Best of British: Lazy Sunday

Lazy Sunday

Naughty, Naughty, Naughty!

I know... I know... Best of British should have finished yesterday but I've been a little sidetracked with the annoying business of 'real life' so it is will be with us for another week. Trust me, this is a good thing. I have three lovely giveaways for you and aswell as the final guest post and an interview with darling Nadinoo.

Lazy Sunday
 Dress - TBA at Asos, Shoes - Cop Copine Brooch - Vintage

After the festivities for the Royal Wedding this weekend, I just wanted to kick off my shoes and relax with a pot of tea and a stack of books. How good do those pies at Canteen look? I can't wait to eat there next weekend when I'm in London. We have recently shuffled the furniture around and planted window boxes in our living room so the bay window is my favourite place to sit. Well, it beats my windowless matchbox of a 'study' any day.

I couldn't help but utilize my Edward VIII teacup, which is usually display purposes only. I'm not a crazy royalist but I do have a soft spot for old Ed VIII. He has been my favourite King, ever since I read that he once vaulted out of a window at Buck Pal, ran across the park and hailed a black cab (A KING TAKING A TAXI!!!) All to visit Mrs. Simpson instead of meeting with his private secretary. And then I discovered that he referred to his duties as 'Kinging'. Plus he abdicated the throne for love, what a dear.

I've been wearing this TBA dress non stop since the delivery arrived from Asos, albeit 4 days late... tisk, tisk. Despite being AW10 I think its perfect for Spring weather, especially with my new Cop Copine sandals.

How did you spend the Holiday Weekend?

  7. Kinging? That's so awesome! I must say I am definitely a Royalist and even more of an Anglophile after watching the wedding. And so I am very happy Best of British is continuing for another week!

    p.s That TBA dress is amazing.

  17. Nooo but Edward rather liked the Nazis and everything :( As far as I know, Wallis' had Nazi friends which was another reason why he had to abdicate...
