There is something that I still find so enjoyable about dressing down an evening dress for day-time attire and what better way to do it than with a classic knee length dress as inspired by Brigitte Bardot from Gorgeous Couture's latest collections and of course, I couldn't resist getting Brody's cute little face in some shots too!

Last weekend I wore this outfit for a family birthday meal in Alderley Edge, which I posted on my Instagram here and received a few lovely comments on my ensemble. So, this is my second post on 'how to style a blanket cape', with my first being available here.

My second look is styling a Chiara Fashion cape (similar here and here) over a H&M shirt dress with gorgeous flat leather knee boots from Daniel Footwear and some added bling with my Emozioni necklace. Of the two looks I think that this is perhaps a little more dressy, whilst still remaining on the more casual side, making it perfect for everyday wear.

Which has been your favourite of the two looks?

Santorini | Let The Wedding Planning Commence...

Over the coming days you may notice more Instagram pictures popping up in your feed from myself than usual, as the impending wedding planning journey is about to commence with a trip to Santorini! If you are not already, you can follow me on Instagram here or by searching @lurchhoundloves.

It has long forever been a dream of mine to get married abroad with a picturesque view behind me with friends and family around me and ever since my friend introduced me to the idea of the picturesque delights of Santorini - which I had ignorantly never heard much about before - I instantly fell in love with it's white washed walls and blue accents upon a quick Google search and I soon had my heart set on at least exploring this beautiful Greek island as a possibility for my big day.

If anyone has been to Santorini before it would be great to get any recommendations for whilst we are there - so please feel free to comment below or tweet me @CharlotteLewis_ as it would be very much greatly appreciated :)

Brody's New Heated Dog Bed

Long Haired Blonde Lurcher Bed - Lurch Hound LovesBlonde Long Haired Lurcherlight hair lurcher rescue on lurch hound loves fashion blogLurcher Pet Bed Review from Swell Pets

It is not just us that will feel the impending Winter chill in the next coming months, but our furry best friends will no doubt feel the drop in temperature too. As a Lurcher Brody is a little on the slim side and doesn't have that much meat on his chest, so to be able to treat him to a heated pet bed is hopefully truly divine experience for him (he is one pampered pooch!)

We got Brody his heated quilted thermo bed from Swell Pets, a new online pet store that I have discovered, and we went for the large size, which is perfect for Brody as he is a rather large dog breed. The site has a great selection of pet supplies for both dogs and cats and I was really impressed with both the price and that the bed arrived via next day delivery when I ordered at 2.30pm (ish) in the afternoon. Plus, if the bed had of been too small for Brody they also offer 60 days to return unwanted items - which is great for people like me who find it hard to fit in a post office trip between full-time working hours and busy weekends.

Girls Night In Inspiration

Girls Night In Inspiration - Lurch Hound Loves Fashion Blog
Images sourced via Pinterest - You can follow my account here for more inspiration

Usually, you can find me with the girls heading for a few afternoon drinks in Sunny Manchester, but as the days are getting shorter and the weather definitely colder, staying warm and snug at home if my haunt of choice, making girls nights in more desirable in the run up to Christmas (it will also save you some extra pennies too!)

I am guessing I am not the only one who feels that way right?! When was the last time that you had a girls night in and traded your heels for the comfort of your slippers?...
