Where better to snap some of my favourite outfits from Wallis than Kenwood House? I knew nothing about the English Heritage property until I drove past it on the way to Hampstead village. Intrigued, I made a promise to head out and discover it properly with my bestie, Carrie.
I must have completely missed the memo because everyone in London and his/her dog were there on the day we decided to meet up for catch ups and obligatory photo-taking! It’s completely free to wander into the grounds of and is the perfect backdrop for a picnic. Spread out your rug, sit back and pretend Kenwood is your very own.
Floral dress or Palm print co-ord?
Right, let’s talk clothes! I’ve put together two outfits from Wallis. One is your traditional, girly garden-party look and one is a mix-n-match co-ord (that isn’t actually a co-ord). Either can be worn to a wedding (I have a BIG one coming up next weekend but I’ll be wearing something a tad more special) or to a summer party or, hey, even to work. Which is more you?
Palm prints may be a bit ‘done’ but this bamboo blouse and skirt both have a fresh take on last season’s leaf so look sophisticated and grown up. I took a long-line blouse, tied it up and unbuttoned it low with a midi skirt to give the impression of a co-ord that was totally meant to be. As for the mini dress, I can never tire of a colour pop and when worn with matching accessories, it works without screaming too loudly. Summer events, show yourselves, I’ve got things to wear!
