THE CROPPED TRENCH

As I'm sat writing this post the rain is tapping of the living room window, the sunny bank holiday weekend i was hoping for seems to be lingering in the distance. I do however think its the perfect time to share with you these photographs from when the weather was a touch warmer. 

One of my all time favourite blogger's Danielle Vanier collaborated with Navabi, and created a collection that is to die for! All of the pieces are the perfect must haves for building a capsule wardrobe. I splurged on both pairs of trousers, the white shirt and the cropped trench.

It's the cropped trench that has to be my most loved piece of the collection, I've worn it the most out of all of them all. A modern take on the classic longer trench and as you can see from these images, the trench fits me in all of the right places. The perfect length, its sits just under my waist. I don't have to worry about rolling up the sleeves, they are the perfect length and the baby pink lining always brings a smile to my face when putting on the jacket. 

I do hope there is another collection on the horizon, I'm excited to see what new pieces will be available in the future.

THE TEA DRESS

HAPPY BANK HOLIDAY! I hope you're all taking full advantage of the three day weekend, I certainly am. It's been a few weeks since my last post, I've been so busy trying to organise my life, there are simply not enough hours in a day, or even week to fit everything in. Now that I'm all organised again, my blog has taken the number one spot once more.

With Summer on the horizon and I'm a big fan of dresses, especially one with a pattern! As soon as i saw this tea dress in the new in section of ASOS back in January, i has to snap it up. As there's still a little chill in the air, I have been layering it with my other love...a black polo, last count I had six, yes six identical black polo tops all from different brands. 

There are three things that i absolutely love about this dress; 

THE NECKLINE: A v neckline is very flattering, especially if you have a large chest, it's perfect for layering a selection of necklaces. 

THE LENGTH: As I'm 5'11 it's always struggle finding dresses due to them always being two short! but this dress sits just above my ankle, meaning i can show off my footwear and of course i don't have to worry about showing the world the underwear on a windy day. 

THE COLOUR: Green is a colour that i have become to love over the past year, and compliments my dark hair, blue eyes and pale skin perfectly.
