The Italian Gardens

Dress – c/o Jarlo, Floral Headpiece – LouLou Loves You (similar here), Shoes – ASOS

You might find it hard to believe, but the location for my third and final shoot with the wonderful Amber was literally a stone’s throw from Lancaster Gate station, in Kensington Gardens! The gardens are so beautiful, and so well hidden from the buzz of the cars and throngs of people just outside. Amber suggested this place once I’d told her about my new Jarlo dress, and it’s the most perfect place to wear it. The dress has a figure-hugging fit with a high neck and enough material in the skirt that made me want to swish about like a princess- or at least try to with my (very high) heels on…!

And if you like the dress and fancy it for yourself, you’re in luck because I’m giving one away! All you have to do to enter is follow me over on Twitter and comment on this post. I’ll pick someone at random next Friday and will make sure your dress is on its way to you ASAP, hurrah! : ) x

Thank you Amber for the photos! 

Tropical Blue

Dress – c/o Warehouse, Bag – Vintage, Shoes – c/o Vagabond via Zalando

If you’ve been in a high street shop this year you’ll have seen tropical prints galore, anywhere and everywhere! You might remember my very subtle take on it previously, and now I’m back for round two (and I clearly have a thing for blue!). This double layer Warehouse dress is quite the flattering number- being a very straight-up-and-down kinda girl means you appreciate when a dress gives you a little more hourglass shape than usual…

And in keeping with my current (and let’s face it, forever) penchant for all things matchy-matchy, I dealt with the heat by plaiting my hair and finishing it off with a blue ribbon. Sometimes the little things really do make all the difference! You might have spotted these sandals over on my Instagram already, but let’s take a second to appreciate the perfect 90s-and-comfy heel for summer- I’ve been pairing it with everything from jeans to pencil skirts and mini dresses, so keep a look out for it appearing on here again soon! x

Grey Is The New Black

What I Wore: Top – ASOS, Bag – c/o Marc B, Jeans – ASOS, Shoes – c/o Marco Tozzi via Zalando 

Forgive me if I’ve taken the wear-similar-colours-in-one-outfit thing a little too far here with the pastel blue, light grey and white ensemble. But when I received this pretty Marc B bag and pointed flats in the same shade of grey, in the same week, it was basically fate, right? And because my go-to favourites always seem to be ASOS these days (hey, I do work there after all) it was only fitting to team grey with white and blue. Even though I’ve long thought wearing grey is never, ever a fun colour, I’m inclined to disagree now! Especially when the prettiest pair of pointed flats (spot the cutout sides) and a fits-everything-perfectly kind of bag are made in grey- it’s totally the new black ; ) x

P.S. The title of this blog post miight have been inspired by my favourite series Orange Is The New Black…if you haven’t heard of it, do check it out!
