Hurry up Summer


Oh hi there!
right, I don't even know where I've been, well, I do, but basically I've been going through such a whirlwind of things lately I just haven't managed the whole blogging thing, which is a shame, I've pretty much missed the whole christmas season (clothes/makeup/blogging - wise), and I'm pretty disappointed in myself!
However, to give my self a little credit, I have been working 3 days a week, along side commuting to Cardiff 3 days a week to study for uni. I never really realised how hard I was pushing myself until the shop I work in closed down Saturday and I have time to rest and reflect! 
Anyway anyway, here are a few things I'm lusting after lately, all I can think about is summer and when these disgusting dark mornings, 'layering' and bitter cold will GO. AWAY. In all honesty, if I could skip winter as a whole (including halloween, bonfire night, christmas, AND new year), I think I actually would, I am completely for frolicking around with shorts and a t-shirt as apposed to constantly shivering and tensing my body to keep warm (nightmare).

I'm still not too sure about this jumper, its not something I'd immediately pick up but I just thought it was so funny, and also looks too comfy to resist. I'd probably put a white collared shirt underneath or just a plain tee, I absolutely love these 50's hotpants, they're not too expensive for good old toppers either. Maybe I'm being a little too hasty with the sunglasses, but I can't stop thinking about festivals and antics of the summer lately, these sunglasses look pretty durable for all occasions! When I first saw these Vans, I was like 'what the hell they look so cool yet so ugly, how is this possible?' theres a girl at my uni who seems to rock these in a way I swear I could never find possible, but I do think they'd be a versatile pair to have, look pretty comfy too (and I'm all about comfort..).
I imagine wearing this outfit all year round, with tights and a leather jacket in the winter and bare legs in the summer.

BURN OUT LETTER TEE, £22.00
CARHARTT HAT, £20.00

Okay so I've been looking and looking for a pair of high waisted jeans that look really flattering but won't break the bank, these appear to have my name written all over them.. however I never see high waisted jeans in store to try? which is annoying.. but hey ho,  these seem a pretty nifty price for what they are so I may just have to order them! Carhartt hats... well, aren't these just everywhere at the moment? mainly on 'hipsters' heads or all over tumblr, however I knew I'd end up jumping on the 'hype' and ending up liking them, I don't think I'd necessarily get this colour.. a plain black one seems more fitting for my day to day dress sense. This letter tee from Topshop, I think, is really nice, I like the way its oversized/slightly sheer, definitely one for the S/S wardrobe! THESE SHOES, another 'hype' everyone seems to be jumping on, Nike Airs, I bought a pair during summer purely because I wanted something cheap and comfortable to walk in while my leg was still healing, however I've noticed since then they have just EXPLODED everywhere, which I like, as ugly as some may seem, I do like myself a good pair of 'creps' as some would say ;).

PETITE SPECKLE TEE MINI DRESS, £26.00

I already have a petite tee dress just like this from Topshop, but its slightly lighter... meh! I love the way it fits and is just the right length, it may make you look like a cute primary school girl, but most people seem to think I'm around the age of 15 anyway so who cares! I'm all for frilly socks, I think all in all I have about 12 pairs? I think they add such a effortless 'quirk', if you like, to an outfit. These black glitter trim ones are just cuteeeee. Also, Puma Sudes, I've been umming and ahhing over a pair for aaages, I just can't decide which colour I like, also the fact I know I can get them for nearly half the price in the juniors range (when they're actually in stock), always holds me back!

Sorry this isn't much of an interesting post, just thought I'd let everyone know I was still alive (and kicking, almost), and I should be back to this whole blogging business on a regular basis (I can't promise anything just yet, but who knows!), Hopefully now I can get my spark back :)
