#VeryHoliday Trend Forecast

Monday, 22 May 2017

Don’t you just love planning a summer getaway? :) Whether it be a short, city break or a long-haul exotic vacation; any ‘out of office’ holidays are a perfect excuse to switch off from the hustle and bustle of the daily grind. Thanks to Very’s #VeryHoliday blogger event I found an abundance of outfit inspo for my upcoming travels this summer!

Here are a few snippets of their incredible Spring & Summer Collection.


First of all let’s talk about patterns & prints. There was an array of bright patterns on display, from off the shoulder dresses to tropicana vibes at the swimwear collection. 
From your classic palm-print bikinis to a new take on a monochromatic swimsuit - there’s definitely a great selection for all ages. You an view the full holiday collection here.

I adored this print, the subtle watercolour flowers scream spring & summer to me! Would be so great for pool parties amongst a unicorn floaty!

COOL & Quirky Footwear 

I was really impressed to see that the summer sandal had appeared to have a whole new style re-invention. From what I noticed, pom poms and tassels are here to stay ladies, but can we please just talk about these beauties from Kurt Geiger, which literally stole my heart - the little daisies and crochet details are way too perfect. I can imagine these as a perfect date-night accompaniment for your City breaks, paired with some culottes and a loose off-the-bell-sleeve white top - perfection!

HOT Accessories 

Summer cannot be complete without some eye-catching accessories, I adored the denim-choker-set which I thought would go perfect with the above sunglasses for the Ibiza opening parties!
The hero piece of this event has to be the fabulous ‘Out Of Office’ straw-hat. It is not only very practical (for the summer sun), it can also literally go with any summer outfit and holiday occasion. I can envision sporting it at a wine-tasting event at the vineyards in the south of France and/or wearing it backpacking in Bali - the chicest accessory to have this summer!

Hope you enjoyed this holiday post, cuties! Do let me know where you’re off to this summer & which item caught your eye? :)

Rufflemania | The Missguided Ruffle Dress

Friday, 21 April 2017

If there’s one trend that I am heavily invested in - it has to be the Ruffles. Not only am I still on the pink hype, I’m also really into anything ruffle-related. As soon as I spotted this on ASOS I knew it had to be mine! I love the whole slouchy, feminine feel the dress gives; also it was on offer at 20% off so I couldn’t really pass up the opportunity! Who else gets way too happy when they see something they love suddenly on sale? I certainly do! #NoShame

Originally I planned to style this with my new grey Adidas Iniki trainers that my boyfriend kindly gifted to me, however the weather was a little bit too cold for me to pair it together, so I decided to pair it with my trusted black, over the knee, boots from EGO, instead. It definitely made my whole outfit look a lot more dressy for our day-date, but hey! It’s always nice to dress up for your significant other whether it be unintentionally; especially when you've been together nearly 7 years haha. Needless to say Jean-Michael approved 🙂.

I’ve been getting really into K-Pop recently again #NoShame and the obsession with Korean fashion is real. I feel like I've seen a lot of oversized dresses and ruffles on popular K-fashion sites in particular Stylenanda - which is another influence that helped spur my love of this dress. Of course my favourite k-pop idols are still Big Bang - there’s just something about their music and aesthetic that makes me so hyped! If you don't know what K-Pop is it essentially means Korean Pop, if you don’t know what i’m talking about honestly stop what you’re doing right now and go watch this video - Click Here - ! You can thank me later 😉

What are your thoughts on the Ruffles trend?

Pssst... Who is your favourite Big Bang member? 😉
