Outfit Post: Summer by the River

Couple, By The River

It’s been a stressful week. On Tuesday my little Frank monster got sick, then he got better so we left him at Grandmas and went frolicking to Whitley Bay to see Midlake and hang out with some friends. During the night on Thursday he got sicker so we cut our trip short to be with him: Train tickets, taxis, vet fees, sleepless nights. He seems to be doing a lot better since yesterday, he’s desperate for food and wagging his tail again, but man what an utterly terrifying five days.


Boho Style, Paisley Scarf

Today we went for a quiet little walk to get some fresh air and perspective. This gorgeous patch by the river is literally 10 minutes walk from our home and a stone’s throw from the main road out of the city centre – crazy huh? It was so beautiful and peaceful, I certainly feel refreshed. I wanted something cool and casual to throw on after the week’s events – jeans and brogues are my absolute go-to and I’ve been wearing this scarf to death since it arrived.

Really long necklace

SlinkyLinks sent me this gorgeous necklace. I’ve been looking for a long silver toned necklace for a while; I think a super long necklace is a wardrobe staple, great for breaking up a highly patterned dress or a really boxy fitting blouse. It gives a lovely focus line right down the front on your body, making you appear slimmer. The chain of this one hangs right down through the tassles, making it heavier so it’s sits perfectly straight on your chest. Melodie has such unusual pieces in her shop, be sure to pop over and take a look.

    I love the length of that tee, it looks so comfy! (The colour is great on you, too.) And that scarf and necklace slay me! So lovely. :) Great outfit for what looks like it was an awesome day. :)

    I absolutely love this post but I am also feeling slightly gutted upon reading it as it appears I have missed a Midlake European tour, dammit! Hope you had a fab time at the gig. Hope your doggy is okay, that sounds frightening. Love your outfit too, you can’t go wrong with brogues! xo

    Oh it’s a total staple for me. I got one in two sizes smaller as well so I could wear it as a regular tee, haha. I wonder if H&M still sell them, I love their basics in general. Thank you! :)
