Well on this occasion I really feel like the images speak for themselves…
|Dress, Silvian Heach. Earrings, Gogo Philip. Bracelet, gift. Ring, vintage. Watch, Michael Kors. Shoes, Zara.|
Scuba and florals: these two trends that I didn’t think I would ever embrace have eventually become a big part of my wardrobe. So it’s no surprise that when these two forces were joined they produced a piece that spoke right to me.
To be honest, I don’t even want to talk about my dress – it’s awesome, by Silvian Heach and was bought at Tonic – as the amazing background is too gorgeous not to bang on about. Firstly, a well?! How adorable is that?
Back to the fashion – I stuck to the rule of when wearing fancy earrings, one must keep the rest of their jewellery simple. The (Gucci-esque?) door knockers are from one of my favourite jewellery brands, Gogo Philip, which I got what feels like an eternity ago but have been wearing them much more in the past year than when I first got them. I think the ring is a vintage find (but have no recollection as to when or where I got it) and the super cute daisy necklace was bought at some fair that happened in Kensington Olympia either last year or early this year, but I can’t remember the brand – shame on me!
The bracelet was a gift from some relatives – I absolutely love it! It’s so simple yet shiny and lady-like, I don’t think I could ever tire of it.
How did I come across such ideal surroundings, you wonder? Last month I went up north to visit a friend of mine who lives in Chester, Chesire. She is lucky to live in what seems to be the middle of nowhere – a beautiful array of farms and fields that couldn’t look and feel more blissful. Indeed, what a contrast to the bustle and pollution of London.
Now isn’t this country chic at its very best? I am not blowing my own trumpet here, I naturally mean the backdrop. This magical door is the entrance to my friend’s idyllic home, and a shout-out has to go to that ram door knocker (unlike my earrings) – it’s divine.
My friend’s adorable little dog loves the settings as much as I do!
So there you have it! Scuba and the countryside – it sort of works, doesn’t it?
