The Floral Co-ord // Then And Now

 Floral co-ord // Monki // here (aff*)

Let me tell you a (rather uninteresting to most of you I imagine) story about my fashion journey. My mum decided that at the ripe old age of seven I was old enough to choose myself an outfit. I went a bit go bold or go home and opted for a garish floral co-ord. Big bright pink and orange flowers printed on a matching white blouse and skirt combo.

Little did I know that come 2019 I'd be very in fashun and so I find myself in the position where I've essentially replicated my very first outfit over twenty years later.

Seven-year-old or twenty-eight-year-old, you simply cannot go wrong with a floral co-ord.



The new co-ord in question is slightly less garish with more muted colours and smaller flowers, but makes me feel every inch as sassy as I felt in the first one (which, as a seven-year-old girl very much into the Spice Girls was off the richter scale levels of sassy).

It's nice to take outfit photos and put them on my blog circa 2014 style and this post is nothing deeper than a little girl and a grown woman feeling sassy as hell.

AD // Where To Visit With Your York Pass


I was gifted two York passes by Visit York for the creation of this post, but all opinions and scary photos are my own.

A couple of weeks ago myself and CallMeAmy'sOH popped along to York for the day; only an hour's drive from where we live in Hull and with a beautifully historic city centre it's a bloomin' lovely place for a day out.

We went armed with our York passes, intent on squeezing as much out of our time there as possible. The weather and our own poor timekeeping/preference for not rushing around like loonies meant we didn't achieve as much as we'd planned, but we still had a lovely day so here I am putting together a (v achievable) itinerary for a day out in York with a York pass.

Yep, I'm sure you could start earlier/cram if you like, but there's having a nice day being touristy then there's having a very tiring day dragging yourself round everywhere trying to do everything and not actually enjoying it. Trust me, you'll get your money's worth with your York pass anyway. 




11am // York Minster 

Pretty much the most famous landmark in York, the Minster is pretty spectacular. I do love me a good old church and it certainly doesn't disappoint. The standard pass gains you entry into the church, with the VIP pass also gaining you access to the tower. Very tired legs for the rest of the week, you have been warned. 

12pm // York's Chocolate Story

I have a confession here; we had planned to visit York's Chocolate Story, but we may have become a little sidetracked by the shops and each bought a pair of shoes instead (it would appear it's impossible for two clothes obsessed idiots to have a day out without buying something). However this was definitely on our list and involves free chocolate so what's not to like? 

1pm // The York Dungeon

By far our favourite attraction of the day, The York Dungeon is a must visit if you're in York. I jumped so badly I threw my umbrella at one of the actors and you're constantly that level of scared that also just makes you lol a lot. It's still one of my life goals to work there someday (hi boss of York Dungeon, if you're reading this give me a job please, thank you.)

3pm // ASK Italian

A perk I didn't expect to see on the list was a free meal (excluding drinks and limited to certain dishes) at ASK Italian. The restaurant it's valid for is in a ridiculously beautiful building and even if it wasn't, who's going to pass on free food?


As I said, I'm sure you could fit more in if you're more hardcore than us, so some other fab things to do on the list (that I've done previously so can recommend) are Clifford's Tower, JORVIK Viking Centre, York Castle Museum; we were also hoping to do a York City Cruise, but unfortunately it was absolutely chucking it down on the day we visited! 

Have you ever visited York?
