Pattern Perfect

Summer has (tentativley) arrived in London and for some reason the sunshine always draws me to vibrant colours and really busy patterns,  accessories, make-up, soft furnishings, whatever, I want them now and they gotta be bright!  These are a few things that have found their way home with me recently.

I had to have this awesome scarf from French label Sandro £220.00 ($341.00) it is perfect for wrapping hair up at work during the summer months, paired with simple jeans and a plain t-shirt, it really seems to make a regular outfit just a teeny bit wow!

Make-up should always be kept to a minimum when the sun comes out, otherwise by the end of the day it will be down by your knees (not pretty!).  A careful skincare routine, a slick of mascara and a blotted down jolt of colour on the lips works a dream this time of year.  Roman holiday from NARS is definitely a seasonal favourite for me. Here for £16.00 ($24.00)

A recent discovery in my most frequented store in London, Liberty, (if you have never been and you are ever in London please stop by here for the most beautifully curated selection of gorgeousness this town has to offer!) are these fabulous cosmetics and wash bags hand made by Alexandra Mann,  each one is unique and lined with wipe clean laundry bag fabric making them super functional.  I can't recommend these enough, they would also make great gifts don't you think?

Calypso by Dior is just the right fruity shade of red for this time of year.  A bright manicure is another great way to add a pop of colour to a work wardrobe or a casual outfit without looking overly done.

Whilst i'm crushing on bright prints and bold colours, I stumbled across this guy on Etsy for the home, absolutely gorgeous. 

I hope wherever you guys are you are having a sunny day.
