Leopard print faux fur coat: New Look//Dress: tba//Wedges: New Look//Ring: Gogo Phillip//Bag: Mulberry

Today we went for a civilised walk around Richmond, after I'd spent the morning filling in the holes in the wall from where our old boiler was (and yes I did do this in my tba dress, stylish DIYing only please). D is now attempting to put some blinds up, which isn't a complete disaster like I thought it would be.
We finished with a nice meal at Cote, and I indulged in one of those blogging stereotypes and snapped a photo of our starter (I'm hungry just looking at it again).

And finally, I couldn't not buy this when I went to Ikea last week- yes it was in the children's' section (it's a night light I suppose) but it now has pride of place on our staircase. And it's really not a nod to Valentine's.

  1. Your dress is so pretty, I love the top part of it (I was going to say lacey, but I'm not sure if it is?) Anyway it's really nice and a really nice colour! Richmond looks really lovely, I've not really been there before as it's a bit of a pain to get to, but my boyfriend's brother may be buying a house around there. The food looks absolutely delicious, I've not had my breakfast yet (oops) and looking at the food is making me hungry! xo

    1. It's not lace, I'm not quite sure what it is exactly! You should go to Richmond, it's still very quaint and village-y in feel :) xx

  9. Lovely outfit - really nice colour palette and that kitten badge is adorable! :) I think it's lucky I live nowhere near an IKEA or I'd have random lights like that all over the place and no money in the bank. Haha x

  23. So many good things about this post :P I love your dress and faux fur coat! Still on the hunt for my perfect faux fur sadly! And how amazing does your food look?! xx

  24. DIY should always be done stylishly, of course. I'm now having a nosy at tba's shop, some gorgeous items there - although quite splurge-y compared to my normal spending habits! I'll keep it bookmarked if I fancy a payday/bonus treat! I also really like food pictures on blogs, even if they do make me hungry! x
