About Me

My photo
I am 21, I live in London, I love clothes and I'm a bit of a slave to fashion. My friends know of my addiction to the latest trends and often ask me for my advice which I am more than happy to give(!) I also have a secret habit of styling people that I see on my travels, reinventing an improved style for them in my mind! I've been following a few fashion blogs but haven't really found what i've been looking for, so i've decided to create my own to share my ideas of style with anyone who is interested! I am a working girl on a tight budget (a healthy size 10) and clothes have to come at a price I can afford. I am hoping to show that it is possible to keep up with the trends with buys from the high street. So, I will be posting things that I would want to see in a blog. I hope you like it! I'd appreciate constructive comments. xx

Kimono Cover Up.

Trend Three.

Kimono's are a perfect cover up this summer whether for breezy evenings or to throw on over a bikini . A good substitute for the blazer that entered our wardrobes for spring.

Works perfectly for all occasions;

Work - Teamed with a pencil skirt or tailored trousers
Play - Nights out. One of the embelished and more glamorous kimonos would be the quickest way to update your style wardrobe especially when paired with this seasons LBD (little black dress)
Beach - A glamorous change from a simple throw over kaftan.
Day to Day - (My favourite look) denim shorts/trousers, simple vest tee, sandals finished off with a floral print kimono.
Maternity - Loose and comfortable, the perfect pregnancy buy.
