Luxemme Darchelle Dress

Luxemme Darchelle Dress | Poppy alla Norma

…and now for something completely different! Here’s a fun fact for you – I have NEVER in my life worn a backless dress. In fact, I’m pretty scared of them. As lovely as backless dresses look on some people, I just can’t get over the fact I can’t easily wear a bra with them. Going braless just feels so… wrong. So, why exactly have I written a rave review about one? Read on to find out…

By the way, I found my facial expressions in these photos hilarious as I was going through and editing them, so feel more than welcome to laugh your head off at my smirks and resting bitch face. You’re welcome.

OOTD: H&M Constellation Scarf

Even though it’s supposed to be the middle of summer here in the UK at the moment, the weather still seems a little chilly. Brits need a wardrobe full of diverse clothing options to be prepared for any kind of weather at any time of year, and a perfect accessory to help prepare for our changeable weather conditions is a light, floaty scarf. I spotted this beauty in H&M a few weeks ago and decided it was the perfect scarf for our varied summer conditions.

OOTD: Poorboy Vintage Midi Skirt

OOTD: Poorboy Vintage Midi Skirt

Poorboy is, without a doubt, my favourite vintage shop in Hull. I never fail to find something unique whenever I visit either of their boutiques, and when they have a sale on (like they do right now!), the bargains are incredible. If you aren’t in the Hull area, you can also buy from Poorboy online or just drool over their Instagram, as I often do.

Crochet Wishlist

1. Pretty Little Thing | £25
2. Topshop | £26

4. Kiss the Sky (via ASOS) | £40
5. H&M | £14.99
6. New Look | £19.99

One of the trends I love most in the summer months is crochet. Feminine, romantic and oh-so-pretty, crochet is a staple of spring/summer fashion for very good reason! The high street has outdone itself this year, and everywhere you look you can find beautiful crochet pieces in all sorts of shapes and styles. Kimonos are perfect for rocking the boho chic look at festivals, or you can go sleek and sophisticated with a white crochet playsuit. Crop tops and skirts are playful and fun ways to rock the trend, but if the weather starts taking a turn (let’s face it, it’s Britain, most of summer will probably be grey and miserable!) you can throw on a crochet jumper or a long-sleeve dress to stay warm in style.
