What I Wore To Brighton!

April 15, 2014

amy_brighton_012amy_brighton1amy_brighton_021As the title of this post suggests this is my Brighton outfit, I also thought I’d add a couple of my favorite Brighton snaps to set the mood… Also this dress has fast become a firm favorite and I want to wear it all the time! I love the print, pockets and shape, it’s just so easy to wear. This time I styled it with my beloved cropped jumper as it was a little chilly by the seaside and my hat. I’m very surprised I was able to keep my hat on and it didn’t blow off once, even when on the beach and pier!! I’m glad I had my hat on, it stopped my hair being fully windblown and go crazy big.amy_brighton_017amy_brighton_001 amy_brighton_009amy_brighton_014amy_brighton_019amy_brightonWhat I’m wearing -

Saturday Street Style…

April 12, 2014


Illustration Addition!

I’ve been drawing again, trying to do a least one drawing a week. Then some times the feeling takes hold of me and I end up drawing lots, like this time. I’ve ended up with a bulk of drawings, thought I’d separate them into categories and this post is dedicated to street style. I found these images on the web, sadly I haven’t taken them (hoping to start the street style photography up again in the summer). I picked these images because I felt they were wearing something I’d like or they had a special something about them.

Brighton, You so pretty!

April 10, 2014


Day trippin’ with my boys!

We headed to Brighton for a day trip, we left London with lovely sunshine and arrived in Brighton to a grey and very bland sky. Too bad we didn’t take the sunshine with us!
We still had a blast, wandering along the pebbled beach, which Coco really enjoyed. Then headed in search of a dog friendly pub. After a really good pub lunch, it was time for a vintage mooch. Beyond retro is a must on any vintage shopping trip, sadly I only came away with a new tote bag, pair of sunnies and a bow tie for Dave. I guess thats still rather successful but I was hoping for a new dress!
A trip to Brighton isn’t complete without seeing the famous Pavilion and what better spot to take a couple of outfit pictures. I will share these in a post to come :-)
All in all, it was a lovely day trip and here are some of my favorite moments.

blossom_018blossom3Ta-da! Say hello to my new dress!

I’ve wanted this particular dress for quite some time but sadly it was far to pricey… Then while I was waiting to meet a friend, I popped into Urban to kill some time and to my amazement it was in the sale. With a good chunk knocked off the price too! Without further ado, I snapped it up and headed to the tills and I haven’t looked back since. To mix up my hat selection I opted for my printed fedora, just to change it up a little ;-)blossom_024blossom2blossom_005What I’m wearing -

Dress, Hat & Necklace – Urban Outfitters

Jacket – Warehouse

Bag – Vintage

Shoes – Dr Martens

Hidden Pathways…

April 4, 2014

amy_red_010amy_redDave and I went exploring our local area and ended up in Wandsworth common, we had been to Clapham Junction for a browse along the high street at all the independent stores. I picked up the best second hand zinc tube and a very pretty, but slightly over grown and wild  hydrangea plant. I’m really pleased with this score! I’m planning to take some photos of my potted plants, they’re all sprouting and hopefully will blossom soon. I’m really enjoying gardening…I just need to get onto the weeding, not so fun! You’ve pretty much seen this outfit before, but its one of my faves, so no doubt you’ll see it again. Next time I must remember to take my jumper off and show the dress off to its full beauty!

No Parking…

March 30, 2014

no_parking_021no_parkingIt’s been a while since Dave and I were able to shoot some blog photos. He’s worked seven days straight and when he did have spare time he could be found at the race tracks, taking pictures of very fast cars. After Dave finished up an extra shift on Saturday, it meant I had him all to myself for the rest of the weekend, which meant two things. 1st a date night and 2nd Sunday family walk.
We went to Bill’s for dinner and boy was it good, we were both gutted we didn’t have our cameras as it was very pretty. The decor was amazing, I’d happily have it as my home and the food was just as pretty and real tasty. Then today we took Coco for a long walk but before heading to the common, we stopped by these garage doors for a mini shoot.no_parking_039no_parking_014no_parking1 no_parking_040What I’m wearing -

Jacket – Army Surplus

T-shirt – Primark

Skirt & Necklace – Wallis

Bag – Miu Miu

Sunglasses – Topshop

Hat – Urban Outfitters

Shoes - Dr Martens

no_parking_006no_parking2no_parking_032This skirt is something a little different to my usual taste. Its from the W collection at Wallis, the W collection is a premium and limited range . I loved the colours and print, plus its fun to try out new styles. I’m really glad I took a chance and added my own spin with the Dr Matens and my signature hat.

Pop Of Spring…

March 25, 2014

floral floral6A couple weeks back we were having a rather warm spell and I was able to ditch the big winter coat and fluffy jumper! In fact I’d almost wished I hadn’t worn tights it was that warm, unbelievable.. I know right! Especially as I’ve had to bring the winter coat back out this week :-( such fickle weather we have here in Britain. This outfit consist of old favorites and my yay it’s spring blue bag. Annoyingly my fringe didn’t play ball and was misbehaving on this particular day. It really bugs me when it’s not neat and tidy!
