Fashion Union: Summer Style Secrets!


Recently, Fashion Union contacted me and these two other lovely bloggers Gloria, and Rebecca to share our summer style secrets for a little Fashion Union project. We've still got a few days on summer left, and here in the UK we're always likely to have a randomly hot September before it hits below zero weather for Autumn/Winter. So we shared our summer style secrets for you guys, and whether they be for this summer, or next summer, I hope they help!


I'll definitely be trying out Gloria's style secret - tucking your kimono into a skirt? I would have never thought of that! And I've always been so heavily packed up with extra outfits when I go to the beach- I've definitely learnt how to dress properly for an all day adventure at the beach now!
Also don't forget to follow these girls, they have a couple of lovely blogs worth a follow! I have already ♥

What Cat Wore: Leopard Shirts & New Boots


Shirt - Miss Selfridge
Leggings - Miss Selfridge
Boots - Miss Selfridge
Necklace - Topshop
Hair Bow - Lavender Latté

This is one of my favourite shirts. It's three sizes too big, and when I bought it about 2 years ago I just had to because I loved it so much and it was the last one! I bought it too big because it just looked great oversized, with the back cowl cut out for a smart/casual look with a simple pair of leggings and some nice boots! The clashing prints are just gorgeous, and though many shirts have been purchased since this one, it still remains my favourite! ♥
As for my new boots... Ah! Aren't they gorgeous!? I've wanted a pair of cut out boots since they came into the fashion biz last year, but I didn't find a pair I quite liked. When I saw these come out from Miss Selfridge, I knew I wanted them and invested in them as my new winter boots for this season. The cut out isn't too big, and the buckles look great over it. I will admit they hurt like hell for a week wearing them in, but now they've been worn in they're as comfortable as can be! I love them :3

I hope you're all having a lovely bank holiday weekend! I've not got much planned... I have work tomorrow and today I've just been chilling out and running errands... Oh and burning my whole hand with my curling wand! Ouch! Are you doing anything fun for the last bank holiday of the year?

The Travel Bucket List

John and I are adventurers at heart. For the three and a half years we've been together, we've had some amazing times away, and a few of them at that! Together we've been to so many places; John showing me the wonders of travelling in Britain and me showing John the beauty of discovering a new country!


We've always found places in Britain we'd never knew were there, such as the New Forest National Park. The idea to go there came around when John was on Google Maps searching for something else un-holiday related! We've been on those typical British holidays too and stayed in amazing remote lodges with no network or distractions. Pure bliss!
As for abroad, Zankynthos was our best holiday ever. We stayed in a lovely town with the most relaxing atmosphere and plenty to do. Beyond that, we found secluded beaches, quad-biked up mountains and discovered places we would never have thought we would find. That's the beauty of travel - exploration, and discovering something, or a place you never thought you would, or seeing something you've only seen in pictures...

There's so much of the world to see, and probably not enough time to see it all. I wish I could travel the world and just visit all the places I could imagine and see the 7 wonders of the world and more. But for now, I've got a bucket list of places that I want to see and I thought it would be nice to share it with you. It includes the places I've been too before - just so I can say I've ticked them off my bucket list!

There's no time to waste really, and if I did just half of these before I kick the bucket, or even close to it then I think I'd be happy and know I'd seen at least half the world I wanted to see, and especially with my adventurer boyfriend by my side ♥

I'm sure I'll update this time and time again, it's one of those posts you get to go back to isn't it? I love these ♥ John and I haven't really been anywhere yet this year, so we're after something easy, fun and relaxing. We're thinking it's Spain next to cross off! Where do you want to go next?
