Floral Refresh | SS18 Pink Feminine Look

Dune handbag, H&M dress, Aldo shoes, Quay sunglasses, NEXT earrings, thrifted headband

I spent all morning falling down a Dolce & Gabbana rabbit hole. It started on Instagram, continued onto Pinterest, and I ended up daydreaming about D&G children's outfits. I bought this dress in H&M a few weeks ago and was waiting for the perfect weather to wear it. I was so inspired by the D&G style of the dress - I paired it with a crystal headband and black pointed-toe ballet pumps to really emphasise the feminine-princess vibe; and black tassel half-hoop earrings for a spring-time feel.

90's Spring Red Floral Tea-Dress

I bought this gorgeous red and white floral tea dress at the end of last summer in the Topshop sale and have had it hanging in my wardrobe since, so I was so excited to wear it as soon as I heard that we would be getting a wave of warmer weather. I was inspired by the chic relaxed vintage styles seen on Chronicles of Her and Reformation. I also have been loving the small sunglasses trend for years but the huge spring-summer trend of them has definitely reignited my love for them. Another massive trend for spring/summer that I have always liked but never felt like it was my style, is the western trend. I like how the white leather jacket subtly nods to the trend without being too obvious. The gold layered jewellery has become a staple for me, now, and I paired the outfit with Stan Smiths for a playful 80's/90's casual feel.

Styling A Blazer For SS18 – Casual Off-Duty (+ Current Spring Favourites)

Firstly, I LOVE how these photos turned out - I love the use of natural lighting (I hardly had to touch these photos up) and the wall of greenery as a backdrop. This outfit is a more casual, relaxed version of this one that I posted a week ago.

Cinderella-Blue Lace and Silver Evening Look

This was the outfit I wore for my 18th birthday party (dinner and cocktails). I wanted to look preppy, sophisticated and conservatively 'put-together' - à la Blair Waldorf and Fallon Carrington - while still looking glitzy, glam and modern.

Brown Faux Snakeskin Boots + Blazer Look | Spring ‘18

This was my 'birthday look'. I love: the checked blazer (a HUGE trend this season, which I also talked about in this post), the brown faux snakeskin boots, the 60's inspired velvet black headband (just a craft-store ribbon which I have lately been loving pinning underneath my hair to look like a very vintage mod-style headband - also a giant trend this season), the 70's inspired Etro sunglasses (a gorgeous birthday gift), the contrast of the preppy upper-half with the faux leather trousers to add a modern feel to the outfit.
