21st Century Marilyn

Hello Monday, I’m glad to see you, I’ve had a pretty action packed weekend!  On Saturday I was sent to the East Coat Live Festival in Ipswich courtesy of F+F Clothing and BlinkBox Music.  Some of you might have seen the odd picture on Instagram but I wasn’t able to upload as much as I wanted because there was zero 4G signal there.  Why is that when you go to a big event like that, and even at Fashion Week, the main area becomes a huge mobile signal black hole?!  Tres annoying!  Anyway I’ll be doing a full post on all those shenanigans tomorrow.  In the mean time I’ll leave you with today’s outfit which is exactly what the titles says, a 21st century Marilyn.

Pastel Agenda

Well with all this glorious weather we’re having here in London it’d be rude not to rock a pastel shade or two.  One huge trend this season was pastel coloured leather (or ‘pleather’ in this case), and this pale blue biker screamed ‘buy me’ when I spotted it in Miss Selfridge the other day.  I’ve teamed it with these gorgeous nude culottes (Dorothy Perkins) and some black leather accessories.  As you can tell the ‘Boy’ is my new favourite bag, apologies if it just so happens to make a cameo in every single outfit…ever!

Botanical Bomber

Re-visiting my last day in Tunisia for today’s post and my comfy travel outfit.  It’s pretty basic to be honest but I had to show off the amazing floral bomber jacket (Zara) and the embellished sandals which you all went crazy for on my Instagram.  I’e mentioned time and time again that I have somewhat of an obsession with bomber jackets this season, the bolder the print…the better!  Check out some of the styles below which are available to buy now!

Vertical

I‘ve always been a lover of a wide-leg trouser, there’s just something slightly casual-but-not about them.  These bold striped numbers are from Zara (£19.99) and are made from a pretty lightweight imitation silk fabric, rendering them perfect for summer.  Be warned though if you’re, ummmm….vertically challenged, as they are inhumanly long!  I’m not sure what height people Zara cater for, but clearly it’s on the giant variety (And I’m tall but not that tall!).  You could also try these H&M alternatives for £14.99 (well known for a shorter leg length!).

Leather & Sheer

I wore this outfit last week to a party held by ASOS (#EpicSummer) and therefore it was only polite to wear ASOS (Dress)!  I bought this dress a couple of months back with a voucher they sent me, but like most things it went straight into my wardrobe and seemed to be forgotten about.  On the day of the party it just seemed to shout at me from within the dark and cramped conditions of the vast vessel that is my wardrobe.  Don’t judge me for wearing flats to a party, as you all well know, flats for me are a rarity but this was a summer garden party kinda theme so these Dune Jolene slides were the perfect partners for my dress.

Discovery

I‘ve made a new discovery in the land of denim, SOS Jeans!  It’s an Italian brand and recently I was gifted with these gorgeous pale grey floral skinnies from their SS14 collection.  They are, as the brands mission statement suggests, the perfect fit!  I love ankle grazers and these are the perfect length, they huge my legs without constricting them, and they have great, errrr, butt support 🙂  Along with a few patterned designs they also create classic styles, I’m in love with their ‘Light X-Fit Denim Okinawa’ jeans which like the ones in this post are ankle grazer, skinny leg, bottom lifter and low waist…..just perfect!

A Pretty Print

I was asked by MissGuided to pick a playsuit or jumpsuit from their site and style it in my own way.  I chose this gorgeous ‘Kobyla’ Cherry Blossom printed playsuit as I thought it would be cute for summer and show off my newly acquired tan.  It’s a silky fabric with a low cut back and the print is beautiful!  I styled it with my obligatory blazer, nude heels and a pastel pink bag for a feminine touch.  Check out their other jumpsuits and playsuits here, the ultimate wardrobe staples for summer!
