FASHION SNIPPETS


I've mentioned in the past how un-fashion-conscious I am sometimes. I stick to what I like and I know, and I'm okay with that. I rarely do fashion posts because frankly most of my days are spent in jeans and t-shirts, so nothing revolutionary. However this summer I've had some clothes and shoes that I've really really loved, and that I thought I'd share with you today. 

First on the top left we have my grey dress from H&M. This dress is really simply but I find really flattering on my figure (heavy up top). It has an elastic waist which helps to suck you in for that hourglass looking figure. It also has pockets which always makes a dress 10x better in my opinion. Being from H&M this was a great price, no more than £7.99 if I remember rightly. The grey is versatile to wear in the day as a casual dress for really warm days, with a bomber jacket for cooler nights, or paired with heels and some nice jewellery for a more put together look. 

Next on the top right is my bargain Topshop vest from a while ago. I bought this for £7 in the Topshop sale, I think back in September time. Generally I'm very conscious of being too busty to wear vest tops, but this sits perfectly on me and doesn't have too low of a v shape at the front. I've been wearing this both on really hot days with shorts, and slightly cooler days with jeans and a cardigan. The material is so soft making is really comfy to wear, and the bright blue geometric patterns makes a nice change from my monochrome stripes I so often wear. 

The vest in the bottom left corner is from Boohoo, but I actually got it from ASOS. As you can see this has the most beautiful embroidery on the front, with a cord tie at the top. This vest is slightly less comfy to wear than the former Topshop option, only due to its material and the fact it is more fitted. This for me is a night wear vest, or when you're doing something a bit more fancy than usual. I've never actually tried anything from Boohoo before but I do really like this piece. Like I said as I tend to wear monochrome tops this adds a pop of colour perfect for the warmer months. At £10 this is a lovely staple for my wardrobe. 

Finally are probably my favourite fashion purchase in a long time, my block heels from Dorothy Perkins. Since my sixth form prom (2014) I've been craving a pair of heels just like this. Something that can be worn both casually and dressed up, not too high, with a strap around the heel. And just before my birthday I stumbled across these beauties in DP. I wore these with a demin dress on my birthday, and I felt fabulous. Being a short human (5 ft 2) wearing heels makes me feel more 'normal' sized, and so much more confident. I've also worn these with jeans and a pretty top for evening meals out. So that's some fashion snippets from my summer wardrobe. Have clothes have you been reaching for recently?
