At the beginning of August we attended Paul's Aunt's wedding in Devon. It was a 50's regatta themed in case you hadn't guessed! I was so excited, so much so I think I went charity shopping every weekend since we were sent the invitation. 
Originally I was going to wear a 1950's style dress however after trawling through every charity shop I could think of in Bristol I gave up and decided to have a re-think. 
I found these polka dot wide leg trousers in a local charity shop, which are a dream to wear, so forgiving... especially at an event where you are eating an drinking a fair amount! Paired with a classic black velvet top, some chunky black shoes, and a pop of red to modernise the look.
The hat was a very last minute outfit add-on which Paul's mum Claire gave me the morning of the wedding. (she didn't even know I was wearing polka dots!)
Emma, the bride had a beautifully customised dress, she is always one for a vibrant colour and the blue fringe just worked so well! 
 It was such a glorious chilled out day, filled with family, sun and wonderful cakes! I can't wait till the next wedding!

Lemon Drizzle Cake

Just a quick Sunday morning post. We've made quite a few of these lemon drizzle cakes in our house recently. This one was for our friend who is moving to Barcelona today so we thought another the lemon drizz' was on the cards. It can do no's just the best cake, so light, fluffy and citrusy!

 Beautiful blue hues in Falmouth 

Last weekend I spent some time in Devon to visit my mum's lovely new house in Devon. I can't wait to start spending some more time in my hometown! I always feel I appreciate it so much more now I've moved away. It is always so calm and charming in Exeter. 
On my trip down I also made a fleeting visit to Falmouth to visit my sister where she lives for some of the time with her boyfriend. I have not been before so Esther showed me some of her favourite places, firstly we went on a walk through the lovely high street, to find much to my disappointment one of the shops I most wanted to visit called Folklore is closed on Mondays!  
We then walked from Swanpool Beach and onto Gylly Beach where we sat and watched the boats and swimmers enjoying the clear blue waters, wishing we had all brought our swimming gear as well.
I can't wait to go back already!
