JULY & AUGUST INSTAGRAM OUTFITS
Way back in my June Instagram Outfits post I warned you guys that I might not be posting as many outfit pics over the Summer as I usually do. In between spending some time back home in Canada (where I mostly wore leggings and sliders) Aslan and I have been making the most of our time at home with Reggie by taking super it easy and chilling out as much as poss. I’ve had a lot of ‘fashun’ moments during July and August, but in between the no makeup and sweats days I have had a few opportunities to get all dressed up and show you guys what I’m wearing. Here’s a breakdown of the outfits that I’ve been wearing this Summer! (P.S. It’s pretty much been raining non stop here in the UK so get ready to see me wearing a LOT of black and a whole load of denim!)
Last week Aslan and I headed out to a beautiful restaurant called Smith & Wollensky for a fancy steak dinner. I had never been to Smith & Wollensky before but after a bit of stalking on Instagram I realised that it was quite a fancy shmancy place, so I decided to get all dressed up to mark the occasion. If you follow me on Insta you’ll probably have seen me wearing these Isabel Marant boyfriend jeans a billion times since I bought them and that’s because they’re literally the COMFIEST jeans I’ve ever owned and I literally never want to take these babies off! Aslan was adamant that wearing baggy denim to such a fancy restaurant wasn’t a good idea, but once I’d slipped on a pair of classic suede heels and added my favourite tailored blazer I just about changed his mind. I feel so much more confident in a casual outfit so I love to let my accessories do the talking and smarten things up a bit. Any excuse to stay comfy is good with me! It’s amazing what a pair of heels and a cute bag can do to change the entire feel of a simple jeans and top combo! To finish off the look I added a slick of one of the Liquid Matte Lipsticks by Huda Beauty in the shade ‘Muted Rose’. I’m usually much more into wearing a vibrant pink or coral for an evening out but there’s something about this beautiful deep berry shade that made me feel ultra glam and sophisticated. Love it!
It feels like a lifetime since Aslan and I were soaking up the sun in my Mom’s backyard (*sobs*) but since so many of you were asking me about my bikini I thought I’d include this pic in this months post. This is a Stella McCartney bikini that I picked up way back at the beginning of the Summer but unfortunately I haven’t worn it as much as I would have hoped to over the last couple of months thanks to the crappy weather we’ve been having here in the UK. I was immediately drawn to it because of the high waisted bottoms which I LOVE and it also has the cutest little embroidered details which are super duper pretty and add a unique touch. Unfortunately I can’t find the link to the bikini top anywhere (I think it’s sold out!) but I did find this beautiful one-piece version as well as this gorgeous berry coloured triangle bikini set. Aslan bought me my amaaaazing vintage Versace sunglasses while he was away a few months back and I’ve pretty much worn these non stop over the Summer. I found > this < super cool pair of vintage-style sunnies on the Topshop website which are pretty similar.
Black & White
I’ve come to realise that lately I’ve been wearing a LOT of black and white and I have to say that this casual look is one of my favourite outfits from this month. I pretty much only took this photo to show off my amazing socks by LA brand Darner. I’ve been dying for a pair of Darner socks for such a long time now so I was super excited when they got in touch with me and offered to send me a couple of pairs to try. The white mesh ones that I’m wearing in this pic are by far my faves and I just love the way that they look peeking over the top of my classic monochrome vans. I really wanted to let the socks and shoes do the talking so I threw on a simple white tee and a pair of cropped tailored trousers to tie everything together. If you have a weird obsession with cute socks like I do then definitely make sure you check out the Darner site because I guarantee you’ll be all heart-eyed.
It was my birthday last week (shout out to all my fellow Leo’s out there!) and luckily for me Aslan arranged the cutest romantic dinner to celebrate. As you can probably tell I’ve been super into the jeans and heels combo lately and since I’m always looking for an excuse to wear my badass Celine stilettos I decided that my birthday was the perfect opportunity. I couldn’t find the link for these particular shoes for you guys, but I did spot some really similar ones on the Topshop site which are just as beautiful and unique. I love to keep things super simple so I went with a super comfy oversized tee and some ripped jeans before finishing off the look with my adorable mini Fendi bag and some gold jewellery. I love turning a super casual outfit into something that feels dressy and special with just a few simple accessories. If you’re a Leo make sure you tell me what you wore on your birthday in the comments down below!
I hope you guys enjoyed getting the low down on some of my outfits from this Summer. I’m hoping the sun will make an appearance soon so that I can finally wear some of the cute stuff I bought way back at the beginning of the season! Stay tuned for next month’s post to see if that actually happens LOL! Let me know what you guys have been obsessed with in your wardrobes lately!
