I’ve been a bit absent in the blogosphere recently; sunshine, holidays, new friends and special occasions seem to have distracted me recently. Yet some people have been using their summer in much more productive ways.
Laura, a fellow Warehouse veteran, is at the start of a very exciting adventure as she embarks upon her own clothing line: Trove. She hasn’t sacrificed her summer either, as well as getting engaged she also jetted off to Croatia and Paris. Then there’s Kelli, a friend from school, she’s always been a hip kid and her clothing line Wosh is coolness personified. She’s managed to do all this whilst at the same time raising money for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a cause close to her heart.
These ladies have snapped me out of my summer haze and I will be interviewing both of these inspirational women in the near future so stay tuned. Hopefully their stories will in turn encourage you.
Cora asked: Estelle, I am forever doomed to struggle with finding a good pair of summery shoes (not sandals) – I want some cool, comfy shoes that I can wear in the day and night (no heels please). Can you help me?
Cora look I mean walk no further until your feet are firmly in these beauties…
Oh and did I mention they’re on sale!
These understated classic’s with their simple gold detailing are a perfect transitional day to night staple.
I just couldn’t bring myself to blog about lovely floaty summer smock dresses when I was trudging through 4 inches of snow. All’s well that ends well though, with the sun’s reappearance so too comes a new post…
Now close your eyes and try (really hard) to imagine a hot summer day and then imagine wearing this beauty of a dress…
ASOS Smock Dress in Woven £30
Your day just got better right? The colour is perfect. This burnt orange colour is hotter than it looks, add some blue and oatmeal accessories to cool it down.
Right let’s now imagine you’ve had a day looking for buried treasure in East London’s Brick Lane Market and now you’re off for some cocktails in Shoreditch. For any of you who have been to Shoreditch you will know just how tough the style competition is out there*…but you’ll be winning in this.
