The sun is shining and the shorts are out. These particular ones are a Zara-esque pick from the wonderful Sheinside. And they are a summer staple. I love the mixtures of the pinks and reds; I always used to think that pink and red went with a 'red and green should never be seen' kind of rule. But I think fashion rules should be broken and these shorts are too cute for summer.
I paired these with a polka dot shirt, also a Sheinside special. I have wanted a polka-dot shirt as it is such a wardrobe classic and will go with anything! I love the collarless style and the front pockets. I decided to break it up a little with my absolute BARGAIN of a purchase in the form of this ASOS belt, at the grand total of £3.50. I picked out the silver on the belt with these Zara heels I picked up in Spain, having searched for them everywhere over here! I think these shorts would look fab with flats too, and a tailored short can be really versatile, dressed up or down.
Top - Zara Skirt - River Island Bag - H&M Sandals - Zara Bracelet - ChloBo Sunglasses - Westward Leaning
You would think being on holiday I could have at least smiled in one of these photo's. I was happy, honest! And no matter how much I think I am doing a non-goofy, cool and totally hip blogger pose smile, I just succumb to 'resting bitch face'. But anyway, apologies for that! Here is part one of my holiday style diary. I had a pretty chilled out holiday in Marbella this year, so there wasn't a pair of heels in sight (apart from a gorgeous pair my boyfriend snapped up in the Zara sale as a birthday present, but more about those later).
This top was a great sale find from Zara. I loved the floaty material and the palm print and colours, and I thought it would be perfect on holiday. I decided to go for clashing prints in the form of this River Island skort. This has to be one of my favourite buys of the year, I think it's so flattering and I am such a sucker for black and white; I can't resist! It's just so classy and easy to pair with items. Unfortunately this Zara top has sold out online, and I did snap up this skort in the sale on River Island, but you can still find it full price here.
I kept this item casual with a pair of last year's Zara silver and white sandals and my trusty Westward Leaning sunnies; these babies never fail me. My bangle was a present from my parents trip to Morocco a few months back and I thought the turquoise stone complimented the top perfectly and I wanted to keep accessories to a minimum, so it seemed perfect.
Trousers - Closet Clothing* Jumper - Zara Jacket - Whistles Shoes - Zara Bag - H&M Sunglasses - ASOS
Here is a super quick post to show you guys these gorgeous Closet Clothing pants I received a few weeks back. These are so gorgeous and perfect for summer, and the lovely tailored style looks great with either flats or heels. The material is really nice and thick too.
This is a pretty casual outfit that I've put together. I decided to throw on my Zara sliders for a day time look and added a splash of colour with my new favourite Zara sale buy, this mustard yellow jumper. I had my eye on this sleeveless knit for a while and when it came in the sale I just had to get it! It's such a great colour and I love the high neck. This is my last post for a week or so as I am off on holiday, but I will be doing a holiday style diary when I get back to show you guys some of my holiday looks, so keep posted!
Dress - Motel* Coat - River Island Bag - Zara Shoes - Zara Sunglasses - ASOS
How beautiful is this Motel Rocks bodycon dress? I am usually not one for bodycon these days. I sometimes feel it's a little 'much'. But the slightly laid back look to this one really drew me to it, along with the gorgeous Orange-Red colour and asymmetric cut out sleeve. The orange colour also matches this matte MAC lippy perfectly. It's the ideal length for me and I can't wait to rock this with my (hopeful) tan on Holiday. It's just all round a really flattering dress.
I decided to jazz it up a bit for a more daytime look by throwing on my daisy print coat from River Island, which I now believe they have created in a short too; need this flower power co-ord in my life! I am SO loving River Island at the moment, they seem to have dropped the rhinestones and started making some fierce items. I can't wait to get my hands on some of their AW14 fur pieces I have seen knocking about on Instagram. Keeping my eyes peeled for them to hit stores!
Hope you like my latest look and thank you so much for all your lovely comment's guys! I love hearing your feedback!
