Easter Wonderland

Hat~Ebay/Dress~Mod Dolly/ Socks~Primark/ Shoes~JuJu 

Good Morning my loves and Happy Easter Weekend,
I came down to Devon to visit my parents and to participate in the much anticipated egg hunt that takes place every year in my garden. You are never too old to go hunting for chocolate. I have a few favourite places I like to visit when I go home and the grounds of these beautiful gardens seemed like a perfect place to take some snaps.
This dream dress of gingham and girliness is from the ever beloved Mod Dolly, Literally as soon as I saw this dress was going to be made I was so excited to purchase it. I love everything about it and will definitely be a popular item in my wardrobe this summer. It also matched my jelly shoes perfectly, I just love going over the top with colour co-ordination, I can't help it :) .

Hope you have all had a lovely long bank holiday weekend, I would love to hear what you have been up to.

Gingham, Organza, Rosebuds & Lace

Headband~Topshop/Top~The Real McCoy/Skirt~Matalan/Shoes~Office

Hello sweeties,

Oh my what a lovely week it has been. I started off the week feeling groggy and unwell, picking up a sick note from the Doctor and climbing into fresh sheets, with snacks and a bottle of water to hand. However, by Wednesday my energy had rejuvenated and I was really in the mood for a big Spring clean. Meaning I bagged up all the clothes I haven't worn for a few months, photographed them and will be putting them up in a blog sale in the next few days. 
I hadn't really felt myself the past week or so, due to illness and the like, so I decided to dress up in an outfit that made me feel like me again (hence the bundle of images above).
How sweet is this skirt from Matalan? The gingham print and panel of organza is just so pretty and I love the length. I love having a good look around Matalan, especially the Home section, but when I spotted this pinky delight I skipped right up to the tills to purchase it. I think it is going to be one of my statement wardrobe pieces this summer. 

What item is going to be essential to you in the coming warmer season?

DIY: Jazz Up Your Jellies!

Silver Flat Jellies~Primark/ Pink JuJu Jellies~Ebay

Hey my dears,
After months and months of promising a DIY post, I finally had the chance to do one. Now, I am a big fan of Jelly shoes, they are so comfy and perfect for Spring/Summer. I have been style watching recently, especially customers at work and it seems everyone has jumped on the Jellly wagon. Which is lovely! So I decided to do a bit of a makeshift thing and decorate my Jellies, to give them a bit of individuality whilst they perch on my feet. It is really easy and can be done using any bits and bobs of pretty things you have laying around. 
What you need
Bits of lace, Trim, Stickers or Flowers
Glue Gun
Jelly Shoes

Step One
Place flowers or stickers in place at the front of the shoe. Once you are happy with the placing, glue them on.

Step Two
Measure the trimming down the center of the shoe and cut to size.Then simply glue into place.

Step Three
Cut trimming evenly into two strips. Wrap around the center, underneath the strap and make a bow. Try and make sure it's even on both sides. 

Step Four
That's about it, oh so simple :) Now style with your favourite Spring outfit and enjoy the sun in your jazzy jellies.

I hope you liked this little DIY, would love to know what you think.If any of you decide to do the same to your Jellies then link me with your own creations below.
