PEACH MELBA

Evening all! A bit of a late post tonight but wanted to show you all what I wore today. The weather started off pretty nice this morning, so me being optimistic decided to get the sunglasses out, but after about 10 minutes they were back in the bag again once Preston returned to its usual cloudy self. Anyhow, I really wanted to wear the new Levis cut offs I got at the Vintage fair yesterday so I teamed them with my favourite American Apparel tee (worn so much it's fading) and a lovely draped cardigan I got from Zalando. I've never really been a fan of waterfall cardigans but there was something about this one that drew me in. I don't know whether it's the summery ice cream colour or the soft fabric but I really really like this one. I'm not brave enough to bare the legs until the sun is well and truly out and a substantial amount of tan has been applied, so tights will do just fine for now. I also threw on my Topshop Alvin boots as I haven't worn them in a while and thought the gold studs complemented the peachy tones of the outfit nicely.


Tee - American Apparel
Cardigan - Zalando*
Shorts - Vintage Levis via Vintage Fair
Tights - Primark
Boots - Topshop
Sunglasses - Zalando*
Nails - Mint Choc Chip by 17 & Ibiza Mix by Models Own

The shorts were a steal at £10, and are a really nice length, meaning they can be rolled up a little or worn unfolded if I wanted to cover up a bit more. They're the perfect fit and a great colour for Summer. I've been on the hunt for a pair to replace some bleached ones I've had for years that are unfortunately covered in ink stains (I have no idea how), and these fit the bill nicely! I love the fact that they're a little high waisted, great for tucking tees in to create an hourglass shape, or worn with a crop top if you're feeling a little daring!

Have you got a favourite pair of denims for summer?

  4. This is such a wonderful outfit! Your glasses are great and I love how they match the perf colour of your cardigan! This is such a lovely spring outfit, we just need the sun to stay out long enough to keep the sunglasses out for more than 10 minutes now! Fingers crossed! xxx

  5. I have lots of pairs of shorts now (after initially swearing I would never be into shorts as I hate my legs!) but don't think I have a just denim pair.
