I have been quite busy this weekend and have only just sat down and stopped. I am a bugger for cramming so much into my life that I often forget I do need some down time… and more importantly to give myself time to relax.
I absolutely love flowers, and gardening is on my next checklist of things I must learn. I know that my favourite flowers are peonies and that I love any David Austen Roses, but I wouldn’t know where to start with creating my own. I was invited to attend the Chelsea Flower Show this year but unfortunately due to work I can’t attend, I’m truly gutted because it’s the one event I have never had a chance to get to. When I flicked through the images from previous years shows it really made me realise how great it is to have a garden and be outdoors.
I currently don’t have a garden but hopefully that will all change soon, so I often visit my local town park, go on country walks or generally try be outside. The other day my boyfriend and I decided we would venture for a tea trip and go for a walk, all via some colourful outdoor scenery.
What I’m Wearing:
Coat – F&F Trench Coat
Jumper – Topshop Pink Knitted Mix Stitch Jumper – £36.00
Jeans – Topshop
Shoes – Topshop Hatti Peep Toe Cut Out Shoes – £35.00
Bag – Nica Vanessa Shoulder Bag – £69.00
Scarf * – Laura Orchant Sunset Fireworks Silk Scarf – £100-£155
As you can see my outfit is quite simple yet colourful and the main focal point is my scarf. I’m wearing a gorgeous Laura Orchant scarf, a designer that has just returned from Who’s
Next in Paris and Pure in London with rave reviews from international
buyers and key fashion press.
Laura Orchant initially hand
sketches the design and then digitally manipulates the drawing into an
explosion of bright colours and fractal patterns.A lot of the 24 year old, Manchester born designers inspiration comes from nature, animals or the woman’s form, this is then printed
onto luxurious silk or viscous in various sizes. The scarves range from £80-£150.
I am a huge fan of
scarves which you will have noticed from my previous posts, but this
one is my must have one at the moment. It really makes a very average outfit come to life, especially with subtle hints of colour through the other garments.
Do you wear scarves in the spring or summer?
I’m off to Barcelona this week with work and to be quite honest I’m not looking forward to packing! I’m going to be indoors most of the time and will be doing long days. Anyways I’ll no doubt tell you all about my adventures…plus I’ve still got lots to tell you about my other adventures this weekend!
Watch this space!
