Gingham lace

top: new look (generation 915), trousers: topshop

Happy summer! Well summer holidays to most of us university students that is! I have just completed my second year of my Musical Theatre degree, and have passed every module! So I am happily back home in Plymouth for 4 glorious months with my family and my boyfriend. 

This is my favourite outfit at the moment, seems as if I say that with every new outfit that I post recently, but it's very true! The top is quite the godsend, another piece from the generation 915 kids section of New Look but I never have any problems with their clothing so I cannot complain about the fact I'm wearing kids clothes half the time! It's lovely for this time of year, and the crotchet detail at the bottom is a lovely touch. Now these trousers are my favourite things, I get so many nice compliments on the lovely gingham pattern, and they are perfect for this time of the year, not quite scorching weather but the bright colour and lightweight is a perfect compromise! 

I hope everyone's enjoying their holidays if you're a fellow student and I hope you did well in all your exams, if not have an equally lovely week!

a boho thing

crop top: miss selfridge, culottes: H&M

I hope this gorgeous weather is treating everyone as nicely as it's treating me! And because of the glorious sunshine the lovely summer clothes can make their long awaited appearance.

 I went major holiday shopping this past Friday with my boyfriend (2 weeks today and we head out to Gran Canaria for 10 days, yay!) and picked up way over £100 worth of stuff, and these 2 pieces were part of that lot. I've wanted these types of crop tops for ages, to wear in the summer and also to wear as part of an evening ensemble, so I bought the black and the white so they can go with a wide variety of outfits. These are available in different stores such as Topshop/River Island, I would honestly recommend the Miss Selfridge range they are more substantial in their material, in the other stores I tried on the white crop top and it would be very see through, but the Miss Selfridge one is substantial enough not to be like that.

Now these culottes, they are the comfiest things I've worn! To be quite honest, I wouldn't described these as something I would wear, I don't own any other bottoms like these, but I figured for summer I would need some lightweight longish trousers for the days when I just don't fancy shorts (which is a lot!) and these fit that brief perfectly, and at only £14.99, I couldn't say no!

Lots of love!
