Finito. I am done with second year, apologies for gloating to those still going through exams… I wish you the best of luck!
Seeing as I’m done and homebound to London, I thought I would share some of my recent buys in aid of summer, because when I revise – I see a lot of delivery people! (Yes, every break is a shopping break..)
1. ZARA Stretch Skinny Trousers – Navy
As it isn’t quite tropical yet, and I plan on working for most of summer, trousers are essential. Like I love trousers already, but when I found these stretchy ones in Zara that have an ELASTICATED WAISTBAND – yes people, smart but food friendly! They were a must. Plus, the multi-coloured threads woven into dots looks cute! And they’re navy. A+++
2. ZARA Full Check Dress – Blue
For when it does get warmer, I realised I don’t have any dresses. Well, work appropriate ones! I’m not really a dress person, unless it’s denim or evening! I found this cute Zara summer dress which is comfy, yet still looks quite smart – and it’s on trend with gingham! It can be dressed up/down which is also useful. Sorry for no full length photo, scroll to the bottom!
3. ASOS Petite Denim Jacket – Midwash Blue
Less work appropriate, this denim jacket. I haven’t had a denim jacket since I was about 10, but I keep seeing them on Instagram. I think they’re a perfect summer jacket to stay shielded from the wind and dress down a girly summer outfit. This wash of denim is pretty perfect too.
4. Mango Metallic Handle Tote Bag – Medium Brown
THIS BAG. avmmoteavpv. So much love it-bag (Bonsai Bag) with the metallic handles, but for a fraction of the price. It comes in black and brown, but I thought the brown was more summery. It has a zipped pocket, two sections and a longer crossbody handle so it works well as a day bag!
5. Stila Glitter Glow Liquid Eyeshadow – Kitten Karma
Random I know, I never talk beauty. I’ve seen these glitter glow things everywhere, but they were out of stock on FeelUnique, ASOS, M&S etc… in the shade I wanted. Eventually I gave up and just bought it from Stila directly in Kitten Karma – a champagne colour with a silver and copper sparkle. They don’t flake everywhere, they look wet and there’s loads of shades. They’re basically perfect for nights out when you look a bit dull! Check the American site here for different shades on different skin tones – super useful.
SO. Those are my five favourites for summer (so far). All blogging will commence from London now!
Good luck to everyone with exams/deadlines ❤
