outfit of the day: sun!

When I woke up to a bright and sunny London on Wednesday I really wasn't sure what to wear. I think I've just got so used to wrapping up warm that I feel so unprepared for the summer! I still want to wear black and not have to bare every inch of skin but equally I don't want to feel a sticky mess on the Tube...

So when my boyfriend and I went for a tasty lunch on Wednesday I chose to wear this. I do love this outfit but I have to say that I still was quite hot!


Shoes - New Look
Leggings - H&M
Bag - Zara
Top - Zara
Necklace - H&M
Sunglasses - Brick Lane
Bracelet - Gift from my boyfriend's parents from Kenya

(Well, I think I get the award for the most awkward poser ever!)


I love these black platform wedges. I bought them last year so I doubt they'll be available from New Look any more but there's so many similar ones around at the moment such as these ones from River Island. I have my eye on so many wedges at the moment so I can't wait to maybe treat myself to some more when I get paid.

I'm sure you all recognise the bag as it's been featured on lots of blogs recently. I've had it for a couple of months now and I'm actually surprised by how well it's wearing. The strap is so thin that I thought it would break really quickly but so far so good!

I think my favourite thing about this outfit though has to be the top. I love a good big slouchy tee and this is as big as it comes. It has massive bat wing sleeves and a thin mesh panelled deep v at the back which makes it a bit more interesting. I did try to find it on the Zara website but it doesn't seem to be available any more.

I actually really like doing 'outfit of the days' so when my exams are over (and my boyfriend's AKA personal photographer) I'll try and do some more. Hopefully I'll be in more suitable summer attire!
