Summer brights

Right so after what actually seems forever, I’m finally back blogging! With so many masters deadlines it’s been impossible to hold down a job, a social life, the gym… and most importantly sleep. But I’ve finally got my blogging head back on, and looking forward to really investing some time into my blog!

To kick things back off again, I thought I’d start with a fashion post involving all things colour! ‘Cause who doesn’t love putting them black tights and jeans away, and making way for something a bit brighter!

I’ve seen so many bloggers put red and gingham together, but do you not think mustard pairs just as well? I have a thing for Zara jackets, especially mustard coloured ones! And after seeing the frills on this jacket, I knew I’d found my answer to summer layering.

I actually didn’t own anything gingham till I purchased these shorts (I know, I know, it’s a struggle to call myself a blogger after that statement, but I just couldn’t find anything I really loved!) But arent they just the perfect holiday ‘dressy’ shorts? And not to mention having a nod the embroidery trend that’s still going strong. The only thing I’d say before buying purchasing these shorts, is that the sizing is a bit off. They’re a bit too big for me in a size 6… and with my bum I’m definitely not a 4! So just take that into consideration before purchasing.

I’m very very self-conscious of my legs. Everyone has that thing they hate, and mine is my very short legs. I’m 5ft3, the struggle is real. Up until now it’s stopped me from buying barely there heels. I just feel like they make my legs look  so much shorter! But annoyingly they just go with everything! So I’ve forced myself to put my insecurities aside for the sake of fashion, and finally purchase a pair. These are a lovely satin material, so hopefully they’ll last a bit longer than leather or suede.

A huge thanks to Lily Faulkner for the photographs! I’ve put links on my instagram to her work, so make sure to give her a follow!
