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

The sun was shining for the first day of fashion week. Which meant I could wear my fancy pants. I was in two minds of how to style them. I think I wanted to dress them down with something that fell over the top of them rather then all tucked in. I wanted to make them a little more casual. Thou they look fabulous with a pretty blouse I decided to go with a sweater/ shirt combo.  It kind of dresses the trousers up but in a different way, so I’m not sure I actually accomplished what I wanted to.The collar is something I don’t usually go for.  It took a bit of getting use to. Wearing something done up is not usually my style. It’s always hard to know what to wear.  I don’t think I’m ever truly happy with my outfits. There’s always something I’d change… but I guess thats the beauty of evolving – your style grows to create the looks that suit you best.

Juggling travelling from show to show and keeping warm often means not wearing exactly what I would like. Any way enough moaning from me. The day was a great success which hasn’t always been the case. If I told you some of my fashion week stories you’d probably cry for me. But this time with a little help from my firends and family I got it to run smoothly. I made the shows I wanted and I over come my fear of the London under ground. This was great as amoungst other lovely photographers, magazine editors I got to meet a fascinating women who turned out to be a street style photographer for Barney’s New York.  Without her I probably wouldn’t of got on the tube and wouldn’t of made the shows I wanted and on time.

I’ve got lovely shots from the Bora Aksu, Felder Felder & Ryan Lo shows that I’ll share with you on here in the next day. I’d like to get everything up in one day but I’ve got three kids I’ve gotta get back to … so I’ll see you for round two soon. Have a great weekend. xx Dawn

New season calls for a few new season updates. Simple things such as a scarf and belt can help transform everyday wardobe staples. Our jeans, shirts and jackets can be up-dated instantly with a few key accessories.
I love these skinny scarfs and studded cowboy style belts. Team the pieces together for a assemble the pices together to create a new look. I’ve gone for a little Saint Laurent feel to my look. I love finding high street pieces I can create a runway look with. Talking of runways..it’s fashion season. New york fashion week stats this week and then it’s London !! Can’t wait to see the new looks coming of the runway. It’s also time to start thinking about outfits. Accessorise is a good place to start.
Have a super awesome week xx Dawn

Been a while since my last post. The weeks just seem to go by so quickly and so much happens day to day. I’ve been so busy I’ve not had achance to post. I’ve been indulging in a little seventies fashion here. Full look with aviators, leather bomber, tank and flared jeans. Also kept everything black. I do love that look.
I always seem to be drawn to a flared jean. They can be hard to wear. But I do love the classic look. I’m on the hunt for a smart trouser.. I’m thinking flares are the way to go. I love all colours too.Have a great week xx Dawn

An expensive and hectic time of year for sure.If your needing a little gifting inspo then try these high impact gift ideas. Presents with a WOW factor.
I always love something sparkly and it seems this festive season anything gold goes.
When things are coated in gold they seem that little more fabulous and luxurious, especially as gifts. Also tempting for a little self indulgence too.

Gold tone is high on my agenda this winter, not just as gifts but for dressing too. I’ll be putting together christmas outfit ideas for the coming party season too in the next week so keep checking in for something a little different. Wether it’s gold tone or the real deal I think something of this kind is a perfect gift idea. Happy shopping xx Dawn
