These photos were taken from Castle Hill, in Cambridge, from which you can see Cambridge’s skyline, as well as seeing all the way out to the hill at Gog Magogs. I was suprised by the view and wondered why I’d never been there before! I can imagine it’s a great place in summer.
My new shoes from Boohoo can change an outfit from boring to interesting easily, especially by pairing with some of the cute frilly socks from Topshop. Topshop have so many different colours, as well as River Island, and also Primark (only £1.50 there).
I can’t wait to pair my new shoes with my fur coat for a great statement outfit
On Sunday I went to V-Festival at Hylands Park in Chelmsford, and it was literally one of the best things! The atmosphere was amazing, and the whole day was perfect. There were so many different outfits, from some dressed as smurfs to those in floral headbands and black wellies!
I wore denim shorts (Topshop), black wellies, a white crop top (Primark), a floral headband (Primark), and various necklaces..
We saw so many artists- Calvin Harris, The Vaccines, Stereophonics, Kings of Leon, Ellie Goulding, Olly Murs, The Saturdays and more.
I particularly liked this backpack and floral headband;
On Monday it was absolutely boiling, and Zoe (fashion blogger for runway) and I decided to wander through fields on a bit of a walk, and of course we both took the opportunity to share our summeroutfits.
I wore a high waisted floral skirt with a navy turtleneck sleeveless crop top (Primark, £2.50) with black studded pumps.
My 2 top buys this week both came from Primark, and at such a great price. The crop top was only £2.50 which is an absolute bargain, and I also bought these necklaces which came in a three pack:
Haven’t written in such a long time, literally because I’ve barely seen shopping recently or done anything exciting so thought I wouldn’t bore you guys
Anyway, even when I did go shopping (with fashion blogger Zoe) I found nothing I went looking for, or at least found most things I went in for but nothing in my size! It was so annoying and i’d been so excited as well to go shopping. I’m looking forward to summer so much and the weather started to actually get better, every day I just get more and more excited. I’ve got 7 days until my last exam and then that’s me done at school woooo, so summer holidays will be a month earlier this year yay
After my depressing shopping trip, I decided to have a search on the internet to make me feel better. Even though the online shops still didn’t have what i wanted in my size online, i found some other cute picks which I’ve put on my June 2013 wishlist. There’s not too many as of yet, and besides it is only the 5th.
These white high waisted shorts are absolutely gorgeous, or at least they seem perfect from Topshop’s online photo. The light material means they are perfect for summer whilst the shape is just so simply flattering. You might not be able to see from the photo but they have small, cute little flowers embroided in the lace.
I don’t usually go for these sort of tops but I tried this on in the shop seeing as Zoe was trying something on too. I absolutely adore the pattern and the vibrant colours, and it would go nicely with some high waisted shorts or a skirt (see no. 6).
I was overjoyed when i saw this on H&M’s website, as first of all i thought hey it’s a nice top, but when i saw the price things just got better. At only £4.99 it seems a massive bargain, and so perf to go with everything. It is open-work lace and I can imagine it’s perfect for sliding on over a bikini after a dip in the pool on holiday. It’s available in cream (like the colour of the top in no. 5), which I think I would go for considering the weather.
Okay so I know what you’re probably thinking, how on earth are these appropriate for the sunny weather? Yeah me too but I seriously think these are amazing. I tried some on similar in Primark and they were beautiful, but for £15 in Primark I thought they weren’t worth it for the quality. Boohoo, Asos and MissGuided all have practically identical leggings for only £5 more which I think is worth it because of the higher quality. They probably aren’t best for summer because I’d totally bake in them but just wanted to share my thoughts on them!
This is really quite similar to number 3, but slightly different! It has gorgeous sequin embellishments over it and is sleeveless. I probably wouldn’t buy both 3 and this one, plus also there is quite a big price difference.
This is one of the items of clothing I’ve been wanting for quite a while now, and I’ve been in several times to get it but wasn’t there! Finally decided to order it online, it was in my basket and everything was great…. and then it went out of stock. So, I have still not bought it but I am still looking for it every time I go shopping. This would be such a useful skirt to have as you could quickly put it on and match it with almost anything. I’ve noticed Topshop (and practically every other shop) has a similar skirt for only £20, so I may buy from there if New Look never get it back in. I feel it would be my ‘summer skirt’ that I would wear just so much and make so much use out of, but maybe something with come up in the shops in the next few weeks that will become my summer skirt.
I have to admit I didn’t think I’d be writing for so long but I just kept finding more and more online..
I really really really want a cute sundress, so really any white/delicate dress is on my wishlist, not just this particular Topshop one. Basically the same explanation- but it is perfect for summer- perfect for the beach, holidays, town, picnics, and the list is endless.
8) SELECTION OF BOOHOO’S NECKLACES | From top to bottom; £6, £8, £10
Necklaces like these help to make a simple outfit a bit more exciting or change the look slightly, and are all at very reasonable prices. These ones from boohoo caught my eye, especially the Heidi Bird Necklace which creates such a statement. The Lucy Triangle Double Chain Pendant is also very likely to go with every outfit, which is what makes it such a good buy. The Mia Cut Out Tribal Necklace is also ideal for festivals or to finish an outfit off.
