Around this time every year I always buy into summer trends, then hardly get to wear what I buy because it's not warm enough or their not practical enough! So this year when I hit the Topshop mid season June sale I solved this issue by buying the orange candy denim I'd been lusting after in both shorts and jeans. I've already showed you how I styled the shorts for a day in the sun in this post- ootd-top-of-crops, but I thought I'd shown you how I adapted that look for more typical rainy day at work...
Sandals- New Look
Jacket- Miss Selfridge
Necklace and bangles- Primark
If you look at the summer shorts ootd you will see that I've pretty much just changed the crop to a regular top and worn my jeans instead of shorts, whilst keeping other things similar like the sandals and gold jewellery (I can't get enough of Primark collar necklaces at the moment) so I still felt like it was summer! I love the candy denim trend so I think it's a shame if it's only worn on hot, casual days and as the shorts and jeans only cost me about £30 together in the sale I don't even feel too guilty about owning multiple orange items...I'm also really happy with how the jeans fit as they're a good skinny fit and a nice length with a slightly high waist which makes them quite flattering and I usually really struggle to find comfy jeans that fit me nicely.
I've had a really nice week so far as I went shopping with the girls on Monday (expect a mini-haul soon), went to a friend's BBQ yesterday and spent today practising my friend's bridal make up which I'll be doing for her wedding. I've also been getting quite into my healthy eating and fitness this week as my boyfriend's now working in London so I have more free time to make a fool of myself dancing around to work out DVD's, in fact I've just ordered the 30 day shred so there might be a few health related features coming up soon (If I manage to keep it up for longer than a week that is!)
I hope you're all having a lovely week too,
