I've spoken a little about my hunt to define my style lately, so when I was introduced to the Boohoo Style Squads I was straight in there filling out the quiz. I love a good quiz and waste many an hour on Buzzfeed finding out just what kind of cheese I really am and which Disney character represents me most (spoiler alert, it's Marie from the Aristocats) so the idea of a quiz that would actually help me solve one of my constant dilemmas was not to be sniffed at. At first I wasn't too sure what squad I'd end up in, but in the end I really wasn't all that surprised at the Girly result. I'm always adding girly touches to my outfits, be it with a splash of floral print, a flirty dress or a pop of pink. I've included the quiz below if you fancy checking out your Style Squad, let me know your results in the comments!

I wasn't kidding when I said that midi dresses were going to be one of my summer staples. In fact, looking back at my previous outfit posts it's becoming apparent that bomber jackets and lace-up shoes are also becoming much-loved pieces in my wardrobe! I can't help but wish I was wearing this floaty number walking down the beach as I think it'd make the perfect cover up during the day, as well as being a bit of a boho dream for the evenings. My intended October holiday hasn't been booked yet, but the plans are definitely coming together and this dress will definitely be coming with me.

The bomber has been the perfect jacket for our supposed summer, being light enough that I won't melt but being substantial enough to provide a bit of protection from that persistent breeze. I've rambled about my love of blush tones a lot in the past few months and this little number is no different. I love wearing it with rose gold accessories and I doubt I'll ever get bored of the combination, even if I wear this necklace combination nearly all the time. It adds the perfect edgy-yet-girly touch to any outfit, which is a winner in my eyes.

This is also the first debut of my ever so slightly different hair, which you probably didn't even notice. I've been rocking a bit of a shorter cut lately, which is a little longer than a bob, as well as a slightly blonder ombre to fit the new length. I definitely prefer my hair long, but it desperately needed the chop and it's nice to try something a little bit new! Hair will always grow back, anyway.

In other news, have I mentioned that it's my birthday tomorrow? Yes, I'm joking, I know I've barely shut up about it. I'm feeling a little bit like a kid on Christmas Eve right now and I'm full of excitement about spending the day with my favourite people and dancing the night away. Can you believe this baby face is actually turning 21?
