Kensington Dreaming

October really was such a crazy month, I still have so many photos to share and so much to spill. Going forwards I’m bringing the sibling in and working with him on a lot of style photography and filming to give the other half a break from it. A few weeks back Nick and I wandered round the North Laines, making our way through Saturday markets and little shops. Grabbing something to eat and trying to cure someones hangover. We took a stroll down one of my favourite streets, complete with rows of white town houses and pastel doors. One day…

It’s starting to get chillier by the day here, so I jumped at the chance to throw on my new trench coat. It’s a Banana Republic number, and whilst it wasn’t super cheap, it’s the closest I’ll ever get to a little number from Burbs AND it’s available in the petite range. It’s so hard to find decent coats that fit my small frame but I have a feeling that I may have been converted going forwards.

I’ve also got a serious floppy hat and striped jumper infatuation going on right now. I’ve always known I had a bit of a thing for the hat/stipe combo, but recently I’ve found myself stocking up on variants of the two in hopes I have enough of a collection for one each day of the week. If nothing else if will stop my Zara crop that I wear on a semi-daily basis from falling apart.

    That's a lovely coat πŸ™‚ I know what you mean, it is harder to buy clothes when you are petite. I'm 5ft2 so sometimes finding coats to fit are a bit of an issue. x

    Absolutely stunning Suzie, you look divine x

    You look beautiful, Suzie! The outfit reminds me of the Classic Burberry look. Love the watch also, saw it in John Lewis the other day and was debating in whether I should get it. It looks great on, though!
