Having finished college, you would think I’d be spending my days having long lie-ins, breakfasting in bed and abusing my Netflix subscription, right? Wrong. I’ve got an itch, an itch that won’t go away. Yeah okay, I like the odd lie-in and a lazy evening spent watching an episode of Gossip Girl or Orange is The New Black but I have this persistent desire to be constantly productive, to actually be doing something. I like being proactive, I like feeling that I’m achieving something. I wrote myself a long to-do list this week and thankfully, I’ve managed to tick off most of what I wrote down. But for me, it’s not enough. I know that my constant strive for success might one day be the death of me but I’m hoping that in the meantime, it’ll be the making of me. Okay sorry, bit deep for a Sunday evening.
1. A little poolside layout – my girly holiday is in 8 days. 8 DAYS! So much to do, so much to buy and so much to think about – help! Featuring sandals and jewellery from Topshop, Cosmopolitan magazine, sunglasses from TK Maxx and bikini from New Look
2. Styling my gorgeous ‘Tara Black Trim Floral Kimono’ gifted to me by Miss Pap. I absolutely adore the brightly coloured print and the lightweight chiffon fabric; it will be perfect for throwing over a bikini poolside! To get 10% off your order at www.misspap.co.uk, use the code ‘JUNE10OFF’ at the checkout. Also wearing Whistles t-shirt, Jack Wills jeans, Moda in Pelle shoes, H&M necklace & ASOS belt (bag from my holiday to Thailand)
3. A quiet morning spent writing and editing with Dr Stuart’s ‘Skin Purify’ tea. My skin is absolutely awful at the moment (I’m assuming it’s the hot weather and consequent sweat causing blocked and dirty pores) so every little helps!
6. In love with my ‘Fancy Cleated Platforms‘ gifted to me by ShuSole. I can’t get enough of pastel colours at the moment so I just adore this baby pink colour. I have a feeling I’m gonna get a lot of wear out of these beauties this summer!
I’ve been wanting to do more outfit posts for ages now but the lack of a photographer in my life makes things a little difficult. I recently bought a tripod and haven’t yet got to grips with it but bear with me – this is still very much a learning process. For now, be sure to follow my Instagram for regular fashion updates!
Love, Beth xo.
