You know, despite all of the lovingly taken photographs I share with you from eventful trips out and about, more often than not I spend my days doing quite the opposite. Rather than adventuring out, I really would prefer a duvet day with Rich, whilst Fleur and Ludo are curled up at our feet and various detective comedy box sets waiting to be watched. I’m quite the home bunny really; nights in over nights out, any time. So when the past weekend was quintessentially British and generally wet and rainy, concerned that I couldn’t take any photographs for the following week, I thought to myself, it’s probably about time I show you myself at home. If you’re anything like me, too, you love a good nose in to someone’s home environment! So here is my bedroom, in all it’s shabby chic glory.
The best part of being at home, is that it’s warm enough to put on my favourite dress without having to cover it up with a jumper or cardigan. This khaki number has the most delicate bow detailing; I’ve been wearing it over and over. I do believe it’s still available to buy over at In Love with Fashion, so if you’re looking for a party frock, I couldn’t recommend this more. It also happens to match my divine emerald green ring and my vintage green pendant.
I thought too, that I could show you a little peek of some new bits and pieces I’ve collected over the past month. My darling metallic t-bar shoes have turned in to my trusty footwear choice. Chic doesn’t normally mean comfortable but in this case, boy does it. I’ve umm’d and aahh’d about how to show you my gorgeous lingerie set (obviously a no-no for outfit photo’s, ha) so I settled on using this as the perfect opportunity. The set is a longline shape; so there’s such a wonderfully vintage feel to it. It’s a real struggle to find vintage inspired underwear on the high street, I can rest assured now that Playful Promises will be there to fulfil my underwear needs from now on! Oh and my stylish collection of classic books. You see, I don’t tend to get hooked on to the seasonal trends that come and go, but I certainly do appreciate the iconic styles of Chanel and McQueen. As a lover of times gone by, the 1930s fashion book is a dream, and a thrift-ette wannabe, you can now find me hunched over the DIY book, optimistically trying my hand at being creative. I consider them must-reads, a perfect gift idea, perhaps?
Now, that photograph of my teapot is giving me earl grey shaped cravings. I’m off for a cuppa! 😉
