all Dorothy Perkins

So I quickly popped into town today with my mum for a few necessary bits and bobs and, accidentally, bought this Dorothy Perkins lace/crochet top. And you know when you buy a piece and you instantly imagine a million scenarios it could feature in?! I immediately thought that it'd look best with denim shorts, obvy, and a bundle of gold jewellery. Throw on some sunnies and cute pair of sandals et voila!

I've included the tights in there for obvious reasons - a British summer is kind of an oxymoron and to be honest, I want to start wearing this outfit about... now? So tights would be neccessary. As would a fair amount of knitwear. But actually, did anyone else feel the warmth today? Lovely stuff.

I've also forgot to say - thank you to everyone who's filled out my survey for university. I'm so thankful and am having such fun reading your responses. If you haven't yet done it and would like to, you can here.

Also, thank you for everybody's sweet comments yesterday. Due to my current problems, my plans have irrevocably changed. Let's just say I'm hoping to wear far more outfits like the one above, which can only be a good thing even if it feels quite the opposite right now. More on my plans another time...

  2. It seems like it was a nice day all over England, from the blog posts I'm reading (including mine, haha)!
    Love the top, and the way you've styled it. I can't wait for my first English summer... and glad I read your take on it! I'll have to invest in more tights.

  9. That top is so lovely! You're right about it going well with the shorts, and true the british weather = pull out the tights haha! I prefer wearing tights none the less though so I never mind really.

    Done your survey, was straight to the point which I liked and was fun to think back on an adventure. :)
