Springtime Flowers

Hooray for the Springtime weather we’ve had recently! A huge dose of sunshine and blue skies, and I wanted to make the most of it in case it didn’t stick around for too long (today’s clouds and showers confirmed that!). I don’t have very many floral dresses in my wardrobe, it’s not a print I usually like but the subtle flowers on a black background are definitely more in my comfort zone. You might have spotted another floral dress on my Instagram, so the anti-floral-dress tide might be turning, watch this space! ; ).

Anyway, I’ve neglected my little bunny ears ASOS bag for too long, especially after my last post with my new unicorn bag (someone’s clearly got a thing for animal shaped bags, ahem..). Finished off with my old favourite Zara hat, I felt like I had the right outfit on for transitioning into warmer Springtime weather-without ditching the skin-coloured tights just yet…x

Unicorns Are Real

It’s been a little too long since my last post, and if you follow me over on Twitter or Instagram you’ll know it’s because I’m now working full-time in the social media team at ASOS! I started just over a month ago and since then it’s been a bit of a whirlwind, and at times there just haven’t been enough hours in the day to blog. But I’m working on it! And if you’re happy to stick around please do : )

Last weekend I visited Brighton and it was perfect weather to be there. Even though my jacket kept me warm as the sun went down, it was finally appropriate to ditch the black tights, hurrah!- though I did replace them with flesh-coloured tights (because we’re not quite there yet). It’s one of my more simple outfits, but with a unicorn bag, chunky white shoes and a beautifully engraved gold bracelet, you don’t need much else to do the talking ; ). I spent the Sunday afternoon walking around a pretty park and ended the day with fish and chips for dinner- heaven!

Clueless

Judging by my awkward standing in some of these photos, it doesn’t look like I’m having the best of times, which couldn’t be further from the truth! When Missguided kindly got in touch asking me to style up an outfit based on my favourite Spring/Summer ’14 look, I didn’t think I’d be going for grunge, especially not with pastel being one of the other trends! But, something about this slip dress, the faux leather panel on the top underneath, and the accessories had me picturing a cuter-than-grunge outfit that I could make my own. A friend even remarked that my outfit looked very ‘Clueless’ and I take that as a big compliment!

Helping me finish off the Clueless-inspired outfit is my new Anna Lou of London personalised necklace. Ever since I could remember I’ve been correcting people who misheard my name, so when Anna Lou got in touch asking me to be one of their ambassadors, I was not only extremely grateful and excited, but finally felt like I had something to hand the next time I met someone who mistook me for a ‘Julia’ (which will be very soon, no doubt!). You’ll be seeing plenty of this little necklace; it hasn’t left my neck since I got it last week! x
