Not to use it as an excuse for my infrequent blogging schedule, but this summer I have been travelling quite a bit, as some of you may know. I thought that I’d compile the photographs from the two trips I’ve been on and share them with you right here on the blog – you never know, you may even catch the travel bug too!
Mirabel, Midi-Pyrenees, France
A one week get-away with my closest friends – filled with lakes, food markets and many, many card games.

Just two nights away in the most beautiful city, sight-seeing and exploring ruin bars.
Where have you been off to this summer? Or where are you going? Recommendations would be wonderful!
Now, it may come as a shock to you, but an odd thing has been happening in Britain lately… It has been WARM! And, wait for it… SUNNY!! Amazing, I know. It probably won’t last for more than 3 days, but I thought that the majority of you would have some kind of summer break booked in now and a little post on my seasonal ‘hunting the high-street’ could be quite handy. This post is about the best items available this summer for those of us who can’t afford the Moschino tees and Gucci shades, without compromising on style…
Okay, for a starters, anyone that knows me well enough will know that I believe the shape of clothes is just as important as their design; if a piece is the wrong shape for you, no matter how beautiful it is, you shouldn’t buy it. Many high-street brands cater for a slim, tall figure because this is what models are, but, in actual fact, this makes it very difficult for most real women to find clothes that fit well. I’m only 16, for example, and I need a size 12 in Topshop to get any trousers to fit over my hips – it’s a little ridiculous to say the least. Anyway, this summer, I’ve seen so many stripes in the shops, as well as ‘apron’ cuts and pops of citrus colours. A handful of these SS16 trends inspired my choices when it came to picking out clothes for the holiday season – take a look below to find out more! And if you’re interested in where any pieces came from, simply scroll over the photographs for more information.
