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 :-)

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!).

Fringe Loafers

I Am Wearing :

Sleeveless Blazer - River Island
Cricket Jumper - OASAP
Black Culottes - ASOS
Sunglasses - New Look
Fringe Loafers - F&F

 Day 2 of my 5 days in F&F shoes feature and I have opted for these cute fringe loafers - now down to just £10 these nude shoes will go with every colour in your wardrobe.

I love wearing culottes - they have the floaty freedom of a skirt without the worry of a "knicker flash" when you are running about town or sitting cross-legged on your chair at work! 

The sleeveless blazer is a big hit this season and a great way to keep warm and stay cool at the same time, something every girl in the UK struggles to do in the ever changing Great British Summer weather.

Happy Friyay darlings, I hope the weekend brings you lots of sunshine and happiness

I Am Wearing :

Floppy Hat - Primark
Off Shoulder Lace Top - Primark
Wide Leg Striped Trousers - H&M
Pineapple Bag - H&M
Oversized Sunglasses - New Look
Lilac Flats - F&F

This is the first of my 5 days in F&F shoes feature - staring it off with these lilac flats - so pretty and so comfy! At a mere £12 these pastel points are a real bargain - and I know how much you girls like a bargain!!

I decided to pair them with this seasons must have wide leg palazzo pants, but they would work just as well with a floral dress for a summer party or turned up skinny jeans, a white t-shirt and a blazer for drinks with friends. Got to love a versatile summer ready shoe that you can wear time and time again.

Stay tuned for 4 more days in F&F footwear!
