Florals In Red & Off The Shoulder

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

This dress is literally SO AMAZING, hence my capitalisation!! I mean come on, it is off the shoulder, button down and the most perfect red floral (which is my favourite type of floral). I also love the high/low style of the dress, so shorter at the front and longer at the back.

I am actually looking forward to wearing this red floral dress in slightly cooler weather with black chunky ankle boots and a black leather biker jacket, the perfect look for Autumn.

If you are new to my blog then you’ll know how much I love Shein, the quality of this dress is amazing for only £23, and they have such a huge choice on their site. When you are buying from Shein, just a couple of things to be aware of, the delivery can take up to a month (totally worth the wait) and the sizes are usually slightly smaller than normal UK sizes.

Crop Tops & Perfect Summer Trousers

Black trousers for summer?? Are you mad?? Not mad, you guys just haven’t tried THESE black trousers. If you have been reading my blog lately you’ll know about my current love for UK brand Lucy & Yak of which are by far the coolest brand I have found lately.

Processed with VSCO with j1 presetI’ve been desperate for pair of black summer trousers for a while now, but they are usually all so tight and hot. However I have finally found this gorgeous black high-waisted pair they have a mega elasticised waist which makes them possibly the most comfortable trousers  have ever owned. Plus they look so cute with a little summer floral crop top, like this one from Topshop.

The top was an absolute Topshop bargain at at only £16, along with these cream mules from H&M and my Gucci Marmont. Plus how cute are these little beach huts! We went down to Whitstable for the day and it is such a beautiful place.

Cord Dungaree Love

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

So I discovered Lucy & Yak by chance on the shopping/selling app depop and was instantly obsessed with their brand. Number one, everything is handmade, in the UK, I mean we all do really want to know where out clothes have come from, and where better than here in the UK. Number two, they design their items to create curves on slim body types and room for those of us already blessed with curves. I mean come on, isn’t that just freaking cool!

Number three, these handmade black cord dungarees are only £30, plus I love how you can tie the straps. This makes these dungarees suitable for a few different sizes (for reference they are one size, and I am a size 8/10) even my beautiful yummy Mummy’s who want to still feel cool while pregnant.

I absolutely love the fit, I wore them all day in the sun, and because they are loose fitting it was like a dream! Oh also, they do these beauties in pink…..100% next on my list. I am wearing the dungarees with a yellow shirred off the shoulder crop top, and of course my Givenchy slides, which of course look good with everything!

Summer holiday planning with Shein

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

It’s a big Shein haul for you today guys, you know I love this brand and I have been thinking about my up and coming holiday to America for the last few months, so I thought why not start planning for it now!

I choose to purchase this button-up tie front dress and I absolutely love it, I love the tie front section, the buttons down the front and the midi length style (because girls, I know you know its either boobs or legs, ain’t nobody got time for both). I have this in a medium and its the most perfect comfy fit. I styled this dress with these lace-up sandals from Topshop, which weirdly twist as you walk…..meh they look good, even if your bare feet are on the actual floor 90% of the time!

The next thing I bought in my mini Shein haul is this stripped midi skirt, a really good dupe for a version I saw in Zara a couple of months ago. I will always be drawn to a midi skirt because I think they are just so easy to wear, no riding up, no potential butt cheeks falling out of the bottom! I know I always say how affordable Shein are, but just to remind you guys, this skirt was only £18.98…..

For me a classic combination (since I was about 12, is there an age limit on this sort of thing?!) is a midi skirt and a cropped top. This basic top is from New Look (and £3 in the sale!) and I love the 90’s style square neckline, plus a bit of blue on blue is always a winner in my eyes.

Clearly I have gone for a blue theme here, and this was genuinely a subconscious thing, I obviously like blue a lot! You guys know that I also love embroidery, and this embroidered dress is me in dress form! I am a UK size 8/10 and this is a size medium, it fits perfectly. I love a smock style dress (mainly because I can eat more food than I probably should).

This dress is my version of effortless dressing, and I am so excited to see what else I can find on Shein, mainly lots of items to add to my ever growing collection of embroidery & blue 🙂
