John Lennon's Long Lost Sister

Summer has arrived! Well, it definitely has here in Falmouth at least. With just weeks left in my University town before I have to make the momentous move back home to Kent with all of my possessions in tow, i'm determined to make the most of living in such a beautiful place! And so that means attempting to visit as many seaside towns as possible, eating as many ice-creams and pasties I can stuff in, browsing lots of boutique shops and eateries, and maybe, just maybe, trying to stay upright on a surfboard. After finishing my degree a fortnight ago however, I spent the first few days reacquainting myself with naps, drinks, proper food and TV series that I'd been meaning on catching up on for what feels like forever. I then spent a very much needed week at home with my family, enjoying seeing my not-so-puppy-sized-anymore Teddy and little brother Doug. Now back in Falmouth, I can't wait to start ticking off everything on my to-visit list! 

Mid-crisis time between Dissertation hand in and exam period, I had a brief period of joy when I received this beautiful pinafore from Dahlia in the post. I think it's pretty much known that I have a soft spot for a good pinafore, and this is one that (if I could) I would never take off! As I haven't blogged in quite a while, there's a few new bits and bobs in this post that i've yet to share; my new sunglasses made by the lovely Jaymie that are pretty much stuck to my face, even if they leave me looking a bit like John Lennon's long-lost sister, my sale bargain ASOS bag that shows my not-so-secret Dog obsession to everyone that walks by, and finally, the rose gold Olivia Burton watch that i've had my eye on for a very long time and was lucky enough to be treated to on my birthday from my boyfriend. Now that time in beautiful Falmouth is running out, I have to make sure that a chance for a fish and chips dinner is never missed, we all know that a trip to the seaside isn't the same without a good portion of chips smothered in salt and vinegar!

  21. Oh, you look amazing! I'm really contemplating getting a pinafore, but am not sure if I could pull it off. x

  22. i love that handbag, i actually had my eye on it during the ASOS sales as well but it sold out before i'd committed to buying it! it's such a cute shape though, i need to find a perfect little bowler bag like it. and of course anything from dahlia will brighten anyone's day, especially if it's a pinafore! congrats on finishing your degree and hope you're enjoying finally relaxing and having a little holiday. :)

  25. We are loving your blog and this outfit here in the CAGECITY office. I wore my dungaree dress yesterday and felt so summery. Hope you get lots of trips to the seaside and get everything ticked off on your list to do, so all we need now is for this sun to stay out and you are really making me crave fish and chips now haha.

    Much love from the CAGECITY crew!xx
