WWW // R Gets All Dressed Up

What We Wore - Dressed To The Nines

Not long ago I joined A, J and E in Birmingham for a R~A~J~E retreat weekend. On one of our lovely evenings together we popped on our glad rags on and headed out. Having to pack several outfits into a small weekend bag led to some creative thinking and I went for my leather-ette skirt, silver crop top and nude court shoes - all versatile pieces that I could rework throughout the weekend.

When all else fails I usually end up embracing my minimalist sensibilities and stripping it back to simple, classic basics and understated accessories. While not ground breaking, I felt great in this outfit, and after all, that's what style is all about. 

Top: H&M // Skirt: Zara // Shoes: Jones // Bag: Kurt Geiger // Watch: Skagen // Rings: Vintage // Necklace: Present from my Favourite.

Pins of the Week - Italian

Pins of the Week - Italian 

It took me a few years to appreciate Italian cuisine. Growing up Anglo-Indian means I was never far from a flavour-filled tandoori dish, hearty pilaf or at least a stack of curry puffs. Thanks to this I never found Italian food quite punchy enough - a bit too simple. However my Favourite is a huge fan of Italian food and after nearly four years of eating it with him, I have fallen in love (with him too). Now, one of my favourite ways to spend a Friday night is making pasta, rustling up amatriciana and tearing into some buffalo mozzarella - it turns out the key to enjoying Italian is fresh, organic, quality ingredients and good company. 

I have spent some time rather indulgetly trawling Pinterest for some inspiration for our next Italian feast and I thought you may enjoy the mouth watering results. 

For more food, style and lifestyle inspiration head over to the R~A~J~E boards.

Have a very happy weekend.
