Tropical Flowers & Kittens with Sunglasses

I decided to order this dress to try it on but had no big expectations, in fact I was pretty sure it'll go back as soon as it arrived.

My first thought when I opened the parcel was that the colours were a bit too bright, but given that they were supposed to look tropical, I decided to try it on and fell in love with it for its fab fit and girly design and print!

Self Portrait Azaelea Lookalike Dress in Blush Pink

This year, the most amazing women from Olivia Palermo to Liv from What Olivia Did and Janina from Love and Urban and my fav fellow blogger Andini from Adventures of an Anglophile have been showing of their amazing Self Portrait dresses!

These dresses are showstoppers, and except maybe all Erdem collections :) and a few Zimmerman dresses, they are my absolute favourite designs!

However, they do come with a hefty price tag attached, price that most of us will not pay for one dress when we can have a wardrobe full of more wearable dresses from our High Street retailers.

But through a little miracle, maybe not so great for the designers at Self Portrait, but definitely for us fashion lovers who need to have these dresses in our wardrobe, I have found SHEIN.COM and their amazing Hallow Out Fit Flare Lace Cami Dress!

Off Shoulder Cut Out Lace Dress Perfection

Like most of you, I've been drawn towards white lace dresses for quite some time now and this beauty from Asos perfectly combines the off the shoulder trend with my love for white, embroidered dresses.

Archive by Alexa Chung - The Eliza Dress

There was a lot of hype surrounding the launch of Archive by Alexa Chung at Marks and Spencer and I must admit I was hooked and ordered at least 7 items as soon as they became available! :)
After a lot of debate, and I mean a lot, the Harry blouse went back together with most of the other items! The Harry Blouse was great but maybe not something I would've worn that often, to be honest! If only the material was not that cheap see through cotton, I know I wouldn't have been able to send it back!

But anyway, The Eliza Dress was one of the 2 items I have kept and I couldn't be happier with my choice! :)

Primark Haul May 2016

At the weekend, we finally got a Primark in York Monks Cross and I was there at 9:55 to join the huge queue! Wondered whether I will be there for hours, but was pleasantly surprised when the doors opened at 10:05 and all of us got to enter within 5 minutes or less. The store is huge, 16 cash registers downstairs only, complimentary bottles of water and lovely staff to help out! Obviously, could always do with more changing rooms but really the only thing I was let down by was the home department, which has hardly anything in it, and it is squeezed on the second floor between kids and mens. That being said, never have I ever been there when a store opened its doors for the first time, and not having to be disappointed by my size being sold out, I came out with a nice selection of goodies, as follows! :)

Black and White Stripped Blazer

As soon as I saw this blazer in a issue of Look Magazine on Fearne Cotton, I was on my way to York to source it out and add it to my wardrobe! :)

I always thought stripes demand attention and add style to any outfit, make them black and white and I'm sold! Every single time! :)

Spring Neutrals

Spring to me is all about lighter colours and textures, and this neutral little outfit is exactly what comes to mind when I think Spring! Well, apart from ice cream and other bits and pieces! :)

Culottes Love

Well, while it's so lovely seeing Spring outfits on all the London based blogs, unfortunately, here in Yorkshire, coats are still a must! 

However, I did venture baring my legs a little bit, showcasing the trend I love most this SS16, the culottes!

Shearling Patchwork Faux Fur Coat of Dreams

So many beautiful shades in one faux fur coat - dreamy! :)

Like one of my friends pointed out, it's not a coat you can just walk around a small town and expect people to think you're sane :), but for a night out or a visit to the city this coat is an absolute showstopper!

Dungaree Love

Although they are a bit fussy to wear a whole day at work, dungaree/jumpsuits have won me over a while ago!

This amazing wool mix checked fabric tailored dungaree comes from Asos and it's my best Asos purchase in a while!

Little New Look Home Haul

I don't actually think New Look have a home department, but last time I was in York, while looking around sales items, I found a little corner with all sorts of cute home goodies!

Now, if you are an inhabitant of this planet :), then you are aware of the L.E.D / neon signs trend, and you also know they are not the cheapest things around!

Well, must say New Look provided the biggest shocker with the most amazing L.E.D. signs at only £9.99!!!!
