Style of the day…

Finally, the sun is here! This week has been gorgeous on the weather front, which makes me very excited to crack out the summer wardrobe! As you can see, I’ve recently had a balayage on my hair – blonder for summer! And I love it. Because I’ve got dark features, the roots match my face, but the softer lighter ends make it so much more summery looking.

I love this playsuit I bought from Urban Outfitters, by Silence + Noise (£39). I bought it a while ago and wore it with tights and boots, but now the sun is shining, it looks great with bear legs! It’s plain, so can easily be glammed up with jewellery to make an impact, but can also be worn casually. The style of the back is slightly drapey and crosses over to show a bit of skin. It’s so versatile, you can literally style it however you fancy.

Also wearing a bag and denim jacket from Topshop and black ankle boots from Primark. Loving denim jackets at the moment!

I’ve braided my hair in a French plait around my face, leading down in to a normal braid – I’m loving experimenting with styles from Pinterest at the moment. My balayage means that you can really see the detail in the styles.

Peace and love and summer style x

Or even wear it through to the evening with a bit of bright lipstick (Rimmel – Kate Moss is my absolutely fave!)

Lets look beautiful and spend a little less…

I would wear Free People clothes (above) all the time if I could. But these amazing clothes come at a price…

So today I’m finding some cheap as chips alternatives that will make you look just as free and beautiful as the models from Free People. All you will be missing is the desert…

This photo from the Free People blog caught my eye, because I absolutely love the blouse that she is wearing… but at $148, one can only dream. My birthday has just gone, so it doesn’t look hopeful.

So, I thought I’d have a little skim of the internet and find out what other less expensive blouses are on offer for people like me who are dreaming of being Free People…

Ellie Boho Print Wrap Front Blouse £18 Boohoo – This boho blouse is very pretty and will look gorgeous with some brown boots (copying the Free People photo above!) Personally, I’d buy it a little larger than my actual size because I think blouses like this look better when they are a bit large and floaty, more dress like… But each to their own! With the money you’d save from buying this item, maybe you could try and get a flight to a desert! – You never know!

Tilly Oversized Contrast Panel Tunic Top £12 Boohoo – This is another favourite at only £12! I love the print on this and the detail. Although short sleeved (and quite different to the picture above) this would look gorgeous at a festival with some boots and shorts.

EMBROIDERED SMOCK BLOUSE BY KATE MOSS FOR TOPSHOP £60 Topshop – OK, so being slightly naughty (but you are paying for the embellishment on this one!) this gorgeous blouse by Kate Moss is such a winner. The embellishment really stands out and will make you sparkle in the sunshine! Great festival item and guess what…. machine washable! What more could you want?!

TASSEL FEATHER PRINT BLOUSE BY KATE MOSS FOR TOPSHOP £75 Topshop – I just had to edit this one in as although the most expensive… I think I am in love. There’s a possibility I even prefer this one to the one on the Free People blog… So well done Kate Moss!

You could even buy all four!

Happy pretty boho blouse shopping 🙂

Keeping up with the crochet…

Keeping up with the crochet...

This is another photo taken from (obviously) my favourite blog/site/online clothes shop – Free People.

I never used to be a massive fan of crochet, but I’ve been seeing it everywhere recently! And when I think about it, I can see why it’s such a great summer trend!

It looks pretty…. you can wear it with everything…. you can where it over swimwear…. you won’t get too hot in it…. the list goes on and on.

I’ve been having a little browse for some nice (and cheapish!) crochet items so here we go:
(I’ve found some BEAUTIES!)

Kiera Crochet Knit Strappy Top £20 (Boohoo)
http://www.boohoo.com/new-in/kiera-crochet-knit-strappy-top/invt/azz31664
Seriously who could tell the difference between this and something from Free People?! It’s soooo prettyyyy, the circular design looks gorgeous and it’s nice and strappy, ready for summer festival days!

Crochet Shorts £24 (Topshop)
http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?searchTerm=crochet&storeId=12556&productId=14842824&urlRequestType=Base&categoryId=&langId=-1&productIdentifier=product&catalogId=33057
How cute are these!? Easy to wear with a simple tee or strap top… my only concern is festival grass stains!

Lucca Couture Crochet Shift Dress £47.59 (NastyGal)
http://www.nastygal.com/product/lucca-couture-crochet-shift-dress
Ok, so a little more pricey… but definitely a favourite! Really pretty detailing and simple to wear, no need to dress it up.

All you need to worry about now girls is the grass stains! – Or you could take note of the photo and buy some colourful crochet!

Peace and Love x

Ahhhhh I love this…. soooo cute. Forgive me if I do some style stealing again…

OK, so the dungarees alone are nearly $300…

But… with a little bit of browsing… I found…

Dungarees (OK, so these aren’t quite as dark, but actually… there are some really cool darker ones from Topshop that are meant for maternity, but bought in a small size should be perfect for a “boyfriend” look, like the photo… but I thought people may think I’m crazy if I linked you guys to some maternity dungarees!) http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?searchTerm=dungarees&storeId=12556&productId=13815964&urlRequestType=Base&categoryId=&langId=-1&productIdentifier=product&catalogId=33057

Top (This in a big size will look really similar – like the cut-out detail): http://www.asos.com/Mango/Mango-Embroidered-Cut-Out-Top/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=3757749&cid=4169&Rf937=2428,4140&Rf-200=5&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=36&sort=-1&clr=White

Hat (Personally I’d want a bigger brim, but…): http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?searchTerm=floppy+hat&storeId=12556&productId=11677746&urlRequestType=Base&categoryId=&langId=-1&productIdentifier=product&catalogId=33057

All that comes to £85.99… and who needs shoes 😉 I’m joking… Boots or flip flops would do fine!

Style stealing off Free People is probably my favourite thing. So gorgeous.
