Coastal Casual

Ok, this top was 100% one of my better impulse purchases. It's a really nice thick material, and super flattering. I love how this outfit is casual, but still very put together. Also, you just can't beat a classic black pair of patent flats. They go with everything and look fabulous. These are actually my second pair from Clarks (believe it or not, I used to wear them for work). 

This weekend went by far too quickly, and I'm ready for the next one. Even though I'm currently studying in any free time, I still love the flexibility of being at home and changing my seating situation (courtyard vs sofa vs desk vs bed). The barn is coming along, and we now have flooring! The tiles are a marble pattern, it's really gorgeous. In fact, I think the room would make a fabulous photoshoot room! 

I hope you are having a great start to the week. Chat soon!

Weekend in Dorset & Reflecting

I love a good weekend bag. Truth be told I also had a hand luggage rolling suitcase. This outfit is just so chic, and if I owned a yacht I would wear it on there. Or, even if someone invited me over for a warm Summer night dinner. Probably stick to flat shoes for the daytime. Also, these wedges I just couldn't resist, they were another TKMaxx find. I had a bit of moment with that shop, and visited it on an almost daily basis for weeks. Crazy, but how else do you find fabulous bargains?? That's how I justified it! 

Does anyone else go in phases with the type of content they are interested in? For example, when it comes to Youtube videos, sometimes I will be in a flight attendant phase for months on end and then take a break and go back to those channels. Currently, I have rediscovered just how much I love watching The Chateau Diaries with Stephanie Jarvis. I mean, she is such an inspiring person, and I love how her childhood dreams were never squashed. This is something I feel we should never allow anyone to take away, our dreams. 

I'm thinking about my next Youtube video, and how I really want to make time for all the things that fill me. Let me know if there is anything you would be interested in seeing! I'm laying very low for the rest of the Summer, as I'm spending every weekend studying. 

British Summer

Is this outfit and background not just the definition of a British Summer?? Given that it often remains just a little cold, and you basically always need a jumper on hand. Also, is this not the prettiest village? I found this top in a charity shop, and I loved it. Sometimes, it really is worth checking them out, especially if located in a slightly affluent area. There can be some incredible finds. Speaking of, I found these sunglasses in TKMaxx and they are just fabulous! I have been on the hunt for a new pair of sunnies for a while. The only thing I am missing is to get some prescription ones for the pool. 

This week was busy, but I have managed to get properly stuck into studying this weekend. My first US exam is coming up soon, and I feel grossly underprepared. Fortunately I still have some time. I just need to imagine living in the Florida Keys one day, to serve as inspiration. It just so happens to be my dream location to live in. One day it shall most definitely happen!

The perfect smart office look

Happy Monday! I hope you are having a fabulous start to the week. This outfit is so chic, comfy and classy. I love it, and think it would make for a great travel outfit - especially in business class! There is lots of work going on in the house, the barn extension is coming along but still needs proper flooring. But, we have an outdoor courtyard space now, to sit in and relax. Super lovely, as I reckon it will start warming up again. 

I spent the weekend in Poole, Dorset. It was lovely, as always. One of my favourite places to go in the UK for sure. I love being by the harbour (which BTW is the 2nd largest natural harbour in the world - Sydney being the 1st). Photos to follow soon.
