I feel like these trousers were the find of the month. TBH I'm really not a fan of River Island. I rarely find anything in there that I like anymore. But, I ventured in there with a friend and spotted these hiding on a sale rail right in the back corner. 12 quid, well comfy, how could I say no?? My fave thing about them is how super high waisted I can get them. I'm ngl, the more up my waist I can get a pair of shorts/trousers, the more love I will have for them. I just can't not wear high waisted anymore. I think half the stuff I buy (definitely skirts) isn't even designed to be worn almost up to my neck, but I just can't not.

Anyway, I digress. If I'm wearing a CK bralette as a crop top (which I'm getting more and more comfortable with) I feel I need something above my belly button cos there's just tooooooo much belly on show otherwise. This is gonna be my Thursday outfit. Just comfy for travelling in, and lugging heavy bags of shit and boxes of wine half a mile across a field. Who else loves a box of wine for festivals? God send, that is.

Even though I've been moving towards colourful prints recently (watch out for ma Bestival outfits), I still love a good old all black outfit. Can't really go wrong with all black. I did go through a phase in uni where basically every single night out outfit I wore was all black. Talk about stuck in a rut. I'm glad I got out of that one.

Bar the shoes, I got this whole for £50. Ocean Credit Cards are currently running a project to help people style up for summer without worrying out finances. I'm totally down for that as I am always looking out for style bargains. Sometimes I raid the charity shops (I need to start doing that more often like I used to!), but at the mo I am luving the summer sales in all the shops. Topshop in particular, their sale is soooo good, and every time I go into my local Topshop, there seems to be more stuff added onto the sale rails. I've picked up some insane bargains, a couple being these ridiculous pom pom earrings which I dug out for about £2 (whhaaatttttt), and this mesh Escapology top which came to a total of 12 measly quid. Topshop sale, you did me good.

LFW with George


Shorts - Topshop
Trainers - Asos



Who remembers Umbro? Yeah I know, bit of a throwback. George gave me the challenge of putting together a LFW worthy outfit with some of their clothes, and this is what I give ya.

I had a look at both the women's and men's sections (are you even doing oversized right if you don't buy from the men's?) and spotted this Umbro tee. First thought? Buy the biggest size and wear that thing like a dress. I do love a good oversized tee/shirt as a dress. 

And the hat? Well it's paisley print and hides my dodgy, slightly grown out fringe. It wins for me.  


Don't worry, I am wearing clothes under the tee... I found this sports bra (yes, sports bra!!) in the workout section and died a bit. It makes a perfect little crop top. The sports bra bit is kind of built in on the inside and then there's the pretty pastel layer on top. Although let's be real, I won't be working out in this, just wearing as a little top...
