Floral Fancy

Can I just start by saying I love getting feedback from you guys, especially when it involves a specific request. With that in mind today’s post is not only about the must-have dress of the summer season but was also requested by a good friend, so here’s hoping you all enjoy.

A floaty floral dress for summer time is not ground breaking, but this year there is something so beautifully fresh and different about what’s out there. Maybe it’s the fabric, cut or sleeve details that set this season apart, I’m not sure, but whatever it is we all seem to be feeling it.

If you’re not keen on your arms and in particular the dreaded bingo wings, then having a longer sleeve on your dress can be a game changer. This summer you’ll find the whole shebang of sleeve available – off the shoulder, cold shoulder, bell sleeves, ruffles and tiers! Take a peak at the floral fancys of ss17 catwalks and street style stars that have caught my eye.

I recently bagged myself a blooming beautiful maxi dress from Boohoo which I wore to a wedding last weekend. I don’t normally girlie prints, especially in dress form, but teamed with my biker and hardware heavy Stella clutch it toughened up the final look up just enough for me to still feel like me.  Goes to show how versitile a little floral number can actually be.

So if you’re currently on the hunt for a dress that’s fantastically floral, feminine and frilly look no further because I’ve done most of the searching for you.

Bohemian Babe

Just another manic Monday, actually it’s not and I’m quite liking it.  Apart from the fact I ended up puking all day Easter Sunday, which probably saved me thousands of calories from all the chocolate I planned on scoffing, the bank holiday weekend has been lovely, as have the two weeks of half term actually and I’m a little bit dreading the school run tomorrow.

Any who, you can see from the title we’re going all ‘boho babe’ today, influenced of course by the fact we’ve just been bombarded with Coachella spam (no I’m not hating – who am I kidding) and that I’m off on hols very shortly to my fav place in the world – the White Isle.

My style is fairly clean on a day to day basis, but come summer time I LOVE to release my mind and body into all things boho.  I love the carefree look and feel you get with bohemian styling and now more than ever it’s easy to take this from the beach to the bar, or if you’re not poolside, from day to night and every occasion in-between.  See how the street stylers and insta-fashionistas do it below.

Most of us probably have a kaftan lurking in our holiday wardrobe and that’s probably where it’s gets the most use, but you can see above how the style set are making the most of their kaftans and incorporating them into their everyday wardrobe.  Not only that, but they are teaming over the easiest outfit on earth, jeans and a plain tee….et volia, boho chic at it’s finest, taking you from beach to the beat of the streets.

As with any trend there is no need to go top to toe.  This season there are hundreds (and I mean hundreds) of peasant, boho style blouses, from high street to high end.  One in particular that has caught everyone’s eye is this awesome offering from Next  Available in red and blue it screams boho and is reminiscent of the Vita Kin blouse but without the £1000 (yes you are reading that correctly) price tag.

So whether this is a trend you do year after year or something you’ve been longing to try, this season is one of the best for beautiful boho vibes.  Here’s the my best of the rest from our fabulous high street and cyber space…..Peace out peeps.
