July is going to be pretty busy for me as I’m off to a festival and then to Las Vegas. So obviously I needed a few new amazing pieces to take with me. So last months purchases have mainly been with that in mind.
The Embroidered Dress
I wanted the perfect summer dress and I found it in Zara I love the embroidery detail, its very girly, delicately dreamy. I also love the length as its super short which is great for my height and that 40degree Vegas weather!
Folk Festival Dress
This dress just epitamises festival fashion with the simple smock dress shape in a bold colour, very different to my usual black or ditsy florals but I fell in love with it. I styled this dress with a fedora, western buckle belt and bag. The belt helps give the smock dress some shape whilst the silver buckles add an edge. This dress also looks great without the belt for a more girly boho feel. The sleeves are really cute too are the perfect length.
Another Slogan T-shirt
I have quite the collection of slogan tees which have been building up these last couple of months however I just couldn’t resist one more. I love the boxy shape and cropped length, not to mention the slogan itself. 1990 the year that bought us Vanilla Ice (ice ice baby) the first Home Alone film, Madonna’s iconic cone bra and most importantly the year I was born!
I have already worn this casualy with high waisted Jamie Jeans(Topshop) as well as styling it with my polka dot culottes (Newlook). I would also wear this tee with a black denim skirt or mom short.
Lust After Levi’s
This next item I have been lusting over for months a Levis black denim jacket so I finally thought I would treat myself. Unfortunately they didn’t have a women’s available so I bought a men’s medium size which actually works well as an oversized ‘I’ve just threw my boyfriends jacket on’ look. The oversized shape looks great with ditsy floral dresses to grunge them up and with black skinny jeans an slogan t-shirt for a classic, cool, easy look.
‘B-A-N-A-N-A-S’ (sang like Gwen Stefani)
Of course no holiday would be complete with out an oversized beach bag. I saw this online and click and collected the hell out of it. I love the canvas material mixed with the rope handles and straw woven base all bought together with the fun banana print. It’s also huge so great for carry everything including the kitchen sink!
No brainer obviously a best buy of the month and finally the week is here! Latitude is my favourite festival, it promotes creativity with giant art sculptures in the Faraway Forest as well as offering platforms for literature and poetry not to mention the great selection of bands. I’m crazy excited to be going again!!
