STYLE DIARY | JUNE/JULY


Hi everyone, I hope you're all having a lovely Summer so far. The weather here in London has been SO rubbish for the past couple of weeks, I just can't wait to get away on holiday and get a tan! I have to apologise for my absence on my blog; I know I haven't been putting in nearly as much effort as I should, and I'm so upset I missed the last two months Style Diary's. I haven't been fully happy with the layout of my blog, it doesn't really inspire me anymore and leaves me with little motivation. The good news however is, I have TOTALLY redesigned my blog and it's currently being developed and should be finished soon. All will be revealed in the next few weeks, but I really wanted to give my blog a fresh start, as I've been such a fair weather blogger. I'm so happy with the new design, it's really going to inspire me to be active and productive and produce loads of new content, as I really do love writing outfit and beauty posts for you. I just wanted to apologise for the lack of content and reassure you much more is coming soon :)

Anyway, on to this month's style diary! I showed this outfit in my last lookbook on my channel, but I still wanted to write about it as my video is instrumental so I couldn't describe all the things I loved about it- you know how passionate I get talking about the things I love, and I've felt very suppressed indeed! I've been beyond obsessed with this outfit- I've worn it probably far too many time already! Although, is there such a thing as wearing something you love too much? 


Let's begin with this beautiful little lace cami top. I picked this one up in Miss Selfridge about a month ago, and since then I have turned into a lace cami buying monster. There is something so effortlessly chic and sexy about a lace cami- it makes me wonder why I haven't been wearing them every day for my whole life! They literally require hardly any effort or styling at all, and they look so casual and relaxed but still incredibly stylish and sexy. I LOVE the new "lingerie as daywear" trend that's become really popular, and this is a really easy way to embody it. I have been daring to go braless with these tops, as I find even a strapless bra ruins that sleek, slinky look. You just have to hope it doesn't get too cold! ;) Amongst all the lace cami's I've bought, this is my most worn, as the gorgeous bluey/grey colour is so easy to wear and universal- it literally goes with everything! The actual lace detail is super pretty too. Love love love!

These amazing pink belted shorts I also picked up in Miss Selfridge, although I think they may have gone into the sale now. A lovely follower on twitter actually found these and tweeted me the link as she knew I would love them, (that is one of the reasons I just LOVE twitter), and as soon as I saw them I knew I had to have them! They are SO me! I just cannot get enough of high waisted shorts that have that gorgeous tailored look. You honestly just can't go wrong with shorts like these, and whenever I see them in a colour I don't already own, I will always buy them because I just know I will get so much wear out of them. Again, they are just so effortlessly chic, the perfect combination of smart and casual, very classy but also with a young, fun, flair. These particular ones have this really cute detail at the top, where the material looks almost "gathered", and the bow belt is just so feminine and perfect. A bow is pretty much always the way to my heart! And the dusky rose colour is so beautiful, and a really sophisticated way of wearing pink. 


Now for the bag which is another item that has found its way deep, deep into my heart! As you all know, I'm a hugeeeeeee Ted Baker fan. Every single season, their accessories never fail to leave me lusting after them. They have just got it so, so right. Pastel coloured, structured bags, often with a cute little bow detail and always rose gold hardware- it's just a total dream. And this bag has been the perfect Summer accessory! Perfectly matching the cami, this dreamy bluish-grey colour is just so versatile, I've been able to match it with absolutely everything. The stunning, subtly glamorous, rose gold chain strap makes it the perfect "day to night" accessory, and can be tucked away into the bag turning it into a gorgeous clutch. It's so pretty and elegant, and totally completes and outfit giving it a little bit more "sparkle". 


Now, these adorable little sandals from Faith at Asos, have barely left my feet this month. They are so simple and minimal, and yet so many people have noticed them and complimented them! They are a gorgeous pale nude faux suede fabric, (which can get a little dirty so beware!), and the cute little scallop edge detail and ankle strap are so, so on trend, that although they are only simple, they look so stylish. And of course they go with ABSOLUTELY everything, so at £25 they are beyond worth it!

Of course I always keep it simple with accessories, sticking to my Pandora bracelet and Tiffany necklace, although I did find a really gorgeous little bracelet in Accessorize on sale which I've been wearing- totally forgot to get a picture of it but it just reminded me of how damn PRETTY and dainty the jewellery is in Accessorize, and it was nice to add something new to my wrist now and then! And of course I've been wearing my beloved Aldo sunglasses, although they've now sadly broken so I'm on the hunt for some replacements. I'm thinking of maybe treating myself to some Rayban's at Duty Free this Summer, but shhhhh.


Makeup wise, I've been keeping it pretty simple, as the temperature has risen a lot and London is so hot and sticky and heavy makeup will literally melt off my face. For my base I've been loving the L'oreal Cushion foundation, as it is a gorgeous sheer yet buildable coverage which is perfect for this weather, and also has the nicest dewy sheen. For highlight I've been using my Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look In a Palette highlighter, for a beautiful champagne glow. And on my lips I cannot stop reaching for the Elizabeth Arden Sunset Kiss Lip Gloss- it has the most stunning rose golden colour, and transforms any lipstick into a work of art, but also looks great on it's own. Fragrance wise, I have been utterly ADDICTED to the Giorgio Armani, Prive Pivoine Suzhou fragrance. It is probably the sexiest "fresh floral" scent I have ever experienced! It captures the beautiful scent of the Japanese Peony, and is incredible bright yet musky and spicy at the same time. Basically, it is indescribably stunning, although it comes at a hefty price tag! And for my hair, is has pretty much stayed in a messy topknot the whole month, as the heat and humidity of the city does not do kind things to my hair! But I really like the effortless, cute look of a messy bun, and it's also nice to not have a sweaty back under a blanket of thick hair!

So that's it for this months Style Diary! I hope you enjoyed it and I pray you can forgive me for my lack of posts. I cannot wait for you to see the new design, and to really get stuck in, although I do have a few posts planned for before that, so keep your eyes peeled and thank you again for all of your lovely comments and support, it means the world as always. 

Lots of love!

Freds
