OOTD- Soaking up the Sunshine

Hello Lovelies!

At the start of every summer holiday I always feel like it's going to last forever, but surprise surprise it always goes super quickly and suddenly you only have two more days of August left, which also means hardly any time to wear your summer wardrobe, boo :( So in these last couple of weeks of sunshine I've made sure to wear as many summer outfits as I can and wore this particularly tropical outfit to lunch with the girls last week...

Crop top- Topshop
Shorts- Miss Selfridge
Jacket- New Look
Pumps- Primark
Sunglasses- Primark
If you've been following my blog for a while or seen a few outfit posts then you might have realised there are few things I love more than high waisted bottoms and a cropped top. I think it's just a clothing combination that flatters my figure quite well as it shows the smallest part of your body without leaving you looking too naked!  It's also supposed to make your legs look longer which is always good for shorties like me. Anyway, I do like to dress up as though I'm actually on a tropical holiday sometimes and these ditzy print shorts, flower hair pin and floral sunnies are perfect for that. Then I just added my new cropped denim jacket and ballet pumps to make the whole thing a bit more British weather appropriate! Such a shame that next time I wear this outfit it will probably also include tights and a jumper.


I just went to work and had lunch with some friends today, but I'm very excited about my plans for tomorrow as me and the lovely Lydia are hitting Westfields in Stratford to do some major shopping, there are so many shops that we're having to make a short list of where we want to go, exciting times indeed. I'm really hoping to get a new hand/uni bag like the Zara tan shopper and also bite the bullet and buy some Origins skincare to see if it's really worth the hype. I'll probably spend lots of time writing my full wishlist whilst watching the Paralympic opening ceremony tonight!

Have a lovely night everyone,
Love Meg

Hey just to let you know I'm selling the eyeshadow palette on ebay for 99p if you are interested (you commented on a post about it on my blog!) it's not been used I thought it might as well sell it as I won't get round to using it! xxx http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/221115883559?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649#ht_500wt_1156

  13. You look lovely in this, hun. I'm a fellow shortie and so also a big fan of the high waist/crop top combo.
    So true, I spend all summer lusting after and stocking up on pretty warm-weather pieces but rarely have the chance to wear any of it unless tights are part of the equation!
