Trend: White Leather
Winter’s out, and with it our wintry leather jackets and trousers (for the time being anyway). But if you’re desperate to keep the monochrome going, summer’s brought it’s own alternative in the form of white leather. A light winter jacket, or an edgy pair of sandals, this is a trend to be get in on.

I finish exams on Thursday, so will be present again from then!
I’ll get round to answering all questions then, and hopefully get going on some new posts! X
Shameless Self Promotion
For those that know me well, you’ll know that I make my own jewellery. Thus in order to rack up and extra bit of cash I’ve started selling some pieces on the app Depop. If you’re interested, my username is savannahzoe!
Trend Update: Kimonos
Replacing the denim jacket, kaftan or that oversized t-shirt of your dad’s that’s encrusted with sand and salt water this summer: the kimono. Having been creeping in for a few years now, the kimono has well and truly made it. The perfect boho summer cover up, for a bit of sun shelter on the beach, that outfit-making layer that isn’t sweltering hot or a cool evening jacket, you kind of need one of these in your wardrobe.

Making a quick stop off to say sorry for my absence! Exam season is in full swing, so I’m going to be pretty dead for another month or so folks - please bare with me though, I will be back!

Spot the Difference: Three Floor ‘Back to Black’ Dress
A stunningly classic and elegant dress, Three Floor’s ‘Back to Black’ dress is perfect for any classy event - but not so perfect for those of us with a tight budget. If you’re short on pennies, try instead H&M’s inspired dress for just £39.99
Trend Update: Gingham
Little Bo Peep, à la Spring/Summer 2014. Put away the tartans, checks and dogtooth patterns, for the queen of all classic prints is back: Gingham. Worn as a simple accessory or a full blown outfit, this monochrome print is perfectly bold and quirky.
Trousers: Topshop, £25
Off Shoulder Crop: Motel, £22
Skirt: Topshop, £36
Glasses: Moda Operandi, £165
Tights: Topshop, £8.50

My A Level exams are rapidly approaching, so in order for me to keep posting I could really do with some help!
If you have any outfit questions, requests for specific posts or anything then send me a line or two!
Beauty: Kiko Cosmetics Haul
I recently spent a couple of days in the beautiful Italian city of Florence on an Art trip, and inbetween the galleries and church visits, managed to find a little bit of time for some retail therapy - Italian style, at Kiko cosmetics.
In case you haven’t heard of Kiko, it’s an Italian makeup brand, with a huge range of stuff at really reasonable prices. To give you an idea - I managed to pick up all these nail varnishes (up there ^) for €1 each. Though these were on special offer, even the non-reduced prices are fabulous.
My nail colours for this summer, ranging from earthy tones to warm reds and cool blues.
Colours: On A Lilac Cloud
I’m not usually one for pastel colours, but there’s something about the grandma in lilac that has made me rather fond of this popular new spring shade. Splattered across the SS14 shows, (particularly Burberry), lilacs and lavenders seem to be the sweet pick of the moment.
