Spring/Summer Outfits for the City

Hello Everyone!

I am currently in Zambia: my home. It is supposedly winter here but in fact, it is often thirty degrees during the day (perks of living in Africa). Similarly, England, my second home, is also experiencing fabulous weather, so therefore readers in both the northern and southern hemisphere can enjoy these outfits which all deviate from spring/summer collections.

It is important to note that these outfits are from what I call ‘a city series’ – essentially this means that these outfits are most fitting to be worn in towns/cities (restaurants, cafes, shopping, events etc). In addition to the ‘city series’ later this summer I will compile a post with outfits that are fitting to atypical summer vacation spots such as beaches, safaris and more rural destinations.

ENJOY!

The 5 Gingham Dresses You Need Right Now!

Hello Everyone,

I hope all my readers in the northern hemisphere are enjoying the blooming roses, the wonderful wisteria and the longer days. I know that I certainly am.

The spring collections are traditionally characterised by floral prints and upcoming summer dresses. This year, however, designers have something new in store for us: Gingham! When most people think about gingham they think about the print that is only seen on pieces of school uniform – (cue the nostalgia). If you think like me, then you also think of gingham as the material that (not-so-haute) cafes use as tablecloths. Neither of these thoughts are particularly flattering.

My Mother’s Secret Recipe – Mother’s Day

Hello Everyone,

It is that time of year that we take a moment to appreciate all the amazing things that our mothers do for us. When Mother’s Day is put into context, it seems rather bizarre that mothers are celebrated only once a year – especially since mothers do so much for us and the family.

Mothers are special. They are special because they are one of the few people in the world that genuinely want the best for you and will tell you the truth regardless of how much it hurts. As you get older, you also realise that your mother is your best friend – the one person you can share everything with. They are also special as they are the most selfless, always putting their family first. Ensuring that their children are fed before their themselves.

What I Wore: Milan

Hello Everyone!

If you are like me, a tired and rundown university student, I am sure you are looking forward to the upcoming holidays.

A few weeks ago after handing in numerous essays I was simply too tired and rundown to wait for the upcoming holidays; so, I decided to take a weekend trip to Milan. (Note: off-peak trips to European destinations like Milan can be very cheap, highly recommend taking a holiday during a not-so-typical holiday time to bag some great deals)
