In typical British weather our August has been pretty damp, with plenty of rainy spells, this has lead to wearing tights on more than one occasion – which sucks at this time of year! I’ve finally got used to ditching tights and going bare legged and the weather doesn’t cooperate – typical!!
This dress however is the perfect transitional piece, its light and bold print lends itself to the summer but the dark base to the print and its longer sleeve works well in Autumn, win win in my book! Also all the fall fashion popping up on the high street has me in a craze – autumn is by far my favorite season, the colours, textures and prints make me giddy!

My ever growing love for years gone by has drawn me deep into the 1970’s. Lately I’m getting inspiration from 1970’s fashion and luckily for me the shops are full to the brim with 70’s inspired clothing. I still love this kimono and hat combination and to mix up how I wear it I’ve teamed it with this denim skirt is from Oasis. This skirt screams that 70’s vibe I’m feeling – I’ve also picked up a super cute 70’s style t-shirt this weekend that will go perfectly with this skirt, I can’t wait to wear it! I’m also sporting this bold turquoise ring from HOF, I love colour and fine textures within in it – plus it works perfectly with the the colours within the kimono. What I’m wearing –

T-shirt & Belt – Topshop
Kimono – New Look

Continuing my holiday theme (see my flying fashionably outfit), Boohoo asked me what was in my beach bag? I thought it would be fun to share what is inside my beach bag and like usual illustrate it… it’s just more fun this way! I’d be wearing my bikini and a kimono as a cover up, sliders to wear around the pool and sunglasses to keep the sun out of my eyes while sunbathing.
Other fun things I like to have in my beach bag are my ipod and ipad, the ipad is great for instagraming and reading books while lazing around the pool. Another great thing to capture the good times is my Fuji instax Polaroid with these credit card size pictures it’s endless fun! For fun in the pool we have these fun bats and balls, we often get a ruby ball too – it’s a great way to make friends while on holiday too! A couple of piratical things you’ll find in my bag are sun cream, a bottle of water (evian being my water of choice), hand cream and lip balm to stop you getting cracked lips and hands after being in the water.Kimono, Sliders and Sunglasses c/o Boohoo Bikini – Topshop ipad Case – Urban Industries Fuji Instax Mini 8 c/o Curry’s

Watch c/o Tallulah’s Threads A couple of weeks back Sherelle and I headed off to Brick Lane for a couple of blog events. We arrived early and popped into one of my favorite vintage stores Blitz for a mooch around (remember my video of shopping here? I must try making more videos!). We had a good rummage of the rail and I regretted not buying that floral dress!
After a good mooch and before we headed off to the event, we captuerd some outfit photos. I love Sherelle’s style and her trainer collection is to die for! The great thing about having blogging friends is they are willing to take outfit snaps for you, and don’t judge you for it :-). What Sherelle’s wearing –
Shirt Dress – Topshop
Crop Top – Topshop
Culottes – ASOS (Monki)
Trainers – Reebok
Bag – Zara (Sale)
Rings – Topshop

Sporting my new favorite hair style, the half up half down pony – it just makes my hair look so long :-). This super cute paisley print dress is from the lovelies over at Boohoo, I think it’s going to be the perfect fall transitional piece but for now I opted for bare legs. It’s funny how all winter I’m longing for summer and now we’re in the middle of summer (not that it feels like it, is this the rainiest August ever?) I’m longing for Autumn, I guess with all the shops are stocking their Autumn collections it’s hard not to get caught up in planning new autumnal outfits. This must have influence my outfit, instead of opting for my favorite sandals I went for black ankle boots and my faux leather jacket. What I wore –

There is something about a simple white dress with a light weight jacket and tan accessories that scream summer – I think summer time and tan accessories go hand in hand in my book!
You’d think August is the height of summer and we’d be having lovely warm weather, but in fact it’s been the opposite and lots of rain. Just as I thought summer had disappeared on us we’re having a delightfully warm weekend. In honor of the sunshine we headed to the common for our Sunday walk with Coco. Is it just me or does my hair look really long in these snaps? I must remember to do it in a half up pony more often ;-)
Here it is, in all its glory and if I say so myself, doesn’t my hair look fly! ;-) ha ha… I absolutely love having my hair done and I was really pleased with the results, I felt like a true princess all day – thank you Blo for my lush blow-dry!
As for my outfit, I went for a fail-safe favorite teaming this floral midi skirt with a simple black tee. Adding in a touch of toughness with my faux leather jacket and fringed bag. I love the mixture of feminine floaty skirt and the tougher touches of the chunky belt and leather jacket combined. It’s fair to say with this skirt and my bouncy hair I was swishing around everywhere I went.
