PINK GINGHAM



DRESS - VINTAGE VIA EBAY
SOCKS - TOPSHOP
PLATFORMS - VINTAGE SHELLYS VIA SPITALFIELDS MARKET

We all know how I feel about gingham. And how I feel about pink. So this cute little dress was the perfect combination! It was bought on eBay for a teeny tiny price, it fits a little weirdly on top but I still adore it. It is definitely a summer dress with it's thin cotton, so hopefully it gets warmer here in London.

I can't believe I'm coming to the end of my second week off from uni and I feel like I've not done anything! This week however was a little more productive than last as Thursday was spent at the Pelham Hotel doing the "Jolly Afternoon Tea" with Shaun. It was a really unconventional afternoon tea, I bought the experience as a Valentine's Day gift to him in lieu of the usual bottle of whiskey to give him something different! We had a really nice time, instead of little finger sandwiches and macaroons or tarts there was mini fish and chips, mini cheeseburgers and B-52 jelly shots! And today I have been organising myself for Mothers Day, which for me having a step-mum and a mum is proving to have a fair bit of prep!

Hopefully you're all having a nice weekend so far, and Happy Mothers Day to any of my yummy mummy readers (if I have any - make yourself known if you are!!)

V-DAY GUIDE #3: FASHION UNDER £100

Stuck for what to wear for your date? Wanting to spoil yourself (but not break the bank)? These pieces are cute enough for a night out but can easily be worn any other day of the year. I'm especially in love with the pink leather pencil skirt which would look gorgeous dressed up with a crisp white shirt and strappy heels, or the Tara Starlet dress for something a little more show-stopping.

V-DAY GUIDE #2: LINGERIE OVER £100

Another post with some gorgeous pieces for you to lust over today! This one is a little more luxe than the last. I'm absolutely head over heels for the Fifi Chachnil pieces, they truly encapsulate the romantic Parisian vibe that you might want to recreate this valentines (Eiffel Tower included… sorry for being so crude!)

V-DAY GUIDE #1: LINGERIE UNDER £100

Alright, so Valentine's ain't for everybody. There's no need to have one day a year to tell someone you love them, I totally get it. However, I love any excuse to get all dolled-up, eat at a disgustingly expensive restaurant and hobble home arm-in-arm with my darling boy. It's nice to be romanced, let's not lie. But romance doesn't have to be from somebody else, romance yourself! 

Anyway, that's kind of aside the point. Over the next few days leading up to the celebration of St Valentine, I've put together a guide of V-day treats! Now these could be gifts for your other half, gifts for yourself, or simply helping to plan your Valentine's outfit. Starting, of course, with lingerie. I like to find something to suit every pocket, so I will be doing guides that are over £100 or under £100.
