Summer Staples

My last look in collaboration with George at Asda is just a laid back, everyday summer outfit.  It’s very simple but the printed culottes speak for themselves and add some detail to the look.  Culottes have been the ultimate summer staple this season and the good news is they’re hear to stay for AW14 too.  Obviously if you’re not much of a heels-wearer then you could substitute those for some flat sandals but you know me and my heels!  I hope I’ve opened your eyes to the world of George this week as there are some great pieces in their collections and next season looks equally as promising.

Sorbet Surroundings

Yesterday I went and had a catch up with the lovely Charlotte and after a spot of impromptu shopping in Topshop (Ox St) we had a bit of lunch and went off to Portobello Road.  These houses give me fond memories of watching Mary Poppins as a little whipper snapper but now in this modern day they’ve been given a ice cream makeover.  There are rows and rows of these pastel coloured houses, they’re a bloggers dream and just another reason why this magnificent city has my heart.

Juiced

Here’s the final look from the summer floral lookbook video I posted earlier this week.  If you haven’t checked out the vid yet then click here or watch below.  I’ve always loved bold trousers like these, the girls I used to work with used to tease me about my love of a printed trouser as I had such a huge collection.  They’re easy to wear, everything on top just needs to be kept relatively simple.  The best thing about this particular pair is that they comfy, almost like a thinner, jazzier version of a pair of joggers.

The Unconventional

Well I launched my first YouTube Lookbook yesterday so I hope you’re all enjoying that.  I know there’s plenty of you that enjoy my outfit posts so here’s another one from the video.  I love the neon popsof colour on this Dorothy Perkins skirt, it’s a more fun, less conventional way to rock a floral print this season.

Floral Summer Lookbook

Right guys, countless hours of filming and editing later and here we go, my first ‘Lookbook’ YouTube video.  Please have a watch and give it a thumbs up if you wanna see more of this from me.  Subscribe to my YouTube Channel  so you don’t miss out any future videos too!  This is the only form of YouTube that I’m comfortable with right now, I don’t really like talking to the camera but if you do want to see haul vidoes or tutorial style vids then please leave a comment either on the video or below.  Your feedback is very valuable to me so please let me know what you think 🙂 
Today’s Lookbook theme is Summer Florals and there are 4 outfits in total.  The first 2 outfits you will recognise from last weeks posts, I will always post stills of each outfit featured in a video because there will be some of you that prefer that media, so I’m catering for all.  There are product links to the items featured in the video below so if there’s anything you just luuuuuurve, you can purchase those by clicking through the links.  If you want to know what equipment I used to film & edit then this info is stated below.

Floral Re-Mix

Exciting day today as I’m heading off to go and shoot my alternative version of the Christmas Lookbook with River Island.  It does feel slightly odd that I’ll be donning faux fur, sequins and all number of Autumn/Winter outfits when it’s 30 degrees outside, but hey, it’s Christmas in July as we bloggers know it.  
Today’s outfit is yet another from the floral Lookbook that I’ve shot and just demonstrates how much I love mixing prints.  Florals and animal print do actually compliment each other and obviously (despite the temperature) I will always add a touch of leather!
