Reiss are working really hard to part me with my hard earned cash at the moment. Every time I peek at their site, they’ve yet another little irrisistible gem calling out to me. Everything looks like it would just slot perfectly into my Spring Summer wardrobe. From their luxe basics tees to the super fluid elegant blazers. The punchy coloured dresses to perfect heels and flats. Arggggh – its like retail torture!
If I had the cash to splash – these beauties would definitely be on my hit list:
From top left: Alicia Pumps £129; Orsa Tank Top in Sherbert £69; Biarritz Wedges £149; Danota Dress in Chartreuse £179; Manu Jacket £225; Karina Dress in Jade Green £169
And if thats not enough to tempt you with – take a peek at their campaign video to whet your appetite:
Whistles is just one of those stores I could go into and buy pretty much everything in sight. They’ve had some really beautiful yellow, electric blue and orange shades in store recently.
From my pick of their current collection I’ve selected a delicate nude broderie embroidered dress, some adorable animal print skinnies (I want them!), a classic breton dress with V back detailing – and my favourite – the Wild Flower dress which totally evokes thoughts of summer and picnics – its my favourite print around at the moment.
I know this has been out for quite some time now, but as I’ve been using it for the past month or so, I thought I’d do a mini review for those who haven’t heard of it before.
I’m still using the Dr Hauschka range of products (see my rave reviews from last year!), however they are not particularly cheap, and the cleanser seems to just disappear really quickly. So I have been on the lookout for a really basic natural cleanser to use as a precleanse - to help make my Hauschka products last that bit longer. Enter this lovely product.
It uses natural plant extracts including Sweet Maple and Bilberry – which contain natural AHAs to brighten and give a thorough, but gentle, cleanse. It even removes my mascara with a quick little sweep over. It’s a good sized bottle for the £4 price, with a pump dispenser. It feels lovely and creamy and has a very subtle scent. Used just before my Hauschka routine – its a really effective (and bargainous!) product that I’m very pleased with.
These wedge shoes from Michael, Michael Kors are perfection. A great spring and summer wardrobe staple, they are gorgeous! An investment well worth the ££’s
I’ve been splurging a little recently on nail colours. While my favourite brands are usually Dior and Chanel – there have been some great shades from other cheaper brands. Its a quick and easy way to update your look without breaking the bank.
I picked up these two colours from the L’Oreal Colour Riche range: 201 Rose Paradise and 210 Shocking Pink. I love the coverage this range gives, and it leaves a beautiful glossy finish too.
I’m always on the search for the perfect nude shade – and shade 201 Rose Paradise delivers just what I am after. For me, the perfect nude must give a glossy sheen, not too pink – but not too natural either so that it looks chic and polished. Two coats and it looks great.
Shade 210 Shocking Pink looks fab on my toes (my 4 year old daughter loved it!) A deep fushia pink it actually only needed one coat too… I love this colour!
And with the colours only costing £4.99 each – I’m fast becoming a convert to these cheaper versions that also deliver the quality and colour of the more expensive brands.
This classic shirtdress is given a little twist with this gorgeous Flamingo print by Vero Moda from Fashion Union. A great little summer dress in beautiful cream and pink shades. In addition these adorable little pumps (missoni inspired anyone?) at bargain prices!
Todays outfit was a little smarter than I usually go for – just because I was due out at a fashion event (and in a hurry hence the self taken picture!)
I’m wearing my lovely new blazer from New Look - a total bargain at just £24.99. I really love the cute tiny elephant print, the lightweight drapey feel to the jacket, and the lovely ruched sleeve detailing. I paired it with my Paige jeans, H&M sandals, a little navy vest top from Boden and finally a pendant from Urban Outfitters. Easy peasy way to do a smart yet casual look.
I really love these gorgeous pumps from Jaeger. A sophisticated looking flat shoe – with interesting crimped detailing and a on-trend metallic toecap. It’ll look fab with smart or casual outfits and adds interest to an otherwise plain look. Adore!
Today was a relaxed lunch with my sister and parents (celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary!) and I felt like putting on a bright and colourful outfit reflecting my mood for the day! I just love this top from Cos – and the electric blue colour bounces off the bright Wallis jeans perfectly. And I finally got my first sandal outing of the year with these subtle animal print pair from New Look at just £24.99.
