British summer dressing in spots and stripes













It's summer!!!!! After weeks of rain, cold and downright miserable weather, it finally became summer about a week ago in Blighty... at last! So the problem I then have with the office I work in is that it gets incredibly hot when the sun is out and the temperature rises - no air con of course - so I have to be dressed to stay as cool as possible. It's proper freezing in the winter and boiling in the summer in there; the temperature is so rarely just right.

Anyway enough moaning...! Although I never need an excuse to break out the brights, it's nice to pile on the jewellery and try a new updo - this time I've done my hair in the side plaits and up on top of my head rather than using the fake plaited hairband I wore here. I think it's my new fave hot weather hairdo; you may be seeing it a lot more, folks ;)

Happy, happy Tuesday, hope everyone is well!



Tank: La Redoute, Trousers: Oasis at ASOS also I like these floral ones, Wedges: ASOS similar, Necklace: Mimco at House of Fraser, Bag: Next, Bracelets: Accessorize / Urban Outfitters / ASOS / New Look / H&M, Watches L-R: Debenhams / Debenhams / Debenhams, Rings L-R: H&M / ASOS / H&M / ASOS, Nails: Barry M Bright Purple / Nails Inc Black Taxi, Toenails: Barry M Cyan Blue

  6. Thanks for stopping by Catherine! I enjoyed reading your 'about me', 'about the blog', 'down memory lane' tabs....I turned 30 last year so I know that feeling! I had anxiety about that for 1.5 years. Oh well, can't stop it! Following now. ;-)

  7. I'm so glad you finally have nice weather! I love your pattern mixing, but my favorite part of the outfit is that lightning bolt ring. I'm not normally a ring person, but that one reminds me of Harry Potter and so of course now I want it :)

  11. Your office sounds like my house - always either freezing or sweltering, never any in between!

    I really, really love your hair like this, and am thinking I need to try this style out myself. And also find some trousers like these - seriously amazing!

  20. A fun outfit, but your style a little break. I like the shirt and I like many complementary colors. The hairstyle is also different from your style, but it's great.
