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.⠀

Spring Summer Fashion Trend | Striped

Posted on

A few weeks ago I wrote about the top to toes pink trend. Now another spring/summer striped trend is hitting the high street, you don’t want to miss out.

Despite people telling me it was a fool errand for even wanting to wear something striped, ”horizontal stripes make you look wider” they would tell me. A fashion myth that just won’t die, It’s has in fact been proven time and time again that it’s a load of rubbish, however many people still seem to be convinced that the moment they put on anything striped it’ll somehow completely alter their body shape and make you look wider instead of thinner.  I would just roll my eyes and tell them there are being stupid. I’m in the belief that everyone should have something fabulous and striped in their wardrobe.

And when you think about it, Stripes never seem to go out of fashion. And why would you want too anyway? A black and white striped dress never go out of style. Also it seems the striped dress or a skirt every year just keep on finding a way on being re-invented. Not that I’m complaining mine you. I’m a girl who is crazy for a striped black and white dress, I mean I brought the H&M striped dress last summer.

Anyway, striped is a big trend for spring/summer 2017. With high streets introducing us to some vibrant, bold and wonderful striking stripes. High streets fashion store all offer the graphic stripes as more causal, wear rather than a workwear striped suit. The new stripes are all about being free from the resection of the pinstripes of old and allowing that person to be vibrant, bold and striking. Good bye old boring stripes – hello fun stripes.

Here is a small selection of some lovely striped outfit that you will want to put in your wardrobe. A few black and white striped dress with a pink striped skirt and a striped top. Let me know if you like any of these.

So will you be picking up the spring/summer striped trend this year?

    I don’t usually wear stripes, but I’ve been getting into it more lately and I’m really loving stripes mixed with florals or other prints! I will definitely be getting a striped skirt for summer!

    I didn’t realize stripe is coming into season now. I had no idea horizontal stripes made you look wider lol whether it be truth or myth, first time hearing of it. I have a stripe dress that I bought to wear in the office but now that I know its going to be trending soon I’ll look out and grab a few casual pieces. Thanks for keeping me in-the-know lol

    Hey hun, I just might do this to spice up my look a little bit. I have been seeing some real cool things in stores for the summer. Stripes never go out of style. I agree about that. One suggestion about your blog though, check your grammar. Anyway, great post. 🙂

    Ah I LOVE stripes, I truly think you can never go wrong with a classic stripe but I love the twist of the pastel colours and wider stripes. I LOVE the pink dress.

    I love the striped trend. I think regardless of size anyone can wear stripes, who is society to say what we can and can’t wear after all x
