Singing in the RAIN

Singing in the RAIN

So to put a damper on your summer (no pun intended), if you are in Toronto then, the heavens have decided to piss down on us today. So there really isn’t anything else to talk about but summer rain fashion.

On a rainy day … whatever the season… we look in our closets and always tend to pull out the darkest shades available… black, grey, navy blue. This is all perfect for me as I live in black and grey. Above are some outfit ideas for you to stay fashionable in today’s sucky weather.

Look 1:

Stripes seem to be the go to print during the rain… no idea why… but I dig it.
For this look I paired a striped Dr Denim ‘Blair’ long sleeve top, with Bershka’s boyfriend jeans… on the foot Saint Laurent studded Rangers boot. Don’t be afraid to add pops of color in your accessories, for this I added a Aldo necklace…. oh and don’t forget your brolly, this one is from Pasotti.

Look 2:

Black … it goes with everything and suits pretty much anyone. Just because it’s raining doesn’t mean you still can’t rock the short shorts look, these are from Sheinside. If it’s a little chilly out pair those short shorts with a little extra coverage, add a big comfy sweater like this one from Enzyme. Add a little boot to keep those feet dry in the puddles… and these boots are actually from Payless! And of course compliment your look with some accessories, such as this sun, moon and star necklace from Charming Charlie…. and this rock star umbrella from… obviously… Alexander McQueen.

Just because it’s raining it doesn’t mean you have to stay inside, or wear a plastic poncho. You can look fashionable in the rain… rock those brollys!

Concert Time

Concert Time

So even though England is pretty much out of the World Cup… I am still on my high!

In fact, tomorrow night I will be heading to the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in Toronto, to see my fav band and neighbors from Sheffield… THE ARCTIC MONKEYS!! Sooooo excited!!

So with them being British and of course myself being British I thought I would put together a concert style guide, with a Union Jack twist (pictured above).

Look 1

This is probably my go to concert outfit as I am a bit of a lazy bum. Your fav pair of soft boyfriend jeans are the best thing to ever wear to a concert, as you can dance and jive and not have to worry about a single thing… your comfortable! I did want to ‘sex’ this outfit up a little, I did this by flashing a bit of belly skin, by pairing your jeans with a crop top. Now the shoes are my favorite part… but that’s probably because I already own them… these Union Jack converse beauties are the best thing to ever happen to your feet… trust me!

Look 2

If your confident in showing off your stems… then DO IT! A cute pair of high wasted jean shorts are pretty much a concert staple … if you don’t have any, GET SOME! If you are like me and you ooze British pride then pair it with a massive ‘F’ off Union Jack sweater (which of course I own), however any big slouchy sweater is perfect for a concert, and will leave you feeling less self conscious about your teeny tiny shorts… however please do make sure the material of your sweater isn’t too heavy or you will be hanging out in your bra! To ice this outfit off add the British fashion icon of Dr Marten, and you are ready to rock and roll.

Look 3

The simplest of looks here, and something I actually wear a lot of… the t-shirt dress. The most comfortable dress ever created. This burgundy River Island beauty is perfect for feeling absolutely comfortable at a concert, but also looking pretty bloody cute. Pair these with the classic British music festival shoe… ‘The Hunter Wellies’ and your set!

Going to concerts are so much fun. A time to sing, dance, and enjoy awesome music. I will certainly be enjoying myself this weekend… Arctic Monkeys watch out!

Father’s Day

Image

So for most of you you know that Father’s Day is this Sunday June 15th, for others this is a massive reminder!

But if you are like me, then you haven’t got your gift yet. I thought I would help out… here is a last minute DIY gift ideas for you!

1. Photo Album

Image

You can now get images printed really quickly… in fact on the Walmart website you can upload your images on line and pick them up in an hour… then all you need is an album and a little bit of time.

2. BBQ

Image

Research some BBQ sauce recipes and make some up, put in a cute mason jar and their ready for your dad to get his grill on.

3. Beer Cake

Image

If your of legal age, then you can grab this one for your Dad. Instead of giving him a 12 pack make it a decorative 12 pack.

4. Gift Box

Image

Make your Dad a gift box of all his fav things!… e.g cheese box, blu ray box, bbq box, aftershave box.

5. Key hook

Image

I am sure you have wine corks lying around, turn those corks into something decorative for Dad… simply glue the corks together then screw in some hooks… finished!

 

I do hope these 5 last minute DIY Father’s Day gifts have at least helped inspire you. A personal touch is really the best gift.

Happy Father’s Day!
