June favourites: style & beauty

Style & beauty wish list: June

This month, style wise, I am ALL about dresses, flats and sunglasses.

With a little bit of a tan now on my legs from my recent holidays (more about our trip to Greece coming very soon!) as well as some superb weather here in the UK, I want to put away my jeans and sweaters and wear something completely different.

Something cooler than trousers, but still stylish and yet practical. As well as not being too dressy during the week.

I am also digging a bit of colour this month too – trying to shy away from my staple stripes and greys – instead opting for corals or golds, paired with navy.

Here are some of my style & beauty favourites from around the high street this month:

Style & beauty for June: top high street picks

This Boden dress £49.50 is perfect for daytime style and is super for dressing up or down. I love the shape and the colour.

These Prada Sunglasses are a little extravagant – but sunglasses are worth a bit of investment. These ones from The Sunglasses Hut £151.80 are perfect for a hint of glamour for the school run, or running errands!

I absolutely adore the colour of this Joules bag £59.95 – that bag would be ideal for everything a busy Mum needs…for work meetings as well as days out with the family.

I love simple jewellery and adore this Necklace at Topshop £9 – it is exactly my kind of style.

I live in Espadrilles in the summer months, they are the perfect shoe for running around after my twins, and these ones by Office £28 are reasonably priced and really cute.

I love these limited edition GHD straighteners £130 – how cool! Mine need updating, I have had them years. Great item for holidays and weekends away.

June style and beauty favourites

This Givenchy perfume at Boots £44 looks lovely, and I am definitely in need of a new summer fragrance.

The Straw hat by New Look £7.99 is ideal for when the heatwave returns once more!

Benefit Big Beautiful Eyes Kit at Boots £25.50 is one of my favourite beauty products and I love the shades especially for the summer.

Pimm’s! What says summer more than this amazing drink. This BBC good food recipe is ideal for our summer dining al fresco.

I wore a similar dress to this one shown above on holiday, by Next £24, and I got some compliments on it. It felt so stylish but covered up my tummy area which I loved. So I want this one too!

These ASOS espadrilles £22 are so cool – with a metallic contrast to jazz up an outfit!


I know that some of these above will quickly make it into my wardrobe really soon!

Love, Jess x

    I love the Boden dress and the black espadrilles, they’re gorgeous! I’d love to start wearing dresses more but now I’ve finally got a week off the weathers turned terrible and we have constant rain! 🙁 I’m dying to wear some floaty dresses with sandals and a big floppy hat! It looks like you had a wonderful time in Greece (from your instagram), I’m looking forward to hearing more about it.

    I love the Boden Dress and oooh those GHDs I have the pink pair just like that and I love them, people try to sell other brands but you cant beat GHD to me they are the best. I have a real thing for sunglasses they are a must, and I like to change them too, Chris goes mad, but cheaper than a face lift ha ha. Great list Jess x

    I love the Boden dress and the sunglasses, they are gorgeous. Unfortunately the weather has been so bad the past week or so that I don’t feel summery at all, in fact I have gone back to wearing winter shoes
