Catch Up, Sneak Peeks and Holidays!!!

Hello strangers!!! So yet again I find myself typing an apology post saying I'm sorry for being away for so long!!! 

This blog is equally a huge part of me but also a very small part of me. I love blogging and am generally my happiest reading and writing blogs but for me but I have to be in the right mindset to write a blog and recently I just haven't been. I've found it hard to find inspiration. There's a mixture of things that are to blame for this including holiday planning, a new job and a few other life things that are taking a lot more of my attention (very exciting life things!!! Nothing bad!). 

Unfortunately I can't promise that I'm going to be blogging a lot more over the next month or so either because on Friday I'm off to spend a month in France with my family! Although I will be doing OOTD's while there so in a way I will be blogging more often (hopefully every day but as I said, no promises!!) 

Something new and exciting that is happening either today or tomorrow is that there will be a YouTube video going up on my YouTube channel (aaaah!!). Two weeks ago a friend of mine popped over to my house to help me take photos of some of my favourite summer looks and instead of putting the huge amount of photos into loads of large posts I decided to put them into a sideshow and pop it onto YouTube!! It's my first teeny tiny baby step into the world of YouTube!! So look out for a post when I've put that up! The photo above is a little sneak peek! 

Anyways, enough about me!! What's been going on with you lot? You all good?

Hope you're all having a good Monday so far!!

P.s. Here is the link to said video!!! hope you like :)

Summer Inspirations and Wish List

Heres the first post from my Summer style series! I thought I'd start with some pictures that i've looked at for inspiration and my wish list!

1. I loved the combination of the shorts with the heels! Although heels wouldn't necessarily be practical all day it would make a really nice day to night transition outfit! I am also totally in love with the ankle length kimonos especially sheer ones!
2. Bras that look stunning deserve to be shown off (thats what I think anyway) and I think this bra really toughens up the pink girly dress.
3. Again with all that sheer fabric! Totally in love with it! (And the hat and sunglasses)
4. The combination of bra showing through lace looks gorgeous! 
5. Im really liking the fact that plaid shirts have come back, not necessarily to wear but just to tie round the waist, really easy to wear in the summer and it means on those colder days (we get a lot of those in a Scottish summer) you always have something to put on if you get chilly!
6. All that black but it still looks gorgeous and summery! What you can't see is the embossed flowers all over the dress, its stunning.
7. I was surprised that I liked this dress so much but if I paired with with the right belt (maybe not the same one in the picture) I think it could look really nice!!

My wish list has turned out to only be from two shops, Asos and Topshop. There are other things on my wish list but it's seriously far too long to put into one post so I picked some of the more expensive items and put them here since i'm not completely sure if i'll get any of these! There's other items on my wish list that I know i'll definitely get so you'll get to see them anyway! I'm hoping i'll be able to get one or two pieces from this though!! (Fingers crossed!)

I hope you liked this post! Let me know if any of these items are on your wish list and if you liked a little peek into my inspiration board. 

Whats on your summer wish list?

Happy Monday!
