As you might be aware, i am OBSESSED with kimonos. To me they are essential; perfect      for layering, versatile for all seasons and who wouldn't want to feel like a bohemian princess. Originally i bought this 70's duster to customised and be a part of my collection 'Frolicking with Clementine', but i am finding it really hard to part with; i've styled it up with most of my wardrobe and as my saying goes 'if an item goes with 60% of your wardrobe, it's a keeper'.  I couldn't resist  taking it out and photographing, the colours are amazing and it was so fun catching the wind; Luckily i was able to get some windswept shots. I love mixing old and new when it comes to styling vintage; I'm wearing a very girl embroidered lace effect playsuit from one of my favourite brands; Hearts & Bows. The detail is just dreamy and very flattering one, It's what i would call a day playsuit; a perfect length. 

Mixing patterns with this cute Little Hill People hand woven clutch. This little gem has an amazing background; It's made from a winter sarong which is worn by the Garo women of Northeast India. I am completely in love with every item on their website, anyone who's into hippy fashion, Little hill people do not disappoint. There's a lovely section written online about the company i would like to share...

"When you buy from the Little Hill People, youll be getting so much more than one of their culturally infused, contemporary designed handmade bags. Each piece supports the contributions of the Indian tribal artisans. So not only will you look amazing wearing a gorgeous bead or bamboo piece, youll be empowering the artists and bettering their lives. Knowing that your purchase is providing a safe working environment and stable income, means fashion has never looked or felt so good".

Today i am rocking the most amazing tapestry biker jacket, it's one of those pieces that goes with everything. I was completely spoilt for choice on the Yumi website; lots of bold prints, girly shapes and vintage inspired items for the new Autumn/winter collection - with the lovely Lilah Parsons being the new face of. But being a huge floral fan, it would be a sin to choose anything else but the bold blooms biker to style.

Not wanting to let the summer go, I've styled the biker with a delicate lace playsuit and tassel ankle booties creating a gypsy feel. I love mixing textures in my outfit; especially with such a busy patterned statement piece, with a rainbow of muted colour. The jacket is a perfect piece for all seasons, i got mine oversized for the winter layering. I've pulled the green out in the jacket by styling it with a moss green fedora, the two just go hand in hand.

Farewell Summer

Is it sad that i'm so excited to pack my suitcase? I mean we have nothing booked yet, just a rough idea when we would like to go away, we ain't that organised to know where. My boyfriend keeps saying somewhere hot, he means desert hot, HOT and for a girl who has very pale skin all year round, this is a huge problem. Honest to god, my favourite part of my holiday is planning my outfits, decided which 7(or 14) bikinis i want to take and most of all packing. I do like to take my very favourites of things but i'm so frantic when we land that my suitcase will definitely be there. It's like a horror story; for a fashion blogger or a fashion fanatic, to hear about peoples suitcases going missing or even stolen! I would cry. Yes i am very dramatic but i couldn't think of anything worse having to go out and replace holiday outfits. I seriously hope i haven't jinx it (touch wood, touch wood!) I will be taking this outfit for sure.

I felt like a Boho princess in this dress. I love how it cuts away at the sides and its a lovely flattering shape on. Its a long cut dress so you'll be able to wear heels and it will still keep they shape. I went for flats, i like the way it hits the ground and having to hold it as you walk. I've never had a pair of shoes so comfy as these! Don't be fooled by their sole being so thin, i walked around in these all day and my feet felt great.

Living in the north east of england, we don't get much of a summer. I'm pretty excited that i will be extending my summer by relaxing by the pool in september - ish. I've been pale for so long, so i can't wait to get a summer glow.

Summer Sun

Top - ℅ Oasap / / Fedora & Kimono - ℅ Missguided / / Shorts - Coal n Terry Vintage / / Sunglasses - ℅ ZeroUV

A little bit of accidental matching, With the quaint embroidery on the Kimono and floral pattern on the chiffon floaty vest. I liked the criss cross straps on this floaty number, i also like the layered effect; it gives a little vintage summer effect. I do think it would look a bit better if it was oversized, maybe i should have bough the size up?
As you all know i really struggle when it comes to buying tops! I just don't know what it is but whenever i go out with the mind set 'i must buy tops' i always find something more exciting to purchase. My t-shirt, vests & tops struggle, i can never find: A an exciting shape or cut, B a great pattern or print or C that top i'm just in love with. If anyone can advise me where i'm going wrong or know any store i might like then please direct me to them, Mucho appreciated!!

I've tried to keep the styling simple but just couldn't resist a red lip, it instantly jazzes up your look. I always feel too fussy in the sunshine and can never be bothered with jewellery, just a simple Bee pendant was enough.
