Something short and sweet today on the outfit front: these shots were taken a while back but as everything has been whirl-wind, crazy busy at the moment between a new role at my full-time job and fitting in blogging around family and friend's events, managing a household and planning for new home renovations as well as wedding planning, some-how this one slipped the net (sorry!)...

Off Duty Model Look - Denim and Boots with White Tee Street StyleAsos leather chelsea Boots on Fashion Blog Lurch hound Loves

So, I finally found the perfect pair of boots in fit, style and quality - say hello to my new 'Royal' boots from ASOS that also available in white. Weekends for me are always about running errands, so I love to wear a relaxed, but some-how smart style, with minimal make-up to give my skin a bit of a break, which equals my off-duty look...

Missguided Culottes Street Style - how to wear and Duster Coat Lurch Hound LovesName necklace and stripe top on fashion blog

It has to be said that culottes are one of the most flattering cut trousers on the market at the moment, as they cinch you in at the waist and then flare out to create a lovely silhouette and the illusion of a smaller waist, which, lets be honest, is something that we all wouldn't mind having now would we?! Plus, I will let you into a secret, this Missguided pair is now just £7 here...

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Review

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Review -Top Beauty Blog UK
Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream - *Fragrance Direct

Can we all just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful this Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream bottle is? Not only does this fragrance smell amazing, but the packaging is oh so divine too! Marc Jacobs new eau de toilette spray is new for summer 2014 and is an ethereal take on the original Daisy fragrance that was released back in 2007 - can you believe that 7 years has gone that fast already?!

A pale pretty blue hue with white flowers adorned on the bottle, Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream is a light, floral and fruity fragrance that has base notes of musk, coconut water and white wood with top notes of grapefruit, blackberry, jasmine, lychee and blue wisteria. I love this fragrance because I am a fan of musky and vanilla scents that also aren't too heavy and as a fan of all other MJ fragrances, it is only natural that I am a sucker for this one too!

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream is available in 30ml plus and prices start at £32.99. Have you tried this fragrance?

P.S Also, I have been short-listed to win the opportunity to report live at London Fashion Week for Yahoo Lifestyle, if you could please spare two minutes to vote for 'Charlotte Lewis' here, if would make my day. Thank you!
