How I’m styling the tea dress trend

Two things that I’ve been loving recently: the whole 10 series of Friends now being on Netflix and wearing tea dresses layered over roll necks. But seriously, who else has totally binged watched Friends this month? Life changing.

This cute dress trend caught my eye a few months ago when it sprung up but I honestly couldn’t find any that weren’t too short or too low-cut for my preference in the summer and autumn months when they were most prominent. I just don’t have the confidence to be all out when I’m not on holiday or in beach wear! I always find that I think I can’t wear a specific trend or style until I find my way of styling it up or the right piece.

4 Steps To Perfect Bathroom Decor

The bathroom is definitely one of the most used rooms in any home, and it has a huge influence on our daily activities. However, it’s also a room that tends to get ignored as we can often turn our attention to the living room or bedrooms. In reality, though, this part of the home should be updated every few years at least. So if your bathroom has gone a long time without receiving the affection it deserves, now’s the time to make a change!

Wavy Long Bob Hair Tutorial

I get a few questions about how I style my hair occasionally so I thought it’d be fun to do a quick how to post about how I do it and what I use! This ends up looking like my photo in the top right, just if you haven’t seen it.

When I wash it, I always use Wella System Professional Luxe Oil on the ends to keep them happy and then roughly blow dry, sometimes I use a salt spray too but I’m never sure if I really see the benefits of it once I’ve finished my hair. If anyone has any texturising or salt spray recommendations I’d love to hear them please!

Louche Sweatshirt with John Lewis

Today I’m featuring this stunning blue sweatshirt from Louche at John Lewis. Louche is a new brand that’s being stocked in John Lewis and they’ve got some really lovely pieces, some vintage style dresses and shirts that are really beautiful. The colour really drew me to this piece, it’s stunning and the fact that I thought it would be really versatile. In this post I’ve styled it on a casual Sunday in town but I think I’d definitely smarten it up and wear it with some trousers and heels too. I think it’d also look fab with a white shirt underneath. It also comes in white which would look fab on really tanned skin but it would wash me out! The blue trend is really in, check out this article from Vogue for a bit more inspiration.

The Fashion Bloodhound Showcase

Image

On Wednesday night the lovely Leyla & I went to the Fashion Bloodhound Showcase at the Francis Hotel in Bath on behalf of The Image Consulting Company.  I felt like I was walking into Carrie Bradshaw’s wardrobe or something, it was amazing. I tried on the most amazing Mawi cocktail ring, there’s pics below. Some of the pieces were just incredible. Seeing Halston Heritage and Alexander McQueen in real life, holding it in my hand, pretty incredible when you’re used to drooling over them in films, or online and you’re used to clutching a Topshop bag on the bus home. (Not that I take the bus, but you get the analogy)
