Motel Rocks beach blocks








In LOVE with all of Motel Rocks' late summer stock, especially their Elephant Parade line,  my god believe me it's all gorgeous. Ready to replace our non-existent hotness with a blast of safari. As soon as I saw it I fell in love and promptly ordered this dress like BAM. These photos were shot in my favourite beachy location on Monday. By some miracle we managed to snap in sun for half an hour, the rainfall that had been raging all day then re-started shortly afterwards. You can also see me bitching about the British weather in my Instagram video, here.  Couldn't help doing a rather stylish litter patrol with Skinny-dip London as their pesky orange juice cartons kept circling round the shore. 

Know it's off topic but has anyone seen Inside Man? It's such a top film, one that gets you thinking for so long afterwards. Clive Owen is such a badass in it, and yes, Spike Lee is director *applause*. So many twists and turns and a plot that gets you confused, spaced-out and wondering if you watched right. Definitely worthwhile if you haven't seen already, and if you do see let me know your thoughts. If you don't like it of course, then I don't want to know your thoughts. Joke.... 

Back to Motel Rocks rocking the beach blocks, I've got to mention that I currently caved on a cactus top, and am weighing up whether to buy ALL the elephant epicness (yes, still going on about it). In true Soph style I set some peachy orange ombre against the tone of the dress. Unfortunately it wasn't as bold as I hoped but it's all trial and error. Kevin Murphy was all over my legs (minds out the gutter) with the colour bug I used; it looked like I'd fake tanned (hell no, maybe on the twelfth of bloody never). I've bought a green lipstick now, so maybe green ombre can be my next move? Whilst wearing the cactus top, course.

  6. Oh my gosh, elephants are my favorite animals! I might need some of these items too. It makes me sad whenever I see news about elephant poaching. :( I think that might be why I love elephant decor and clothing. Good for you on cleaning up the beach too. Yum, orange juice.

  8. Girrrrrl, you are on fire! Those ombre inferno tones look so holiday ready I want to pack my suitcase and fly off to the tropics asap. Visit some elephants marching off into the sunset upon that stunning dress. These photos are so perfect - looks like the weather behaved just for you in that gorgeous setting <3
    I am almost scared to check Motel Rocks in case I go on a pre uni 'I obviously need that' clothes buying binge. May also pretend I have a cold to justify purchasing that orange juice skinny dip bag, I hear vitamin c helps?
    Sad to say I haven't seen Inside Man, so will be 100% reserved for my 'must stream' list. Adore a good movie that leaves me puzzled afterwards + Spike Lee makes it appeal even more...

  9. Oh wow, I actually really love the orange ombre Soph! It's so subtle but so fun at the same time. I'm loving this dress, the print is just so gorgeous (who doesn't love elephants? hello!). The shoes are super cute too, another stunning look! ;) <3

  10. omigod i got so confused because i thought the orange juice bag was a purse, then i read further down and was like wait is it an actual carton?? i had to google it haha. so i can now safely say that i like your clutch/bag and that it goes great with your elephants and new hair color

  11. The elephant epicness looks epic on you dear, so just go for it and buy the entire collection :D Such a cool print, it seems like it was made for you as it suits you so well! Love the fancy litter bag too, as you put it so delicately ;) Best litter patrol I've ever spotted for sure, and the most fashionable for sure. Also I haven't seen that movie yet but I really want to do so soon! Thanks for reminding me!

  19. That dress is sooo pretty and it looks so good on you! I think I have to check out Motel Rocks right away. Your ombré hair looks really nice with the dress! I have actually thought about trying a color bug, but I'm just not sure how it'll turn out in my very dark hair :/ I'll have to find out one day, haha!

  22. My gosh Sophie, you are so beautiful and I saw your comment on Facebook about that uneducated, narrow-minde person, and they clearly don't know how wonderful you are.
    I love the elephant loveliness and the orange ombre, I'm totally going to get some hair chalks and experiment with colour on the ends of my hair. I'm hopefully back blogging as I moved and eventualy found my camera. I will have to figure out being my own photograper for a while, but it's time to get into it again.
    I have been catching up on all things Sophie and you are just looking so happy and radient. It's so good to see.
    Love you Hun!!

  23. Hi, hi Sophie! What can I say about this outfit that you don't know yet huh? I think you look gorgeous on it, and what really draw my attention was that cool bag! How original is that?! I like Skinnydip London - usually all their stuff is top quality and very original.

    On a side note, I haven't watched Inside Man but I'll check it out because it looks interesting. I'm a sucker for films and today is the perfect weather for them here xxx

  25. I am in love with this dress too! How cool do the elephants look? And the colour suits you so well, I love how you accessorize everything so well with every outfit you wear, from the hair, lips and shoes. So damn cool! You really have a way with fashion :D I love this beachy location you have near you, it's the perfect backdrop for your shoots. It would be so cool if Wolver-bloody-hampton had the same location! I might have to create my own beach in my back garden haha ;)
