SUMMER STROLLING












T-shirt / Asos
Dungarees / New Look (old)
Vans

Sometimes it's easy to forget that my home town is surrounded by beautiful woodlands and countryside, so on Saturday me and George decided to spend the afternoon exploring. It was so nice to just walk for miles, have a chat and forget about everything else. How have you been making the most of this perfect weather?

I have an almost identical post from last summer right here. I can't believe it was a whole year ago!

WISHLIST #5

ASOS under £20..
I rarely buy new clothes full price any more. Occasionally I'll treat myself to something affordable if I need it absolutely must have it, but generally I'll only shop in the sales or on eBay. Of course there's a tonne of things I would buy if I had lots and lots of money, but realistically it's not sensible to splurge on clothing when you have important life stuff to save for (a wedding, a house etc..) and most of what we find on the high street is over-priced anyway! So, seeing as I haven't made a wishlist in quite some time, I've selected a few of my favourite pieces from my saved items page on asos, all of which are now £20 or under. What's on your wishlist at the moment?

SUMMER JOGGERS








T-shirt / Noisy May via Asos
Joggers / River Island
Wedges / Pull & Bear
Sunglasses / Red Herring, Debenhams
Watch / Asos

I've been wanting some summery trousers for ages now and recently spotted a few pairs of printed joggers in River Island. I played it safe with a black and white pair, since I don't feel brave enough to wear brightly coloured ones, however these are still suitably funky and I love the mixture of prints. They are incredibly comfortable and lightweight and I have no doubt that I will be living in them for the majority of summer ;) I've been pairing them with this plain cropped t-shirt from asos which was £4 in the sale!
I bought these wedges to wear to my brother's wedding last weekend and I absolutely adore them. I actually went shopping having already browsed the internet and set my sights on a pair of wedges from Urban Outfitters, however they were sold out in my size when I got there. Luckily enough I popped into Pull & Bear and stumbled upon these, which were even better than the ones I originally wanted! I was a very happy bunny :)
