Can someone please explain to this gal how exactly it's June already? I feel like it was new years, I had a drink, nursed my hangover and I blinked, and now all of a sudden we're half way through the year and it's June?? I can't really deal.
It also struck me, seeing as we're halfway through the year now and I've embarrassingly made NO progress on my new years resolutions. I wanted to learn how to use my camera on manual mode, blog consistently and start up youtube again. I've embarrassingly done NONE of these and I really need to get my arse into action.
So, June! Although as I write this post there is enough torrential rail to literally form a monsoon in the middle of Hammersmith (and I am now carrying most of that water in my hair and boots) I am all about the spring time pastel looks right now.
I feel like my style is slowly drifting to become more and more parisian, minimalist prints, bretons and simple block colours all make an appearance and I'm totally digging the embroidery trend too (better late than never I guess!?)
For embroidered pieces I have been loving this embroidered grey tee from Topshop it kind of feels like the perfect summer tshirt as it's super effortless and could pretty much be teamed with anything to spruce up some basics with an on trend piece. Another take on the trend is this draped blouse from Missguided I am so living for these loose fitting blouses right now, and the drawstrings on this make it such a good summer piece and totally festival appropriate.
Going back to Parisian style - was this Topshop Peachy Top made for me because I could totally swear it was. Breton stripes with a sassy logo is basically just me in a tshirt, so I kinda want to wear this with everything I own forever.
Now let's talk swimwear. I don't actually have any summer holidays booked this year, but I'll be visiting Sydney at the end of the year (just in time for summer yaaaaaaaaay) and I am so ready to hit the beach in these little beauties. I've always loved white one piece swimsuits, I think there's something super classic 90s about them and I am all about that life. This ASOS White Swimsuit is basically everything, it's super simple and even better for my fellow full busted gals it's by Wolf & Whistle who do AMAZING pieces for those of us who are a little more top heavy. (strictly B-F cup) Another one I'm lusting after ridiculously is this Gingham beauty (also ASOS because really are we that surprised?) Is the Gingham thing coming to an end? I don't really know, but I know that I am so in love with this trend still and I basically just wanna wear Gingham everything - this swimsuit being no exception.
And yup you spotted it - ANOTHER GINGHAM PIECE. I feel like blue gingham is totally having a moment,and this jumpsuit is just perfect for the warmer summer / spring days. I love the low cut back, making it a little less 5 year old me at school and a little more sexy, and I just think it's such a cute all rounder of a summer piece.
What pieces are you guys lusting after this month? Let me know in the comments!
