How to Style a Midi Dress for Summer

16 Jun 2019



Hello everyone, 

although the it has been rather rainy in the UK at the moment, I thought I would share with you how to style a midi dress for summer in hope the sun will come out again. A couple of weeks ago I was invited to a boutique in my local town called Frank and Doll and the lovely ladies allowed me to try on some of their pieces and take some photos for their social media. I had such a great time and felt like a right little blogger haha...

So I tried on about 4-5 different outfits and styled them all up how I would wear them with the cutest accessories. Frank and Doll is an affordable clothing and accessory brand that sells everything from clothes to basket bags to necklaces and light signs. Their boutique is just amazing and is so Instagrammable. If you are ever in Cheltenham I would highly reccomened heading down and popping in as the girls are so friendly and I am nearly 100% sure you would all love their pieces. Everything is so on trend and so my style, so if you love a cute, girly look, this is definitely a place to visit. If you are not visiting Cheltenham anytime soon, they do have a website https://frankanddoll.com/ . 

We took so many cute pics, but today I will be sharing with you How I style the Alice Green Gingham Dress. Do not worry, there will be upcoming posts for the other outfits we styled up so look out for those coming soon. 

I am absolutely loving the midi dress trend at the moment and have seen so many lovely ones all across the high street. This one is only £34 and is such great quality and can be worn to so many different occasion, possibly a wedding, christening or even a bbq or summer picnic. As you can see here I styled it with Frank and Doll's Carmen Bamboo bag. These have been so popular and on trend these past couple of summers and you can see why. It is just the perfect summer bag to pair with almost any outfit. Because of the neutral colours it will look great with so many different things. 

I also paired this with a Gucci belt which added that little extra glam, however if it was more of a casual occasion you could always remove the belt and just stick with the bag and a cute little pearl hair clip. I also paired this with the girls and boys necklace pendants and the most adorable heart sunglasses which only cost £13. These just made the outfit look so glam. I then paired them with these nude heels, however once again, a pair of sandals or espadrilles would look great if you were wearing this dress to a summer bbq or picnic. You could also swap out the bamboo bag for a clutch if you were after more of a night time look.






Thankyou to the lovely ladies at Frank and Doll for having me and making me feel so welcome!!
Thankyou so much for reading...

Top Five-Places for Brunch in Cheltenham...

11 Jun 2019


Hello everyone,

Today I am sharing with you a new series that I wanted to start on my blog. I feel like this will really help out a lot of people, and hope that it will give some of you lovelies an idea of where to go or what to do. I am going to start the series off with my home town of Cheltenham as there are so many lovely places and hidden gems. Growing up in Cheltenham, it has always been pretty boring, as there was never many places to eat or things to do. However, there seems to be a lot of quirky places cropping up around Cheltenham that me and Sam love going to try out. I really hope you enjoy this series and I really hope this is a massive help for any of you wanting to visit Cheltenham or for those of you who just need a new breakfast spot...

1. The Scandinavian Coffee Pod

Now this is more of a coffee shop than a brunch spot, but myself and Sam visited the other day and it was such a nice spot. The coffee was one of the best I have ever had and the prices were also really reasonable. They sell amazing hot and iced coffee and a choice of, what looked like amazing cake. It is quite a small little shop so it is probably better to go during the week to get a good seat. They also have outdoor seating which is great for when the sun is out. 

2. The Find

One of my favourite spots in Cheltenham for cake and coffee is The Find. They do incredible cake and the most amazing cruffins. Their breakfasts are also amazing and I would highly reccomened their avocado on toast and also their halloumi fries. It also has lovely interior and is such a lovely place to go for brunch. I even got my mum and dad into going and now they often go for little breakfasts dates there, which is the cutest thing. But the Find is definitely near the top of the list.

3.  The Curious Cafe

The Curious cafe is one of the cutest, quirkiest cafes in Cheltenham. Based on Bath road, the cafe offers breakfast, brunch and lunch and often put on events with local food company's for dinner. They offer so much on the menu and is incredibly affordable and their outdoor garden is perfect for breakfast in the sunshine. I would highly recommend...

4. The Bottle of Sauce   

Now I am unsure if the Bottle of Sauce is a chain restaurant, however, this is one of the nicest place to go for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They do an amazing avocado on toast and really great pizza and burgers too. But its a great place to go and chill out at the weekend for brunch. It is also incredibly affordable and you get so much amazing food for the price. They also do great coffee and the interiors are also great. 

5. The Fire Station

Now this is one of mine and Sam's favourite place for dinner. We haven't actually had the brunch there before but I have heard so many amazing things about the bottomless brunch at the Fire Station. You have two hours to drink as much prosecco as you want as well as a choice of two or three courses. This is a great one for a special occasion such as a birthday or a day at the Cheltenham races so expect to get a little bit tiddled. For £30 for two courses and as much prosecco as you wish, is such a fab deal, considering you can often pay up to £30 for a bottle of prosecco on a night out. 






I really hope you enjoyed this post and find it helpful for if you ever visit Cheltenham...
