Bright Lips and Monochome

Pink pout, pale pins and pretty petals – Summer is here, ladies and gents.

Summer arrived in the UK this weekend, so as the sun came out – so did the legs. Now, whilst I struggle with tanning (thank goodness for St Tropez) I just love the excuse to wear pretty dresses and secretly hope that one day my legs will be sun kissed naturally.

My go-to style is and always has been a skater-style dress, matched with a bold lip and accessorized with gold jewels. I fell for this pretty floral dress from H&M only a couple of days ago, and I’ve already worn it twice – once with leggings and sandals and today bare-legged.

I’ve been ruthless with my wardrobe recently, only keeping the clothes that I wear on a frequent basis and can mix and match with other items in my closet – quality wins over quantity. Dresses like these are so versatile, and as I am currently attempting the ‘minimalistic approach’ – I am (surprisingly) practicing what I preach.

On a final note – Happy Father’s Day to my wonderful Dad (I get all my brilliantly bad jokes from him!) πŸ™‚

Hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend!
