Hold on Summer

I keep getting that horrible feeling that summer is slipping through our finger tips. Some of the leaves in my garden are starting to head past their best and I’m already thinking about my AW13 wardrobe.  This is quite sad I’ll be honest because I am far more into my sunny months than the cold miserable ones.

I’ve had the whole week off which I won’t lie has been absolute bliss.  I hadn’t got anything planned so I’ve basically been pottering about the house and getting some organisation going on.  As you know moving can be tough and no matter how long ago you moved (we moved in a month ago) you’ll still have boxes waiting to have a home. 

Luckily my other half has been off as well so we’ve eaten outside and indulged in the sunshine, I even had the time to pop along to a Laura Ashley event at my local Homebase.  Don’t you always find when its the weekend or when its your day off, the weather always seems to be against you? Usually that is the case for me but this time I’ve been a very lucky bean. 

What I’m Wearing:

Dress – Chicnova Modal U Neckline Tank Dress – £15.36

Necklace – Topshop Colourful Beaded – £28.00

Bag – Vintage

Earings – Topshop Stone Triangle Tassel Earrings – £16.50

Sandals – Topshop Houla Find Stud Sandals – £28.00

Belt – Primark


 We went to Ikea (my second home at the moment) then decided to grab a bite to eat.. so I thought I’d wear this!  The black dress is a simple vest dress but because I’m quite curvy I often feel very self conscious about my hips, so to avoid this I’ve added in a slim brown belt and pulled the fabric over it a touch.  I’ve added in a summer hippy chic vibe with this gorgeous necklace from Topshop along with their tribal style earrings.  All very simple to be honest but looks like you made an effort… without making an effort.

I’ve got a busy few weeks a head so I’m totally chilling out over the next few days.  I want to relax with friends and get some blog posts sorted as I have so much to tell you all!  But for now I’ll wish you a happy Friday!

      Thank you! I saw that necklace and fell in love, the colours are vibrant but not too bright
