Why you gotta be so rude

Top(*): Dickins and Jones at House of Fraser
Skirt: Primark
Shoes: Ebay
Rings: ASOS

I was sent this top by the lovelies at House of Fraser to review from the brand Dickins and Jones. This top is rather unique being that it is different each side. On the front side you have an number of colours and it has a very summery feel to it, but on the back you have navy and white horizontal stripes. Personally, i would prefer it if the whole top was the same as it is on the front as i'm really loving the print, it's so vibrant. The top is a bit oversized (probably because i got it a size up) but i like it that way. My mum really likes the top too and has vowed to steal it from me - lol. There is a lot of navy blue going on in this top, it's all over the place on the front and obviously in stripes on the back, so i thought a skirt matching of that colour would go nicely, to give a bit of a sophisticated touch. I'm all for matching colours, a lot more so than clashing, i always feel silly when i majorly clash. Considering there's some pastel pink on the top, i thought might cute jellies would be a great match, perfect for summer too! I've kept the accessories to a minimal wearing two gold rings, one with a cute little raccoon on it. Think it adds a nice touch. You can also probably see my loom band bracelet mumsy made me. I've attempted to make something out of them but i'm absolutely useless!

I can tell there's something in the way

y yy yyy yyyy yyyyy yyyyyy yyyyyyy yyyyyyyy
Hat: H&M
Choker: & Shorts: Charity Shop but Unknown
Shirt: Charity Shop from Next
Shoes: New Look

This summery look is something i wore to the Beer Festival we have in my home town once a year, which i attended with some friends last weekend. The weather was absolutely beautiful, it was incredibly hot, so yes, it was a stupid idea to wear a long sleeved shirt. I got to the opportunity to try a variety of different beers, ales or ciders. I'm not a huge beer/ale fan, so i opted to try some ciders. They were all pretty rank in all honesty. I'll stick to my Kopparberg ciders from now on me thinks. Besides that it was a nice to just sit in a field with some friends, enjoying the sunshine and a few beverages. I even treated myself to a lemon ice from the ice cream van, my favourite from when i was growing up.

I'm loving this type of look at the moment. The denim shorts and a plain shirt combo. I think it can looked really sophisticated without looking too over the top, nor showing too much flesh. i bought this shirt from a charity shop after needing just a plain oversized shirt that i could wear with more or less anything. These shorts were also from a charity shop, which were a great find because they fit just perfectly. To jazz this outfit up a bit, i decided to opt for a black fedora, which would keep the sun off my head yet also add to the outfit. I decided to also wear a silver dimante choker which i thought added a nice little touch. This black bag is infact a back pack, my most favourite recent purchase. I absolutely adore it and i think it's the perfect bag to go with this outfit.

If any of you are interested, i recently did a guest post for the Very blog on how to wear dresses from day to night, which you can view here.
