|Snake Print Top - River Island (similar here)|
This was a sale find, I don’t feel like I’ve got much in the sales this year really, they don’t seem to have been very good near me! Except for this top of course. And a couple of other bits, but we’ll get onto that later! What really sold this one to me was the cool strap/back business. I couldn’t quite work it out to begin with (and I did get a bit tangled up when I tried it on, haha!) but I soon sorted it/myself out and realised just how special it is.
|Hoop Earrings - Republic (similar here) // Orange Vest Top - Zara (similar here)|
Back a while ago I mentioned my growing love for hoop earrings (the actual post is here if you’d like a read), and I found these in Republic right by the till and grabbed them literally just as I was putting my card in the machine. I really love how they’re patterned so it makes them a bit more interesting than plain hoops - which I have enough of anyway!
The top I have lusted after for such a long time, not for the style but for the incredible colour! Orange is definitely my favourite colour of the moment, but it has to be a really bright-tangerine-orange, the exact colour of this top! I didn’t try it on as I was so head-over-heels for the colour, when I got it home and did, I realised it’s quite long so is perfect over bikinis. It’s also pretty low cut, but I whacked on a black lace bandeau underneath and it looks great.
|Playsuit - New Look (Similar here)|
Looking at this picture I can see just how creased the playsuit and top look! But the playsuit is actually meant to have a crinkle effect, the top easily creases - and me and the iron aren’t the best of friends. This playsuit is a definite for my holiday, it’s so light and airy so I shouldn’t get too hot in it! I also really love the print of the fabric. I’m a sucker for a bit of animal print, but this adds it more subtly, mixing it in with the tie dye. It also came with a plain brown belt to go round the waist (you can just about see the belt hooks) which pulls in the waist a bit more.
|Grey Pumps - Miss Selfridge (Similar here)|
Another sale find (told you there’d be more)! These are so cute, I’m not really into pumps but when I saw and tried on these they just seemed too perfect not to have. I’m really loving grey (faux) leather at the moment, I’ve been using a grey bag I got from Primark a couple of years ago a lot too recently, I think it’s a very sophisticated colour and a nice alternative to black.
