Summer loving.

So, despite the lack of decent weather we get over in the UK during Summer, every year I find myself around Spring time, spending my money on floral pieces, dresses, shoes and accessories.
These are just a few of  the pieces I've picked up lately.~

Forever21 is one of my favourite stores at the moment, I feel so lucky I live in Birmingham, it means I have access to so many shops. I picked up both of these from Forever21. On the left is a floral, bandeau dress, which I can't remember the exact price for, but it was under £15. I loved it straight it and wanted it in different colours, but I stopped myself. It fits lovely and can be dressed up with black tights and heels, or dressed casually with sandals and a denim jacket.
On the right is another floral item! This time a blue playsuit, which I believe was around £11. It has button detail down the centre and a tie at the waist. When the weather isn't that good, I would wear it with black tights, leather jacket and black boots. When the weather is good, I'd wear with ballet flats or sandals.


I have to say, I haven't been a fan of H&M for a while. It seemed that for two years, I could never find anything I wanted there, but not long ago I went in and found loads! This was my first purchase. A beige tube skirt, with black horizontal stripes. it's flattering, perfect for summer and was only £4!


This dress, which was my second purchase from H&M, I feel in love with immediately. I've wanted a cream dress for as long as I can remember, but I've never been lucky enough to find one I really like, until now. I got it in a size small, but sadly it is still a bit big around my waist, I'm not too worried about this, as I can just sew it to fit better. If my memory serves me correct, this was about £8, which I think is a great price.


Now to shoes and accessories. After walked around town all day looking for some brown sandals, I came across these in New Look for £15. They are a great colour, as I think Tan brown is overly common these days and I will definitely be wearing them a lot this summer.


I thought I should have a bag to match my sandals, plus I already have a black bag and a white bag, so I thought I needed a brown one too. I found this in Primark, for about £4 and although it looks quite small, I can fit everything I need in it.


I'm loving the feather trend that has came back. I still have peacock feather earrings from last time, but I saw these for about £2 and had to have them. They are a lovely green/blue colour. Again, I saw this daisy clip + bobble and loved it. I think it can make outfits look really summery, even when the weather is rubbish.

Making this post has made me want to go shopping again, I will resist the urge to, I spend enough money on clothes as it is.
