Back To Blogging…Again!

Well…Long time no see eh? After a month or so away from blogging, I realised I’d had a little break about the same time last year.
It was much for the same reasons to be honest. It’s nice to step away from madly trying to document everything, to enjoy the Summer, company of friends and seeing new places.
 
That being said, I still found myself carrying my camera around, even if I wasn’t always snapping outfit photos! Doh!
 
A few weeks back, I went to London to visit my friend Richard to go view The British Music Experience at the O2.

I based my outfit on a pair of textured black skinny trousers (unfortunately the amazing black-on-black pattern doesn’t photograph very well!) teamed with a beautiful velvet smock dress from Monsoon, that I found for a snip on eBay.
My cardigan is H&M, the coffee pot necklace was my Nanna’s and the scarf worn on my head was a thrifty find from Berlin.

 
I had a bit of an epiphany lately when it comes to my sartorial choices. I felt that I had been playing it safe when it came to colour in my outfits.
 
I recalled how adventurous I was in my late teens, wearing blindingly-bright theatre paint on my eyes, and lusting after anything multi-coloured or visually interesting.
 
Whilst those foundations have remained, I have felt a little uninspired lately (perhaps another reason for the break!)
So although still relatively subtle, this outfit felt like a step in the right direction – I even reunited my eyelids with yellow (in shadow not theatre paint this time!)
 
As for the exhibition…It was awesome! Richard and I have long bonded over a shared passion for music, and this amazing exhibition had us dancing and singing all the way round!
And despite being told off for taking a photo, I couldn’t resist slyly snapping a few more for you to see!
 
There are six different rooms which each contain a different decade, and all the music, paraphernalia and social history, to give you a full idea of how British music evolved and developed.
 
The Beatles obviously got a little mention…

1960’s frocks that were worn by Dusty Springfield and Petula Clark…
Glam rock! As a huge fan of T-Rex and Mr Bowie, I loved this room!

And of course, a healthy dose of the Rolling Stones, including this daring catsuit by Ossie Clark, worn by Mick Jagger (phwoar!)

The information that the exhibition provides is so interesting! Learning about how America and Britain competed to get ‘the latest sound’ and how political and social events influenced what we listened to was great to found out about!
 
Plus with so many soundbites, videos and headphones dotted around – we were literally in musical heaven!
After all that excitement, an iced tea was deemed essential!
 
And although I haven’t been blogging, I have kept up with sharing on instagram, including some recent purchases, like this retro fabric duck (a surprise car boot find!) a beautiful woven kimono jacket from the Zara sale, a new bedside lamp fromMade and a whole heap of beautifully coloured cosmetics from & Other Stories!
I also holidayed in Berlin with Joshua (a post to come soon!) visited Arundel Castle with some friends, had a giggle and a catch up with my younger sister, and celebrated Ava Lily turning two! 
And news just in (well about a week ago now!) I had my hair chopped off even shorter!
I’ll give you all a proper look soon, but suffice to say I am thrilled with it – the hairdresser did an amazing job!
So there we have it! I’ll be posting regularly from now on, and have quite a lot of backlogged adventures to share with you too!
 
Thanks for sticking around!
 
Love Yours Truly, x

Joe and I went to the BME and we spent literally about 3 hours just walking about and taking it all in, such an amazing experience! Also love your new hair!
