May – my month! I have a feeling it’s going to be a good one this year… :)
Hope you guys have had a good week. Apologies for the radio silence, it’s been a hectic one for me. I handed in one of my final assessments for uni on Tuesday. Gosh, I can’t wait till I finish my course in September!
For now though, I’m just happy it’s Friday. The sun making more and more frequent appearances is reminding me that there is always light at the end of the tunnel. Hoping to compliment that light, I’m wearing a distinctively effeminate summer dress today. I hope you all enjoy your weekend. My fun will be starting at Janelle Monae’s London gig tonight. Is excited a word?

Wouldn’t mind wearing this little combo today. The heels on these court shoes are unbelievably hot.

Floral prints are one of those rare prints that transcends all four seasons. We often see winter florals appear in shades of burgandy, grey, purple and so forth during the A/W season. Likewise brighter, more vibrant floral designs pop up during and throughout the S/S season. This dress is a funny one though. I bought it at Christmas but don’t you think however that it’s better suited to the S/S season? I’m loving the way it looks in the sun!
And, bonus, it’s pretty easy to dress up and down too! For a more casual look I have previously worn this dress with a pair of classic brown brogues and cute ankles socks. Today however, I’m emulating a feminine and more youthful look by sporting nude heels and a casual denim crop jacket.
The dress’s lightweight material means that I’m going to have to be a tad conscious of the wind blowing. We don’t want a boo-boo now, do we?!
This is a favourite neck piece of mine – isn’t it stunning? It reminds me a little of a vintage stamp. The gold / brown themes makes it an unusual yet perfect piece for this dress.

Year 2013 will be THE year of wedding for me, all of my best friends have ‘put the ring on it’ which leaves me with a lot of shopping to do. With a few ideas of appropriate colours to compliments those brides, I have started scanning boutiques. This intricate and beautifully crafted dress from Reiss ticks all of the boxes. Flirty nude inserts, red flower embroidery and a flared fit is perfect, whether to look good in photographs or to take it over to the dance floor. I cant wait to pop over to the store and try it on!
