Call Me High

I adore high-waisted bikini's, I find them so flattering (and personally really good for hiding bits that I really want to hide). This is always my staple bikini shape, a few of mine from last summer are from ASOS, H&M and a few department stores. This season I love some of the prints on the catwalk have translated from the clothing onto the swimwear. From the staple palm and tropical prints, inverted colour matching coordinated prints and realistic florals. This makes for super eye-catching swimwear so much so, you'd be planning/dreaming of a year long summer holiday like me.

Call Me Apply

I love finding things that you have lurking around the back of your closet for a few years, especially when they're current pieces. This skirt is a favourite of mine; I picked it up in a market in Paris about 2 Summers ago for a steal at 10 Euros. The print is so cute and I adore the little button details on the front. Keeping in with the floral's I've layered on my amazing lace jacket from River Island with the gorgeous appliqué flower detailing. x

Call Me Lively

A while ago I posted about my love for Jessica Alba's style particularly when she wears Kenzo, and one of my favourite looks of hers was the amazing Kenzo yellow neoprene skirt she wore to the MTV movie awards. On my lust list is definitely a neoprene skirt of any kind in any colour. Below is another Kenzo skirt but in a shorter length and it is divine. I love the shape of the skirts and the fabric is so soft yet structured it is so wearable with also being a statement piece in itself. x

Call Me Lemonade

I am having such a label crush at the moment on For Love & Lemons. It's a line created by best friends Gillian Mahin and Laura Hall. The latest collection is a beautiful mesh of colours and textures with contrasts of pastels and bleached denim. The line always evokes a laid back and cute yet rebellious vibe and this collection does not disappoint. The pastels and denim are mixed around with ditsy florals and lace in lingerie like silhouettes and playful co-ords. The crochet and lace separates and dresses are my absolute favourites from the line and are also loved by some well known celebrities.

For Love & Lemons has been spotted on the likes of Vanessa Hudgens, Sophia Bush, Selena Gomez, the Kardashian/Jenner girls, Katy Perry and so many more. The pictures below are a few of my favourites from their 'Hot Texas Summer' Look-book and after seeing the images below it will become very evident why I adore this line. Now let's all get into the Summer groove and shop the collection here! x

Call Me Linked

 Head-chains have always been a little obsession of mine, maybe it stems from being a little girl and seeing pictures of my mum on her Indian wedding day wearing a super ornate and stunning gold head-chain with her wedding sari. I love how they've worked their way into peoples wardrobes and have turned into a little add on jewellery piece for laid back summer looks. 

I've got a few that I've bought from various places such as Forever 21 and Topshop but I thought I'd make one, and honestly it's one of the easiest jewellery pieces I've made and really inexpensive as I just used some odd bits of broken jewellery. See below for the DIY!
Just measure out from the top of your head in the centre to where you want it to end at the back of your head, and two even pieces at the side. (Where your head chain would be). I used some some yarn as it was easier to measure out the length I would need.

Using a wire cutter, cut your bits of chain to the length of the yarn you measured out.
Using jewellery pliers just use some jump-rings to link them together. These can be found at a craft shop however I got mine from eBay.
 And here is the finished piece! It's super easy and you can customise it to make a style of your choice, I decided on a little bit of pearl detail as I thought this would be a bit different to some of the head-chains in the shops! x

Call Me Collected

When the sun is out you can't go wrong with a long sheer kimono. I adore this one from Forever 21 with its cute earthy rose print and long shape. I kept in with a little hint of a boho vibe and accessorised with black leather boots and a black hat. x

Call Me Daydreamer

It's finally Summer in London and I hope this isn't just a short appearance. So all of this sunshine has me in the holiday mood (hopefully I'll be going to New York in August!) and on my wishlist is the staple bikini shape I love; the high-waisted 50's style and this gingham print one by River Island is absolute perfection on this silhouette. I love the pastel shades and nothing complements pastels like more pastels, some fresh white and florals! x

Call Me Mighty

Ever since the SS14 shows I've been obsessed with pastel anything, specifically pastel lace. I loved the mix of lace and polkadots from Burberry's show and that's were I got the influence for the look below. I'll definitely be mixing these prints and textures more! x

Call Me Zone

I have been girl-crushing on so much on Jessica Alba lately, from her flawless looks at Fashion Week to her amazing red carpet style. But I've been loving her even more when she's been sporting an ultimate favourite of mine - Kenzo. She looks incredible sporting the signature bright electric colours of the label, to the monochrome palm prints of the 2014 Resort collection, and let's not forget that amazing neoprene skirt from the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. Amazing. x

Call Me Funfair

So for those of you who don't know, I work in the fashion industry as part of the International Team at Oasis. Recently I got to go to the Oasis AW14 Press Day, it was an amazing Funfair themed event with displays on carousels and bumper cars and incredible food! The new collections are amazing, my favourites were beautiful winter pastel shades, coloured leather separates, and the conversational 70's style butterfly prints in co-ordinated accessories. Here are a few pictures from the day. x

And the delicious food!

 Not edible, but how cute is this knitted fish and chips, and the little hot dog!
Also have a look at Company Magazines pictures of the Press Day.
