Have you ever felt like something was so perfect, you just want to cry every time you look or think about it? That is exactly how I feel about this outfit. It's perfect for a garden party, or a dinner date or anything summer related! The blouse from Lavish Alice is in a chiffon fabric with a contrasting sheer panel and cropped sleeves. I've bought this in a size bigger as I love the oversized boxy look it creates. The skirt from ASOS is a lantern style in a beautiful bright floral jacquard print. I love how much volume the lantern style forms, and it just screams summer with the floral print. If you think the skirt might not be suited for you, pair the white blouse with a pair of light cropped trousers to create a minimal alternative summer look. The sandals from Dorothy Perkins are a papaya colour in a cork wedge style with an ankle strap and large flower detail. Don't forget to paint those toes nails; nothing is worse than unpolished nails with summer sandals. For a less upscale event, swap the wedged sandals for a pair of jelly shoes with lace trimmed socks for a playful summer look.

You know when you see something in a shop and think to yourself, oh I'll buy it another time, and you get home and realise how much you actually want it, then you go back and it's not there? Well that nearly happened to me. After thinking the bag had sold out, (it was actually just hidden behind some other stuff) I finally bought it! Let's just appreciate how much glitter is on this bag. The bag from Anna Lou Of London is a purple shoulder bag with turquoise bow detailing, and chunky silver chain. Such a perfect bag for any summer occasion. As I love glitter, obviously I'm going to want to add more to this outfit but in the form of nail paint. I've chosen Northern Lights and Southern Lights (Models Own), both part of the Wonderland collection, which can be used as part of a manicure or for an all over coat. Not glitter but holographic, the book is a mini sketchbook by Fashionary, you can read my review about their range here. I don't think I've met anyone who doesn't love Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf. As you'd guess, it has a bouquet of floral notes; such a feminine and uplifting scent. Literally, just have a smell and you'll be addicted!
