Sixtys Fringe

The sixties 'hippy' trend has been floating around for a while now and I am all over anything floaty or fringy. My favourite sixties inspired piece over the summer has been this sheer fringed kimono that has a beautiful embroidered floral overlay and gives a fun bohemian/ sixties twist to any basic outfit. The kimono is actually another piece I won in the #missguidedfest competition and the foundation upon my new obsession with Misguided's collection (as seen on my Instagram . The simple black dress I am wearing is a great example for turning something really basic and not very exciting into something a lot more fun and unique. I usually only wear this black dress on nights out or at parties but with the added accessories of a floppy hat and tan suede boots, the look completely transforms into something much more wearable on a daily basis. 

Also, I just wanted to mention that although the lighting may deceive you, I have not dip-dyed my hair although I am actually really loving the look. I know the trend is a little bit on the old side and has been and is slowly fading out but I would love your thoughts on dip-dying and whether or not I should give it a go.

Swiss Photo Diary

The walking boots and cosy thermals doesn't make this the most "fashion conscious" of posts but I couldn't resist sharing photos from some of my favourite Swiss moments over the past couple of weeks. I think most of these pictures speak for themselves but the scenery was truely breath taking. We started off our journey exploring some of the city life in Geneva for a couple of days before heading out into the mountains near Lauterbrunnun and Zermat (which is the town known for the mountain that's found on all the Toblerone boxes!) One of my favourite daily rituals was going to see the goats walk through the town of Zermat in the late afternoon which was always entertaining as many often tried to escape or have a snack in a resident's garden. As for all the cows, cheese and chocolate, it's impossible to get enough of it and I am definitely going to miss the large array of flavours to choose from. I would love to know if you have been Switzerland what your favourite areas are and I will be happy to answer any questions if you are planning to travel there.

Roaming Through Meadows

I couldn't go to Switzerland without posting about the beautiful flower meadows that surround the Swiss countryside, (you know I love my flowers!)  I tried and failed at counting the number of different flower species I found - some fields have hundreds of species all growing together next to each other making the grass so vibrant and colourful. I couldn't do a floral post without wearing my favourite American Apparel Sunflower shorts which I am sure you will have all seen in previous posts. On my top half I decided to mix up the prints with a striped light-weight baggy tee which is perfect to wear for walking in the hills. Of course keeping shaded from the sun is extremely important especially since I am so pale, so I added a straw hat that I found in a market in Geneva a couple of weeks ago and has turned into my summer staple.

Morning Rise

On those lazy summer days I often wake up and change out of my pyjamas into equally comfy clothes such as  my favourite Brandy Melville shorts or a t-shirt dress like this one from Topshop that I'm wearing in these photos.  These type of outfits have been my go-tos especially for hanging around the home but if I need to dash out the house for any reason I will just slip on some leather sandals and add a straw hat to stay protected from the sun. I found this one recently at a street vender in Geneva inspired by hat styles I have been seeing all over Free People whose Instagram I've been addicted to as of late. If love everything boho, art, music, travel and fashion, I strongly recommend the Free People Instagram to check out for some inspiration.
