What I have been wearing into Autumn...

8 Sep 2020

 


Hello everyone,

I am so happy that we are finally heading into some of my favourite months of the year. Autumn is one of my favourite times of year, not only because its my birthday but because I just love the cosy atmosphere, the hot chocolates and the fact that its candle season. And of course I love autumn fashion, because its still not too cold. 

I have been pinning photos on Pinterest boards, and saving lots of fashion posts on Instagram to autumn outfit ideas and I am loving all the new trends that are appearing. I am absolutely loving the neutral tones and colours and of course whites and nudes. I feel like I am going to be spending the majority of autumn in Zara as they have the most perfect neutral basic pieces. 

I have also found so many pieces I already had in my wardrobe that I had loved wearing last year that I know I will love wearing this year too. Including this Femme luxe white shirt that I hadn't actually worn before, (here is the link to a similar one as I couldn't find the femme luxe link)but thought it would look perfect with some chunky trainers and my Abbott Lyon nude bag.

Another neutral outfit I have been loving recently is my Pleated cropped culottes with a white top and either chunky trainers or my white slider sandals. I feel like this colour looks so nice with white and can honestly go with any colour too. 

I can't wait to start wearing more and more autumnal outfits and seeing what is out there to wear. I have seen so much inspiration from instagram and Pinterest and I can't wait to try out all the new trends. 





What will you be wearing this Autumn?

6 Places to visit in The Cotswolds...

17 Aug 2020


 Hello everyone,

Because of having the most gorgeous 2 weeks of non stop sunshine here in Cheltenham, I thought I would share with you the best places to visit in the Cotswolds. I have lived in the Cotswolds all my life and its safe to say its one of the most beautiful places ever and I honestly feel so happy to be such a short drive away from these lovely places. So here are some of my favourite places to visit in the cotswolds. 


1. Bourton on the Water, Gloucestershire 


Bourton on the Water has to be one of my favourite places in the cotswolds, because t reminds me so much of my childhood and spending so many lovely days there in the summer. This little Cotswold village is absolutely beautiful and has so much to offer, with the beautiful , but extremely cold, river running through the entire village! So on a hot day, this is a lovely place to come for a picnic and be able to paddle your feet in the water. There is also so many lovely pubs and places to eat, tea rooms, ice cream parlours and cute little trinket shops to wonder around. it is honestly such a beautiful cotswold village and one of my favourites that I highly recommend visiting. 


2. The Real Flower Petal Confetti fields, Wick

The flower confetti field in Wick are just one place you have to visit during the week that it is open. There are just fields of beautiful flowers and I believe this year they also had a sunflower field too. It costs around £5 per entry and you can spend the day walking around the confetti fields and I must say this is one place that is just wonderful for instagram photos. 


3. Broadway, Gloucestershire 

Broadway is another of my favourite little villages in the cotswolds and actually only about 20 minutes from my home. Again there are so many beautiful cotswold stone homes and pubs and tea rooms so the perfect place to get yourself a classic afternoon tea. I also highly recommend the ice cream too, there is often a man at a cute little pink and white ice cream stand selling scoop ice cream and then the little tea room that sells whip ice creams for just £2 with so many amazing toppings. Again its a beautiful place for instagram shots and the broadway tower is a lovely place to go and have a picnic in the sunshine. 


4. Cotswold Lavender 

Cotswold lavender is another amazing Instagram spot, a little like The confetti fields, this is a lovely place to wonder around and take in the beautiful scenery. Fields full of lavender plants and flowers and is honestly beautiful. Last year you could actually take a little picnic and spend the day there however this year I believe due to cover that the rules may have been a little different. Unfortunately the lavender has been harvested now but if you get the chance to go next year I would highly recommend. 


5. Pitville Park, Cheltenham 

Another place really close to home is Pitville park in Cheltenham. This place is the perfect picnic spot for the summer and also a lovely place to get an ice cream and take the doggies for a walk. There are three cafes to chose from that do provide outdoor seating for a spot of lunch and the park is entered around pitville lake which is beautiful. You can also pay I believe It is £7 to ride a boat on the lake which is just the most perfect summer afternoon activity. This place is one of my favourite places to go to catch up with friends in the summer.


6. Gloucestershire Docks


Gloucestershire docks is one place that I really need to start visiting more. Me and Sam actually went on the ice rink back in the winter and its actually such a lovely part of Gloucester. There are so many lovely restaurants and shops within the outlet centre. Myself, mum and same mum Ali actually took a trip down their last Friday and had the most lovely girly afternoon. We went to Settebello Docks restaurant for a HUGE pornstar martini and some bruschetta which was incredible. We then went to their cafe and had a coffee and some Italian cakes too which were also so nice and the coffee may just be on of the best coffee I have ever had. 



I really hope you enjoyed this little cotswold guide and do let me know if you visit and what you think. Also if you have any more cotswolds requests, do leave it in the comments as I would love to visit some new places.
