(Dress: In Love With Fashion, Bag: C/O Mybag.com, Brogues: Topshop, Lipstick: Mischief @ Topshop)

So! The sun has got his hat on, and I couldn't be happier! Although it initially sent me into a slight sartorial whirlwind (tights? no tights? short shorts? TOO SHORT?) I think I've come to terms with my summer wardrobe, and although I am taking caution as to not become too confident with putting my jumpers away, am loving being able to wear my summer dresses and shorts I've had saved up! This dress is certainly no exception. I like to think it echo's a little bit of Zooey Deschanel's ladylike 50's style, something I certainly look for in the perfect girlie frock. I teamed it with my classic nude brogues, school satchel, cat eyed sunnies and a red lip to finish the look.

Anyway! Today I headed to the Breakfast Club in Hoxton with my dad and brother, for well, some breakfast! With Elvis films showing in the background (G.I Blues on this occasion), Plastic Bertrand and The Marvelette's echoing in the background, fond feelings from yesteryear were apparent from the word go. With dishes appearing as if they'd just arrived fresh from Marks & Spencer's newest advert, I was simply spoilt for choice (but did end up choosing the berry pancakes with maple syrup!) The food was absolutely delicious, and I'm excited to go back and hopefully be able to sample the lunch and dinner menus too. I'd definitely recommend one of their restaurants for breakfast if ever you're in town, such a massive selection, and amazing quality- yummy!

A couple of other things! Recently, I've had a few comments on my make up, and I was curious as to whether anyone would like to see anything more beauty related on my blog? I've been receiving Glossy Boxes, and trying new things of late, but always get a little worried as to whether I should post (as I'm not very clued up in beauty)! Nonetheless, it'd be good to get some feedback!

Additionally, I'm also taking sponsors and adverts for my blog in June! If you'd be interested in having your blog or shop in my sidebar for the coming month, drop me an email- I'd be thrilled to have you there (sorry if you've already seen my tweets!)

Finally, you may have also spotted me in this months Company magazine, sporting a sporty Olympics inspired ensemble, as part of their special festival issue! Tres exciting! There's also some amazing bloggers in there too, so it's definitely worth a peek!

  2. Reading this post kind of makes me want a summer dress with a full english breakfast print... I really hope it doesn't exist, as I know I'll end up buying it. Love the back of your floral one, and its sensible print. I've been to the Breakfast Club once for coffee and a cake, did you go to the toilets?? The one I went in had comic books all over the walls. xxx

  4. Ohh I love the breakfast club in Hoxton. I went just a few weeks ago and had the breakfast burrito. Going again on Sat and I might just have pancakes too :) x

  5. I am doubly jealous of your pretty dress and those pancakes! American style pancakes are right up there in my favourite foods, I need to find somewhere near me that serves them! Also, I'd say go for it with beauty posts - my blog is mainly beauty but I'm definitely no expert! As a reader of lots of beauty blogs I just like to read different people's opinions on products so don't be worried xx

  20. McQuivey prefaced his notion by saying celine outlet shop Apple really needs to do something different to capture celine bag consumer attention in a market where people update their technology less often. That's as opposed Celine Luggage Tote to iPhones, which have become Apple's biggest money-maker Celine Boston Bag due in no small part to their shorter lifecycle among buyers who get them as a Celine Luggage bags discount when signing two-year phone contracts.
