Abbey Park

I had my first Saturday off work since February last week so we decided to make the most of it and went for a picnic at Abbey Park followed by a trip to the farm. It was such a beautiful day and we really did have so much fun. Toby even told me it was the best day ever which was so adorably cute but it also did break my heart a little realising how much he must miss having me around properly at weekends.
Here are a few pictures of our wonderful day. I seem to be making a habit of forgetting to take the proper camera out with me so once again, I apologise for the poor camera phone quality and shoddy editing!

Zara Sale

Zara Website

Zara is most definitely one of my favourite shops. I just love the simple elegance of all their pieces. My current wardrobe is predominantly monochrome and I've been getting a little bored of this. I decided to add a splash of colour and took full advantage of  the Zara summer sale! I am so in love with the coat and I really can't wait for autumn so I get to wear it properly, not that I'm wishing the sunshine away just yet though! Pictures don't do the trousers justice either, the print is gorgeous and they're so great for dressing up with a pair of chunky heels or dressing down with a baggy t-shirt to brighten up those lazy days. I also got some adorable bits for Toby too. By far the best boyswear on the high street!

Graduate Fashion Week 2014

all pictures via vogue

Two weeks ago I was lucky enough to attend Graduate Fashion Week in London. My boyfriend Adams collection (pictured above) was selected to show for the De Monfort University catwalk and it was outstanding! The whole show was incredible and I cannot even begin to describe the level of talent. I also cannot even begin to describe how proud I am of him. He really has worked so incredibly hard for this and it really has paid off. His inspiration came from photographs of fishermen and trawlermen from the early twentieth century combined with unstructured tailoring. Key garments of the collection included knotted wool vests inspired by fishing nets and the technique originally used to make them. He also designed and developed his own prints and I definitely think I may have to 'borrow' the long purple shirt! Here are a few of my other favourites. I highly recommend you click here to see the whole show though as it really was amazing!

An Update in Instagram - 100 Happy Days

So earlier this year I started the 100 Happy Days challenge on Instagram and yesterday I managed to complete it! I've been feeling a bit down the last few weeks. I got a new job which is fantastic and I really couldn't be happier, but I work the most unsociable hours and once Toby has gone to bed things do get  a bit lonely. I know it sounds really silly but it really has just reminded me to be a little bit more positive and that there is always something to smile about. After all, looking back at all the beautiful moments I managed to capture while completing this challenge, I really can't complain at all can I?!

Palazzo Trousers

After far too long of pretty much living in nothing but leggings I decided to treat myself to this gorgeous pair of palazzo pants. They are ridiculously flattering and I really can't wait to wear them properly. All I need now is the perfect top to wear them with and also somewhere to actually wear them may be helpful...

2014 So Far!

So somehow its February already! I really don't know where the time has gone! Once again it's been a while, I've been finding it quite tricky trying to find a spare moment or two to blog recently and in all honesty I fell a little out of love with the whole idea.  I've now found myself at a point where I do actually want to do something with this little blog, I'm just not sure exactly what. I was considering for a while scrapping the whole thing and completely starting afresh with another. I could not bring myself to do it in the end so I think for now I'm just going to have a quick name change (ideas appreciated) and maybe a little move around while I figure out exactly what direction I want to take this place. So watch this space guys! 
If there's anything you would like to see me post do let me know as I'm always craving some new ideas! 

Until then, enjoy a little update of mine and Toby's year so far! 
(Ignore the photo quality and poor phone editing, I'm currently waiting for my camera to be fixed)
