Its June and the weekend, I’ve got relaxing planned on the agenda. So I’ve slipped into the most comfortable little playsuit by Nasty Gal. This is the first playsuit I’ve worn this year, and since a holiday is probably out the the question I’ve decided to have one here at home 😉
This is my first blog post in my new house, YAY! If you’ve moved before, then you know it can be super stressful. It doesn’t help when all of us get hit by the flu at the same time! Actually, I move so much, this event should really be second nature by now! We’ve left the busy city of London, for a quieter Surrey. The main reason why we moved was A for more space, and B so Matty could have a garden to play in. Finding both these things in Notting Hill is slim to non!
For today’s blog post I wanted to introduce you to my new classic loafers, by Prof. In my mind, these are an example of chic & classic. I’ve been looking for a perfect yet affordable loafer for a while now, and so happy I’ve discovered these. Made in Italy with its over-sized gold chain makes these babies super chic! I’ve paired them with a classic strapless black jumpsuit and an over-sized straw hat! Why have I not had such a classic shoe in my wardrobe until now?!!
I’ve put together some inspiration of my spring/summer current faves. Here’s a round up of my top looks for this season!
1: Berets paired with summer dresses
If you have been following me on social then you know I’m beret obsessed! Nothing beats a beret, it gives off that chic look to pretty much any outfit! Actually for me it completes the outfit. I just love the way these gals have paired the notoriously winter hat for the summer. So dont pack your wool berets just yet, you can still rock them for another season!!
2 broderie anglaise, ruffles, and lace up
Im a complete sucker for ruffles, broderie anglaise, and lace up. I recently received a dress by Tobi (HERE) which reminds me of these above photos. I need to up my tanning game as currently I am as white as these crisp fabrics. The bronzed look and these feminine beauties, make me go gaga!
3: Mid length skirts
Ive never been a big fan of midi, but this season I’ll be adding a few of these babies into my wardrobe! Jeanne Damas is always the inspo. She wears them so good, and I love how she paired her midi skirt with a tight cardi… (buying now!)
4 Straw Hats
Nothing says “Summer” like a straw hat. Im a mega hat person, and actually feel much better when I have something on my head! I’ve found a few seriously cute options which I’ve linked below.
5: Button down tops
Here’s a spring/summer wardrobe staple. I LOVE big buttons right now, they give that ‘Extra’ to that basic top! Again, can we just look at that bronzed tan… Honestly If I get one of those this summer it will be a miracle. If your a city Mom, without a garden, and have a wild 4 year old you will understand! *Brings out the fake tan*
6: Cherry everything
As far back as I can remember I’ve been a sucker for cherries! I can remember my first day at 8th grade I wore a Forever 21 tight top with ruched shoulders and cherries. I still think about that top, and wish I still had it. So glad to see cherries in the stores right now, and hoping ill find my replica 8th grade top! BTW & other stories has a blouse just like this one!
A few days ago I was invited to the Amazon Fashion Event #AMFASHPACK at their photography warehouse in Hoxton, East London. Thankfully they provided a car for me because being a West Londoner, Hoxton feels like a million miles away! In addition, it was pouring with rain outside and my yellow suede shoes ( had to wear them) which screamed summer al fresco wouldn’t have made it via public transport! I didn’t come to the event wearing this outfit, actually a day before the event an Amazon package arrived at my door filled with amazing beauty products and a perfect pair of Warehouse nautical wide leg jeans (here) and a stunning Love Moschino handbag (here). So of course I wore them! I didn’t manage to get any photos of that outfit on the night ( Having fun trying on too many other things from the Amazon Find range!). No doubt I will wear it again for an Instagram post.
They had a great itinerary lined up for us including trying on products from their new seasons line and we were all snapping photos of each other. Pictured above is the outfit I chose. I love it! I have been wearing the FIND line for a few months now, and can honestly say I really love their products and the quality is fantastic. If you haven’t checked out FIND yet, I’d recommend you do! After we tried on the outfits we were invited to a delicious exotic dinner hosted by Bala Baya which included hummus, pita, and salmon with rose petals and a fresh tomato relish which was so YUM! If you follow me on Instagram then I’m pretty sure you may think I only eat burgers and fries, but I really do eat other things too – well maybe not salad though!
