Hot blue

I love Summer, I love sunshine. It does bring it’s challenges though, I always automatically hate everything in my wardrobe and wish I had more light, airy clothing. That’s why I teamed a dress I normally reserve for nights out with a pair of tiny denim hotpants (just in case there was a sudden gust of wind) for a day roaming around my favourite haunts in Soho.

Dress – Dorothy Perkins, Shoes – Matalan, Headbands – Spitalfields, Stupid expression – all my ownTo be honest, the whole outfit was actually centered around me wanting to wear these floral headbands I bought in Spitalfields market a couple of months ago. I bought them on a rainy Sunday in the hopes of sunshine…I was rewarded for my optimism this past weekend. The blue one is my favourite but they look so cute together. I’m not sure if you can tell, but I had blue eyeliner on too, much more summery than black. 

Blue eyeliner – Prestige, Foundation – Mac, Blusher – Nars, Mascara – Max Factor

    The floral headbands are amazing. They look great with the white dress and so perfect for a summers day.
