Sleek & polished with a touch of bohemian glamour, Chloe fringed sandals and a Haight coral one piece scream summer 2017! (Above)


Unleash some serious wanderlust on the beach and beyond wearing popping pinks and dreamy violets! A hot pink Forever Unique swimsuit with bang on trend lace detail paired with a sharp yet comfy wrap skirt will sizzle along the seafront.  A 3.1 Philip Lim mauve Pashli may induce envy amongst fellow holiday makers!  Brights are excellent at amplifying a golden tan, too!


Serene block colours & simple accessories never go out of date.  Look sleek yet mysterious in a deep ocean Diane Von Furstenburg one piece and Prada block sandals, while a pastel pink Kenzo tote will stylishly hold your essentials whilst adding a touch of feminine simplicity.


Spring through the palms in a D&G tropical bikini and accessorize with the coolest lime green sandals from Prada and a pair of aviators!


Chillax poolside in the dreamiest blues.  One piece swimsuits are big news, and are modest enough to be worn with this summer’s wrap skirts for some stunning summer evening looks.  Arcadia have some irresistible swimsuits and I just love this aquatic looking skirt from Fausto Puglisi!


Clean Lines & Monochrome stripes in the form of the ultimate Marc Jacobs maxi equals instant Beach to bar chic! Don’t forget to add a touch of sparkle, these Giuseppe Zanotti kitten heels are perfection!

Slip into this celestial River swimwear and a pair of mirrored Ray-Bans and unlock that inner mermaid!

Transition this sea foam shimmer swimsuit from River Island from sitting at the sea side to sipping cocktails outside! Add a tropical print wrap skirt like this Missoni beauty and a cross body bag in a cool hue like this one from Jimmy Choo.  And these designer look platforms are a steal from ASOS!


Summer brights & pastels inspired by sweetest, juiciest seaside treats! Ruffled dresses like this Anna October maxi are fresh off the catwalk! Amp it up with a juicy clutch from Commes Des Garçons and a pop of watermelon gloss on nails and lips!


Maxi up a midsummer’s night in a floor length Melissa Obadash dress that’s just peachy. Bling up a plain dress with a choker, the hottest boho glam jewellery trend of SS17.  Be daring, add an unexpected accessory like Judith Leiber’s crystal encrusted beach ball clutch.

June is here, which officially means it’s the start of the summer. Exciting. Festival fever will soon be upon us, which means dropping those dull winter warmers in favour of some sizzling hot trends which ooze boho glamour.  

Taste the rainbow and get summer party ready in these succulent multicolour Sophia Webster sandals. These beauties are so irresistible they should really come with an envy warning!

Fluorescent pom-poms and tassels are big news and will take the festival fashion scene by storm this summer, be they on wedges or flats. An unlikely comeback that’s cool, colourful and a little eccentric, this trend is a festival in itself.


Block heels meet block colour, with plenty of ditzy tassel detailing, pom-poms and laces to add an element of Coachella cool. Not only are these Aquazzura offerings easy to walk in they tick every 2017 style box. Eye catching and comfortable, you really can have the best of both worlds!

Rebecca Minkoff’s relaxed yet vivid vibe is going right in my beach bag this summer!

Never underestimate the hidden powers of the Evil Eye…

  
 

Evil Eye Jewellery from Freedom at Topshop

Kim Kardashian is a massive believer in the protective forces of evil eye bracelets.

  

 

This hematite evil eye arm candy is from online handmade gift shop Etsy, it’s made a long journey from Illinois, Chicago to Wolverhampton and is my “head of security,” I rarely go without wearing it!
