FIVE HAPPY THINGS

FIVE HAPPY THINGS / LAUREN ROSE STYLE BLOGGER LONDON / LIFESTYLE POST
I've been stuck in a bit of a creative rut recently, hence the lack of blog posts and instagram photo's. I have been generally struggling for inspiration and feel like I have nothing to post about. I hope I am not the only one that has ever felt like this?! Life has sort of taken over a bit and I think my brain feels just too darn busy to come up with new blog post idea's and content.

Instead, I thought I would write up a different post from me today, so no fashion post here but instead I am going to share five things that are making me happy right now..

1. HOLIDAY ~ In just over a month I am off to Italy for a week with my boyfriend and I could not be more excited about it. I really feel like I am in need of a holiday, some time away to really relax. We are staying in Sorrento so we are also planning to do a little bit of exploring, with a day trip here and there to Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius, Positano and maybe even a boat trip to Capri. I am sure lots of pizza, pasta, ice-cream and wine will be consumed and hopefully I will return with a bangin' tan as currently I am as white as a ghost. 

2. MOVING ~ In a couple of week's I will be moving flats for the third time since moving to London and I am extremely excited for the change. I will be leaving my current flatmate's behing and I am really sad that I won't be living with my best friend anymore, but I will be moving into a new flat with my boyfriend. I'm going to be starting to clear out and pack up my flat this weekend in preparation which also excites the organisational person within me and excited to have a new space to make our own. 

3. LONDON ~ I wanted to include London in this list because I have been feeling really settled and happy here recently. Living in London away from my family and best friends in Scotland has always been hard, but since my boyfriend moved down a couple of months ago, I feel so much more content living here. 

4. FAMILY ~ Last weekend I went to my cousin's baby shower back in Scotland and it was the nicest day. My cousin lives in Abu Dhabi so I hadn't seen her since she has been pregnant so it was so amazing to see her with her bump. We played fun baby shower games, literally showered her in gifts, ate cake and just had the loveliest day. Even though I live at the other side of the country, coming home for family event's as often as I can get up is so important to me and I came back to London feeling oh so happy.

5. FRIENDS ~ Last night I had a dinner and wine night with my favourite girls and I made a chicken pie for the first time ever. I used a Body Coach recipe, so it was slightly on the healthier side but it tasted amazing. V proud of myself. Chilled Friday nights spent chatting, eating and drinking with friends are the best.

I hope you enjoyed a little bit of a different post from me today, I would love to know what is making you happy right now?! 

Until Next Time, Lauren Rose x

The Rose Dress

When I found this rose printed dress in Primark, I knew it had to be mine. My name is Lauren Rose after all and roses actually happen to be my favourite flowers. So it was a very fitting find indeed.

I took these outfit photo's a couple of weeks ago whilst on a Sunday trip to Columbia Flower Market, my favourite way to spend a Sunday in London. I picked myself up a Peace Lily, which I have managed to actually keep alive and healthy thus far.

This was the perfect casual dress for a sunny day out in London. When I first bought this dress, I was apprehensive about wearing it for the first time, as I wasn't used to wearing a midi style dress. However this dress has officially converted me. I love it so much. It is fast becoming my most worn summer dress. The weather in London has been extremely warm and humid recently, so I have been reaching for this dress constantly. I have been wearing it with my classic white trainers from Nike, keeping the overall style of the outfit really casual.

I also can't share these photo's without talking about this dreamy basket bag from Bohemia Design. I am in love. It is the perfect bag for summer and surprisingly manages to fit a lot of stuff in it. Although I will admit that actually the only downfall of a basket bag is that it does tend to scratch your leg when you walk... All in the name of fashion right? I have done a full blog post on my basket bag collection and sharing lots of other amazing basket bags available to shop now ~ here ~ if you fancy a read.

 I would love to know what you think of this outfit!

WRAP IT UP

The Zara Wrap Top / Lauren Rose Style Blog Fashion London // Street Style OOTD
Oh the famous wrap top from Zara that has found it's way into every girls wardrobe recently. I just had to get my hands on one and try it out for myself. I have to say, they are not as easy to tie as you would think, I have definitely had to try multiple times, every time I have worn it. Other than my inability to tie a bow on a top, this top ticks all the boxes for me. It has stripes, it is comfy and the most important fact, that it is the most flattering crop top I have ever worn. Can you tell I am a lil bit in love with it?

It is the perfect smart-casual top and the versatility factor allows me to wear it to work, as well as on an evening out with friends. I have paired it with my favourite Mom jeans from Topshop (shop here), some nude mules from H&M (similar here) and some sassy earrings from H&M, as well as my go-to black bag from M&S (shop here)

A bit of a short but sweet post today, I actually really just wanted to share this outfit and these images with you all! I am currently having a lovely lazy Sunday after a busy weekend and slowly melting away in this London heat. Not complaining though as I am loving how nice and sunny it has been recently. Hope you are having a lovely weekend too!
