Last weekend was such a whirlwind! It’s a good thing I stayed in to relax on Friday evening because I was barely saw my house for the rest of it. I was up early on Saturday and set off for Bloomsbury to meet my new friend Hannah and head out on a very unusual tour of London (I’ll tell you all about it on Friday!) Afterwards it was time for veggie fish and chips near Chancery Lane before jetting back to east London. I met up with Jayne and we whizzed around Broadway Market picking up snacks, before settling in at her flat for a slumber party. We spent the evening nibbling, plotting adventures, laughing until our faces hurt, drinking copious amounts of champagne, and dancing until the wee hours of the morning.
I slept in and woke up feeling a weeny bit delicate, but we managed to pull ourselves out of bed and head out for breakfast beside the lake at Pavilion Cafe. After a mad dash home to get showered and changed, I took the train to meet Matthew in Richmond. It was a gloriously sunny day and we spent the afternoon making friends with the neighbourhood’s famous herd of deer, nursing pints while chatting at a pub by the river, and grabbing dinner before heading back to his place and putting our feet up (finally!)
To put together an outfit that would take me through this busy Saturday and well into Sunday, I paired my gorgeous She & Reverie cardigan with a simple lace dress and my new Marc Jacobs bracelet, and added my vintage locket, fuschia tights, and sparkly ears for a look that’s decidedly me. Paired with cute flats for frolicking all over the place, I managed to stay comfy and stylish. Take a look…
I’m wearing the Chantilly Cardigan c/o She and Reverie, thrifted vintage black lace dress (no label), Marc Jacobs bangle c/o Harvey Nichols, vintage locket, cat ears c/o Crown and Glory, pink tights from H&M, and Glamtique Roadshoe Flats from ModCloth.
When Quinne contacted me about her company She and Reverie, I instantly fell in love. Each of her exquisite, feminine designs is carefully crafted in her Brooklyn studio and completed with beautiful details - like the velvet bow adorned with an engraved pendant and the mismatched rhinestone button on this cardigan. Every piece is truly special. Plus she described herself as “a riot-grrl-entrepreneur with a hyper-feminine aesthetic,” so I knew I’d found a soul sister! As a special treat, Quinne has added a $20 flat rate shipping option for international customers and using the discount code “medusa” gets you 15% off any order between now and the end of the month.
I loved how the contrasting lace of the cardigan’s lining matched so well with the lace of my dress. It really is the little things that pulls an outfit together, isn’t it?
What adventures did you go on last week? And what fabulous things did you wear? Tell me everything!
P.S. More than half of the tickets for our Full Moon Urban Retreat sold out in less than 72 hours! I’m blown away by the messages I’m receiving from women who are saying this is exactly what they need and who are stepping up, investing in themselves, and making time to learn, love, and laugh together. I’m truly humbled by the amount of support we’re receiving and feel truly honoured to be organising this event with Jayne. If you’re interested in attending, I hope you’ll book your place soon, as I think it’s going to sell out very quickly.
