Feeling hella love for this MinkPink Suns Out crochet halter neck top (try saying that three timesss after a rum and coke) that I treasure-troved via asos. So summery and snap-upable. Instantly fell in lust with it and knew it would make my summer stylin' that bit more dreamy. The New Look crochet salsa shorts made for the perfect pairing and I'm over the moon with the Temerity Jones disco ball. Didn't really need a disco ball but as a fashion blogger I'm allowed to justify it (sure thing, see? Done). Wedges aren't usually my scene but these Talia sandals also from asos were the perfect blend of compromise, fuelled with a pretty holographic gold vibe. And last but not least, show-stopping shades from Dolls Kill, remember those sugary sweet bracelets as a 90s kid? Yeah those.
I'm really happy with the desert vibes going on, as you know I'm a summer girl at heart and I think this has to be one of my favourite looks ever, aside from the whole A UFO Landed in my Pool! Trip. I'm getting really into liquid gold hues and feels; the gold shimmery body oil I slathered myself in for this shoot was a start, at least. Anything a bit glowy and shimmery and gold gets my vote.
I talked about my decision to quit my job here and it turned out to be even more of an emotional rollercoaster than anticipated in the end. I was overcome with upset, a little heartbreak and a mix of relief, sadness, highs and lows. A bit of shock too, as I ended up leaving a little earlier than planned, which, although best, was still quite overwhelming and I couldn't get my head round a lot of it, still can't. Despite a few issues towards the end it was a job I had loved once upon a time, the only place to work that's ever felt like home, and silver linings and pots of gold have come thick and fast in meeting so many good, decent people full of support and kindness. Something I can't say I've ever really experienced in the workplace before. It was nice to finally feel accepted for who I am, my visions and my direction. I've met some lifelong friends, not something I could ever have imagined last year when those glass doors looked so intimidating and the office behind it more-so. Graham often says it's usually the people that make a job, and for once I understand what he means.
Well, that's it for now folks. I'll definitely be back sooner rather than later this time (promise you, promise you!) Ideas are trickling in for a few more personal posts, as I feel that the blog -once so open and honest - is now lacking in that department a little. It'll be nice to be posting more content on a regular basis, as it will be to open up and get chatting about a few more topics and switch-up between fashion every now and then. Besides that, I'm looking forward to broadcasting some further tropical looks, hopefully you'll enjoy them as much as we enjoyed shooting 'em. Can't wait; be sure to bring Piña Colada's along, and suntan cream.
P.S Happy #NationalRumDay!
