I Am Wearing : 

Kimono - c/o In Love With Fashion
Jumpsuit - River Island 
Birkenstocks - TK Maxx
Oversized Sunglasses - Asos

Summer has definitely arrive in the UK and I am keeping cool in this cheesecloth jumpsuit and light and airy oriental Kimono  - the perfect combination for a cool clashing outfit!

TOP TIP for those of you who love the print clash look but don't know how to style it - just make sure that both prints have a common colour thread and it will work perfectly! 

Go forth and clash those prints!!

PS I would LOVE to see pics of you in your perfectly clashing outfits!!

Just incase you have been living on another planet for the past week the 2014 World Cup has begun! And we have well and truly got World Cup fever in our house!

 On Saturday night, in preparation for England's first World Cup game, I threw a FishFinger party for my friends!

We had so much fun , unfortunately England did'nt win but my Malibu spiced Funkin cocktails took the edge off of our disappointment!

FishFingers, Football, Funkin cocktails, and Friends - 4 VERY complimentary F's!

Hope you all had a fun weekend too!

Much Love

Don't you just love it when you come across a bit of street art in London that completely compliments your outfit!! 

Jumpsuits are high on my list of summer in the city essentials this year - they are SO easy to wear you don't have to think about anything - jumpsuit, shoes, accessorize and go! TOP TIPS for buying a jumpsuit : choose a light cotton fabric to keep you cool in summer - throw on a sweater to completely change the look -  take your jumpsuit through to AW with a blouse or turtle neck worn underneath!

I must thank the beautiful Debs from Bang On Style for snapping these pics for me!

Sunny summer days in London are some of the best sunny days in the world! 

Happy Weekend lovelies!!

I Love London - there you have it!!

I Am Wearing :

Blue Maxi Dress - c/o Chi Chi
Leather Biker - H&M
Rockstud Heels - c/o Oasap
Headband - Asos
Clutch - Dune

I loooove this dress! I will be wearing this beauty on my holidays this summer, swap the heels for gold sandals and the biker for a shawl and I am good for an evening on the Costa Blanca!

I am so over all of this rain in London and totally ready for a sunny holiday - but first Glastonbury is calling my name - I am SO not ready - I need outfits and a good backpack amongst everything else!!

I have this horrible habit of leaving absolutely everything until the last minute - can someone just manage my life for me - I promise I will do what ever you say!
