Oh hello, June, where did you come from?  Seriously how is it June already? I'm going to try and make the most of summer this year - despite everything else being rubbish. I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun in the sun. Sound like a good plan, doesn't it? ⠀

Oh hello, June, where did...

I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

A girl who just love...

Visiting Basildon House

What a girl to do when she can’t visit a castle for the day, well she visits a National Trust property, here’s me visiting Basildon House.

I’m sure I said this before, but I do like visiting a nice big old castle, filled with dark passageways and dingy dungeons. We (Richard and I) visited Lewes castle not so long ago and while it was nice to walk around it. The castle was in ruined and there was no secret passageway for me to explore.

But last week we didn’t visit an old castle, we went to a National Trust Property’s, Basildon House. It was my mother in law suggestion and we went along with it.

It a big old house in the middle of an English countryside. As you will see from the photos, we were in the middle of nowhere and it was strangely very peaceful.

I can’t give you the history of the place as I was more looking at the house home décor and imagining how it would have been in Downton Abbey days.

Inside the house, it was very much a mixture of Edwardian décor with a little bit of 1950s style. It an odd mixture from two completely different time period but it works very well and it does give you a sense of what it must have been like in those time periods as everything is original and untouched.

As always when you visit these old places, we explore the ground and stopped off for tea and cake. I mean you can’t go exploring anywhere if you can’t stop off for tea and cake. In fact, Richard and I had the most delicious brownie ever. I’m still dreaming about that brownie even now.

If you want a day in the English countryside and love exploring old houses, Then I do recommend Basildon house. But do be aware that it part of the National Trust, so you would need a membership to enter.

Here are my photos from Basildon House.
