No, not a newspaper but this rather ace outfit! I have always been a fan of buying things in different colours if I like them and I loved this lilac Monki maxi so much that I bought the monochrome version too! FYI they are both on sale at the moment too. Go and buy them, you will not regret it. These are the perfect summer dress! I love a skirt that I can waft around in and this does not disappoint, mainly thanks to the slits in the side of the skirt. The skirt trails behind you wonderfully for maximum swooshing potential!

That week after I get my hair cut is my favourite time of the month. It manages to hold a style but still looks a little bit lived in - the holy grail of hair! I know I have said this a million and one times but cutting my hair off was the best thing I ever did and I couldn't be happier with my bob. It is the perfect cut for the summer, too; no more getting a hot neck! Ever since I bought Ruby Woo on holiday, I have rediscovered my love for red lipstick and this Max Factor Colour Elixir lippie is one of my favourites and works equally well for day or night...
Brit Stitch is a bit of a blogger favourite and for good reason, their bags are gorgeous! I had been looking at buying a satchel for ages but had never taken the plunge as I didn't like the boxy shape of them. Luckily Brit Stitch's Full Pint satchel is curvier and way more 'me'. I love the fact that they are handmade in the UK too, you can see the level of craftsmanship that has gone into each of these! I ummed and ahhed between the poppy and vintage red but I am glad that I went for the latter, it is much more versatile! Although I am totally in love with the bag (I have been known to stroke it lovingly) I wasn't very impressed by the service. My bag was delivered to the wrong address (billing rather than shipping) and I had such a faff getting hold of it which was super frustrating, especially as I love the bag so much!
Semi-sheer dresses are my favourite when it is warm. You get the coverage of a maxi dress (no need to shave your legs, hoorah!) but you can still see that you have a figure underneath all that fabric ;) I'm wearing my red shoes here but I have worn this dress with everything from my sandals to my trainers, it's nothing if not versatile!
Have you succumbed to the lure of Brit Stitch yet?
