Ticket to Saint Tropez?

Who else is obsessed with the French Riviera style? I love the dark blues, stripy off the shoulder dresses, straw hats, and big sunglasses. The style is sophisticated and effortless. I have collated a few things from the high street to give you an idea. You don’t really need to get a ticket to Saint Tropez but you can at least look french chic wherever you are.

Sunny mornings

This is my contribution to the polka dot trend, this dressing gown from H&M home. I didn’t anticipate purchasing one when I went in for a browse but it feels incredibly soft I had to have it.

Trend; Basket Bags

 


The weather was gorgeous in London today – the sunshine came!
After purchasing a straw basket bag today, I am a little obsessed with this summer trend. I have put together a few I have seen online, they are all divine for this warm weather and it’s hard to dislike them. Take it to the park, supermarket or a nice brunch with the girls in the sunshine, a versatile look for Spring/Summer.

The heat cometh

So it’s true, the sunshine IS here, I found this straw bag in Primark, I have had my eye to purchase one similar. Other retailers are selling it at such a higher price, it made sense to get it once I saw it, at a bargain price of £8 and the fact it’s scorching in London for a few days it’s getting an outing.

Silly purchases

Arrgh does anyone else have the odd silly purchase and kick themselves or is it just me?
I bought these Mango platform sandals a size up, there is a method to this madness, I tried the size 5 in the shop and it looked amazing, but I thought they were a little tight. I went home and looked at them online because I couldn’t stop thinking about them. I decided to get the 6  – what could go wrong? they have a buckle so I can tighten them up. They arrived, hurray they fit well and look fantastic, I walk around my flat in them for a bit – I am happy. I am winning!

So a few days have passed and I have decided today is the day and I will venture out in them. I walk for about 10 mins and DISASTER! my toes keep popping under the top strap meaning my toe is sticking out underneath and it bloody hurts. Hit me with a feather –  I have to wear these all day. I get home, they are scuffed from a days walking which means I CAN’T RETURN THEM LOOKING LIKE THIS! they go back in the box, I don’t think I have worn them out again – BUGGER THAT. So ladies and Gentlemen there is exhibit A for a perfect example of a silly purchase.

They are currently on the Vinted App for sale – sad face.

Eagerly awaiting spring

I walked past this tree today and had to take a snap. Very beautiful against the greens. Please may I have one in my bedroom?

With an umbrella, raincoat and knitwear still attached to me from December I think we can all say we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of spring.
