Beautiful Blossoms

I can’t help but feel cheery when the sun in shinning. I am a pure summer baby in every sense, not just because my birthday is the middle of July but because I love all things summer! I love the heat and enjoy almost everything about a summer day. The bright and gorgeous weather, beautiful plants and flowers, butterflies, the extra long days and the shorter nights. One thing I enjoy in particular is playing around with my summer wardrobe. I think what I love about summer fashion is the varying ways that we can express ourselves. Some like to show a lot of skin and catch a tan, others like bright and fun pastel colours and some like myself enjoy switching things up. I love a bright and fun outfit but I also like black floaty maxi dresses this time of year. I find that they make for amazing transitional outfits. You could possibly wear one to work and then head out at the end of the day for a nice meal or drinks with friends.

I really enjoy wearing chiffon dresses. I find that the light and airy material makes for an elegant dress which can be worn during the day and night but the good news is that they feel comfortable in quite hot and humid weather. This dress I’m wearing is from one of my favourite Scandinavian brands Zizzi. This dress is from a previous collection and is a little big for me as I have recently lost some weight. However I love it that much that I really don’t care lol. I’m wearing this dress is a size XL. I really like the white binding across the bust, arms and hem. I think the slight addition makes for a nice monochrome feel.

As the dress is quite long I wanted to wear a slight heel so that I didn’t keep stepping on the hem. I of course opted for my black Michelle Heels from Hotter, my go-to pair of black heels at the moment. Unfortunately we haven’t been blessed with many hot and sunny days in London this year. It’s starting to look as though things are heating up weather-wise which is great for me because I can’t get enough of it! Hopefully i’ll get to go somewhere exotic and beautiful at some point this year but for now i’m going to make the most of the sunshine we get here.

It’s been an interesting few weeks that have passed by for me. I’ve witnessed some of my friends having babies, getting engaged etc. others have been going through some more painful changes and I’ve been going through changes both personally and professionally. Seeing the spring flowers popping up and the blossoms on the trees for me is not only a sign of this gorgeous summer starting but of many positive and pleasant changes. I’m gonna enjoy the wind in my hair, sun on my skin and whatever comes along! Change is exciting and brings with it many amazing things!

Remember whatever you wear, feel fabulous in it and wear it with a smile!

    I am the same! I come alive in the summer days and relish every chance to go out and about. This dress looks lovely, light and sheer. I don’t normally wear black, but this is a really lovely dress x

      Hey Tanya I hope all is well. I just wish w had more sunshine it’s gone back to the doom ad gloom. Thanks for the compliment on the dress. I love my colour but I find black Maxi dresses are really comfortable and fun to wear in the summer and surprisingly not too hot lol xx
