(Coat: Topshop, Jumper: Whistles, Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters, Playsuit: C/O Hedonia, Shoes: Charlotte Olympia, Bag: C/O Zandra Rhodes)

Taken on a hazy spring evening a few Saturdays back, when Spring first made it's debut- these photographs were snapped during an outing around Battersea (for a Tesco stop for popcorn and shortbread), during my latest stay with the lovely Jazmine and Rebecca. We found ourselves strolling past some beautiful homes, licked with sugar sweet pastel front doors and creamy white walls (of course stopping to observe that wall, too) and it felt somewhat obligatory to stop for some silly posing.

Additionally, it was lovely to finally branch into something a little more summery (yes, even if it meant teaming it with an over sized coat, jumper and a zillion deniers) and I was thrilled to finally take this gorgeous lace playsuit for a spin (psst it's now a mere twenty British pounds in the sale, which although seems a slight travesty as I love it so much- is worth every penny)! Plus, although I usually feel far more regal than necessary when wearing this coat with a beehive (that or like a poor mans Hepburn), it made for perfect dinner time attire at Jazmine's favourite local restaurant- not before an evening of giggling, dancing to Queen Bee, singing in the bath (courtesy of moi) and erm, waking up with a shortbread biscuit on my face (don't ask, really).

P.S I am working on putting together a beehive tutorial soon, so this crazy badass of a hairstyle will be made simple soon.


and here's what I wore...

  23. I absolutely love wearing playsuits under jumpers, it's always nice to have an extra layer underneath when it's cold but at the same time some pretty patterned shorts peaking out.
