My Style: When JD Met Tommy

My style amazon dress 4 My Style: When JD Met Tommy %tag

I spend a lot of my time in jeans, from skinny to boyfriend and even the odd flared cut, in dark blue, light blue, red floral print, grey, and even a stripy pair, I just love them, but this summer I have really been embracing the good weather **where the hell has it gone** and trying to wear more summery, girlie looks.

Last week, when the sun was shining, I wore this Tommy Hilfiger beauty that I found on Amazon’s dress store, yep that place where you buy books, blu-rays, and the occasional Barbie, **I call it the online shop for the three B’s**, has opened The Dress Shop, which has thousands of dresses from brands including Cacharel, French Connection, BCBG, Great Plains, Yumi and Hoss Intropia.

It was hard to just choose one out of thousands, but it was easy to find this short-sleeved blue and white checked dress using Amazon’s easy-to-navigate search for the ‘Occasion’ with dresses for work, evening, special occasion, and casual, which is so perfect for summer dresses. You can also ‘Shop by Trend’ choosing from lace, fit & flare, colour pop, pastels, or just white, basically they have a dress for everyone and for all occasions.

What I love about this dress is that it can be dressed down with gladiator flats and a matching skinny belt, or with fancy black heels and a statement necklace, it really is a versatile piece for my wardrobe that will definitely be perfect come winter time as well.

I actually wore this for a day lounging in the park reading magazines and listening to music, which was the perfect opportunity to try out my new bright blue Monster N-Tunes headphones. I love the on-ear style, especially these ones as they are lightweight as well as being super comfortable with the padded cushions. I also loved that they come with tangle-free cables, you probably don’t believe me but trust me they really work, it is one of my pet-hates having to untangle my headphones for 10 minutes before being able to use them.

I also got to take out my new Moschino case out for my Samsung S5, this case is a limited edition style and features a peace pattern, and I love that it has a handy card pocket on the inside so you just need to take your mobile out with you on a night out. The only thing I need to get use to is the flip style, it makes it a little uncomfortable while on the phone. The best bit though is when you close the case it also turns the screen on and off, so saving battery, which is always needed with me!!!

So what do you think of my Tommy Hilfiger dress and new gadgets?

My Style: Winter Wedding Florals

My style winter florals 1 My Style: Winter Wedding Florals %tagThis weekend I went to the wedding of our good friends Tim and Katie in Bristol, not only was it so much fun catching up with friends who looked so much in love, it got me even more excited about my big day coming up in November.

As we were staying at the venue, the stunning Berwick Lodge, I could wear something that didn’t need a coat and that wasn’t too warm as I didn’t need to go far in the awful stormy weather. I always find weddings in general hard to buy for, as you want to be comfortable, smart, but your outfit can’t really be too over powering, which is why this gorgeous floral fit-and-flare dress from Karen Millen is perfect. I love the intricate detail around the neckline, as well as the sheer cap sleeves and the pleated skirt is so flattering.

I was torn between this and another dress, but after seeing Diane Kruger rocking Erdem winter florals I just had to give the look a go, OK granted it isn’t the same print, or even the same colour, but the trend is still the same and I love how the yellows and pinks really stand out on this dress.

With an all-over print I played down my accessories opting for a black clutch and my black Asos shoes, which I call my disco shoes as not only can I dance in them all night long but the heel sparkles like a disco ball. I just added a touch of colour to my bracelets and my nails to complement my dress.

Have you tried the winter floral look?

My Style: ASOS Floral Dip-Dye Dress

Fashionista Barbie asos dress 7 My Style: ASOS Floral Dip Dye Dress %tag

Before the fashion craziness of September, my boyfriend and I always try to get away for a mini-break, so last week we headed to Wales for a spot of relaxation at a spa in Anglesey. More to come on the amazing hotel, the treatments and the island, but as I haven’t blogged an outfit post in nearly a month, so I thought I would share with you one of my favourite looks from my holibob.

This floral dip-dye smock dress is from ASOS and I bought it on a whim as it was in the sale, it still is and is only £18, I like the shape and the idea of wearing florals without being too girlie and bright. The thinking was I could wear during the summer with bright accessories and then come winter I could layer up with tights, boots and a chunky cardigan.

For dinner at the hotel one night I decided to wear this beauty paired with my bright orange heels from Marks & Spencer, I got them for a wedding last year and they are super comfortable and I love the pop of colour with the burn-out floral design of the dress. As I don’t have an orange belt, seriously the only colour I don’t own, I went with my trusty flower clasp beauty from Dorothy Perkins as this dress really needs to be nipped in a little otherwise it looks a little unflattering.

Finishing off my look I kept my jewellery simple, mainly because we were away to relax not get dressed up, so I wore my trusty Fossil watch that my mum got me for my birthday and my new favourite piece of arm candy – this cute bow bracelet from Kate Spade.

There is something about this dress that I love, and I think it works against the gorgeous backdrop of Anglesey, as it makes the pop of colours in the flowers and palm trees look even more vibrant.

Are you a fan of floral dresses and would you wear this beautiful dip-dye number?

My Style: A Pop Of Orange

I haven’t done an outfit post in a while, mainly because I haven’t thought any has warranted attention, that was until yesterday when I wore this amazing orange shift dress from Dorothy Perkins.

First up the colour is striking and definitely cheers up a very wet and miserable August, secondly the fit is amazing I love how the Georgette material makes the skirt kick out nicely, and finally how cool is this buckle belt that comes with the dress it really helps nip the waist in.

I was planning to wear this with gladiator flats for a quirky cool daytime look, but with the weather like it is I had to get the tights out early, I know it is sacrilege to wear tights before September but it just had to be done.

I finished off my outfit with my trusty heeled brogues from Primark, I know cheapies but they are so comfortable; and then for my jewellery I just went simple with my black beaded Thomas Sabo charm bracelet, and an added pop of colour with my retro pink Casio, I just like the fact they clash slightly.

Daily Shop: Dress Week – Zara Printed Mini

zaraprinteddress Daily Shop: Dress Week   Zara Printed Mini %tag

This week as homage to the sun I am going to pick out my five best dresses under £100.

First up, this gorgeous Printed Dress from Zara, yours for £89.99. I love the silhouette of this dress, the way the skirt kicks out and the balance of the cap sleeves, super flattering.

I know that black and ecru isn’t normally the summer colour palette but as most of us at work while this heat wave is going on I thought this mini was a great summer look for the office. It is also a great dress to show off your tanned legs!!!
