IMG_0188 IMG_0192 IMG_0193 IMG_0200 IMG_0206 IMG_0214Whenever I wear this skirt I am always reminded of the music video to Kylie Minogue’s song ‘Can’t get you out of my head’ and I feel like a bit of a diva, ready to throw some serious shapes on the dance floor. It is one of those pieces of clothing that you either really love or hate and of course I love it. Your friends certainly won’t loose you on the dance floor! I wore this outfit to a friend’s 21st birthday and it was the perfect choice for the occasion. I adore the high neck style of this crop top and the lace detail. Lace is one of my favourite ways to dress up an outfit as it looks so feminine and elegant. On another note I am heading to Florence tomorrow for two months and I am extremely excited! Now, time to dash and finish off some last minute packing ! For those of you who have a bank holiday to look forward to this weekend enjoy your extra day off. Talk soon

These girls are bold and daring when it comes to dressing. Their style changes from hippy and laid back one day to grunge the next. However they always seem to have that effortless and put together finish to their look and they certainly know how to pull out all the stops on the red carpet. Throughout their career we sure have seen a few changes in the appearance of these two style icons. From the two innocent twins who appeared on Two of a Kind to the successful fashion designers they have become today, the girls have created a well deserved name for themselves in the fashion world. I know that certainly for me and I am sure for many of you, their names are two of the first to come to mind when thinking about fashion icons. I hope you enjoy this post and let me know who a few of your other style icons are in the comment section below. Wishing everyone a happy week!

It feels like it was ages ago that I wrote my last post. I suppose that’s because it is ! Sorry for the lack of communication recently but due to university exams I was just so so busy studying that unfortuneately I didn’t have any time to spend on my blog. Thank god they are behind me now though. You have no idea the relief I am feeling writing this post and realizing that I can forget about college work for a few months! I have some really exciting news that I am going to be spending the months of June and July in Florence this summer. I absolutely cannot wait! As some of you may know I study Italian at university so I am going over to Italy to try and improve my spoken language. Now that the exams are over, I finally have time to do a bit of shopping and it’s a good thing because my wardrobe is seriously lacking in summer attire! Now on to the real business of this post… I imagine that I will be wearing sandals if not everyday, most days while I am in Florence so I need to invest in a good pair that will wear well and also that will be comfortable as I will be doing a lot of walking. Seeing as I was reasearching sandals for myself I thought I ‘d share some of my favorite ones that I have come across so far. So, for anyone else that is going on a holiday or for those of you who are just lucky enough to live in a warm climate (I’m not jealous at all)  this post is for you .  I hope you see a pair that you like here. Also if anyone happens to know of any good tips such as must do things while I am in Florence or nice cafes and restaurants there, I would be delighted if you would let me know in the comments section below. That’s all of my news for today. Talk soon

Hey guys ! So I’m now into my final week off before exams start next Monday . I’ve had three weeks of straight studying and I feel like I’m about to go crazy! Some of you may think this is weird but I actually want to start my exams by this stage so that it can be summer then! I generally find that the build up before starting the exams is the worst part, because once you start into them you are so busy that you don’t notice the time sailing by. I have noticed myself drifting off into daydreams about summer every now and then when really I’m supposed to be studying, but I just can’t help myself! Today I thought I’d share with you some summer inspiration photos. These photos are getting me so excited for summer and for that post exam feeling of relief when you can sit back, relax and just enjoy yourself as by that stage you have done all you can do and now it’s just down to the wait for your results.  That’s all for today . I will keep you posted on how my exams go. Talk soon

Trinity Ball

Last Friday (4th April) was my final day as a second year in university. Where on earth did that year go!? Of course I still have exams, in three weeks to be precise Wwish me luck, Eeeek!!) but it was the official end to lectures for the college year. It is tradition that every year, on the last day of term, the Trinity Ball takes place. However even though it is called a ball it isn’t your typical long gown kind of event. Boys must dust down their tuxes for the evening but most girls wear more of a cocktail style dress. I would describe the event as a formal nighttime festival if you can imagine what that might look like ! The guys are lucky because as I said they must wear a black suit but it can be a little more difficult for us girls to try and find the right balance between your debs style dress and your daytime summer dress. I searched online for quite a bit before I narrowed my decision down to this dress and one other. In the end I opted for this Asos dress because as I mentioned in my previous posts I am a sucker for a stand out pattern. And, seeing as we are now into the brighter Spring days I also wanted to add a bit of colour to my outfit. I am delighted that I chose this dress as I know I will get lots of wear out of it in the coming months too! What do you guys think of the look ? That’s all for today.

Talk soon
