Last Light…

September 26, 2014

garage_photos_002garage_photos_022garage_photos_025Sometimes I think an outfit location dictates what style of outfit I fancy wearing and with this location has fast become my favorite and there are a number of reasons why I like it so much. Firstly, It’s really close to our house, secondly I love the urban vibe it gives to outfits and finally because its down a private road means we can take outfit photos with no one watching :-)  These boots are also becoming a firm favorite, as I’m not really one for heels I’m surprised how much I’ve been wearing them and how comfortable they are! Also years I’ve rekindled my love for clutch bags, I’m now on the hunt for more vintage ones!

Oval Farmers Market…

September 22, 2014

farmers_market_041farmers_market_023I mentioned in my pervious post about our visit to Oval Farmers Market, so I thought I better share some snaps and boy-o-boy was the food on offer amazing! We had the best grilled cheese sandwiches and coffee, well I had a hot chocolate as I don’t drink coffee… But that grill cheese, I’ll defiantly heading back for that! farmers_market_001 farmers_market_017farmers_market_015farmers_market_019farmers_market_003 farmers_market_005 farmers_market_007 farmers_market_008 farmers_market_012We brought some of this Blackwoods Cheese Company cheese and it is yummy stuff, great in salads! Next time I want to buy more foodie bits from the market as there were some truly great things on offer. Incase your also a SW Londoner the market is in the church grounds (opposite the tube station) and is on from 10am till 3pm.

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.

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.
