All that glitters








Pink, pretty and subtly sparkly; a combination that is rarely beaten,











How perfect are these pendants that I was so kindly sent from Stacey Jewellery? These simple pendants and chains are so versatile for the summer season and can so easily be paired with a t shirt and jeans ensemble, as well as a much more dressy affair.
Delicate, gold and ideal for layering over my very monochrome outfits, these pieces so perfectly add that sought after finishing touch.

Which is your favourite necklace?

YBD












Photos by the lovely Morgan Tedd

I was recently lucky enough to be involved with a shoot alongside the wonderful Young British Designers. YBD exists to discover upcoming and developing designers of all ages and showcase their incredible talent. Honestly, the clothes I got to wear were amazing (check out that metallic bag!) and it was refreshing to step out of my usual black/grey/black wardrobe.

I highly recommend a scroll through their site, though spoiler; serious wardrobe lust guaranteed.

Oh my Gamiss!
















Wait, hold up. Is that me in clothes that actually look *gasps* summery? I know, right - I'm shocked too. But these pieces I was so kindly gifted by Gamiss were too perfect to resist.

01.
This skirt was something usually out of my comfort zone, but that raw hem was enough to sway me. It makes me feel like a cool instagram girl who has her life perfectly put together. Does anyone else have those transformative items in their wardrobe? Giving them the power to feel like a better version of themself? Maybe it's a shame that I have to rely on clothes to help me feel like this, but until I'm able to do so independently, I'm happy to hide behind a nice denim skirt.

02.
Seriously, how beautiful are the colours on this playsuit? Florals are not usually my cup of tea, but the muted soft tones swirled within the flowery pattern are so subtly summery, even a closet goth like myself couldn't help falling in love. The material is soft and light, ideal for an evening out or (ideally) weekend away somewhere warm. Pass me another pina colada.

03.
I feel ready to walk along the French Riviera in this floaty number, sipping something sweet beneath an oversized hat. Easy to dress down with shredded jeans and choker and then dress up with a pair of heels in the evening. Crisp and white and so pleasingly opaque, I feel more ready for a holiday than ever.

What's your holiday staple?

Rosegal Haul





















Over the next few posts I have some items that lovely companies have been kind enough to gift me; all opinions will always be honest and my own.

The first of my hauls is from Rosegal, and I have to admit I was incredibly impressed with 100% of my picks.

01.
I have worn this shirt to death (already) only having received it a few days ago. It's the ideal material that does not crease (i.e. a dream) and fits so well within my monochrome wardrobe. I wore this in London at the weekend and actually got stopped by a photographer, so naturally turned on full 'blogger-awkward-pose-self-timer' mode and tried to look cool.  Full credit to the shirt.

02.
The colour of this off the shoulder top really appealed to me. I've seen so many of the pale blue bardot numbers strewn across Zara sales rails, but this sage shade seemed really fresh and different. Similarly, the longer length means I can wear it with non-high-waisted jeans when the weather get a little chiller. In other words, at any point during our English "summer".

03.
This crop is simple and monochrome and therefore an instant hit. I have to say I ordered in the largest size so I could wear it like a usual t shirt, which was an excellent decision. The material is actually surprisingly good also and super soft, an ideal companion to throw on at the beach or at a festival.

04.
I literally picked this so I could wear it in France and just point to the slogan at appropriate moments. Kinda wish it said 'oui' on the back too, but aside from that, it's the perfect fit for any wardrobe.

So good at being in trouble





shirt - Zara
jeans - Zaful
coat - H&M
shoes - Lightinthebox
bag - vintage

I was unsure how I felt about these Zaful jeans when I tore open the packaging, but first impressions could not have been more wrong. Ripped with raw hems in a perfect light wash, these high waisted beauties were definitely love at first wear.

What's your favourite style of jeans?

Freetown Sound







shirt - Lightinthebox
skirt - StyleWe
boots - Primark
bag - Vintage

When your week has left you with little time to sit down, returning home to parcels is always a welcome greeting on the doormat. Especially when they contain one of the prettiest skirts you've ever seen.
Delicately packaged in a dustbag and glistening through the tissue paper, I knew this was love at first sight. A pleasing alternative from my favoured black mini, yet still neutral and muted with flashes of silver, this Style We skirt is bound to be a keeper this summer.

What's your summer (or "summer" in the UK) staple?

Cupid Deluxe







shirt - Armani c/o Depop
t shirt - Streetshirts
shorts - Rosegal
boots - New Look c/o Depop
hat - Missguided
necklaces - ebay
bag - vintage

Sadly 2015 was a year without standing in a muddy field, in drizzling weather, overpriced drink in hand and singing tunelessly along with a song I actually know the words to. I vowed not to make this mistake again. 

Despite not managing to get Glasto tickets, upon discovering my literal all time fave act Blood Orange was performing in the UK, I knew this would be the ideal alternative. You know the type of music you listen to and it's like 'this is it, I've found it'. Yep, that. The best bit is that the only other person who had heard of them was the very person I'd befriended on the first day of uni. So naturally, I'm dragging him along too.

This is the (potential and weather permitting) ensemble I intend on wearing. White might not be the ideal choice, but as it's only a day event, I'm hoping too much Vanish won't be required.

Are you a festival fan?
