Okay I know it has been a week since I last wrote and published a post on my blog, but I’m not lying or making excuses when I say I’ve been really busy the last week.
The weekend I went away to the Lake District and although it was tiring due to climbing a huge mountain and driving for over 3 hours there and 5 hours back home it was amazing and a much-needed break.
At the moment I am suffering with tired legs from the walk, as well as from a chest infection which is pretty crap but I have the next two days off of work so I’ll be writing up and scheduling some blog posts, yes!
I realised when I was packing my weekend suitcase for the Lake District that I don’t really have many lighter coloured clothes, nor do I have many dresses for summer, I don’t have many longer pairs of shorts, or any cool looking summer t-shirts and it made me feel rubbish and worried about what I intend to wear during the rest of spring and summer this year. As well as that I’ll be going away to Bristol in less than a months time, as well as hopefully going to Fuerteventura in September for a long holiday away with my boyfriend and maybe some friends.
So! I have finally decided to have a look online at some shops to get a vague idea of what sort of style I would like to start going for during the summer times and it seems to be swaying towards skater boarder/surf boarder styles and a lot of the brands I have had my eye on lean towards these too.
So for today mind I am making a post about my fashion inspiration for spring and summer this year.
Although I do shop the high street shops for clothes when it comes to spring and summer, since getting with my boyfriend I’ve been able to start getting back into the style mentioned above, which I’ve worn a lot over the past 10 years.
Some favourite brands in particular are Vans, Element, DC and Animal.
There are some certain pieces of clothing by all of these brands that hold a certain style that I like, whether it be a baggy piece of clothing or a tighter piece. I’m going to share them all with you today!
- Baggy t-shirts
You can’t go wrong with a baggy t-shirt! It can keep you cool and prevent you from feeling clammy during warm days as well as hide your tummy if you aren’t so confident about it, like the way I am with my own. I have a lovely baggy t-shirt by Element that I bought in the January sales and still now it’s doing me a good job and I wore it for my mountain climb the weekend, it did a great job of keeping me cool! You can get these t-shirts from Primark too for less than £10 each if you don’t wish to pay a big price tag and in all sorts of colours. I have one in a dark blue and a cream colour.
I know the weather is getting warmer and with that sweaters should be put into the back of my wardrobe and left there until autumn and winter are upon us once more, but I just can’t! I love my sweaters, they’re that warm hug you crave when no one is around and are comfortable as hell! I wear them when the weather isn’t that warm, as well as in the evenings when the sun has gone done and I wish to sit outside. I live in my Animal sweater and I’m sure throughout spring and summer I’ll continue to do just that! As well as that one I also love my Spider Man sweaters from Forever 21, they do some awesome ones for a great price.
- Denim shorts
I have plenty of pairs of denim shorts and too right I should! They can be worn on their own with bare legs, or with a pair of black or patterned tights when it’s a little chilly or you feel a little conscious of your thighs (like I do). I have one pair of longer (just about the knee) shorts that I live in during the spring and summer when it’s really warm as I just feel too conscious to wear short shorts due to my thighs, but sometimes I just has to be done and at the right place, and with the right people I feel a little less paranoid. I do however want another pair of longer denim shorts, so that I don’t worry I’m too paranoid during holidays and such. You can pick these up ANYWHERE! I’ve always loved Topshop’s denim shorts, especially the American flag style, which I have one pair of and miss wearing terribly!
- A baggy hoodie
I don’t often wear jackets or coats during the spring and summer as it’s usually too warm to and as I get warm quite easily I often opt for a hoodie to keep me warm on my travels. One I’ve been grabbing lately is my boyfriends yellow DC hoodie, but I do plan to get my own Element or DC hoodie soon so I can stop stealing his. As well as that I also tend to put my Evanescence hoodie on, it cost enough so I need to ensure to wear it! xD
- Skateboard shoes
These are pretty much what I live in during the hot days as my Dr Martens are just too warm and the same can be said about my Chelsea boots too. I even wear a pair of black Vans for work! I wear my Vans slip on shoes, or my newer DC skate shoes during the warm days. They’re greats shoes that can just be slipped on and off whenever.
Now here are some pictures of some inspiration!
So I hope you enjoyed this fashion post! I’ll be going for some slight clothing shopping before I go to Bristol and I’m sure that shopping trip will result in either a haul post or plenty of what I wore posts after Bristol! 😀
I hope everyone’s week has gone off to a good start, I know mine has!
Until next time, take care all.
