It feels like I haven't done an outfit post in forever, basically because as it's now July I've been in the mood to do nice summery outfit posts, but in Britain July is apparently the month you have to get the winter wardrobe out again so I haven't had the chance to. However, yesterday we had a rare day of sunshine (well until it chucked it down haha) so I thought I'd grab the opportunity to adorn a ridiculously summery outfit and get some nice garden shots...
|Crop Top- Topshop|
Jacket- Miss Selfridge
Sandals- New Look
Sunglasses- New Look
This outfit is pretty much made up of my new bargain buys. For example, I got the shorts in the Topshop mid-season sale for £12 (£10.80 with student discount) down from £30! I'm so obsessed with anything of the peach/coral/orange variety at the moment and also anything high waisted as I think it's a very flattering shape for me, so these shorts had my name written all over them (well, not literally, that would be very odd) It's my first step into the pastel/candy denim world too and I'm loving it...so much so I've also now got the Topshop jeans in the same colour, but more on those later. Another thing I've being loving from Topshop is their crop tops. They were on a two for £10 offer when I got this white one (they're only usually £6 anyway) so I also have a black one. Originally I was just going to wear them for working out, but I actually love pairing them with high waisted bottoms, as they show just a nice amount of tummy and are perfect for when a bralet is a bit too revealing or when the bottoms aren't incredibly high waisted like these shorts. I then just added my trusty Miss Selfridge denim shirt/jacket for a bit of extra warmth and coverage and think this will definitely be one of my staple looks for summer.
|Nail Polish- 17 'Tropical Island' and Barry M foil effects 'Gold'|
The sandals and Jewellery were equally good bargain buys, as my Mum picked up the sandals for me for about a tenner from the 915 section of New Look because I only have size three feet, which is cheaper as you don't pay tax and the collar type necklace and bangles were just £5 altogether from Primark and I've had quite a few compliments on the necklace already. Gold detailing is my favourite thing to put with summer outfits so I love all these accessories and the beading on the sandals too. 17's 'Tropical Island' (another orangey coral, what a suprise!)and Barry M's foil effects 'Gold' are also fast becoming my new favourite nail polish combo.
What do you think of my first proper outfit of this summer? Have you seized the chance to wack out the summer clothes yet?
I had quite a fun morning today as I was helping my sister get ready for a wedding she was going to and I love any excuse to do people's make up! It was really nice to see her too as she lives in Portsmouth and doesn't come home very often. This afternoon I've just been chilling and working out with my boyfriend, then tonight I might be going to a club in town with my friends, but then again I might be boring and just go for girly predrinks as I'm working 9-5 tomorrow. Clearly I'm not a very hardcore student!
I hope you've all had a great week!
