Say hello to this beautiful playsuit from, Little Mistress. I'd always thought of Little Mistress as a occasion dress website but I was surprised to see such a lovely range of summer pieces amongst the prom and evening style dresses. This playsuit particularly caught my eye because of the wild flowers and bright pops of colour against the Black which I thought would be perfect for Summer. I love playsuits for days where it's too hot and you want to be breezy, comfortable but still look remotely, 'put together'. I think the lace edging makes the playsuit a little different and adds to the uniqueness of it which also means you can dress this up for a summer evening. To add a bit of masculinity to a very feminine piece I wore these chunky sandals and my favourite mirrored sunglasses from New Look which were only, £3.99, life. <3

So I took these blog pictures last week when it was so so hot and now I'm writing this blog post whilst the weather is crappy. Typical England ey. Anyway, how cute is this TFNC dress?! I love it so much. It's one of those dresses which are so feminine yet so versatile. I could wear this on a night out or during the day made a lot more masculine with some chunky sandals and an oversized jean jacket. I've also been on the hunt for some White sandals for this summer, I spotted these on New Look and love them. I also think these beauties look a lot more expensive than what they were. To keep with the pastel theme, I wore these Mocha coloured oversized sunnies from, The Little Deer to complement my gorgeous floral kimono. Can never have enough kimonos!

Benefit Cosmetics, 'Instant Comeback' Serum and 'Dream Screen' SPF

BENEFIT INSTANT COMEBACK SERUM AND DREAM SCREEN BENEFIT INSTANT COMEBACK SERUM AND DREAM SCREEN
These two skincare cuties are Benefit Cosmetics new product releases for May. They include an, 'age-defying' serum called, 'Instant Comeback' and an SPF 45 for the face named, 'Dream Screen'. I was really looking forward to these two newbies because my current skincare regime is lacking a serum and an SPF so I was excited for get these (the perks of working for a beauty company ey?!).

Instant Comeback Facial Serum
The 'Instant Comeback' facial serum is to be used after cleansing and toning but before moisturising. The benefits of applying a serum before a moisturiser is so that your moisturiser can sink deeper into the skin for better, long term hydration. I apply one and a half pumps of this serum all over my face and then follow with my Oilatum Natural Face Repair cream. I love this serum because it sinks quickly into the skin without leaving a residue and it doesn't feel like you're applying layers and layers of products when your completing your daily regime. My skin has gone absolutely crazy lately in a bad way but I think that since I've been incorporating this product I have found that the tone and texture of my skin is A LOT smoother with a lot of the under skin pimples disappearing. This serum also is supposed to help with dark spots and blemishes which I have found it has definitely helped for me too. This serum comes in at £36, which sounds expensive but it really is not compared to other high end serums which retail at a scary £70 or more!

Dream Screen SPF
This cute little 45ml bottle of SPF is Benefit Cosmetics' take on a facial SPF. 'Dream Screen' has an SPF of 45 PA+++ which protects against UVA and UVB which contribute to aging and burning. Let me just tell you, this is so different to the typical sun cream which we all use in Summer which are usually thick, white, greasy and sticky. This product is oil free so doesn't have any greasiness and it dries completely matte. This means it's perfect for applying under make-up or just by itself, you won't be looking shiny at all with this one. You have to shake the product which then disperses the lightweight liquid through a little filtered cap; this way you don't apply too much. 'Dream Screen' is, £25. I really love this too as it's small enough for travelling and it dries completely invisible and matte.
Has anybody given either product a try yet?!

Pastel Floral

How amazing is this dress? I have been obsessed with it since I've got it. It's probably obvious by now that I love anything with a collar so this dress particularly stood out to me as I also loved the colour of the print too. This dress will be getting a lot of wear from me this Summer because it's a shift dress so it's super comfortable and the material is such good quality as it's thick and stretchy. I'm also loving outfits with White accessories so this dress is a perfect partner for the combination. I wore this pastely inspired outfit in honour of seeing Katy Perry last Friday at the o2, (who may I say was amazing!).
As well as white accessories, I may be a teeny bit obsessed with kimonos. Obsessed meaning that I've purchased four in the last week, including this bargainous Primark one which only cost, £7. I think they just give an outfit such a lovely summery, boho vibe which almost looks effortless. If you're on the lookout for some amazing kimonos, New Look is the place to go!
