Outfit Post: Pretty In Purple

When I am in London and I am running around Press Days, shopping trips, brunches with friends and blogger events I usually like to dress up and accessorise, but when I am at home in Canterbury, either greeting guests at Pilgrims Nook (this week I have been chatting with people about hosting their weddings!) and showing them around their cottages, or shopping with my Mum or running errands I tend to go for a slightly more casual, paired down version of my everyday look. 
DSC_1957 My favourite uniform for these lazy days in Autumn/ Winter tends to be a jumper dress with either tights or black high waisted leggings and a pair of Uggs, but in the Spring/ Summer I tend to go for comfortable jeans and striped tee shirts from either H&M or Boden, long sleeved for Spring and short sleeved for Summer. Shoe wise, I have been living in my very large selection of Havaianas flip flops and sandals. However, still in the endless battle to pass my driving test I have been running around and having lots of lessons suitable, but Havaianas, flip flops or sandals are not really suitable to drive in. After featuring them a few weeks ago, I decided to pick up a pair of Keds to run around in instead - I think we are going to be having a lot of fun together this Summer!

What are your go to Spring basics?

  1. Your title doesn't lie - you do look pretty in purple! This outfit is gorgeous x

  2. Aww, thank you! I was a bit worried about it, calling myself 'pretty' seemed like a very Samantha Brick thing to do, but I could not think of anything else that had the same ring to it!

  5. I am hooked on my keds. I love the colour of your ones! And loving the cute jumper as well.

  6. Love the colour of these keds!


  7. I loove how this entire outfit is purple! Right now, for our warmish autumn, my basics are button downs and skater skirts.

  8. Purple looks amazing in all the green, you look so great! I loved your shoes, they are my favorites too.

    And my basics never change, almost. A navy style striped top, a comfortable skirt or a pair of efortless jeans combined with daily ballet flats or Keds. Good enough for almost any day! xx

  9. LOVE that shade of purple, aren't Keds so comfy?!
