gingham print dress


This week has seen me yet again spending money I don't have on the Zara website, this time round I went for a green parka with a fur trim hood, I've been on the hunt for the perfect parka for years now and finally think I've found the one. I adore the gold button detailing and like how the cosy lining inside is detachable along with the hood so it can be worn in all seasons. I've also finally found myself the perfect black leather clutch, it fits my iphone, cards and and lipstick in perfectly and is the ideal size to take on a night out. That all being said my favourite new addition to my wardrobe has to be this super stylish gingham print dress that I was kindly sent over from It fits absolutely perfectly but is a little over-sized so is feels nice and comfy and is easy to move around in, I just love how it can be worn with sandals for a casual daytime outfit or dressed up with heels for going out. I've spotted that they have this same style dress in other prints and colours which I will most certainly be buying at some point due to how much of a great cut and style it is.

the isle of wight | day two

My last day on the Isle of Wight was super chilled and I didn't take many photos until I headed down to the beach at sunset, hence the shortness of this post. I thought I'd still put them up though as the sunset was incredible that night. I'm back home now so will be back to regular outfit and lifestyle posts soon.

the isle of wight | day one

On the Isle of Wight I have yet again been blessed with the most beautiful weather I could have asked for, it's been super sunny and warm enough to not have to be wrapped up in a coat. I spent my first morning playing on the beach with my family's black and white spaniel called Max, he's the most playful little fella ever.

Later on in the day at sunset we headed off to the needles park which is a little amusement park on top of the cliff with an amazing view of the sea and the isle of wight needles. Out of season it has an eery, broken down feel and you can walk around without spotting another person. I made the most of that fact and hopped on a horse on the merry-go-round but subsequently fell off in a rather unladylike manor and bruised most of my leg. 

I will put up a post on day two very soon, hope you are all enjoying the sunshine too!

I'm back on the Isle of Wight for a little family holiday and have used the beautiful weather as an excuse to get snap happy and take lots and lots of photos. I'm going to start off today with an outfit post and put up the rest of the pictures from day one later on. I've been wearing my new Maui Jim sunglasses non-stop and have found them to be absolutely perfect due to their lightweight feel and expensive look, and on the opposite end of the budget scale I've been loving my Primark Wildfox lookalike Beverly Hills jumper.
