Feeling the heat?

I have to say it is HOT in London right now! I love the heat but I am in serous need of a pool or a dip in the sea.

This light denim wide leg jumpsuit from Zara is the perfect way to keep cool in the city, I bought it on my recent trip to Spain and have worn it so much over the past couple of weeks it's just so easy to wear.

Summer trends with Caravelle New York

I Am Wearing :
Wide Leg Jumpsuit - Asos
Pink Face Watch - Caravelle
Cross Body Bag - forever 21
Sunglasses - New Look
Sandals - River Island
Summer is finally here!!!
When Caravelle New York asked if I'd like to style one of their SS15 watches I instantly fell in love with this pink face beauty - I have been wanting a watch with a pink face for ages, I am so giddy about this one I can't tell you how happy I am! I also knew that I had the perfect outfit (newly purchased) just waiting in my wardrobe for a beautiful watch to set it off just right. 
As the theme of this outfit post is "Summer trends with Caravelle New York" I have managed to pull off 3 of this summers biggest trends all in this one outfit (3 for the price of 1 is how I like to roll!)
Off the shoulder tops are a big trend this summer - taken from the 70's they are perfect for shoulder baring without feeling like you have too much skin on show and they dont need adjusting all day long like a strapless top (no nip-slip dangers with an off shoulder!).
The jumpsuit - a trend carried over from last summer - only unlike last years prints and florals this years jumpsuits are a more demure block colour of black or white.
The third and final trend being a big fav of mine this season - the wide leg trouser - they really are the most comfortable and easy to wear trouser of the season.
And that my darlings is what I like to call a smart buy :-)
However the real star of the show has to be my pretty pink faced watch.
Do you like it? 
Would you like one of your very own?
Pop back later in the week for a lovely Caravelle New York watch shaped giveaway!
Hope your weekend was sun filled and happy :-)

Black, White & Pillar Box Red

I Am Wearing : 
Black V-neck Tee - Asos Tall
Striped Full Midi Skirt - New Look
Leather Biker Jacket - Miss Selfridge
Lace Slipons - F&F
Sunglasses - New Look
Necklace - Accessorize

This is my 5th and final look from my 5 days in F&F footwear and it's probably my fav shoot because my little Captain Bob gets to feature along side my monochrome lace slip ons.

He is the cutest little thing and just loves having his photo taken! 

I spotted this adorable New Look skirt on one of the press girls at their AW15 press day - she looked so beautiful in it I literally left the venue and walked straight into the Oxford Street store and bought it. 

This happens all of the time at press days - the press staff are always so well turned out and always reping their own brand that you cant help but leave with wardrobe envy - and a shopping list as long as your arm!

I hope you have enjoyed my F&F footwear features, have a great weekend darlings.

Print & Pattern : Tunic & Trousers

I Am Wearing :

Tunic - H&M
Wide Leg Trousers - H&M
Jewelled Sliders - F&F
Oversized Round Sunglasses - New Look

Day 4 of my 5 days in F&F footwear belongs to these super cute bedazzled sandals - at just £16 they wont break your holiday clothes budget.

This H&M co-ord wide leg trousers and matching tunic is one of my fav summer purchases - worn together for maximum impact or worn separately with a basic tee or jeans - the lightweight fabric and tribal print has every element needed for a great summer outfit.

I hope you love this look as much as I do, so far it seems to have had a bit of a "marmite" reaction - you either love it or you hate it! Which camp are you in? 

(my husband is in the hate it camp ;-) )

I love it!!

Happy Hump Day Friends

Chloe Drew cross-body dupe - Forever 21
Snake Skin Flats - F&F

Day 3 of my 5 days in F&F footwear is aaaalll about these gorg snake skin flats - at just £12 you can't go wrong!

They are a great day to night shoe - made for comfort - you can work all day and party late on into the night in these perfect points!

Snake print will take you through into AW15 too - pop on a pair of flared jeans, a kaftan blouse and a fringed bag and you are ready to take next season by the heels (or flats in this case!).
