Summer Wishlist

Summer Wishlist




I wanted to share a quick wishlist as browsing for new summer clothes have become a daily thing at the moment (procrastination). Just by chance it's turned into a monochrome-ish theme.I know that's not the traditional summer wardrobe aesthetic but I think exams have put me in that boring mind-set. However I really like the simplicity of all the items. I think the dress will be perfect for Reading festival, which I am going to this summer! It's cheap and simple and will go perfect with a clumpy pair of wellies or converse. I also love the striped shift dress from Zara, also an easy and simple dress from summer, but I think the stripes give it that chic, french look kind of??.. Also how cool would those sunglasses look with the striped dress?! I want it alllll
What are your summer wishlists????

Met Ball Favourites 2014














Since I haven't had time to do an outift post, due to exams starting on thursday... craaaap. I thought I'd do a little post on my met ball favourites. I absolutely adore seeing who is wearing what, and this year did not disappoint! It was a complete contrast from last year's Punk theme. Old school glamour was suitably embraced due to the museum celebrating the opening of the exhibition for couturier, Charles James. Topshop particular celebrated old school glamour with models, Jourdan Dunn, Toni Garnn and Kendall Jenner all sporting  Topshop's custom made gowns, all in a striking silk fabric. However Leighton Meister and Nicole Richie went for a more boho look in looser ftting dresses. I would expect nothing less of the most effortlessly dressed women known, Nicole Richie! I adore everything she wears. Saying that I think I preferred the Topshop dress she wore last year!
Overall for me the best dressed was model of the moment, Suki Waterhouse, in a beautiful, frilly Burberry number. I think if you are lucky enough to attend the Met Ball you might aswell go all out, and this she did! 

Which were you favourites?
