This weekend, I took a bit of time out of the hustle and bustle of Oxford, and visited my favourite little escape from the city – a hidden cemetary, where you feel like you’re miles away from everywhere. Some people might find hanging out in a graveyard a bit morbid, but I always find it extremely peaceful and reflective, especially here, with overgrown graves, birdsong, and dappled sunshine. The weather was so beautiful, so I thought I’d soak up the sun in something summery…
This little cream skater dress has a beautiful floaty skirt, which makes it feel really feminine and pretty – I also love the lace at the top. You’ve seen this sheer teal shirt before, because it makes a great throw-on cover-up for many summer dresses, giving you a bit of coverage without being too heavy for a bright day. I tied in the blue accent with a collar necklace and my new Crew wedges, which seriously make my legs look amazing, and then echoed the tan straps with a tan belt – I love the detailing on the belt. Very co-ordinated! Just as a side note, I always find belts are far too long when I wear them at my waist, so I’ve been experimenting with different styles of knotting them. I think it’s cute, and adds interest!
Have you ever seen anything as beautiful as the print on this satchel? I bought it at the weekend after several weeks of lusting after it – a bit of a birthday present to myself. It’s not the sturdiest thing ever, but it’s a great size, and is so pretty that I can’t stop staring at it.
