Sparkly Crystal Wreath Choker statement necklace

One of my new favourite necklaces at the moment is this super sparkly crystal wreath choker necklace! Initially it might seem like quite a fancy piece that needs to be worn with an evening dress or ball gown, but I actually really like dressing it down with a t-shirt or jumper for a more casual look. Or just add it to any simple little dress, like this floral number for some added oomph to your look. It’s so elegant and fun for day or night.

Secrets to Summer Confidence!

Even though it feels like summer has already finished in London I am seriously hoping that we’ll still get some hot and sunny weather for the next few weeks before autumn officially arrives. SimplyBe is currently running a campaign about ‘summer confidence’ and how to feel fab when at the beach or soaking up the rays by the pool. They did a survey in the UK and found for example that 70% of women feel self-conscious about their tummy whilst on holiday, and 18% of women admitted to crash dieting and doing extra exercise prior to their break. Something we all can relate to right? Below are some interesting statistics and tips on how to feel confident and fabulous this summer.

The theme behind the info-graphic is summer holiday confidence. The tips cover swimwear, beauty and lifestyle as well as providing statistical insights into women’s holiday confidence. At Simply Be, we believe that every woman should love their body just the way it is; these secrets give advice on how to feel fantastic on and off the beach. The data, which was gathered from a survey of 1000 UK women, provides added information on how women feel on holiday in terms of body confidence and the measures they take to make themselves feel more confident.

Have you still got a beach/summer holidays planned this summer? I don’t unfortunately so am crossing my fingers and toes that there are still some summer days to come in London as my Turkey holiday tan is fading fast…

Bailey Nelson – Wallace Tortoiseshell Sunglasses

Remember me talking about my visit to Bailey Nelson a few weeks ago to look for some new sunglasses? You can read that post here. Anyway, have to say I am loving the ones I picked, the Bailey Nelson Wallace Tortoiseshell sunglasses. They pretty much did not leave my face while in Turkey!

I also think it’s great that all of Bailey Nelson’s sunglasses come with polarised lenses. It really makes a huge difference for your eyes and reduces reflections and eliminates glare.

Not a bad view right? This was while sunbathing at the sun deck at the Kempinski Hotel in Bodrum which was a few days of ultimate luxury. So relaxing :) Do you like my new Wallace tortoiseshell sunglasses?

Silver Bar Necklace

I love a statement necklace but sometimes a delicate piece is just as gorgeous! I love my new silver bar necklace with a slight curve by Maison Miru. A necklace like this can really be worn with any outfit, for any occasion.

I love it when wearing a shirt like this or something with a lower neckline. A bar necklace looks great on its own but also looks fab when layered with other longer and/or shorter delicate necklaces. Do you like this kind of simple but elegant necklace?

Leopard Sneakers

Slip on printed sneakers are the ideal summer shoe trend because they are comfortable and stylish. For a little while I’d been on the lookout for some leopard sneakers and I finally found the perfect ones at ASOS, and for only £20! These leopard Dockland Plimsolls (link) are such a fun accessory to accompany many outfits.

I could go on and on about how to style them but here some quick ideas; think (distressed) jeans and a crisp white shirt // black leather skirt and black top // a little white tunic dress // your favourite denim shirt and red jeans // bright shades like orange go great with leopard print // but also more neutral toned shades like camel or olive green // an all black outfit, or even being more of a rebel and mixing it with other prints. Like combining leopard print with stripes! Here a recent outfit of the day with my new ASOS Leopard Sneakers.

The ASOS Docklands Plimsolls are also available in other prints, like grid, floral or check, see full range here. Which ones do you like?
