So as you may have heard, summer is not my favourite season. I struggle to find pieces that are really me amongst the neons and floaty fabrics filling the stores at this time of year, and it’s safe to say I find it much easier to shop for autumn/winter. Having said all that, when House of Fraser kindly offered to let me choose some items from their latest summer collection, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this AX Paris frock being as it really IS my style, despite being summery. I thought I’d team it with some typically me, more tough pieces to show you how you too can adopt some of the latest trends, but spin them your way, to suit your style.
I started off with the dress, which is available at House of Fraser. They have tonnes of gorgeous pieces right now, both instore and online and some of them are highly discounted- so plenty of bargains to be had. I then opted for some nondescript Primark leggings to darken the outfit and threw over a faux leather gilet that I recently got from Depop- one of my favourite place to shop at the moment! One of my favourite pieces of this whole outfit, is my brand spanking new, New Look rucksack, which I’m besotted with. This is only £19.99 at New Look here, and I think everyone and their Mum needs one of these, they’re just so amazing, both to look at and in terms of practicality. Finally I finished the look with my new River Island boots that I nabbed for just £20 in their recent sale- such a steal! I’d had my eye on these for the longest time, so couldn’t resist them discounted! My sunglasses as ever, are Forever 21 and I went for the silver theme with my accessories with my TH watch (here) and Rings and Tings spiked necklace (here). That’s it!
So, that’s all for today’s OOTD, let me know what you think of it! I’ve got a tonne of outfits coming up as I’ve been lucky enough to have my nearest and dearest photograph me quite a bit lately, plus much more on the way! Until next time…
