It's late in the evening, glass on the side.

Dorothy Perkins floral midi skirt: c/o House of Fraser. Pink silk shirt: 75p, via charity shop. New Look heeled sandals. Urban Outfitters straw hat: £12. Brandy Melville thug life necklace: €6. Vintage belt: 20p, via charity shop. Vintage patent bag: 20p, via boot sale. Marc by Marc Jacobs bracelet: gift from Harriet. Topshop lip polish (this is the new season version).

It looks like taking photos at this sunflower field may become an annual tradition, and I am totally okay with that when it means that I can come home with locally grown blooms which perk up my early morning starts during the week. After lunch breaks perusing the rails at House of Hackney and reading Kim's blog, I've been pretty determined to work some tropical palm prints into my wardrobe, and whilst the HoH palm print dream remains up that pipe, I'm more than happy to take things the midi way with this beautiful Dotty P skirt from House of Fraser (and it's only £22, tell me that's not a bargain). I'm planning to wear it with my new black Bardot neckline top next time, but I think it works rather well with this hot pink silk vest top I picked up in a charity shop a couple of years ago, don't you think? Add in some more thrifty finds, and you've got a pretty me~ outfit, if on a rather girly day.

I prepped in true Cohen style for these photos by eating a massive two course meal at a pub down the road, and would truly recommend the seafood sharing platter if you're planning to head to a chef and brewer pub any time soon - those whitebait, you won't regret it. Finished off with a passionfruit cider and catching some rays in the beer garden, I really don't think that Saturdays come much better than this.

ps, don't forget to enter for your chance to win a Lilylulu kimono!

Evening sunset and Lilylulu giveaway.

Yes, that is a cropped blouse. I never thought I'd see the day either, but with time (and with obsessing over the Whitepepper's lookbooks) these things happen, and when Lilylulu said they'd like to send an item my way, I saw this pastel perfect blouse and just knew it had to end up in my wardrobe. Unfortunately you can tell that no amount of time spent in the gym is going to make a difference, and it is a little tight so it's going to end up in one of my friend's wardrobes, but it's such a beautiful piece that I'm jealous of whoever nabs it first - so please do size up to avoid disappointment. I find that it can be pretty tricky to style cropped items, so I decided to layer it over an old Topshop sale buy for an evening walk. I would have loved to accessorise with rose gold jewellery, however I'm lacking in that particular style so opted for fail-safe black, and really do like how it turned out.

fancy your chances?

Lilylulu were kind enough to offer not just me but you guys a little treat from their new collection. For your chance to win the Pia Long Floral Kimono (see how I'd style a long kimono here - they're super swishy and thus amazing) all you have to do is follow my blog via GFC (at the bottom of the page!) or bloglovinfollow Lilylulu on twitter, and leave a comment with some means of contacting you (either your email or twitter, for example) if you win - simple! I'll announce the winner in my post on Sunday 10th August.

The witching hour.

Asos lace smock dress: £14. Urban Outfitters straw hat: £12 (not online, but they still have them in the Spitalfields store). Selected Femme heels: c/o Logonstyle. Pandora bracelet, via Joshua James Jewellery. Vintage leather belt: 20p, via charity shop. Topshop really ruby lipstick. Barry M navy nail varnish.

There are definitely some unintentional witchy vibes in this outfit: let's just say the storms have awakened something in me. That, or not getting much sleep and then forcing myself to the gym puts me in a foul mood, which is probably much more likely. After a late night asos order found itself on my bed after spending the weekend celebrating Jazmine's 22nd, it was a case of bedroom catwalk, and I knew exactly how I wanted to style this lace smock dress. Sometimes I forget that when asos say oversized they mean that it's quite plausible for you to attempt to get two of you in it (tip: size down), so I can't quite work the boho babin' vibes that the model shows, and instead went to the best twenty pence purchase of my life (other than a Freddo) to nip it in at the waist and prove that I'm not actually six months gone. Moving on from the dress I decided to pop on my bargain urban outfitters sunhat and Selected Femme heels. It was a bit weird to have the elevation after falling out of the habit of wearing high heels on my Saturday night ritual (maybe I am a witch, my cauldron just contains a double vodka lemonade), but these babies are just too perfect to leave in their box for any time longer than absolutely necessary. A slick of red lipstick later, and, really, I think these witches knew they were totally onto a good thing...
