Why this colour is a summer must-have

Well here it is ladies and gentlemen, my first “proper” fashion-ey post with an amateur photoshoot to prove it!


So, a couple of weeks ago a little bird told me that lilac is trending right now according to Topshop and as us fashion gals know; if Topshop says it, then it must be true. Obviously. So me and me sister ordered some lovely pieces in this beautiful violet tone and got to work in proving Topshop’s theory to be true.


(Ironically, none of the pieces are from Topshop. Sorry Topshop.)


Now, without further ado..



BOOOM! There she is! People of the blogosphere, meet my not so little sister, semi pro singer and much better model than me; Cat Dangerfield!



This look is a more subtle take on our colour of the moment as it’s the base shade of a mesh top with a floral print, y’know, just for anyone who’s not that excited about lilac. But you totally should be.

For look number two we’re giving some edgy American desert vibes with just a touch of lilac on these Pretty Little Thing shorts which, by the way were SIX FREAKING POUNDS!

Nice and floaty for a hot summer day in a foreign land (or a botanical garden) and gives a bit of an edge to this super girly colour (don’t you think?)

Shorts: Pretty Little Thing – Bomber Jacket and Cap – New Look – Vest Top and Trainers – Topshop .. Ok I lied, there are a couple of things from Topshop. Are we forgiven now?



Here I am being a stereotypical blogger holding an imaginary (and massive) phone, acting like I know how to be candid..

Ok, sarcastic moment aside, here is look number three. We were trying to tick all the SS17 boxes here with gingham, frills and lilac. What do you think?

Top: New Look – Trousers: Zara (shoutout to Gemma for the loan!) – lilac hairspray: Superdrug (it doesn’t stay in for very long but it’s cheap AF and ideal for a quick photo opportunity)
