Summer is here for a lot of us! With days well spent shopping, sunbathing and exploring and late nights at BBQs and parties therethere is a lot going on! Here are some of my favorite outfits put together especially for the summer with some of my favourite key pieces.

Off The Shoulder

I love this little cotton blouse! The crochet neckline and cut-out shoulders give this blouse a playful but sexy vibe so you don't end up looking like your 10 year old self (admit it, you know exactly  the top I'm talking about, I bet you even kept it to wear as a summer-y crop top. Cringe, we've all been there!) The bottom hem is also elasticated so it can be worn on the hips or the waist like below. I snapped this up from Primark.

Crochet Cool

The blouse looks super cute with these! I love how these are kind of skirt-like too. These crochet bottoms are lined with a similar coloured cotton so your undies won't peep out. I'm not sure of the fit of these. I'm wearing a size 8 here with the band on the top of the hips but I could've went with a size 6 for a more high-waist look as the band is quite slack. But I still absolutely love these, from Topshop.

In the (Paper) Bag

When I was in Topshop I actually tried on a pair of camel-coloured paper-bag slacks which I loved but I couldn't get a size to fit my little waist and long legs  *sobs*.  But I found these in Primark and I just loved them! There are available in white too but none in my size, Ah Primark! They fit really well and aren't small in the thigh like you'd imagine.

Sunflowers & Breton Stripes

How cute is this little jumper?! It is sooooo soft too. I am so into Breton Stripes right now and this is just perfect for the summer because it's light and airy but the sunflowers just make it feel so fun! I found this in Primark too (Show some Primark luuurve!) It's so cute and it goes with everything.

Those are just a few of my favourite pieces to wear this summer. Being out in the sunshine has resulted in lots of whites and cool clothes! I also love kimonos, bikinis you can wear as tops and leopard print details. What have you got planned inside your wardrobe for summer? I'd love to know!
