I went shopping this week, in this heat it was more of a challenge! I purchased two new outfits, both of which are perfect for this weather, so let's hope it lasts. These items are also versatile and can be worn with other items of my wardrobe, so I will have more outfit options.
So, I bought this pretty lace crop top from Topshop. I bought a size up, so it is not too short. I find Topshop sizes to be quite small. I plan to wear this with my pinafore this weekend, it has no lining on the back, so the lace material will look great in contrast to my denim pinafore.
I adore this denim skirt from River Island. The button detail and slight flare to the skirt make it a cool and fun piece to wear on these hot days. It's a denim colour that I do not have in my wardrobe, which may be hard to believe since I own a lot of denim! I must visit the new Denim Studio at Selfridge's, it sounds like a haven for #denimlovers.
So, outfit 2 is laid back and easy to wear. I chose a green striped shirt from Topshop. It's a light cotton, with cute silver buttons. It is an item that I will wear a lot, and again, I purchased a size bigger for an oversized look.
I purchased these
mom trousers mom shorts from River Island. The shorts are so comfy and the high waist is a style that I have grown to love. It can be worn with an oversized t-shirt tucked in or alternatively my new lace crop top. This style reminds me of Farrah Fawcett, a style icon famous for her high waisted denim wear, as well as her hairstyle.
Whilst looking at the Topshop site, something I do more often than I should, I fell in love with The New Vintage collection. The campaign is beautiful and the images have a vintage feel that I love. It is described as, Dishevelled bohemia meets disco glam, need I say more? It is quite expensive, however if I was to make a purchase, it would be like buying a piece of Topshop history, and would remain wearable in years to come. Below, are a few of the images that have me in awe!
I hope you have enjoyed reading this post. What have you purchased recently? Do you like the new Topshop collection?
