Easy does it

Here there are again...the H&M shorts I love so much. I know it's obvious - because I wear them pretty much all the time but I will tell you this - money very well spent. Slouchy, soft and as I have previously mentioned, a toe-dip into the denim short trend without needing to reveal arse cheeks.

Perfect stuff.

So this is what I wore to the mall for lunch in Carluccio's and supermarket shopping. It's all glam round here, isn't it? :p






Shorts: H&M
Tee: Cheap Monday
Jacket/blazer: GAP (not worn for long)
Shoes: Tory Burch (new!!! Got these from shopbop.com and they delivered in 2 days! From USA to UAE - incredible)
Sunglasses: Gucci

I am getting my hair colour sorted tomorrow. I feel like it's been sometime since I had a good dye job and I am hoping for something akin to Lindt 80% chocolate - ie, a dark, cool brown.

This is what it looks like in direct sunlight at the moment...I don't hate it, it's warm and quite vibrant but I am craving that refreshed feeling that comes from some fresh colour.

Lengthwise I am not touching it. It's finally getting to the length I want it and I am not letting any scissor happy hairdresser interfere with that!
























Hope your Friday goes well...

I am going to settle down and read Ahlan! magazine (i.e, trash gossip), paint my nails with CND Effects in Gold Sparkle and sip my cappuccino which I can already tell was made with full fat rather than skimmed milk....ugh, don't you just hate that? :) 


I'll try and make more of an effort with my outfit tomorrow but I'm not going to dress up especially for blog photos so don't be surprised if it features these bloody shorts :)

  1. Are your Tory Burch flats comfortable enough to wear right out of the box? I've always hesitated when buying them because I hear they're hard to break in! Do you just have feet of steel? :)

  3. I went into Tory Burch in London the other day and I could've happily had everything in the shop! :) I'm going to take a look at shopbop now! ;)

  4. @AmyRoto - not at all. the back of my foot is super sensitive and has scars from previous shoe break-ins. Tory Burch Reva's (at least the leather ones) are out-of-the-box friendly. no training required :)

    @Mania - you too!


    @glamour rouge - ooh i have never been in the shop in the UK. shopbop is the way forward although it's great that the UAE = no tax too :)

  12. I love your hair colour there- it summery and warm- know how nice it is to have sleek glossy just died hair though!

    My denim shorts of the summer came from Oasis. I loved them so much I bough a second pair in the sale. I also bought the shorter short version too. Hello, my name is Emma and I have a shopping problem! xx

  15. Dubai is looking great. I like the way you've got your hair slightly pulled back in these pics. My natural hair is finally growing too (it seems there may be something in the mane n tail hype)but now I find myself craving volume. I think hair happiness is a bit of an elusive goal!

  16. I don't blame you for loving these shorts, denim shorts that don't show off bum cheeks are a rarity...should have got my hands on some of these!

  17. I was just thinking your hair colour looks great and was going to ask you what colour it was :) Having a fresh dye job is also great as the season changes. Can't wait to see your new hair!

  18. Laura, Your face has this amazing tan. It's not too orangey and not to ashy. It's just the right golden tan. May I ask what Bronzer you use? By THE WAY, I love your Gucci Shades ;)

  22. Super cute, chic and comfy..my kind of ensemble. I'm not sure if I missed them or not, but did you already post about the cute studded shorts you got for your birthday?? I was so looking forward to seeing them :) Happy Friday Gorgeous!!

  23. Lindt 80% chocolate is a *perfect* description for the colour I want!

    Assuming I can resist eating it first, I may have to take a bar along to my hairdressers next week. ;0)

  24. I was just thinking I was going to comment how much I love your hair colour, but then I read how you are going to change it! Ah well, FWIW it looks great now, but I think cool brown would look gorgeous too. I constantly switch between warm and cool brown shades, and I know what you mean about freshly dyed hair - it's so much glossier and even

  25. Everytime I see you post a pic with that watch I want to ask where you got it from, so i've decided to actually ask! Could you tell me where it's from please? It's lovely x

  26. Ah Dubai Marina, a fave spot of mine :) I've had many a photo taken at that railing, and many a milkshake from the Johnny Rockets down there. Love your outfit too, of course.x

  27. Laura, you hair looks so lovely and shiny!! Looking forward to seeing the new colour. How long are you staying in Dubai?

    Oh and I'm sooo wanting these shorts!! They look too comfy not to! ;) xoxo

  31. hi Laura!
    I really like the fact that your blog posts are genuine, meaning, I prefer that you don't dress up only for them:) It's nice to see what you wear "normally", and you always look fab, either in a more casual outfit or a more sophisticated one! Your hair is looking great, cant wait to see the new color! Share with us please, what shade? I'm always on the hunt for the "perfect brown hair color" lol..
    Have a great weekend, xxx, Karine.

  32. Still love these gorgeous sunglasses!

  33. I love how you compared a hair color to chocolate. And my hair dresser is always trying to convince me to cut my hair too but it took me a long time to get my hair this length and I can rarely part with even a little. :)

  34. You're really loving cheap monday :-).
