i think these photographs illustrate perfectly how happy i was to be prancing about a field of flowers for a few hours. i think there is something good for the soul (maybe just mine?) about going out looking at beautiful things and taking photographs you just love? creative indulgence perhaps?

a thirty minute bus ride from west croydon (the bus stops right outside the farm) is mayfield lavender farm. i suggest going earlier in the day rather than later as we left around two thirty and there were twice as people people there as when we arrived. a lavender bunch was obviously purchased for a photo prop but is now making my flat smell petty delightful! once you've frolicked to your hearts content they have a pretty impressive selection in their cafe (a few GF treats were there too to keep my hanger at bay). basically i highly recommend if you after after a dreamy day out just outside of old london town.  

just a note to say this is one of my favourite posts i have shot for a while and it feels good to be enjoying blogging again.

palmin' around.

top | zara
jeans | topshop
shoes | adidas

i think its pretty fair to say that palm print is having a 'moment', as i obviously needed to add to my white embroidered top collection (read, i really didn't) this guy came home to live with me after falling head over heels in my local zara (i've even mentioned it in a previous blog post). 
one thing though, it does crease like a bitch, cue me swiftly trying to get them out with the straighteners whilst attempting to leave the house on time.

it feels a little trivial to be talking about these kinds of things after the last months events in london and quite frankly all over the globe. i live and work very close to the tragic fire that took so many lives this week and seeing how the community has pulled together in a time of need has lighted my heavy heart a little. if you want to help in anyway, all information is here

stars in their eyes.

dress | dancing leopard 
bag | zara
shoes | adidas 
sunglasses | missguided similar 

i've been obsessed with stars for as long as i can remember, which means i own allot of star print clothing (which somehow has never made it onto the blog?!) a large amount of my jewellery is astrological based, i even use starts as my bullet point shape of choice.

this little number combines my fave print and my fave dress shape, i'm really loving how wrap dresses are making waves at the moment. they are so flattering and for someone who suffers with bloating issues they got me covered even on bad days, so i've been snapping up a few of those guys! 

another style rule i've been living by is khaki jacket and white trainers with everything, i mean i've got a problem. it makes me feel that 'cool girl' vibe, that i most definitely do not possess but give it a good go try (and normally fail) top tip on the trainers if you are a UK 5.5 or smaller you can buy the junior versions of these as they around the fifty pound mark rather then seventy or eighty! thrifty liv always looking out for you guys!
