Girls with curls and Sugarhill Boutique

Last Wednesday we both managed to have the day off work so took the opportunity to pack in a full day of blogging fun in beautiful Bath! Naturally it wouldn’t be a proper blogger day out without taking some outfit photos so after having our hair perfectly cut and curled by the delightful ladies at Frontline Style (our full review will be up on Total Bath shortly so keep your eyes peeled locals) we frolicked around near some of our favourite Bath buildings in some super lovely Sugarhill Boutique pieces.

We both adore the fun and feminine style of Sugarhill boutique so it was an absolute joy to be able to choose and style a few of their Summer pieces! We are both usually drawn to their quirkier prints (dogs, lollies, massive toucans – that sort of brilliant shenanigans) but thought this might be a nice opportunity to try something a little different.

Victoria chose the gorgeous blue Stripe Organza Midi Skirt* which looked breathtakingly good as she swished her way around Bath! It’s so elegant and flattering and looked perfect when teamed with the white Emma Shell Top* which features a very pretty broderie detail. She finished her look with her white Forever Comfort sandals from Next* and an extra pop of colour in the form of her staple Boden Westminster handbag*.

I went for the vintage inspired Aurora dress* which features the most beautiful pastel floral print. The colours look stunning and the fit and flare cut make it such a comfortable dress to wear. I was, as always, thrilled to discover the dress has pockets which I will no doubt be stashing all manner of things into at a Summer wedding near you! I teamed the dress with sheer dotty tights from Pamela Mann at MyTights*, a mustard belt from Primark, cream brogues from Faith at Debenhams (old) and, seeing as great blogging duo minds think alike, an extra pop of colour in the form of my staple Boden Milan clutch*!

Bloggers Love: Secret Garden Event @ Mahiki

When the invite to The Secret Garden event and fashion show popped into our inbox I was pretty damn excited. Two minutes after finding out it was being held at my favourite London nightspot Mahiki, I was calling BFF Ailsa (above) and starting outfit planning. The last time I was invited to Mahiki for a birthday do, but couldn’t make it due to work, a pal bumped into my second favourite Zac, Zac Efron. She promises me that she gave him my number…he must have misplaced it!

The event showcased swimwear and lingerie from up and coming designers from all over the UK, with lots of product displays dotted around the club. Designers included Alanna Rose Designs (whose gorgeous white swimwear can be seen above), Poshtotti and the whole night was sponsored by MAKAN. I’ve managed to whittle the designers down to my top 3 for your reading pleasure. Let’s dive right in!

Sasha Jane Lingerie and Loungewear stood out to me, probably because I just luuurve to lounge. Their pink polka-dot ‘Ema’ range was promptly added to my Wish List when I returned home.

If you are a regular reader you will know it has to be at least 31.5C before we will go tightless, so we are always on the lookout for new fun designs. Unfortunately, it’s super dark in Mahiki, so the above photo doesn’t do the quality of the tights justice, but Pamela Mann really did have a great display! If you are a dress and tights kinda gal, you’ll definitely find something you like on their website.
