OOTD: Boutique of Molly Dahlia Dress

OOTD: Boutique of Molly Dahlia Dress

I have been trying to blog about this Boutique of Molly dress for an absolute age, I can’t even begin to tell you how frustrating photographing this dress has been! Every single photo out of the 100+ that had been taken by myself, my dad and my boyfriend have been unusable. From dodgy facial expressions to horrific blurs, I didn’t manage to get a single good photo of myself in this dress. FINALLY though, after my third attempt at a photo shoot, I have some pictures of this gorgeous dress that are actually worth posting. I have to say, it has been worth the effort.

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.

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.

Review: Superdrug Solait Suncare

Review: Superdrug Solait Suncare

White Rabbit! I can’t believe it’s July already – where is this year going?

Here in Britain we’re currently in the midst of a two-day heatwave and, being as white as a sheet and a hayfever sufferer like I am, I’m hating it. I’m sincerely hoping for a quick return of the rain and big grey clouds I’m used to as a Mancunian!

Although sunbathing is my idea of hell, sometimes you can’t avoid sun exposure. That’s when you have to reach for the sun cream, but finding decent cruelty-free sun protection can be tricky business. Before I went to Spain I spent a long time looking for a reputable brand of CF suncream, and after a lot of searching, I decided to head to my local Superdrug and try out their Solait brand of suncare products.
