Keeping it real by including my wheely bin in the shots! I’ve been working some more in the garden timing it in between the downpours. Today is glorious and we can fully enjoy the delights of a tidy garden. This is an old safari dress by Oasis, another High Street treasure that comes out every Summer. Continue reading
I was very good and didn’t wear any jeans since that last outfit but the weather pushed me back into them! Briefly.

Gap 1969 indigo real straight, Zara Girls red gingham shirt, H&M navy knit jacket also here, Sam Edelman boots, vintage Gucci belt, Oasis silk neckerchief and Hermès Kelly Sport also here and here.
