Necklace – Oxfam
Jeans – Levi Curve

Ring – Vintage

Necklaces – Topshop and gift
Wedges – Cheap shoe shop

Even though I took my holiday as a break from blogging etc I did find myself getting my fiance to photograph every outfit I wore in the evening! Old habits die hard I guess. We only had our compact with us – no SLR so sorry for the flash but I wanted to share some of my new summer purchases which I got to wear in the Canaries.
I bought the Topshop sun vest with some of my Birthday vouchers and I love it! It has a great aztec bright print and is loose so I’m wearing it over a black vest.  I pretty much lived in my dyed blazer from last year as there was a chill in the air in the vening but daytime was as hot as 28 so I’ve come back with a great tan!
The Matalan dress was also a gift for my birthday which my fiance bought me after I sent him the link. I’d looked it out online because of a tweet by Sophie and I had to have it! Its even better in real life and fits beautifully! Its only £18 and comes in green and coral too. These wedges came from a cheap shoe shop and are great because they’re not high at all but look great and strappy for summer.
Cant wait to wear all these items when it gets warm enough here in the uk.
What cant you wait to wear this summer???

Bang on Style
