Roses And Playsuits

Back Playsuits & Pretty Roses I know my recent outfits are causing a divide between some of you, ha ha. I’ve had numerous comments on my social media about me constantly wearing playsuits or dresses, and most of you miss the denim, but trust me, it’s not by choice. Since us Brits are used to cold, wet, grey weather for 90% of the year, it means I can usually always wear jeans, however we are having a crazy summer and it’s been about 30C since the beginning of June now, and since I can’t regulate my temperature, I have to wear as little clothing as possible, which is why my playsuits and dresses are serving me so well at the moment. I miss my jeans as much as you do, and I’m longing for Autumn so that I can wear them again. I miss all of my layering outfits, especially my jackets! I did wear white jeans with a floral top in my last outfit post, which we shot in the evening, but even that was uncomfortable for me, so I am doing my best! Hopefully you can come to love my summer style as something additional and different to what you’re used to! Now that’s out of the way, for this outfit on a day that was 31C, I kept it as simple as I possibly could. I wore my H&M Black Playsuit as it’s made from the thinnest cotton and is really breezy, I styled it with my Moschino Bear Slides, then finished it off with my Valentino Lock Bag in Ivory, and a pair of Ray-Ban Rainbow…

Coast Harrison Bardot Top With White Jeans

Coast Harrison Bardot Top With White Skinny Jeans Happy Monday everyone! I feel like this weekend has flown by, but it’s been extremely busy. On Thursday I was helping Adam with a work photo shoot, which was amazing, but extremely tiring, then Friday was resting. Saturday was cleaning and tidying up, then doing some more on Sunday. It may seem like normal things, but I’ve been so tired and feeling sick from doing too much that I have been welcoming the working week, minus the heat. One thing I do like about summer though is the pretty orange glow you get from the sun in the evenings – the golden hour. It creates such beauty in photos that I am extremely excited to be sharing this set with you that Adam and I shot a couple of weekends ago. How pretty is the background? Shot at a local farm, I think the sun shining off of the wheat fields was stunning! Now getting to the outfit, I had been planning something like this for a while and I’m so glad I got to do it in the perfect setting with the right weather. It was of course hot, and I was sweltering wearing jeans, but for the art of fashion, that’s just something you have to do! This beautiful statement top is the COAST Harrison Floral Print Bardot Top and I actually ordered it on a whim, thinking I wouldn’t keep it, but as soon as I put it on, I fell in love. Even Adam said he adored it (more than I did) so that’s how I know it’s…

Can I Have Some Privacy Please

Privacy Please Troy Mini Dress Outfit I wanted to start of by saying thank you so much for the enormous support regarding my last post on 10 Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Life Hacks! It’s had thousands of views already and has been shared around many places, and lots of people have found it helpful for their own symptoms, or commented on the shares with their own tips, which I am really pleased about! I’m so glad I’m able to help others going through the same as me. I’m really struggling with regulating my temperature at the moment though and have been suffering a lot with the heat, especially on Saturday when we shot these photos, I couldn’t stop sweating in the restaurant and by the evening, my legs had swollen up and I couldn’t move them for hours while they ached in pain. I’m doing ok though, I’m managing everything. Now as I’m excited about this post, I will get to it! I couldn’t resist the word play on this title! What I am wearing here is the Privacy Please Troy Mini Dress in Kristina Floral, so obviously I would want to make a joke as the title! It’s such a cool name for a brand after all… What first attracted me to this dress was the sleeves as they hang over the tops of the arms, and secondly is was the colour palette. I usually always wear warm tones, especially when it comes to prints, so choosing a dress with only blue, green, and yellow in it was completely new to me. Oh what a sheltered life I have lived!…

What To Wear To A Garden Party

How To Look Pretty At A Summer Garden Party The summer is in full swing right now and it’s absolutely boiling, but with that comes an influx in outdoor activities and one of my favourites is the summer garden party! There’s many different types of garden parties that you can attend and some of those include water, while others are more of a classy, sophisticated experience such as a BBQ with iced teas. Any of them are bound to be blast, but when it comes to choosing the perfect outfit for your chosen event, what do you even wear? It can be tough to narrow your ideas down and choose a dress that’s perfect, but I think I have done just that with my wonderful collaboration with House of Fraser – one of my favourite department stores. As I wanted to style a look centered around an evening garden party, I chose this absolutely stunning embroidered midi dress from Chi Chi London and I think it couldn’t be more perfect if it tried. I’m thinking party cakes, sweet teas, elegant BBQ food and gentle jazz music while everyone enjoys themselves of an evening, what could be better than this dress? It’s feminine, classy, girly, cute, all while being intricately detailed and flattering to the figure. The pastel, blush pink shade is a hue that I always gravitate towards now as it’s incredibly complementary to my skin tone, and the little embroidered flowers in pastel green and pink just make it divine. I couldn’t stop staring at the dress as soon as I received it, especially as the back of it…

