Oh hello, June, where did you come from?  Seriously how is it June already? I'm going to try and make the most of summer this year - despite everything else being rubbish. I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun in the sun. Sound like a good plan, doesn't it? ⠀

Oh hello, June, where did...

I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

A Guide To Christmas Jumpers

Picture this Christmas scene: snow is falling outside while indoors there’s an open fire and twinkling lights on a Christmas tree. Stacked underneath are presents and gifts just waiting to be opened, traditional music is playing. Then of course there’s the knitwear that everyone is wearing, you know the embarrassing jumper you are forced to pull out every year.

Not everyone is this fortunate, so spare a thought for the children that will wake up with no twinkling lights on a Christmas tree or presents to be unwrapped. 12th December is the Save The Children’s Christmas Jumper Day, it’s a day where people in the UK come together to wear Christmas jumpers for a good cause. Click on the link to find out more details.

You have to be not only a Christmas scrooge but also a fashion scrooge to be avoiding the Christmas jumper this year, this staple of the festive season has been a topic of conversation when making arrangements. The Chief Executive of Asos is quoted by saying the trend for it this year is bigger than ever before.  The Christmas jumper is becoming just as traditional as the Coco Cola advert and the Starbucks red cup, and while some might be a scrooge about it – there are others who relish in it and think it’s the best thing since ‘onesies’ came onto the scene.

So if you don’t want to be a fashion scrooge this year or you don’t want your friends or family to suffer, then this guide will hopefully give you some guidance on what Christmas jumpers are available to buy for both men and women, catering for those on a budget to those who have expensive tastes.

The Christmas Jumper for Men 

A top tip when it comes to buying a Christmas jumper for the opposite sex is to let the knitwear do the talking for you. After all, there’s no need to go over the top. Men would especially thank you for this – they don’t want to feel even more embarrassed then they already are. For the opposite sex who just don’t like this trend and for those who don’t like the trends but are willing to go along with the festivities for the day and after will give it to a charity such ‘Save The Children’, then here’s a pick of the top 4 who can almost get away with it. Remember subtlety is key here – do not go over the top.
