Dreams don't happen on their own.

Early this week feels like so long ago already. As I already mentioned I had my brothers wedding last weekend and a few days off work, which I really made the most of! On Monday I spent the afternoon with Chris and most of the day getting organized and planning some personal things. I have been feeling a bit more motivated after seeing my Grandad from New Zealand after about 10 years! He really believes in me and my blog and it's made me think of everything I can do if I only put my mind to it. Saying that and acting on it as well has already been making me happier and at this stage of the week I have some potentially very exciting things to come!

This post shows my lunch out with Chris, in one of our favourite places near where we live! It has loads of character and as it was a sunny day we sat outside with a bite to eat to relax. With a lovely cup of coffee by my side and my note book I got jotting down some ideas! It was nice to share ideas with Chris and gt his input as well, after all he is 'behind the lens' pretty much for most of my photos!

My outfit is my usual personal style, girly, casual and perfect for a day of relaxing and sunshine. I am wearing a gorgeous midi skirt from She Inside, which is a really nice length for late summer days. The stripes worn with a bright colour is really fresh and pretty.

A dress for princesses.

As you may have seen on my Instgram I spent the weekend just gone at my brothers wedding. The day was so much fun and there was even a photobooth to capture lots of fun photos! I have yet to upload any of my photos from the day but this post features a beautiful dress from Chicwish I changed into for the evening. It was perfect for the occasion as it matched the colour scheme and also felt very wedding like and girly! One thing I fell in love with is the embroidery detail, it makes the dress look so expensive and unique. The intricate detail means any other styling can be kept to bare minimum, with nude court heels and a blazer (not photographed but worn on the evening). I want more places I can wear it too as I feel like such a princess when wearing it!

The mini skirt.

 photo IMG_3401_zps5b11fcfa.jpg
The new fashion season is majorly upon us now, with most high street stores having an influx of new trends and styles. Autumn/Winter fashion is my favourite, although I dislike the weather (a lot) I love layering and my growing collection of knitwear and coats. This time of year when we are transitioning into colder and shorter days I love experimenting with my outfits and trying new things. This look is the perfect transition outfit, with 60's vibes and pretty details, that are among my favourite things when it comes to styling. You will be seeing a lot of similar styles on my blog this season as I am so happy with how it made me feel.

The mini skirt is back and I have already seen so many variations on the high street! Retro styling is something I have loved for years and years, with vintage clothing and styles being something I always cling onto. So with this iconic 60's item is making its way back, in different prints and shapes! It's going to be exciting styling it in fun ways, whether it be fun, glam or modernized! this outfit has gone for a more casual, almost festival look to it! Rocking a denim shirt and long statement lace cardigan. I loved mixing the paisley print of the Miss Selfridge mini skirt with the Chicwish Lace cardie, mixing textures is so much fun! Everyone needs a classic denim shirt in their wardrobe for all occasions and my one is a few years old from Topshop and still going strong. I added my bowler hat, black lace up ankle boots and a cute vintage bag for a unique touch and a bit of personality.
