Yesterday, it was a gorgeous sunny day and I went and did a spot of shopping at Bicester Village accompanied by my Mum and later on, joined by my sister! I decided to take advantage of this lovely day and dress all summery (these kind of days in England tend to be pretty rare at the moment)! I am wearing this vintage ditsy floral maxi skirt which I adore, with a simple Topshop white sleeveless top, my vintage tan leather clogs, my La redoute denim jacket, my Fossil leather clutch and my Ted Baker beetle jem necklace! This look is fairly simple but the movement and style of the maxi skirt really gives the look an extra feminine and girly feel. I hope you like this OOTD and please do excuse the crazy windswept hair!- Enjoy!
For my birthday my lovely sister gifted me this beautiful beetle/bug silver and green jem stone necklace from Ted Baker. I’ve been looking for jewelery with bugs on for ages but never quite found what I was looking for! She got it from an Outlet Village called Bicester Village where she works at Ralph Lauren. I absolutely adore this necklace as it gives a quirky yet elegant touch to an outfit and it is a very simple, classic piece on this long silver chain. It also came in this gorgeous Ted Baker duster bag which is a great way to keep it protected. I have put it with a couple of pieces here. The first is from a previous post with a Topshop shirt and the second it is paired with a floral Zara Blouse! I hope you like!- Enjoy!
Last weekend, I went to London with my family to celebrate my 16th birthday. We went out for lunch and the spicy calamari was delish! Shortly after we visited the Valentino Master of Couture Exhibition at Somerset house!- The exhibition was marvelous with endless rows of Valentino’s show-stoppers released over the years, my favourite’s being mainly from the 60’s! In addition, there was also one of this wedding dresses made for a bride at a high status wedding- the work put into the dress was exceptional with infinite types of lace and embellishment delicately hand sewn all over. As I strolled through the exhibition I then came across many tutorial videos demonstrating how to create some of the dazzling embellishments and decorative techniques used on some of his garments. The exhibition for me successfully presented the talent of Valentino and he should be strongly admired for this work over the years. On this fantastic day I wore, a Topshop white short-sleeved blouse, Topshop camel skater skirt, grey tights, La Redoute duffel coat, my Coco Marie scarf, Accessorize pearl earrings and a Ted Baker beetle jem necklace!- Hope you like! Also I hope you’ll all be noticing a difference in my picture quality as I got a new camera for my b-day!
