This is my first blog post in my new house, YAY! If you’ve moved before, then you know it can be super stressful. It doesn’t help when all of us get hit by the flu at the same time! Actually, I move so much, this event should really be second nature by now! We’ve left the busy city of London, for a quieter Surrey. The main reason why we moved was A for more space, and B so Matty could have a garden to play in. Finding both these things in Notting Hill is slim to non!
For today’s blog post I wanted to introduce you to my new classic loafers, by Prof. In my mind, these are an example of chic & classic. I’ve been looking for a perfect yet affordable loafer for a while now, and so happy I’ve discovered these. Made in Italy with its over-sized gold chain makes these babies super chic! I’ve paired them with a classic strapless black jumpsuit and an over-sized straw hat! Why have I not had such a classic shoe in my wardrobe until now?!!
I’ve put together some inspiration of my spring/summer current faves. Here’s a round up of my top looks for this season!
1: Berets paired with summer dresses
If you have been following me on social then you know I’m beret obsessed! Nothing beats a beret, it gives off that chic look to pretty much any outfit! Actually for me it completes the outfit. I just love the way these gals have paired the notoriously winter hat for the summer. So dont pack your wool berets just yet, you can still rock them for another season!!
2 broderie anglaise, ruffles, and lace up
Im a complete sucker for ruffles, broderie anglaise, and lace up. I recently received a dress by Tobi (HERE) which reminds me of these above photos. I need to up my tanning game as currently I am as white as these crisp fabrics. The bronzed look and these feminine beauties, make me go gaga!
3: Mid length skirts
Ive never been a big fan of midi, but this season I’ll be adding a few of these babies into my wardrobe! Jeanne Damas is always the inspo. She wears them so good, and I love how she paired her midi skirt with a tight cardi… (buying now!)
4 Straw Hats
Nothing says “Summer” like a straw hat. Im a mega hat person, and actually feel much better when I have something on my head! I’ve found a few seriously cute options which I’ve linked below.
5: Button down tops
Here’s a spring/summer wardrobe staple. I LOVE big buttons right now, they give that ‘Extra’ to that basic top! Again, can we just look at that bronzed tan… Honestly If I get one of those this summer it will be a miracle. If your a city Mom, without a garden, and have a wild 4 year old you will understand! *Brings out the fake tan*
6: Cherry everything
As far back as I can remember I’ve been a sucker for cherries! I can remember my first day at 8th grade I wore a Forever 21 tight top with ruched shoulders and cherries. I still think about that top, and wish I still had it. So glad to see cherries in the stores right now, and hoping ill find my replica 8th grade top! BTW & other stories has a blouse just like this one!
If you live in England then you know spring has been a washout (Literally)! I’ve just had a look a the weather forecast and saw next week is going to be SUNNY! YES! (Unless it decides to change its mind, which is usually the case)
Anyway I’ve put together a list of my six favorite sun dresses! Just click the number’s below to shop. 🙂
‘Gabrielle wears denim in double denim’! Dontcha think this is a very fitting outfit post for my Blog?!
I recently got hold of this kimono style jacket from And Other Stories ( A store which I adore BTW). The wide sleeves and belt just sold me right away! I couldnt wait to get my hands on it! A few weeks back I saw Matilda Djerf wearing one similar and it inspired me so much.

I feel like this Denim Kimono will go with so much, and it’s the perfect lightweight wardrobe staple to transition into next season! So if you’re looking for your ‘coming into spring’ lightweight jacket, I give this one a thumbs up!
I wore it with a classic pair of high waist jeans, an over-sized sweater, boots, and of course a beret!!
