Beautiful Bikinis

I’m currently packing to go on a girly holiday to Tenerife. After finishing my 4th and final year at university two weeks in the sun is just what I need. While scrolling through endless pages of bikinis I thought I would round up my favourite bikinis in the stores at the moment. Patterns, crotchet, black and white, colour, bandeau, triangle and everything in between, here are my favourite bikinis;

Met Gala 2015

I had a bit of a long lie this morning after staying up till the early hours to see all the Met Gala 2015 dresses. When I eventually got up I decided not to write a blog post about my favourites this year however after looking through all the photos again I decided I needed to save all my favourites and if I was saving them anyway I might as well share them with you too!

Although there is always a theme to the Met Gala’s (my favourite was 2013 Punk: Chaos to Couture!) I always find that some celebrities take the theme much more serious that others and some just ignore it all together which I am sure does not impress Anna Wintour. This year’s theme was China: Through the Looking Glass, which some, such as Sarah Jessica Parker took to extremes and other approached it in a more subtle manner.

Anyway, I scrolled through the hundreds of photos on the Vogue website, admiring the beautiful and gasping at the horrific. By the end, I had 10 clear favourites so here we go…..

2850C34600000578-0-image-m-121_1430795319952

Rose Byrne – Calvin Klein Collection. I love this, the colour, the detail and the fit. Accessories have been matched perfectly to bring out the different coloured spots on the dress. You’ll soon see that a lot of my favourite dresses are Calvin Klein! They did amazing this year!

emily-ratajkowski-met-gala-2015

Emily Ratajkowski – Topshop. It wouldn’t be a proper blog post without a bit of Topshop! This Topshop dress subtlely highlights the China theme without being too over the top. The colours are great and I love the blue that make the dress stand out a little more.

kate-hudson-met-gala-2015

Kate Hudson – Michael Kors. This dress is beautiful and her makeup and hair looks great with it. The sequins being slightly spaced out makes the dress more elegant in my opinion as the small gaps allow her skin tone to break up the gold.

lily-aldridge-met-gala-2015

Lily Aldridge – Carolina Herrera. I questioned this one a bit but I just couldn’t get over the beautiful colour and the small buttons trailing down the back of the dress. The detail at the bottom gives what would be a plain dress, a wow factor. Her choice of dark lipstick gives an amazing contrast.

reese-witherspoon-met-gala-2015

Reese Witherspoon – Jason Wu. It may be simple and some might see it as a bit of a safe bet but I think Reese Witherspoon looks amazing in this dress. The fit is amazing and the slit up the front paired with the necklace and those killer shoes gives the look that little bit extra.

kendall-jenner-met-gala-2015

Kendall Jenner – Calvin Klein Collection. Yes, another Calvin Klein number but, to be honest, all the celebrities dressed in Calvin Klein this year looked amazing. Kendall Jenner looks unbelievable in this dress. I love the colour and yes it is a little bit revealing but to be honest if I had Kendall Jenner’s figure I would want to show it off.

kate-beckinsale-met-gala-2015

Kate Beckinsale – Diane Von Furstenberg. Sparkly dresses were massive at this years Met Gala and Kate Beckinsale went all out with this gold dress. This one grabbed my attention because of the style. I love the high neck and loose top half followed by a figure hugging bottom half, it’s just a bit different from the rest and it is definitely a style I would choose for myself.

sienna-miller-met-gala-2015

Sienna Miller – Thakoon. This is a little different but I love it. I am a massive fan of suits and this just takes that to a whole new level. The sequins and beads creating an all over fringed effect with a tuxedo style, it’s just unbelievable.

rosie-huntington-whiteley-met-gala-2015

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley – Versace. I already tweeted about this early this morning as I couldn’t get over how amazing she looks in this Versace piece. I mean the colour would completely wash out anyone with pale skin but I do love it. The fit and intricate cut makes it’s so unique and unusual looking that it just stands out.

rita-ora-met-gala-2015

Rita Ora – Tom Ford. Finally Rita Ora. I spend most days lusting over Rita Ora’s wardrobe and this piece is no different. I absolutely adore the collar and the cap sleeves. The detail all over is just beautiful and for Tom Ford to then finish it off with a fur trim is just incredible!

So there you have it, my 10 favourite looks from last night’s Met Gala, a lot of red, loads of sparkle, a bit of fur, some amazing accessories and an awful lot of jealousy!

Let me know what you think of my favourites and I’d love to know who your favourite was and who you thought made the wrong choices!!

Festival Fashion

Ok so its official festival season has officially started, and it started with the most fashionable festival, Coachella. I spent the whole two weekends wishing I was there, in fact just wishing I was going to a festival of some sort. Over the past few years I have been to T in the Park, my idea of a ‘proper’ festival; mud, rain, sunshine, music, dancing and lots of fun. The other festival I have been to in Scotland was last year when I went to Radio 1’s Big Weekend, which was so much fun especially as its free! Finally I have been to Benicassim, an amazing week in Spain, you spend your days lying on the beach and your nights enjoying the amazing music and atmosphere, I would 100% recommend it!

Anyway, seen as festival season has begun I thought I would share a few pieces in the shops just now that can help create that perfect festival look (not all are practical for British festivals!!). Continue reading

Just a Little Bit of Fringing

IMG_0167IMG_0170IMG_0166  IMG_0168

– Leather Jacket – Topshop (similar) –
– Top – Zara (Alternative) –
– Shorts – Missguided
– Socks – Toshop
– Boots – Topshop (similar) –
– Bag – Alexander McQueen –

As soon as I saw these Missguided suede shorts I fell in love. I’ve been looking for the perfect fringe piece to add to my summer wardrobe and these Missguided shorts are just perfect! I got to wear them this weekend to celebrate my sisters 30th and my boyfriends 24th (they are on the same day so its a good job these shorts were so reasonably priced). Styled with all black they created a dressier look which was perfect for dinner and drinks. However I think they would look amazing with white converse and a white t-shirt, the perfect festival look! Can’t wait to wear them in a more casual way.

Florida

Ok guys, so this is probably the latest blog post I have ever done but once I finally had time to type it up and work on it, it was Christmas so I thought I would save it for closer to summer, a more appropriate time. So here it is all about my trip to Florida.

DSCN1525

So for my 21st birthday (last September, oops) I jetted off to Florida with my boyfriend for 11 days of fun in the sun. After deciding that was where I wanted to go we started looking into it all and found an amazing deal with Virgin Holidays.

First of all may I say flying long haul with Virgin is an absolute dream, yes you get movies like most other airlines and yes you get drinks and food but on other airlines do you get FAB ice lollies and love heart sweeties? I doubt it! I was like a little kid watching all my favourite movies eating my ice lolly! Continue reading
