Hey guys. Hope you're all having a fabulous start to your weekend.. If only the weather would improve just a little though, I'm so fed up with grey, dull weather, blah!
To cheer myself up just lately I've been doing a little bit of shopping and picking up some summer items in the hope that Summer will soon grace us with it's presence. Last summer I barely bought any new clothes because the weather was so rubbish, so it was definitely time to treat myself to a few summer items. It's not all from one particular place, I went shopping with my friend and for a change we went into lots of different places, so there's a bit of everything! I also didn't go too crazy, I saw so many gorgeous dresses but I can't help but think I won't ever get a chance to wear them with the weather being so rubbish..
Anyway here is what I did get..
Aztec Print Peplum Top - ASOS
I think I've said before on here that I'm loving the black and white monochrome trend, well another trend I'm loving is the aztec print. I'm just immediately drawn into the print and I can see it taking over my whole wardrobe soon, I'm not sure why I just really love it. I was worried this wouldn't be very flattering because the print is quite harsh, but because of the peplum bottom it actually really is.
Barbie Vest - Miss Selfridge
I know this isn't going to be everybody's cup of tea but I'm completely in love with this top. Not even kidding, I walked past Miss Selfridge and spotted this from a mile away. If you follow me on Instagram (lauraxamy) you'll of seen me a post a photo long sleeved Barbie top, so of course I just had to get one for the summer too! I'm Barbie and pink obsessed, but I'm sure if you've read my blog for a while you'll already know this.
Pink Flip Flops - Primark
These were such a bargain at just £2.50 (I think, it was around that price anyway). I haven't had a chance to wear them yet which makes me really sad, but I have worn them around the house just because they're too cute not to. If bright pink isn't really your colour then don't worry, they have them in lots of different colours too.
Bandeau Top - New Look
This was a bit of an essential item really. I love wearing baggy vest tops in summer because they're super and comfy and keep you really cool. However, I'm not so keen on flashing my bra to absolutely everybody so I picked up this little bra top to wear underneath them. New Look do these in lots of different colours so I'm planning on going back to pick up a couple more!
Tan Sandals - New Look
I'd been looking for a pair of tan sandals for my holiday to go with a maxi dress which has a tan belt, these were perfect and a bargain for just £7.99. I think it was the plaited detail on the straps that had me sold, I think it just makes them look that little bit nicer and a bit more expensive than they actually were.
Denim Look Top - New Look
Not sure what really drew me to this t-shirt but I was looking for some basic tops to just wear casually and happened to try this on, at the time I was wearing a black skater skirt and this top just looked really nice with it. It's tied at the bottom so isn't too long, so with a high waisted skirt it sits just at the top of the skirt and looks really nice. The material is a really soft jersey material too so perfect for summer as you won't get too hot and sticky in it!
Lace Top - H&M
Finally I picked up this lace top. If you saw my last outfit of the day post I was wearing a black one identical to this. Since I've worn that black one to death since I've had it I decided to go back and pick up another colour. They're just really easy to wear with anything, skirts, jeans, leggings and really comfy too.
So that's everything I've picked up over the past couple of weeks. As you can see it was mostly tops so I can style them with jeans if the weather is rubbish but if any of you have seen any lovely skirts or dresses then let me know because I'm definitely planning on treating myself to some new ones once the weather warms up.
Have you been picking up any summer bits?
