Lookbook #suitandplayupWhen it comes to summer dressing festival style has been a huge influence, over my wardrobe this season. Sometimes there's no better way than to gather inspo. from the festival go-ers themselves. From the likes of Coachella to Glastonbury.
The thing about "festival dressing" that I love so much is the ease and comfort of styling these pieces. As despite style and channeling your inner 'free-spirit', comfort is key when dancing along to your favourite band of all time in the summer sunshine.
When Missguided contacted me to style up a playsuit of theirs, for their #suitandplayup, I decided to go for this cream crochet number. The simplicity of it makes it a dream to style, as it's such a versatile piece. From pairing with fringe kimonos to oversized leather jackets and biker boots- the possibilities are endless. For this particular look I went for the (Zara) kimono that has stolen my heart, a paisley print back-pack (practical yet stylish), topped off with a retro pair of sunglasses and (of course) a pair of comfy shoes (or wellies depending on the weather). Now all I need now is a festival to get into the full-swing of things...*Kimonos and wellies at the ready.*
P.S There's still time to vote for Style Peaches as "Best Established Fashion Blog" at the Cosmo blog Awards. It would honestly mean the world to me if you voted for my little ol' blog! Thank you so much if you do - you can vote here!

Missy decided she also wanted to be a part of the #AngelTribes....
When a email popped into my inbox from the lovely ladies at Thierry Mugler Angel Fragrance, asking me to gather my closest friends to celebrate their #AngelTribes movement, and capture our style and strength in a selfie. I simply couldn't resist inviting a couple of my 'nearest and dearest' round, for a catch-up and festival/summer inspired "selfie-shoot"- *queue donning a floral head crown or two*.
My tribe consists of my friends Lulu (on the left) and Emily (on the right) both girls are ones who always make me end up, in fits of laughter (sometime uncontrollable!) But also are such caring people who always have my back, whether thats through a text or a chat over a coffee.
When it comes to our style we each love to try out different trends, from the latest hair accessory to the newest pair of shoes, but still agree that comfort is key when getting dressed up.
Personal style wise, this probably comes as no surprise, but I always seem to (almost subconsciously) turn to the 60's for inspiration. This sometimes ranges from channeling the Mod Look to looking like a "festival-goer" at Woodstock - oversized kimonos and all! I feel that blogging has definitely made me 'embrace' this, by pushing the boundaries with how I style pieces and the items in which I purchase.
When discussing our own personal style Emily would say she would describe hers as high street with a touch of vintage, taking inspiration from the actress Zooey Deschanel. If I was to describe her in a outfit it would definitely be a vintage tea dress paired with her burgundy doc martens- which she adores to pieces! Lulu would describe hers as floral inspired, often opting for pretty patterns and lighter colours,. If I was to describe Lulu in a outfit it would definitely be something along the lines of frilly and floral, with a high street/feminine feel.
Thierry Mugler have not only asked me to share my "tribe-selfie" but also to share yours, through the #AngelTribes hashtag on your blog and/or social media pages. To share the love and celebrate your very own tribe of your closest friends.
I hope your've enjoyed todays slightly different, more personal post! Don't forget to share your #AngelTribes selfies as I would love to see them!
Last, but not least, I leave you with a outtake. #sillyfacealert....
Post done in collaboration with Thierry Mugler, but how could I not resist a selfie with my friends!
