Hello beauties, I hope you’ve enjoyed the weekend. The days are definitely getting longer now, and the holiday season is heeeere!! There is nothing more exciting than going on that summer shop, and getting essential beachwear, a pair of sunnies, and something sparkly for the festival you’ve got planned. I’m making it my mission to invest in flowers for my hair and face/body jewels this year!
So, with all this in mind, and several holidays, including a festival CRUISE planned! I have put together a list of a three brands – New, upcoming, amazing – to help kick start your summer and look fabulous!
Getting into shape is the first thing every girl has to at least contemplate when bikini season is on the horizon. I came across Cherie Bumble Activewear when looking for new comfy activewear that looks great at the gym and running outdoors, and this range looks GREAT! I have always been a little stuck with gym wear, top being too small and bottoms always coming up huge on me (as I am the smallest person in the world), but Cherie Bumble’s ‘Small’ comes up perfectly!
Not to mention, this activewear isn’t just the standard leggings, top and jacket, the material is super soft and comfy, and the patterned areas/writing all reflect in the dark. So if you’re like me and love to get out on the road, then you know you’ll be seen by traffic if it gets a little dark out. The Lucia leggings shown above are perfect for the gym too! They have super convenient side thigh pouches, ideal for storing your phone whilst you’re working out. These look great with the Coco Crop top and the Jaguar Jacket, all from the same look.
Coco Crop Top – £23.00 – http://cheriebumble.com/product/coco-crop/

Jaguar Jacket – £60.00 – http://cheriebumble.com/product/jaguar-jacket/

I have always been a fan of MotelRocks. From the quirky co-or sets, to the super cute floral tops, you can always find something for a festival/summer holiday on this amazing website! So, looking for something for my summer holidays, I decided to go for red. I’ve never been a big fan of red. Probably because I’m brunette/Italian, which is the stereotypical colour for these right? but anyway, I decided to go with the flow, and when I saw this dress online, I instantly knew it was the one for me.
With its gorgeous off the shoulder sleeves, and frilly details, the Cannes Skater Dress in Heart Red is perfect for a hot summer date, or just popping for a couple cocktails with the girls. Coming in 4 different colours, it’s an absolutely must have for your wardrobe this summer.

Chokers With Charm *** NEW ***
Let’s face it, Chokers have taken over the fashion world out of absolutely nowhere!! Suddenly, wearing a choker is like wearing your underwear, you don’t leave house without one. It’s pretty much a festival/night out must, and they just keep getting more creative as time goes by. I have seen gorgeous sparkly jewels, and now we are even seeing body jewellery. You can go on about how everyone wears them, and yes, have a little moan. After-all, pretty much every girls wears one at some point, but I can bet you, you either own one, and if you don’t already, you will.
So, without going on anymore, I want to introduce you to a new and up-coming brand – ‘Chokers with ‘Charm’. I have recently interviewed Kat, the founder of the company, who makes all the pretty, unique jewellery herself. She is an absolute beauty and is doing amazing!! Here are a few snaps, and what the lovely Kat has to say about her work. Enjoy!
“I have always had a love of fashion and have had the vision to be able to create something different. So, I started making chokers to go with a variety of my outfits as could never find the perfect one to match every single outfit.
With this love and creativity for jewellery making, I found myself having more and more inspiration each time I needed an choker for an outfit, finding more patterns, styles and colours, which in turn left me with more chokers than one woman could wear…. Not that you can ever have too many accessories, of course!
I then thought, maybe I should let others see what I have been making and see what they think… As it turns out everyone loves them!!!!’
And it’s true… Everyone does LOVE them!
Choker prices range from £2.50-9.00. How amazing is that! Find Chokers With Charm below:
I hope this post has given you some inspiration for summer and a starting point for you essentials list.
Summer Ready!! Peace and Love Wildflowers xxx
