Joules Quilted Navy Jacket

An oldie but a goodie for me – my Joules quilted jacket!

I got this jacket a few years ago (I believe as a Christmas gift) and still reach for it constantly when it is cold out. It is such a classic style that is great for casual everyday where. Also, mine has worn really well over the years that I have had it. I grabbed for it when I was taking Boss out for a quick walk the other day.

I guess since I was on the British theme with my outfit it makes sense I paired my jacket with my green Hunter wellies and my Radley umbrella (another Christmas gift)! Back when I was little and living in England we would go to the New Forest a lot. I would always wear wellies so that I could walk through the streams, mud and puddles! It was always great fun! Another great jacket by a British brand and one of my other favourites is this one! It has great hand warmer pockets!

Umbrella – now on sale!

This is one of my favourite streets in Athens! I love the wonky cobbled pavements as well as the redish brick. All the houses on this street are beautiful – they have so much character and I enjoy looking at them as I drive/walk past! Years ago, when Boss was a puppy, I would walk him down this road. As soon as we got near the main road, at the end, he would stop dead in his tracks and just sit down! He would not move. I then had to scoop him up and carry him home!

I hope you all have a nice weekend!

Zara Dress and Camel Coat

Hello and Happy Monday,

You can never go wrong with a Camel Coat and it should be a classic pieces in your wardrobe. Let me show you how I styled mine.

But first – I hope you all had a nice Easter weekend! I spent it with my husband, in-laws and grandparent in-laws (is that a thing – i’m not sure of the proper name) so it was very relaxing. We had a big family lunch at Clarke’s Standard which is a new restaurant in downtown Athens (post coming soon) and then a home cooked lunch on Sunday! All very delicious.

I wanted to share with you a dress I picked up for a steal when I was in London. It was £12.99! We were up in London, on our way to dinner one evening and browsing some of the shops, when I found it. I paired the dress with a classic camel coat that has a fun pop of red to it, my OTK black boots and a toiletry bag that I use as a clutch.

Coat – 50% off! // Dress – I looked all over for the dress with no luck (similar, similar, similar) // Boots // Clutch – I have the medium size// Necklace (similar, similar)

Since I bought the coat in one size up I can also fit a blazer underneath. Therefore, I wore my tuxedo blazer that I got for a bargain here! I like that the blazer gives me the option to cover my shoulders even after taking my coat off. Especially, because this dress just has thin spaghetti straps.

I hope you all have a great week!

All Saints Leather Jacket & Phantom Bag

Happy Friday!

This All Saints leather jacket was a Christmas present from my husband which I love because it is such a classic piece. The leather is so soft on it that it already feels worn in.  All Saints and leather jackets are synonymous with each other and I can understand why! I love pairing a leather biker jacket with a classic white t-shirt and jeans. I added these black flats because I thought the spikes gave something a little bit extra to the outfit. Finally, I added a pop of colour (but still tried to stay somewhat neutral) with this Phantom bag. This bag was a purchase a while back (I bought it preloved after selling a Fendi 2jours bag – find out more here) and I enjoy that it is one of those bags you can just thrown stuff into. It also holds a lot!

What do you guys have planned for the weekend?

Lots of Love,

Buffy

Walking into the weekend like….

All Saints Skirt

I saw this All Saints skirt while I was doing some Christmas shopping a few days before Christmas. However, I decided to wait thinking it may go on sale after Christmas. I lucked out! I ordered it online in January at 20% off. It is a great black denim skirt that wraps around making it a little bit different. I paired it with my new favourite shirt which was a gift from my mum and it is the softest most comfortable shirt I have. They make it in a dress but I know the shirt borderlines on looking like pyjamas so I thought the dress crossed that line.

My Stuart Weitzman OTK boots are my most worn, favourite boots year after year and so it should be no surprise I paired this skirt and top with them. I just think they go with everything and make such a statement in a simplistic way.

Wifey Grey T-Shirt

I received this Wifey t-shirt for Christmas and it has quickly become one of my favourite shirts to wear because it is so soft. See how I styled it below!

This gold bracelet was a Christmas gift from my sister (my husband received the guys version). The coordinates on the front are for the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World Florida where we got engaged and then the back has the date we got married. Such a cool gift! The Union Jack charm was a gift I got in my stocking (also love this one). It is funny because my sister lives in England and she has the American Flag charm!

I hope you all have a great week!

The Royal Peasant

IMG_0967OUTSIDE

Being from England and living in America (especially the South) has its obstacles; you can’t get good Pimms, you can’t have a classic rainy, cold ‘summer’ BBQ and you certainly can’t go for a stroll on the Heath! However, now you can have some good ‘ole pub food and The Royal Peasant fits the bill!

This small British Pub tucked away in the heart of Five Points is where you will find everything from half pints to crisps to bangers and mash….as well as some fish and chips! What more could a Brit ask for?!

The other afternoon my husband and I headed over there for a late lunch on my day off. We both had the Burger and a salad to share. I also recommend the house crisps, chicken curry and fish and chips (basically you can’t go wrong here!) While you are at it don’t forget to order a pint (of cider)…or half!

This is Corey’s mad face when I tell him I have to take a picture before starting!

I LOVE these sandals! They go with everything and are so comfortable. The price tag is also one that does not make you gasp. I was heading to lunch with a friend so kept everything very casual but you could easy pair these sandals with a dress, blazer, and clutch to make it a little more fancy. The fact that these shoes are so versatile makes them a great piece to have in your wardrobe.

I hope you are all have a great week! Thanks for stopping by.

I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of nude pumps and I finally found them! Nude pumps are great because they literally go with everything and they make your legs look longer – as long as you get the right colour. I love these pumps because they are really comfortable and have a classic shape. I paired them with a Zara suede dress and a bright bag for a pop of colour.

Have a great weekend!

Bob Bob Ricard…

My husband (Corey) and I always try and find a new (fancy/different) restaurant to try whenever we venture back over the pond to good ol’ England. Last time it was his pick – Hawksmoor Seven Dials in Covent Garden (very good!). This time it was my turn to choose and Bob Bob Ricard was top of my list, it had been for about the last 4 months! I was excited not only to try the Russian inspired British menu it had on offer but also wear the new dress Corey had got me for my birthday.

We took the train up to London, looking as elegant as possible (as required), and made our way to Piccadilly Circus.

Bob Bob Ricard (BBR) was nestled between side streets right past the Golden Square (a historic square in the heart of soho). We were immediately greeted and sat as we walked in the dimly lit entrance way. Our table was a small booth close to the bar and it, of course, had the signature “Press for Champagne” button which I did end up pressing (cheeky – how can you not?). The interior of this place was ornate with a strong Art Deco theme. One word – Beautiful!

What followed was a great meal with some really tasty cocktails and drinks!

We started with -18 degrees Voht-kah (said in a Russian accent) shots before really taking a good look at the menu.

Apéritifs were ordered – I had a dirty Martini and Corey had a glass of white wine.

When the starters came we dug right in. We over ordered and so there was so much to choose from – Waldorf Salad, Sea bass Ceviche with avocado, oysters, and Truffled Siberian Pelmeni (a Russian inspired dish of dumplings filled with crab and lobster).

In between all the deliciousness I pushed the “button” and received a lovely glass of champagne while Corey decided to try the “oyster martini.”

Pudding consisted of the BBR signature Chocolate Glory (to share) and one last cocktail – the passion fruit & Elderflower martini. Sadly the video I took of the Pudding will not load on here but here is what it looks like.

After dinner we headed to London Bridge, over by the Shard, to meet some friends for one last drink at a local pub before taking the last train home!

Overall a great night! Thanks for reading.
