Slightly late summer outfit post here, I decided to come back home up North for a few weeks and what did I do, yes I left my laptop at home. Soooo I kind had to had to wait around until I could grab someone else’s.

Remember those days, when we had the sun shining and the warm temperatures, where you would simply walk out in a t-shirt and complain about it being too hot? Yeah it seems like a while ago, especially now that were plagued with rain, more rain and guess what, yes more rain! The joy! I don’t know if it’s the same down south, but up north it is definitely grey and miserable!

Just looking through these few pictures, makes me want to cry and so desperately want to go back to the few weeks of summer we did have, I miss wearing sandals, eating watermelons and dining in the garden!

Enjoy probably the last summer post; you’re not going to see one for another whole year.

Considering we live in one of the most weather challenged countries in the world, it’s always a nice surprise when finally we are graced with a few weeks of the summer sun.

The trends this summer aren’t as daring as the past few summers, now that the designers have caught up on the reality behind the British summer, and how abruptly our weather can change during the day. Go out looking like a Greek goddess, come back looking like a windswept, haggard nightmare!

Not saying this summer, its still not about the strappy dresses, denim shorts and kimonos, because it is, however it’s supplied with a good dosage of lightweight outerwear, to help aid us during the day.

During the day I’m all for denim shorts and strappy tops, but in the evening with the cool breeze and the fading sun, I prefer something a little warmer. Pairing these printed trousers alongside a simple print t-shirt and brocade like lightweight jacket, leaves me feeling cool enough for the warm evening.

Dress – H&M

Today’s outfit of the day post is all about this white lace dress, it’s a simple dress with the top half covered in lace and the skirt is full and flowing.  It’s such a delicate dress and SO pretty. When I put it on I instantly felt like I was running around in sunny Narnia!  The dress was at a bargain price of £14.99! So I quickly snapped one up in my size!

On this particular day I didn’t wear too much jewellery, just a few pearl bracelets, whenever it’s nice and warm, I really can’t be bothered with too many accessories. I feel like they just irritate me on warmer days and to be honest this dress doesn’t need any added accessories, it pretty much speaks for itself.

The weather has been amazing today, went for an ice-cream run during lunch, which is a MUST in weather like this, definitely going to make the most of it after work, as I hear that it won’t last *sad face*. Hope your all having a great day, enjoy the sunshine! J

Its a Short story..

Hey Guys! How are you all? I do hope your well and I would say enjoying the weather, but it’s been raining Cats and Dogs the past week! I’m in London right now and I have to say the weather is amazing, sunny and 26 degrees! So today’s post is all about shorts, I never used to be the kind of person to wear shorts to be honest, I always thought that they wouldn’t suit me and that you would have to be brave to wear them and by that I mean you would have to have ‘drop dead gorgeous legs’!

However I was wrong! There are so many types of shorts that would suit all body types, for petite girls there are high waisted shorts emphasising your petite waist and therefore showing off the curves you have. For the curvier ladies there are shorts that are high waisted and are a little longer and not as fitted therefore showing off the slim legs as well as a slim waist!

There are some HOT shorts out there this season, printed, lace, scalloped, denim, studded, an endless list and I have to say they look amazing and with a simple tee or even bra-let could leave you looking like one sexy little lady! (If that’s the look you’re going for but let’s face it we all are!)

So below is a selection of shorts all available on the high street that I just love right now and all are very much in trend!

Calypso Print Runner Shorts – TOPSHOP

£12.00

I LOVE these calypso print runner shorts, so as we all know that the ‘luxe sports’ trend is big right now and these are the perfect little runner shorts great for this trend, easily paired with pumps or even trainers and finished off with a simple tee and in my case a leather jacket.

Co-Ord Floral Print Shorts – TOPSHOP

£35.00

These high waisted shorts are perfect for those of you who want to show off your petite waistline! The almost A-Line shape cuts off the biggest part of the body and shows off your slim legs. For those who are brave enough to wear such a bold print I would say go for it! The prints are bold and brash but paired with a simple blue or white tee you will feel instantly braver!

Overlay Button Shorts – TOPSHOP

£20.00!

I can’t believe these are in the SALE! I have purchased these bad boys and cannot wait to wear them. The fact that they have the skirted overlay on top just makes it a little more feminine. The white is bang on trend this summer and to be honest every other summer after that, white will never go out of style! I would pair mine with an off-the-shoulder top and I’d rock it up with some studded pumps or high tops!

Light Blue Crotchet Lace Shirts – RIVER ISLAND

£30.00

Crotchet lace style shorts can be seen everywhere these days, from high street to high end and even many a celeb have been spotted wearing them. A must have.  They are the ultimate feminine shorts; the lace adds a more demure and polished look. Off course they can easily been paired with other items to make the look a little more ‘edgy’. I would wear with a simple (neon) yellow top with a spiked tribal necklace and finish it off with some studded black loafers.

Red Palm Print Shorts – RIVER ISLAND

£25.00

Printed shorts are another must have item this summer, from scenic prints, to animal, birds and flowers; there are many that will tickle your fancy so no excuses to have a pair! These are great little pieces to make a statement with and they simply just look cool.

That’s all for now girlies, hope you enjoyed the post and should be back for another post soonage! In the mean time hope you all enjoy the rest of the week.

Much Love

Say it through a t-shirt

Hellooooo ladies, how are you all? Hope your all good and keeping yourself busy! Sorry for the delay in the post, I’ve actually been busy thinking of ideas for a new blog I have decided to create. Beautiful twist was created mainly for fashion and beauty purposes; however my interests also lie in general writing, about life, relationships, ideas and just everyday life.  So the new-not yet named blog will allow me to focus on pretty much everything else! Hopefully will have this up and running by tomorrow 🙂

Back to the post, so now that were in spring and fast approaching summer, a nice way to ease ourselves into the summer season is through printed and slogan T-Shirts. These types of        T-Shirts have always been in trend, easy to put together with any outfit pair it with jeans and sandals and we have a relaxed summer outfit.  Add a black blazer/leather jacket and ankle boots and we have a cool spring outfit.

Below are a few T-Shirts that have caught my eye, let’s have a look:

 

 

River Island

£15.00

Topman

£22.00 – This is actually a men’s T-Shirt, but then again a T-Shirt is  a T-Shirt right? I always mix and match and if there’s something that catches my eye within the men’s section then I’ll either customize it or just buy it in a medium so it fits as a baggy style tee.

 

Miss Selfridge

£22.00

That’s all for now girlies, hopefully will be launching the new blog tomorrow as well as new post on my favourite must have summer satchels!

Much Love
