Maybe it's the full page image of the girl prancing around on white sands with turquoise seas but I love this editorial. Granted, my French isn't quite at the level it was when I left school so I can't read the article fluently, but I do know it's all about how to get your body in shape for the beach.

The copy on the left hand page doesn't follow any set columns but I love that. There's a great mix of capitals, fonts and sizes which make the whole thing interesting to read but also cohesive. I always think that serif fonts remind me of high fashion magazines like Vogue and Elle because they're so classic and clean-cut. I also think the contrast of a completely full page of text and the lovely full page picture with that white border just brings the whole editorial together nicely.

This summer one of my cousins is getting married. I'm looking forward to it for many reasons and one of those reasons is definitely because it means I get to buy a new outfit. I've been thinking about it a lot recently, keeping my eye out in shops, so I thought I'd pull together a few outfits for you all to give me your opinions on your favourites.

I think the pale blue suit is a super cute and different way to dress for a wedding and I could definitely see myself picking that outfit for the summer!

I'm a massive fashion magazine hoarder. I don't think I've ever thrown one away. I always thought one day I'd find a use for them and today I have. I've decided to add a feature to the blog, where I focus on a particular campaign or editorial that I love. It means I'll be able to finally have an excuse to read through all my old issues, but it also means I'll have a nice collection of my favourites all in one handy place to look back for inspiration when I need it. YAY.

Today's Editorial Focus comes in the form of a Stella McCartney SS11 campaign shot, as featured in the March 2011 British Vogue. The first thing to note is my bias towards this campaign purely for the dress being worn in it. Since this botanical citrus pattern landed a few years ago, I have never gotten my fill. I just think it's so bright, fresh and summary. Combine this with the simplicity of the plain blue background and I think it just works brilliantly. However, what gives this campaign its edge is what they've done with the left hand image. The same model, the same pose, the same shoes, but this time the dress is replaced by close up cut-outs of the fruit featured in the dress. This highlights the most important thing of the dress; the pattern. I've never seen anything like this used in a campaign before but I just love it!
