Summer crop top I can’t stop thinking about

I saw this crop top online a few weeks ago as a coming soon item and have been desperate to get my hands on it ever since.

Summer Fiesta Embroidered Top – & Other Stories (£55)

I love the boxy shape and beautiful embroidery. Although embroidery has been a huge trend recently I love how this design is different to the floral embroidery which is everywhere at the moment (not that I’m not loving the floral embroidery trend too!)

What do you think of crop tops for summer?

Back to basics

Blogging is something I’ve always wanted to do but always struggled to be consistent with. I would like to start posting on this blog again but need to make the task less daunting so I’ve decided to take it back to basics and post easy, simple posts as often as I can. 

I’ve always been into fashion and this is the main reason why I started this blog in the first place so I want to go back to this and post fashion inspiration, images and items I’m currently lusting after.

Although it’s currently very grey and wet, the weather has been great recently and has made me start thinking about holiday pieces and my summer wardrobe.

Here’s some items currently on my summer wish list…

Pineapple print dress – & Other Stories (£69)

Button-down Denim Skirt – & Other Stories (£39)

Tab Detail Braided Leather Bag – & Other Stories (£89)

Rib Tencel T-shirt – & Other Stories (£19)

Which is your favourite item? What’s on your summer wish list? 

20’s Gatsby style – Zara fringed top

The fringing trend is very popular at the moment and this top is a great way to wear it.

Zara fringed top £25.99

I’ve seen a very similar top, skirt and dress to this at Whistles but as it’s such a statement piece I wouldn’t want to spend as much on it so this Zara top is a great alternative.

There are so many different ways it could be styled and it would instantly make you look very chic and put together.  

What do you guys think of this top? How would you style it?

Simple Whites – Zara White Crackled Leather Handbag

Crackled Leather Handbag £39.99

This bag has the simplistic Stockholm street style vibe to it which I adore.

Looks like it’s made from beautiful, soft leather and looks much more expensive than the £39.99 price tag, especially since it’s 100% leather.

Apologies for blogging about yet another Zara buy, but think this is going to be one of those special Zara buys which sell out straight away!

90s Grunge Trend: Topshop Shimmer Reverse Seam Tee

Topshop Shimmer Reverse Seam Tee

I loved the 90s grunge trend which was very popular at the end of last year and the skater trend which is very popular at the moment. It’s not my usual style but I love how it looks and like to incorporate individual, on trend items into my wardrobe.

I think this t-shirt is the perfect way to do this. I love the colours, gold is my favourite colour, and the pink/gold/green duo chrome effect looks beautiful. The pink also makes it a bit more delicate and girly, but still fits in with the grunge trend. The roll up sleeves and white seam zip on the back are also great details, making the top a bit more luxe.

I would style this with some Topshop MOTO Vintage Mom jeans and some white peep-toe heels.

What do you guys think of this t-shirt? How would you style it?

Lusting after….. 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli trapeze bag

3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli medium leather trapeze bag

Have loved the black version of this bag for a while now but love it even more in these colours.

I’m going through a bit of a navy phase at the moment, and think the white fits in well with the current winter whites/ white jeans trend, as well as being perfect to take the bag through to summer.

Love it!
