My Style: Rocking Monochrome & Some Cute Flats

my style monochrome My Style: Rocking Monochrome & Some Cute Flats %tag

I don’t think you can go into a high street store without seeing monochrome looks – it is everywhere for spring/summer and it is a trend that is going to continue into autumn, which is why when I saw this Jaeger dress in the sale I had to snap it up.

This beauty, I can see now is going to be my throw-on dress, it is causal and comfortable with its oversized silhouette, yet it can be smartened up with a belt to nip in the waist, and can easily make the seasonal change from summer to autumn with the addition of tights and boots.

As the dress can be a little plain, I find that what can make or break this look is how you accessories it, so with that in mind I decided to pair with my new ASOS flats, which are super cute with their double bows. In the pictures they look like there are white flats, but actually they are made from a silver hologram material, which shimmers in the sun and looks great with my pink pedicure that is still going strong.

I shot these piccies in the garden, which has been my office this summer, and I thought it would be nice to add a spot of colour to my black and white look with some of my new flowers that have bloomed, plus see if you can spot my very own baby panda…OK kitty…but she is in a tree and is very cute!!!

My Style: Summer Loving In Wimpole Estate

my style wimpole hall 11 My Style: Summer Loving In Wimpole Estate %tagOne of my happy places, yes I have a happy place, has to be the Wimpole Estate near where I live, it is a gorgeous National Trust property in Cambridgeshire that has an impressive mansion, stunning gardens and grounds, and is home to some of the most adorable cows ever!!!

For me this is a place to relax, reflect, and generally get away. There is so much to do – I regularly come to read a book under a tree, enjoy a picnic, visit the farm, or just admire the stunning floral displays in the gardens, and when I am filling extra energetic I take in one of their many walks – this place is as beautiful in summer as it is when covered in snow.

I always seem to find something new to capture with my camera, whether a pretty flower, a cute cow, the incredible scenery, or the estates ginger cat. If only the place had free WiFi across the grounds as I think I would become a permanent resident throughout the summer.

Last weekend, when the weather was a little cooler, I decided to pop by to visit the gardens and take some summer snaps – basically I wanted to pose in front of a big mansion, see a few cows and get some flower inspiration for my own garden.

The greyish skies suggest that it wasn’t that warm but it was such a muggy day that I wore my loose Jaeger Boutique dress that I bought in the sale last year, which is perfect for dressing up with heels or like here with simple flats that I picked up in Primark. As I can’t seem to go anywhere, not even for a walk, without jewellery I paired my look with my new MyFlashTrash bracelets that I was gifted by River Island and my statement rose necklace from Angelica London.

It was such a fun afternoon and I hope it comes across in these piccies as for the first time in a while I actually didn’t hate what I saw – here’s hoping that my confidence is on its way back up!!!

So what do you think of this summery look – are you a fan of Jaeger Boutique? Also let me know what your happy place is and if you have visited Wimpole.

My Style: The Apartment x Dulux Collective Passion

Dulux blue 2 My Style: The Apartment x Dulux Collective Passion %tag

I am an avid fan of The Apartment set up by my friend Abi, London Fashion Week was revived for me with the blogger sanctuary, and now Abi has adapted the initiative to work all year round by teaming up with brands to create unique blogger events.

I have shared with you the amazing nails from The Apartment x Dulux Collective Passion event, well here are the behind-the-scene snaps and my moments in front of the camera, which showcased my outfits that translated the Dulux Collective Passion spring 2013 colours – basically a group of bloggers were asked to raid their wardrobes.

What was cool about this event, other than finding outfits that I forgot I had, which sadly weren’t in Dulux’s spring colours, was the fact that a global paint giant like Dulux would want to appeal to fashion bloggers – in such a fun way.

So with an amazing Apartment just off Old Street, the spring colours painted on different walls, a make-up artist on hand to make me presentable, pieces of jewellery to style-up my look, and my Dulux-inspired nails I was ready to shoot against the colourful backgrounds in the style of Destiny’s Child ‘Say My Name’ video – which was so much fun.

I brought along three looks, I tried to go for all block colours and dresses, not sure why but I generally don’t do one-colour looks that aren’t dresses First up was my orange Dorothy Perkins shift dress that is one of my favourite dresses in my wardrobe, which worked perfectly with Dulux’s Orange Fizz shade, and I loved the contrast with my Dulux Sapphire Spring and Rock Candy shaded nails.

For my second look I went for my Jaeger Boutique dress that was nearly spot-on for Dulux’s Sapphire Spring, one of my favourite colours from the spring trend palette. What I love about this look has to be the contrast against the Citron Sunrise wall.

It was such a fun event to be part of, and a great example of how non-fashion brands can get their products seen by a fashion audience and I loved every second of it. Plus what I also loved is that I got to hang out with my friends – don’t we all amazing!!!
