MY RECENT PINS
Category Archives: Fashion
I arrived back home on Monday morning and because it was a lovely autumn day we decided to make the most of the good weather to visit the Japanese Garden in The Hague. Based in Clingendael Park, the Japanese Gardens are only open to the public twice a year, during spring and autumn; from May to mid June and then again the last two weeks in October.
The Japanese Gardens are pretty magnificent and were actually placed on the list of national historical monuments in 2001. I’d visited the garden years ago in Spring but never before had I seen it in it’s autumn splendour. Here some photos of the gardens, don’t you just love all the autumn colours?
Wearing: Black waxed jeans – ZARA // Burgundy V-Neck Knit – H&M // Camel Coat – MANGO (old) // Grey and silver snood scarf – H&M // Tortoise Wallace Sunglasses – Bailey Nelson // New Balance 420 Burgunday & Grey (Link) Am looooooving my new kicks, they are so perfect for fall and winter and are super comfy!
After visiting the gardens (admission free) we wondered for a bit longer through Clingendael Park to soak up even more autumn beautifullness…
It was a lovely afternoon and am glad we did it that day because it’s pretty much not stopped raining in Holland since that day. Ha but have to say, I still love autumn. Do you?
Back in June I attended the wedding of two lovely friends in Wiltshire, which is in South West England. The ceremony was in a beautiful old chapel in the countryside and afterwards the celebrations continued on at Longleat House – which is one of the most stunning venues I’ve visited! We had the best day and evening so thought I’d share some photos I took (on my iPhone) that weekend.
I absolutely love the dress I wore that day. I wish I could say it’s mine, but it’s not – I borrowed it of a friend of mine. It’s a silk one shoulder gown by Zimmermann, one of my favourite Australian designers. They make the most beautiful dresses, perfect for weddings or for bridesmaids.

Zimmermann don’t have any stores here in the UK (sad face) but you can shop online. Love some of these dresses, I want…
Aren’t they the most good looking couple?
We all had the best day celebrating their special day into the wee hours of the night! Wishing them both all the happiness in the world and a HUGE thank you for such an amazing weekend.
One of my new favourite necklaces at the moment is this super sparkly crystal wreath choker necklace! Initially it might seem like quite a fancy piece that needs to be worn with an evening dress or ball gown, but I actually really like dressing it down with a t-shirt or jumper for a more casual look. Or just add it to any simple little dress, like this floral number for some added oomph to your look. It’s so elegant and fun for day or night.
Remember me talking about my visit to Bailey Nelson a few weeks ago to look for some new sunglasses? You can read that post here. Anyway, have to say I am loving the ones I picked, the Bailey Nelson Wallace Tortoiseshell sunglasses. They pretty much did not leave my face while in Turkey!

I also think it’s great that all of Bailey Nelson’s sunglasses come with polarised lenses. It really makes a huge difference for your eyes and reduces reflections and eliminates glare.
Not a bad view right? This was while sunbathing at the sun deck at the Kempinski Hotel in Bodrum which was a few days of ultimate luxury. So relaxing :) Do you like my new Wallace tortoiseshell sunglasses?
I love a statement necklace but sometimes a delicate piece is just as gorgeous! I love my new silver bar necklace with a slight curve by Maison Miru. A necklace like this can really be worn with any outfit, for any occasion.
I love it when wearing a shirt like this or something with a lower neckline. A bar necklace looks great on its own but also looks fab when layered with other longer and/or shorter delicate necklaces. Do you like this kind of simple but elegant necklace?
