Summer Distractions

So... I'm back! 

Due to being busy with holidays, festivals and general summer student laziness, I haven't been blogging very often. But, I'm back, and after recently turning 19 (I feel so old!) I thought I would share my recent birthday purchases with you. 

Top - Boohoo
Leggings - Topshop
Shoes - Boohoo

I've never particularly been a fan of neon but since it's summer I think it's a good way to add a pop of colour to an outfit. Mixing monochrome with a bright colour is a good way to make an outfit more interesting and fun! 

These leggings are one of my favourite purchases from topshop. They are perfect for wearing out for lunch or for dressing up at night! I also love the aztec pattern, with aztec being a Summer trend. 

The barely there sandals are a purchase that I have been wanting to make for a while now. At first I wasn't sure about this trend but I have definitely been converted and by the looks of it so have a lot of people as it has become one of the biggest shoe trends this season. They are perfect for wearing out to lunch - adding a touch of class to an outfit. 

Necklace - River Island
Bracelet - New Look
Playsuit - Missguided
Shoes - Topshop

This wasn't intentional but I've ended up going for a similar theme with this outfit by adding a bright pop of colour with the shoes. The reason I chose yellow is because it has emerged as one of the strongest colour trends this season and I wanted to get in on the act!

I particularly liked the pattern of this playsuit and after seeing various letter patterns around I thought that it was quite interesting. Other items sporting this pattern can be seen below...

Happy shopping!
