05.09.2013- What I Wore Today #145

Oh London, you with your crazy heatwaves! Just when I was certain that it was time to surrender my sunglasses for another year, the weather down south has taken a rather sweltering turn- and whilst I'm sure it won't be this tropical for long, it's certainly a lovely way to bid a fond farewell to summer (as well as the perfect opportunity to indulge in a spot of frozen yogurt!) As I've mentioned in a fair few posts of late, keeping cool in the city when it's this warm can prove quite tricky, so I've definitely been opting for something of a 'less is more' approach to try and avoid turning a lovely shade of lobster as the temperatures climb:

Blouse- Zara
Trousers- c/o Clothing at Tesco
Shoes- Topshop
Bag- c/o Warehouse
Sunglasses- Topshop

I know, I know- another pair of crazy sunglasses. With friends like Aisling (aka the sunglasses queen!), it's easy to get obsessed with accessories, and this pair are a recent purchase from Topshop which may have crept their way into my shopping bag pre-payday- a splurge that's proved quite savvy now that the sunshine's back! This Zara blouse is another new addition to my wardrobe- and I'm sure it's not the last thing I'll be snapping up from their autumn drop. I love the printed detail here and the lightweight, semi-sheer fabric makes this the perfect piece for keeping the heat at bay; it's also something which I can't wait to start styling with some of my chunkier cardigans and staple blazers as autumn approaches. For a simple, relaxed look, I teamed it with a favourite pair of trousers from Clothing at Tesco, my much loved flats from Topshop and Warehouse tote.

Have you made any special purchases recently?

  3. Cute! Cute! That tee is so unusual! I really like it! Enjoy the heatwave and the chance to wear your pretty new sunglasses, although you always find yourself needing sunglasses more in the winter, curse you low sun, I just feel silly wearing sunglasses in winter.
