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.⠀

S/S 16 Jewellery Trends

Whether you like your jewellery to be contemporary pearls, tribal talismans, or chic chokers, then you will love the spring summer 2016 jewellery trends.

The spring summer 2106 jewellery trends are all about romance as all four host cities during the recent main fashion weeks called for a revival of some of fashion’s eternal jewellery trends, including such classic as pearls, tiaras and brooches. Designers’ revived these traditional pieces and gave them a modern 21th century reworking. After all, Chanel was the first to prove that pearls are not just for the status upper class women’s, instead this time redesigning them into choker-style necklaces. The African trend that dominated the catwalks was also reflected in accessories with tribal-inspired talisman necklaces and bracelets showing at the Valentino and Giambattista Valli shows. Here, we take a look at the four standout jewellery trends from the spring summer 2016 jewellery trends.

Statement Earrings

One of the biggest jewelry trends to hit the spring/summer 2016 runways is the return of statement earrings. These earrings are big, bold, colorful, and over-the-top. They were able to be the main headliner statement at the Oscar de la Renta, Rosie Assoulin, and Gucci shows. The best part about this trend? There’s no reason to wait. Go right ahead and go big or go home.

New-age Tiaras

The designers for SS16 destabilized the classic femininity of the tiara, by using silver headpieces to add an extra edge to their collections. At a Louis Vuitton’s show, the SS16 collection was inspired by video-game heroines, with urban-warrior models styled in in space-age headgear. On the other hand, Saint Laurent produced a grunge-inspired collection of with slip dresses and festival designs, finished with diamante tiaras. Then Dolce & Gabbana kept it classic with their signature embroidery and embellishments which appeared on all spring/summer collections and to top off the look all beautifully, with adorned crowns.

Brooch Domination

A timeless classic jewelry trend is the brooch, which was booming on the catwalks and will surely capture the public imagination. The classic brooch was revised in a modern way by designers such Vionnet who adorned the brooch with signature collars. Then there was the crystal brooch at Rochas and the opalescent brooch at Dries Van Noten.

Headbands

Chanel was really the first to catch our attention with those elegant feminine black satin headbands.The headbands were not all dainty and feminine and just came in silk or satin like the rest of Chanel. They also appeared in leather on the Proenza Schouler catwalk, and then there was black cloth based designs at Richard Chai Love show which were a lot simpler in contrast to what has been seen previously. To make this trend classic and feminine Dolce & Gabbana brought in the pearly headbands.

Choker

While we might think of choker to be gothic and 90s nostalgic, the SS16 collections bring it right up to date with the designer Balmain gold chains, adding a touch of futuristic sophistication. Leather chokers were used at Louis Vuitton while Swarovski crystal statement chokers were very much a big statement on the Balenciaga runway show with their striking edginess and touch of punk that rivalled the sophistication seen throughout the collection.

Let me know if you enjoyed looking at the spring summer 2016 jewellery trends.

    Ooo no can’t cope with chokers for that reason….. I feel like I’m being choked! But statement earrings are good! And love the brooches! Don’t think I could pull off the tiaras though x
