White Lace Dress - H&M
Blue and White Kimono - H&M
White Sandals - Topshop
Sunglasses - H&M


Hello Lovelies! 

I've had a little haitus from social media and blogging this last week or so. After a few hectic months, I took some well deserved time off to catch up with friends and relax. I think sometimes in this heavily digitally-oriented society, it's good to switch your phone off, and connect with people face-to-face. Even though I love technology, I can be quite against its principles sometimes, and a break away is always good to freshen the mind and focus on the important things in life. Hmmm getting a little deep now... Haha!

Anyways, you might recognise this backdrop from my last post as the Costa i Llobera Gardens in Barcelona. I'm desperate to return to the tranquil and tropical area, and I'm definitely missing the scorching sunshine. Scotland just does not compare. I'm wearing a lovely lace dress that I picked up from H&M before I went on holiday. I'm constantly worried H&M clothing will shrink in the wash though, (I've had too many heart breaking post washing machine moments) but was so happy when this sweet number stayed intact - Yay! 

I have lots of new outfit posts lined up to show you all. I may or may not have spent an absolute bomb in the ASOS sale.... It's 50% off right now so you really can't blame me! :)

More soon, 

Helen

  62. Beautiful! It looks like you had a good time. I know what you mean when you just need to unplug for a few days. It happens to me after a crazy couple of weeks during the semester. I may have to do it for myself in a couple weeks despite it being summer.

  67. The white dress is absolutely gorgeous! I'm not sure if it's Wimbledon overload or just some quite nice weather, but I have a little obsession with white dresses at the moment - this one is so pretty. Can't wait to see some more outfit posts - good work on the Asos shop! x

  93. Good for you for taking time away from social media. I definitely feel you about that and try to stay away from phones when hanging with friends. Sometimes it is hard because people can practically be glued to it and then you feel awkward without it. But I do love spending time with friends who keep their phones out of sight when I'm with them. Anyway, lovely look! Always love dresses like that and pairing it with that kimono is perfect!
