July Challenge of the Month – Look 5

Bohemian Hippie Summer Look by Clothes Clothes Clothes! Challenge of the Month

After finding this amazing wood necklace, I chose to go for a bohemian hippie summer look using the denim floral print bow shorts. The bag is also a very strong piece that you could use again and again, for many different looks. The top is yellow to celebrate summer, but anything khaki, cream or light red would work too.

July Challenge of the Month – Look 4

Lady Who Lunches Dressy Day Look by Clothes, Clothes, Clothes! Challenge of the Month

For the fourth look of our Challenge of the Month, I decided to focus on the khaki herringbone tie shorts– I love  the utility trend and how easy to put a comfortable, casual outfit together with them.

However, I also like to break down the (relative) strictness and masculinity of utility pieces by combining them with very feminine touches. A favourite trick of mine is to pair a khaki pair of shorts or cargo pants with a soft pink top, frilly if possible – like the silk pink wrap top by Coast I featured a few days ago. A few chosen accessories complement the look to create a dressy day outfit, perfect for a lunch with the girls and a shopping session.

July Challenge of the Month – Look 3

Cute Feminine Casual Summer Look by Clothes, Clothes, Clothes! Challenge of the Month

There is a lot going on with this pair of shorts – big pockets, turned up hems, stripes, and a big bow! – so I chose to go for simple pieces to compliment it. There was also the issue of it being described as Mint Ticking Bow Stripe Shorts on the Miss Selfridge website – surely “mint” means green, but they look pretty grey to me! So just to be on the safe side, I chose a colour palette that would flatter either colour.

I started by adding a simple white vest but to keep things interesting, chose one with some subtle embellishment – the macrame detailing teamed with the braided straps of the gladiator sandals help create a bit of a relaxed bohemian feel, and so I decided to push it a little further by adding accessories that clearly take their inspiration from India. The result is a cute, feminine, casual summer look that will look great against a tan.

Get It Before It’s Gone!

Bright Ikat Print Silk Maxi Dress by Warehouse

The first time I saw this Ikat Print Silk Maxi Dress, I thought it was absolutely stunning. This summer dress is now sold out from Warehouse‘s website, but ASOS apparently still has  a limited number available in sizes 10 to 14, so you’d better hurry up if you want it!

PS: If the only thing stopping you from getting this dress is the lack of a good bra, make sure to check out my post on the best strapless bra on the market.

Cute Clutch

Vintage Floral Print Clutch by TopshopHow adorable is the print on this clutch? Would work best teamed with a simple silhouette, such as jeans, a white vest and a black jacket.  To take it one step further, add the following multistrand pearl bracelet and cute pastel pink shoes.

Lust Have! Flower Maxi Dress by Future Classics

Flower Maxi Dress by Future Classics

Words cannot express how much I LOVE this dress – it is absolute perfection. The print is absolutely gorgeous and reminds me of some of my favourite paintings, and I love every single detail about the cut. Unfortunately, at a whopping £795 it is really not in my budget. If by some miracle you are in possession of that magic amount and have also fallen in love with this gorgeous flower print maxi dress by Future Classics, you can find it at ASOS.

Ebay Find – Sexy Red Shoes

New Look Patent Red Bow Court ShoesASOS Deep Red Strappy Platform Heeled Sandals

I was browsing ebay when I came across these sexy patent shoes and thought they’d be the perfect follow-up to my nautical post from yesterday—these would work well for the pin-up version of the nautical look as well as make a great addition to your wardrobe. Team with a pair of white or navy shorts and a stripey top and you’re good to go. If possible, find a way to recall the red of the shoes in the rest of your outfit—lipstick, detailing or brooch, for example.

I have to admit I am not very familiar with buying clothes on ebay, I’ve only ever bought books and DVDs from it.  I am  however quite interested in the idea of buying designer pieces at a cheaper price, but I’m not sure how safe it is—I don’t really want to end up with a cheap copy.

In this case however, the red pumps with bows are from New Look and the maroon platform heels are from ASOS, so I don’t think there is any risk of being disappointed. There are no bids on either of them as I’m writing this and the price starts at £1.50. Good luck. ;)

Personal Favourites: Nautical But Nice

Key Summer Trend: Nautical Clothes and Accessories
I absolutely love, love, love a bit of nautical inspiration for the summer. It’s fun, fresh and flirty. Plus, it never goes out of style. Go for blue (preferably navy) and white stripes, Navy-inspired cuts and mix with a touch of red and anchor-shaped jewellery.

A modern take on the theme makes for an easy, fuss-free day-look, or you can channel your inner pin-up with retro-influenced pieces. If you go for the latter, try to stick to copper or gold-coloured accessories rather than silver.

Asymmetrical Nautical Print Silk Dress by Oasis £55.

Nautical Triangle Bikini Top and String Brief by Accessorize £18 and £14.

Vintage-style Anchor Necklace by ASOS £5.

White Bow, Red Canvas Ballerinas by Accessorize £20.
