But I don't want to wait

Friday, 17 April 2015


For some bizarre reason, the last week or so has decided to be unusually sunny and warm for London, meaning for the first time in months I have been able to leave the house without a huge coat on. I've even braved bare legs a few times, which although it isn't that warm yet, felt surprisingly summery for April.
Anyway, I was sent some really cute summery pieces from the lovely Alice's Pig to style, and so have been able to dip my toes back into summer dressing again. It's so weird not having to wear a thousand layers / take extra jumpers with you everywhere. I'm not used to it yet. I love it though - as much as I thought I was a winter girl, summer just makes me so happy - what beats long, bright evenings and warm sun that brings out your freckles?!





I wore the Chaplin's Chap Top, with the Little Greenie Shorts, my Asos shoes and Rokit bag. I decided to throw on a hawaiian-print shirt on top as well, as I do love a bit of pattern clashing and felt if I was going to wear bright green I may as well go for a bright shirt to match/clash as well. The top was so comfortable - a perfect long-crop fit, with soft and light material that would be perfect for hot summer days. The shorts are also amazing - perfect height on the waist, and that perfect length that is short and feminine without being uncomfortably revealing or too short. Also the colour is great - I wouldn't usually go for such a bright green, but I have definitely been converted. Summer festival shorts sorted.





Alice's Pig have some amazing pieces on their site, I really recommend you check them out! Sorry for the short post, I will have longer to write this weekend (once I am not waist-deep in art work for my exam next week!)
Have a lovely weekend!

  4. This is so very different from your usual style but still very, very you. I can't say I'm a big fan of green but this particular shade goes really, really well with your skin and hair. You should try it out more often. It makes me wanna copy+paste you into Coachella.

  5. All hail the queen of print clashing [bows down], dude, you make me love the idea of print clashing! I was always so scared I'd look like some sort of oompa loompa (who aren't even that bad I must add) if I print clashed, but you pull it off so effortlessly, that I'd be crazy not to try! The hawaiian shirt and shorts are perfect together and your crop top is so nice! The green also suits you crazy well! x

  11. Those shorts are just such a lovely colour. And the Hawaiian shirt is a really inspired choice; would never have thought that would work, but looks great. I hope your exams are going well :-) x

  13. I love the clashing with the Hawaiian top on the striped top over bright shorts! I may well recreate that myself... Also the shorts are such a gorgeous colour and design - will look around for similar styles in high street stores. Love your blog!
