Mini Skirts and Alice Bands

I am in of summer.

I feel like it’s been an eternal winter and can’t wait to be able to get my legs our even more. There was just the hint of sun recently and I got so excited, I dug out this denim skirt and felt very summery. I think everyone around me thought I was crazy because they were in gloves and scarves.

Anyone else in love with the hairband trend for SS/18? I’m so glad I kept this one from years ago to work into looks for this season. Versace, D&G and Elisabetta Franchi all showed gold head wear in their SS/18 shows.

Birthday Bowling and Bonas

I always cherish the times I get to spend time with my friend Rianne. She’s moved back to London, so I see even less of her. But we did get to spend a couple of hours together and we celebrated my birthday. I thought I’d share what she every kindly gave me for my 23rd, because she has great taste and I think it’s kind of tradition here on The Curly Haired Girl. Remember this post?

We had lunch at Chiquito I had the Spicy Chicken Texan Torta, which as delicious with skin on fries. Rianne had a burrito. We drank tea ‘something’ cocktails, then a churro milkshake before we headed to bowling. I of course won because I’m to competitive.

The motivational quotes ever girl needs.

The chiquest knuckle duster you’ll ever see.

mango lip balm.

Delicate miss matched stud earrings.

When we were in primary school together I’m sure we first bonded over our joint love for rabbits.

Camelia necklace (love the name) I wore it as soon as I saw it. Rianne really knows my taste.

I love the marble decoration and the pomegranate bath marbles smell amazing, I can’t wait to try them.

I’ve been truly spoilt, thank you.

I think I might have to make Rianne my personal shopper, because I love everything here.

Thank you for reading, I’m off to uni today.

Fancy Popcorn

I’m a true lover of jewellery and I try and find pieces that are stand out, something a little different, a little more then throw away jewellery. While looking over on Wolf & Badger I fell in absolute love with Glenda Lopez’s Fancy Popcorn collection. It’s safe to say that money left my account and a few days later a parcel arrived at my door.DSCN0603

I went for the Green piece of enamel popcorn on a gold chain, because it reminded me of an abstract flower and it amused me greatly to wear popcorn. I wish it had arrived when I went out to see Straight Outta Compton ( amazing film btw, even if you’re not a fan of NWA) popcorn at the movies.

I wasn’t to sure on the length of the chain, I’m not really into short necklaces or chokers, but i love how it sits just in-between my clavicles.The tiny pop of colour means I can wear it with anything. I wear this little piece of popcorn all the time, I get so many compliments. I might get it in other colours too. To be honest I want the whole collection.

Long Denim Jacket

I never knew Truro had boutique shops, independent stores and great places to eat. While I was over in Cornwall with family I was able to explore the city in more detail.

 While waiting for everyone to arrive for lunch I ducked into Magpie and Fox, a treasure trove of gorgeous pieces. All unique pieces for all over the world. I snagged this soft denim jacket in the sale and couldn’t be happier, the length reminds me of a pea coat and I love that.DSCN0507 DSCN0514 DSCN0517 DSCN0519-001 DSCN0490-002

Oranges

DSCN0421-001I love bright colours but never really liked to wear bright orange, that all changed when I saw these Topshop flats the other day. I posted a picture of me trying on the blue ones maybe 6 months ago, on Instagram, but never bought them. I wasn’t going to miss them second time around. They were in the sale too!!

A Million Shades of Blue

DSCN0473Having a day off from work meant I got to spend some quality time with my mum walking around Poole Park, we decided to take ol’ Pip ( our family dog, who is super old and can’t go for long walks anymore) we grabbed a coffee and chatted.

This sailor top is so comfortable and perfect for me, as i live by the sea 😉

DSCN0470My mum joked at how many different shades of blue I was wearing, what can I say I love blue.

The Hunter

To say I’m a shoe addict would be an understatement, I bought a new pair of shoes today even. But I want to talk to you about these shoes.DSCN0327I love these Hunter sandals, the jell of the shoe moulds to you feet and sticks like glue, which makes them the easiest to walk in. Also the colour!! I love, love, love fuchsia, a huge pop of colour to my outfit. I really wanted to make my shoes the focus point of this look.

I love wearing white shirts, but can i get a photo of them with out them looking like a ghost. No, no I can’t!

Any was I decided to be confident today and wear shorts in public, I’m a very conscious person and over thing everything, showing off a feature of my body that i’m not totally comfortable with is very daunting. DSCN0277Having not been blessed in the butt department and given more them my share in legs, shorts always fit a little oddly, but I LOVE this little blue number. The cheapest pair of shorts in the whole world.

Pompoms in Paris

DSCN0258These pajama trousers are so comfy, they were perfect walking around Paris. I didn’t plan to wear a totally black outfit so chose to wear this look on the coolest day. It was still about 20 something.

DSCN0260DSCN0259DSCN0261DSCN0262DSCN0271I love pompoms, this Topshop pompom overlay top is perfect, I tried it on right in the middle of the shop. Even a pompom on my bag. To say I’m obsessed would be an understatement. DSCN0265 DSCN0266Can we just admire these sunglasses for a sec. I love mirrored shades and these make me feel super ‘cool’. I call these me space bounty hunter shades.

Cath Kidston Beach Hut and Knit

Aren’t these beach huts adorable, They have been redecorated by Cath Kinston to brighten up peoples day, as part of the #RandomActsofKidston. You’ll find them on the promenade on Bournemouth beach. I believe that these are the key summer prints.

DSCN0239

Every time I go into Cath Kidston I have to buy something because it’s all beautiful. I love their home wear. But what really makes me fall in love with Cath Kinston are the accessorise. The purses and bags that have the most lovely patterns on, just make an item that extra special.  DSCN0250

DSCN0251How to wear knits in summer. I love this knitted cross over top, it’s so perfect for cooler summer days, I paired it with jeans and of course and my Lulu Guinness. I completely forgot to put my shades on to show you, but they are so gorgeous. I love mirrored sunglasses and saw these on Venz Edits and fell in love.
