simply black




dress: motel *
hat: new look
rings: jwlry & market stall
necklace: primark

How hot does it want to be today! Anyone would think its summer! #englishpeopleproblems! I've been sweltering away today with my two favourite men in my life my little bubba brothers. Me and Zack had a argument today about me having my iPhone on, he then proceeded to work out how to turn it off himself... hes 3 years old! Bloody kids and technology!

Motel and I have been doing a bit of promotion together recently and they offered to let me curate my own shop for their website. I've picked out a selection of my favourite dresses and of course some super bright Models Own nail polishes to go with it. I chose to just keep it basic and simple, because thats what I like to wear. I think most of the time the simplest of outfits with a pop of colour can be the most effective. They have kindly offered a 15% off discount code using LLYMLRS at the checkout. If you want to see what I chose as my favourite pieces head over to the shop and have a look!

Make sure you follow the Motel Tumblr & Twitter! I'll be doing a interview for their blog over the next few days so be sure to check that out too! If you do head over and have a browse, if you have any favourite pieces let me know and I may add them to the shop!

  1. Lovely all-black outfit! It's really "you" with all that silver antique-y looking jewellery, haha.
    Yeah, it was so incredibly hot today. Not DREADFULLY hot, but I'm pretty sure I broke out in a sweat at some point. Also, congrats on the Motel shop! I'm off to check it out now, that's a great achievement!

    I'll have to leave checking out Motel until payday, it's too dangerous...

  6. Can't fault this outfit at all, looks stunning and very classy. Black always looks a treat on you, for me I find it really dulls me out because I'm so pale!

    Great news about curating for Motel! Looking to having a look.

  9. Very nice simple outfit. Love the hat! I really need to find myself a black floppy hat.
    I like that you've included those striped skinny jeans in the motel shop. They really are lovely, but they break my 'no more than £30 unless they're shoes' rule :'(

  17. Just checked out your shop selection on Motel & wish i hadn't gone shopping today so i could add some items to my bag without feeling guilty! Especially love all the nail varnish colours.
    I do leopard nails a la Gem but mine are soo scrappy compared to yours, they look fab! Also, i don't think anyone quite pulls off the floppy black hat quite like you!

    Really congrats with the Motel happenings, you deserve it :)
