Girl in the Lens


An off-shoulder jumper dress and over-the-knee boots is my new go-to combination after discovering this little pairing last weekend. These are my first pair of over-the-knees, and I have to say I’m a convert! Not only are they great for keeping your pins warm in this unpredictable spring weather, but there’s something just so chic and sexy about them too. I also took the jump and invested in a duster trench. All my coats are packed away in storage until the winter (perhaps a premature move on my part, blame wishful thinking!) and a duster is the perfect breezy coverup as we wait for the temperatures to rise. 

A bit like the weather, it’s been one of those months full of both highs and lows. We’re still waiting on moving into our new flat because part of our chain fell through, so that means we’re back with the parents for now, living out of boxes. Frustrating! But there’s nothing to be done, so I’m trying to embrace this new lifestyle – and be thankful we’re lucky enough to have somewhere to stay in the meantime. On the flip side, a high came at the end of April when I finished the first draft of my new book! There’s still a long way to go, of course, and this is only the start of what will certainly be a long, long process. But it feels great to take some time off and let my mind breathe after all those months of intense writing. I can’t wait to share more about this book with you all. As always, it feels like a little piece of my heart lives within these words.

Hope you have a wonderful week dearhearts! This weekend we’re off to Amsterdam with a couple of friends, and we have a fun shoot with one of my favourite brands planned whilst we’re over there (hint – it has something to do with tulips). I’m so excited! Amsterdam has long been on my travel wishlist. If you’ve been, do let me know any recommendations for things to see/eat/do in the comments below 🙂 maybe I’ll re-watch The Fault in Our Stars for inspiration … though kissing in the middle of the Anne Frank museum is perhaps not quite as appropriate in non-movie life! x
