AUTUMNAL FEELS…


I’m starting to fully embrace the Autumn-Winter season this year with open arms. Hot chocolate, snuggling up to warm radiators, pyjama days, thick knitwear, boots, scarves and woolly hats. Makes me feel all warm inside.

Mention this blog post to me again by January though and I might be over it. But for now, here’s to cold weather and warm feelings.

THE TOWNHOUSE DREAM

Doesn’t everyone dream of living in a Victorian townhouse? And if you’ve never dreamt it, why not?! The best of them, located in Kensington & Chelsea in London and in Greenwich village across the pond in New York City are just magical exteriors that make you imagine the lives, the history and the trials & tribulations of those lucky enough to live in such beautiful surroundings. No? Well I do. Sadly, none of these houses are mine and probably never will be, but there’s no harm in dreaming and blogging about it is there?

WISHING ON A SUNDAY…

I feel like a whole big chunk of my life is made up of wishlists. Wishlists for clothing. Wishlists for travel. Wishlists for food. Wishlists for pretty much every aspect of life that I am yet to have. Avenue 32 asked me to create a wishlist of items I love the most on their website, so I thought that on this fine Sunday, I would bring you said list.

My student loan will be a no-show once I’ve got my hands on that Jerome Dreyfuss bag. SJP is apparently a fan and that’s enough for me. And let’s face it, there’s no need to convince me to buy anything from J Brand.

AVENUE32

NECKLACE // EDDIE BORGO
SHIRT // VIVETTA
DRESS // EUDON CHOI
LEGGINGS // J BRAND
BAG // JEROME DREYFUSS
SLIP-ONS // JOSHUA SANDERS

So basically, Avenue 32 is where I’ve spent the past hour wishing, however some of these items are just a bit too nice not to make that wish into a reality, right? And I pinned that Eudon Choi dress a while back (Pinterest being my main source for wishing) and now I’ve found it Avenue 32…..

On a side note, I’ve been following Ascia of The Hybrids blog for over a year now and back in February she posted this  on the blog, an outfit featuring the Joshua Sanders slip-ons, and don’t they look divine?! Ascia calls them her mermaid shoes and I couldn’t think of a better name.

Well I know where my next pay check will be heading.

There’ll be more about that later on my blog!                                                                     Middle row: [left] Found this on Pinterest, are they just gorgeous?!

STYLE REFRESH: MESSY BOB

I am not one to be precious of my hair and never have been. My hair has been long(ish), bleached to within an inch of its life, pixie-cut short, darker brown, ombre-blonde, and one (or ahem, a few) case of (unintentional) orange.

As the mercury creeps up the thermometer and us Brits tempt fate by leaving the house without a (gasp!) coat, I suddenly decide I am once again bored with my current hairstyle. Apart from the pixie-crop, my hair has been in every one of those states listed above in the past year and I am about to change it again.

In time for Spring/Summer, I’d like a modern-messy-blonde-bob, with bleach highlights. I know, I know, whenever anyone mentions the word bleach the hair nazi’s come out in full force giving you the “you’ll fry your hair!!!” spiel. Like I said before I’m not precious about my hair. It’s just hair, it’ll grow back.

Below are my hair inspirations…. My original inspiration came from Instagram user chrisspy who’s selfie below I adorrrrrrrre.
