A time to accentuate our tans and make the most of the end of summer.......WHITE-OUT!
Whilst my sister chose minimal, and simplicity with a cute, chic, loose fit dress, I went monochromatic. Blocked patterns or embroidery in black and white create a timeless, classic look and will work well alongside existing pieces in your wardrobe. In contrast to the rich detailing skirt, I chose a basic white shirt, white flats and a white flower headband.
Crisp all-white was highlighted across the runways this SS14 whether it was a tailored or casual athletic look. Not sure on all white?! Then mix it up through different use of textiles; including leathers, silk, crochet or denim.

Summer 2014 over?!
Sadly over the last week it really has felt like summer has ended, but if you are like me you will still want to make the most of your summer wardrobe.
From your super skinny to your boyfriend jeans they remain by far the world's top-selling item of clothing. I am real fan of pretty pastels and vibrant colours. And who doesn't want to add to their jean collection?!
From a basic tee, leather jacket and pumps, to a blouse, tailored blazer and heels, coloured jeans have the ability to fit into anyone's wardrobe.
With my sister the same size as me, we have the luxury of swapping clothes! Check out some of our favourite coloured jeans........

Shopping Sunday! A trip to Bluewater for some birthday presents with my sister and maybe some treats for ourselves?!
Easy, comfortable, trendy pieces I always think are key when shopping.....especially if you might be in and out of the changing rooms!
Continuing this summer's hottest shade, I opted for some soft bright yellow trousers with a contrasting black cami and accessories. For me it is always about highlighting one item of your outfit and finishing off the look with other subtle pieces or accessories. My new Fossil Erin Haircalf bag, purse and bracelet made the perfect finishing touch!
Add a pair of thin strap heels/sandals and you are all set to light up the town!
Flat Sandals: Tropéziennes
It has been hottin' up here in Kent this week so I took full advantage.......a trip to the seaside/beach!! #fishandchips!!
Pinterest inspired I wore my loose open-back heart print cami and soft cream leather shorts. On hot days all you want is comfy, loose, but stylish pieces.......for me its shorts most of the time! Added with some subtle but matching Michael Kors accessories; earrings, dog tag necklace, watch and rings.
Hair by Holly
My hair today was definitely being put up.....I went for the slight 90's half-up, half-down knot. With thick hair its always good to put your hair totally up or half up off you neck to cool you down.

Strawberries and cream, Pimms, "all whites" and my favourite.....Rafael Nadal!! #lovewimbledon.
It was an early start in the car but we all couldn't wait to see our favs....mine being Rafa Nadal! A long day and lots of walking around the grounds I opted for a loose, tennis style pleat dress from Zara and my new Tropéziennes sandals. I loved the colour of this dress......orange, another one of Spring/Summer's 2014 shades that hit the runway. I always think its a warm, vibrant and happy colour..........perfect against the green grass tennis courts.
