I have delved into the comfortable pool of casual dressing and I am tempted to never surface. In other news, I am going on holiday with someone lovely on Friday and have been informed the weather is rather warm and to wear "summery" clothing.
Primark, here we come.
I promise I'll get back to frequent, regular blogging soon!

Until then, have some nice things:

summertime sadness




top - Primark
jeans - Primark
necklace - H&M
shoes - Dorothy Perkins
bag - vintage






I must apologise for having not posted in a while, I have been crazily busy surprisingly enough! We've actually had the pleasure of an Italian student staying with us to improve her English, whom we actually know through my dad doing an exchange with their family when he was about 18. So naturally, we've taken her to different places, attempting to show her England in it's best light. This week I've also been lucky enough to do some extra work on a film that's been actually being filmed in the local area which has been brilliant. Thankfully, the weather has been kind to us and I even have sunburn, ridiculously enough.

Anyway, here are some pretty things :)



The Pennysylvania collection at Topshop is beautiful













Also, I highly recommend a listen to this little band I stumbled upon at Latitude.

festivals are a nice way to spend summer




Had such a lovely weekend at Latitude with even lovelier people. Managed to see some amazing people including White Lies, Bon Iver, Lana Del Rey, Elbow, Metromony, Smoke Fairies, Rich Hall, Jack Dee, Doc Brown and School of Comedy. Fortunately and surprisingly, it only really rained on the first evening, while we were huddled in our tent, so for the remainder of the time, we managed to remain pretty dry. As much as I would have loved to go home every night to a lovely warm shower and nice duvet, I would definitely go back and was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed the whole ~festival~ experience. 

Here are a selection of my favourite lookbook looks over the past week or so:

Literally cannot wait for this week to end and praying for rain to hold off for a while so we won't drown at Latitude. 

A little inspiration below, all c/o of weheartit and tumblr:

Also, I just have to mention, how gorgeous does Daphnee Groeneveld look in the Dior Addict advert?
I have to keep reminding myself dying my hair blonde will not make me look like her. Unfortunately.
