Last Wednesday we both managed to have the day off work so took the opportunity to pack in a full day of blogging fun in beautiful Bath! Naturally it wouldn’t be a proper blogger day out without taking some outfit photos so after having our hair perfectly cut and curled by the delightful ladies at Frontline Style (our full review will be up on Total Bath shortly so keep your eyes peeled locals) we frolicked around near some of our favourite Bath buildings in some super lovely Sugarhill Boutique pieces.

We both adore the fun and feminine style of Sugarhill boutique so it was an absolute joy to be able to choose and style a few of their Summer pieces! We are both usually drawn to their quirkier prints (dogs, lollies, massive toucans – that sort of brilliant shenanigans) but thought this might be a nice opportunity to try something a little different.

Victoria chose the gorgeous blue Stripe Organza Midi Skirt* which looked breathtakingly good as she swished her way around Bath! It’s so elegant and flattering and looked perfect when teamed with the white Emma Shell Top* which features a very pretty broderie detail. She finished her look with her white Forever Comfort sandals from Next* and an extra pop of colour in the form of her staple Boden Westminster handbag*.

I went for the vintage inspired Aurora dress* which features the most beautiful pastel floral print. The colours look stunning and the fit and flare cut make it such a comfortable dress to wear. I was, as always, thrilled to discover the dress has pockets which I will no doubt be stashing all manner of things into at a Summer wedding near you! I teamed the dress with sheer dotty tights from Pamela Mann at MyTights*, a mustard belt from Primark, cream brogues from Faith at Debenhams (old) and, seeing as great blogging duo minds think alike, an extra pop of colour in the form of my staple Boden Milan clutch*!

Happy Easter everyone! We hope you are all suitably stuffed with chocolate and are now enjoying a nice relaxing food coma on the sofa. That’s what we’ll be doing for the foreseeable future and pretty darn great it is too. However, before we consumed an unreasonable amount of sugar, we went on a rather lovely sunny stroll around the neighborhood to take some outfit snaps featuring a couple of beautiful new Emily and Fin dresses.

Emily and Fin always do such wonderful shapes but we were both really keen to try out the ‘Jessica’ which is in a lovely sleeveless shirt style with concealed buttons all the way down the front of the dress. We had both commented that this style of dress was perhaps a little different for us and with both prints available in different shapes we were a little worried we had put all of our Easter eggs in one basket (boom boom). We needn’t have worried though as the ‘Jessica’ is the most flattering cut and the shirt detailing with the tailored collar is a delight. We are both rather in love, especially at it also has concealed pockets! Perfect for stuffing your chocolate wrappers in.

The vintage inspired prints are, as always with Emily and Fin, completely stunning with Victoria’s western inspired Green Cowboys dress* looking yee-hawt when teamed with her denim jacket from Waxen at Joy*. She accessorised simply with a brown belt from Accessorize and brown ankle boots from Clarks, which perfectly complimented the colours and western style of the dress. Victoria likes a bit of ranch dressing, you might say. I (Jo) teamed my gorgeous Vintage Hawaiian print dress* with a super bright pink jacket from Louche at Joy* which I think looks great set against the delightful blues of the dress. I continued my brights theme with a yellow woven clutch from Boden* and finished off with a gold belt and some trusty patent shoes from Faith. I like a bit of island dressing, you might say.

After doing a lot of fashion-easter posing, we rewarded ourselves with Easter cakes, coffee and games(!) at The Bristolian cafe before stumbling across the most wonderful Alice in Wonderland graffiti on our walk home. We couldn’t help but take a few (hundred) more snaps!

Last Friday after indulging in a jolly gin-fueled tea party to celebrate all of those little life achievements that often get neglected due to busy schedules, we decided to throw on our new summer glad rags and head to our local park to continue the party! We are so thrilled that we did as we were greeted by a colourful mini-meadow of beautiful flowers.

Victoria: I wore a black embroidered trim playsuit from Rare* with over-sized sunglasses from Accessorize. My super bright orange nail polish is from Missguided and oh boy, I have found the comfiest shoes ever! They are handmade Menorcan sandals from Solillas*. I had planned on saving these for my upcoming holiday to Tunisia, but when I tried them on with this playsuit I was pleasantly surprised about how perfectly the turquoise complimented the embroidery, and the stylish deal was done. Marvelous!

Jo: I adore this lovely floral summer dress from Rare*, the beautiful shades of green and orange look so pretty together and it’s just so easy to wear! It doesn’t crease (praise be!) and the slightly heavy material means there is no risk of a breezey disaster. Perfect English Summer wear! I accessoried it simply with a pair of cream Faith brogues from the Debenhams sale and my go to Topshop sunglasses. Oh, and about one million flowers.

We’re hoping the weather stays this lovely all weekend for this years Bristol Balloon Fiesta!
