The most exciting trend of summer 2018

Ok, ok so maybe I am being a little dramatic about this, but however this outfit does lead me quite nicely into my fav summer trend of 2018. I am so into mustard and yellow this year, and I am so happy that lots of stores seem to be stocking items in this colour. Also this dress from Nasty Gal, I mean how beaut is it! I adore the button detailing at the front and also the split, I think these extra details make it so flattering too, drawing your eye to the centre of your body.

I love how this dress can worn by itself, without the need for any accessories, however I do love a good accessory. My Gucci belt is of course one of my fav accessories, and actually goes with any outfit. I know you guys may have read this before but just a little tip, I bought the smallest men’s belt and put extra couple of holes in, its makes it cheaper than the women’s version. Also can you believe my mum just produced this amazing straw bag from inside a cupboard, and gave it to me! I’ve never seen anything like it, its so unique.

So I am sure you guys have worked out my favourite trend of summer 2018 by now, its the humble but amazing maxi dress. It’s the first trend in ages that has actually made me shout out loud, whoop! Thanks goodness that there is a trend this summer that is crazy flattering on every body shape, is comfy and honestly looks so good on absolutely everyone! The old faithful maxi dress is back, yeahhhh! I love the look of a really beautiful flowing maxi dress on a bright summers day, and so happy that this trend is here to stay.

Reasons why you don’t have anything to wear!

Lets just talk about the most beaut comfy sandals ever, from Ipanema at Hervia these guys have just released the most amazing minimal range in collaboration with Philippe Starck,  due to this they are so stylish. I hate to sound like my mum but they also wipe clean, being white this is so important. Also I think everyone needs a ruffle dress for summer, this one is unfortunately from Topshop last year, but I will link some other similar versions below. Also don’t get me started on my straw obsession, straw hats, straw bags, it really does say summer to me.

So I wanted to talk to you guys about why sometimes you may look in your wardrobe and not be able to find anything to wear, honestly you are not alone, this happens to me all of the time;

You don’t invest in basics that fit well

Honestly don’t get me started on this one, I have so many cheap white t-shirts that don’t fit properly or go out of shape so quickly. Soooo many jeans that are too tight, pinch me in weird places, are badly made and just not fit for purpose anyway you look at it! I think the amount of money I must have spent on rubbish items over the years, but so many of them, that I could have spent the same amount of money on an amazing items that would have lasted for years! I think the items that I need the most are white t-shirts, the perfect white oversized shirt (linen for the summer), the perfect black and navy trousers and of course jeans, pale ones, blue and black, they will all be going on my shopping list that’s for sure!!

You have too many clothes

It can be stupidly over whelming when you look into your wardrobe and just see a mass of clothes, unorganised and staring back at you, how would you be able to see what to wear? The good stuff in hidden underneath everything else! Only keep things that you absolutely adore and really do bring you joy, sell everything else or give it to charity.

Don’t know what goes together – Hang your clothes in outfits

This is something that I am despite to try, especially for my work outfits, because I cannot be bothered on a Monday morning to think crap, what shirt goes with these trousers etc. Also if you know a combination works well and you felt great in it then remember it for later. This task also helps you find holes in your wardrobe that you might not have spotted before, like you have tons of tops but nothing to go with them.

Thanks for reading
