HOLY MOLY! Dune is killing it with their shoe game at the moment. I saw these dupes on their website and it was love at first sight. They're open enough for some ventilation for your feet but closed enough to feel like a shoe, so that you don't have to worry about having perfectly pedicured feet or chipped nail polish, and you definitely need not worry about that one toe nail that always grows really strange and wonky. Basically the perfect summer flats for those of us who have nightmares about all the toes that are out during the summer time. Myself included. Although I usually just worry about my own toes (my best friend will be falling off her bed with laughter at this point). Either way, I think they're a pretty close match to the Valentino ones and will essentially give the same effect. Not to mention, you'll still be able to have your dinner for the rest of the month and will sleep like a baby knowing that your toes are safe and sound from the rest of the world, until boots are safe to wear again.

And if that's not the most legit reason to buy shoes, then I don't know what is.

maxi shirt

H&M trousers and tank / New Look maxi shirt


I love wearing my button up shirts open over a plain tank or tee, so I thought why not do the same thing with this maxi shirt dress. I have a couple of them and its always good to wear things in different ways, so you get more use out of it. Here I threw it over loose trousers and a tank and I really like how it adds some movement and a sheer layer to the look. Plus, it makes me feel super fancy floating around the house with my maxi-tunic-shirt-cape thingy bob flowing behind me like I'm in my mansion in Morocco.

Sporty vibes

ASOS trousers / River Island top
So I was supposed to return these trousers way over 2 months ago but somehow they managed to hide themselves under a sea of blue jeans and trousers, which meant that I totally forgot about them and now it's too late to return. Grrr. The only consolation I have is that they were super cheap in the sale anyway, not sure about the exact price but under £10 for sure, and I like to get my moneys worth so I'm gonna wear em anyway. Not sure why I didn't like them the first time round, but they're actually not too bad, and quite comfy. I just wore a button up blouse, the biggest peace sign hoops I could find and converse, because I really don't have any other summer time shoe.. I really don't. No honestly I don't.   

Ok, enough with the judge-y eyebrow raise.

Bow tie up

So I was recently browsing (read: stalking daily) the asos website and came across a bunch of new bow ties in a bunch of different colours, materials and shapes. And no, I wasn't browsing the dudes section! I think most of us relate bow ties to old men, super sophisticated black and white parties or your high school prom, but no more. Well they might still be associated with those, but now, they will be the game changing accessory that completely transforms a plain old button up to a Saint Laurent approved outfit.  It's definitely a statement, so for the less bold among us, I think the more slouchy bows are the way to go, rather than the full on structured bow! I'm sure you could even DIY it if you were crafty like that, but if not they're super cheap anyway. Snap some up before I buy em all!

Most of them were styled simply over a white button up and I think the more colourful ones will look chic popping under a jumper, in the autumn time, paired with an oversized floppy hat.

H&M trousers, tank and gilet / ASOS hat


I really need to stop wearing layers in this heat but, I always feel like my outfit isn't complete until I throw on a little something on top.
