A Day in the City

'Harlow' dress: c/o Hunted Dreams (link here)
Blue scalloped clutch: c/o Oasap
Gold cuff: Colette Accessories
Heart necklace: c/o Rings and Tings (link here)

A couple of weeks ago the boyfriend and I went to the city for the first time in a while- the reason being we both already work there from Monday to Friday, and also because it's a bit of a long drive from our homes. However it was really lovely to have a change of scenery for our regular weekend dates, which these photos also quite literally reflect!

For out little date, I wore my new 'Harlow' dress from the wonderful guys at Hunted Dreams, a new boutique I discovered that stocks the best range of party and weekend clothes, that are so on-trend and affordable. Just check out the incredibly shot Lookbook on their front page, and you'll see what I mean! They ship worldwide as well!  Don't forget to check out Hunted Dream's Facebook and Instagram :)

Regular blog readers will probably be sick of me in florals by now...but this amazing dress was totally calling to me with the gorgeous digital printed blue and pink flowers! We shot this at Hyde Park and my boyfriend did a great job at capturing the little garden behind us, for a magical and ethereal backdrop! And I know, I know I always pull out the floral head pieces- blame the inner little girl in me who never got to dress up as a fairy when she was young lol! 


We also took a few candid shots around the city- there are so many lovely little different areas to take photos in!

It's also 'International Happiness Day' today! Coincidentally, last night I started writing a draft blog post for a new series I'm about to put on this blog- on the things that I've been happy about in the week gone past. It will incorporate some fashion (because believe it or not, fashion does make me happy lol!) but it will essentially be a way to feel grateful about the positive things we have in life, and hopefully inspire you guys to do the same. These past few weeks I've found a lot of difficulty in managing stress, new and complex situations, and basically could not seem to access a state of contentment and happiness. So I'm going to turn that negative little blip into a positive new idea- a new weekly blog post series on Happiness and what I've been happy about! I hope to make the first post on Sunday, hope you guys like it! :)

  9. I'm so jealous you have all these amazingly pretty places to take photos at. I noticed them while I was in Sydney even though it was such a short trip. It;s such a beautiful city.
    & your outfit looks so pretty! The floral headpiece really tops it off! Also madly in love with your YSL ring.
    Can't wait for the new series of your blog too!

  22. I love the dress and the photos are really stunning, I'm totally speechless! Also, good idea with the happiness posts! Sometimes it's really easy to forget about the good stuff when one encounters a lot of stress and difficulties so it will be a good reminder.

  27. Your pictures are stunning girl! It looks like you just came out of a magazine :) love the floral print dress, the pumps and the floral arrangement on your head! I didn't get to dress up as a fairy when growing up either, so maybe I should try that too! lol

  32. You can never have too many florals. I think this is my new favourite outfit of yours. The flower crown is so gorgeous and perfect and the colours in your dress are super beautiful. There's those shoes of yours I love again. Glad to hear you had a great day in the city. I should do that too but am very much the same in that I spend so much time travelling during the working week.
