Seahorses On The Beach

Jacket: Primark
Sandals: Mango
Sunglasses: Primark
Bag: eBay

It only seemed right that I shot the photos of this dress on the beach!
Sugarhill Boutique always get the balance just perfect when it comes to their dresses and the girly prints, everything is a mixture of fun and quirky yet still very wearable and not too in your face. This dress is a subtle seahorse print with the extra detailing of a cut out heart shape on the chest - how cute?!
The shift style is also really flattering and just so easy to throw on and be ready to go.

I added my leather look jacket from Primark (such a great dupe for the Zara one!) to tie in the blue tones and pastel colours and then my ever faithful studded bag with some chunky buckled sandals for a bit of a contrast.

I might just have to start shooting more outfit photos at the beach... any excuse for an ice cream or fish and chips!

The Little Mermaid Jumpsuit


Couldn't resist entitling this post 'The Little Mermaid Jumpsuit', it was the first thing that popped into my head when I tried it on and it really does make me feel all princess-like. The colour is so stunning and the fit is wonderful... I need more excuses to wear it! I definitely have my outfit for ladies day at the races next month sorted, that's for sure!

Unfortunately I'm not very blessed in the height stakes, so I may need to get this taken up slightly, or wear it with a heel, but I actually like that it's really long... it adds a bit of glamour to the look, which I think I can get away with as long as it's not raining. I think the massive statement necklace compliments it perfectly too, the colours, the style and the size and shape of it is perfect for protecting my dignity!

How would you style this jumpsuit? I need inspiration so I can get more wear out of it!

LW Tan Solution 60 Mousse

I'm such a pale girl, so fake tan is a must for me when I want to get my legs or arms out. I've used Lauren's Way Tan for a good few years now and I'm always impressed by the colour it gives me, so when I heard about the new release; Solution 60 a tan which comes in mousse or liquid formula that fully develops in 60 minutes, I just had to give it a try.
I've used fake tan on and off for years and years now, and I've tried loads of brands so I feel like I can give a really informed opinion on how good or not so good a certain tan is.

Lauren's Way is a brand of beauty products and accessories created by Lauren Goodger, one of the original (and best) TOWIE cast members. It started off as just a fake tan brand and has grown massively over just a couple of years... there's now eyelashes, hair extensions and hair rollers too! Trust me when I say that this is one of the best tanning brands I have ever used, please don't be put off by the celebrity branding.

This tan applies tinted so you can see where you've been with it and where is still left to tan, and when using a tanning mitt it blends perfectly to give an even, streak free finish. It sinks into the skin and dries almost instantly without leaving a horrible 'tan' smell behind (you know the one).

The first time I used this, I actually left the house as soon as I was dry and the tan really does give instant colour, so if waiting for tan to develop is something which annoys you, then this is ideal and even better, it's not a mucky brown colour it looks like a real holiday tan!
You also have the ability to control how dark the colour of the tan develops to. When I wear it for the daytime, I shower after giving the tan an hour to develop which leaves a natural golden tan, and when I want a deeper tan I let it develop for three hours before showering which leaves me still looking natural but very bronzed.

You can buy the Solution 60 Mousse direct from the Lauren's Way website here for only £19.95 and if you're not a fan of tanning mousse you can buy the spray version here.
If you fancy treating yourself you can save 20% by using the discount code LWBLOG99

To see me wearing this tan check out this post where I had left it to develop for an hour and this post where it had almost three hours to develop.

Dark Floral Playsuit

Playsuit: Lavish Alice
Sandals: Primark
Bracelet: Chamilia
Sunglasses: Primark

What better thing is there to do on a boiling hot day than go and pose for some photos in a maze of maize?!
This is what I wore yesterday for a day out near York with Elodie and Robbie, and considering it was probably the sunniest day of the year, I don't think he did too bad with the photos. I love the location too, it was in the middle of a giant maze which kind of made me feel like I was on the set of Honey I Shrunk The Kids!

This playsuit is my favourite addition to my wardrobe this year, it's just gorgeous. I love an excuse to wear monochrome or darker colours in the warmer months and this dark floral print makes it completely acceptable.
It's made of a really thick, high quality scuba style fabric which (luckily for me yesterday) is really breathable, so it's great for days in the sun without you having to worry about getting inappropriate sweat patches (no one likes that) or for a night out.
It's a decent length, and I love the almost 3/4 sleeves and the little peplum panels on the hips which adds a little bit of shape to make it even more flattering.

As I was wearing the playsuit for during the day I wanted to style it quite casually so I opted for really simple accessories; chunky sandals, a simple black bracelet and my Primark shades. I was also carrying my usual Rocco-esque bag. On the way home yesterday, I was already planning where I could wear it to next, maybe a wedding or for drinks with my girls?!

My tan comes from my Lauren's Way Solution 60 mousse... maybe one day I will actually catch the sun for real!
