When the sun comes out in the UK, the clothes come off for us Brits and we get our pasty white bits out on show for everyone to see. I can occasionally be one of these people, depends how hot it is and what I’m doing. But because of all this lovely weather I’ve bought a few new crop tops and my cute skirts and shorts out of my wardrobe to start wearing out and I thought I’d show my few outfit ideas with you guys.
I intend to wear these over the weekend (when this post will be live!) but you watch, the weather will be crappy and raining… Just you see!
Play suit by Red Herring from Debenhams. I can’t remember the price, I bought this back in 2010/2011.
I’ve had this play suit a while and it’s something I always bring out in the summer and for nights out as it’s really summery and cute with its red background and white and navy floral print. It’s not super thin but thin enough to wear during the summer time with a pair of tights and a cute denim jacket/shirt. It came with an awesome red belt which really makes your waist look smaller than it is, awesome for someone with bigger love handles than most girls my size. The straps on this dress have cute little heart-shaped buttons too, which just make this even cuter than need be. This play suit just reminds me of a dress I had when I was a little girl and thus makes me smile and think of old memories. Great worn with a cute pair of flats too, only dainty shoes allowed.
Coca-Cola crop top from Primark £6.00.
American Flag hot pant denim shorts from Topshop can’t remember the price as I bought them in 2011/2012.
Okay I realise how hipster and 90’s this outfit looks but you know what? I don’t care! I’ve loved this look before the term hipster was even created for anyone who wore things like this so shh! I bought this crop top from Primark on Wednesday as I’ve wanted a Coca-Cola t-shirt for quite a while now and as we’ve had such great weather recently I didn’t think it would hurt to pick this up for £6.00. This will look great during the daytime whether I’m out shopping, in the countryside, at the park, etc. As long as there is sunshine, this look will look awesome! With some creepers for both day and evening and especially tights for evening this outfit will be great, especially for holidays!
Long sleeved mint crop top from Primark £4.00.
Pug crop top from Primark £5.00
Cream and black spot skater skirt from Primark £9.00.
Wow lot’s of pieces from Primark! Probably because I’m pretty skint right now and I’m only after some summer essentials, I usually pay heavy prices for autumn and winter items due to liking these seasons more than spring and summer.
With the first outfit (mint crop top and skirt) I bought them together as I think cream and mint look really nice together, especially in spring. I was wanting to find a nice mint jumper to wear with this skirt but with no luck, the crop top did a pretty good job. This is the sort of thing you could wear on a dinner date with some patterned tights and a cute pair of flats or low heels and a light denim jacket to keep you warm. Definitely something I would wear on holiday on the beach, no tights or jacket required of course! I’m definitely going to wear this skirt at some point over the weekend.
For the second outfit it’s a little more grunge than cute and with that I would need to wear my creepers and some tights with it, probably plain and I’d wear this from day-to-night. This pug crop top is so cute isn’t it? I saw it on Zoella’s Primark haul video on her YouTube channel and thought it was super cute and would be nice to team up with denim shorts and jeans for summer, as well as winter on nights out. So for a fiver I thought, why not! I can team this up with so much, this skirt being one of them! I would wear my spiked pleather biker jacket and my creepers with this, maybe a denim shirt if the jacket was a bit too warm or heavy. I might wear this look on Sunday night for a gig I’m going to.
AND I know most girls feel too shy or embarrassed about wearing crop tops due to their tummy and trust me, I’m one of those girls. I do have a solution for those of you who do feel this way though. Make sure to get a skirt, shorts or jeans that are high-waisted because you can cover the part of your tummy you don’t feel too confident with and you’ll have your gorgeous waist to show off and your tummy will look as flat as you wish it to. The thing is with your tummy, it’s not meant to be flat, it’s meant to have a bit of a bump to it, where do you think all your organs go, eh?
I hope this post was a good read, I know I had a lot of fun picking out outfits to team together to show you guys, it’s also helped me decide on what I’m going to take with me to wear on Friday and Saturday whilst I’m at my partners and Sunday and Monday whilst he’s at mine.
I’ll be hopefully posting some what I wore posts about what I decided to wear today and Monday, so keep eyes peeled for those!
I just hope the weather stays nice, otherwise I’ll have my plan B outfits on standby!
What summer clothes have you been wearing this summer?
I hope my outfits inspired any girls out there who don’t have much crop top courage to have gained some, I’m not exactly skinny and I like to think I can pull them off (just!) so I’m pretty damn sure you girls can too!
Until next time, take care all and enjoy the weather while it’s here!
