Beau boots of dreams

I have officially found my dream boots. I've been looking for some beautiful black boots (laces optional) since last winter and now they've entered my life like a beautiful mirage. I first noticed Beau Coops when they collaborated with Karen Walker and now I keep seeing & hearing about the brand everywhere. It's like a sign.

I heart these boots. They're so multi-functional - they're perfect for winter and those not-so-warm London summers, plus they'd be a great addition to a festival outfit. That's like three uses in one, so really, it's like buying three shoes for the price of one...that's totally logical right?

Right, time to sort out how I get my hands on these beauties! Currently I can only find them for sale at home from Good As Gold, but I'm sure I can find them in the Europe if I search properly. If not, it's time to call in a favour from one of my siblings back home, or pay a big mumma shipping fee.

Have a good weekend all, I'm off to Spain with two of my besties! Wooooo!

Handsome swimwear

After spending 9 days frolicking around Egypt recently (much of which was spent poolside or Nileside), I realised that I really need a new swimsuit before summer. I'm a big fan of patterned / unique swimwear, so you can imagine my excitement when I checked out the latest We Are Handsome range this week. I seriously want EVERY item of The Romantic 2012 collection. The patterns, cuts and styles are just stunning and so beautiful. Trust an Aussie company to nail swimwear so well, they do spend half their lives at the beach. Totally can't wait until I live in Sydney in a couple of years time, so many chances to wear beautiful beachwear! 

I love the cheekiness of the WAH designs, who doesn't want a cute-as-pie dog on their one piece or a grizzly bear on their bum? The lookbook images are pretty sweet too, I heart the pairing of different floral pieces together, it works so well. This shoot seems like such a beautiful haven after this grim fortnight of weather we've had in London. 

Bring on summer, bring on the nice weather, bring on new WAH treats and bring on my trip to Spain next weekend with the girls! Wooooo!

Here's hoping I'll be enjoying the Spanish sun with one of these bad boys on! 
Happy Friday kids.

Date with a duffle

I'm not really in the market for a duffle, but if I was, I would totally get this treatie. I really like the colour combo, the cottony goodness and the overall style. 

This is just another benefit of living in east London...so many great unique stores around. This is literally around the corner from my workshop, love. 

I can imagine wearing this on a summers day while zipping around on a bike. I totally go faster with this on my back right?

Maybe I am in the market for a duffle after all...

How hot is the new Mulberry Del Rey bag?

How cool would it be to have a bag named after you? Such a compliment.

I aaaaammmmmm looking for a new bag, but I think this is just a tad out of my price range.
