Summertime Sadness (boo!)

I only titled the post because the weather seems to dictating that it’s nearly over and that’s a bit sad….sob! So as the A/W collections are dropping on the high street, I wanted to keep the sun shining and share another of my fave holiday evening looks. It’s cute and a little boho meets casual glam I think, depending on how you style it. I was aiming for the cute angle

I was unsure of what to do about the bra sitch due to the top half of the back being all lace, in the end I went for a nude bandeau as it blended well with my skin tone (but obviously still visible)

I tried something a bit different (well, for me) with my trusty Hair Rehab London bun. I keeping with the cute, laid back vibe I was attempting, I went for a low side loose messy bun with a few loose strays hanging out. For a first attempt it wasn’t bad but definitely room for improvement. If anyone has tips I’d be more than happy to hear them!

And as usual I went for my go-to nude block heel sandals by Dotty P which are ideal for navigating tricky holiday/night out terrain (being from Hull and having to negotiate the cobbled streets of the Old Town in the dark after a couple of lemonades, I know how valuable this is!) they also come in some gorgeous metallic shades for the new season that up the glamour ante which I’ll definitely be getting.
