London Getaway #1

Last weekend I vacated to London with my beautiful mother bear to see the Diana- Her Fashion Story exhibition at Kensington Palace. The first day we spent at Windsor Castle and the weather was amazing. So HOT!! We 100% landed on the best weekend for it and the grounds were stunning, well worth a visit. 

I planned to wear my new Kurt Geiger red boots and a gingham skirt with some tights. I had a bit of a fake tan disaster (I’m rubbish) and red against not very tanned patchy legs made my legs look even paler. So I’m glad I wore a pair of light denier tights, even though I was roastingggg! The rest of my outfit consisted of a white frill sleeve linen blouse that was accessorised with a cute pastel blue cross over bag that has 3D flowers on the strap (I’ll put the shopping links below to these outfits don’t worry). 

The second day when we visited the exhibition the weather changed temperature wise to a rather cool and breezy day. So I had packed some cropped gingham trousers to wear with my red boots (obviously), and a band tshirt with my studded embroidered leather jacket, accessorised with my back pack and a pair of big sunnies. DONE! 

Now to the exhibition itself… 

When I was at university studying fashion design me and my mum would always venture off to London for a day out and visit a exhibition. We would then go running round trying to find fabric shops (using iPhone maps so stressful), so I could grab tones of samples for my own fashion collections which I would then stick into one of my a million and one sketchbooks. Then we would have to rush back to get the train in rush hour, STRESS! So it was so so nice to venture down just the two of us, but this time be far more relaxed as we were taken from place to place and had a relaxing overnight stay. BLISS!

The exhibition was in the grounds of Hyde Park at Kensington Palace, which were stunning and the sun was still shining. We were so excited to see what beautiful gowns were there, as well as exploring the Kensington Palace grounds. So I’m going to stop rabbling on and show you guys some pictures 🙂 

As you can see the pieces were beautiful these were some of my favourites! I just love embellishment and all the fine details. The exhibition is so worth a visit I would 100% recommend. 

Now to the outfits I mentioned… 

I have gone mad on gingham. For spring it is my favourite trend and I love that it’s not just monochrome either. I’m loving the blues and reds to! And what I love about the trend is that you can style it however you want. My one outfit I feel is my more girly side and my second is more grunge/rock chick. I really like to experiment with my style and it depends what sort of mood I’m in to, and the weather of course. Here are my looks. The links to all the pieces are tagged below 🙂 

Which look do you guys prefer? Comments are much appreciated :). 

Oh and all these photos were taken by my amazing mum on her phone as she is a bit of a pro with a camera and I had packed my Nikon camera with me. But…had left the camera battery still in its charger back at home. IDIOT! All the gear and no idea eh ha!
