The classic camel coat. The fail safe winter staple. Pretty much goes with anything and everything. Chic,comfortable and easy to wear. I love these coats and they last for years and years. It’s definitely worth investing in a good winter coat.This neutral shade is great for long lasting wear and you can always add a belt like I have here. Or even a pop of colour to compliment the soft shade.

Going with a pair of these cropped flared jeans is a great option for Autumn too. Great for showing off boots. As this year there are so many beautiful pairs with amazing details you need a hemline to compliment them. I’ve gone for a pair of sandals here as I was enjoying the last few weeks of freedom for the feet. I do try and resist winter for as long as possible.

Have a great weekend xx Dawn

Catwalk to closet is here!! It happened at Burberry and Topshop unique at London fashion week. Within 24 hours of it being seen on the runways they were on the rails. Obtainable instantly with a click of a button. I really like the concept and I guess it’s a way of getting the buyer to buy the item when they see it rather then it going from their minds and the brands trying to capture your interest again several months later. There’s no time to wait and fashion is moving fast. The competition is mounting and to be able to get people to buy it the moment they see and lust it is the key !!

I fell in love with this floral blouse. The colours and vintage feel captured me and the novelty of being able to wear something that literally was just on the runway took hold and I pressed the buy button. Glad I did as its such a pretty piece and one I can just wear with jeans or shorts.

It’s always nice to have a blouse at hand. It’s a wardrobe staple and one you can reuse. Dress them up or down they are a piece in themselves. My kind of dressing if I’m honest. Something that looks nice but with minimum effort.

Happy Sunday xx Dawn

Feels like summer

Don’t you just love summer. Warm days that just feel so easy. Long lazy nights sat with a warm breeze and a cold drink. There’s definitely been a feel of summer these last few days. Dressing for summer can sometimes feel daunting. Having to unveil skin that hasn’t seen daylight for months isn’t the nicest feeling. It can sometimes feel awkward. Tops of legs and arms or the belly. Wearing cut out tops and shorts can feel alien to start, but it only takes a few days and everything feels natural again.

Preparing skin for summer sun can be an effort. But if you keep on top of it, you don’t need to be constantly worrying about it’s appearance. A good exfoliator is the key and I also like to use a coco butter to moisturise my skin as it’s longer lasting and really helpful at hydrating my skin. I’ve recently used the Charlotte Tilbury body balm and magic face cream. I have to say the results are amazing. My skin was instantly radiant with minimum effort. I always like to tan my skin with a little help from my favourite James reed mousse. Make sure skin is treated before applying-especially if its for a special occasion. I never exfoliate the same day as I tan. I always worry about damaging the skin then adding something to it that can aggravate it. So I allow at least 12 hours before I apply the tan. I always moisturise my ankles and hands after the tan to try and even it out. Bony areas are always a pain to get right. Big point to watch out for is washing hands after tanning. Don’t do it…well not for at last 30 minutes anyway. Gentle exfoliators are the best for the face, nothing too rough remember delicate areas need some TLC. Keep lips soft in the heat with a handbag size lip balm and I always think a eye serum is useful to use throughout the day to keep looking fresh and radiant. Happy pampering. xx Dawn

We had such beautiful weather whilst in London. I took full advantage and snapped a few pictures of this gorgeous black lace dress. A little bit cheeky with it’s sheer nature but I’m totally into this style. I love the look. It’s such a great piece for summer. Non crease and light weight which means it’s the perfect packable dress.Low maintenance-high impact

Packing for summer hols can be such a headache. No one wants to be ironing constantly but in the same breathe you want to look amazing on days/ nights out. Finding this kind of summer essential can make life and holidaying so much easier.It would also fit well in hand luggage. So if your not checking in a heavy case and your only away for one or two nights then this ticks all the boxes. Are you off anywhere nice..?

I’ve been in London for the Banana Republic event that I was co hosting with three other bloggers at the Regents street store. It was such a lovely evening. And I got to showcase my favourite summer essentials. If you follow me over on instagram you’ll see my dress from the event. It’s dreamy, and if your looking for a dress for an occasion I’d definitely give it a try. I’ll also put a post up of my outfit and of the night.

I’ve so many beautiful looks to post up so I’d better get a move on. Have a super long bank holiday weekend. xx Dawn

A small selection from the Bora Aksu AW16 catwalk show that I got to attend at London Fashion Week. I loved the colour palette,  from rich reds and plums to fairy soft pinks. The dramatic surrounds of the church played it’s perfect role in this gothic/victorian inspired collection. The glossy checker board flooring was effective in bringing each piece to life.Although the collection had an influence from the victorian era it was still very modern. With high necks, sheer fabrics, lacy collars and dropped waists. Not to be taken too seriously (the bonnets) but to be inspired by. To take the pieces you love and to work them into your look your way.

I always love his designs. So much thought put into every piece. It’s always an inspiration seeing these catwalk shows. It’s not to create the exact looks but to be inspired – to find a new way when you dress. Taking note of new season colour trends -colour mixing and for putting pieces together in different ways is what it’s about.

The intricate and delicate finishing makes every piece special. There’s always a conflict within the collection with feminine floaty pieces versus a strong bold edge. Ruffles, fur,tailored jackets, laced up boots and so much more… Love love love as always Bora Aksu xx Dawn
