BLUE TARTAN


I'm exhausted!

This last week has honestly killed me. I was full of plans to post my London Fashion Week activities but I just can't get my brain into gear- I want to give them the attention they deserve but they will be posting from this weekend pinky promise.

What I can say is I had a BLAST! Every LFW has topped the last, I've made a ton of  new friends (which makes me want to move to London) and came back full of inspiration. I can't wait to share the Sophia Webster presentation!!

But tonight is 100% for left over wedding cake (as I didn't have time to eat it at my sisters wedding), squash and trying to stay awake until after 10pm. Again I feel like I'm dying post wedding.

I know people say you can't understand the work that goes into a wedding until you get married, try planning a wedding for 2 years and its not even yours! (Or if you're feeling ambitious help plan two: I'm glad both of my sisters are married now married.) All the stress with non of the fun, and no one out of the wedding party appreciates the work you put in.

I'm VERY close to both my sisters but my twin needed me there for EVERYTHING (I keep her calm and rational), in fact the only thing I didn't "plan" was the food, which ended up with only one vegetarian option in the evening (a mozzarella, tomato and avocado skewer). I honestly don't think they would have got married without me. Especially as we arrived early at the venue and I ran around organising everything (plus cleaning up afterwards), took her to the toilet 50 times and put up her dress like 10 times where it kept undoing.

FYI I am available to hire as a planner- fees are negotiable ;)








Skirt: Boohoo
Tee: Killstar
Cardigan: Vintage
Bag: Primark
Boots: Buffalo
Necklace: eBay


This look is another simple outfit I've been throwing on with my much loved Killstar moon tee, vintage (and possibly works a most cosy) cardigan and buffalo boots.

The skirt is a few weeks old but so easy to wear- I'm so happy tartan is "in" as I've been looking for the perfect tartan essentials lately and after seeing Laura (from a Forte for Fashion) in her awesome blue kilt I knew I wanted one in blue too. My bright blue number from Boohoo is no longer for sale but Laura bought hers from George (got to love a good supermarket bargain, Sainsburys is the biggest temptation for me), or there's also this one from New Look and this from Missguided.
