Although The Sun Sinks Into Darkness; There's Always Sparkle, Even In The Darkest Hour

Pretty long title, but I was feeling quite poetic last night as I was thinking about what to call this post. It's homage to my favourite time of year - Autumn. It has always been the perfect season for me and I would love it if we had this weather all year round, but alas, it's only a short bliss. As much as the title is unusual for me, so is this outfit. I have made no secret in holding more than slight umbrage for a full on black outfit. I love colour and tend to express myself through my clothes, which is why it black is scarcely in my wardrobe. 

It would take a gem of a dress to break this, and Vivien of Holloway delivered.....well, they delivered some time ago as I bought this dress a couple of years ago but had never worn it (re see above). It was relaxing in the back of my wardrobe while I spun around in colourful dresses without a care in the world. I came across it while I was having another clear out and scorned myself for leaving it unloved for so long. How could I have done such a thing? It's flipping gorgeous!
Cardigan: H&M (Brown not available online but should be in store)
Belt: Simply Be^
Sandals: New Look^
This halterneck dress is from their Luxury range and I bought it during one of their in-store sales. I love how the intensity of the black satin is broken up by the lace overlay. The neckline is super feminine and the nip in the waist is great for a belt accessory. Other accessories included my dark brown cardigan and the most beautiful of beaut sparkly sandals. I adore this outfit and although I may change the footwear with the temperature dropping, a pair of fab ankle boots will have me walking through the multicoloured leaves with joy.

'til next time.

Love and hugs,

Find It In Everything: Summer 2015

It’s that time again. Today marks the official start of Autumn (YAAAAAAAY!!), so here’s another Find It In Everything. Summer is without doubt my least favourite season, but even I have to admit, London looks simply stunning when bathed in sunlight. I was really spoilt for choice in regards to the pictures I wanted to share so there a few more than usual, but I hope you enjoy nonetheless. FYI, the first picture is of the sky one early evening. I know, right?! <3

So that was Summer, now onto Autumn. Autumn is my absolute favourite time of year; I really can’t express my utter un-relenting love for it. I can’t wait to start snapping away and showing you how London looks in the Autumn sunshine.

‘til next time!

Love and hugs,

Seeing Double

You'd be forgiven in thinking you'd seen this dress on my blog already, but you haven't. There is nothing wrong with re-wearing an outfit and changing things up a bit, but sometimes you find yourself buying and wearing such similar things, it's almost like seeing double. 

The lovely Hanna had me confused when she thought that I'd blogged about this dress in a previous post, and I was adamant that I hadn't but also couldn't remember if I indeed had something that looked similar in my wardrobe. I headed home and there is was. This gem is so much like the dress I'm blogging about today and I can totally see why Hanna thought she'd seen it before! I guess when buying clothes your eyes get drawn to certain things and subsequently find you have some items following a pattern. 
Dress: AX Paris (via Simply Be)^
Cardigan: South (via Very)^
Leggings: South (via Very)
Shoes: Simply Be^
Cream and white were colours I never wore. You could bet that as soon as I stepped outside of the house I'd walk into a bush and completely ruin what I was wearing, but I'm becoming more confident that I'm not so much of a klutz. The lace panel across the middle breaks up the cream and also makes accessorising easier with black accents. I wore this for a run of the mill day at work but you can jazz this up with heels and some centrepiece jewellery for an evening out. I love clothes that are versatile, particularly with dresses, so I'm always happy to add items like this into my collection. 

'til next time!
