Dress - Glamorous*

There's just something about this style of dress that I can't resist. The over sized styling makes it brilliant for a comfortable yet glamorous cover up and this shape also looks amazing paired with chunky heels - those pins will look super slender. The print of this is extremely eye-catching and I loved it as soon as I clocked eyes on it - a slight oriental theme and so easy to pair up with other pieces, hence the grey shoes - I love this slight clash. I was tempted to pop on some matching blue heels, but as I've wore those so much recently I thought I'd give you a break! Glamorous, you've done well with this one.

So, last week was a damn good one in TT land. I got to be in a photo & video shoot with John Lewis to talk about the Winterflora trend, and it was the best day ever - I had so much fun! I'm always so grateful for some of the amazing opportunities that this little blog gives me, sometimes I feel like I have to pinch myself to make sense of it all! The photos and video will be available soon and of course I'll share it with you guys first (follow me on Twitter for updates!) But for now I vlogged the day for my channel, you can watch it below...

Kimono - New Look
Vest - New Look
Jeans - UNIQLO*
Shoes - Lipsy via Very*

If you follow me on instagram you would have noticed my denim outfits featuring some lovely UNIQLO jeans. I was asked to partake in the #7DayDenim challenge, which was to style an outfit for seven days using three pairs of jeans from their de (if you missed these, take a look on my instagram!) I absolutely love denim and jeans are most definitely a key item in my daily wardrobe. I found the Uniqlo denim range brilliant - comfortable, excellent fit to size and a luxurious soft material (can't be doing with jeans that resemble cardboard, afterall!) This outfit is my current go-to, a breezy kimono cover up which is great with this rubbish unpredictable British weather. I also paired it with my favourite colour pop heels by Lipsy via Very, these are such a brilliant way to enhance the colour in an outfit.

UNIQLO are currently running a pretty cool competition, giving you the chance to win a £200 gift voucher. You can find full details here. To enter you must follow UNIQLO UK on instagram & upload your ultimate denim look with the hashtag #UNIQdenim, make sure you tag @UNIQLO_UK too!

Top - Reverse*
Shorts - H&M
Shoes - Primark
Daisy Crown - Roses & Clementines*
Lips - Chanel
I call this my 'if I was going to a festival' outfit. This gypsy style top is absolutely perfect for festival season.. and well, Summer in general (I would totally rock this over a bikini on holiday too) I love the open back, light material and of course the eye-catching red rose print, which is beautiful. I picked up these light weight shorts from H&M and they have been perfect throughout Summer - slightly smart which make them perfect for more dressed up occasions and still a decent length - I can't be doing with these short shorts anymore. I also received this daisy garland from Roses & Clementines recently which again is perfect for festivals and holiday. These floral crowns always make me think of myself when I was younger, I would have absolutely loved this in my early teens! I feel like a fairy. 
Hope you are all enjoying your bank holiday weekend. Mine has been pretty busy so far, which way too much wine involved. I may need a detox next week..

Playsuit - Chella
Necklace - Anna Lou of London*
Shoes - New Look
Lips - Rimmel, Kate Moss
 
 I'll always be attracted to black clothing.. I try to stray from it but there's just something that keeps pulling me back in. I do however feel that although this playsuit is black, the white stripe adds a pleasant summer feel and it is therefore okay to wear during my 'black clothes rehab' (I kid.. I could never do that..) Chella are a brand sold in Topshop, so it might be a little tricky to pick this up, but it's still a little monochrome inspiration for you. I am also loving this nautical anchor necklace recently from Anna Lou of London, they have some really fun pieces that are subtle but still help create a statement. Of course I added a bright lip and those New Look wedges - a really quick and simple outfit, perfect for some bank holiday jaunts! (just don't blame me for the hangover..)
 
So, bank holiday weekend! What are you guys doing for it? Please tell me you'll be having a Monday lay in, go on.. you deserve it.
