The time of our lives

July has just been so busy and full and wonderful and lovely. Completely packed full to the brim of so many different events, moments and places. I said bitter sweet goodbyes, hung out with friends, enjoyed summer, celebrated my birthday and then jumped on an aeroplane to come to Walt Disney World, one of the most amazing places. Now it's August, and I'm hoping it will be just as lovely and wonderful and busy.
Now's the time, as always, to check out the little snapshot of the month that my instagram feed captured and highlighted. My instagram name is 'holljc' or you can click the little icon to your left or here. I'm always posting away, so make sure you head over if you want to see what I'm getting upto on a day to day basis.

Or only one way that it was always meant to be

Kimono - Newlook  Shorts - Forever 21
Vest top - Topshop  Sunglasses - Ebay
Shoes - Topshop

Isn't this kimono just stunning? I'm utterly in love with it, and so glad I spotted it on the Newlook website when I did. It's even more amazing as, again, it's monochrome, and we all know I love a good bit of monochrome! This outfit is another of the ones featured in my Summer Lookbook video, which you can watch on my Youtube channel (here) Let me know if you do watch and and what you think! 

God bless

Tshirt - Urban Outfitters  Skirt - Topshop 
Shoes - Primark  Lips - Revlon - Candy Apple
Necklace - H&M  Rings - Camden Market, Shop Dixi, Topshop

Those of you who've read my last few blog posts will know that last week it was my birthday, and at the weekend me and my extended family went out for lunch to celebrate, and this is what I wore. I picked this skirt up in Topshop and just completely fell in love, it really is stunning!    
I'd also better let you guys know what's happening over the next few weeks. Tomorrow, yes tomorrow, me and my family are heading out to Florida and Walt Disney World (!!!) for two weeks. I've got a few posts scheduled for the two weeks I'm away, but if I seem rather absentee from the blogasphere over that time, then that's why. But if you want to follow my adventures then i'll hopefully be posting lots and lots and lots over on Instagram (holljc) so make sure to follow me over there if you're interested!

God bless

The Clash

Bomber Jacket - Primark  Playsuit - H&M
Shoes - Topshop  Sunglasses - Primark
Rings - Camden Market

Those of you who read my last post, or follow me on Instagram or Twitter will know that Thursday (July 17th) was my birthday! For part of my birthday, me and my family hopped on a train down to Birmingham, we had a wonderful day eating, chilling and of course shopping. Both my gorgeous shoes and bomber jacket are items that I brought for myself, and I'm so glad I did as I just adore them both! I also uploaded a Summer Lookbook video to my Youtube channel (here), which I will leave below. I had so so so sooo much fun filming and making it, and I'd love it if you would watch it and let me know your thoughts. This outfit is one of those featured in the video, so keep your eyes open for it! I've also been filming lots more videos for my channel recently, so make sure you head over and subscribe to know exactly when those go up!

God bless

Dress - Topshop  Leather Jacket - Topshop
Shoes - Topshop  Lips - Revlon - Macaroon 
Sunglasses - Primark 

A lot of rediscovery happened in this outfit, my dress, shoes and sunglasses were items that had got lost within my wardrobe. However when I recently had a hugeass wardrobe clear out, I rediscovered this dress and the summer loveliness that it is. These sunglasses were also hiding in my old college bag, so it was fun to see those starring back at me when I opened the bag up. This outfit is also going to be featured in a Summer Lookbook video that I'm currently filming and editing to go up on my YouTube channel (here)  If you want to know exactly when that video goes up then make sure to go and follow my channel! Oh, and I thought I'd let you guys know that tomorrow (17th) also happens to be my 18th birthday, so hopefully you'll be seeing a few posts to do with that over the next week.

God bless
