Tropical Team Spirit

Baseball Vest - BANK
Bicycle Shorts - Asos
Gold Chain - River Island
Jumper - Primark
Plimsolls - Primark
Sunglasses - Asos
Bum bag - Primark
Watch - Fossil

So I might have got the wrong sport here with my baseball vest while the World Cup is in full flow, but I am a sucker for the sports trend, and I particularly love this tropical baseball vest! 

Along with the amazing pattern, this vest is perfect for a chilled Glastonbury outfit (yes I am going to Glastonbury - so excited!!). Especially since I am enduring a 12 hour bus journey to get there, meaning the vest and bicycle shorts combo will be a comfortable outfit for me. Also bringing in a bit of a 90's feel with the scrunchie and bicycle shorts which I love!

Hopefully the weather stays sunny for Glasto... wish me luck!

My Playsuit Picks

After being treated to some sun this weekend, I finally managed to dig out some Summer clothes from the back of my overflowing wardrobe, in particular, some playsuits. Personally, I have a bit of an obsession with playsuits mainly because they are so versatile - comfortable for the day time but easily dressed up for night! Below are a couple of my favourite playsuits at the moment...

1. Culture Crush

A key trend in the lead up to Summer shows a global influence focusing on culture - aztec patterns, beaded embellishments, rich embroidery - with a tribal feel coming to the forefront. I love this trend as I feel it's perfect for Summer and it often reappears year after year around this time. This is why I hate throwing out clothes (hence my overflowing wardrobe) as this was actually a purchase made last Summer but I've styled it up with a leather jacket as this year the trend is taking a more modern turn. 

Playsuit - Boohoo
Leather sleeveless jacket - New Look
Boots - Internationale
Choker - Ebay

2. Feminine Florals 

Again this is a purchase made quite a while ago but I love the pattern with florals out in full force leading up to Summer. I've tried to pick up the mix of greys and purples in the playsuit with the metallic shoes, which again is a key trend around at the moment. As always I love a bit of a bargain, picking up these gorgeous heels in the sale!


Playsuit - Oh My Love
Necklace - New Look
Shoes - Kurt Geiger

3. Pure & Simple

Playsuit - Missguided
Headpiece - Miss Selfridge
Sandals - Primark

Sometimes keeping it simple is the way to go and I think this is the case with this pretty pink playsuit from missguided. I love the pastel colour (perfect for Summer) but I also love the soft layering effect at the front that gives it a bit of detail and texture. Another obsession right now is headpieces that bring a change from the standard jewellery to something a bit more interesting!

Hope you all enjoyed the sunshine...

Topshop Temptation

So... the credit card is being used and abused once again. Recently I've been trying to stay away from the shops/online shopping in an attempt to save but all the Summer clothes are just too tempting! A prime example is this bodycon dress from topshop - amazing print, cut out sections and a perfect fit - what more could I ask for?

I've styled this in a way which is a bit more casual as I think the hat and the shoes/socks compliment the summery pattern but I will probably be dressing this up with heels too!

Bowler Hat - Forever 21
Dress - Topshop
Socks - Miss Selfridge
Shoes - Daisy Street

As usual I buy things on impulse and not when I actually need it so someone please give me a good excuse to wear this!

All White Everything

As much as I love bright and vibrant colours for Summer, my favourite hue at the moment has to be white. But not just white, all white everything! A key trend for Summer ('white on white') welcomes the layering of white coloured items, which I am loving at the moment. Even though I've not really tried the layering effect in this post, adding a blazer or outer layers would work perfectly with the textured crochet dress!

Dress - H&M
Flower headband - ebay
Shoes - Daisy Street
Necklace - Fossil

My latest obsession for Summer is the crochet pattern and while searching for the perfect item I came across this cute, girly dress in H&M. This is perfect for Summer, festivals and most importantly emphasizing a tan! For me, crochet is the perfect festival fabric and especially in the aftermath of Coachella I think it will be a popular look in the next few months. Personally, I love the intricate detailing which can add a touch of texture to any outift.

Crazy For Co-ordinates

As we edge closer and closer towards Summer the shops are starting to fill up with sunshine essentials including my obsession at the moment - coordinates!! 

In the lead up to Summer I've been hunting down my perfect set of coordinates but I often find that it's quite expensive for both the top and the bottom. However, when recently browsing through missguided I saw this perfect matching set coupled with a reasonable price tag. 

Sunglasses -Asos
Top & skirt - Missguided
Shoes - River Island
Clutch - Boohoo

So with the top and skirt priced at only £9.99 each this ended up being a bit of a bargain buy outfit. The Boohoo clutch bag being a steal at only £8, the choker an eBay buy for just over £2 and the sunglasses in the sale at only £4.50! 

I am loving the return of the choker at the moment and eBay is definitely the way to go for this type of item! The shoes were a little more expensive but I love the tie around laces that just make them a little more feminine and interesting. 

Definitely one of favourite looks at the moment. More co-ordinate appreciation coming up in my blog posts later this week!

Pretty Pink PVC

About three weeks ago I was scrolling through a couple of  clothes websites (again...) and I found this amazing pink PVC skirt on missguided that I couldn't resist buying! After wearing it out at the weekend I realised that I wouldn't really get much use out of it in the day time unless I came up with a more toned down, appropriate look. So that's exactly what I did, hope you like it!

Bomber Jacket - Mango
Shirt - Asos
PVC skirt - Missguided
Socks - Ebay
Shoes - Daisy Street

I've tried to tone down the skirt  by adding a high-neck shirt which kind of balances it up since the skirt is quite short and very shiny and... PVC-ish. Adding the bomber jacket can give it a more casual feel but it's also perfect in the lead up to Summer as it's not too thick but still keeps you quite warm. I saw these beautiful flatforms on Daisy Street and couldn't resist buying them, they are so comfy and still give me some height which is great at only 5ft 3". Sometimes I find that the jelly shoe type material can rub on your feet and make them quite uncomfortable, so I purchased these fish-net socks from ebay - making socks and sandals acceptable!

Nautical Notion

I've been meaning to blog about this particular item for a while but I've never found the time until now, so here it favourite dress at the moment! 

Day Look
Dress - Topshop
Shoes & Bag- River Island
Jacket - Zara

Night Look
Dress - Topshop
Clutch - Accessorize
Shoes - Asos

While I was in London in February I visited the Topshop flagship store and considering it is a 90,000 square foot store filled with clothes there was no way I was leaving empty handed! This was one of my purchases, an A-line striped dress from the petite section which has quickly become one of my favourite dresses in my wardrobe. The reason for this is that I love the fit and shape of the dress but also the feel of the satin fabric and how it can easily be worn either dressed up or down.

About a month later I spotted a picture of Beyonce wearing the same dress while out in London. Being a massive fan of Beyonce I was excited just to own a piece of clothing that she has worn or has in her wardrobe but it also shows that even celebs are fans of the high street. At £70 I think this dress is definitely worth the money, but unfortunately it sold out really quickly online so I'm glad I purchased it when I did, even if I did come back from London spending way more than I had planned...
