More Summer!

Part 3: Tops
This top is lovely, and it costs just £16, from New Look, and with it's harmonious gold and cream colour scheme, it is rightly named Angel. This is a lovely bat wing tee-shirt for preventing sunburn, and also looks fab for nights out with skinny jeans and heels. Perfect all round!

I was a little unsure about this top at first, but after some time, it grew on me. It's from the People Tree, and costs £32.00, which is a little expensive for a vest top, which, by the way, is called The Rosie Umbrella. I think this would look lovely with high waisted shorts and Converse, for the more casual day, like, the park?

This beautiful camisole is called Water Floral, matching it's colour scheme, of floral reds, and oceanic blues. It costs £19.99 from SoulCal @ Republic, and is a delightful item of clothing, which is great for when tanning. I love the bottom section of this tee-shirt, as the intricate design is just brilliant.

Ceci n'est pas une bicycle. That is the French (i think?!?) print below the lovely bicycle design. This unusual, yet strikingly wonderful top is from Urban Outfitters, and costs £28. I like the simple colour scheme, so as anything can be worn with this top, but it is a bit expensive for what it is.

This oversized vest top has one of the most astonishingly intricate, yet beautiful prints I have ever seen! It's called Burntout Techno, at is priced at £22, from my favourite, Topshop. The colour scheme and shape is good, meaning this top can be worn with pretty much anything.

Part 2: Skirts

A lovely vibrant skirt, named the Pirate Basque, what better to hang out at the beach in? Also, it's only £20, and is long enough to not be too revealing, yet short enough to tan! This skirt is from Topshop, and with it's pretty seaside colour and ruffled shape, this is the perfect skirt with any accessories, and for any occasion.

Hollister, again! This time, in a skirt, Wipeout Beach. At £34, this is a little pricy for a skirt, though it has a lovely colour scheme and length, and can also be worn in winter with tights, I guess. However, the downsides are the colour scheme may be hard to accessorize with due to brightness clashings, and the price.

A beautiful elegant skirt, yet named Pins and Needles? This wonderful skirt costs £28, and is from Urban Outfitters. I love the English Rose colour scheme, which also appears in the Next dress in my last post. The shape is lovely, and I like how it is brought in at the waist, so as not to appear baggy.

I fell in love with this skirt when I first saw it, in Mango, costing £32.90. It's called Ruffle in Lichen, although I believe it was available in other colours too. I think this skirt is lovely for summery night-time walks, or some form of hiking holiday! You can't normally get away with a skirt for walking, but this skirt shows it's adventurous side, and I think it would do perfectly :)
This skirt is called Coral Navaho, and has a lovely colour scheme to match a nice, unique name. It is from Miss Selfridge, and costs £28. The colours are bright, and an unusual match, but this might make it hard to find accessories that won't clash. However, the blues and oranges in this skirt do look lovely together, and this skirt is a perfect shape and length too.

Are we looking forward to summer?

Part 1: Dresses


This dress is called 1st Jetty, and is from Hollister, priced £40. I think the shape is a little plain, and may look nicer with a ribbon around the waist, but that is just my opinion. The colour scheme is absolutely lovely, nice and bright without causing clash or eyesore, so I think this dress is great for almost any occasion, as the intensity of its dressiness can be changed by styling with accessories.

This dress is called Pearl Street, another lovely Hollister sundress. This dress, however, costs £50. I like the colour scheme a lot, and the floral pattern. I think the shape is very nice, and I love the halter neck style for this dress, it just gives the dress a lovely beach worthy kick. It would probably look best with simply flip flops, because I would personally find it hard to accessorize to match this dress, and the risks of mismatching are high when you wear a patterned dress.

This dress is called the Pick'n'Mix dress, and with a lovely oceanic colour scheme, I think this dress is perfect for exotic holidays, or just a relaxing day. It's very calming, and cool, and the floaty shape is quite pretty. This is available from and costs only £26.95. This dress can be good for nights out with heels and shrugs, or with flipflops for the daytime look.

This printed sundress is from Next, and costs £22. I love the pattern to this dress, it is very girly, elegant, and has the English Rose look, which is absolutely beautiful, and isn't likely to clash, yet never looks too plain.

I decided to say, before I describe this dress in my opinion, it is only available in teenage sizes. It costs just £16.00 though, from New Look. I think this dress is lovely for a summery night out, it's floral pattern is great amongst the black background, and the shape is nice, but seeing as it is strapless, it is more for the dressy occasion.
