Packing, Jubilee snippets and more Lowie lovin’

I’m calling this a 3-in-1 post, as I’ve lots to tell in one go. Firstly, I’m off to Spain today! As much as it pains me to wave goodbye to the shockingly good weather we’ve been having in London, I’m looking forward to spending time in my hometown with the fam and friends (I’ve heard it’s going to be raining over there though!). Which also means that sadly I won’t be blogging for a week – fear not though, my mom will be having a busy week being my personal photographer. So here’s a sneak preview of what you’ll be seeing when I get back…

Yep, I’m taking light tops in all shapes, colours and sizes (because it will be hot even if it rains), going very easy on the bottoms (in fact I’ve ultimately decided not to take the black skirt with the pearl details on the sides), letting loose with jewellery (it’s small after all and doesn’t take up much space) and bringing a go-with-everything cardigan – I promise the end results will be reasonably successful.

Moving on, I’ll be back just before the big Jubilee madness on June 5th (should I lock myself at home?). But forget the Queen, it’s really all about these fluffy creatures. Corgi is definitely having its 15 minutes of fame – is Tatler’s June cover to blame? Because many shops are having a Corgi frenzy…

Mulberry actually had this swanky mag cover in their window displays…

It was only natural that Selfridges’ super British window display would include cute Corgis – these are my favourite in terms of adorableness.

River Island is loving Corgis too, although these are slightly more minimalistic.

Ted Baker is quintessentially a very English brand, so it comes as no surprise that their recent window displays are all about Britain – their Corgis might not be 3D but that doesn’t stop them from being loud, proud and super cute. I also spotted 2D Corgis at French Connection (no photo, sorry).

Finally, if you’re up for all this Jubilee frenzy but prefer clothes over Corgis, I suggest you treat yourself to some Lowie this weekend and/or up until the 5th of June. One of my favourite brands (which I first talked about here), Lowie are offering 15% discount to Brit lovers – actually, no patriotism necessary, all you need to do is use the discount code JUBILEE at checkout to enjoy some very British and very lovely pieces. Here are some of my Lowie bits (and the collection might just have to grow a little more…).

Black knitted shorts, which I’m in love with mainly because of the adorable anchor-themed pocket on the back; brown leather belt, which is perfect because it goes with everything, black and white scarf with crochet bow, which makes me feel very chic every time I wear it; and black beanie hat, which I’ve probably worn every single day this past winter and has therefore been my saviour.

Sorry about the small image but no need to get your specs out as I’ve given you all the vital info – that’s all from me, I’m leaving the island and off to speak Spanish for a week. ¬°Adios!
