Have you ever seen trees this colour before? I certainly hadn’t! Every day on my way to work, I would pass this tree as I rode the bus. It’s a weird feeling; looking at something so many times, but never actually standing right in front of it. After weeks and weeks of watching this tree bloom and slowly begin to decay, I couldn’t take it anymore. Arming myself with my trusty Nikon camera and “a ticket for two please” I was soon on my way to sharing this special place with my love. And it certainly didn’t disappoint.

Slap bang in the middle of winter, the skies decided to treat us to… warm weather! You wouldn’t believe the wonders it did for our moods! Keeping with my ‘fruit fashion’ obsession I dressed in this pin-up inspired cherry print dress by Chicwish. I kept accessories to a minimum; instead choosing to focus on wearing bright red lipstick – my favourite! Now, as I bus past this tree, I smile to myself. It makes me think of an afternoon spent with my guy, laughing and pulling silly faces for the camera.

  2. You look divine! Amazingly, I don’t own a cherry print dress, because I think I’m waiting for just the right one. This looks darling on you, and your hair looks lovely in the milkmaid braids!

  4. So pretty! The flowers behind you in the distance match your dress well. And your hair and makeup totally match this ’50s look. One of my favorite lipsticks is called cherry bomb haha.
