The one trend I am obsessing over at the moment – shirring. I hadn’t even heard of the word a week ago. I have a few pieces with the detailing and have always loved it and suddenly kept seeing it across bikinis and dresses and across the tops of trousers and skirts. Its so delicate and feminine with a real youthful edge that just takes me back to childhood clothes.

I have pulled together an edit of some of my favourite pieces on the highstreet now… I’ve just ordered the rose ruffled skirt and the white beach dress ready for our family holiday. Hope you enjoy…x

And thank you for reading…

After my little insta-poll the Zara edit definitely had the most unanimous ‘yes’. This was a dangerous exercise for me – I quite literally want to put each and every piece I have chosen into that virtual basket. So without further ado – here is my ‘if money were no object and I had a bigger wardrobe space’ edit of Zara right now. I have popped the links below each image for you. Enjoy.

And please let me know if there’s anything else specific you’d love for me to write about/edit in the comments below.

Thank you so much for reading…

The little black dress – always the go-to outfit for those evenings you just don’t know what to wear and guaranteed to make you feel good about yourself. We all have one (I think..?) and the little black one-piece can do the same. A classic swimsuit that looks chic, simple and is universally flattering. No thought needed, just throw on with any shoes, any towel, any accessories. Everything goes with black. The simplicity of it gives it the nonchalant vibes.

I’ve linked some great budget one-pieces from just £15 below the inspo shots here… enjoy and thank you for reading.

The fruit of Summer 2018 – got to be the lemon. They’ve been seen splashed across street style sites and Instagram… on bags, dresses, jeans even hair scrunchies. And the colour – looking to be this Summers unsuspecting hero.

The little lemon dress. Ok – some of these are across the yellow spectrum but a little Summer dress in a sunshine hue is the perfect way to wear the trend. I am not sure its possible to wear to yellow and not feel in a summer state of mind. I’ve included a little lemon bikini below too – super cute for holidays! As well as my usual plethora of style inspo… enjoy…

Shopping time….

I am all for clothes working harder for you – one piece, many ways to wear it. And the maxi dress is the perfect piece to do just that. Wear day and night, casual and smart. Make it a dress, or make it a skirt by adding a t-shirt or jumper over the top. It can have a gazillion identities… and it works across seasons. But the way I always love to wear it – with trainers.

The super casual white pump – be it Vans, Superga, Converse… I love the effect a simple pair of white trainers has on what might otherwise be quite a glam maxi dress. Athletic brand trainer styles give a really cool sporty edge to a look – Nike, Adidas, the old skool styles give the dress just the right amount of  90’s grunge uni student to make it cool.

I’ve linked my edit of the best highstreet maxi dresses and the perfect trainers to pair them with below my inspo shots.

Enjoy…
