I Am Wearing :
Fedora - Zara
Tassel Crochet Cardigan - Primark via Westfield Stratford City
Tie Dye Maxi Dress - c/o Superdry
Suede Bucket Bag - River Island via Westfield Stratford City
Coin Necklace - Bohemian Collective
Bracelets - Primark via Westfield Stratford City
Studded Sandals - New Look
Metallic Tattoos - c/o Flash Tattoos 

LOVEBOX was soooo much fun, the sun was shining, the music was live, the drinks were flowing and I got to spend the day with my Fashion Sept girls, all courtesy of Superdry!

We started our day in the festival with champagne and tattoo applications - two sponges and a paper cup full of water was all we needed to get our Flash Tattoo on! They are super easy to apply and will last up to 3 days - if you look after them - and they look SO cool in the sun, perfect for festivals.

Then we headed into the festival and took some quick outfit snaps then spent the rest of the day chilled near the main stage with cocktails and cupcakes, had a boogie to Annie Mac's set - which was my favourite of the day and headed home just before the last act to avoid the tube madness! 

A perfect day with my girls :-)

I Am Wearing : 

Striped Off Shoulder Top - Zara
Boyfriend Jeans - H&M
Chloe Drew Dupe - Forever 21
Heels - Deichmann
Watch - c/o JORD 
Bracelets & Necklace - Primark

So my rose gold watch obsession continues today with this amazing wooden watch by JORD. Not only does the light wooden strap compliment the beautiful blush pink face of the watch but it also makes my summer tan look great! Win win right? ;-)

Another awesome feature JORD offer is that they will size the watch for you before they send it out, all you have to do is send them your wrist size when you order and they will do the rest! Beats having to take it to your local jewellers for sure!

My off shoulder obsession has also gained momentum this week with this Zara number that I bagged in the sale! I was SO chuffed when I spotted it as I had spent the ENTIRE summer hunting it down - and when I say hunting I mean I had sent out a pic of it to my family and friends so they too could continue the search as far out as Spain! I don't mess around when it comes to finding that perfect piece - and Zara really do know how to tease a girl - there has been many an item I have hunted down in there!!

It's the weekend ladies and for many of us it is also PAYDAY weekend - shop wisely my friends and make sure you check out JORD (they ship out really fast too)!!

Thanks for reading

This is how I feel in this dress!!

I Am Wearing :

Vintage Maxi Dress - c/o Beyond Retro
Fringe Boots - Topshop (old)
Jewellery - Topshop

When Beyond Retro asked me to go down to their Dalston store to find my dream vintage dress, I was both excited and mildly terrified at the same time. I love vintage and I love dresses AND I dream about them all the time, but what if they couldn't make my dreams come true? What if I traveled across London with a tummy full of dress shopping butterflies only to have them turned into vintage moth balls!

Alas all my fretting and mid-summer sweating was all in vain as I entered the fitting room with a basket full of (almost) 27 dresses! I managed to whittle the 27 down to 4 and came home with not 1 but 2 vintage dress dreams! 

The dream you see before you was a mere £20 - that my darlings is quiet possibly the dreamiest part!!

Here is something else you might like to hear :
