Summer Dresses.

Here in the UK we really have seen some beautiful weather, we’ve had a heat wave and it’s been bloody wonderful! mainly because I’ve got to wear some lovely dresses and visit the beach a lot. Summer sunshine always makes the world a happier place.

Lets get to it, here are some of my favourite summer dresses out there on the high street so far !!


  1. linen puff wrap dressfrom TOPSHOP

I love this wrap around dress ! the colour is perfect for summer it’s light and airy perfect to keep you cool, it has beautiful puff sleeves with cute ruffles on the arm cuffs. I’d personally chuck on a belt ( a nice thin belt, colour wise a green or a terracotta) around the high waist section just to give it a edgier look.



        2. Pale Blue Floral Maxi Dress, from NewLook.

You all need a beautiful Maxi dress in your life for summer I swear, and this one is so cute it’s a perfect summer style. It has a cool vintage vibe too it ( you all know i love that style) and the floral pattern is very sweet. Big Bonus it’s in the sale so go and grab a bargain before it goes !!



3. Red Button Camisole Dress , from Miss Selfridge.

This dress is super cute! and red !! It’s perfect for the hotter summer weather as it is lightweight, shorter length with thin spaghetti straps. It even has the bonus of pockets!! and I love a dress with pockets, chuck my lippy in one and my phone in the other and I’m away.


4. Oversized Denim shirt Dress , from Superdry.

I love a good shirt dress and one that’s denim is even better ! this one is from Superdry so expect great quality, but also it will be lightweight, for extra detail I’d probably chuck a belt around this one too to cinch in the waist, give that hour-glass figure. But if it gets to hot then take it off and let it flow.


5.White Bardot Dress , from Next.

OK this dress is to die for, its a Bardot style so that’s the first amazing thing ( no tan lines) secondly it is white and I love a white dress for summer something so clean, fresh, classic and simple about it. It features a tie waist and a button up fastening, with cute broderie finish. It has a very 50s style feel to it also, this has to be my favourite out of them all ! I’ve saved the best till last.


There you have it some of my favourite summer dresses out on the high street now !!

Let me know whats your fav, and if you have any you love at the moment, always on the look out for more!!

Wardrobe Essentials

Sometimes I look inside my wardrobe and think to myself i have far to many items !! and sometimes i think i don’t have enough how can that be? i don’t know ! but i need to de-clutter big time. So sharing this with you will probably help me de-clutter at the same time!

SO, what does your wardrobe need to consist of ? here’s where I’m hoping to help you with these essential items and maybe like me you can get rid of un-wanted, unnecessary items, and get back a wardrobe that isn’t bursting at the seams. Let’s start !


Tailored Coat :

Structure!! it’s all about structure, shape needs to not be a worry as long as you have this key ingredient! It can have straight lines, cinched waist, short long whatever as long as it’s structured.

TIP: If you can only own one coast due to costs etc then make it a neutral colour, they are most versatile and you wont get tired of it! easy to accessories also,



Lets start with what jackets to own

  1. Biker Jacket
  2. Denim Jacket
  3. Bomber Jacket
  4. Blazer

Biker Jacket: What a great way to add an edgy rock look to your wardrobe, opt for a short biker jacket and layer it over longer layers. Such as T-shirts, sweaters and oversized dresses.

Denim Jacket: Try to find an old one or a thrift shop one, distressed but not artificially distressed. Wear with dresses, T-shirts, sweaters, well actually anything they are so versatile. Customise it for a unique look with brooches, pins, dyes or fabric pens and add your own detail.

Bomber Jacket: A fun piece to add to your wardrobe but not the most versatile, due to most bomber jackets come in a range of colours. Mix it with basics such as a plain white Tee or dresses, neutral ones though.  Experiment with the length get short or long depending on your taste.

Blazer: A general rule of thumb is to make sure the blazer shoulder seams follow the lines of your shoulders. Hip length, single breasted one button blazers are suited for most body types so if your unsure then stick to these ones.



OK, there are many types of dresses so whats best to definitely own? here are 5 essential ones.

  1. LBD, little Black Dress
  2. Bright Cocktail Dress
  3. Evening Dress
  4. Warm Dress
  5. Beach/City Dress


Little Black Dress: Make sure its a perfect fit, Not much detail on it making it easy to dress up or down!

Bright Cocktail Dress: Always make sure it enhances your complexion, perfect dress to own as there are always events happening and weddings to attend.

Evening Dress: Something more edgy then the LBD, maybe sequins, transparency or an edgy cut to it .

Warm Dress: This is for the cooler seasons trust me you will need one, make sure its comfortable for layering up also.

Beach/City Dress: Floaty works for both beach and city it will give you some breathing space and air. Floral dresses are a cute style, bringing in that femininity dress down with sandals or flats, dress up with wedges or kitten heels.


A timeless basic shirt is a must have for your wardrobe, it can be casual or sophisticated. Make sure its good quality fabric and the correct fit, collars such as peter pan or Victorian can’t be worn open so be aware of that. Dress the shirt/blouse down by rolling up the sleeves and opening a few buttons, maybe even tie it at the front. Dress it up with Accessories, the fitting being more tailored rather than being to baggy.


