The New Kimono Update | 3 Trends to Wear this Summer

I love kimonos! 

They are a summer style staple of mine as they are so easy to throw on over a bikini or jeans and a cami.
I just finished making a new kimono this week using this gorgeous oriental, floral fabric and it made me realise just how versatile the kimono really is! I have made a few now and different fabrics makes each one a little unique as well as suiting lots of trends and style. 

So here is a little guide on the top kimono trends and prints for this summer and three ways to wear.

Two Ways to Wear | Oversized White Shirt | OOTD

Oversized shirts are one of those summer classics that come out each year and never get old. I have been looking for a big white silky one for a while as I felt it would be so versatile and easy to wear whether on the beach or out for the day. I found this floaty blouse on Asos a few weeks back and wear it pretty much everywhere. It's casual, loose-fitting style means I can throw it on over a top and jeans but it is also long enough to work as a light summer dress when buttoned up.

 I love that I can style it in a few different ways, so I thought I would show you how I would wear my oversized shirt in two different ways...

Lifestyle | 26 Things Before I am 26...

I have wanted to write a post like this for a while and I have been feeling a little pensive at the moment so felt it was the right time. I am turning 25 in three months and some really exciting things are happening in my life at the moment, so instead of doing 25 things before I am 25, as I thought this was a little too soon, I've decided to give myself just over a year to complete some personal goals. By documenting them here I can reflect next year how far I have come as well as giving me a little motivation to complete them. Your twenties is a time when you can still be a little bit selfish and crazy, so feel like its a great way to make sure I do things I have always wanted to do. 
There's no particular order to the list just as I think of things...

Trends | White & Laced

Ok, this trend might not be the most suitable for the fields of Glasto but nothing compliments a summer-holiday tan more than a gorgeous white lacey dress, and this year the high street is teeming with them. 
I love this trend as it's a little bit girly & cutesy but with a hippie/boho edge to it. Dress a simple lace dress up with either lace up gladiators or killer heels for a night out, then a fedora and 70’s inspired boots for the day. Go for off the shoulder with lots of wrist accessories for that extra on trend bohemian look.

Here are my picks of the best high street buys and some Pinterest inspo that will make you long for anything floaty and laced to dance about at sunset in.
