Feeling fresh from a holiday, I feel as though I should be slowly packing up my summer wardrobe and shifting it in to storage boxes in prep for the autumn/winter but instead, I find myself focused on yet more summery pieces to suit the sunshine. It may have something to do with my lovely boy booking a week in Dubai whilst I was in Cyprus (big smile on my face right now) and so before I know it, it’ll be time to rejig all my clothes and I see no point in packing things away to only unpack them again.

The last of the bits I’m hoping to nab before summer completely disappears from the shops is this leopard print bandeau bikini from Topshop… I saw lots of girls wearing this in Ibiza this year, and the fact it’s sold out in quite a few sizes online says it’s popular too but I just love the bold print and think it’ll be the kind of investment buy that sticks around for a good few years. The bottoms, I’m not so sure about. Small prints accentuate EVERYTHING. And tie sides are a bit of a pet hate so I’m likely to swap these for a simple black pair – A little annoying for me as who wants to pay £32 for just a bikini top but I like it enough to justify it to myself, and so I am!

Another fave from Topshop is this bright pink lipstick called ‘Legend’. I haven’t had a pink this bold since MAC ‘Girl About Town’ so I’m hoping for £10 it’ll be a similar match. Aside from the lovely colour I’m a fan of the cutesy packing design by Louise Gray and am currently finding myself tempted by the make-up bags and brushes she’s also designed in shades of yummy candy.

The faux leather peplum from Oasis and H&M ankle-grazers are far more suited for the weeks ahead, especially as I have a few exciting things coming up including Usher’s gig at the Camden Roundhouse this weekend and Vogue’s Fashion Night Out at Mahiki next week. I’ve seen so many variations of the peplum now and I’m yet to become sick of the feminine flair and silhouette. I especially love this top as an edge to the floral/mirror print on the trousers, and think they would be well teamed with a  box clutch, killer heels and this Giles & Brother leather/oxidized-brass necklace. A statement piece if I’ve ever seen one!xo
