Suddenly, it’s September! All the September issues are flaming off the shelves almost as fast as gym memberships. Let’s face it, half of us are disciplined enough to have a strict gym or workout scheduled, the rest of us well, we simply love the pressure 😉
A couple of months until summer, as well as the festive season, seriously still figuring out where all the time went. But let’s not dwell on that, I love this time of year because I get to start shopping with Summer in mind. The best part about Spring/Summer dressing are those iconic prints, that were showcased on all pertinent catwalks, like floral and aztec. Floral is a chic and fun print to mix and match with anything in your closet. Go for a floral look like the one I’ve featured here, pair a solid coloured bottom (jeans, shorts or a skirt) and some gorgeous pumps or sandals. For a little more fun and personality, mix it with some stripes! If worn well, you can’t go wrong with a floral statement piece this “bloom” season.
Nothing says summer like floral prints and the cold shoulder trend.

For this shoot, I played it safe. Mostly because I knew the location would have so much going on in the background, I wanted to ensure there was enough room for all the details to stand out. I paired an off-the-shoulder floral top from H&M, with a plain black jean also from H&M (obsessed with this pair, it’s embarrassing just how many times I’ve worn it in the past few weeks), the blush pink heels are Nine West!
For a change, I had a special guest with me on the shoot, my girlfriend Dercia! I really didn’t give her much of a heads up, but she came through with a gorgeous summer dress in one of my favourite colours, TAN! I realised then that I need to have guests more often, I love showing people the view from my lens and she looked gorgeous. Ignore the two ladies looking pretty in these pics, can we have a moment of gratitude for this mural? It’s absolutely beautiful, haven’t a clue abou the message it’s trying to send, but it’s beautiful nonetheless.
That’s me for now, whatever you do this season, shine and BLOOM <3 ! Thank you for checking back in, loads more coming soon so stay tuned. A special shout out to all my readers 7000 + clicks here already.
