Oh momma, I wanna go surfin'

I couldn't wait to wear this adorable two piece by a lovely new brand I discovered on Instagram called 'Lily and the Lamplight'. I can't even remember how I found it, I think I was just browsing the 'Explore' part of Instagram and found it there! I instantly fell in love with this adorable print. I messaged the lovely designer and asked very kindly if she wouldn't mind making the shorts into a skirt for me- As I figure I'd get more wear out it that way. Everything is handmade to order which I love, just like other brands I love and support such as Mod Dolly. It's so important to support creative brands like this as the quality and creativity you get is really quite wonderful and rare.

Two Piece- Lily and the Lamplight | Sneakers- New Look | Satchel- Camden Market

I felt this location was perfect for this look- even though it's actually canoes not surf boards, but you get the idea! It's at the local scout camp and so there were people wandering past with all their camping gear wondering why I was hanging around their canoes. Apologies for how horrendous my hair looks- it's like a really bad ombre job (it's actually from where my hair used to be red). It's in desperate need of a re-dye but having such long hair means it is such a mission to home dye sometimes so I never get round to it. Looking at these snaps though has definitely given me the motivational wake up call to do it now!

I am loving two-pieces at the moment and the possibilities that come with them. Lots of jumpers, cardigans, shirts and trousers can suddenly find a new lease of life when you mix and match them with a good two-piece (I even bought a pair of jeans!) Oh the possibilities!


  1. Oh, I absolutely love this. The fabric is perfect, I'm just never going to be brave enough for a two piece.

  2. That two piece is spectacular, such a gorgeous print x


  3. You look so stinking cute!! I always love these two piece co-ords but I don't think I can pull them off. Totally adorable on you, though.
