After a fun but busy day at the Polo yesterday (pictures coming soon!) I’m more than ready for a blog writing session in my PJ’s today. This week I’m back with another look from Topshop Cardiff and it’s this gorgeous denim dress with a polka dot blouse layered underneath. It has a zip at the front so you just put it on like a jacket, which I love as it’s way easier than having it at the back. I also love pieces like this that you can layer up as it gives you more options for when it’s not as warm. I paired it with my sock boots, also from Topshop that I just can’t stop wearing at the moment. I think they’re about to fall apart but they’ve been so useful. I definitely need to find a replacement soon!

Honestly I think May is my all time favourite month of the year. After two bank holiday weekends and a mini trip to Tenby in between, I don’t feel like I’ve spent much time at my real job recently. I have, however managed to squeeze in lots of work on this blog, including some pics of my gorgeous stripy jumpsuit from Topshop Cardiff. It’s the comfiest but also most trend focused way to update your wardrobe right now and those horizontal stripes do a lot to hide how much I’ve been eating recently.
Florals linen for spring…. groundbreaking…”
If you guys follow Monikh on Instagram then I’m guessing you’re just as obsessed with linen as I am. Obviously it’s something that comes back around every summer but it’s getting a very minimal update right now and those muted tones are hard to resist. I’m especially loving all the two pieces along with absolutely everything from Mango this season. There’s something about picking up a staple piece that makes you feel a lot less guilty too. Kind of.
The jumpsuit also ticks another major trend with these brown buttons, which is why I feel like it’s a good all rounder. They’re absolutely everywhere! I’ve layered it with a tee for this blog post and my go-to platforms but I’d love to know how you guys would wear it. Let me know your thoughts, I’m always on the lookout for new styling ideas…
Hey everyone, hope you’ve all had the best weekend! I’ve pretty much spent mine the same way I always do… drinking coffee, eating too much and taking blog pics, so good! I’ve also been trying to get back into youtube and create a few more videos for my channel. This weeks is a Topshop haul and I’m beyond obsessed with these pieces. They’re all perfect for the summer and really affordable so they’re great for updating your wardrobe on a budget! Let me know what you think…
Chloe, Alexander McQueen, Loewe, Rodarte
This is a trend that’s been around in several different guises for the last few seasons. However, for SS17 it’s a looser, bigger and more feminine ruffle, that is as daring as it is girly. At Chloe it was light and bright in a tulle, as at Rodarte and Loewe. It’s perfect for summer dressing and makes the trend more wearable and less statement. However for the bolder girl, McQueen stuck to the big cascading ruffles of last season but with a floral update.
HOW I’M WEARING IT
These are a few items on my wishlist that I feel encapsulate the trend really well. Wedding season is nearly here and these feminine dresses (minus the white obviously) would be a perfect look with some strappy heels. I also like the idea of wearing them with flats or trainers in the day. The top and jumper are just easy trend injections that you can work into your wardrobe for the coming season too.
It’s here! Toffee nut lattes, frost outside and a mere 7 weeks till Christmas, how could you not love winter? I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone also and how long it’s been since I last did an outfit post! I’ve picked up a few nice pieces recently like this coat in the M&S sale, the grey Topshop tee and this beautiful vintage bag from Penny Lane Vintage. Winter dressing is my favourite and I can’t wait to set my credit card on fire with a few warmer pieces, especially some chunky knit jumpers and coats.

This is the biggest trend of the season and its emblazoned on pretty much everything. The heavy floral embroidery has trickled down from the catwalk and is the easiest way to bring your wardrobe up to date. In light of this I’ve picked a few affordable pieces from the high street to get you inspired.
