Now playing: “Romeo” by Chairlift
Last Sunday, the lush weather had everyone out and about in Southampton. It’s amazing how good weather can make such a difference to people’s moods – you could just tell that it had everyone feeling good vibes.
I spent the day meandering through town, shopping with friends (shopping of the ‘window’ variety, of course – you know it’s nearly time to go home when you’re running out of le student loan), ciders on a rooftop terrace and soaking up the sun in the park.
It was so hot that I had to bare my pasty arms for the first time this year, in my sleeveless turtleneck top from Missguided. I paired it a recent purchase of mine, my favourite pleated Topshop trousers. I’ve gotten so many compliments off of these – they’re versatile, loose-fitting and airy for hot summer days, and they’re super comfortable – seriously, it’s like wearing pyjamas. I predict that these are going to be a huge hit this summer, having already seen uncannily identical versions in Zara and New Look that day. I couldn’t find them on the Topshop website, but keep an eye out in the shops as they’re bound to be there.
Accessories, accessories, accessories. Finally, now I’ve finally finished my second year at uni and all of my assignments are done, I don’t have to lug my laptop/snack-filled tote bag about. I chose my Zara cross-body bag (find it in updated spring colours here) and my go-to Lacoste tennis trainers (sandals would’ve been a better choice that day, but I didn’t think to bring any to uni…my bad).
Don’t forget your sunnies on a day like this! Mine are from ASOS (find some like mine here).
Show me what you’ve been wearing this fine May!
