Cream Of The Crop

So we’ve actually had a bit of sunshine here in the UK already – and although its gone back to being a bit chilly again I’m feeling inspired for the summer!

I’m hoping to get a little tan (even if its out of a bottle) and what better way to show off a tan than with some cream or white clothing. I’ve selected some of my favourite pieces below.

Topshop have some AMAZING pieces at the moment;

The first is this little white dress which I personally think is fabulous and it reminds me a little of the Chanel dress Keira Knightley wore recently. The waistband is bang on trend at the moment and I think you could team it with some black accessories for a real standout outfit. http://www.topshop.com/en/tsuk/product/clothing-427/dresses-442/60s-lace-shift-dress-2710010?refinements=Colour%7b1%7d~%5bcream%7cwhite%5d&bi=1&ps=200

The next of my selections is this GORGEOUS jumpsuit with a gold embellished edging around the top it just screams simple elegance. I reckon you could team this with some simple gold heels, statement earrings and a small clutch and look totally amazing. http://www.topshop.com/en/tsuk/product/clothing-427/dresses-442/jumpsuit-by-tfnc-2702098?refinements=Colour%7b1%7d~%5bcream%7cwhite%5d&bi=1&ps=200

My final Topshop selection is this cute 1920’s inspired vest. If you didn’t want to go all white you could pair this up with some skinny jeans and be ready for anything! http://media.topshop.com/wcsstore/TopShop/images/catalog/62E16FCRM_large.jpg

My next selection is from Warehouse and its a bit different… the first time I saw it I wasn’t sure but its kind of growing on me – its definitely quirky! I think its got a 1960’s vibe to it which I love and I think if the rest of your outfit was quite simple it could really work. What do you think? http://www.warehouse.co.uk///warehouse/fcp-product/315752#GBP

However if you fancied more a bohemian look then what about this beautiful kimono from River Island – I can picture this with some denim shorts, a plain vest top, gladiator sandals and aviators for that perfect summer festival look (although maybe wellies would be more suitable!)  http://www.riverisland.com/women/tops/kimonos/Cream-floral-tassel-trim-kimono-650038

And last but not least (and for those of us who are brave enough) how about these stylish tailored white trousers from Mango – I love the side splits on the hems! http://shop.mango.com/GB/p0/mango/new/textured-trousers/?id=21065544_OW&n=1&s=nuevo&ident=0__0_1395492686343&ts=1395492686343

Textured trousers

So there you have it – my pick of ‘all things white and beautiful’!!!

My personal favourites are the Topshop dress and jumpsuit, and I’d love to hear your opinions.

Thanks for reading, C xx

P.S. Just remember folks that whatever happens, it will be all-white on the night! (Sorry – I couldn’t resist another pun!)

My Weekend in London

Sorry this has taken me while to post about – its been a bit of a crazy week since I got back from London!

Our hotel was fantastic; right next to Marble Arch and walking distance to Oxford Street! This was our room, and the freebies they gave us since it was my birthday… as you can see I got straight into relaxing mode!

Anyway; I had an AMAZING time in London and the shopping was great fun although I didn’t actually buy that much. I don’t know about you but when there are so many shops sometimes I can’t make a decision about what to buy!

I did however get my Ruby Woo MAC lipstick, and I love it! It applies really easily, the colour stay put really well and I think its fab.

Usually I wear quite a lot of eye makeup but with this lipstick I think that quick sweep of eyeliner and lashings of mascara are enough. I think it gives quite a retro look!

So after purchasing this on the first day I couldn’t wait to wear it and teamed it with a very fluffy white jumper (from Topshop) my leather trousers (from H&M) and my favourite Kurt Keiger boots… and this was the result!

On our second day my husband took to me to the V&A museum to a 1980’s fashion show. It showcased all of the trends from the decades and was really interesting, some of the clothes were …interesting… and perhaps not my personal style but it was a really great exhibition and definitely worth a look if you find yourself in London. http://www.vam.ac.uk/content/exhibitions/exhibition-from-club-to-catwalk-london-fashion-in-the-80s/about-the-exhibition/

After this we visited covent garden which is always an interesting place to visit, its such a fun environment! That night we decided to go back to Covent Garden and went to Dishoom which is a fab little Indian Restaurant – its takes a while to get in but its definitely worth the wait http://www.dishoom.com/ . I was going to wear this outfit…

but decided it was far too cold and switched back to my leather trousers and a big fluffy black jumper I have which is sooooo warm!

On our third day before driving home we went around the shops again and I discovered this gorgeous little bucket bag but at nearly £80 I decided it was a little too expensive but I wanted to show it to you all anyway… its from ‘and other stories’ which you should all have a look at it you get a chance! http://www.stories.com/ its a shop owned by the same Company as H&M but a bit more high end.

I did make one other purchase which was this fabulous tartan scarf from Topshop… its soft, warm and I totally love it!
