INSPIRATION | Andreea Diaconu for Mango

Sorry for the picture overload but I'm obsessed with Mango's Summer Lookbooks. I've seen Daria's campaign popping up all over blogs but as much as I love her I must admit my favourite shots are the ones of mega babe Andreea Diaconu (her brow game is strong.) I really like the palm tree print pieces and I tried that bomber jacket that's in the last photo on in store and loved it (although I didn't look anywhere near as cool as Andreea unfortunately.) I think the minimal pieces are really strong and I'm definitely appreciating the Marant vibes...I think I'm going to have to get my hands on one of those shirts for the summer. I'm not sure I can really pull off that whole boho thing but it's all too pretty to not attempt it!

 Mango's lookbooks are always really cool but then when I actually go in store I've usually been left disappointed with the quality of the clothing and walk out empty handed. However I feel like this is less of a problem with the summer collections, I think the materials are quite nice compared to the winter pieces which are too thin and most of them are unlined. I still prefer waiting for the sale though, like there's no way the little skirt I bought last week is worth £30! 

What do you think of this campaign? Has it got you dreaming of sun tans and sunny beaches too?

NIGHT OUT | Birthday Celebrations

Top - Primark (old) | Skirt - Mango | Shoes - Topshop | Necklace - Etsy | Ring - Topshop

I'm sorry for yet more blurry selfies but I was in a huge rush and had no time to take proper photos. On Saturday night I went to Clapham with family and friends for my birthday meal at a Mexican and then we went for a drink afterwards. Had a really lovely night although I didn't get in til 4 so literally slept all day yesterday! 

The outfit was very last minute, I think you can tell by the mess behind me that I was having a bit of a dilemma. I was so tempted to stick to jeans but I thought that as you don't turn 21 every birthday I'd better make more of an effort (I even fake tanned haha!) I got the skirt from Mango via ASOS, it was an absolute steal at £11.50 as it's in the sale and I got an extra 15% off. It was a little big so my mum took it in a bit for me and now it fits perfectly. The shoes are also new, the heel is only tiny but that's all I can handle...and even then I had pins and needles in my feet all day afterwards!  

I promise in my next outfit post the pics won't be as lazy! Hope you had a fab weekend too.
