I fell deeply in love with the ruined orangery at Gibside. The tall brick arches with the overgrown garden within was like something out of The Enchanted Castle – my favourite Edith Nesbit novel.
Wild cherry blossoms and the perfect gingham dress
Of all the things I’ve bought for myself this year, this coffee and cream gingham dress is the one thing that I never want to take off, and it’s easy to see why!
This Ace & Jig dress is the first thing I’ve been able to style, shoot and blog since Lila’s birth in July. I think you’ll agree that it’s an absolutely stunning piece to get back to blogging with!
Blue gingham and cherry blossoms
Gingham and cherry blossoms are simply the perfect duo, aren’t they? I can’t think of any other print or fabric that immediately evokes summer.

Last Saturday was the perfect summer day (in April!) Owen and I took the afternoon off to wander along Jesmond Dene.
Translating Pinspiration to my wardrobe

The Summer Goth No-One Expected
Change of pace! Summer and I aren’t the best of friends, and the hotter it gets, the less I want to fuss around with clothes and makeup. Which is why I’m so glad to have found the ultimate T-shirt dress that I can just throw on.
Lilac fields, strawberry dreams
It was such a beautiful day at the park, I want to let the photos speak for themselves. I’m dreaming endless, glorious summer dreams.
The garden centre at Lal Bagh is one of my favourite places in Bangalore. While the gardens themselves are fairly bustling, the nurseries are an oasis of sorts.
