treasure hunting.

A few snaps of my favourite finds during a visit to an incredible antiques mill- I came away with a simple framed illustration of fish ( I will show you soon ) but am trying to resist a revisit for an unbelievable sofa.
I have a slight obsession with semi- precious stones.... dating back to my childhood when I used to collect rocks and gems!


williamson park.

This weekend was the first chance of photos since returning from a holiday on Thursday morning. I spent the day at a beautiful park, butterfly house that was incredible, and visiting a true gem of an antiques centre.

 I had been a little hesitant about visiting Lanzarote , but the hotel was pure paradise, and far exceeded my preconceptions. Balinese day beds complete with fresh linen sheets, mid morning fruit kebabs, afternoon tea and beautiful weather almost the whole time!


take a peak.

Beautiful scalloped edging and a new purchase. Full outfit on the way tomorrow. Katie.x 


Miroslava & Joanna.

Miroslava Duma and Joanna Hillman continue to be some of my fashion week absolute favourites.... every outfit and every detail.... dreamy. Katie.x


favourite times.

I am flying home from holiday late on tonight..... a few more days until I return to the city and to work. One of my favourite things to do sat on my skinny balcony.. dreaming of far away cities. Katie.x



Feeling a little basic in this monochrome ensemble after the colour and pattern overload from NYFW yesterday.....

streetstyle at NYFW.

Tommy Ton for style.com and Nam of Street FSN.... I salute you! thankyou for the incredible streetstyle shots... leaving me truly inspired. I adore the high impact colours and intricate pattern on pattern. wow. Katie.x


patent & perfect.


Absolutely love the clean lines, simple black patent and understated heel height of my new shoes, and the way they look so abstract in the composition of these photos. 
(shoes:- a/w 11 Zara)


sunset gazing.

Gazing out at a clear blue skies, bright sunshine and a beautiful sea right about now on holiday- shts taken before i went away. Katie.x 


plaited metal.

Close up of my latest jewellery crush...discovered in H&M on the way home from work. Unbelievably £9.99... and the last one left. I love this time of year when unexpected treasures appear in high street stores, that literally disappear in the blink of an eye. Katie.x


pink & blue & stunning details.

coloured glasses, statement earrings, burgundy lips, aztec prints, crystal brooches, navy + black, denim + fur, studded slippers, coloured tailoring.
If you haven't visited you really should- nobody knows Marc- so much inspiration- crammed into one stunning blog.x


polka. print.

navy blue polka dot blouse. new in and already a 'go-to' in the wardrobe. I love the navy and burgundy mix, and the semi sheer fabric making it the perfect day or night option.
(zara blouse, The Kooples bag, h&m jeans)

Preview of outfit post coming right up. Polka dots, leopard and burgundy in equal amounts.
