Back to Work!

top: H&M CONSCIOUS | skirt: HAND ME DOWN| shoes: GOLDEN PONIES | sunglasses: ALDO | jewellery: VINTAGE 

Helloooo there! How's your week been? I hope you've all managed to catch a glimpse of the lovely weather! I'm currently sat writing this up in a pair of shorts, my skin radiating the scent of coconut sun-lotion...ahhhh summer is here!
This outfit was taken the other day, I've started working full time now and so I have little time for blogging which means I will be snapping and typing and posting whenever I have the time, which may mean sporadic posting, which I apologise for! But work is only temporary, I'll finish in time for starting my final year of University in October, but for the time being, I need to get some dolla for rent and for my lifestyle in which I totally live beyond my means...but it's summer.....so regular cocktail lunches are obligatory.....right?

Thanks for reading!

The Perfect Summer Bag

One of my wardrobe essentials for summer is a versatile bag. One I can use for shopping, day trips to a beach or picnic and one that will fit everything I need! This little ray-of-sunshine-of-a-bag is from Seasalt Cornwall one of my favourite ethical fashion brands. It comes in four colours, but this mustard yellow was my favourite, it's really roomy, has an inner zip pocket for the important stuff and a drawstring fastening. . . but best of all is the price . . . £16! 

I've been using it for about a month now and it's still in perfect condition, it's been one of my most thriftiest and practical purchases this year and I can definitely recommend it!

What do you look for in your perfect summer bag and have you found it yet? Comment below or tweet me at @dimplesdiaries !

Summer Basics

SHOES & SUNNIES: Aldo JEANS & TEE: H&M Conscious  

When it comes to fashion I'm quite a girly girl, but don't get me wrong, I still love throwing on a pair of jeans and a plain t-shirt every once in a while, especially when the jeans are made from recycled denim and the t-shirt is 100% organic cotton! I picked up these items from H&M's eco line, and although there's only a disappointing one style of jeans to choose from, there's plenty of basic tee's and vests made of entirely 100% organic cotton up for grabs which I most definitely took advantage of!

When the suns out, comfort is always number one on my list and this combo is great for running errands in the morning . . . black shades on and latte in hand. 
It's the perfect get-up-and-go outfit!

What's your go-to outfit on a summers day?

Eco Edit: Soy Candles

The other week while I was in Chichester, I stumbled upon Parkminster's candles in the store Bloomingville, the first thing I did of course was pick them up and smell them....ahhh they were all so amazing! The shop owner then told me that they were Soy candles, and began explaining why they are much better than regular candles...
So why Soy? Well, they burn for longer, are cleaner for the environment and your health, and Soybeans are a renewable source and are biodegradable. 

....Winner winner chicken dinner.

And all of their products seriously smell amazing! They come in lots of different fragrances; coconut, fig, grapefruit, lemongrass...and so much more. Mine is Meadow and it has a smell of fresh grass which fills the room with a really lovely natural scent, that's not too overpowering. I'm definitely going to be buying more of these candles, I also want to try out their saltscrubs, the grapefruit sounds amazing!

Let me know below or tweet me at @dimplesdiaries if you already use Parkminster, or now have them on your wish list!
