This Ted Baker dress is one of my favourite picks. It looks even better in real life, the only reason I haven't purchased it myself is that I don't suit knee length dresses! Sad face! This is a dress that should be worn to a special occasion such as a christening or the races as it really is very dressy up! The bodycon style bottom half of the dress ensures it accentuates the figure perfectly. I personally love the little diamanté gem detail on the shoulder, it gives it an added special occasion touch. Just be careful with that red wine!

While we're on the subject of Ted Baker, I'm loving the bright, patent products they've brought out recently. They've done a great range including purses, bags, flipflops, makeup bags, kindle covers, you name it they've got it. This striped bag comes with a pair of the flip flops inside so your getting both! This is really handy for the beach as they're both waterproof so won't matter if they get wet or dirty. This set is also bag on trend (see what I did there?) with the neon colours that are in at the minute, so add a touch of brightness to your holiday wardrobe.

A massive seller at are the Ted Baker purses and now this one has just gone in the sale! Loving the clasp openers also; two red, circular studs containing a little gold bow- so cute!

French Connection isn't known for its cheap prices that's for sure but this isn't too bad. This baby pink dress by French Connection is so pretty with its on trend peplum feature. This is a flattering shape with it being bodycon but if your feeling a little self conscious with the tightness, the peplum hides that area of the stomach. There is also a top version of this in the sale if you prefer that over a dress.

Converse have become so popular in the last couple of years and this Summer is no exception. I own a pair of classic navy ones but I've got my eye on this charcoal pair. What I love about them is that they're so versatile; this shade of grey can go with practically any colour and I wear my converse with everything in my wardrobe from skinny jeans, to a Summer dress. One of the best looks to wear Converse at the moment is with a tight Midi dress. This enables you to wear a dress you would normally wear at night and turn it into a casual daytime look.

How many pairs of jeans do you own? A lot I'm suspecting! Me too, and sometimes its hard to find a decent pair of skinnies. I personally hate when they go baggy and lose leg shape so a good quality pair of jeans are a must. Diesel are renowned for their trusted jeans brand however they're normally quite expensive. This pair have gone right down in the sale - what a bargain! They're called a 'jegging' but they're not your usual jegging so ignore that, they're just not a thick denim like some Diesel jeans are. If I owned this pair, I'd roll the bottoms up so they turn into a cropped pair and stick them with my converse for a nice Summer look.

Many of you might have never heard of Naomi Tsukishima, but the brand is worth a look as its full of girly, Summer designs. I love this floaty number, its meant to be a top but with a nice tan this could be worn as a dress. Now this would look very nice with heels for a girly, feminine feel at night but if your daring enough, a pair of Converse would totally transform this look into a sporty, casual daytime look that would scream uber cool. Just don't go wild with the colour - opt for a classic such as a black, white or charcoal.

My favourite brand of sunglasses is Ray Ban. Definately. This is the pair I have; an Original Wayfarer with a tortoiseshell pattern. Wayfarers and Aviators are once again the must haves of the season and have reduced all the prices! I bought this pair from House of Frazer for £130 last year so it kills for me to see the price that these have been reduced to. Don't be put off by the tortoiseshell pattern, I took mine on holiday earlier this year and wore them with everything. The Wayfarers are also available in different colours for a fun, playful alternative to the standard black.

If like me your going to a festival this year, the most obvious piece of attire is a pair of wellies. Hunters caught my attention back when I saw Kate Moss wearing them at a festival in a magazine. This put the brand on the map in terms of popularity for people who don't wear wellies on a day to day basis. You may think 'I'm not paying that for a pair of wellies' but I guarantee they are worth it. Last year when Creamfields was rained off and turned into a swamp, my black pair were my saviour. Because of the current neon trend, its most likely that the fields in which the festivals are held are going to be a sea of colours and this turquoise pair is perfect for your added contribution to the rainbow.

Back to French Connection, I could not leave out this pretty embellished dress. This has a really girly feel and made from 100% silk so not only gorgeous to look at but to touch too. The embellished details may make it slightly heavier but with it being made from silk, this will be light enough to keep you cool during the humid heat. Because so much is going on in the top half of the dress, I would advise hair to be worn up and off the shoulders. This will show the dress off to its full potential without having too much going on.
