The Look Show

So I’m entering The Look Show AW11 blog competition to be the best blogger in the Universe!! They have asked me why I want to win so here goes!…

Littleladylookbook is a blog for the real girl, I show real fashion and inspiring outfit ideas, all which I would wear myself. From my first little post blogging on Littleladylookbook about Mulberry’s new range during Christmas last year to posting about the latest crazes from fashion week I’ve sure come a long way. I’m sure my readers can vouch that I give them up to date information on the latest trends, new additions to have in your seasonal wardrobe that I know they will love, reviews and information about the latest hot spot boutiques (Why give all the big companies all the credit?!) all as well as little text as possible (If I don’t like reading I’m sure you lot won’t!) plus a few added extras from me to give my blog a more personal touch. How many bloggers can actually say they never take anything off the internet that isn’t theirs and hasn’t been given to them? Not many! I search high and low for the latest fashions to give you!

In less than a year I’ve gained a high profile on Twitter and developed my posts into what readers want – An inspiring picture and a little information – It can go a long way to influencing what a girl wears and how someone feels and that’s what my blog is all about. I even add a mens post from time to time!

Save a seat for me front row and I’ll show you how fashion can be blogged to the real girl!

Summer Trends

 3 Trends I’m Loving This Summer…

And think you should too!

1.

 They are so laid back and casually stylish which makes them incredibly difficult to get wrong!

Shirts from M&S, Jane Norman, Mint Velvet, La Redoute

2.


Whenever I buy new trends I tend to neglect my bottom half, instead opting for the basics like jeans, skirts or chinos – these patterned shorts can go with my basic wear this summer and incorporate the trend in a new way than before – great for festivals too!

Shorts both from Yogoego

3.

What would we do without them in the summer sun?!

Sunglasses from Internacional, Primark, Accessorize, Jacamo SS11 menswear

Bikini Bonanza

It’s holiday season!

Whether you’re after a bikini to cover, to flaunt, to play sports or just relax, here are my picks of the most flattering, useful and cute beach wear around!

***

Pretty In Pink

For the Girly Girl

The ruffles will add texture and detail where you are the most slimline and where you will want to attract the most attention – the shoulders and collarbone, with the extra detail giving weight on the thighs too to boyish shapes. You can remain tan line free with the slip of the shoulder strap in this ASOS bikini and this colour really brings out a tan wonderfully a perfect bikini for an exotic summer vacation.

ASOS Petal Ruffle One Shoulder Bikini Top £16 & ASOS Petal Ruffle Tie Side Bikini Pant £12

For the beach conscious…

But not afraid of colour

This bold blue swimsuit is perfect for those who aren’t ready to get their tummy out but don’t want a boring tummy hugger in subdued colours! The smooth layered front detail will hide a multitude of sins and give your tummy a toned appearance without ever having to hit the gym.

Control Swimsuit £27, Kaleidoscope

For the…Floozie

In retro flower power prints

This Frill halterneck top will add an extra cup size onto the less endowed and add some booty to the bottom half too. The cute rose print is ultra feminine for lazying by the pool and with the lace is a bit more dressed up  than your normal silky textured plain patterened bikini.

Rose frill top £20 rose frill pant £14 Floozie By Frost French

For the Sports fanatic

Simple yet sexy

I love the modern twist front top of this bikini and love how retro the colour is too. The thick sides are perfect for those wanting a little extra cover up and the top is as small as they go for bandeau styles ,yet is supporting at the same time with its tight back, perfect for shell collecting or Volleyball!

Bikini from Urban Outfitters

For the ones who take pool side fashion to another level

This funky printed all in one with chest split is for the fashionista in all of us! I love the tropical print and retro design. I prefer to have an even tan, but for those who aren’t too fussed this is perfect. The supportive cups and thicker straps are perfect for swimming or playing sports on the beach and makes a nice change to the skimpy numbers seen everywhere at the moment including on here!

Urban Outfitters

For the poolside reader

And hard-core tanner

Again…no strap lines! At one time the spaghetti straps we all the rage, thank heaven the bandeau has made its grand come back and is available to all those who don’t want the ugly ‘white bits’ anymore! The rose pattern is stunning, and with the white background it really makes the colours pop for a tropical/vintage feel.

ASOS Tapestry Rose Print Bandeau Bikini Top & ASOS Tapestry Rose Hipster Bikini Pant

For the Playful and chic

If you’re lucky enough to want to make yourself look bigger in the sun then this ruffle bikini is for you. The simple black colour is perfect for everyday and the tie straps on the briefs are perfect if you’re going all-inclusive! The ruffles will add more body and the pretty bow in the middle adds a lovely girly touch if you think black is too harsh.

Miso Ruffle Bandeau Bikini £22.99, Republic

If you’ve got it, flaunt it!
