The Black Jumpsuit

Ok, so who doesnt dream about wearing their Pj’s out all day!? I swear this jumpsuit from Pretty Lavish is the perfect and chicest way to get away with feeling just that comfortable. I didnt even realise my wardrobe was missing such a simple item. I always seem to bypass the basics and opt for the more “Exciting” pieces then to realise that the basic’s actually ARE the more exciting pieces!!

I adore this super low detailed back, and wide leg. The wide leg gives it such a vintage feel and looks fab worn with heels for a dressier look.

I paried the jumpsuit with last seasons Mango lace-up heels, my favorite go to baker boy hat, and my Meli Melo bucket bag!

Roses roses roses! I’m really digging rose print’s this summer so I was so excited to see Nobody’s Child stock this lovely vintage rose print ruffle wrap dress. 

I styled it with my new baby (the bag that is!) from Meli Melo

Easter In VilleFranche-Sur-Mer


Welcome to the magical VilleFranche-Sur-Mer! Today we celebrated the resurrection of Jesus and it couldn’t of been in a more beautiful place. We had lunch next to the water surrounded by brightly colored buildings on one side and little boats on the other. Matty was obsessed with feeding the fish, so we copied the fishermen and gave them a bunch of french fries. I’m pretty sure they loved them!

Today I wore a new top from Pull & Bear, with my basic ripped vintage Levis shorts. My glasses are vintage and I found them in a Vide Grenier (Flea market) for 1.00 euro!! Have I told you how much I love finding deals 😉

I hope you enjoyed my photos from Ville Franche as much as I enjoyed being there!!!

Cannes In Vintage

We started off at the Cannes Gare SNCF aka train station. I saw this awesome 60’s billboard I just had to snap it. Behind me you can get a glimpse of the station! The sweater I’m wearing here is from the Zara sale 40% off! I just love the scalloped edge, go grab one before its gone!!

Theres so many fun things too look at in Cannes! I just love this chocolate shop window, just look at the lipstick chocolates!! <3

Next stop which is ALWAYS on my list when I come here is Steak and Shake! See it there on the left? Best spot and makes me feel like I’m in LA again having a burger and milkshake 🙂

It was very sunny yesterday so I decided to brave it and wear shorts, I paired it with this amazing vintage blouse I found at the flea market last weekend! I love this blouse, the lace and ruffle is so perfect!!

Vintage Varsity Jacket

 

Hey! It’s  been awhile since I posted an outfit update, but there’s a good reason for it! I’ve been getting things ready & preparing to open my Depop shop Oh Lover Vintage again.  I’ve just added a few pieces to it,  so check it out!! When spring hits so do  all the flea markets here in France.

These quintessentially French Flea Markets are called Vide Greniers which means  ‘Cleaning out the attic’!! Can you imagine all of the amazing things that are hidden in the attics of French homes? You are right if your imagination goes wild! Cruising through some of the best assortment of vintage is my kind of thing, and I always come back home with my arms full. Over the weekend I decided I was going to hit a few to search for some awesome stock for my shop, and yet again I wasn’t disappointed!

My love and understanding of vintage clothing goes back to my youth. I started as a teenager working in a ton of vintage stores all over London including Camden, Notting Hill & also Stockholm, Sweden. My favorite thing to do is to rummage  through piles of old clothes to find the  perfect items! Its such a thrill!!

I will do a blog post  very soon for you to help you know what  to look for when going to flea markets or car boot sales.

This red vintage varsity jacket with the initials A.C for American Collage is one of the pieces I came across on my treasure hunt!! If you follow me on Instagram I told you there was a secret to this jacket… Well the secret is that I paid just 3Euro for it!! I know I was shocked too!

I paired the jacket with a simple black turtle neck and some ripped Levis denim shorts. Its still not hot enough to wear just the shorts so fishnets (as always) was just the thing!
