What I Wore: Kimono – c/o Lily Lulu, Top – c/o Rock On Ruby, Skirt – Urban Outfitters, Bag – c/o Paul’s Boutique, Sandals – Bertie
I don’t play favourites but this outfit has to be one of my most liked combos of the summer, and I hope it isn’t too difficult to see why. I was asked by the lovely ladies behind Rock On Ruby to design my own slogan tee, and of course I said yes! If you’re a Scrabble fan (or even if you’re not) you can tell this word won’t be scoring you highly in the game, but I love the print and hey, it is cute! You can buy your own Cute top here.
And deciding to go for all-light-everything, I matched it up with the prettiest fringed kimono and my latest Paul’s Boutique bag. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you’ll know I have my fair share of Paul’s Boutique bags, and this is the latest addition (they’re also newly available on John Lewis)! To top it all off, my hair stayed straight all day AND my eyeliner flicks almost matched…it might have been three weeks ago but I’m still pretty pleased with things going my way that day! x
What I Wore: Jacket – Nasty Gal, Top – ASOS, Jeans – ASOS, Shoes – c/o UGG Australia, Necklace – c/o MoonTide
Last weekend I made a familiar trip down to Brighton as part of UGG Australia‘s #BestDaysOfSummer campaign. I probably could have picked somewhere more ‘new’ or further away but Brighton is where I’m happiest, having lived there for three years while at Sussex University. You might have caught snippets of my day over on Instagram, and it really was one of my favourite days this summer; fancy lunch in the North Laines, shopping in Beyond Retro, finding the cutest egg cup ever and tea and cake in my favourite corner cafe pretty much sums up my idea of the perfect kind of day.
Plus I got to wear in my new UGG shoes and nope, not a boot in sight! These reptile print flats are certainly unique (mum I do not own something similar) so I let it do all the talking, wearing my new ASOS favourites along with the prettiest MoonTide necklace. For someone who always forgets to wear jewellery, I’ve put on this necklace every morning since I received it! It might not be the most eye-catching outfit, but for a Saturday spent walking (and eating) lots, it suited me just fine! x
P.S. UGG are running a competition, ending on Saturday where if you share your UGG summer photos and stories using the hashtag #bestdaysofsummer there’s a chance to win a £300 UGG giftcard, check it out and enter yourself here!
What I Wore: Dress – c/o Desire (on sale!), Shoes – c/o Vagabond via Zalando, Bag – Vintage
Finally, the very last post from Paris! The three of us (mother, sister and me) decided we’d spend our Saturday evening in the nicest restaurant we could find, with a three-course meal and an outfit to match. Which explains the slightly fancier-than-usual dress and earrings (I never wear earrings) in this outfit post. I love the detail on the skirt of this Desire dress- a little skin peeking through the lace design makes even this straight-up-and-down dress ever so slightly risqué..!
And typically I took a few photos while out and about by Pont des Arts, the famous love lock bridge. It was more than humbling to walk across the bridge and try to get an idea of just how many locks were on it- it’s beautiful to see love displayed in such a strikingly visual way. I have seen news stories about there being too many locks on the love lock bridge (eek!), so maybe it might not be the best place to show your love in the coming years, but as it stands, it’s wonderful to see people being so in love to solidify it in this way. Maybe next time we’ll declare our love on more solid ground though, eh? ; ). ‘Til next time Paris! x
