Summer dreaming on a rare warm spring evening in my Motel playsuit - the ultimate holiday piece if I ever saw one. Hopefully when I wear it in Ibiza in a month’s time I’ll have a tan to match! Switch from wearing with high-top Converse in the day to a pair of your most sexy black heels and a splash of red lipgloss for a slinky evening look. Ah, the sun’s already got me longing for nights on the beach with a cocktail and my gorgeous man to cosy up to. Ibiza trip, hurry up please! 

P.S. Happy Easter my loves :) hope you have also spent your day so far lazing in PJS and scoffing many a chocoalte egg … x

Well what a surprise, the lovely spring weather has revealed itself to be a tease and slipped away, leaving us once more with rain and chilled air and grey skies. But us Brits should expect nothing less! Luckily I’d not yet shifted my wardrobe entirely from spring to summer so still have some pieces for this annoying transitional weather. Leather leggings are an essential – light and cooling, but still warm enough if there’s a breeze out. It’s tough to find ones that aren’t too see-through though. I’ve had my ones from Hearts and Bows for a while now so unfortunately they’re sold out. Holla if you know of any other good ones as I’m always on the lookout for more!

There’s something super chic about leather leggings with with a pretty top and boots – and tops don’t come much prettier than my one here from Hobbs! It’s actually categorised as occasion wear, but I think it’s got a great boho vibe too that’s makes it perfect for a more sophisticated day look with leggings or jeans. You know when you get a piece and know it’s going to be a staple in your wardrobe for life? That’s what I got with this. I love the top’s intricate cut-out detail, and the length of the sleeves is just perfect. It billows out at the back too, so I can’t wait for sunny summer days to float around in it and feel like a boho princess ;) x

Events | Divergent European Premiere

Divergent premiere Leicester Square London

dress: Three Floor | shoes: Zara

Walking the red carpet at a film premiere has always been a dream of mine. I went through Leicester Square so many times on the way back from work when I lived in London while premieres were going on, but never thought I’d actually get to be at one myself (unless we’re counting the time I accidentally walked onto the red carpet during the Inbetweeners Movie premiere, bumped into Simon Bird and was promptly chased off by security guards). Luckily, at the Divergent premiere last weekend there was no accidentally walking on and the security guards happily let Callum and I through – because we had tickets! Eee!

To be honest, it was quite different to how I imagined it to be. There was a lot of queuing for starters, and then ticket holders walked the carpet from a different end to the cast and celebrities, so there was no papping or fans screaming out for my autograph (though a few did watch me oddly as Callum took a few snaps of my dress). We were also ushered into the cinema pretty quickly so didn’t get to take as many photos as we would have liked, or get close to the stars. Still, I managed to get a good gawk at Shailene Woodley, who is my newest girlcrush (those eyes! That smile!) and then we settled into our seats and waited for the cast to arrive. After a quick intro, it was on to watching the film – which was amazing! Lots of kick ass action and some super hot tension between Shailene and her leading man Theo James. I loved the soundtrack too. Divergent is out in cinemas nationwide TODAY so check out the trailer to see if it looks like your kind of movie.

One of the nicest things about having this premiere as my first red carpet experience (she says, as if there’ll be more) is that Divergent is based on a series of books written by Veronica Roth, a fellow young adult author. I did get a little emotional on her behalf at the thought of how she’d be feeling at seeing her words brought to life, especially with such an amazing cast. I mean, Kate Winslet – Kate Winslet! – is playing one of her characters. I can’t imagine how incredible that feels. Writing is always my first and foremost priority, and I feel so privileged to be able to do it as my job, but of course it would be amazing to have a film made out of one them too. Hey, a girl can dream … ;) x

Outfits | Pastel Pink Coat and Jeans

A pink coat has been on my wishlist for months now, and finally I have one! My pastel cravings are very much satisfied. It’s this beauty from Miss Patina - I love the menwear-inspired shape and the retro buttons, something a little different from the other pink coats I’ve been seeing around. The blazer style also adds a preppy edge. Of course, when you’re wearing a pink coat you must also wear pink somethingelse to fully revel in the pinkness (it’s basically the law) so I popped on my SIWY skinnies and a breton top – breton and pink, another match made in heaven.

P.S. I only realised afterwards while putting this post together than even my nails are pink too. Total coincidence, I promise! x

Sunset walks are the best things to clear your head. Callum and I are lucky to live in such a beautiful town – St Albans is a wonderful city to walk around, hand in hand, just talking, taking in the views and getting a break from spending hours sat in front of computer screens. We try and get a good walk in at least once every weekend. This time, the day was just at that perfect hazy, almost-twilight glow, the streets flooded with amber light. Gorgeous. I was feeling pretty chilled so just threw together a super simple outfit, featuring my amazing new leopard-print flats from Primark which you all fell in love with on Instagram. Can you believe they were just £6?! I’m going to buy a few more next time I visit the Oxford Street store as I know I’ll be wearing them so much they’ll quickly tire out.

Have a great day sweeties! x
