THE Gingham Dress of the Summer!

THE Gingham Dress of the Summer!


Hey Guys, 

No, your eyes are not deceiving you, this is yet another post about all things Gingham! 
I have been LOVING this trendy print for a while, and yet again H&M gets it right with this gorgeous dress. 






The ruffles, the print, its a Blogger's dream! And to top it all off, this lovely number even has pockets! I don't know why you are still reading this post, you should be off buying it! 




OK, great, you're back! So I decided to style the dress up with my trusty oversized, thin gold hoops, which slightly dresses it down with a more urban vibe, but not sacrificing elegance! They also draw attention to the neck and shoulders, to emphasise the majestic ruffle detail. 




This dainty silver necklace from JewelleryBox.co.uk is the perfect simple accessory. I love that it is reminiscent of a Tiffany's necklace!
I kept my make up pretty neutral to as there is already a lot of detail within the outfit. I am wearing this pretty pink Kylie Lip Kit in "Candy K". 





These are my two bag options for this outfit. You may have seen them feature in my "Primark Summer Bag Picks". The large straw bag is a great daytime bag, great for carrying lots of bits. The gorgeous pink embroidered side bag is more on an evening piece. The dusty pink colour really compliments the blue.

The Perfect Self Portrait Dress DUPE!

The Perfect Self Portrait Dress DUPE!


Hey Guys, 

This month I decided to change up my online shopping habits. For so long, Boohoo.com had been my go-to site, but this time I went a lil cray and hit up Pretty Little Thing!

I got the idea after seeing this gorgeous dress on fellow Blogger Scarlett London's Twitter header. It looked just like a Self Portrait dress, but at a fraction of the price!


Shop this post:







Self Portrait dresses can be seen everywhere, on celebs, bloggers and YouTubers alike. I am sure the brand first came onto my radar from Victoria of InTheFrow.com (who happens to be one of their biggest fans).





Self Portrait dresses are gorgeous and a great investment for a timeless, wardrobe staple. However, this gorge PLT dupe is a cheaper alternative for those (like me) on a budget, or those who are looking for something quick and easy to impress at a one-off occasion. 











I paired my Caya dress with some little Matalan sandals with glitter detail and a comfy heel- perfect for Summer! My Marc b Knightsbridge bag added an extra level of Luxe as it so closely resembles a Chanel bag. 






I am hoping to rock this cute LBD over the summer. Top tip for you taller ladies- a pair of little black shorts will go a long way with this number! 

Would you rock this dress?

My Primark Summer Bag Picks



Hey Guys, 

I hope you are enjoying this intense, sweaty, hot atmosphere, also known as "Summer" here in the UK! 
I don't know about you, but I have been loving this weather recently! The inner Fashion Blogger in me is screaming "Gingham", "Maxi Dresses" and "Basket Bags"!!! I have loved shopping (/over shopping) for summer this year, and of course, I made a stop in Primark! Primark are killing it with bags at the mo, so I wanted to show you this trio of beauties!
For a more in-depth look of these and more, have a cheeky watch of my latest YouTube video - Primark Summer Haul 2017!



Embroidered Floral Bag, £6.00





Parrot Bag, £9.00








Osman managed to capture the exact moment these lovely older ladies stopped our shoot to admire my bag! I named him Bertie- these are Bertie's first fans!



Basket Bag, £9.00








Which one is your fav?

Gingham and Leather

Gingham and Leather


I am LOVING the Gingham trend at the moment. We can see it everywhere from High Street to Designer- this summer, we're wearing our picnic blankets! 





I wanted to grunge-down the gingham just a tad by pairing it with a cropped leather jacket. I know, I know, some people will be sweating at just the thought of this pairing in Summer - but we all know this UK weather cannot be trusted, and its always great to have a lil jacket just incase!



This jacket was a H&M sale find, at just £15.00! The Gucci belt dupe was an Ebay find. 




This cute stretch-denim pencil skirt was a lil Boohoo find towards the end of last summer - but I have only just been able to wear it now!

 And of course- the Gingham top! Was a Primark bargain at the start of this summer. Primark are well on-board this Gingham boat! Have a hunt around your local and I'm sure you won't be disappointed!

Feeling Frilly in H&M

Feeling Frilly in H&M



Hey Guys, 

The Ruffles trend - I have been wanting to hop on this wagon for a good few months. Since Blogger's went crazy for it, and I literally fell in love with Zara, I haven't been able to get frills off my brain!



Shop this post:












Trusty H&M to the rescue! One of my go-to stores (alongside Primark), H&M always does me proud. This time I stepped inside the brand new (fancy as f) store in Covent Garden.









Armed with 2 baskets full of the BEST sale stuff everrrr (no exaggeration) I was soon walking out with these 2 outfits! And just in time for a blog shoot - how convenient!












I love how light and airy this top is and feels; perfect for summer! It was also super easy to style and comes in a load of other colours! 

How would you style a frilly top? 



Top: H&M, £12.99
Dress: H&M, £12.00 (sale)
Trousers: H&M, £8.99 (sale)
