Styling Printed Shorts

Styling Printed Shorts

Does anyone else get a little fear when thinking about wearing shorts? Or is it just me. For years I stayed clear, then I discovered a pair of great fitting denim shorts, and I was kind of hooked on finding more. My search, I have to be honest hasn’t been overly successful, why do they have to be so tiny, why so tight, and why so unflattering?

Well I’ve found the most perfect pair of weekend shorts from Fat Face, they are so comfortable as they have a little flare, plus the elephant print makes them so adorable to wear, and I love that they are versatile. You can wear these beauties with a T-shirt, a shirt or even a jumper, and pair with sandals, wedges, and as I have done a bright pair of trainers.

Three Cheers For Pompoms

Three Cheers For Pompoms

OK, so technically I’m not talking about cheerleading fashion, but I couldn’t resist the reference as today’s blog is all about my latest obsession with pompoms. These fluffy little cuties are having a moment right now, you can find them on shoes, handbags, gorgeous maxi dresses and tops, as well as on jewellery, and I seriously can’t get enough. 

So when I’m obsessed, literally all the pompoms on Asos are in my saved items, I have to share my obsession with you guys. I think top of my purchase list has to be these beautifully, fun and slightly crazy pompom sandals from Asos, not only does it have the fluffy factor x3 but they also have holographic detailing, and a low heel, which means I will probably wear them all the time.

3 Summer Denim Looks With Caravelle NY

3 Summer Denim Looks With Caravelle NY

Yeah to the recent warm weather, it finally feels like summer, so of course I rushed over to spend the weekend by the sea in Aldeburgh, a pretty seaside town in Sussex. As the weather was so lovely and the setting so beautiful, I thought it would be a cool idea to do a summer lookbook editorial focusing on denim, you know me I love a bit of denim, as well as showcase a few current trends I’m loving, off-the-shoulder and fun lace tops, as well as present my favourite pieces from the Caravelle New York spring/summer 2015 collection. 

There are three looks: denim shorts, a fun and flirty denim skirt, as well as my trusty light blue skinnies that I seem to always wear during the warmer months, teamed with a few new favourites.

Shopping: The Chloé Look For Less

Shopping: The Chloé Look For Less

There are lots of things I’m lusting for summer, lace-up gladiator sandals, crochet detailed dresses, contrasting candy-coloured arm candy, as well as retro-inspired denim midi’s, floaty tops with lace-up details, suede coats, lace panelled tops and floaty maxi dresses, you’ve guessed it, I’m obsessing over everything Chloé.

There is something about Chloé that just makes me swoon, want to skip out on my mortgage payment and blow my wages on designer gear. I like other designer labels, I even love some, but I don’t lust over them as much as I do Chloé. I was obsessed during Phoebe Philo’s reign and it seems my love is growing deeper now that Clare Waight Keller is at the helm, her retro-inspired bohemian spirit is infectious. I can’t be the only one wanting to be a Chloé girl, can I?

There is one small snag, OK not so small, the designer price tag associated with everything Chloé, we are taking around £1,000 for the gorgeous Chloé Drew bag, which is right at the top of my wishlist, and even a silk crepe tank is going to set you back around £400, so if like me your bank manager wouldn’t be happy if you skipped out on your bills I’ve put together some great alternatives on the highstreet – so you too can get the Chloé look for less.
