Summer is here!!

Firstly an apology for how neglected this blog has been!! I have just finished my final ever year of school and so was busy with revision, exams and making plans for my gap year starting in September. I have been lucky enough to find myself a job Au Pairing for a lovely family in... PARIS!!! So starting from September I will be able to Blog about fashion from my favourite fashion capital in the whole world!! Now, on to this week's blog post!

Living in England, I spend the majority of the year in tights and jumpers so when the sun comes out, like every Brit, I go crazy and pull out all of my summer outfits before the sunshine gets the chance to escape again! This summer my staple item is a block colour maxi dress. It might not be the most up-to-the-moment fashionable piece but it is an investment item that will be stylish every summer. If you are bold then choose a bright colour like yellow or hot pink. If you're less confident with your clothes then go for a pastel pink or a soft blue. Here are some of my faves:
Asos Petite Exclusive
Kore by Sophia Kokosalaki

Denim and Supply by Ralph Lauren
I was fortunate enough to find a pink maxi with pocket detail in Primark for just £5! (Something that is great given my still limited student budget). This style of dress is really easy to transition from day to night and so is perfect for those holiday capsule wardrobes. I styled my dress with flip-flops and aviator sunglasses for day time and then dressed it up with tan sandles with a slight heel and an Aztec necklace for evenings:
Evening look
Daytime look

That's all for this post but keep a look out for a new current inspirations post coming soon!
