when i met you in the summer

Dress- Zara // Arm Accessories (earrings!) - Primark

Hey dolls, 

How exciting is it that it is nearly summer!! As soon as Coachella starts springing up on my social media feeds I can't help but feel 1. Super jel and 2. Summer is coming! I have seen so many gorgeous outfits already and I cant wait to go and get my own for festivals in the UK this year - make sure you have a look, so much festival inspo! 

I recently found this beautiful dress in Zara (how lush is Zara at the minute though?!) and I decided it had to be mine as I had been searching for a nice dress to wear at a wedding abroad this summer. I thought this would be perfect as its pretty light weight and not too heavy for a whole day in the heat. I always have a problem finding a dress for weddings as I am obsessed with wearing creams & whites which isn't ideal with this being the brides colour *siiigh* ....anyway, I was super happy when I found this mint one which I am going to wear with tan/gold shoes and accessories to finish it off. The gold arm accessories I have on are actually earrings from Primark (lol), however when I was trying these on they were SO heavy on my ears I decided I couldn't wear them. No one wants droopy ear lobes! I put them on my arms for some reason and voila - some gold arm bands! I don't like seeing things go to waste :D 

Have you been in Zara lately?

Mini Boho Haul

All- Primark

Hey dolls, 
So as summer approaches, I always find myself getting a little too excited and keen for topping up my summer wardrobe. Although my summer wardrobe is always full to the brim, I constantly need more and I am so bad for throwing things away (totally ruthless - I hoard nothing!) which then gives me some sort of mental acceptance in my head that it is now okay to buy even more outfits. Confessions of a shopaholic, I am. So I had a little browse in Primark the other day and fell in love with a few holiday essentials, that I obviously needed ;) . As soon as I see a bit of sunshine I feel the need to transform into everything bohemian which is exactly what happened to me on this day. However, I did get all of this for just £35 which is a bargain if I ever saw one. 

I originally went in for a statement necklace (they have so many gorgeous ones in at the moment) and then ended up getting greedy and walking round the shop with various items hanging off me. I then picked up some aviators and standard gold hoops which were only £2 each. I then ventured upstairs to the shoe section and low and behold fell in love with these tan gladiator sandals - perfect for holidays! I then spotted this gorgeous printed bag just sat by itself, staring longingly at me so I had to get it, right?! I will be using this for all things travel and it will be ideal for carting all the crap I carry around with me! At just £8, how could I resist! So if you are looking for some holiday accessories, I would go and have a look as there is quite a few cute bits in! 

Have you bought anything here recently?
