It’s In The Detail

It’s all about those little details, fringing, lace, tassels, embellishment; and the G21 range at George has it all.  This little cami dress with beaded embellishment is perfect for festivals, chilling in the park, partying, a beach/pool cover-up…it’s a beaded all-rounder!  I’ve teamed it with this rather jazzy tassled statement necklace and lace fringed kimono which is the ideal cover-up for summer.

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 🙂

Get Out The Glads

It’s been a while since I was able to whip out my favourite ASOS gladiator sandals so it was great to have them as part of my holiday wardrobe.  There are loads of similar styles available at the moment as mine are from last summer.  I teamed them with this tribal printed Forever 21 skirt, perfect for holidays/festivals and added a statement gold necklace from Primark’s Limited Edition range to finish the casual look.  Round the pool I wore a crochet bikini from Forever 21 teamed with a fringed crochet crop top for when I went to the bar.

I can’t wait to don this matching crop top and culottes (Primark) in Spain.  I spotted them at the Primark Press Day back in November and I’ve been waiting all this time for them to hit stores.  I created this flat lay just to play around what I might wear with the set but you’ll have to wait until next week to see this in an outfit post.  If you like the look of it, it’s in stores now 🙂

Acid

How I style my outfits can vary, sometimes I start with one piece and build up from there and today’s look is all based around this amazing statement necklace which was sent to me by new accessories label Adorn.  I literally built up the entire outfit around this necklace, sometimes all I need is a statement piece to inspire me for the look.  The necklace, named ‘Lady Venus’ has got some bling in there, some bold acid brights and some tortoiseshell so is a great mixture of textures and colours.  I kept all other accessories minimal and used my new Fearne Cotton for Very shoes to pick up on the bold colours.

Spring Time

I can’t even begin to explain how excited I am about this sudden change in weather, I mean geez it’s like we’re in the bloody tropics!  That said, I think for some people the excitement has gone to their heads.  They might be “all the rage” for the youth of today but if I see one more pair of ass-cheek-exposing-shorts this week I’m going to be having words!  I’m all up for a pair of denim shorts, once my legs are bronzed and de-fuzzed then I shall in fact don a pair!  But what most people don’t want to see (me included) staring them in the face , as we travel up the escalator from the tube, is a pair of fleshy butt cheeks, jiggling away.  Girls, put them away it’s only 13 degrees #JustSaying
