You’d be forgiven for thinking that the warm weather we’re currently experiencing would make me discard my mostly black wardrobe in favour of something a little more summer friendly. You know, loose fitting, maybe white or even (God forbid) colourful.
You’d be wrong.
Not since the pre-emo days of 2004 have I worn sensible summer clothes in summer, I’m just too attached to my black.
I will however wear cropped tops in winter. Riddle me that.
These jeans have become my go-to recently. I’m actually wearing them right now and they’re so bloody comfy I don’t ever want to take them off. I have separation anxiety when they go in the wash and I haven’t actually touched any other pairs in months. I feel like Topshop really can’t go wrong with their denim selection, there’s always so much to choose from and I love the variety in their selection of styles because it means you’re guaranteed to find a pair of jeans that flatters you no matter what your body shape. I’m most self-conscious of my hip and thigh area, and therefore for me a high waisted pair is absolutely essential.
Forever 21 have been a new discovery for me in the last few months. I mean I’ve heard of them before, don’t worry, I’ve not been living under a rock, but I’ve never ordered anything from them until last month when I went a liiiiittle bit crazy and ordered all of the tops. Literally. All of them. Including this fab little crop top which I’ve practically worn to death. I love it’s structuring and how flattering it is on my shape plus the super cute details like the added silver hardware and the turquoise inner lining really add that extra detail which makes it stand out as something a little bit special.
And of course, who could forget my favourite Topshop sandals?! I’ve mentioned these little beauties a few times now and I’m no less in love with them than I was the first day I got them. They may have tried to break my neck more than once, but they’re also the comfiest bloody sandals I’ve ever owned. It’s a love hate relationship between us, I love them, they hate my ankles. We’re making it work.
Are you finding it difficult to dress in this unexpected heat? I’m keen to hear everyone’s fashion solutions!
