what i'm wearing:
topshop bracelet set* (similar here)
checked shirt; liams (similar here)
primark double band sliders

just wanna start of and apologise first of all that i didn't get a post up yesterday. most of you probably don't realise that i post every other day but to me it's something i'm keen to stick to, but yesterday i had totally forgotten to schedule something as i knew i was out shooting for the most of the day and then by the time i had gotten in after the gym (by this point it was about 7-8 o'clock) to have put a post together and made it live it would almost be the end of the day. so i decided to wait until the earliest possible opportunity on a glorious friday morning to do it for you instead! 

it's pretty funny to me that i've decided to pair a designer t-shirt (my first ever designer clothing - ah!) with a £3 sale skirt... maybe the world of high fashion just is not ready for me yet. i can imagine that i'll definitely have a few more outfit posts featuring this t-shirt as it's the perfect basic to wear all year round. this is a super casual look as it was absolutely scorching hot yesterday and i just couldn't even bear to put jeans on. so even if you don't think this look is very you but want to know how to style up a basic white tee, don't worry i'll be popping more up soon. it was sunny it obviously meant my new absolute beautiful sunglasses had to get an outing! cat-eye, mirrored and stella mccartney could there be a more perfect combination? they are so oversized on my tiny face but i love 'em and i hope you do too! also, with the code RED10 if there are any sunglasses that catch your eye on www.redhotsunglasses.co.uk you can get 10% off. anyway, i know this outfit isn't massively fashion forward or "street style" but i like to show you every part of how i style myself. whether it's dressed up or like todays post; dressed down. let me know what you think and i hope you have a lovely weekend. speak to you on sunday. x
