Outfit: French Connection lace dress







Dress: c/o French Connection
Ring: Lola Rose
Heels: Kurt Geiger


I seem to be wearing a lot of navy recently...I think this is my idea of embracing 'colour' for summer! I really love the peekaboo lace detail on this dress; worn with minimal accessories and a pair of statement shoes, this would make a great wedding-guest outfit.

Lust of the week: ASOS longline blazer




I'm sure I wasn't the only one who had a slight panic last weekend when news hit that the ASOS warehouse went up in flames, destroying God knows how much stock and causing the website to go down (ermaghaaad how am I going to get my ASOS fix?!) 

Anyway, thankfully that was only temporary and the site was back up and filled with beautiful newness to satisfy my lustful eye. This longline blazer is beautifully cut and makes a chic summer cover up.

Outfit: Navy jumpsuit






Jumpsuit: c/o Desire Clothing
Ring: Lola Rose
Flats: Topshop


I love warm sunny evenings in London - there's always something going on and I can wear things like this jumpsuit and not have to cover it up. I wore this to Taste of London last week, a food festival that showcases some of the best restaurants in the city and let's just say I spent the evening gorging on different dishes and prosecco. The foodie's answer to Glastonbury, if you will.

Talking of which, I'm going tomorrow! It's my first time and I'm really hoping the weather stays nice but I've packed the Hunters as a precaution. It means I won't really be contactable so if I don't reply to your emails/tweets, you'll know why. There is a post or two coming up though so keep your eyes peeled to the blog!

Lust of the week: Whistles mystic mountain print dress




This print...this colour...this dress! Absolutely love this 'mystic mountain' print dress from Whistles and it's half price too! In fact, the whole of the Whistles sale is bloody brilliant - I'm having to tie my hands behind my back to stop spending every penny I own in that shop at the moment.

P.S - I've been nominated for an award by ASOS Fashion Finder and would love your votes! Click here and 'heart' my look to vote.

Outfit: Oversized shirt with leather shorts






Shirt: Uniqlo (mens)
Shorts: H&M
Trainers: Nike
Backpack: ASOS


I feel like this warm weather is making my weekend style generally more casual; perhaps because it's making me want to get out and explore the city a bit more so I'm dressing more comfortably.

I love an oversized shirt, they go with anything (and if you can pinch it from your man's wardrobe - even better) and can be worn casually during the day like my outfit here, or smartened up with a pair of skinnies and heels for evening. 

P.S - I'm also hoping getting my legs out will mean they'll get get a bit of sun action...man they're pasty.

Outfit: Breton top with pleated midi skirt







Top: H&M (similar)
Belt: H&M (similar)
Skirt: Vintage (similar)
Flats: Topshop (similar)


I've been loving this outfit recently; it's light enough for this warm weather we've been having and it's perfect to go straight from the office to after-work drinks - no quick changes in the loo needed.

Lust of the week: Goldie maxi dress



I think I've died and gone to maxi heaven with this dress from Goldie. The rich orange colour and open back with harness-like detailing just scream long summer evenings. 

Dressed up with heels or dressed down with flats and minimal accessories, this is maxi dress perfection.

Beauty: the pale lip




I've been on the hunt for the perfect pale orange lipstick for what feels like FOREVER. I bought a great bright orange one last summer but I'm after something matte and a bit softer. Everything I've seen is either too bright, too red or too glossy and it's driving me mad! I'm starting to think this lipstick just doesn't exist. Have you seen this elusive lippy? Answers on a postcard please.

Anyway, I was on hunt number 27 for the perfect orange lipstick a few days ago when I came across 'Whimsical' in Toppers. Swabbed on my hand, it looked like I'd found exactly what I'd been looking for...then I put it on my lips and it was more pale peach than pale orange. DAMN; the search continues. 

Having said that, I've fallen in love with this shade so maybe it's a blessing in disguise. I normally bypass pink/peachy shades and go for something more bold but I actually think this could be my new summer fave. Until I find that non-existent pale orange one that is...

Outfit: clashing prints




Top: H&M
Belt: H&M
Pants: Topshop


Clashing prints for a sunny Sunday walk along Regents Canal in London. It was such a gorgeous day today...here's hoping it's here to stay for the rest of the summer! 

I love a good palazzo pant - these are from Topshop a few years ago but I've been seeing a few pop up on the high street this season. Paired with a light vest top and cinched in at the waist with a belt, they're perfect for a British summer.

Lust of the week: Front Row Shop dress with pleats



I recently came across Front Row Shop and boy, am I in love. Every piece on that site is perfect - I can just feel my bank account draining whenever I pop over there for a browse! This pleated smock dress is minimalist summer style all over, with just the right amount of girliness.

Outfit: white high neck top with asymmetric skirt






Sunglasses: Primark
Top: ASOS
Skirt: Topshop
Wedges: ASOS


How is it June already?! This year is going far too quickly...

A pretty simple look for me today, but one which is perfect for warm summer evenings in the city. I bought this top about a month ago and it's proven to be really versatile; almost like a luxe white tee, I've been wearing it with everything.
