Shirt- New Look// Kimono- Primark// Trousers- Uniqlo// Sandals- New Look// Necklace- Charity Shop

It's only been two days since I last posted? Wow, that's an achievement for me haha. Cyber high 5 to anyone who's kind enough to read this :) I bought this kimono from Primark around two years ago and never had the opportunity to wear it. I guess bad weather and the lack of my visits down the beach prevented this, but I love how you can wear the kimono as a jacket/cardigan substitute on warm days. Following on from my last post, my love for mixed and clashed prints is still evident here. There's just something about how the contrasting prints create so much character in an outfit.
Hope you've all had a lovely weekend. Feel free to tell me what you think about my outfit and link me to your blogs as well :) I always enjoy reading them.

 Tunic- Forever 21// Skirt- Next// Necklace- Gift from Greece// Jelly Sandals- Asos.

Hey everyone, hope you've been well. As always, I'm going to start with an apology!! Moving houses is a lot more stressful than I ever thought it would be. I've still got a lot of unpacking to do and what with applying for jobs and other necessities that come with changing your address and being a recent graduate: I've once again slacked at regularly posting on here.
Anyway, on to this outfit. Along with the all white trend, I'm also loving clashing and mixing different  contrasting patterns and prints together. This trend completely goes against a conventional look which is an element that I just find so appealing. What do you think?
There's still time to enter my giveaway, which you can do so here :) Hope you have a lovely weekend. What are your plans? I hope they're more eventful and entertaining than just unpacking :( Wish me luck!

Crop Top- New Look// Shorts- River Island

Well, the weather has been absolutely delightful this week, hasn't it? I love how the sunshine immediately puts everyone in a good mood. Living in Britain for the majority of my life has meant that I always always mention the weather in my posts, sorry! Haha!
Like everyone else, I really love the 'all white' look. I'm a clumsy mess and I always manage to spill something on my clothes. How funny, I spilt some Blueberry slush puppy all over my shorts about an hour after taking these photos, at least it compliments my the embroidery, right? To perfect this look, I think it's important to keep the white as white as you possibly can get, this way the outfit gives the illusion of a crisp and fresh look- how perfect for the scorching sun.
There's still time to enter my giveaway here ! The sunglasses are so gorgeous and how perfect would they be for the lovely weather that we're having now? :) Good luck if you're entering.
Have a great week.

Uploading these pictures and writing this post is making me a little sad as this was the last time I shot an outfit post in Maesteg. Having said that, I should apologise for my lack of posts lately (again!) as I've been so so busy with packing up my life and somehow managing to fit it into a little van. I'm happy to say that I'm now officially a Cardiff resident :) Also, having no internet for a week and purely relying on my 3G did not suffice.
Anyway, enough of that and onto the outfit. One of the perks of living in Maesteg was the great selection of charity shops that were literally just outside my house. I picked up this shirt along with two others for just £4. As expected, they were a little big but as I've said, I like anything oversized and it gives the illusion of a laid back, relaxed look when worn during the Summer. I decided to team it up with these high waisted shorts in order to create more of a silhouette.As always, I've decided to put my beloved brogues and gold Regal Rose chain into the outfit :)
Hope you're all having a lovely week. News on my first ever giveaway to come shortly.
