasses

An impressive balancing act

Mind. Blown.

Summer wishlisting

I popped up to York on Monday with my mum to meet up with my little sister. My mum found train tickets for just £5 each way from London (wonder where I get the bargain-hunting from?!) so I took the day off and made it a long weekend, seeing as it was also my birthday this week (last year of my twenties!!). We had a gorgeous lunch in Rustique and then set about finding my sister a bridesmaid dress for the wedding of the year coming up in only just over 3 months now.

There were some fraught moments where we thought we weren't going to find anything and we nearly panic-overspent on a not quite perfect one, but we finally found this one in Warehouse, which we were all happy with. It's a gorgeous dress, the colours are right, and the laidback style fits the day perfectly. And it's essentially a summer maxi dress, which she can wear again, if I don't take it for myself!


Whilst wandering around all the shops of York I found all these other beauties, which are firmly on my California honeymoon shopping list!
