Sweater Weather

Khaki roll neck jumper: MISSGUIDED
Patent boots: PUBLIC DESIRE
Leather look shorts: ASOS
Grid back pack: NEW LOOK

Ah thick, cosy jumpers how I have missed you! Everyone knows a change of season is the perfect excuse to get shopping and to fill our wardrobe with clothes that we absolutely need (read: probably could do without) for the coming cold nights and I for one jumped straight in and ordered this absolutely perfect jumper from Missguided. I love the grungy feel teamed with the super chic boots from Public Desire, which I am absolutely in love with. I opted for the dark red colour which is an A/W classic rather than black - I think it's time I started to curb my black ankle boot addiction!

The Sunday Post: Date Night

As much as I love curling up on the sofa watchng a movie with a pizza, going out on a date night with Karl is probably my favourite way to spend my nights off from work - what is a better combination than cinema, food and shopping? We headed to good ol' Wagamama for food before having a wander around the shops (read: me wandering around the shop whilst Karl trails around behind me) and going to the cinema to see Scarlett Johanson's new movie Lucy. We booked "Gallery Seats" which is something we've been meaning to do for a while and although they do cost a quite pricey £18 each, my god is it worth it. Unlimited popcorn, drinks and nachos with a super cute bowl of Quality Street chocolates combined with what can only be described as a two seat couch as our seat made for a great cinema trip!

Where are your favourite places to go on a date night?

Colbat Bloom


*Colbat floral shift dress: c/o GLAMOROUS // Cut out boots: PUBLIC DESIRE // Bag: ALDO // Chain: URBAN OUTFITTERS

I'm a huge fan of oversized dresses, especially when they're as pretty as this floral one from Glamorous. However thanks to my small frame I do find that they can sometimes make me look swamped so I just added the chunky belt to give it a little bit of structure and to dress it down for a cinema date night. It would look gorgeous for a night out with a pair of strappy heels minus the belt! This week has been my first week back at work since getting back from my holiday and everyone knows just how dismal that week is - only wearing pretty dresses and outfits could possibly make it better!

Blanket Days

Check blanket cape, Knitted head band: ASOS // Skinny ripped jeans, High necked top: TOPSHOP //  Cut out boots: PUBLIC DESIRE

When my mum and sister saw me wearing this absolutely delightful cape this week they laughed at me and said I was dressed for winter - they weren't laughing an hour later when it was 10 degrees and pouring down with them wearing shorts and sandals! I ordered this beauty from ASOS and just couldn't wait any longer to wear it (not that I needed to wait given the wintery weather we've all been having this week!) and it's so warm I could literally curl up in a ball and live in it. For me the blanket cape is a wardrobe staple this A/W and I can see this taking me right through Autumn and Winter no problems.

Autumnal August

*Orange swirl trousers: c/o GLAMOROUS // White scallop tee, Flatform sandals, Cross chain: TOPSHOP // Black floppy hat: PRIMARK

As sad as I am to see the sun leave us I will admit I am looking forward to Autumn. It's my favourite season with crisp mornings, being able to drink a hot mug of tea without sweating to death, the colours of Autumn (and not to mention the fact that it's my birthday in October...) and not only all of that it means we can finally begin to stock our wardrobes with A/W goodies like this pair of trousers from Glamorous. Teamed with the floppy hat and sandals, this is the perfect transitional outfit but imagine them with boots and a fluffy black jumper (with a Christmas Starbucks cup in hand of course!)

Rosy Posy

 *Pink scuba coat: GIRLS ON FILM c/o LITTLE MISTRESS
 Black cigarette trousers: MISSGUIDED 
Trainers: ZARA 
Printed shirt: ASOS

You'll have probably seen me team this shirt and coat together before but it's a combination that I cannot get enough of at the moment. I love the bright pinks mixed together especially with the subtly matching laser cut bag, which happens to be perfect for me going back to university in October with lots of different compartments and zippers that will (read as: hopefully should...?) help me get my life a bit organised! I'm loving slouchy fit outfits and considering everything I'm wearing here can be considered "slouchy" it is definitely one of the most comfortable yet stylish outfits I own!

The Sunday Post: Rhodes Photo Diary


As you'll probably know from all of my recent holiday themed post, Karl and I have just returned from Rhodes in Greece this week after an absolutely amazing week away, hence the rather photo heavy post which is my Holiday Photo Diary. We stayed in the resort of Kolymbia which is so beautiful with gorgeous mountain scenery and warm, clear seas with gorgeous hot weather in the high 30s or low 40s, it made for a perfect week away. Karl and I are the type who like to do a lot of activities on our trips away so we made the most of our week with hiring a quad, snorkelling, visiting the Butterfly Valley, Lindos and the ruins of the Acropolis, the Ostrich Farm, the Old Town and much, much more as well as relaxing on the beach and around our pool. It was such a beautiful holiday and I would highly recommend Rhodes and Kolymbia to anyone who is currently thinking about booking a holiday!

p.s. Sorry about my rather frightening make up free face in some of these snaps, I'm really not the type who sits around in the heat during the day with a full face of make up!
