I've just gotten back from the most amazing trip to Chicago and the state of Illinois. I feel like I've been away for a month when in reality it's only been eight days. I can't really put into words how much fun I had. America completely stole my heart!  I feel absolutely exhausted but in a good way. Not sure I'm quite ready to hit reality yet - quite enjoyed being in a bubble. I've got a few posts planned so keep your eyes peeled.

I shot this outfit just before I went away to see Charlie And The Chocolate Factory at the West End. Make sure you buy tickets sharpish if you haven't seen it- it's great fun being transported back to your childhood! I threw on something together last minute as all my more causal clothes were already packed in a suitcase. Although I looked liked I was spending a day in the office, I quite liked it. Maybe it's one for the office next week! The coat is certainly proving to be value for money judging by the amount of times it's making appearances.


  1. I have such a crush on those shoes! x

  2. Love midi skirts! They are perfect for work or out on the town!
    So Classy!
