Have A Nice Day.

I *may* have bought this Marcus Lupfer tee for my Mum as a birthday present and stolen it to wear myself this morning. Ooops! There's just something about the neon pink sequins that screamed "wear me" this morning, plus it's always nice to tell strangers to "have a nice day" right? You can shop the full Marcus Lupfer at ASOS collection here. Speaking of ASOS, the fabulous people over at Appliances Online have given me the chance to offer one of my lovely readers an £80 ASOS voucher.

NEWS: Maria Francesca Pepe at

If I was a millionaire, I'm pretty sure every penny I had would be spent on jewels. There is no greater thing in my mind than jewellery (ok, maybe Ryan Gosling but since he's committed to Eva we'll leave that there). I'm not talking dainty jewels from Tiffany and Co. (although when I was eighteen I would have spoken differently) I'm talking big, bold statement pieces that really make people stare. One of my favourite jewellery designers Maria Francesca Pepe range is now available to buy on so next time you're downloading that book for your kindle, why not shop the jewellery section which stocks other designers such as Mawi, Dinny Hall and Tatty Devine?

Inspired by British avant-garde and realised by Italian artisans, Maria gains inspiration from the thriving artistic scene, which compliments her creativity and predisposition for art and music. I've chosen my personal favourites from the designer below - I absolutely love these rose gold pieces and think a purchase of the Cubin Zircon Earrings needs to be made asap.

Lapis Lazuli Heart Stone Ring £152

 Black Agate Cuff £170
Lapis Lazuli Pendant Necklace £162

Triangle Charm Earrings £70
Crystal Stud and Spike Ring £85

Another day, another slogan t-shirt. Today's is this 'HERO' tee from Own The Runway. How perfect is the mint for this gorgeous weather that's made an appearance recently? Be warned though - it's back to wind and rain come Friday so another two days of getting your legs out girls (please though - not the daisy dukes with your bum cheeks hanging out).

I've never shopped on Own The Runway before and was very kindly sent this t-shirt from the lovely people at Snow PR. Although most pieces only go up to a size 14, the oversized tops work well on a larger frame so definitely give them a try. I've got my eye on this next. May have to make a purchase and add it to my holiday wardrobe (which FYI is growing everyday!).

Project/D London for Simply Be

When I first heard Danni Minogue was collaborating on a range with Simply Be I was sceptical to what I might find. Turns out, I wasn't disappointed AT ALL. The collection of nine dresses, a shrug and two tunic tops is the brands first plus size collection. Danni's range received an incredible amount of press the first time around and it's great the designer is now branching into plus size fashion and what better way to collaborate than with Simply Be?

Myself and four other bloggers were asked to choose between the Liberty Dress and the Carnegie Strappy dress. I absolutely loved both. The Liberty dress is a gorgeous print of the New York skyline and the perfect summer evening dress, however I felt I could style the Carnegie a lot more. With my holiday coming up, this is going to be my go-to summer dress and is also perfect for the festival season. I opted for the white and added some really bright accessories and studded ankle boots.

I would suggest sizing up on this. Although there is an elasticated back the waist line is quite fitted due to the under skirt having no give at all. Although I love the dress bared legged, I do wish it was slightly longer. This falls just below my knees and I'm 5"8. I'm eager to try this as an evening dress too with wedges and blazer but to me if feels much more of a day dress and will definitely be coming on holiday with me!

Dress: Project/D London at Simply Be (gifted)
Leather Jacket: Simply Be
Ankle Boots: Topshop
Necklace: Accessorize
Rings: Accessorize and Topshop

China Print.

I'm becoming slightly obsessed with oversized sheer shirts at the moment. I purchased this beautiful china print shirt from Topshop a few weeks ago (or to use its correct name; toile). I then walked into Primark and saw an overload of toile print on dresses, skirts, tops and bought this beautiful sheer number below. I'm in love.

I realise I haven't even featured these A-MAZING Topshop cowboy boots before. I love the gold toe cap on the front and the berry tones. Beaut! They aren't online anymore but there's some similar ones here. And then there's the jeans. I'd been searching high and low for some ripped jeans and gave the New Look Inspire ones I go but they were just a bit too wide in the leg for me so ended up finding these babies on Very and a bargain at £22!

Céline (Dion)

I'm seriously loving all the novelty slogan tees that are around at the moment. You know me, sucker for a tee and an even bigger sucker for one with a slogan. I picked up this Céline copy from Etsy a week ago - a bargain at £7.99 and teamed it my BEAUTIFUL jacket from Monsoon.
