This summer my wardrobe took on a more relaxed feel with light linens, clean cottons and Italian countryside influences. Simplistic tees and mummy style cropped jeans tended to be this summers go to outfit... Along with a plethora of midi-length dresses in natural colours and rustic fabrics sporting vintage style tortoiseshell buttons.

I had a slight fling with the ever-popular mules and indulged in gold statement jewellery... && of course still showcased my love for pearls

Going Dotty Over Dots
 

How can I not go dotty over this trend?!?! Tbh it’s not a new trend and if I’m reallyyyy honest i’ve never been a huge huge fan of polka dots. Never hated the trend but didn’t really buy it too much. 

However things have changed. 😑 *purse cries*. This year we are seeing a lot more black dots on white fabric opposed to the normal white dots on black fabric and I’m loving it.

These dots also seem to be a lot larger than recent years giving a nod to 1950’s/1960's and all things girly with cinched in waists and flirty frills!! 

I’m also loving the new choice of fabric used to showcase the dots. The majority of pieces I’ve been looking at are made from light silks and chiffon’s all designed and tailored to highlight the a feminine form.

 

So below are some of my favourites from high street styles to designer investments

Denim Dreams

This Little Dress Is One Of The Sweetest Denim Items I Have Ever Owned. There's Only A Few Elements To This Dress But The Over Sized Shoulder Frills And Cinched In Waist With Figure Hugging Belt Really Make It A Winner For Me.

I've Teamed This Cutie With Superga 2790 Espadrille Flatform Trainers Which Helps Prolong Your Legs Whilst Keeping It Casual... I'm Not Sure What It Is About Denim Dresses, I Always Feel They Make A Girl Look Dumpy Without Heels... But Maybe That's Just Me! 

Such An Easy Look If You're Going On Holiday Or Are Blessed With A Sunny Day Here In London!

Summer Time Sadness

British summer days are a sweet cocktail of fresh sunny mornings,  cloudy afternoons and light showers breathing life into the beautiful English countryside. But a little rain never stopped us from having fun! let's be honest we love any excuse to get the sunnies out and sport a oversized wicker bag even if it is accompanied with an umbrella. 

Last Saturday I thought I'd throw on my frilly floral wrap dress and hope for the best. I sat next to the window taking in the sunshine whilst curling my hair in the hope to achieve perfect relaxed waves... typically the minute I stepped outside I was treated to wind swept light showers,  but despite this the sun shone throughout the day filtered by a cloudy blanket making a dreamy musky atmosphere. So whilst walking around west Kensington trying to find the perfect vegan brunch spot we came across a beautiful row of mews and took the opportunity to capture this dress from H&M... I know H&M who knew & it's back in stock!

1987

Ahhh the aviator jacket!! I am totally in love with this trend and was so happy when I finally got my hands on my own oversized Aviator jacket. So warm, so cool and such a statement piece.

I chose to brave the winter weather and ditch the tights, teaming my racer print body with my mini wrap skort. Skorts aren't usually my thing however this one fitted like a dream and featured the ever so popular eyelet detailing, which helped tie in my other sliver metal elements throughout the look.
