And just like that our summer seems to be blown out of town by the ridiculous gales and downpours of a British weather system. Trying my hardest not to feel to glum about the turn of weather I’ve decided to be a proactive mama and seek out the best bits to brighten my week.
I’ll admit that I’ve never really invested in umbrellas (who can resist the £2 bargains as you walk into Primark) but I think it’s time to be a true grown up an invest in one that costs more than £10. I’ve searched out the totes XTRA STRONG Auto Open/Close Thin in black and it seems the prefect introduction to adulting -fingers crossed this banishes the drowned rat look!
Regardless of the weather bright nails are such a classic summer look and instantly lift your outfit (and your mood!) I’ve been doing my own gel nails at home for months now but I keep hearing great things about the CIATÉ London Mani Marker Nail Polish Pen – super simple and results that wow and last, the shade beauty queen is the perfect summer bright and will stylishly clash with almost outfit.
I would be a poor blogger if I didn’t at some point in 2017 mention the phenomenally successful launch of The Ordinary. Coverage Foundation – yes it sold over a quarter of a million units in its first week and will probably be forever out of stock but the reviews are so good that for a now I just have to have faith in the ‘e-mail me when back in stock’ button.
If you’ve been following my Instagram Stories you will have seen that I bought one of my wants from last week – the Adidas slides, and as predicted they are super comfy and I’m finding excuses to wear them with everything – being in the Adidas store on Oxford Street reminded me of two things: 1. I really am a mum, I described the guy who served me as young man! 2. I actually really like the clean lines and simplicity of the classic Adidas pieces so next stop on the return love in with Adidas is an Adidas Originals Boyfriend Trefoil print tee.
Leaving my urban style vibes behind, I’m giving all my love to this Selina Embroidered Dress from Whistles; it ticks all the boxes of effortless on trend style, and as silly as it sounds, it even looks super comfy!
I tried the Dune Abbigail in rose gold on a few weeks back and was amazed that me, Rosie the eternal trainer lover could actually walk in them! It takes a special heel to capture my heart (and walking ability) and the outlandish finish isn’t a hinderance to me – instead I like to think of them as a unique style investment 😉
I’m keeping with the metallic theme and finishing on a high the beauty that is the Mango Flowy Pleated Dress – available in black also, the metallic silver is calling me to pair it with white trainers and a denim jacket for the ultimate in off duty style when travelling and it would be perfect for showing ff a tan, it hasn’t taken much to convince me this is a need not a want…
