I finally got to wear the sundress I wanted too because the weekend was glorious and it was my first weekend where me and Ben were both free all day so we made a day of it…. Well I did, shopping!
My nan’s cardigan came out with me on Saturday. Despite the lovely weather we had over the weekend in Wales. It was a must, to layer the way I did, the pop of colour was important for this dark dress. This kind of red makes everything light up very well. A denim jacket for the unpredictable weather that is Wales, the red cardigan wrapped around the waist made it look extra but also toned down and less girly. The Original Adidas trainers helped in the relax department too.
To bring some sass, cat eye sunglasses and some gorgeous earrings I bought in Wallis Debenhams in the sale!

She will never stop living in memory and certainly lives in my clothes.
Today I visited my nan’s grave at the cemetery, it felt strange. Almost like I was looking at a different name and felt sad for someone else. As the day went on, she become more and more part of my day.
I was inspired to do a style post today, its gloomy, wet and dull here in Wales and so my hopes of wearing a black dotty sundress went out the door. I went hunting for my black frilled top with flared sleeves, to go with my mom jeans – but as I walked into the spare room, (the room that is now mine and my mother’s wardrobe) I saw all of my nan’s old jumpers and cardigans.
Most of them are going to a lady who makes blankets and toys out of jumpers and cardigans. I chose an elephant toy (I’ve been thinking of an elephant toy especially for when I have children). I saw this red Sheer cardigan peeping out and thought how gorgeous. THE cardigan I have been searching for, thank you nan. Lovely fit, not too loose not too tight, and I love this chenille material, its like a soft velvet. Chic and relaxed its the best combination for my preferred style. The cardigan is from Marks and Spencer’s. For anyone who lives in the UK would know this is a quality and expensive cardi. I had to feature my nan’s gold coin necklace. Yes, authentic! I don’t need to be buying any replicas.
This red cardigan is not disappearing any time soon, I don’t have a choice in the rubbish weather we keep having but I love to layer my outfits, so this would be great wrapped round my waist or underneath a denim jacket and dotty sundress. Keep an eye out to see this next look! I’m very excited and feeling very emotional. I just love how she is still very much involved physically, the cardigan smells like her so much. The freaky part is as well, it was made in Thailand… coincidence. Fits like a glove and my mother is pretty jealous I found this beauty amongst the mountain of jumpers!

This maxi dress fits me like a glove. The dreaded moment before entering the changing rooms, the final result – IT FITS! This being a big deal to me due to the fact my height is 5.1 and maxi dresses are always best suited for longer legs.
This dress was perfect for my Barcelona trip, blending with the ostentatious buildings and weathered grimmy streets; this dress was the perfect loose chiffon dress for Barcelona weather. The small pretty peach and blue flower prints made the dress playful, but the wrap around the chest and the tie-in at the waste gave the dress that flirtatious effect.
This summer it is all about the froks and I’m almost disappointed that I didn’t invest in more. There is always next time…Catch me in my new froks when in Rome!
