I’m a Brit girl through and through but any excuse for a party is all good with me, in honour of Independence Day I have put together a selection of all American patriotic treats…
She’s a super stylish lady that seems to get slightly overlooked with her eclectic look but Fearne Cotton has an amazing style and at the minute she is my style crush. She has a talent for putting together some really interesting outfits and I love that she wears things from her own range. Below are some of my favourite looks and some copy cat pieces should you want to steal the lovely lady’s style.
The festival season is upon us and yes yes I know there are a million and one posts and articles about festival dressing but so what?! I like it, I’m already planning on what to wear to the ones I’m going to. I’m like a cameleon kids, changing my look for the festival I’m at..
Below are just two styles I may well go for…
For all those too cool for school types, hipster dressing is the epitomy of the east London trend setting scene. I’ll be rocking this look at the Radio One Hackney weekend.
The boho look is one that has been around forever and never seems to become unappealing, it inevitably changes year on year. I like the relaxed look that is easy to go from day to night in, perfect for festivals. This is something I’d wear to Dot to Dot in Nottingham in just a few weeks time!
Today it is National Cleavage Day, now normally I don’t buy into all these weird and wonderful ‘National Days’ but this is one that should be celebrated! Not by drooling men, but by us ladies that are proud of our bangers!
I, myself, have fairly sizeable assets and they haven’t always been something I have entirely wanted sitting on my chest but as I have become older (and wiser) I have learnt to love them. Don’t get me wrong they are sometimes a bit of a pain to shoehorn into certain styles of tops but by god when they are, there’s a cleavage. So, let’s all celebrate boobs! Below are some tops to really showcase those lovely lady lumps… (eurgh I used a Black Eyed Peas lyric, apologies!)
ASOS describe their new Aztec Print trend:
“It started as the cool girl’s fancy dress of choice; now Day of the Dead skulls, along with Aztec prints, distressed denim and a heady trip of neon are mixing it up as spring’s most vibrant look. Motif T-shirts and stacks of friendship bracelets are an easy way into the trend, or keep it fresh and team loud prints on tops and dresses with sporty details or flashes of fluoro.”
Sitting here with a tissue stuffed up each nostril and the world’s wooliest head, this trend sure perks me up. It’s fun, bright and vibrant and takes me away to far warmer (and healthier) climes. Having visited Mexico last Summer, it’s fair to say I developed a soft spot for the printed and woven fabrics that were available everywhere and in many different forms. The colours were the first thing that grabbed my attention and the ancient aztec inspired patterns next.
I like ASOS’ quirky take on the trend with the inclusion of skulls and the splash of neon fluorescents. It’s almost a girly grundge take on the traditional Mexican theme. Now I just need this pesky British weather to make it’s mind up and give me the chance to showcase the look, or keep counting down the days until I can hop on the plane to a sunny Spain in the Summer!!
Flatforms: the shorter girls comfy heel!
Get the height you get from a high heel but with the comfort of wearing a flat. They’re also really versatile and look equally as acceptable in the day as they do glammed up at night. Below are my favs out there now…
Turn your back on the cold dreary weather outside and look forward to a warmer Spring/ Summer. If we all dress like it’s Summer maybe the weather will take note and warm up a little (or a lot!).
With this in mind, there is a lot of pretty pastel shades out there on the high street, so think like ice cream and get all neapolitan…
