Summer Fashion Haul // ASOS, Miss Selfridge & Topshop

A couple of months ago the english weather started to get a little warmer (by 'warmer' i mean above 15 degrees...) and it soon became apparent that my wardrobe was full of woolly jumpers, leggings and winter ready items. In a moment of mad panic i made a cuppa (priorities), made a hasty order on ASOS and was wearing summer ready items the next day. I spent an eye watering amount on ASOS but i did send a lot of it back, and was left with some great versatile pieces that will see me through summer. I also picked up a few bits from Topshop and Miss Selfridge. Miss Selfridge are seriously onto of their game at the moment, so definitely check them out if you're looking to top up your wardrobe.

A lot of the items i bought from ASOS were from the ASOS Collection, which i think is the best part of ASOS. Everything is very much on trend and affordable too.

Aswell as writing a blog post on my purchases i've also filmed a YouTube video on them too, so if you fancy watching me waffle on about fashion then here is the video. If you enjoyed it, please subscribe!

I don't think i have ever wrote a fashion haul on my blog before, so here we go! I hope you get some summer fashion inspiration from this post.

ASOS Top in Peach (link)

I love the style of boxy tops, so when i saw this on ASOS i decided i needed it. The peachy colour is really flattering and looks gorgeous with a tan. Its such a versatile piece which you can dress up or down, which is why i bought it for holiday and also for work.

ASOS Flightplan Sandals (link)

Buying sandals on the high street is more or less impossible for me as i have such teeny tiny feet (UK Size 2/3) and shops tend to only stock size 4 and higher. So, i regularly turn to ASOS for my shoe needs. These tan sandals are perfect for spring and summer, they are really comfy for walking around and look great too.

New Look via ASOS Boxy Tee (link)

New Look via ASOS Kimono (link)

I've been after a kimono for ages but i didn't want a flowery one so i found this black and white aztec printed one which looks great with a pair of denim shorts and a simple top for summer evenings. Kimonos are such a great piece to throw over the top of a simple outfit to add a little something extra.

ASOS Shorts with Scallop Hem (link)
I apologise for the rubbish photo - taking photos of black shorts is harder than it would seem...
Image and video hosting by TinyPic I practically lived in these shorts throughout the evenings of my holiday. They are black, so match any top i decided to wear. The unusual scalloped hem gives the shorts a much softer look and is more flattering for your legs too.

ASOS Stripe Bikini Top (link)

Everytime i go on holiday i buy a new bikini, not that i really need anymore! This time around i fancied a classic striped one. This bandeau one from ASOS fits really nicely and is a great price too. It also comes with shoulder straps but i took these off.

Miss Selfridge Blue Baroque Floral Print T Shirt (link)
Image and video hosting by TinyPic This was an item which i picked up last weekend. Its slightly more cropped than i tend to go for but it makes a nice change and the length is great for summer to wear with shorts or skirts. The colour is quite an unusual mix, a combination of lilac and light blue which isn't something that i tend to go for.

Topshop Raglan Stripe T Shirt (link)
Image and video hosting by TinyPic I'm always after casual daytime t-shirts, you know something that you can just throw on at the weekend with a pair of jeans. This topshop tee fits the bill perfectly, it fits really well and is a pinch at just £16!

Topshop Dress - This was in the sale and seems to have disappeared from the Topshop website...
Image and video hosting by TinyPic I found this in the Topshop sale and thought it would be perfect for work and just everyday wear. The fit and flare skirt part is really flattering too and whilst the blue colour isn't usually something that I'm drawn to, i think it makes a nice change.

H&M Peach Statement Necklace

I'm not usually one for wearing a lot of jewellery but i wanted something that i could wear with my boxy style tops. I saw this in H&M and thought that this would be great, its more simple than other statement necklaces that i've seen but it still adds that extra something to an otherwise simple ensemble.

So, that is all my summer items which i've bought recently. Perhaps i need to go on a bit of a spending ban now! Hope you are all having a good weekend, monday rolls around far too quick for my liking!!

P.s. What do you think of my new blog design? The wonderful Steph from Bonjour Belle Designs created it for me and i love it. If you are looking for a great, quick and affordable designer i'd highly recommend Steph - She's awesome!
