Hunting for a denim shirt dress!!

Each summer am always on the look out for the Ultimate denim shirt dress.  Am pretty convinced that if or when I eventually find the perfect one for me I will keep it for the rest of my life.

I am very serious because denim dresses never go out of style so you can wear it year after year …after year.

I recently bought this denim dress from River Island because I love that fact that it has popper front fastenings.  I literally can’t stand doing up buttons and I certainly don’t have the patience to button a whole dress shirt. Between me and you …there is also something very satisfying about ripping poppers open πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ.

This dress is from the plus range and I bought a Size 18. It is such a cool denim colour but it’s like am wearing my little sister dress 😩. YtwThis dress was sooo close to being the one but it needs about 4 inches to the length to work for me. The struggle is so real. When you are tall a mini dress can easily become Wini! 

At just Β£20 is cute dress would fit perfectly in any wardrobe and you can shop this look here .
I completed this look with a pair of Nike trainers and a head scarf, oh and one tassel earring (very essential)

Guys am still on the hunt for a denim dress.  One that is not too short, just above the needs would be perfect.  All suggestions welcomed 😘😘

Thanks in advance. See you soon.

Wearing Skirts with trainersΒ 

I bet you never thought these two world would every collide. Practical meets feminine, it was bound to happen.  

This look is perfect for all my city crawlers. The UK weather is just so unpredictable. Too many times have I been caught in the rain in sandals. I know may of you can relate to being fooled by the foreast.

White trainers add a chic finish to this look. With tennis and Wimbledon still in the air they are perfect for all my centre court gamer.

Travel diaries – Lady in Red

The colour red is such a bold and statement colour. I think it requires lots of confidence to wear because you will most definitely get lots of stares.

I normally have my unbothered hat on while on holiday. My motto is that I will be gone in a few weeks or days so “what the heck!”

Before I share my outfit, I just wanted to show off my makeup skills.😜.
I have literally just touched down and everything is already glowing.Β  This natural sun light is great for selfies but also used the Live Love make up bronze palette.

This gorgeous off the shoulder maxi dress was take from my mother’s closet. I loved it at first sight and just had to have it. The colour is very eye catching. It’s totally on tend and the thin straps mean you don’t have to worry about the dress rolling off your shoulders.

The frills on this dress is very flattering and great for hiding my problem areas

I decided to tie a knot on the hem of this dress because it’s not quiet the right length for my tall frame. But when I like am item, IΒ  go for it and just make it work.
I believe am working it! Hopefully it’s not too obvious either πŸ˜†.

Travel diaries – Humidity is real -natural hair problems.

The biggest error was thinking I could takeΒ  my blog pictures at the end of the day. The humidity out here dealt with me.Β  Look at my hair. The fizz got the best of it.
However, I still wanted to capture.

Pretend you can’t see my hair. πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ
