White On White

Happy Friday!  I spent the day yesterday filming some beauty looks with my all time fave Barry M!  Their amazing make-up ambassador and MUA Adam Burrell created some gorgeous day to night looks using some new products which will be available in September and the ‘how to’ videos which we filmed yesterday will be on the Barry M YouTube channel and here on the blog for you to watch also in September.

Floral Grid

I‘ve always had a thing about stripes and florals.  Every time I wear something floral I instantly find myself search for a striped piece to fit into the ensemble somehow.  I got these floral check dungarees from Missguided last week and have been waiting for a slightly cooler day to wear them.  They are a lightweight fabric but with this heat I need to be wearing the bare minimum amount of fabric.

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.

So Fancy

I have some amazing news today!  I was nominated for an ASOS Fashion Finder Award a few weeks back and yesterday I found out that I won!!!  The award I was up for was for ‘Working the Trends’ and I’m so honored to be selected as the winner as I do love my trends 🙂  Check out the other award winners and runners-up here on the Fashion Finder website.  This is my first award as a blogger and after almost 6 years of blogging it really is a pleasure to receive.  I’m not all about awards, I love to see tweets, emails, comments etc from you  guys hearing that you enjoy my blog and that makes all the hard work worth while…but this is a welcome treat for me 🙂

Issues

Right, it’s ‘Jazzy Jeans Day’!  I first saw these amazing Ashish-inspired jeans at the River Island SS14 press day and I instantly wanted them.  They had them paired with a sequin stripe polo tee (again Ashish-Inspired) and I fell in love with the whole look.  These jeans are a ‘Mom’ fit which I’m not the biggest fan of if I’m being totally honest but they are pretty easy to wear by pulling a top over the super high-waist.

Boy

As I’m going on holiday again, unfortunately I will be missing the SS15 Mens Collections in London (15th -17th June).  It’s great to see so many women rocking the androgynous trend at these shows and this season will be no different.  There will be some great style inspiration for AW14 as masculine dressing was seen all over the place at Fashion Weeks back in February.  Masculine dressing is easy what with the rise of the ‘boyfriend fit’ (tees, jeans, blazers!) so it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to wear mens clothing.  That said I’m a huge fan of using mens pieces in my looks and I find some great menswear in Primark in particular their shirts!  I’m a UK size 10 so I buy their smallest sized oxford shirt (ranging from £3) and it fits perfectly, just the right amount of ‘baggy’.  You can also find some great mens bargains in the sales, one of my faves is the ASOS sale where you can usually pick up some pretty jazzy stuff.  For Boyfriend jeans (ladies) I always head to Bershka (seen in this post) and Zara as I find they have the best fit and they last forever!  Normally for accessories, I simply steal them from my other half!

Get Shorty

You might remember me saying that I did a shoot with John Lewis last week, well they were very generous and let me keep a few bits that I liked from the rails and along with these gorgeous Jigsaw sandals were these high-waisted denim shorts by Whistles.  They are going to be a huge summer wardrobe staple for me!
