THE SASSY SUMMER TOP




It is bloody hot in London at the moment and I'm (not so secretly) over summer and ready to rock some good old chunky jumpers. Please don't hate me. 
I find summer fashion to be a little boring, especially as it gets towards the end and shops aren't releasing any new pieces - if anything they're getting ready for winter. I feel less like myself as I can't wear black every single day (first world problems or what?), but I managed to find a top that inspired me and got me excited about the high temperatures as it's super light and perfect for those days where you just think you're gonna be melting on the ground.

I spotted this little sassy number from Chicwish on different bloggers I love like Ropes of Holland , and I fell in love with it straight away as it makes a statement but it's also not too 'in your face' since it's monochrome and simple. The fact that it's white makes it a little more classic not to mention it can look more expensive than it is, if styled well. The poofy sleeves remind me of those catwalk pieces you admire on magazines but you're too afraid to wear. 

I decided to pair it with my current favourite jeans - they're a light wash and feature a step hem. They're so cool, I keep getting compliments whenever I wear them. It's also worth mentioning they're a straight leg and not skinny (I'm branching out guys, are you proud?) and they're not too expensive. They also come in Tall and Petite. 

The shoes are from one of my favourite brands this year - Rocket Dog - and they're actually very comfortable despite the high heel. They elongate my legs, they're neutral and they go with more outfits than I initially thought. I wear them day and night and did I mention they're 50% OFF now?! Get them here or you'll regret it. 

Last but not least are my sunglasses covering my face, because on this day I decided not to wear makeup. They're from Firmoo and they're fun and perfect for days where you want to hide your eyes after a sleepless night - spent mostly sweating due to the temperature rather than partying with your pals. I got this pair last year so I don't know if they still stock them but the site has some awesome designs and they don't cost a capital!

  6. This is the most gorgeous outfit, and I love the way the light hits in these shots too. I kind of can't wait for cosy knits again, although it didn't feel like we got much of a summer in Scotland! x

  7. I was really looking forward to summer this year, but to be honest, I haven't done much and spent most of the time indoors working. Roll on cosy jumpers and snuggling under blankets with a hot chocolate