The Red Floral Playsuit Outfit – Take Two

Red Floral Playsuit Styled Again If this outfit looks familiar, it might be because I wore this playsuit a couple of weeks ago in a very similar way (see here), but I switched it up a little bit for the second outfit. In my opinion, if something isn’t broken, don’t fix it, and I liked the previous look so much that I didn’t want to stray too far away from that for a re-styling. So, all I did was swap out the shoes, and ditch the cardigan, so for this look, I was wearing my H&M Floral Red Playsuit which I styled with my Moschino Teddy Bear Slides and my Gucci GG Matelasse Black Velvet Bag. Now as I have styled this similarly in two different looks, I’m of course going to ask you if you prefer the first or second outfit? The weather has been so hot, I think this might even be the longest heat wave we have had? I actually cannot wait for it to cool down and start being tolerable to go outside, or sleep for that matter. I’m not sure how you all do it for those of you that live in a hot climate. I’m just not made for it! My summer shoes that I bought, like these Moschino Bear Slides, are getting so much use though and all I seem to be living in right now is cotton playsuits as it’s the only thing breathable! I’ve also been wearing a new pair of sunglasses that are rainbow and mirrored (I actually bought them last year in the winter) so I’m enjoying those right…

Sunsets On Lyme Regis Beach

Sunsets On Lyme Regis Fossil Beach I wanted to mostly let the photos do the talking for this blog post. After Adam and I had gone ‘fossiling’ as I call it, we saw the most prettiest sunset on the walk back, so we had to stop to take some photos. There was a little pool of water left over from where the tide had gone out earlier, and the orange sun was reflecting beautifully in it from the sky. It was truly picturesque! As I was only wearing a really casual and easy outfit, I didn’t want to make this post about the look, and instead just keep it all about the beauty of the scenery. For those of you interested though, I was wearing Citizens of Humanity Corey Denim Shorts, an Oasis Shirt, and a Mulberry Lily Bag. It’s one of those rarer occasions where you see me with my hair tied back too. For those of you who haven’t been to Lyme Regis before, I definitely recommend it. It’s not much of a town and it doesn’t have much night life, but if you’re someone that adores nature like I do, and history, you will like it. It’s very quiet and relaxing, yet filled with culture. These photos were taken on Fossil Beach and it’s usually pretty quiet there in the evening – we only saw about 10 people in 2 hours. It’s crazy to think that the rocks and fossils date back to the Jurassic period! Isn’t it beautiful? I can’t wait to go back! P.S. – These are the same Citizens of Humanity shorts that I…

The Oasis Seahorse Playsuit Outfit

Oasis Seahorse Playsuit Outfit Some more photos from Lyme Regis for you! We actually spent a lot of time in the Alexandra Hotel as they had some amazing grounds, so lying on the sun loungers and checking out the gardens was a nice change. To actually spend time relaxing was a completely new experience for me as we never usually stay in places with grounds, we usually pick a large hotel in London, or a small B&B in St. Ives. It felt strange to not do much, but as it was a mini getaway to recuperate, it made sense. I actually wore this Oasis Bardot Seahorse Playsuit most days when I was there! It’s so comfortable and easy to wear, I’ve been wearing it last week too. It’s mostly sold out, but if you do manage to find it, I recommend it to you as it’s wonderful! I’m so glad that I picked it up when I did. I styled it with my Schutz Rashne Double Strap Sandals and my Mulberry Lily Bag in Oak. I wasn’t sure whether the combination of tan, black, and blue actually went together, but since I didn’t take many accessories and shoes, it’s what I went with and I quite like how it turned out. Now as it’s sale season, I wanted to share with you some of my favourite sales that I have been taking advantage of right now! I’m only listing 8 of them though, as these are the shops I like to buy my items from and the deals are too good to pass up! Seriously! I think this is one…

Yumi Flamingo Print Jumpsuit At Lyme Regis

Yumi Flamingo Print Jumpsuit Outfit at Lyme Regis I’m feeling extremely summery today! I’ve been sat in the garden for a few hours under the shade of the tree, just relaxing and watching the insects and bees going about their business. I’ve had a headache for the past 48 hours so sometimes just getting outside and soaking up nature’s surroundings is just what I need. I feel extremely content as I’m writing this, instead of the usual overwhelming feeling. I usually have 3 days between each blog post as you know, but unfortunately I was a day late posting my Moschino Teddy Bear Slides review as I wasn’t very well, so this outfit post is coming early, so I can keep to my schedule. So for this look, this was one of the outfits that I wore when I was in Lyme Regis and I love how easy it is! It’s basically just my Yumi Flamingo Jumpsuit (now on sale) which I styled with my Ray-Ban Aviator Sunglasses, my Mulberry Lily Bag in Oak, and my Daniel Wellington Classic Petite Watch. I only took easy pieces while we were away, so that consisted of a pair of jeans and a shirt for travelling, and my playsuits/jumpsuits as they make outfits that bit easier to put together. I got this Yumi Flamingo Jumpsuit last month and I fell in love with it. I’ve never really been much of a jumpsuit person (except this outfit here) and now I am wearing them all the time! It’s actually incredibly flattering with the wrap detailing and the elasticated waist. I can’t get enough of…
