Ice cream dreams


Cheers for shining, sun. It means us fashion bloggers can wear ice cream prints as well as eating actual ice creams, we can buy inflatable pool doughnuts whilst eating doughnuts...blow up flamingo drinks holders whilst.... you get the idea. Yep, I did buy a doughnut pool inflatable from ASOS as well as this Accessorize flamingo drinks holder BUT I'm off to Portugal on Monday with Graham so... justified? 



I can't wait for some sun. It'll be amazing to soak up some tropical rays at long last. The pink shoes were too glitzy and barbie bitch to resist, and the ice-cream print dress (worn as a crop) from Rare London is a little somethin' I bought last year and have been waiting (and waiting and waiting) to wear the hell out of. Add a denim dream skirt with gold buttons from River Island, some silver Topshop shades and flamingo ombre and work done, right? There was a dog running around while we took these shots but the owners were pretty cool, actually. Instead of stopping to stare, they kept apologising that it got in the shots: 'Lulu! Come here Lulu! You're not a model Lulu!' Way to put a dog down, though.



Just a quick thank you all so much to all of you for such kind, supportive words, especially in regards to my book. It can be pretty hard to keep up the faith sometimes, but your sweet support truly means everything to me. I'm excitedly working on another spin-off story, hopefully it won't be too long before I can once again publish a short segment on my blog. Looking forward to it!

Any summer holidays in the pipeline for you guys?

  4. Cute outfit! I love that you reworked a dress into a crop top. It just goes to show that with a little creativity you can do so much with less. Have fun on your trip!

  6. I'm in love with your whole outfit! You look absolutely gorgeous (as always) and so cute for summer. That ice cream print is just too good and it looks amazing with the white denim skirt and pink accessories. I really love your sunglasses from Topshop too, they're awesome! I'm currently searching for some new shades but there's far too many I want at the moment, mirrored ones like these beauties are my favourites. Also just want to say I really hope you have an incredible time in Portugal and you enjoy your holiday! Very jealous, especially over the thought of that Asos inflatable doughnut chillin in the pool. Have fun! Katie xx

  10. I adore this ice-cream dress! I love how you wore it as a crop top! Such a cute idea. I'm jealous that it is warmer there because it is still so cold here...even though it might not look like it in my pictures. haha

  16. Ab fab Sophie, really! Yet again such a doll and stunning look - you rock pink like no other! The ice-cream dress is the best, can't wait for it to pop up in other outfits - so original to pair it with a skirt to be worn as a top. Also how cute about the dog hehe, and nice that the owners were so cool - I hate it as well when people stop & stare. Also I wishlisted that inflatable dougnut, not that it's of use in Paris haha, but still, how cool? THank you for sharing this wonderful post Sophie, and I can't wait to read another one of your stores - hope it's coming online soon!

  25. I haven't been to Portugal before, but would love to visit sometime. I would love to visit West Africa over the summers if God permits.

  26. Hey Sophie! I hope you and your other half had an amazing time soaking up those rays in Portugal! I bet that inflatable doughnut got lots of use haha! You are looking ah-mazing hun! I really like how you've worn that ice-cream print dress as a crop top with the button up skirt. The skirt has such cute distressed details on the bottom of it too! And your pink ombre is looking super fresh and vibrant.

    You deserve every lovely word from your readers :) You are such a beautiful person inside and out! So excited to hear more about your book!

  27. This dress/top is AMAZING! Looks so so nice with the white button-through skirt. I have a denim one but will definitely have to invest in a white one for the summer, I bet I'll look great just for an easy look with flip flops.
