Mama Kelly, Amsterdam

Dress - Missguided

Between our visits to Bath and Amsterdam, my boyfriend and I celebrated our one year anniversary, so instead of doing presents we decided to book a nice meal out in Amsterdam during our stay. I'm not going to lie, I already knew that I wanted to visit Mama Kelly. After seeing it's amazing pink interior on a handful of Instagram accounts, I knew that it was the place for me...maybe not my boyfriend so much, but he could enjoy the food!

A Weekend in Bath

A couple of weeks ago my boyfriend and I headed to the city of Bath in Somerset for the weekend, after years of really wanting to visit! It's one of those places that feels like it's not in the UK, mainly because it's just so different from any other city I've been to! The architecture is just something else and I loved being able to visit all the spots I'd seen only in photos and movies.

18 Things I'm Excited For This Summer

Dress - C/O St Frock | Shoes - Dune London

I don't know about you guys, but in the Summer I feel like I get so much more done. Not only in terms of blogging and work related things, but just generally when it comes to doing exciting stuff! Last Summer was one of the busiest I've ever had and I feel like I really got to experience it, rather than just sitting at home like I normally do in the colder months.

Bridesmaid Styling with House of Fraser

Top - C/O House of Fraser | Skirt - C/O House of Fraser

Tis the season know what I'm talking, not Christmas silly! Wedding season! One of my favourites, don't you know! 

Now, personally I am a huge fan of weddings, always have been. Whenever I get invited to one, even if it's just for the evening, I'm ridiculously excited. Partially because I can't wait to see what the happy couple have done for their big day, but mainly because I get to dress up. And, if you're a bridesmaid it's even more special, of course! 

There's nothing like being chosen as one of the bride's special girls and being able to put on a gorgeous dress for the day that you might not be able to wear any other time. But it can often be a challenge if you're a bridesmaid (or a bride!) and you're unsure of how to style up a dress that's essentially been chosen for you. So I was very excited when the lovely people at House of Fraser got in contact and challenged me to style up a beautiful bridesmaid's dress from their collection.

House of Fraser is basically my go-to location for anything occasion related, especially since they have a huge variety of brands to choose from, so there really is something for everyone. It's also the place to shop for bridesmaid's dresses, and I often find myself browsing the website imagining what I would choose if I were getting married! 

I chose this gorgeous top and skirt combination from Coast after absolutely falling in love with the blush pink tones and the floaty tulle ribbon that adorns the top. Together, they make the ultimate bridesmaid's outfit - elegant, classy and timeless. As you can imagine, the outfit is gorgeous quality and I just feel amazing sashaying around in the skirt. The movement in it is truly beautiful, as I'm sure you can tell from the pictures! I also love that the skirt can be dressed down after the wedding, perhaps with a black roll neck jumper for an Audrey-esque look. 

I chose to wear the top strapless, but it does come with detachable straps for those who aren't as keen on the whole strapless vibe. The tulle ribbon can be tied multiple ways which will give a lovely variation if all of the bridesmaids are in the same dress. 

As for accessories, I went with a classic pair of nude strappy shoes (you can't really go wrong!) and dainty silver accessories including these gorgeous leaf earrings that just add a little something extra. All finished off with a sparkly clip for the hair! As a bridesmaid, I would want to feel confident and pretty on the day, but I wouldn't want to wear anything too outrageous and distract from the bride! 

I'm pretty much in love with this look and now I'm just wishing that I was actually a bridesmaid! One day! 

Let me know what you think of my take on a bridesmaid look and if you've got any weddings coming up! x

Wisteria Hysteria

Dress - C/O Tobi | Shoes - River Island | Bag - C/O Cambridge Satchel Co.

After managing to miss wisteria season entirely last year, I have been making up for it by visiting all of the iconic London wisteria spots. I know it's basically the most blogger cliche plant in the world now, but you can't deny how flipping gorgeous this stuff is! It also smells pretty darn good as well, somebody get me a perfume of this, stat!
