Leather & lace

(Leather shorts, Topshop. Lace top, New Look. Studded sandals, Next. Sunglasses, Primark. Spike bracelet, New Look.)

I feel like I always start my blog posts with a chat about the weather, but... I think it might be summer? Finally! The sun is out and the air is warm and for the last few days (when I haven't been at work), I've been relaxing in the garden with a Corona and planning BBQs and holidays with friends. There's something about warm weather that puts everyone in a good mood and I find myself enjoying boring activities, like walking to the shops to run errands, just because it means I get to enjoy the sun.

Since the sun's made an appearance I realised I don't seem to have any sunglasses that aren't broken. I don't know how I manage it but I always break the arms off my sunglasses, which is really annoying. I suppose it might have something to do with the fact I only ever pay about £2 for them from Primark. Maybe. Anyway, I decided to get a new pair (£2.50 this time - pushed the boat out) and I feel like Mary-Kate Olsen in these bad boys. They're huge and stupidly round. I'm not 100% sure they suit me but, whatever. They're cool. 

I paired them with my leather shorts and an old lacy top to meet a gal pal for lunch yesterday. Lace and leather is the perfect combo is it not??! I actually bought the rose gold cuff whilst I was out and added it to my other wise jewellery-lacking outfit straight away. The spikes tied in with the little studs on my shoes and at about £2 in the sale I thought it was a pretty good shout.

What are you all up to this week? I'm starting my internship this Thursday which is pretty exciting. I'm trying to pick up as many hours at work as possible this summer, so along with blogging and interning hopefully the next few months will be quite productive! And maybe I'll get a holiday at the end of it to make it all worthwhile. 

Catch ya later!

  14. I feel like the strap around the ankles on your shoes adds a slightly more girly touch. Lace is girly, of course, but the leather gives a tough vibe that's softened by the shoes :)
