Get out of the house!

Jumpsuit - Topshop (old - similar here!), Nike Trainers - Very, Tank top - Zara, Handbag - Zara

Working from home can get pretty lonely after a while, so recently I decided to join the gym! I used to run but this is the first time I've actually ever joined a gym and I'm surprised at how much fun it is (the feeling after - not the feeling during!) It now gives me an excuse, other than a trip to the post office, to get out of the house. 
It also gives me an excuse to buy a new pair of shoes - my new Nike trainers - which I'm in love with! I think I wear them more on a daily basis then I do to the gym...

Though it's not all lonely work and gym for me, yesterday I popped into Cambridge town centre with my brother, here's a little look at what I wore (a long overdue post!)

Hope you're all enjoying the sunshine!

Jolly Folk!

Dress - Zara (old), Shoes - Matalan (in store), Blazer - ASOS (old), Michael Kors lookalike watch - eBay

It's been a busy week over at These Folk HQ, very excited to say you can now buy These Folk from Jolly Brown in Hitchin, Hertfordshire. An amazing shop full of vintage and independent clothing labels, so if you're around the area, go check it out!

This was my outfit from yesterday, I was looking forward to a weekend of blazing sunshine but unfortunately it was stuck behind clouds all weekend! In vain hope that the sun may come out at some point, I kept my legs out but teamed up my outfit with a boyfriend blazer and fur stole.

Hope the sun is shining where you are!

THE dress!

Dress - Motel, Shoes and Bag - New Look, Blazer - Mango, Coat - Zara

This dress has been sitting in my wardrobe for quite a while now. I've been waiting for the perfect occasion to wear it as it's such a gorgeous dress and what better occasion than for mine and my boyfriend's 4 year anniversary!

He earned a lot of boyfriend brownie points this year by hiring out a private room of a gorgeous fancy restaurant and having it decorated with candles and flowers as a surprise for me, which is big for him as he is not a romantic at all!

But back to the dress! It is so easy to dress up and down - throw on a pair of converses and you've got your daytime look sorted! Best purchase i've made in a while, I might have to invest in the other items (such as the matching crop and shorts) as i'm in love with this print!

Summer's back for the weekend!

Dress - New Look (in store concession) , Clutch - Boohoo (similar here!), Necklace - Primark, 
Shoes - River Island (similar here!), Coat - Zara

This week has been quite a busy one. These Folk is going to be stocked in 2 new stores, one online and one in Hertfordshire so I have been sorting out stock and everything for that!

It's also a very special day today (cue nauseousness) it's mine and my boyfriend's 4 year anniversary! He has a big surprise arranged for me, I have a new dress for it (outfit post to come) but I have no idea if it's appropriate! We could be going to a rugby match for all I know!

This is the outfit I worse yesterday, I saw the blue skies outside when I woke up so I jumped for this dress from New Look. I bought it a few months back but have been waiting for a summery day to wear it... finally!! I threw on some ankle socks too as without them I looked a bit too dressy for daytime.

Hope you all have a lovely sunny weekend :)
