Miss Selfridge Summer Wishlist

I popped into Miss Selfridge yesterday and no surprises that I saw far too many beautiful things. I love all the colours in there and I would go as far as saying that it is probably my fave store on the high street!

I decided to do a post on my fave pieces:

WOVEN FLOPPY HAT Price: £16.00

I think I will go and buy the dress next week, funds depending, as I think it would be great for the beach (I go to Majorca next weekend woop!). The floppy hat is going be a summer essential for me, especially after these last few days as I have had a killer headache because of the sun so I have learnt my lesson well! The coral wedges are such a dream, they would literally transform ANY outfit, plus they have a nice dashing of glitter!

Club TropARKana!

Ark is one of my favourite stores at the minute, whenever I go in there I find quirky and cute pieces that become wardrobe staples! They stock most of my fave brands such as Motel and Glamorous but also their equally fantastic range Hearts and Bows!

I went in the other week and purchased the hearts and bows skirt in purple and a Influence bralete. I love the skirt because it's a beautiful colour and goes with almost anything, recently I've been wearing it with graphic tees and overstated jewellery.

The bralete was only £6.50 so a bargain, and is perfect for this tropical weather we are having!! I bought the outfit for my holiday in June but I'm happy I've been able to wear it in England!

This season the Tropicana theme has been my favourite trend, nothing says summer like bright colours and bold patterns!

I was mega excited when Ark announced on their Facebook that they were running a competition to win £200 to spend in store, all you need to do is upload your outfit to their Facebook pages (competitions ends 1st of June so get your entires in over the next few days!!)

Following on from the theme of the outfit I kitted my back garden out to resemble a club Tropicana resort - beach ball and everything! And after a few hours playing arts and crafts in the sun my very own photoshoot set was ready!

My boyfriend was not very happy that I dragged him out of the sun to play "photoshoot" but he took some greats pics!

Below is the picture I submitted - what do you think?

Wedding Bells!

I was invited to my Boyfriend's Sisters wedding in Tuscany, Italy (how exciting!) and spent months trying to find what to wear and anticipating the big day, I think I may have been more excited than the bride! I have never been to a wedding before and attending my first one in Italy really has set the bar!

The whole day was beautiful and I have decided I am going to divert from my original carear path and become a full time wedding crasher!

I had several dresses to choose from but kept thinking about a dress I saw in Topshop last summer that would have been perfect, I tried looking on ebay and shopping round for something similar months before the day but to no avail! Luckily, 10 days before the wedding I spotted it on ebay in my size and won the bid, woohoo!

I love the colours and the light floaty material, perfect for such a warm climate. I wore it with a black beaded clutch from New Look and my Sam Edelman heels.

Below are a few more pictures of the wedding, how beautiful does the bride look?! Her dress was a Jenny Packham and she looked amazing! The food was top notch and the drinks were flowing perfectly but I somehow managed to keep my cool and not go crazy, it was a family event after all! Don't think my trademark rap battle would have gone down quite as well in this setting!

Yesterday I wore...

So yesterday was the Manchester City Parade and here's what I wore (along with a huge bosnian flag!) excuse the dodgy photo, was taken on iPad!

The skirt and tee are from h&m and the blazers from New Look. The shoes are stylist pick.

I had made a bad outfit choice as the heavens opened and I was drenched, luckily my Bosnia flag was there to keep me warm!

Festival Fever

Festival season is officially upon us... woohoo! However, this is the first year I won't be attending one! Last year I went to V fest, the year before I went to Rock Werchter in Belgium and before  that was Leeds Fest 3 years on the trot! But that doesn't stop me getting excited as we all know the best part of the festivals is spying on what other people are wearing and pre-planning your outfits!

I've created my festival look from ASOS Fashion Finder. Firstly I'm loving the hat, I think it will be the must have of the summer season. Secondly, the tassle tee is amazing, very rock chick and will look great with skinnies or like below for maximum impact with a bright maxi! To see a full list of the products click here:

I love the fashion finder, a great way to expand the range of services that ASOS offers, from a marketing perspective they really have thought outside the box! If you have a ASOS account sign up and get creating various looks, what's more ASOS regularly runs competitions so a great way to pass the time!

I'd love to see your outfits so feel free to comment with a link to your page!
