Get your home ready for summer

What I bought this week...

I often share the things i'm currently loving on Instagram and I thought I would start sharing more of 'what I bought this week' here too so that you have the links to shop direct. I always hate it when I see something I like and I can never find a link so hopefully this makes it easier!

1.My new favourite bag

As Spring arrives, I have been having a look online at summer clothes to refresh my wardrobe. When it comes to fashion I like to keep things simple and muted. So during the warmer months I wear a lot of white linen with hints of blue and tan accessories.

When I saw this bag in one of Zara's ads, I knew it was going to be my new summer bag!

For just under £30 you get this beautiful bag plus two different crossbody straps (one faux tan leather and one canvas) and a tan purse.

2. My gardening must have

Yes, you read that correctly! I love spending time in the garden, growing my own flowers and vegetables but of course I have to do it in an aesthetic way!

I often pick up vintage terracotta pots for my indoor plants but I struggled to find matching trays. All I could find for a long time were new rich terracotta trays which didn't match. That was until I came across these perfect little rustic terracotta trays and now I use them for all of my indoor pots.

I never used to like house plants but now I love to style them at The Barn in different areas like the seating area below. Depending on the season I will introduce seasonal flowers such as hyacinths and tulips.

3.My favourite kind of candle

If you follow me on Instagram you'll probably already know I love having a candle lit at The Barn. It makes a space feel so cosy, warm and welcoming. What I don't always like about some candles is the packaging. However at the moment i've got a candle from The White Company which fits in well with its clean and subtle design.

But i've recently found something really sweet which combines two of my favourites things. A candle... in a terracotta pot!

This tiny little candle is just perfect! I sometimes style it on a narrow shelf or alongside my terracotta pots on the ottoman at The Barn.

Let me know what you've got your eye on this week!
