I thought I'd show you one of the outfits I've been enjoying wearing to my internship! I've been loving sheer detailing at the moment so this top from Zara really caught my eye! It's sleeveless, slightly longer at the back and has beautiful sheer panels which really make it stand out. I've paired it with black jeans (a firm favourite of mine!) and these amazing blue heels from River Island. I'd been wanting some electric blue courts for a while and these really hit the mark; they're sling-back so super comfortable too.

The boucle jacket is from ASOS and I think it really brightens up the outfit! I get so many compliments on it and it was only £35. I added pistachio green nails and a pink cocktail ring from Primark. I love how the bright blue and oranges compliment the softer pink of the ring and green on my nails- I am wearing this colour combination non-stop at the moment!

This is the perfect outfit to wear to a fashion internship (in my opinion!). It's a fairly safe outfit but looks stunning with these colourful accents.

OOTD: Tea and China

Today my mum and I went to Ely so I thought I'd take the opportunity to get some pictures of me wearing my new dress for my blog. The weather was a bit windy but I think we got there in the end! After a morning of taking photographs I went to Peacocks Tearoom with my mum for lunch which was lovely! I had crayfish and Marie-Rose sauce on toasted rye bread with a pot of breakfast tea and a raspberry lemonade- delicious! It was nice to have such a relaxing day as I'm packing tomorrow and on Monday I start my month long fashion internship- I can't wait!

This dress is from Topshop and was very fitting for today because the print reminds me of china tea cups and we ended up having tea in some tea rooms! I adore the colours and lace texture of this dress, however, one point that I will mention is that the waist is very loose so it can look a little unflattering at times, and it comes up very big so go a size down if you're going to order it! I put a tan belt from Topshop around my waist to cinch the dress in a little and it compliments my shoes and bag, tying the look together. 

The shoes I bought yesterday on a bit of a whim! I have been looking for some tan heels for my holiday to Spain in a months time and was planning on getting some wedges but I fell in love with these beauties from Miss Selfridge. They are actually very comfortable so I know I'll get a lot of wear out of them! 

The bag is another treat to myself for finishing my first year of University last week. I've wanted a bucket bag for a while and this one is from Zara. It's real leather and absolutely beautiful. It is also very sturdy and I think it will be really useful for taking to my internship next week.

I hope you like this look and this different background. I'm constantly looking for new backgrounds to keep things interesting, so look out for some more different ones soon. I'm also thinking of venturing into the world of YouTube at some point (that is when I've learnt how to shoot and edit videos!) but hopefully that will be soon as I have a little fashion haul I would like to film for you all.

Festival Series: Denim Dreams

This is the first post in my new 'Festival Series'! I've planned a few more festival inspired outfit ideas for you all so I hope you like it, I had so much fun putting them together!

This look shows you can rock the festival, boho look on a budget! The skirt* is from So In Fashion and I love it. It's so versatile and really thick, heavy duty denim which makes it hang nicely and feel more expensive than it is. Best of all it's only £20, you can buy it here (click!). I've put a tan belt from Topshop around it to give it an interesting detail.

I've wanted a pair of tan or brown ankle boots for a while now and couldn't resist these beauties from Primark. They will look gorgeous with shorts in the summer and make a really cute summer pair of boots! These were only £18 so won't break the bank and they are lovely and comfortable. The woven detail is really different to anything I've seen lately and I love this detail. I bought them last week so I'm sure most branches of Primark will stock them still! The sunglasses were also from Primark and were only £2, the perfect addition to a festival wardrobe as it doesn't matter if they get a bit squashed at the end of the weekend! 

The crochet waistcoat is a few years old but crochet is really in at the moment so I'm sure there will be something similar in the shops if you look out for it! The bag is also from several seasons ago but I think it's perfect for a fesitval because you can put it over your shoulder and you won't have to worry too much about it. 

I hope you like the first of my festival posts! If, like me, you're not going to a festival this year, this look is still on trend and perfect for summer or just channeling your inner Vanessa Hudgens! 

Just a little update, I'm starting my internship with a fashion company in a week! I'm so excited and nervous but I know it will be good experience. Hopefully I'll be able to update you all on my progress on my blog, Twitter and Instagram so make sure you all follow me!
