The H&M / Urban Outfitters Edit.

Today, Kieran and I decided to venture somewhere I hadn’t been in ages - Dorchester. I thought it would be a good excuse to wear in my new H&M imitation suede tan boots, which are perfect for the transition from winter to spring (even if it is slightly wishful thinking!) 





I decided to pair them with my new blue ripped skinny jeans and Aztec print kimono (also H&M) and my new long sleeved crop from Urban Outfitters. The kimono is perfect for this seasons 70s trend and really gives a new lease of life to basic items as it goes with so many things - plus it adds a little extra warmth which is definitely necessary at the moment!




Once we got to Dorchester, we visited its Curiosity Centre full of vintage finds and trinkets. I spotted too many things I liked - but resisted the urge to take home half the warehouse! We stopped for tea, before heading over to Vivo Lounge for lunch. 




The restaurant itself is part of a chain, but the name varies depending on location. There’s Conto lounge and Circo lounge near me, all with the same boudoir and luxe atmosphere. The menu also remains the same - which is handy if you have a personal favourite! 




I opted for a grilled halloumi salad topped with roasted butternut squash, salad and sweet potato and basil falafels. I’m a huge lover of anything sweet potato and falafels, so this seemed like the obvious choice! Kieran went for a pulled pork ciabatta with fries on the side, which he informed me was super hot - and therefore just perfect for his liking! 




Whilst I loved the salad, I can’t say I was too keen on the halloumi which seemed quite rubbery in texture. That being said, the falafels were great and definitely my favourite part of the meal - which I’ll be attempting to replicate at home for sure!


Love,
