Well hello there strangers,  I hope you've all had a good start to the week?!
I've been back to work after a weekend in London, to say I've been rushed off my feet is an understatement... luckily I took these outfit photos last week so that there would be a post to go live today as I'm really not looking my best right now and I'm far too tired to take pictures!

I was challenged by Yumi to put together a Summer outfit using pieces from their SS15 collection as part of their '30 Days Of Summer' campaign in which they are showcasing a different blogger wearing their put together look every day in their style guide.
Yumi is a brand I would associate with ditzy prints, girly dresses and quirky accessories, it caters for a wide range of tastes, styles and ages and is really appealing when you see the pieces in real life. I already own a few printed dresses, so when I was choosing my outfit for this campaign, I wanted to go with something a little different and a bit more.

I'm still loving co-ords, so when I set eyes on the daisy print matching skort and jacket I knew they were the ones for me! On the website they had styled it with the animal print jumper which is something I wouldn't have usually paired with the coords, but I actually love them together, and I think the clashing prints and bright colours really shout out 'Yumi style' and create a fun, summery look together. Teamed with my chunky white sandals, this outfit made the perfect ensemble for shopping and afternoon cocktails with the girls on what turned out to be a really sunny day.
The best thing about all three of these pieces is they're real statement pieces and work just as well individually as they do together... they're all going to be statement pieces in my wardrobe this season.
