OOTD; Dreamy suede skirt& a huge elephant..

white blouse | vintage shop | £6.00
turquoise suede skirt | asos | £60.00
patent boots | topshop | £40.00
bag | dune | £35.00

Last weekend me and my boyfriend took a quick trip to a place called Fargo Village, it's kind of a independent/ vintage place that host's a whole heap of shops and food/drink places. Whilst we we there I bought a cute Dolly Parton t shirt (there's a cat on the top to, so that was a necessary buy of course..) as well as some bath bombs which are the shape of eggs and in a egg box!
The place also has a brewery which my boyfriend was obviously quite the fan of.. beer all round!
Some of the shops are even in old creates which I think is such a fun idea to do, I think there really is something for everyone there and some of the graffiti is so amazing (as you can see from this huge golden elephant in the outfit photos).

I am loving the whole suede trend for Autmn and seriously can't get over this zipper front skirt from asos, I spotted it and also had a 20% off code which made it even more of a must buy. I loved the colour and then the fit was just really nice, I've worn it so much already and don't plan on stopping anytime soon. 
Outfit repeater right here, I'm the first to admit it with this skirt!
Have you found anywhere a bit different recently or have any recommendations? 
Thanks, & I hope you're all well.

OOTD; Comic Books & Pastel Shops

dress | asos | £25.00
fluffy coat | topshop | £80ish
patent boots | topshop | £40.00
bag | dune | £35.00
 Last Friday night me and my boyfriend headed to a individual restaurant called The Drawing Board in Leamington Spa, the restaurant was very 'indie' with comic books all over the wall's and our bill came in a vintage Mr Men book, so cute! 
However this place was not your typical 'pizza and chips' indie restaurant, the food was amazing! & of a very very high standard.. 
I had 'corn fed' chicken with a kind of paisley mash.. very fancy I know.. (plus the food was so good we even stayed for desert).

I loved the place and the whole atmosphere.. sometimes it's nice to just head out for a meal or a drink etc.. everyone does love a date night after all.
Have you been anywhere abit differnt recently?
Let me know!
Hope you're all well.

OOTD; A Trip To Nottingham

sunglasses | miu miu
striped t shirt | asda | £8.00
faux leather skirt | zara | £26.00
bag | vivienne westwood
shoes | asos sale
Last Saturday me& my boyfriend headed to Nottingham for the day, we have only been once before which was for my birthday but we both really wanted to go again to visit a few places we didn't have time to on our first visit. We mainly spent the day shopping and wandering around, as well as having a bite to eat. I had looked online and came across a bar called Daskino which was a place to play ping pong whilst having a drink or two, we both thought it looked quite fun so headed there before making our way home. 
I'm so glad we stopped off at Daskino because it's honestly one of my favourite places I've ever been, it had the lot from coke float cocktails to a vintage style photo booth and even film quotes on a cinema style board as well as films projected onto the roof for you to watch. I hate to use the word 'cool' but it honestly was a place that I would call 'cool'. When ordering my cocktail I though it would just be your usual 'comes in a glass, gets you a bit drunk' style drink however when it arrived I was a bit shocked to see a kind of wooden board of 'ingredients' to make my own.. I had a dandelion and burdock with amaretto and vanilla ice cream, topped with cherries of course! 
 I think you could only describe this bar as very 'Instagram-able', anywy I would definitely go back, even if just to improve my (awful) ping pong playing skills.
I hope you're all well!

OOTD; Bardot Dress

dress | asos | £30ish
shoes | primark | £4.00
bag | vintage

This is my very last outfit post from my holiday, which means the sad realisation that all that holiday excitement is well and truly over. Autumn is most definitely on its way.. saying that I do love the autumn season mainly because of the clothing and been able to layer most of your wardrobe all at once.. but maybe that's just me and my over the top coat obsession!?

More about the outfit.. I bought this dress off ASOS just before heading to France, I really loved the floral pattern as it was quite muted with the hints of black making it not too summery but still just enough.. I'm also a huge fan of the bardot style shape too, I love how showing your shoulders can completely change the shape of a dress.

How do you feel about it being August already? 
The year is flying by if you ask me.. 
I hope you're all well.
