The Stripey Midi dress #ZafulBlogSeries




Okay! Seriously! I have never had so many compliments before I wore this sun dress. Of course I liked it,  otherwise I wouldn't have it, but loads of people seem to think it's great! I had a stranger tell me it looked lovely. When does that happen in this day and age?! Needless to say I am going to wear this a lot. 
Once again I am carrying on my blog series with the fantastic website; .Zaful. I have been so lucky to work with this carried and exquisite brand.
This bold midi dress is one of many on their website, but this particular one caught my eye as the dark colours are highlighted by the light so the bold stripes really come through. I love to wear darker colours because I think they suit me more, but dark clothing in the summer can be a little odd next to the pinks and light blues. So the white makes it a lot more summery and exsentuates the beautiful anday flattering shape.  This perfect for those summer garden parties and or you're trying to get in the spirit of Wimbledon as you need to be cool with this thing fabric is great for and there is not always a need to show your legs or chest. This provides a very classy option. 
I hope you have heardone if Zaful because some major instagrammers have been raving about their swim suits and YouTuber Patricia Bright has done a fantail review. You really need to check their website out!







A pop of red #Zafulblogseries


Wow, I love this perfect  summer dress. I had been waiting for it in the post very eagerly from when I ordered it off a blog favourite which is Zaful! 

I will be completely honest with you, when I first tried this on I went 'Oh', as the dress is not only low cut, but the whole chest area is a little wide. I would usually put a few stitches in and no one would be any the wiser, however this is a wrap dress which is one of my favourite qualities, because it wraps perfectly around YOUR body shape. the first day I wore this I used the good old safety pins to keep my modesty, but this still didn't work because I am not exactly flat in the chest area. If smaller breasts then a pin might work fine but I had a few pop moments! I can't decide whether it was funny or not. 

The second time I wore this beautiful bright Zaful dress I tried a vest top even though I felt like a little girl putting my vest on. Luckly, I loved how this sneaky bit of lace complimented the colourful dress and it was a lot more relaxing knowing that I wasn't going to fall out at any moment. 
I know it sounds boringly practical , but on our summer days that aren't too hot then an extra thin layer is rather enjoyable! 

I'm now going to be looking for more wrap dresses on Zaful, because it compliments my body in all the best ways. its comes in on my actual waist and it doesn't hang around it like some normal dresses and it floats over everything else which is great in summer!








Merci Moman. Forever pretty.




Something my sister and I say is; that if its good enough for Duchess of Cambridge then it is good enough for us. This seems very random, but it is in relation to one of our favourite brands, Merci Maman. Our taste can vary sometimes, but we completely agree about the huge brand that came from a lovely lady's kitchen table which is amazing when you think about it!

I was so lucky on my 18th birthday to receive a personalised necklace from my wonderful sister from the brand that we both love. I love that it is a great English brand but it has a huge nod to the classic french style which I am all about, like I said on my Instagram. On one side of my necklace is my name which was a big deal for me because with having an extremely unusual name, so I have never found something with it on. My sister has always appreciated my want of things with my name on so I was more 'normal' and I know that is silly, but its fun. On the back of the shiny heart is one of my nicknames; Bridgie which I have been called all my lift as its a little less formal than Brigid. 

However, one of my favourite things I the tiny little circle with a 'C' inside to always remind me of my sister as her name begins with C. Something silly I have loved for years is that since she got married her initials are CC and mine or BB. Mmmmmm, its so pretty!

Yellow Crochet Bikini? #zafulblogseries



It's basically summer now so that means for the lucky ones of us summer holidays! If you're feeling comfortable enough then that means bikinis. Maybe a really fashionable colour block costume or maybe even a crazy yellow crochet bikini?! 
I wanted to share some really fun swimming costumes and bikinis that you might be interested in. I was inspired by the Zaful website and I have made a little wishlist which contains a range of different beachwear like the classic and simple black swimming costume that every woman should feel fabulous in because I know you will look stunning. 

Or if you want something cute and playful then I think this bright pretty blue bikini is perfect. And as for this amazing yellow crochet bikini it really is something else. I kind of love it though because you have to have guts to wear this even in your own garden, but who cares? Where what you like, as long you're happy and comfortable, so I think Zaful is a great place to shop for good quality and comfy clothes. I've worn clothes from Zaful again and again, so I do know it to be true.
