Tribal meets Chanel

Can you ever have too many jackets? Jackets are my weakness at the moment, its so easy to put a jacket over an outfit and instantly give the look a completely different feel.
I wore my blue Chanel bag with this outfit, I don't use it as often as I should as it does actually go with more than you would think. I love that the bag is in the classic Chanel shape but the colour and fabric make it quite unusual.
 I am definitely a Gold jewellery girl, I think it looks better against my skin, and I love gold bangles! The bangle with the turquoise triangle is from American Apparel, they had them in so many colours I got a yellow one too.

I very rarely don't have my hair down, but recently I 've been doing side plaits. I love the texture and messiness of the fish plait. Tip: Once you've created the plait, pull it apart slightly for a messy look.

I hope you like.

Introducing Daisy...with neon hints

Seeing as the summer hasn't made an appearance this year, I decided to brighten up my day with this amazing Neon jacket. I got it on a recent trip to Washington DC from BCBGMAXAZRIA. I love it, you can literally throw it over anything. Teamed with a pair of black skinny's for a cocktail night with the girls or over a pencil dress for a wedding, it really adds a pop to any outfit. 
After 4 years I'm still completely in love with my Chanel handbag. Again it goes with everything and because of the size can easily be used for day or night. This bag is one of my absolute favourite pieces.
You can't really appreciate the beauty of these shoes in the photographs, the heels are pyramid shaped (if you can imagine that). I love the look with skinny jeans but have to admit that they are not particularly comfortable, so they do only make it out of the shoe cupboard occasionally.
This J.Crew necklace was also a purchase from my trip to Washington DC. I love the mix of the blue top with the yellow. You may see this again as I'm wearing it with everything at the moment.
Last but not least is my little dog, Daisy. She was a rescue so I'm not entirely sure what breed/mix she is but I know there is some miniature Daschund in her. She goes everywhere with me (not in my handbag) and she really is the sweetest little thing. 

I hope you enjoyed reading

Preppy vs Pattern

Going to an exciting meeting (all will be revealed soon), I teamed the white shirt and smart blazer with these geometric jeans for a smart/fun look.

I found this vintage CHANEL ring in an antique shop in Suffolk. The shop had all kinds of bits and bobs: old plates, vintage cards, coins, paintings, after a while of rummaging (much to Adams annoyance) I came across this, and I love it!

I hope you like... x

It's taken a while.

Well I set this blog up a while ago and its taken me sometime to pluck up the courage to start. But here it is, I’m finally ready. I’m going to be writing about my life. I live on  a farm with 2 dogs, 3 pygmy goats and my boyfriend, Adam. I love our home and am always looking for unusual furniture or decorative bits and pieces, antique fairs are my passion! I also love fashion and will be showing you my personal style. I hope you like…
