It’s the time of year where your diary starts to fill up with dinners, barbecues, birthday drinks and engagement parties. This outfit I find ideal for long summer evenings on the terrace, preferably with a cocktail in hand! Pair a pretty floral dress with chunky¬†jewelry, a tuxedo jacket and a tousled side braid for a fun, but polished look.

One of my very favourite places to sit out and enjoy the sunshine and a glass of wine in London is the rooftop terrace at Orrery. Bliss!

Over the bank holiday weekend, I decided to take some time simply to enjoy the sunshine and explore the delights of my neighbourhood. I moved to Kingston at the end of August last year, but have been so busy since that I’ve barely had any time for exploration. With London looking so beautiful in the sunshine, I decided it was about time I pulled on a summer dress and took a walk through the wisteria scented streets of Kingston and Richmond.
