I love these pictures so much, I feel like they combine everything I love, colour, Bristol, the harbourside, hanging out with friends and feeling 100% comfortable in the clothes I'm wearing. I think that comes across in the shots too, especially the one above!
I'm working with Fat Face in this post to showcase some of their summer collection. Inspired by items that can be worn whatever the weather as we all know the British weather is beautifully unpredictable. My hero item from this range would definitely be the Melrose Mac in the honey colourway. I'm obsessed with this coat now and have worn it non stop since. It's brilliant on the school run as I am more often than not getting caught in showers (anyone else notice they always happen at school run time??).
In the first pictures I paired the jacket with the Stratus Dungarees. Let me tell you, these babies are probably THE most comfortable item of clothing I own right now. Perfect for breastfeeding too as you just need to unbuckle one strap and life up whatever top you have underneath. I'm fairly tall (5,8) and find dungarees generally a tricky item to get right but as long as I have the straps on the longest length they fit perfectly. I teamed this look with the the Stripe Breton Jumper in blush. I think everyone needs a good few bretons in their wardrobe (just don't look in mine as I have way to many, ha!). This one is actually knit so a little warmer than putting on T shirt and great for the weather right now.
My friend Lauren (who took these pics) and I went exploring round south Bristol on the day we took these pictures. We stopped of at Spike Island for vegan brownies and to check out the latest art exhibition.
That place does a mean vegan brownie (if a vegan brownie can be mean?)
After a quick change we took a walk around the Lubaina Himid exhibition which you read more about here if you like.
I'm wearing the Connie Striped Dress with the Tasha Mid Denim Jacket. I always feel like denim jackets are such a staple wardrobe item. I still get a lot of use out of last years Fat Face denim jacket (you can see it in this post if you like).
After the show we grabbed a coffee to go and went for a walk. It actually decided to pour it down for about ten minutes ironically but lucky we were able to hide in a shop before heading back off on our way.
I'm wearing the Maple Embroidered Blouse which is also a great easy item to pair with jeans and the Tie Waist Tapered Trousers in the desert colourway.
Paired again with the mac after the rain!
I'm really unfamiliar with this side of town which is so strange given that I've lived here for eight years now! It was so nice exploring it with someone who is completely new to the area. We stumbled across a really cool looking reclamation yard as well as a cute cafe nestled amongst the houses. Just as we were walking back to our bus we found this walk and both gasped, I love finding people that can appreciate a good wall as much as I do ;)
