Today’s post is something a little different. I was recently contacted by Farfetch asking if I’d like to enter a blogger competition, the only condition of entry being that my post has to take inspiration from their summer 2016 blogger content pack. Firstly, I love Farfetch, and I decided I definitely wanted to take part, however not necessarily for the chance to win. Don’t get me wrong, of course I would be over the moon to win, however my main motivation for entering was more of a personal one. As a blogger (I hope I’m ok to officially call myself that now), I think it’s important to constantly keep learning and improving and bringing better content to my blog. I thought it would be quite an interesting challenge to actually look through the content pack and see how I interpreted it and what inspiration I took to translate into a blog post that all of you lovelies would enjoy reading.

Here in Manchester we were enjoying absolutely gorgeous weather; the sun was shining, the skies were blue, and it was pretty darn hot. Unfortunately it was short lived and the past 2 weeks have been miserable and full of rain. Luckily though I took some outfit photos before the weather took a turn for the worse. The blinding sun on this particular day did make it quite difficult, so apologies for the quality of some of these photos, but it’s an outfit that I love and had to share.

Mules are everywhere right now and I for one can’t get enough. They’re a massive footwear trend for this summer and I am down right loving them. Mules were all over the S/S16 runways, with designers giving us a new, youthful reinvention of this classic style. They’re the perfect, easy breezy summer shoe, a one stop style that can take you straight from day to night time.

There are like a bjillion pairs of mules that I want at the moment. Perhaps that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but there are definitely an awful lot that I’m in love with. The trusty UK high street has lots of different options when it comes to heel height, style, colours and fabrics, with most having a comfortable block heel. I’m basically obsessed with them. So, with that in mind, I thought I would share a selection of my favourites and the ones that I am seriously swooning over.

Today’s post is the final part of my 3 ways to wear a floral dress series (see part 1 here and part 2 here), and I’m not sure but I think I may have saved the best for last. I was positive that my first look was going to be my favourite, but now I’m not so sure. I wanted my final outfit to be an evening look and to show an edgier way to style a floral dress such as this one from Topshop. I don’t typically feature that many evening looks, so maybe that’s why I’m loving this one so darn much.

On Monday, I shared with you the first part of a series of posts I’m doing of 3 ways to wear a floral dress, which you can check out here if you haven’t already. Today I have part 2 for you, which is another of my favourite ways to wear floral summer dresses.

This look is a much more casual and daytime appropriate way to wear floral dresses in the spring and summer time, and it’s perhaps the more typical sartorial choice for a pretty dress like this. It’s still easy to keep it looking fresh and modern and make it right for you. The key part for me was adding a denim jacket, which is a must have for me for those chillier days at this time of year. My usual denim jacket is a couple of years old now and has been worn so much that it was looking a bit too tattered, and not in the good way. I felt like I needed a new one this year, so for the past few weeks I’ve been on the lookout for an affordable replacement. I spotted this gorgeous cropped style recently in H&M and it was exactly what I was after, and a bargain at £19.99. I went for it in a light blue denim, but they also have it in a mid-blue as well. Just chucking on a denim jacket over any outfit can transform it into a more casual and laidback look.
