OOTD: Havana Nights

Wednesday night is Salsa night here in Manchester! Instead of the usual black ensemble favoured by dancers, last Wednesday I opted for something a bit more Eye-catching…This orange crop top from Miss Selfridge did just the trick and worked perfectly with my khaki harem pants to stay cool in the underground salsa bar. Accessorised with this pineapple necklace from Primark it was perfect for showing off the remainder of my ballroom tan!

#cubanstyle Wishlist: Monochrome


I love shopping and I’m very excited for spring to arrive and bring with it some warmer weather! I have put together a wishlist of items that I’m lusting over at the moment – put together they make a gorgeous monochrome look! The full white skirt is inspired by the classic Cuban look of the 50’s teamed with a more modern-cut crop top to bring the look up to date. I love that the halter neck on this top gives it a sexy latin edge! The black sandals are almost an exact copy of my latin dance shoes with the crossed straps and silver detail so I will definitely be adding these to my collection for the summer months! I personally would wear this look with simple make up – a sultry flick of eyeliner, bronzer and a slick of bright red lipstick, Charlotte Tilbury of course, which would tie in beautifully with this bargain envelope clutch bag. The perfect look for hot summer evenings in the city…if only they would hurry up and arrive!

Crop top – River Island £24.99

Skirt – New Look £19.99

Bag – Dorothy Perkins £10

Feline Flick Eyeliner – Charlotte Tilbury £22.99
