The Novelty Hat

H&M blouse
H&M jacket
H&M backpack [similar here]

I cannot believe this time next week I'll be in Miami, or I'll at least be nearly there. I'm not sure with all the time differences and all. It's hard to explain how I feel about the whole trip. It still doesn't seem real and I don't think it will until I get on the plane. 

This hat is definitely tagging along on my American adventure. I gravitate towards anything with a pom pom at the moment. No jokes, even my shoes have pom poms on them. I'm just hoping this hat'll be okay in the Miami heat and the New York chill. Oh man it's gonna be so hard packing for two different seasons!

The Divided Girl

New Look watch
Pandora rings [1, 2, 3]

There was something about these boots as soon as I saw them. Sure they're pretty damn ugly, but I've always been partial to the occasional ugly item of clothing (you wait until you see the new hat I've bought). If you can get over the fact that Kat Slater would probably own a pair of these they actually add a nice little summin' summin' to an outfit.

I Carried a Watermelon

H&M cardigan
Tatty Devine necklace
H&M sunglasses

I swear these photos have sat in my drafts since June! Someone needs to give me a good talking to I swear. There's something about little pumps like these that just scream Dirty Dancing. They just remind me of Baby learning to dance. There's that one scene where she's dancing across the bridge that always comes to mind.

My Sunglasses Favourites


I know I'm a bit late to the sunglasses game (roll on Autumn!) but driving down the motorway everyday I know I'm still going to require a good pair of sunglasses for those sunny winter mornings too.

From the top are my absolute favourites from Discounted Sunglasses. These are the first pair of designer sunglasses I've ever owned so needless to say they've been looked after. I picked a classic black cat eye, a colour that goes with everything and for some reason cat eye's just scream LFW at me.

The next two are H&M. I love that the bar on the white ones sits in line with the top of the frame, rather than sitting on the nose and I have to admit the tortoise shell just get thrown in my glove compartment as my 'oh bugger it's sunny this morning' saviours.

Lastly comes Primark's £1 wanders. I picked these up maybe February time. Primark bring out these bad boys every do not fear they'll be back in the shops before we know it (not that I'm trying to wish my life away).

The prettiest playsuit of them all

H&M playsuit [the yellow option]
H&M sandels

Oh god, this playsuit is by far my favourite purchase this summer. It's just so pretty and flattering, especially when I was this brown (it seems like such a distant memory now). Someone said they thought £29.99 was a bit steep for a playsuit. I clearly didn't think so, I've gone out and bought it in the yellow version as well.

Leaf print playsuit

Primark shoes [similar here]
Primark bag
H&M necklace

This playsuit has definitely made it's way onto the 'take to Miami' list. It's another piece that I just don't think is going to have good enough weather to get chance to wear again whilst i'm at home. Oh to be British. It's seriously beautiful though. I'm so glad H&M went crazy on the palm leaf print this year. I picked up a beach towel with a leaf print on it for £3 in the sale the other day - what a bargain!

The cracked dress

H&M dress
H&M bikini top and bottom
Primark hat [similar here]
H&M sunglasses
Primark sunglasses

I'm contemplating how I'm going to style this maxi dress / long top for day to day wear. I just can't bear to save it for a bikini cover up. That's the only problem with buying things for holidays is that it probably only gets worn that once or twice when you're actually on holiday. FYI this has gone into sale in store so if you want it, you gotta be fast!
