I’m a huge advocate of midi dresses – perhaps because of their elegance in comparison to shorter dresses. A printed midi dress is a wardrobe staple for summer, and this one from Warehouse is a particular favourite of mine. Styled on its own with some black heels, or even some matching statement heels if you’re feeling daring, provides an effortless look for both day and night.
Give it a go!

Max Frost’s ‘White Lies’ is one of my ultimate feel good tracks. It’s the song I put on when I’m in a slightly hyper mood or when I’m just having an awesome day for no apparent reason. It’s the perfect track for summer when the sun is beaming and you’re hanging out with friends, having a BBQ and a few drinks.
Have a listen…
I had a close look at a pair of Holster sandals recently and I love them. Plus, Fearne Cotton wears them and I really admire Fearne, so that could be part of it. Regardless, these sandals are vegan friendly and recyclable, getting the green thumbs up. At just £44, they’re affordable and, from what I can see, well worth the money. Plus, I love the stud detailing on the strap and the range of colours. That being said, I do have to be a bit dull and say that the black sandals are definitely my favourite!
Which pair would you buy?
You can purchase these sandals through the Holster e-shop.

What can I say? I’d be crazy not to adore this Phillip Lim skirt – it’s floral AND metallic! Two things I can’t get enough off this summer. Pair this with a white blouse (tucked in, of course) and some sandals, and you have yourself a beautiful, slightly edgy summer ensemble. Perfect if you demand effortless style when popping out for a spot of lunch with the girls!

I was a little bit delighted when I received the press release for STORM’s new Zentrek watch. It’s a little more bulky and casual than watches I usually like, but it has a nice summer feel, so there’s no doubt it’s current.
Available in both a matte and polished finish, STORM have given you choice with this style, which I really appreciate – and I’m sure you do, too. Plus, it’s available in both blue and black.
Practical with its 24 hour features and STORM’s signature lazer glass, ensuring longevity, the Zentrek is definitely a style to consider buying this summer.

Zuhair Murad’s Autumn/Winter 2014 couture collection is a great mix of colour and monochrome, and perfect if you love beautiful evening gowns that are, without doubt, red carpet-worthy. Figure-hugging and a great mix of off and on-the-shoulder, this is exactly what I expect a couture collection to look like. Plus, it’s really wearable, which I just love!

If I’ve had a stressful day, coming in, making coffee and collapsing on my bed to listen to European indie folk band Daughter is the perfect cure. ‘Youth’ is a particular favourite of mine, which is why I chose it for this week’s ‘Music Monday’…
Last week, the lovely people over at Paradigma Footwear sent me these beautiful shoes. Firstly, I adored them simply because they are handmade in Portugal. Secondly, I realised I loved everything else about them, too. They’re versatile and INCREDIBLY comfy, which is really, really important to me. I’m not someone who’ll wear a pair of shoes that hurt just because they look good. That’s not fashion; that’s stupidity.
I figured I’d most probably pair these with a navy suit for a stylish work look in the office, but then throw them on with a pair of navy chinos and a white or pastel blue shirt for a slightly more relaxed day look when I’m just pottering about with friends.
