THE BACKLESS JUMPSUIT



Looking back at this outfit I probably should've paired the jumpsuit with a slick pair of pumps to avoid looking like a potential circus clown but I usually just photograph my outfits before I'm heading out so they're OOTDs in the truest sense of the word. Perhaps I could make the clown look cool anyway. I fell in love with this ASOS jumpsuit instantly, the wide floaty legs, the beautiful colours, so perfect for summer. However my favourite part is the distinct lack of a back of course. There's just something so understatedly sexy yet elegant about backless designs and I love how this jumpsuit can be versatile enough to be worn during the day or night.

What are your opinions on full length jumpsuits? I wasn't sure whether I could pull them off at first but now that I've tried one I just love how effortless they are.

SAILOR SMOCK


The Whitepepper dress / Office shoes / Wildfox sunglasses / Daniel Wellington watch*

Two words. Sailor and smock. In one dress. It's safe to say I've found the perfect dress though The Whitepepper have always excelled when it comes to providing me with this opinion every time they come out with a new collection. Of course I'm yet again wearing my lace up flats because true to my word, I have been living in them and I think my personal style blog should reflect that instead of it seeming like I only wear things once for the sake of it. I sometimes catch myself changing my outfits due to whether something's been photographed for the blog before (any other fashion bloggers have this problem?) but I think it's rather important for us to break this stigma. Outfit repeating shouldn't be frowned upon, it's something entirely normal and if you think about it, it actually showcases how much we love a certain ensemble... and if we love it then what's stopping us from wearing it all the freaking damn time? Embrace those favourite items of clothing that you live in and overwear, let's set the challenge to see how many different ways you can style them instead. 

Now that's off my chest, I also wanted to address my slightly pink legs in these photos because I find it absolutely hilarious that I burned them... in the bath. Yep you heard right, no sun involved, they burnt from obliviously soaking in scalding water that was way too hot for my skin. Tell me this has happened to you before and it's not just a sign that I don't feel heat and am destined to become the next mother of dragons...

OFF THE GRID







 Zara top / Topshop trousers / Valentino flats / Proenza Schouler bag / Totoro & No-Face key rings / YSL ring

Monochrome is just so effortless. I used to be all about the crazy colours and prints but it's taken me until now to fully appreciate that black and white doesn't have to be boring. I feel strangely grown up. I recently picked up this top from Zara which has become my version of the staple classic white shirt in every girl's wardrobe. Today I've styled it with some grid print trousers I've had forever yet I know I won't be getting rid of anytime soon, they're another classic piece in my opinion. Excuse the rather noticeable stockings on my feet, as unattractive as they are, they're quite great at preventing blisters, though these flats have since then been successfully broken in, yay! I'm back in London now after a brief trip to Singapore to visit my family. Unfortunately it wasn't quite the holiday I expected, not long after I arrived I contracted something called 'walking pneumonia' and was confined to my bed for a week. I'd never been more relieved when I was given the all clear to fly home. The Singaporean climate never seems to agree with me anyway.

Do you have holiday plans this summer?

FLUTTERBY



Free People dress via ASOS / ZARA boots (similar) / ASOS sunglasses / Primark bag

I'd never owned anything by Free People before (their prices often make me feel light-headed) though I've always admired their dreamy, bohemian aesthetic. During one of my ASOS browsing sessions I came across this dress on sale and before I knew it, it had made it's way into my cart. I'm really pleased with it, along with it being in a gorgeous cut and print that I thought was quite unique, the material is extremely breathable and lightweight. Chuck on some huge sunnies and ankle boots, further accessorised with messy hair and a bare face, ditch the designer handbag for one rather rogue pup on your arm, and you've got the perfect recipe for a relaxed, early summer's day.

DOLLY





I've been quite obsessed with ASOS recently (apparent by my last few outfit posts I'd say), I feel like everything they've come out with has been so on point (and so bad for my bank account). They've definitely become the ultimate online shopping destination. When they got in touch about styling some of their occasion wear pieces, I jumped at the opportunity as in my opinion they have such a great range of evening dresses and accessories at quite reasonable price points. To start with they sent me this beautiful embellished clutch, quirkily emblazoned with the words 'HI' and 'BYE' on each side and I was to style up an outfit around this piece. I chose this absolutely gorgeous dress that I'd actually had my eye on for a while, it's so fun and feminine with a floaty, sheer organza overlay and cute little bow accents (it also comes in red). I added my favourite style of shoe (ankle strap, mid-heel, pointy toe) but this pair is especially magical with its glitter and jewel encrusted heel, which I think compliments the clutch perfectly. It seems they are currently sold out on the ASOS site at the time of writing this but I have seen them come back into stock so do keep an eye out. Alternatively ASOS have a lot of super similar styles out at the moment which I'll link below. I love this outfit, it's totally something I'd have worn to my highschool ball or prom if I could turn back time.

THE 70s FLARE JEAN







H&M jeans / Vintage blouse / Zara boots (old) / American Apparel hat / Prada bag (borrowed from mum)

Not too long ago I made my first foray into the world of flares and after loving my pair from ASOS so much, I decided to go on the hunt for some flared jeans. As most of you know I'm definitely not a jeans person day to day, what with my struggles to find a pair that sit right on both my waist and hips. I was reluctant to spend too much moola on a new trend that I wanted to try out so I quickly disregarded looking for a pair in Topshop and ASOS. Wandering down the high street I spotted these oh-so-70s pair on the H&M mannequin and took a very necessary detour to try them on. They're definitely more wide-legged than I had originally envisioned but I love them all the same. They're high waisted, slightly stretchy without compromising the denim feel and the perfect length to wear with heels or platforms. I've always been partial to how denim looks when paired with the colour red so I completed the outfit with a vintage blouse and all red accessories.
