South Kensington

Sunday, 17 August 2014

 
I'm slowly working my way across London and likewise to Notting Hill, South Kensington has simply just the prettiest houses I've ever seen! Given I've grown up in a small area, I'm still dazed from these beautiful streets and of course, they make the greatest backdrop. It may appear my growing fondness for London and all of its whimsical features is becoming a tad obsessive but I have no idea just how I manage to not take pictures of it all! Come September when I hopefully become a proud SLR owner, I shall return to these streets and ecstatically 'snap' away.
 
And for such a trip, I couldn't resist wearing my first co-ordinate from Choies.com! Admittedly I did have second thoughts over it as the skirt was a lot more flouncy than expected - which wasn't really an issue - but I couldn't resist updating my little pastel collection, that too with a little 3D touch! I'm not one to jump straightaway to 'trends' as it takes a little convincing to try something out of my comfort zone but I don't ever think I could ever get tired of this!

In The Bloom

Tuesday, 12 August 2014

 
Casual trips into town with Francesca always mean 'hey, let's quickly snap some blog pictures' (story of our lives) and it's always surprising to find somewhere, somewhat unexpectedly , 'new' to take them! It's also very 'new' of me to have my hair down in a plait and whilst I do have big love for plaited do's, I just never felt I could quite pull it off. On the contrary, this little floral number is something I've had for as long as I remember - and perhaps even one of the first dresses I've been given!  
 
Hope you're having a lovely Tuesday!

Little Moments

Wednesday, 6 August 2014

 
There's a part of me that feels guilty from being a little absent from my blog with the outside world constantly interfering. At the end of the day though, not a lot can be done about it and given I still enjoy snapping away pictures out and about, I'd rather share with you guys something I'm happy with myself. Aside from that though, you can also find these 'little moments' over the past month over to my instagram (@wishuponasmile) - Ramadan has just gone, we've had a lot of family and friends over and I've been occupied with several bits and bobs - some of which I can't wait to share with you!
 

By the Cathedral

With it all being Summer and having very warm days than not (surprisingly enough!), dressing up these days means opting for really simple things and keeping it all to its minimum. Whilst a part of me misses recreating 'looks' by layering and accessorising, I've absolutely loved lounging about in the sun and hey, it's not something we should take for granted.
 
I shall keep this short and sweet, so hope you all have a lovely weekend up ahead!
