summery hair!

It's only just getting to Spring here in the UK, but I'm loving beachy, summery hair at the moment!  This braided look (which I found on Lookbook is amazing, I'm really tempted to try it soon. And I love Sky Ferreira's long beachy waves. I love this look because it's so relaxed and carefree. It's quite easy for anyone to do and will get you in the summer mood. :)

trend report: mustard


mustard by ellesee featuring a polka dot dress
I've seen a lot of mustard yellow in the shops recently, especially Topshop. I've always been a bit wary of this colour and to be honest, I'm not sure why!  Recently, I've fallen in love with it! It gives you a chance to stand out and also to ease into summer colours from the darker colours that are associated with winter. I love the way that you can mix it easily with tobacco, plum and dark green colours for an eye catching look.   I especially love this Topshop dress (far right) with beautiful vintage look embroidery and pleated skirt.

70's summer

I'm loving the 70's look that the high street chains are chanelling for summer. There are wedge sandals bright prints and floaty dresses. I love it! The nudes trend that has been popular for the last few seasons remains, but for summer, it's time to fall back in love with beautiful, virbrant prints. Prints are really versatile and can be dressed up or down easily. Hang onto last year's denim jacket to pair with floral smock dresses and wedge sandals. Add a floppy hat and sunglasses and you have a perfect look for summer 2011. It is still REALLY cold here, but I cannot wait for summer fashion!

marina and the diamonds

lookbook today

It's still frrrrreezing cold here so I have many layers on! I bought these lace up ankle boots from Jones the Bootmaker and I love them! They have a small heel so add height without being uncomfortable. My duffel coat is from Monsoon Fusion and my hat is from H&M. I'm looking forward to being able to wear more spring/summer outfits as the weather improves.

Another music related post today about a band called Warpaint. I found them randomly on youtube and fell in love! Their music is classed as  Melodramatic Popular Song / Psychedelic which is quite a good way to describe it I think. It's quite different to anything I've heard before and I definitely recommend giving them a listen! Their first song, Undertow has been stuck in my head!

The Like

I love this band! Their songs are really catchy, but most of all I LOVE their style. They have a great sixties/mod look


spring/summer! :)

It's been a long time since the shops have been filled with bright colours and pretty florals. Winter 2010/11 seems to have gone on for so long and it's a relief to see dresses and sandals in the place of chunky knitwear and boots. The high street chains are bringing in lots of new and fresh designs for the new season, even though the temperature is not quite into double degrees yet!  My favourite picks for the Spring/Summer season are:
H&M Heeled Sandals, £29.99. They come in tan, coral and green. I think the tan pair are the most versatile and will be perfect to pair with summer dresses. The chunky platform heel adds height, but doesn't mean that the shoes can't be worn in the daytime. I also love this scenic print dress from New Look. It has a beautiful vintage look and would look great with light denim.
