Upmarket flannels

So as I said in my last post I’m home and it’s back to usual business with my blog!

First of all I was hoping that the weather would be half decent in the UK so I could show off my tan in shorts and a tshirt but no. How wrong was I, the rain hasbeen torrential all morning πŸ˜’. Meaning I’ve had to bring back out some winter pieces.


Plaid flannel shirts are a personal must have in the wardrobe as they seem to always stay in fashion and can feature in any outfit as the main focus piece or simply as an accessory tied around the waist!


Today I have decided to wear my plaid flannel shirt as the centre piece of my outfit with it done up like a shirt instead of worn as a jacket or around the waist. I’ve combined the shirt with a light pair of skinnies and heeled sandals, to contrast and brighten up the darkness of the shirt as after all it is supposed to be summer πŸ˜‚!


I decided to try out the half up half down bun hairstyle as I am a massive fan of half up half down but I rarely incorporate a bun into the style, however with it being such an in hair trend this season I decided it would go perfectly with my look!

Post Glastonbury blues..

Sorry for the lack of posts this week but I’m finally back from Glastonbury and am back to having unlimited electricity and phone charge πŸ˜‚

As promised, I am going to share my Glastonbury experience with you all… It may have taken 13 hours to get in because of the torrential amount of mud due to weeks of rain before the event but it was SO worth every minute of that 13 hour queue.

I truly can’t find a way to put my weekend into words therefore I am just going to share photos with you all…


The atmosphere and the views were just unreal…


But my favourite moment of the weekend was watching Coldplay shut down the festival with their breathtaking performance. It is up there with one of the best things I’ve ever seen and I’m not a massive Coldplay fan but honestly they were incredible… From bringing on a BeeGee to the creativity of the performance, everything was just on point and the perfect way to send off Glastonbury 2016 and you can watch them here.


I am currently sitting on my sofa feeling very depressed about life as I’d do anything to be back in that muddy field! I highly recommend anyone to attend Glastonbury if you ever have the chance to as you will not be disappointed!!

GLASTONBURYYYYYYY

I know I haven’t posted in a few days but I have been a very busy bee over the weekend catching up with friends before I disappear for three weeks and getting ready for the first of my trips over the next 3 weeks which is….. GLASTOOOOO!!


The car is all packed and ready for the three and a half hour journey early in the morning 😁😁😁, just eating my last bowl of fruit before my burger van binge! When I get back on Monday I will make sure I share all my festival styles with you as well as my Glastonbury experience! Hopefully it’s not too much of a washout! 

Zozo

So today I’ve spent the day shopping for fathers day and birthdays with my Mother, whom everyone knows as Zozo. The famous Zozo…. A basic summary of her would be; she always makes me look as pale as a ghost, she constantly copies me, she stalks me and all my friends on social media, she literally has her own abbreviated language but most of all she is nuts and everyone loves her for it.


Since I started my blog she has been so desperate to feature, so I thought today was the perfect opportunity to introduce her to you all… Mainly because I thought her outfit was pretty good today πŸ˜‚.


 Today she is wearing a tan hat with a grey longline vest with leather trimmings paired with ripped skinnies and buckled sandals. Zozo has an obsession with hats she’s got about 10 of those hats in different colours so she pretty much wears them with every outfit.


Today I went for a simple pastel pink vest, alongside my pastel pink slip ons paired with some skinnies to channel my inner casual city chic. Finished off with some Candy K!

Moroccan Vibes

So today has been a partly productive day as I bought a tent for Glasto but my mood has been dampened (quite literally) with another very dull rainy day in the UK just adding to my worry for the weather next week at Glastonbury 😫. 


Therefore I decided to add a bit of spice to my outfit today in order to attempt to cheer up this dismal day. I decided to wear a Moroccan inspired printed crop in order to add spice with this top featuring a tie up front, of which is very fashionable this season. I’ve paired this top with some ripped skinnies and some brown Chelsea boots to provide an effortless sense of style.


I think Ronnie (my cat) must’ve noticed my fury at this dismal weather in June as he decided to join in with my blogging…


However, he wouldn’t fully cooperate so I don’t see him becoming the next feline sensation any time soon πŸ˜‚

ItalianoΒ 

So, Saturday night was indeed another date night and this time I got to decide where. I really fancied pasta so I decided to go to an Italian restaurant on the seafront called Posillipo.  


I’d never been to Posillipo before but many of my friends and family had recommended it in the past and Italian is my favourite food so I thought I’d give it a try…


Everyone’s recommendations were correct because the food was lush. Both the pasta and pizza my boyfriend and I had was delicious and the table service was of a high standard too. Plus the place was fully booked so that’s always a good sign! I would really recommend this restaurant to anyone in South East England.



As for fashion… it was a nice warm summers evening, thus I decided that swinging summer vibes were necessary, therefore I chose to wear a striped midi skirt paired up with a backless pastel top and heeled sandals with a light frosted lip was perfect for the occasion.

Slung-Jacket

So today I’m going out shopping and it’s absolutely freezing outside so there’s no other option but to bring a coat. I know a coat in June, it sounds crazy but it’s literally like 9 degrees and raining in England.


So, I decided to wear an orange jacket in order to attempt to brighten up this gloomy weather. I paired this with an indigo pair of skinnies accessorised with a western style belt, basic white vest and cut out biker boots. Then I glam’d up my look with a pink lip.


My favourite part about this look is the jacket. I absolutely love the ‘slung-jacket’ trend at the moment. It is also very popular with many celebrities and bloggers as it provides a shield from the cold whilst looking very stylish. But the best thing is it can be done with pretty much any jacket!
