Unless I’m mistaken, I remember promising you guys a more summery outfit post a fair while back, non? Well the combination of my perchant for dressing like the grim reaper and the great british summer hasn’t quite allowed me to crack the shorts out until very recently. Luckily the good weather came right on time as I ordered a brand new pair of shorts just last week. The shorts in question have got to be my all time favourites. Light weight, black (but with print), loose and figure flattering, all rolled into £11.99 from Missguided. My bank account threw a party to celebrate my bargain hunting genius and the boyfriend has requested I purchase another pair in the same style because he’s worried that I won’t wear anything but these all summer. Well, if I must….
In addition to my massive Missguided stalk, I’ve been browsing the sale like a mad woman on ASOS, and ended up picking up two cami’s in black and grey for around the same price as an Essie nail polish. I can’t remember the time I was this good at sale shopping, and seeing as I was being so good, I treated myself to a new pair of (full price) shoes. Although I nabbed them on ASOS, my black flatforms are actually a New Look brand, and are the perfect every day heel. High enough to make you feel fancy, low enough to be perfect for any occasion.
Now I’m not sure what the weather will have in store for the boys graduation this week, but if the weather holds out the shorts and shoes might just have to make an appearance. Teamed with a blazer I might just about qualify for smart casual!
