Summer Styling With Sister Jane

Summer is probably my favourite time of year and one of the things that I love the most is creating lovely outfits to wear for the season. This year, London has been extraordinarily hot. We don’t usually have a ‘traditional’ Summer as such so dressing for the heatwave has been a bit of a challenge lately. I sound so British, don’t I? 

Since launching iambecca.com last year, my style has evolved; I take more risks, wear bold colours, clashing prints and unusual textures. That’s not to say that I don’t still adore minimal outfit styling, I do, but each day is different. This new found confidence has lead me to discover new ways of pulling items together as well as new brands; Sister Jane being one of them. The Notting Hill-based brand creates vintage-inspired designs with a sprinkle of eccentricity and a nod to the retro style. Its signature aesthetic is colourful, unique and fresh – right up my street!

So, if you’re after something a bit different in your wardrobe this Summer, have a look at these…

@huesofwhite: How To Create A Beautiful Instagram Feed

Back in 2017 when I started to take my blog more seriously I came across Santina’s account and instantly fell in love. It was aspirational, curated and beautiful; I was desperate to meet the woman behind @huesofwhite. We agreed to meet for brunch earlier this year and it was amazing. You know when you click with someone immediately and you just know you’re going to be part of each others lives? That’s what I felt when we met. I was not only in awe of her fashion and blog but the fact she was the mother of two young children too. I still don’t know how she juggles it all!

When I started this blogging series, I knew Santina would be perfect for this post talking all about creating a beautiful Instagram profile. So, earlier this Summer we caught up and I got the low down on her top tips, where she finds her inspiration and the future of huesofwhite.com.

How To Dress For Summer In The City

Figuring out how to beat the heat in a city is not easy. London has experienced an incredible heatwave over the last month and I have felt totally unprepared. From sweaty tube commutes to stuffy, humid offices – it’s not fun. I can vouch for that. England is never this warm and with a serious lack of aircon in the city I’ve resorted to a seriously savvy dress code. So, it’s bub-bye to body-hugging layers and hello to breathable fabrics and some smart style solutions. Are you struggling too? Read on…

@jcjlifestyle: How I Got 10k Instagram Followers

Welcome to my new blog series. I decided to launch it because I often get asked questions about my social media channels and my blog; my tips, tricks and advice. I thought I’d combine my advice with someone else who is absolutely smashing it. Each post will include invaluable advice from another blogger.

So, to kick off with the first post I thought I’d tackle one of my most frequently asked questions; how do I grow my Instagram account?

I got in touch with blogger and friend @jcjlifestyle who has recently exceeded 10,000 Instagram followers. In the first six months of this year, Jasmine’s following has grown by a staggering 175% so she’s definitely doing something right! Find out how in my latest post…

Wedding season is now well underway and if you’ve not already, it’s now time to think about the perfect outfit to fit the occasion. I’m excited to be attending a couple this year, but with each celebration begs the question, but what do I wear? Whilst I’m well known for being a dress hoarder; I’d happily buy a new one for each one, it’s important not to splash the cash when I don’t need to. That’s why I’ve pulled together six of my favourite dresses to not only wear to all the weddings you’re attending this year but throughout the Summer too! And what’s more, they’re all under £100.

The styles I’ve chosen fit my wedding guest criteria; colourful, girlie, below the knee and versatile. So, whether you’re planning on heading to a wedding this Summer and want to look on point scan through these as I’m sure they’ll be something that fits the bill…
