a sunny saturday in spring.

Today has been really sunny and instead of going out and basking in Spring air, I spent a lot of the day in my room, in the sun, reading 'The Help'. Such an amazing book. Anyway, I really like this outfit and knew I had to share it with you all! My outfit posts are few and far between but I am trying to mix up my content a bit - you know, keep you all interested. Whilst getting dressed I kept wondering whether it was season appropriate? it definitely has an Autumnal vibe but the material and print of the dress reminds me a lot of an African Summer. The colours are vibrant, my hair is beach-y and I am wearing Floral perfume. That counts, right? If I am honest, I love wearing trends, feeling modern and up to date but I also believe in wearing what you like and feel comfortable in. Today wasn't warm, it may have been 14 degrees so the leggings and jacket were essential! It was sunny however and I started to wish I had taken my sunnies out with me!

Full length outfit; Leggings - Evans, Dress - Newlook

Earrings and nail varnish - Topshop

Leather Jacket - Newlook

Brogues - Evans

Satchel - Primark


Orange bracelet - Newlook, other bracelets - Unknown
After taking some photos in my garden, we then headed to a small Sussex village called Alfriston. I bought some amazing cutlery for University (see below) and also purchased some rosy apples from the village sweet shop. I love going to little villages here in England, especially down in Sussex where I live. Everything is so authentic and it feels like stepping straight back into the 1930's. 
My new cutlery, rosy apples and the book I am currently reading - 'The Help'
I hope you are all having a great weekend!
Please let me know your thoughts on this outfit or on the book I'm reading. I am always up for discussing books!!

I love this whole look! The print is great, the earrings are perfect with it, the jacket is adding the perfect amount of edge, and the shoes are adorable. And your hair is making me miss my longer hair (only I could never get mine to look that good!).
