Sunshine Style

All this basking in the wonderful sunshine we've been having has reignited my relationship with pretty dresses. It feels like I've spent the whole of winter moping about in jeans (and the occasional skirt) and it feels nice to finally want to delve into the dress section of my wardrobe again. I haven't been quite ready for bare legs just yet, though - unless you count my little sunbathing sesh on the balcony of Alex's parents' flat!


 The fancy florals I've been sporting over the weekend:


(dress - c/o Republic, jacket - c/o Dorothy Perkins, sunglasses - Topshop, headscarf, bag, boots - Charity Shop)

(Literally as above, besides the dress - c/o Motel!)

In other news, I've been having fun with this awesome wig that Wonderland Wigs sent me (RRP £19.79)! It's a minty-turquoisey and super soft A-line bob (are people still calling them 'pobs'? Thought not...) If you're looking for a cute wig for fancy dress or just a fashion statement, Wonderland Wigs is definitely worth a browse! You can see my Katy Perry inspired look featuring my new wig over on the Republic blog


In even more other news, I finally joined Pinterest the other day! Woop! Add me if you fancy, and if you have Pinterest, leave a comment with a link so I can check out your boards! 

Have you been having fun in the sun where you are? Has the sunshine made you do a style u-turn?

  10. I'm toying with the idea of investing in a good wig to have for the odd night out. It looks like fun to pretend to be someone else!

    I'm on the oul' Pinterest as well, still getting to grips with it and not yet as obsessed as a lot of people seem to be though..

  17. You look beyond lovely in both of these dresses, definitely inspired me to sport a little summer dress tomorrow! Good to know I'm not the only one too scared to get the pasty's out, the dresses look just as brill with leggings and boots and a denim jacket!

  19. Welcome to Pinterest! Mine is at pinterest.com/cameronmiquelon/ for your convenience.

    I've never heard of the term "'pobs" before regarding your wig's hairstyle, but whatever works, I guess! I do love the colour of your wig, though. :)