Generally opt for basics as this will come in handy and goes with any look, So your plain trusty white T or black tee is fab. V-necks and scoop are sexier and easy to layer, where as crew necks are sportier and thicker to layer.

Avoid long-sleeved t-shirts unless layering them.


Ok let’s start with the basic colours to have.

  1. Dark Blue
  2. Light Blue
  3. White
  4. Black

Now the styles to own.

  1. Skinny
  2. Flare
  3. Boyfriend


Skinny Jeans: Either high or low-waisted, cropped or full-length skinny jeans suit every girl with curves contrary to what you may have heard. They make hips appear smaller without adding and width, however if your legs lack curves opt for another style jean such as the boyfriend jeans.

Flare Jeans: These are tight at the hip and flare out from either below hips or below knees. For a classic look opt for high-waisted ones, the width tends to shorten your silhouette so wear with heels or platforms.

Boyfriend Jeans: Worn low on the hips with low pockets on the bottom, these jeans suit the more androgynous woman, tall slimmer woman or curvy sporty woman. I like to roll them up to show my ankle and wear them with ankle boots or kitten heels.



  1. The Classy flat
  2. The Summer Sandal
  3. The Sexy Heel
  4. Sneakers

The Classy Flat: We should all own flats our feet need a rest, it’s useful to own two pairs one for winter one for summer. There are loafers, ballet pumps,derbies/oxfords and many more.

The Summer Sandal:  When it comes to summer you definitely need a light version of everything in you wardrobe and that includes shoes. There are so many options out there to choose from such as flat sandals, heeled sandals, platforms and wedges.

The Sexy Heel: We all need a great pair of sexy heels, empowering us as we where them. But what do we go for ? how high ? here’s a few that make great essentials for the wardrobe. They could be courts, ankle boots, thigh-high boots or even peeptoes, here are my top 3 sexy heels .

  1. Court shoes
  2. Ankle boots
  3. Long Boots

Sneakers:  The best sneakers you can own are a pair of basic, neutral tones one they go with practically everything ! maybe own two pairs one slightly of warmer colour. Below the ankle sneakers work better than higher top ones as they are easier to match outfits. The best thing about neutral sneakers is they will never go out of trend, unlike crazy shapes and colours that come and go so fast ! then your stuck with a pair of sneakers that are outdated ( I kinda like that though )

Here’s some timeless sneakers to own :  

  1. Converse
  2. Adidas Stan Smith
  3. Vans Authentic
  4. Nike Air

Latest Trends For 2018

What’s Trending?…


2018 is here and we are seeing the return of tailoring , Whether you opt for a pant suit or pair a blazer with a white tee and vintage denim, suiting has become modern and cool rather than corporate. Look out for tweeds and checks in double breasted shapes with strong shoulders signals a return to power dressing! The power blazer is back! Complete with statement shoulder pads, this iconic fashion staple from 30 years ago is on-trend again!. Rock it for yourself,  be sure to choose a style with vintage checks. You can even borrow a blazer from the boys if need be, then team it up with skinny jeans or a skirt and heels.

NewLook have some fab items to fit this trend.


Polka Dots …

My current favourite ! Street style is undoubtedly louder, brighter and bolder for the Spring/Summer 18 season. Even the simple polka dot was enlarged to unmissable proportions. Whether it was on a dress, top or pants, these dots instantly became the focus of every outfit. As Marc Jacobs said There is never a wrong time for a polka dot”.  Polka dots are a timeless classic , taking us back to the 50s elegance with the unforgettable style icons like Audrey Hepburn or Marilyn Monroe.  A strong vintage vibe is in the limelight with black & white polka dots stealing the attention.

BooHoo have some lovely items with polka dots !



Whether it’s lilac, lemon,pink or duck egg blue, expect to see an array of fashion’s prettiest shades this season. They are elegant and sweet looking they can be incorporated with almost any colour. They can be mixed and matched with other pastels, as well as neutral hues. If you are an edgy girl or classy lady, there are so many ways to make this work for you, they are totally in this year! Personally, I find these hues sweet, delicate and ladylike and i for one will most definitely be wearing them.

Topshop have some wonderful pastel colours this year!

Back To Bold…

Put some shades on because things are about to get bright. From primary shades through to neon accents, expect to see vibrant pinks, reds, yellows and more worn in either monochrome blocks or artfully spliced together—apparently not to be toned down with a neutral or two. The new primary colour palette celebrates fashion’s power to generate confidence, and the effect is irresistible.

Next have some bold colours to choose from.



Decent Exposure…

It’s all about what’s underneath, this season’s trend for transparency means that bras and knickers have been on show almost everywhere you look.  The transparency in sheer provides a sense of sexiness while being feminine and soft there’s no doubt about it, it’s not going anywhere so embrace it. From sheer , to mesh to plastic, see-through is coming in many forms from bags to shoes , from socks to coats it’s everywhere.

Check out Shein for some great choices in transparency.

Some of this seasons fashion trends with lots more out there , experiment with fashion after all you can be anything you want to be and wear what you want to wear.
