Channeling Vogue

Here is the second of my holiday posts, I feel as if I'm channeling a bit of Vogue here with the outfit and background and the fact my Dad is a great photographer. A girl can dream right?

Right, as for the dress, if you've been following my blog from the very beginning you may recognise this dress when I blogged it in March when I first started. However, I took it away with me in the hopes I'd get to wear it again because it's just stunning. Low and behold an opportunity arose. The dress itself is super fitted but not too tight or short which I sometimes find with Missguided. I'm wearing a size 8 and girls if you want to grab a bargain this dress is now £9.99 in the sale!!

I paired the dress with, yes you guessed it, my favourite lace kimono which featured in my last post. As I said before, the versatility of this kimono is never-ending and I think it looks super chic with the dress. I then wore my metallic chunky sandals to give me a bit of a lift and to finish off the outfit.
I really love some of these pictures, but I think it's because the backdrop is so stunning.

Roses are Red

Good afternoon everyone! This time last week I found out some extremely exciting news... I've been shortlisted for this years Cosmopolitan Blogger Awards in the 'Best New Fashion Blog' category!! I cannot believe I've made it into the top 10 it's just mad considering I've only been blogging since March! I'm so grateful to everyone who voted for me, thank you! AND if you'd like to see me win would you mind voting again, that would be fab! There is a link to the page on the right of my blog, just click on the Cosmo picture and vote 'Seasons Come and Go', thank you so much!

Anyway, on to my next outfit post. This may be my fave outfit yet! I love how photogenic the outfit is, so you may find this post a little picture heavy, apologies!
Firstly, the heavenly two piece I'm wearing is from the lovely ladies at My Bandage Dress and is absolutely stunning. The quality of the piece is amazing, it's such thick material and fits so well to your body, it gives you a great shape and in my case it made me feel rather sexy!! I think I was given the medium which fit perfectly for me as the top requires no bra and I'm quite busty, so needed a fair amount of coverage! They offer this two piece in many different colours, such as red, navy blue and champagne! They will definitely have something that will tickle your fancy!
I styled mine up a little differently, as I wanted to show the different ways you can wear it. So I wore my beautiful kimono and new red flower crown from the stunning company Le Lapin. Take a look at their collection of jewellery and flower crowns, you won't be disappointed!!

It Takes Two

Good afternoon everyone. So as per I'm typing this post up in between shifts, as I'm finding time to be lacking recently! Anyway, last Saturday I went to my Aunty's for our annual summer BBQ (except this year we had paella!) and I wanted to blog my outfit. However, my extremely fashionable cousin was sporting a gorgeous dress and thought I'd do a bit of a couple post to show you both of our outfits!

I went for a pair of slouch monochrome trousers which I love, they are so comfortable and easy to wear! I wanted some palazzo pants but think I've decided they don't suit me, so the slouch style was a match made in heaven for me! I paired them with my new knitted sleeveless jumper from Zara's amazing sale, it was only £9.99 so of course I bought it in two colours! Finally, I wore my super comfy Topshop sandals!

Now, the gorgeous Camille wore a midi dress from Zara (also in the sale), the print is just divine! I recognised it from trousers that they sold but I had never seen this dress version before seeing it on her, and I think she looks absolutely fab! Not many could pull off this style of dress easily. Camille paired the dress with white Topshop Birks, which have also been featured by me on many previous posts - great minds think fashion!!

Sports Luxe

Good afternoon everyone!
Just quickly typing up this post before I start work. I have so many other things to get blogged next week so keep an eye out! 
So this post was really inspired by the recently trending sports luxe style. As you all know the sales are on and could not resist popping into Zara to see what bargains they had to offer as I LOVED their ss14 collection! I picked up a few tops, one being this pink number. I wanted this when it was full price but never got around to buying it, thank god I waited as for £19.99 I feel it's a winner! It's like my favourite top at the moment so easy to wear, it can be dressed up or down, personally I love it with a pair of Birks and Joni jeans. However, for this post I wore my black Joni jeans and my (rather old and very grubby) white astrix boots. I still love these boots but they are just so filthy I need a way to clean them up, if anyone has any tips let me know pretty please :)
