I made a card for my Sister's 19th Birthday last week, I wanted to keep it simple, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out :) I downloaded and copied the font from Juno as we're both super fans.

Fans of The City will recognise where the inspiration for the text inside came from ♥ Olivia Palermo!

Stupidly when I cut out the pic, I cut off the matching mickey mouse cycling shorts she was wearing with the tee!

My sis 16 years on, still sporting the top knot. She's going to kill me for posting a pic of her in her dressing gown. Sorry Sis.


Minnetonka 'Thunderbird' Moccasins have been on my shopping list for longer than I can remember and it has rained every day since these have arrived so I haven't even been able to wear them out of the house. Roll on Summer.

H&M + Sustainable Fabrics

I booked a trip to India (Mumbai and Goa) for May - little over 5 weeks away!! I've basically promised myself no shopping because I still have a HEAP of clothes from last Summer I wore once in Jamaica and didn't get to wear back in England where Summer was shortlived and pretty much over by August when I got home. However I've just seen H&M's Garden Collection, made from recycled polyester, organic cotton and other sustainable materials and I feel I may need to treat myself to one or two of these gorgeous pieces, in the name of doing my bit for the environment of course.

Can my Summer look like this?

90s Kid

Someone commented to say ' more outfit posts' but I must say I'm more comfortable behind the camera than in front if it!! However since I was dressing like a 90s extra from California Dreamin' last week, I thought it was worth a couple of pics.

Dungarees - vintage, crop top - Topshop, tights - H&M, wedges -, peace sign necklace - Vintage

I wanted to go for a House of Holland high side pony but I thought that might be overkill (another day though).

Soundtrack for this look:
