Ashwell Springs OOTD

Where the water trickles from a tiny spring, in an area surrounded by character with quaint little cottages to traditional British pubs. Ashwell Springs is a place I want to visit again.





OOTD Details

Denim Skirt Dungaree- H&M (very old)
Vintage Blouse- Glastonbury Stand
Metallic Slipons- £20 Topshop (similar here)
Army Jacket- £29 Ark
Bowler Hat- £4 eBay

Glenn had found a place near us he wanted to visit, so last weekend we headed to Ashwell Springs for a spot of lunch and a wonder round the village. I went for a more casual, comfortable OOTD with my trusty denim skirt dungarees that I have had for donkey years. They are just one of those pieces that never seem to get dated, plus you can take the straps off and wear just the skirt. Today I am off on a helicopter ride and tour of Hatfield House, which is what we should have been doing the day we got engaged, but due to our lovely British weather it was cancelled. At least this way Glenn can enjoy it and not worry about popping the question. Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Zara Maxi OOTD

This dress made me feel like a Grecian princess surrounded by beautiful purple blossom. It flows to create a boho sophistication and was the perfect outfit to watch the Ibiza sunset.



Outfit Details
Maxi Dress- £18 Zara Sale
Head Piece- £2 eBay
Shoes- £12 Primark

This dress is just beautiful and although it's a small and a tiny bit tight round the boob area (que extra arm boob) I had to have it for my Ibiza wardrobe. I also think it will be perfect for a wedding reception I will be attending soon. Hope you are all ready for the weekend, I know I am.

Crochet Dress Ibiza OOTD

I fell in love with a country full of history, beautiful beaches, chilled out vibes with party central super clubs. Ibiza has everything you could ask for from a holiday.







Outfit Details
Dress- €10 brought in Ibiza
Daisy Headband- 99p eBay
Slipons- £4 Primark

This outfit was warn around Ibiza town while on a photo walk (photos to come soon). It is a beautiful quaint little town and I had plenty to fill my camera up with. The dress was brought the day before from a little shop in San Antonio, crochet has been massive this summer so I was so pleased to find such a unique item and my lovely Glenn treated me. I have a couple of posts from Ibiza to share and then I'm afraid I will moving into A/W style. I am going to try and hold back though as I am hanging on to warmth.

July Top Fblogger Picks

July has been a great month for outfits and I decided to choose looks based on my body shape and what I would choose to wear. All three are quite different looks that sum up my different style tastes; sophisticated, vintage and sexy.

VIXPO

First up is the sophisticated look for VIXPO run by Victoria India. She seems to have weight demons from reading her posts but I feel she has nothing to worry about and always looks fab. She describe herself as:
I like cups of tea, bubble baths, orange chocolate and bargains


Keiko Lynn

Next is one of my favourite bloggers ever. Her photos are stunning, her posts are quick and to the point and she has some great tutorial content. She is also massive in the fashion blogging world so you have more then likely heard of her. Keiko Lynn. She doesn't really need a introduction just take a moment to admire this stunning vintage dress.


Sexy Naught Bitchy

Finally we have Nery Hdez from Sexy Naught Bitchy. She oozes sex appeal and photographs her outfits in some stunning locations. She is a spanish beauty with a great love for stand out dresses. She has a little statement on her blog about her blog name:

'Be Sexy
Be Naughty
Be Bitchy
Don't be Afraid'


Those are my July top picks, hope you enjoyed. Not to rub it in but hopefully I will be sipping on a cocktail by the pool in Ibiza while you read this. Don't worry the weekend is nearly here.

George Leopard Print Jumpsuit OOTD

Leopard print can be a tricky one to make look classy. You don't want to look like your overwhelmed in print and trying to do a Tarzan impression so it needs to be simple and in a classic cut. In steps the George at Asda jumpsuit; sophisticated, comfortable and stand out.






OOTD Details

Leopard Print Jumpsuit*- George at Asda
Floppy Hat- £5 eBay
Crochet Jacket- £3 eBay
Satchel Bay- £5 Primark
Cleated Heels- £12 Primark


I was asked to style this jumpsuit so I went for a summer theme, however throw a roll neck jumper underneath and add some chunky boots and it will be a great autumn piece as well. If you look closely you can see a new addition to my left hand. It has been a very exciting week and tomorrow I am off to Ibiza. The jumpsuit is already packed in my case. I am going to schedule a couple of posts but it will be pretty quiet round here for a bit. Hope you all have a lovely Friday.
