An all-black outfit is something that I do not usually go near during the summer months as I can be the most fidgety person and cannot stand being the least bit uncomfortable, but this outfit is more than perfect for those nights out with friends whether it is dining al fresco or sipping on cocktails. This strappy vest hangs loosely making it a perfect summer top to wear casually to the beach or for a girly night out. I cannot wait to go to Italy with the Manfriend next week - I cannot believe it is drawing so near. The first and last time we went to his family hometown together was back in 2009 so I am more than looking forward to basking in the southern Italian sunshine as well as their warm and welcoming hospitality. People seem so easy-going in the south!

Keeping on topic with exciting life events, I am still feeling giddy at finding out that I was shortlisted for the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2013. I was really not expecting to make it to the shortlist with so many amazing bloggers around the UK and with 43,000 entries being submitted this year! I may have even cried a little happy tear as it means so much that enough of you lovelies nominated my blog to get me through to be included in the same category as blogs like Lulutrixabelle and What Olivia Did, AND my fellow Luxembourg girl, Kristiana. Thank you. If you have not yet managed to make your way over to the voting page here, please do so and vote for KaoriAnne in category 3 (Best Established Fashion Blog).
