WEDDING


Last Saturday I went to my friends wedding! I wore a dress from Asos that I absolutely adore and always feel so pretty and shoes from Pretty Little Thing. I am obsessed with these shoes they ooze sexiness and are so comfy I practically danced the whole night without experience swollen feet drama!



I have known the groom, Ibrahim, since uni and it was so cute to watch him get married to his beautiful wife, Hodan, she looked absolutely incredible the whole day and her dress was unbelievably gorgeous, you should have seen the train!


After the ceremony it was finally time to eat! The food did not disappoint and I was happy to go back up for seconds. #dontjudgeme #itwasalongdayofspeechesandphototakenbeforeanyfoodpassedmylips #onecannotsurviveonfingerfoodalone lol. It was also really great to spend the day with my friend Yemi, we not only went to uni together but prior to that worked together for a retail clothing shop called Mexx, we've known each other a long time but dont always get a chance to check in so it was great to catch up 

It really was a beautiful wedding and I feel blessed to have witnessed Ibrahim & Hodan's special day. Congratulations! -

THE ULTIMATE CO-ORD


- SHOP THE LOOK -
H&M Co-ord Sold Out! / H&M Heeled Sandals Similar / Lamoda Sunglasses

Pyjama style co-ords have been a leading trend this year, if athleisure wasn't comfy enough the fashion world have made it acceptable to wear your PJ's to work. Its only natural I try the trend in the most dramatic print I have ever seen.

My key to rocking this trend?
1. A chic pair of sandals
2. Simple makeup with a dash of red lips
3. Huge hoops and stunning reflective glasses

If this co-ord is too wild for you do not despair the trend can still work for you by wearing one piece at a time - wear the top with your everyday jeans and the trousers with a plain tee or classic white shirt.

This co-ord is fire! I'm seriously impressed with the quality, it looks so much more expensive than it is, both H&M items are £24.99, and in real life the material really feels and looks like silk, its just gorgeous!

Step outside your comfort zone and give this trend a go! Happy Sunday!

HAWES & CURTIS : 1 SHIRT 3 WAYS

Do I need to reintroduce myself or do you guys remember me lol?

Today's post is in collaboration with British clothing company Hawes & Curtis who sent me their cotton satin white shirt from their Pink Label womenswear range. Some trends are not for everyone but the classic white shirt is an essential staple everyone needs; and wether you choose to wear it to the office, night out or on your lazy days, the versatility of a white shirt is endless.

Below, I have put together 3 ways to wear this gorgeous frilled front button down. Three. Different. Looks! Oh I spoil you dont I...

1.

CLASSIC COMBO

There's little that can go wrong by the combo "denim jeans x white shirt" and this simple look is ideal for the weekend/casual days. Take the combo to new level with a sleeveless leather biker jacket and keep it chic in a pair of heels, or a pair of trainers, flat sandals or brogues.


2.

LAYER PLAYER

Step up your slip game by layering your sexy black dress over your button down just enough for the frills to peak out. Complete the look with a pair of lace up espadrilles and hopefully for the rest of the summer we have left it will be blue skies and sunshine so you'll need a pair of sunglasses.


3.

ADD A SKIRT

Tuck a crisp white shirt into a high waist button down skirt. Undo the skirt buttons to add a little movement to the skirt and draw the focus to your head-turning boots. I love this look it deserves a night out!

Look 1, 2 or 3? Which one was your favourite?

It feels good to be back blogging...I missed you guys (I hope you missed me too...!!!)
