And what do we have here then? A sunny day in April? Hell yes we do! Such a perfect opportunity to get a few snaps of my newest faves that I want to share with you all.
I am so in love with this powder blue dress from New Look. My mum got married in a dress quite similar and I have been on the hunt for something this colour for years and years. The shape of the dress is super shifty, light and makes me want to twirl around in it all day.
The detail over the midriff area is perfect for someone like me who is not totally OK with getting their tummies right out. I have never really thought that look suited me but with the fabric slightly cut out I feel like I am giving it ago without flaunting everything.
What do you need to top off this super summer outfit? A pair of sunnies for good measure of course.
Boots are relaunching some absolute beauties this season, so you can protect those peepers with some amazing brands such as Ray Ban, Guess and Serengeti to name a few.
These Polaroid Havana Sunglasses* landed on my doorstep and it was love at first sight. I am a little funny when it comes to shade shapes and sizes as my little pea head does not really pull off many styles but these are a perfect fit for my tiny tiny head.
I am a huge fan of tortoiseshell and with these retro shaped round frames I am literally in love. They keep me nice and protected from the sun's shiny rays, providing me with 100% UV400 protection which means out with the old zero protection sunnies and in with these new beauties.
I can feel a retro vibe hitting our summers in one swift sunglasses swoop. I think it is time to dust off my Polaroid camera from the depths of my garage and create some memories wearing a pair of Polaroids don't you think?
Make sure you take a peek at what Boots have to offer on their designer sunglasses range as you may be pleasantly surprised. There is currently 15% off when you spend £85 or more so go grab yourself a summer bargain.
I have far too many big bags that I just sling over my shoulder, full of dirty tea towels, dog biscuits and snot rags but sometime us ladies just need a small purse to pop in the essentials.
This Mini Purse Bag* from Joe Browns is perfect for just that. I love the length of the chain as I can wear it over my shoulder or right across my body if I want to make it a little more secure.
I can fit my phone, keys and a little purse in here easy peasy.
It really does have that Mulberry Mini Lily look about it and for 1/10th of the price it would be rude not to.
I have the month of May packed with so much excitement I feel like I want to squeal. I can't wait for lighter nights, ice creams by the beach and oh, that wedding I am planning for.
What are your summer staples? I would love to know what you guys like to get up to in the sunnier months.
Hope you have all have a great week.
Love Carli x
