Knightsbridge in Full Bloom.

Afternoon guys, 

I'm sorry everyone for the lack of blog posts, with the World Cup starting and work being very busy my evenings have been full of impromptu naps and the other half screaming at the TV. FUN!

 I absolutely love this outfit post. This Topshop dress has become one of my go to dresses since buying it. What's even cooler is I bought mine before Alexa Chung was seen in it. Mwahaha. I've also had some amazing comments about my denim jacket. I was very lucky with this buy. I bought this denim jacket from A.P.C when I was in paris with my dad in 2012. It's still practically like new, and I wear it all year round. I have to say investing in good denim isn't just a myth made up by bloggers and stylist pushed to promote denim brands. Nope. If you get a decent jacket you'll enjoy it for a long long time. I would love to get this length denim jacket in a black. 

Alfonso enjoyed the day out too. I never thought I would say this but I would love to get another one of the Fendi Bag Monsters. They are so cute and have such character. Currently Harrods have some limited edition ones to celebrate a Fendi fun fare popup in the store. 

Yep, I wore my favourite sunnies the Dior SoReal. I cannot get enough of these. I love them.

We spent the morning at the V&A The Italian Fashion exhibition. It was a lovely day so we decided to walk to Harrods (where we had lunch at the  Prada Marchesi pop up restaurant which accompanied the Prada exhibition in store) and explore the gorgeous streets of Knightsbridge. It is 100% my dream to move to the area, specifically in one of the coloured houses please. Imagine the daily outfit pics.

The black and fuchsia Chanel ballerinas are just amazing. Bought in the Chanel sale in January, I can't believe how much wear I've had out of these. They are the perfect quirky black shoes, to jazz any outfit up. My addiction to Chanel ballerinas will never end. 

The heart Chanel necklace, yep I've featured this before but I really think it is my favourite necklace. It's so romantic and cute. I've found recently that a lot of people have been asking about it. I always feel guilty telling people I bought this in 2011 but my advise to people is to always check out Chanel costume jewellery for the quirkier pieces that will sit well in the future. 

Oh god, I seriously have to say, my Chanel backpack is one of my favourite buys this year. I have had amazing use out of this. Yep it is laced in controversy regarding the price etc, but I feel like a lot of people are quick to judge people for spending 2k on a handbag yet they have their own vices. I love it, I use it, and it is so comfortable.

Spring Summer Sale Fever.

Evening everyone,

Oh wow, how amazing has the weather in the UK been this week? Honestly it is so refreshing to put on a pair of shorts, a top and some sandals rather than jeans and boots! My sandals are rejoicing. Yesterday after work was spent going for a run and walk with my man and today we spent after work working on some blog photos and eating ice-cream in a lovely garden in Mayfair.

Today was a very important day for the fashion bunnies out there…The sales have officially begun! Today Mulberry and Matches launched their sales. Next week will see Net-A-Porter and Selfridges launch their online and in store sales too. With that said I can happily admit I am already falling into a rabbit hole of overspending. As much as I seem like a shopaholic (which I am) I do know my boundaries, I know which brands go into sale and have a good eye for knowing if it will sell pre sale season. My key tip for sale preparation is to steer clear of buying things full price at the end of May/ start of June. Unless you know it is a sell out item wait! 

One sale I do like to wait for even when the products are launched is Mulberry. OK so their price mark has cheated us all, but at least the sale can get it back to a somewhat reasonable price. Since it's launch, I have had my eyes on the gloriously beautiful Suffolk and Bayswater Shoulder in Bluebell Blue. Sigh.

I have succumbed to the Bluebell bayswater. I really think It goes with my current bag aesthetic- medium bag, good compartments and and shapely. It truly has a modern Silhouette. I cannot wait to post photos of the bag soon. 

I also bought myself this cute hat. I find it hard to find cute and long lasting straw hat for the summer and festivals. This caught my eye online this morning pre heading into the store. The fit is perfect and it is so sturdy. I love hats!

Mulberry wasn't my only victim in my shopping crusade today. I finally got myself a pair of Toga Pulla shoes!!! As a lot of people know, first cut sale items on most website can't always fulfil your bargain needs. So you put it in your basket and wait, stare and hope it gets reduced further. This is something I do with Matches and NAP. I love a bargain! However…this was one I was hesitant about. These boots are so awesome, Toga shoes in general are awesome. My first choice in my size sold out which made me order my second choice.

I feel the second choice are so much better for what use I can get out of them as I know i will be taking these to Paris in the Summer for the Rock En Seine festival. They can be worn with socks or bare feet! Perfect for a festival! 

I already feel myself slipping into a very very expensive month so I am gonna try and resist looking. I know however my need and lust are 2 separate things so like the Christmas sales I will 100% think about my sale purchases.  

Here are some more of my hot sale picks:

I would love to hear what you guys are snapping up in the sales!
