Golden city nights.

 photo IMG_2140_zps2189e43d.jpg
One thing I love about living in Portsmouth, is the summer evenings. After work when  go meet Chris in Gunwharf, or simply go on evening walks on the seafront or by the Spinnaker tower (one of our only interesting monuments)! Gunwharf is one of my favourite parts of the city, and as Chris works in the area I love hanging out drinking elder-flower lemonade and catching the last of the sunshine. The past week I have been making the most of my surroundings and time off with nights like this one, where the sun is pretty and I feel chilled and happy.

Floral Joggers - AXParis
Cami Top - Miss Selfridge
Sandals - Primark
Lace Cardie - Chicwish
Anklet - Miss Selfridge
Handbag - Accessorize 

My outfit is one which really does represent the perfect summer night staples. Everyone needs a pair (or a few pairs) of printed jogger trousers! They are unbelievably comfortable AND stylish, complete win win in my book. This beautiful floral navy pair are from AXParis, which as you know is one of my favourite brands for on trend items. A simple and easy look with these joggers is a pretty coloured cami top, sandals a lace cardie or denim jacket and all the right jewellery which in my case is an anklet and pretty necklace.

They call me mellow yellow.

Well, I wouldn't exactly say this outfit had 'mellow' yellow in it but hey, it sounded good! Nothing beats a splash of colour and then a lovely print as well, Warehouse really do have a great selection of textiles among their items and this top really stood out to me. I work in a joint store with Warehouse below us (Miss Selfridge) and I walk through every day spotting really lovely things. I saw this a while ago and fell in love with the print but wasn't sure on the neckline on me, but I gave it a go and really love it. The hem scoops at the back making it a perfect top for wearing over leggings, for those lazy days I seem to have quite often on days off now. The perfect casual additions to the outfit is a staple denim jacket and my favourite pair of sandals, can't go wrong! ...Well maybe a bit of sunshine wouldn't go a miss as well (I don't ask for much)!

I want to hold a Giveaway for a few reasons; Obviously I work in Miss Selfridge now so I want to share the brand, and give you lot the chance to buy something from them - and may I say the new trends coming in are fab! Secondly, I feel a bit 'out of the loop' and a bit of an outsider with the whole blogging game nowadays.

Basically I want to hold this giveaway to show you guys that I still care a lot and I appreciate you all more than you can think of. Not just all of you readers but my blog in general, it keeps me sane, means I can express myself and most of all I can hold onto my creative side that seems to be faltering as of late. SO here is a little treat please enter, share away and I wish you good luck, I wish I could buy all of you that enter one, but for now hopefully this will do.
