bringing style into bloom

At the weekend we took a little trip to explore the lovely Weston Park which just happens to be the first park in Sheffield. It wasn't a very warm day so I thought this floral blouse was perfect with its long sleeves. 

It was a blouse I had seen in River Island but didn't buy. I didn't mention I had seen it to Steve but he must know me very well as there it was all nicely wrapped up as part of my birthday present. 

It has a great versatility to it; perfect for all the seasons. I chose to wear it today with jeans I got for my birthday and my old faithful brogues. 

I apologise for the frizzy hair! Damp air never does it much good!

On a lovely day this would be a perfect place to sit and while away an afternoon with a picnic. Even though it was cold, there were lots of people walking round with ice creams like it was the done thing to do.

You can get married in the bandstand and I can definitely see the appeal. It has a real vintage feel and with good weather it would be magical. 

The park has been restored beautifully with gorgeous planting, quiet seating areas and a museum to wander around that is very hands on for children. Definitely a place I want to visit again when it is a bit warmer!

Enjoy the rest of your week lovelies.

an outfit for an autumn walk

Isn't Autumn a lovely time of year? The colours everywhere are so beautiful here at the moment. As it was such a lovely morning we decided to take a stroll through the botanical gardens; a pleasant place for a walk and a picnic (when it's not raining of course).

I am in love with Peter Pan collar dresses. I spotted this one and knew straightaway I had to have it. Do you ever get that feeling when you see something you like, you just know it will look fine! Well, that's how I felt about this dress! I have another dress very similar to this which you can see here.

I have been waiting all summer to wear this chunky cardigan. I bought it in the sale earlier in the year to wear on days like this, cold but bright. 

I also have an obsession with brogues, I love them. When I see them in a shop I stop a while and have a little drool! I am trying to collect a pair in every colour! 

The beautiful restored Victorian glasshouses you can see in the background houses plant collections from different regions around the world and is so worth a visit. We were lucky enough to see a wedding taking place here a few weeks ago. It was beautiful. 

A view looking down towards the fountain from outside the glasshouse. We had a lovely chat with an older couple while we were stood here as he was asking us what we were photographing. He showed us a lovely picture he had painted and obviously took real joy from it. That's the kind of place it is here, friendly, pleasant and easygoing.

We finished the day off with a Starbucks festive gingerbread latte and a cranberry and orange muffin. Buy one, get one free too! It won't be long before I'm back!

Lace love

Another day, another lace dress! As you will have seen in earlier posts, I have a real love of lace. Half of my wardrobe consists of different varieties of lace dresses. S will say to me 'haven't you got one like that already?' and my answer will always be 'this one is slightly different' (length, sleeves, colour etc.) I always tend to dress up my lace but I thought I would try something different today. 

This is a jacket that I normally wear during the spring and summer season, but as it was such a lovely day I thought 'hey, why not!' 

Say hello to my new Ted Baker bag! This was my gorgeous Valentine's Day present from S. I had been drooling over it in the shop thinking 'one day you will be mine.' What a lovely surprise it was when I opened up my present and there in all its glory was my lust love! This bag and I will never be parted!

Have you any other ideas how to wear lace?
