Spring is starting to peek it’s head about and I’m desperately trying to will the warm weather into existence. I’m so ready for rosé on the patio! And honestly spring and summer outfits.

Outfit: Sliding Into Spring


I’m currently being harassed by one very twacky border collie because the sun is out and she knows exactly what that means. Play time. She is one of the most intelligent creatures I’ve ever met, and sometimes that can be the most annoying thing about her. Because she really does know that sunshine means we will be outside.

Warby Parker Spring Sunglasses: Quintessentials Collection

warby parker sunglasses collectionBefore I had LASIK done, Warby Parker was where I went to order frames.

You’re already feeling terrible and then add a long list of antibiotic side effects to make you feel even worse.

I’m not one for mainstream jewelry, it’s not that I don’t like it, there are some delicate pieces that I occasionally find that I like, but I really love pieces that stand out and say something about me. Even my engagement ring isn’t “standard”, as I told my husband I didn’t want your standard engagement ring.

Would you believe I’m already trying to plot my way back to the UK? Any excuse to get me over there, I’ll jump on it. My husband wants to go to Spain, I do too obviously, but I want to pop over in the UK on the way back if that happens. I absolutely love the UK.

Velvet Blazer

I’ve always wanted to wear blazers, but every time I put one on and look in the mirror, it just doesn’t quite feel right. Maybe it just feels too formal or too preppy, but every time I’ve bought one, it’s ended up in the donation bin or given to a friend.
