Floral Dresses

This week I was given this beautiful floral blue dress as a gift all the way from Barcelona so unfortunately I can't give you a link but I have made a list of some lovely alternatives. 

A floral dress is a wardrobe essential as they can be worn in many seasons. I love the long sleeves on this dress it certainly gives it a boho feel and I never thought I would have my New Look boots out this early being as its "meant" to be Summer.

I styled the dress with a tan belt and a New Look blue Clutch.

Trendy Tribal

Happy Sunday! My tribal print outfit will hopefully brighten your day from the horrible rain we're having in England. 

My H&M blouse (£7.99) is covered in a vibrant tribal print made up of orange, ocean, white & mustard. They have made this pattern in multiple items in store and this style of blouse (button down with collar) is their signature style, great for tucking in jeans or skirts.

Because the print is so bright it works best with plain bottoms - enter my Primark beige jeans (£8) 

I accessorised with a H&M Orange bracelet which I wore for a wedding in a previous post. I'm not big on jewellery but this really caught my eye.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Abstract Blue

My shoe collection seems to be growing more & more and all I hear from my boyfriend is "not more shoes"! I think my habit of buying shoes is because I have very small feet at a size 3 and the shops always have that size available in the SALES.

These New Look Abstract Blue T Bar Flats are a great example at just £8 in the sale they have a vintage feel to them and the T-bar and pointed toe actually make my feet look bigger.

I styled the pretty flats with H&M Blue Shirt Dress (£14.99), tan belt and New Look Necklace

The shirt dress is a must have piece for every wardrobe - well you can never have too many dresses or shoes obviously. It's easy to style, comfortable to wear and good quality at 100% cotton.

I also bought another pair of shoes, lace heels this time but still blue!

The Fringe Waistcoat

I recently saw 70% off at Daisy Street so I thought I would have a browse me being me I saw this fringe waistcoat & instantly had to buy it at a bargain price of £6!

I have never purchased from them before but must say I'm very impressed fast delivery and the quality is fab.

I must admit I weren't sure what to style the waistcoat with at first but then I thought a plain lace tee from H&M would work well even a white floaty blouse if I had one. (I feel a trip to the shops coming on) Then what colour compliments cream? Tan of course. So I dug out another H&M beauty this asymmetric skirt plus not forgetting my new tan New Look lace up sandals (£13.50)

My fringe collection is now made up of a bag, leather jacket and waistcoat what next?!

Have you bought from Daisy Street recently?

Weekend in Cambridge

On Saturday me and the girls went to the beautiful city of Cambridge, having never been before I was very excited. Luckily it was sunny & hot all day (my fair skin was not loving it)

For the day I wore H&M printed shorts (£14.99) with a rust basic vest (£3.99) & New Look Lattice Sandals (£13.50)

When we first arrived in Cambridge we ate breakfast at Bills - Full English with a Melon, Peach & Raspberry Smoothie yummy!

After we went PUNTING with beautiful views of Cambridge we managed to only collide with a few boats busiest river I've ever seen

Eating strawberries & drinking Pink Moscato 

The girls

After we visited the rooftop bar in The Varsity Hotel a bit expensive but worth it when you see the views of Cambridge from up high

I must admit I actually prefer Cambridge to Oxford so much more character & lots of cute shops!

10 facts about Cambridge: 

1. St John’s College was used in the film Theory of Everything "May Ball’ scene, one of the largest set pieces in the film

2. Cambridge has the most Nobel Prizes mainly in physics.

Leather Fringing

Yes fringing has taken over my wardrobe a little bit I now have a bag, waistcoat (coming soon) & now this! I don't think it gets much better than leather & fringing when I was browsing the Matalan sale I spied this beauty of a jacket (£20)

In my wardrobe I already had neutral leather trim trousers from Forever 21 (£7.99) & a New Look black crop top (£5)

I accessorised with a snake clutch also New Look & Matalan Heels. 

This outfit can take me from office to drinks with the girls in just a change of the shoes. It is more of a sophisticated take on the Fringe look compared to all the tan 70s and as its black it's very versatile. 

Are you loving Fringing?
