My Style: Festival-Inspired Floral Love Affair

My Style Festival gap 2 My Style: Festival Inspired Floral Love Affair %tag

What is your go-to festival look?

Mine would probably be skinny jeans/denim shorts, a vintage rock tee, a bold floral kimono, some wellies and a few statement pieces of jewellery that I would probably have picked up from Primark. For this season, with the weather being a little warmer, I thought I would channel my girlie side and opt for a fun and flirty dress, pops of colour, of course sensible but cool footwear, and a statement headpiece, well it wouldn’t be a festival without wearing something silly now would it.

What I love about this look, other than how happy this tropical print shirtdress makes me from Gap, even when it starts to rain, has to be how comfortable I am not wearing wellington boots. I have a problem with not being able to find wellies that fit me well, they are always too big around the ankle, I seem to not be able to walk properly and they make my feet ache, maybe it is because I haven’t invested in quality, but I was so pleased to try out Sorel’s Slimshortie style. They are kind of part cowboy, part biker, with their full-grain waterproof leather they can take on any challenges of a festival, plus they will look great in winter as well.

To tie my boots into my look I added a tan belt, which really nips in this cute dress, and then to add a summer pop I went for this fun pompom headpiece from Asos, which is currently in the sale so snap it up quick, I just thought it looked perfect with my new specs from Kite, the yellow Shore Projects watch and my Rebecca Minkoff bag.

What do you think – would you wear this to a festival? Also have you tried out Sorel’s Slimshortie boots?

My Style: Denim Skirt, Sunshine, and Fountains

my style denim skirt 12 My Style: Denim Skirt, Sunshine, and Fountains %tag

Last week when I was in London having a spot of afternoon tea, I stopped by Somerset House, because why the hell not really, but I realised while walking around and of course getting snapped by Sherin that I rarely see the fountains as the square is normally taken over by the London Fashion Week tent.

It was weird just admiring the gorgeous architecture, dancing in-between the fountain jets, and generally seeing the square without the hoards of fashionistas, and best of all not cursing the cobbles when rushing off to a show. To show how pretty Somerset House is in the sun I did a 360 Instagram video, if you want to check it out head on over to my Instagram feed.

As we seem to be seeing a little sun lately I have been trying to embrace my summer wardrobe, I know that my last style post was also a denim skirt, but that one was a pencil skirt and this cutie is a flared one from Topshop’s tall collection.

Granted only subtle differences but I love that this flared skirt can literally just be thrown on with nearly anything. I paired mine with a lace detailing black top from H&M, tribal StylistPick flats that I picked up in their sale last summer, and added a pop of colour with one of my favourite bags by Rebecca Minkoff.

My Style: The Swans Travel To France

my style swans in france  My Style: The Swans Travel To France %tag

So you might have noticed that my blog was a little quiet last week, I was in France visiting family and I forgot to put an out-of-blog on, to be honest I did plan to blog while I was away but I just decided to relax and take a mini break from my laptop.

Much like the weather here is was sunny and bright while we were away, well for the most of it, so I thought it was a great chance to wear my gorgeous Tory Burch swan printed wedges. These beauties have been in my shoe collection since last year when I got them in The Outnet sale and I have been praying for the sunshine so I could wear them, and it was worth nearly making my luggage over the allowed 10kg allowance on Ryan Air!!!my style swans in france 13 My Style: The Swans Travel To France %tag

As we were just pottering around the garden, checking out neighbouring villages and getting very jealous over the gorgeous châteauxs **she below my dream house/castle**, I decided to team the swans with my Hudson crop jeans, which have become my new favourite and a slouchy tee from New Look, oh and lots of cute jewellery pieces.

As well as giving my new wedges a run out I also decided to try out how to work a tuck, well I have seen numerous celebs and some of my fav style bloggers so I though I would give it ago, also I was inspired by a piece in People Style that I read on the plane over.

I went for the loose front tuck, a kind of relaxed look where you loosely tuck in the front and let the sides and back hang out. I am not sure I fully mastered it – but hey I gave it a go – and I liked it.

**Coming soon – the side tuck, the full tuck and the smart front tuck – only joking, well sort of!!!**

Daily Shop: Biker Cuff Loving At Accessorize

I saw this beauty while shopping this week in Accessorize and I have been crushing over it ever since. This chunky futuristic biker bangle, with its mock studded chain effect is only £12, I know right bargain price *kicking myself for not just buying when I saw it*.

I just think it would look amazing paired with black jeans and a lady-like white blouse for the perfect fashion juxtapose, or how about pairing with your favourite little black dress. Seriously, this bangle has lots of potential!!
