Blue dress and a basket of flowers

Dress~Vintage Style Me/ Bird necklace~Dorothy Perkins/ Socks~Primark/ Shoes~Topshop  

Hey lovelies! I am visiting my parents in Devon for the week and it is actually sunny. I couldn't believe my eyes when I hopped off the train and I was surrounded by warm air, for the first time in sooo long.
I finally got to wear my new dress from Vintage Style Me, I love everything they have and I often try to purchase an item on my pay days. I really love the collar/bib detail and the colour is such a nice blue. It is also the perfect length for summer days and I love how floaty and comfortable it is.
The flowers are handpicked from the garden, that's something I really miss about living in London, not having a place to grow pretty petals. I went a bit mad and we began running out of baskets and vases to put all of the flowers in.
I also had a really amazing lunch, which included salad, cashew and banana bread and a cheeky midday Mojito. I love eating outside in the summer. The week has been a really lovely break from the city so far, but I do miss London already.

I am still holding a giveaway which you can enter here as there is a basket of goodies to be won!

OOTD:Polka Dot Sailor

Hat~ebay/Two piece~ebay/Tights~Primark/Shoes~Office

Hello lovely readers!

Oh why all of this rain? I just want a few days of warmth, so my clothes can dry and little freckles pop up on people's cheeks. I took these snaps above on one of the sunnier days this month and was unsure for ages on how to style the little nautical outfit. I purchased it on ebay, I just happened to stumble across it and fell in love. I was so scared it wasn't going to fit and I would look like an adult child and a bit ridiculous, but I decided to go for it anyway. For this reason I was a bit apprehensive about posting the outfit, but having turned twenty two a few days ago, I felt it best to just go all out on my outfits whilst I am still young. I've decided to just embrace being this age and being able to wear what I really like and hopefully not be judged.

I love the little details on the top and anything with polka dots makes me smile. The shoes I got from Office, in the sale, they are suede and really comfy and I am finding myself pairing them with a lot of my clothes.

Hoping everybody is well and I have a couple of beauty related type posts coming up, just to mix it up a little bit.

Turning 22

Head crown~Roses & Clementines/ Dress~Generation Collective

Yesterday was my 22nd birthday, I am always a bit skeptical about having a party or how to celebrate and so this year I decided to have a picnic. Originally I was going to have a picnic in a park, but seeing as the weather was a bit fickle I decided to have one indoors. My housemate and I decided to make an indoor tent by sewing all of our duvets together and making a huge Moroccan type tent in the living room. We filled it with fresh flowers, pillows and lots of jam tarts and cocktails.

I had been waiting to wear this amazing pink dress from Generation Collective on etsy, I fell in love with its vintage frills and Little Bo Peep style and decided to treat myself for my birthday. The lovely flower crown I am wearing is from Roses & Clementines, I got it custom made especially to go with the dress and I was so delighted with how lovely it was and how much it matched my outfit.

I had a lovely day despite the rain and enjoyed dressing up and being surrounded by my nearest and dearest friends.

I hope everyone is enjoying this month of May and hopefully a bit more sunshine is just around the corner!
