Week of Outfits

I haven't done a 'Today's Outfit' post in ages, so I thought I'd make up for it today by showing you 3 outfits!

This first outfit was worn when I went out to dinner with my friends recently. I am loving coloured jeans at the moment, and was desperate for a pair, so I bought this dark read pair the other week. I teamed the jeans with this cute bow-tie shirt.
Shirt: H! by Henry Holland
Jeans: Miss Selfridge
This outfit was worn to my cousins 22nd birthday dinner. I loved this outfit because its so simple, so its all about the accessories.
Scarf: Miss Selfridge
Vest: H&M
Necklace: H&M
Clutch: Accessorize
Jeans: Miss Selfridge
This outfit was worn to another dinner with friends, but as you can probably tell from the short dress, this outfit was from back in August.
Dress: H&M
Bag: Accessorize
Belt: H&M
Ring: a shop (I can't remember what it's called) in Russia

In a galazy far, far away...

In early 2011 we saw Dolce and Gabbana's lacey Spring collection erupt into one of the hottest looks on the red carpet. And it looks like they've done it again this season! 
Now D&G has us seeing stars with their newest trend! 
The Italian fashion house pioneered the look in their Autumn/Winter 2011 collection, with the bold print splashed on everything from body-cons to skinny trousers to flowing maxis. Since then, it has become huge hit, among A-listers, with the likes of Jessica Alba, Nicki Minaj, Olivia Wilde and Rosario Dawson rocking the look on the red carpet. 
So, what is it that is making this star print fly off the shelves? Well D&G have cleverly fused a fun print with sexy silhouettes; a great way to combine girly and sultry = irresistible!
But not all of us have the hefty bank balance to indulge in beautiful D&G dresses, so it's a good thing that the good old British high street has produced some fabulously on-trend pieces:

Tea and a catch up?

Hello bloggers!
So its been a while since I last blogged, but its because I've been away!
Firstly I went for the weekend to Reading Festival! Which I can only describe as disgusting but amazing! The bands were great and because I didn't actually know a lot of the bands there, I was introduced to some amazing acts. My highlight of the weekend was seeing 30 Seconds To Mars and Ed Sheeran, who were both incredible. It was my fist time camping, and I'm not gonna lie to you, it was pretty gross. The toilets in the campsite were beyond awful, and I have never had such an uncomfortable sleep in my life. And I cannot even describe how bad the mud was - at some points it was knee deep! As amazing as the experience was, I was sooooo happy when I got home to a shower and my bed! I'll post some photos soon! I would've done it sooner, but I used disposable cameras so I have to wait to get them developed. I'm hoping that I don't collected them, and they're all black!
I can't wait to try out other festivals now; bring on next summer!

Here are some of the amazing acts I discovered at Reading!

This is Daughter at the BBC Introducing Stage for unsigned/undiscovered acts. I was in this crowd watching her! I just love her voice it's so beautiful but haunting at the same time. My favourite song is Lanfill. The second video id from Bejamin Francis Leftwitch

Rainy Boy Sleep, at the Introducing Stage. My last video is from Miles Kane, who I found out is a pretty well known act, but I had never heard of him and stumbled across his act at the NME stage and loved the 'classic rock' sound to it.

The day after I returned from Reading I flew to Sitges, Spain for a few days with my mum and sisters before we go back to school/work. It was so nice to have a bit of sun and just relax on the beach after my 4 sleepless nights in Reading! Sitges is such a lovely town; there was lots of nice tapas restaurants and cute boutiques. 
It was just the perfect relaxing holiday!
