I’ve lived in England almost all my life and have yet to visit so many places that are on my doorstep. Lepe Country Park is on that list. A family picnic for my dad’s birthday took myself and Hayden there. The weather started out poorly, driving through the New Forest in the lashing rain was like driving in a horror movie. But the sun came out as we reached our destination. The wind, however, didn’t leave us for the whole trip.
Wanting to wear something a little more special then usual windy beach walk wear. In my Edwardian style lace top under a Coca Cola jumper the lace popping out of the collar looks so much more feminine, which I prefer. White trainers to match my lace and rainbow hoop earrings to finish.

Days off together are rare, we only get evenings or a few hours in the morning. When we do have a day off together we make the most of it. We did the quickest tour of Portsmouth you will ever see. H and I went to try out a new burger place, which turned out not to be worth the hype but we did go to Gunwharf Quays and do a little shopping. Well I did the shopping. A little purchase in Levis for a logo T shirt that I’ve wanted for so long and a little Furla wallet which is my new evening bag. We stood looking at all the yachts thanking each other for buying the biggest one we could see.
Remember the last post? The tartan trousers that I lorded above all other forms of trousers? Well I’ve just seen that New Look do them in red and black and white. I need to shake the hand of who ever decided to bring them to New Look because I still love them and will new go buy them in the two other colours.

A round up of the looks from June. Enjoying the memories of each day in June, it was such a jam packed month, spending time with family and friends, creating content and going to events. I hope July is just the same.

What have been your favourite looks on TCHG in June? I can’t wait to explore more with my style and bring you guys new looks for inspiration.
This Next jumpsuit is from last year, do you remember this post? here. I’ve not really worn it since but wasn’t ready to part with it. I paired it with red accessories and a blazer to move it away from a wedding guest look.

Can you believe it’s June.
Seriously where is the time going, and where is the nice weather? I spent Fathers Day with family by the beach. The beach probably wasn’t the best decision, but to live so close it would be rude not to.

The simplest of looks are sometimes the best. Starting a mini collection of looks that are smaller posts. Focusing more on two photos of the look and the details less nattering and gibbering on, I’ll save that for larger posts.

Probably the happiest I’ll ever looking having my look photos taken. It helps having had a few gins when you have an audience watching H take photos of you.

Anyone else jumped on the small sunglasses trend? I tried the trend with these Romwe ones that were super inexpensive. If I become a fully fledged member of the Small Shades Gang I’ll be investing in some more. The black ones are really easy to wear. I got them in red too, but haven’t found the right moment to wear them yet. They are so much harder to style. I’m feeling all kinds of confident and am really excited to develop some great looks for summer.
My aim for the summer is to save some $$ to move out this year and get to the beach. I’m also interning over summer, possibly going to Italy and having a few stay-cations.
What are your plans for summer? Are you working or spending it sat on the beach somewhere?

I dress for myself and if you aren’t you are missing out. Savour the bridesmaid’s dress /uniform etc that has to be worn. After that, there is really no excuse. Being comfortable in what you are wearing will make you more confident. I love dressing in what I like, over what I should wear.
‘I don’t think you should wear that’ translates to me ‘you should wear that right now, go change’.
I love tucking t-shirts into jeans, my body shape traditionally would have meant that I should try and conceal my bod at all times. F’ that!! I love this Nasty Gal shirt and wanted to show off my jeans, so tucked in it is. I feel confident and am living for it. ( anyone else watching RuPaul season 9?)
