Rhinestone Rock











Dress: Boohoo
Shades: Boohoo
Sandals: Zara 
Bag: Topshop 


Hands up who's still Coachella crushin'? I know summer is simultaneous for boho, but I never think that's a bad thing. Bohemian vibes are the best damn vibes after all! One of my favourite summer staples is this bright overpowering print dress.  I sort of hate it but love it at the same time if that makes sense. But it's my Zara rhinestone studded glittery sandals I really love, my favourite shoes. 

I wish Zara would make more glittery beauts like these. I have them in nude too (a Parisian security  bloke hauled me aside once when I bought said blue sandals because he thought I'd stolen the identical nude ones I was wearing that day... was seriously freaked at having to spend the night in a French prison...yo sir, I'm just crushing on Zara) I first fell in love with them when Karen posted this  pic on her Instagram many moons ago. When I saw they weren't designer BAM! Obsession ON. 

In other news I think it's pretty cool that Lily Melrose is writing a book! I've admired and respected Lily and her blog for years and I think if anyone is in a position to give valuable advice, thought, perspective and vision on blogging and all it entails, she most definitely is. A lot of mainstream bloggers/vloggers with books out seem to be overly manufactured and commercialised whereas I've always found Lily to be just as popular but tons more relatable. Hers is one blogger book I'm definitely going to be hitting up. 


Are you still crushing on Coachella? 
What trends are you loving this summer?

Insta-April

With the wish of including more variety on my blog; beauty, home, lifestyle, topical, music, books, reviews, writing segments, (here's hoping, yano how bad I am at posting); I thought I'd approach April with another theme I've been thinking of including on soinspo: life through an Instagram lens.

Up until last Spring I never had IG, but after Boohoo featured me on their feed; here and hereI knew it was time to get involved! Talking of Boohoo if you caught Butterfly you'll know I'm already feeling the chill vibes of summer by rocking the maxi and crop combo! Hoping for more dazzle days like that. I really loved shooting, editing and creating that post even if the SS15 transit was a bit early ;)
