Hi all, sorry I have been away for so long, but i have a new project! ‘Nothing New, Only Borrowed’ is my monthly styling project using my own clothes as well as borrowing from friends. One of the great things about being at University is being able to exchange clothes, especially when money is tight. I hope this will offer an insight into our street style, as well as dipping into key trends for the next few months! First up is Project D – D for Dungarees in the beautiful Yorkshire sun that we have been enjoying – let me know what you think!
( Annie wears: Baseball cap; Asos, Rose gold hoop earrings; Topshop, Ribbed red cami; Subdued, Dungarees; Zara, Trainers; Adidas.)
Love this lace up coordinated number by Danielle from WeWoreWhat
The suns out and so are the barbecues – I am a huge fan of grilled vegetables, definitely makes them a bit more exciting! Here is a delicious recipe from Minimalist Baker for grilled corn and zucchini with sun dried tomato – dreamy, enjoy!
No doubt you have all seen this by now, but incase you haven’t I wanted to share possibly one of my favourite looks for summer so far! Model Karlie Kloss is wearing a checked two piece by Reformation. It is the perfect combination for when the hot weather hits – keeping you cool without wanting to wear as minimal clothes as possibile. I also love the neutral colour scheme but easily replicated in bold brights if you fancy.
Nothing makes me think more of Summer than the sight, smell and taste of lemons! Hence why I am in loovee with Dolce and Gabbana’s Summer Collection 2016. Modelled here by Shea Marie of Peace Love Shea. What’s you favourite Summer fruit?
The simplest and coolest way to turn your classic white shirt into an off the shoulder summer staple! Take a look at A pair and a spare diy – you will love the blog. Full of useful and easy DIY fashion tricks.
I am a huge fun of Lucy Parker’s foodie account on Instagram (Lucy and Lentils) – all her recipes are simple and perfectly replicable at home on your own. I also love how she photographs and displays her food – gorgeous!
I am a massive fan of light delicate jewellery, big bracelets or necklaces can really irritate me. So Winden‘s collection instantly attracted me! Such simple designs and I love their unique earring styles for multiple piercings. Likewise the rings and necklaces appear light and very ethereal. The only downside is you will have to save up before you buy, if not, anything from their collection would make a beautiful present.
I saw a super chic Milanese girl wearing her beige cap ( the right way round I might add) with a matching duster/trench coat, sunglasses and her hair in a neat bun! It was just such a simple, yet incredibly cool look that I totally wanted to copy it and I have just ordered my own cap. I used to wear them so much when I was younger and actually for the Summer months they are a good sun protection investment.
