I’ve never really been one to wear much pink, but since this dusty pink trend came around a few months ago I was desperate to get something in it but couldn’t seem to find anything. I went shopping for some boring things like deodorant and shampoo, and I obviously ended up making some purchases which I absolutely DID need. This bomber was one of them.
Bomber Jacket- New Look | Top- Miss Selfridge | Trousers- H&M | Sandals- New Look | Bag- Zara
This Summer has been all about embellished and embroidered bomber jackets, and I didn’t think I needed one until I saw this one. Normally when I buy things, they sit in the bag with the tag on for a few days or weeks before I decide I want to keep it and actually wear it. I tried doing this with the bomber, but I ended up wearing it that day which really says something for me!
I’ve worn it non stop and I don’t know what I did without it. You can wear the most boring outfit consisting of black jeans and a black top, but throwing this jacket on just makes you look like you’ve actually made an effort.
I’ve definitely got to the point where I’m trying to restrain myself from buying a black one, so I really can wear it with everything. They’re the perfect jacket for Summer in London, and I totally get the hype.
A few weeks back, when the end of uni and deadlines weren’t imminent, me and the gals visited Lulworth Cove. As you may remember, my mum, nan and myself tried to visit Durdle Door a few months ago, but failed. Back then I was wearing a coat, scarf and tights so I thought it was only right to do a warmer outfit post from my second, very successful trip.
Dress- Boohoo | Converse | Bag- Primark
This year, I have been loving off the shoulder tops so I thought it was about time to upgrade to a dress. I found this cute dress on Boohoo and I thought it was perfect for the English summer or festivals! The fact that it’s just a black, off the shoulder dress makes it so wearable that you could probably even wear it in the winter, however, the multi-coloured pom-pom details give it such a cute edge. I can definitely see myself wearing this at Glastonbury. Speaking of Glasto, I should probably start planning my outfits….
I have tones of photos from this day, which will be a very postcard-esque heavy post!
As the sun comes out, the only place I really want to be in on holiday next to a swimming pool surrounded by palm trees, but alas, I’m still in the UK cracking out my pasty white legs at any opportunity I get.
Although living in Bournemouth in the sunnier months is the best, it’s not quite Greece. So as the old saying goes; if you can’t be next to the palm trees, BE the palm trees.
Top- Asos | Dress- Topshop | Denim Jacket- Primark | Bag- Primark | Converse
One second I was sitting in uni, staring out at the sun, and the next I was in my car on my way to the beach and I just don’t know how that happened…. In my defence, it was for research purposes but to be fair it did end up with Pimms and a Harvester (I know, classy gal aye?).
Even since I started following Anna Heaton on Instagram I have been totally obessed with her and everything 90s, which is pretty evident in this outfit. If you don’t already follow her you defo should, as I’m constantly lusting over her wardrobe and checking her Asos picks daily.
I caved a few weeks ago and finally bought my first pair of black Converse (I don’t know how I managed to be an emo without then, although I did have a really lovely green pair…). Another 90s inspired piece was this slip dress. At first I really didn’t like the whole dress-over-a-top thing, but now I think it’s really cool and easy.
The day these photos were taken, while in town my friend actually noticed there was a big ol’ hole the bum of the dress (big bum problemz), So I had to quickly had to swap it over in Topshop. I accidentally picked it up in a bigger size which was miles bigger than the other so I’m going to have to get my nan to take it up a few inches. I really love this dress though, as it’s quite different from what I would normally go for. Topshop are doing loads of different colours and patterns in this shape dress that I may need to take a peek of.
(P.s- Let’s not talk about how long I’ve been missing)
