Sky Garden

Sky Garden is the highest garden in London, that offers the most stunning views!
 Forget paying for the london Eye and check out a spectacular view for free!

Towering high above all of the other buildings, Sky Garden literally stands out like a sore thumb! (I do mean that as a compliment, well kind of.)

The gardens are quite small, but who am I kidding, I was there purely for the view and some lunch. If refreshments are on offer, I'm partaking!!!

I put together a late 50s sweater girl look, that turned out looking rather Air hostess  in the best possible way, so I just went with it!

I sewed up the skirt a week before so that I could incorporate orange into the look. I don't usually wear orange at all, but I am loving it with this skirt, the print feels a little Hawaiian to me.

The fabric is a stretch cotton sateen that was an end of roll scrap I got cheaply at my local fabric shop. I wasn't sure what do do with it, and when in doubt, another skirt is always a good, wearable option for me.

Shoes from Agnes and Norman, that are suprisingly comfortable, I can't really wear many high heels, but this brand seems to agree with my feet.

Look at those views!

This is my first try at a French twist and it isn't half bad. A very chic style once you have it balanced precariously atop your head.

There are two restaurants in the gardens and also a café. I stopped for lunch and a cocktail in the Darwin brasserie.
 I had to get a cocktail once I saw that it would match my outfit. That just makes me happy!

A Cocktail should definitely match ones ensemble for true vintage elegance! And then sip slowly holding your drink up so that everyone can admire your exquisite colour coordination!

Let's all raise a glass to summer!




  1. Please can I come next time?! You look divine, and the cocktail is a winner...

  2. What a fabulous outfit! I love the beautiful combination of aqua and tangerine. They marry so well and give off such a happy vibe. You look terrific, my dear, and I will joyfully raise a glass to summer with you!

    1. I'm happy that the colour combo works so well, im never sure when trying something new if it is going to work.

  3. I'm terrified of heights so I don't think I'll be going to this restaurant any time soon, but I love your outfit and use of orange! It's a colour I've had nothing to do with until this year and it's so uplifting and fun to wear. And if that's your first attempt at a french twist consider me incredibly impressed!
