NAUTICAL FEELING

Last week I was sent this gorgeous navy, linen dress by Great Plains. I'm in dire need of dresses to wear this summer and I'm absolutely delighted with this little number! Not only is it linen, so very lightweight and cool, but I love the colour and it has a real nautical feel about it. I don't really do the nautical thing, (it reminds me of my former 14-year-old pierced faced, anchor smothered self), but i do like how subtle this is. It's subtle, but I can still picture myself wearing it on a boat, lounging about in the sunshine.... bring on summer I say!

NEW SUNGLASSES...

I was recently sent some sunglasses from a company called Zero UV, who have an amazing range of super cool sunglasses all at bargain prices! I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot more of their frames on my blog over the coming summer, but for now, here's a cheeky picture of Matt photographing me taking a selfie in my new shades!

THE FIRST DAY OF SUMMER

Last weekend was bloody lovely! I spent Saturday styling and art directing a sci fi themed photoshoot - I was working with some fab designer pieces and the team was great so I can't wait to show you the finished images! I had a quiet night in with Matt that evening, watching Green Wing and editing photos, then on Sunday morning the weather was so beautiful that we decided to go to Springfield Park for a picnic!

These photos were taken by the canal in Clapton - I was wearing vintage high waist shorts with a Cure tee that I bought from a vintage shop in Southampton YEARS ago. I really should update my t-shirt collection.



After our picnic we went for a walk before I headed to Meroretro for a little blogger's event organised by the lovely Julia of Stylonylon. It was a wonderful afternoon, I will be sure to get some photos up for you soon. Have a great weekend everyone!

PLYMOUTH

The weekend before last I headed down to Devon to see my family and also celebrate one of my best friend's engagements! One late afternoon I decided to take my boyfriend to a place in Plymouth where I used to "hang out" loads as a teenager. It's called "The Hoe", weird name I know… I hadn't been there for a couple of years so not only was it nice and nostalgic but I really enjoyed showing Matt around - he got some fab photos of the seafront!



After exploring Plymouth's coast, we met my parents and went to an amazing hidden-away mexican restaurant by the docks. I wore my tartan Mod Dolly dress with my new(isn) vintage blouse, which I bought online from Beyond Retro. (I know you're probably all sick of seeing me wear this dress, what can I say, it's my favourite dress!)  I don't usually like clashing outfits, but I love this faded floral next to the heritage tartan! What do you think?

SPRING SHADES











I was recently contacted by shadestation.co.uk and asked to review a pair of shades from their extensive sunglasses range. With spring hot at our heels I jumped at the opportunity, although it's difficult to wear sunglasses a lot of the time due to my prescription specs, I do plan to wear contact lenses more often this summer so that I can accessorise with shades - oh and shield my eyes from the sun of course.

I chose a pair of Matt Blue Ray Ban sunglasses - I've always loved the Ray ban style, (who doesn't?), and the matt effect makes them that little bit different.... also blue is my favourite colour! Here I'm wearing them with my favourite beanie hat, which I basically wear every day, a tee from Dahlia and high waisted shorts. I've really been enjoying my grey tights recently.... I get so bored of wearing black tights all of the time so it's nice to have an alternative.
