My love for gingham in the summer

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

Yeh yeh, more gingham, but come on guys this one is a good’un, this jumpsuit from ASOS is like wearing a giant gingham clown suit, and it is kind of reminiscent of one. Honestly though this stretchy lovely jumpsuit is so comfortable as there are no zips (instantly you know there is going to be stretch for days).

My other current obsession is shirred everything, tops, dress…everything! I think that is what drew me to this jumpsuit to start with. Also lets not forget the wide legs which is honestly a style that is flattering on every body shape (even though as you girls know, I don’t believe dressing for your body shape, I think you should wear whatever hell you want, and dress for your style).

Finally we’ve got to talk these shoes, embroidered goodness, and even ties up the legs!!! What more is needed in a shoe! I loved the contrast of the gingham against the embroidery, pretty busy, but there is nothing wrong with that in my eyes. Then this straw bag from Zara, I hopeeeee that this beaut is still available when this post goes live because its the most perfect summer bag and only £19.99 which is insane.

Summer holiday planning with Shein

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

It’s a big Shein haul for you today guys, you know I love this brand and I have been thinking about my up and coming holiday to America for the last few months, so I thought why not start planning for it now!

I choose to purchase this button-up tie front dress and I absolutely love it, I love the tie front section, the buttons down the front and the midi length style (because girls, I know you know its either boobs or legs, ain’t nobody got time for both). I have this in a medium and its the most perfect comfy fit. I styled this dress with these lace-up sandals from Topshop, which weirdly twist as you walk…..meh they look good, even if your bare feet are on the actual floor 90% of the time!

The next thing I bought in my mini Shein haul is this stripped midi skirt, a really good dupe for a version I saw in Zara a couple of months ago. I will always be drawn to a midi skirt because I think they are just so easy to wear, no riding up, no potential butt cheeks falling out of the bottom! I know I always say how affordable Shein are, but just to remind you guys, this skirt was only £18.98…..

For me a classic combination (since I was about 12, is there an age limit on this sort of thing?!) is a midi skirt and a cropped top. This basic top is from New Look (and £3 in the sale!) and I love the 90’s style square neckline, plus a bit of blue on blue is always a winner in my eyes.

Clearly I have gone for a blue theme here, and this was genuinely a subconscious thing, I obviously like blue a lot! You guys know that I also love embroidery, and this embroidered dress is me in dress form! I am a UK size 8/10 and this is a size medium, it fits perfectly. I love a smock style dress (mainly because I can eat more food than I probably should).

This dress is my version of effortless dressing, and I am so excited to see what else I can find on Shein, mainly lots of items to add to my ever growing collection of embroidery & blue 🙂

The Zara Playsuit That Looks Like a Dress

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

From first look you can be forgiven for thinking that this playsuit is indeed a dress, but actually it has little shorts under the top layer. This is actually completely necessary as the top layer is really very short. I love that Zara have taken this style of dress/playsuit and made it their own, I actually haven’t seen this style of playsuit in any other high street store.

The embroidery at the top of this playsuit is so cute, and it is actually very well made, considering that for a whole outfit it will only cost you £29.99! I also love the lace-up deal on the back, such a cute little detail, which can always be expected from a Zara piece. Really excited to wear this playsuit right into summer and also on my holiday to America later this year. To let you guys know I am a UK size 8/10, I have this in a small and it is perfect.

Last but not least my little silver Topshop sandals, they are such a staple item for me, and unfortunately sold out now as I bought them in the sale a while back I will link similar shoes down below). I actually love a metallic sandal for spring summer for something a little more unexpected.

Pinafores and Fancy Shirts As We Move Into Summer

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

I know what you are thinking, Grace you are obsessed with embroidery, and it’s true, I think this season pretty much everything I own is embroidered in some way! Both the shirt and the pinafore are from Romwe, which is rapidly becoming one of my brands to shop online. You guys know I love affordable pieces and Romwe is everything you could want, the amount of choice on the site is amazing!

My absolute favourite item here is this white embroidered shirt, it can be worn with absolutely anything, high-waisted mom jeans, or the item I think I will try it with next, my high-waisted embroidered skirt which is also from Romwe. This black cord pinafore dress is a staple for me and I can’t wait to wear it with a flared sleeve top and a pair of ankle boots. Romwe sizes do run a little small, I am a UK size 8/10, I have this in a medium & it fits perfectly.

I know you guys have seen this shoes before but they are probably not going to be coming off my feet any time soon. These studded beauties are from Topshop and are one of the most comfortable pairs of heels that I own, plus they look amazing with most outfits.
