Floaty In Kuala Lumpur

Floaty In Kuala Lumpur

There’s only one thing I wish I’d been able to do more of in Kuala Lumpur and that’s shoot some fabulous outfit posts. I know what’s happened to me. The thing is I’ve learnt this year that what makes my style posts go easier is a great backdrop and there were so many great locations in this Malaysian capital. Sadly travelling alone meant no-one to capture my looks. I did try asking random strangers, even by targeting those with SLRs and it didn’t quite work out. I have lots of blurry and cropped pictures of me in great locations.

Thankfully there was one day when I got to see the city, as well as Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week – more coming soon on the amazing fashion, with Joyce from Kinky Blue Fairy, which meant I was able to shoot one of my favourite looks from my trip, this gorgeous floaty maxi dress.

Lavender Dreams In A Floral Maxi

Lavender Dreams In A Floral Maxi

If smell-o-vision existed, I’d insist you turn it on, as you’d be able to smell the gorgeous aromas of lavender just by looking at these images. As soon as I saw this Fearne Cotton for Very maxi dress, I knew instantly that I wanted to shoot in a field of purple, and I’m so glad that Hitchin Lavender Farm is so close to me as it was such a fun afternoon prancing around in this gorgeous dress.

My Style: Glorious Goodwood & The Perfect Summer Maxi

Jim-Goodwood-my-style-2

Weekends are precious, I love spending time with my fiancé as well as my close friends, and I love it even more when it is filled with gorgeous sunshine, great food and lots of laughs. Last weekend we went to visit Jim & Sarah, two of our closest friends, to celebrate Jim’s birthday as well as get giddy about the wedding as they are both coming with us to New York and with less than 100 days to go I am pretty excited.

I always love going down to see them both in Chichester, it is always fun and relaxing, and this weekend was made even more perfect with a visit to Goodwood. Not only can you watch planes taking off and cars whizzing around the track, but you can also enjoy them both while eating brunch at the Aero Club Café. The sunshine didn’t hurt either, I think I could have sat outside watching all the planes taking off, landing and doing tricks all day. I really do love discovering secret brunch spots and I can’t wait to go back.

After brunch we wandered around the rest of Goodwood, checking out the motor circuit, watching some drifting, and I couldn’t help but snap away at the lovely retro touches around the grounds including the racing green telephone box and vintage cars. It also made the perfect spot to showcase my new maxi dress from Gap, which is not only flattering but super comfortable. I bought this beauty for my honeymoon but I couldn’t resist giving it a test drive as we are having such glorious weather at the moment.

I have trouble finding flattering maxi dresses, they are either sack-like or too tight, what I love about this Gap beauty is that the elasticised waist creates a blousy top look that really does nip in the silhouette of the dress. Plus I also love anything that I can just throw on, will work with flats, heels and trainers, and is comfortable to wander around in the sunshine.

Have you discovered your perfect summer maxi dress?
