Summer Wishlist - DKO X ZAFUL

So with summer basically here and my bank account saying very little after completing my second year of university, I decided I would put together a little wishlist in collaboration with Zaful who kindly reached out to me.  I think by now everyone and their mum has heard of or watched a Zaful haul/review on youtube, mainly focusing on swimwear but me being my ever divergent self had to bring you guys something different...

I decided to put together two looks that I would most likely wear on holiday, smart casual vibes that can easily be dressed up or down for the occasion. As my 20th birthday is fast approaching and I'll be spending it in Paris; of course I had to throw in a few luxury items that I'm lusting over right now and hope to get whilst out there.

As you guys will know from my last post, I'm all ruffles at the moment and had to incorporate that into my looks. Look one, is very summer-esque  and the lace up detail adds a little something different to your standard denim shorts. As I'm hoping to get the Gucci marmont matelasse I decided to colour coordinate my bag, shoes and shades and add a simple chain to bring attention back to my collar bone which is one of my favorite features.

Whilst look 2 is more chilled with trainers instead of heels and a simple white crop shirt and lace up skirt. I can already picture myself outside the Eiffel tower doing what tourists do in this fit. I have seen this skirt on a number of websites and always said I wanted to get it so why not now? I added a simple choker and of course a statement Gucci Dionysus to add a little edge.

Oh and can you guess Gucci is one of my favourite luxury brands?

Lace x Frills - A playful fit

Welcome back guys. I'm back with another outfit that I think I can almost class as controversial. It definitely won't be every girl's cup of tea, especially if you're a trend following type. But I just love it..

I've been really loving the concept of layering which a lot of my pending posts will feature. I originally bought the black dress which I showed on it's own in my last post but thought that I could potentially jazz it up... so when I saw this amazing bodysuit I knew it was a match made in heaven. Just looked at the sleeve detailing. Guys I can't.

I was skeptical about buying this bodysuit as a matter of fact. It's a misguided piece like majority of my wardrobe but I wasn't sure what the quality would be like. The fit itself is perfect because I got it from the tall section when there was a cheeky 35% off. Alone it's cute but the lace detail against the white is just so everything.

Then the jeans. You lot know I love a bargain so when I typed in "flared jeans" on google and I saw these for £14 I clicked soooo fast. I also got them in a blue denim and I think they are just a cute pair of ankle grazers with a twist. They just remind me of summer. I can picture myself in a cute ass crop top and the the blue version of these jeans with a mule or platform heel. Like I said, they won't be for everyone so I styled them with heels and vans to give you two of many ways they can be worn. My boyfriend hates them and as I type this out I'm actually laughing at his reaction when I first showed him. But to each their own, I love them.

As for the belt I wanted a statement piece so I paired the look with my Sonia Rykiel belt which has become my fave designer accessory....until I get my hands on the Gucci gucci marmont belt that is :)
