Two-for-one…

September 18, 2014

farmers_market_021 farmers_market_024What We Wore!

Over the weekend we jumped on the tube a few stops up to oval and visited the farmers market. The farmers market was recommended to us by my good blogging friend Ashley, who also joined us for a mooch and the best grilled cheese toasties ever, fact! Dave kindly took outfit photographs for us and of the amazing food on offer, but more on that next time.

While the weather is being as fickle as anything, one minute it’s hot, the next it’s chilly and back to wearing tights! This dress has saved me, I hate being over hot or too cold – so while its warm this dress is my savour. I teamed with my new boots (which I just adore!) army shirt and clutch bag. This is a tried and tested outfit, which is easy as pie to put together but is effective… which in my opinion is the best kind of outfit.

farmers_market_033farmers_market_029I love Ashley’s Dahlia dress and her H&M trench coat, in-fact I’m a little jealous and after one myself. It’s kind of duster meets trench and ever so chic.

Amongst The Reeds…

September 14, 2014

park_blog_004 park_blog_019park_blog_026This week I had a much needed hair cut, nothing to drastic but the ends taken off and a little length off the fringe and boy does it feel good, super soft and looks much healthier. It’s all thanks to my dear friend Allen, in exchange for a free hair cut for myself and Dave, I cooked him dinner. I opted for tacos, it was very good idea (we’ve never really had them at home before) and it was a great evening with great people.
Annnnd I wanted to Thank You all for voting for me in the Zalando Blogger Awards, it really means a lot having your support and if you haven’t voted yet… pretty please will you vote – you could win a £100 voucher :-)
park_blog_013park_blog_029 I also stocked up on outfit photographs this weekend, as Dave’s going away on holiday with his friends later this week (Coco & I will miss him :-( ) and with no photographer I thought I better make the most of it and dressy snazzy.
We’ve had a really nice and relaxing weekend, as well as our usual dog walk in the common, we also visited the Oval farmers market and met up with my blogging friend Ashley but you’ll see all that later in the week :-)

amy_blog_008amy_blog_007It’s been a long week and it’s still not over, I’ve done nightshifts then a whole week of 6 am starts (which is pretty painful let alone with the added nightshift of doom!). These photos were taken after said nightshift and a day of trying to sleep but not really getting any… To try make myself feel human I got dolled up. The little half up bun has fast became my favorite go to hair style, well when I’m not wearing a hat ;-) The dress is from Topshop’s Reclaimed collection, which uses old fabrics from past collections and up-cycles them into new styles – I guess its the closet to recycling Topshop will ever get!amy_blog_016amy_blog_010What I’m wearing -

Au Revoir Summer…

September 7, 2014

IMG_6651IMG_6647IMG_6638Bonjour Autumn!

Fall dressing is defiantly my favorite! I feel at my most comfortable with dark tights on, I also love layering and creating texture within outfits, which is rather hard to do in the warmer months. Don’t get me wrong I hate winter, with its dark and cold nights…but I love autumn and the fashion that goes along with it. I’m wearing a lot of oldish pieces but have realised some haven’t made it onto the blog yet. Like this grey clutch bag, I’ve had it forever (like since I was 19 or 20… such a long time ago!!) and then this duster coat is a couple months old, I’m unsure why two items that are very much loved haven’t been shown off before. I shall do better and go through my wardrobe and see what else needs an outing!

Tough Florals…

September 4, 2014

amy_blog_001amy_blog

I’m on a roll and have another outfit post for you to feast upon. I wore this to work the other day and got a lot of complements on my dress, not bad for a £3 vintage sale rail! It was originally a midi dress, I brought it way back when, when I wasn’t into midi’s and it was all about short dresses so I altered the length. Now when ever I’m in a vintage or thrift shop I keep an eye out for another of this dress with its longer length, I’d love it in a midi. Also I love the combination of this dress and bag, they work perfectly together. As the bag and dress are rather girly, I’ve toughened the look up a little with my leather jacket, thick black belt and my DM’s.

Lilleshall Abbey…

September 2, 2014

amy_abbey_013amy_abbey

Finally I have a new outfit post for you… About time I hear you say ;-) Well it’s clothes you’ve seen before but in a jazzy new location. While I was back home (which feels like a life time ago now) we visited Lilleshall Abbey. It’s a beautifully ruined Abbey set in rural grounds, it’s truly breath taking. We explored a lot of new areas while I was back home, we also visited a National Trust property with lovely grounds that even had deer and stags. I also got to spend some quality time with my Father, I’m a real daddy’s girl and it was brilliant fun hanging out with him.

Let’s Catch Up!

August 27, 2014

instagram01Hey There!
It’s been a while and I’m awfully sorry for my absence. What with my trip back home visiting my Father for his Birthday, then staying on to help my Mother move house and then having to be back at work, I just haven’t had time for outfit photographs or even to get the ones we took while away off Dave’s camera… I’m hoping to rectify this over the weekend but for now I thought I’d share some of my recent instagram snaps. It’s been a good couple of months for food and drinks!! See you soon, hopefully with a new outfit post ;-)
