Well hello my scrumptious darlings. I’m in a simply wonderful mood today and thought I’d spread this good feeling and do a cheeky blog post. Thank goodness the sunshine has come out and we can finally reorganise our wardrobes. Throwing them jumpers that we have endlessly be reusing and shoving them in the bottom draw to rediscover so many clothes we’d forgot we even had.
I had a wardrobe clear out last week (definitely not my idea *cough, Will, cough*) is it just me who finds it quite a painful process? I try to cling onto everything I can, because in the back of my mind I’m like ‘But what happens if this 3-sizes-too small dress comes in handy for a ‘who can wear the most unfitted’ fancy dress party? or ‘Aw no I can’t get rid of this I wore it for my 18th birthday, its got too many memories.’ No Alice. Its ridiculous. You’ve got to be ruthless.
Even with the amount of clothes I have building in my wardrobe I can never help looking, maybe buying some, especially when it comes to summer bits.
What I’m looooooving-
- Polka Dots
- Shift Dresses
- Light Pink Dresses
You really can’t go wrong with a pink number. I feel the colour is so flattering and appropriate for any summer occasion. I’ve recently bought the Boohoo Corduroy dress. What. A. Dream. It’s a little thick for 30 degree heat wave (I tried it and was sweating to the point where it could have been mistaken that I was in a brutal water fight with myself and lost) however its beautiful for when the weather is nice with the 3 quarter length arms and above the knee cut. It also comes in black and a maroon colour.
There are so many gorgeous polka dot style dresses around at the moment. I have the Motel Rocks black and white polka dot and can quite easily wear it casually or whack on some heels and you’ve got a completely different look. ASOS also does such a great range of different polka dot outfits, you’re never short of choice.
If you’re struggling for summer bargain this year because you’re having to save for a that summer holiday or feeling the strain of Uni life then I’ve found some bits that you might like.
The summer sales are always worth looking at online, especially the Zara/Pull & Bear/Bershka/Mango sale, I could spend hours scrolling through it. However I am not so keen on a shop sale, also known as a sale that’s in a shop. H-e-a-v-e-n-s. Its like Primark on a Saturday, no worse, its like going to Asda when its hot weather and the day before Father’s day. I’m honestly still trying to recover from that traumatic experience.
Queuing for nearly an hour to get to into Asda. Asda. Theres so many supermarkets nearby, but no, hundreds of us decide that’s the place we all want to cram into. But guys that wasn’t the worst of it, when I finally fought for a trolley I was welcomed by angry, slightly aggressive, food hunting vultures everywhere. I swear to god I nearly had to get nasty and slap one womans hand away when trying to get my spinach, greedy swine, get your own bag. And don’t even get me started when I went down the alcohol aisle. It’s like as soon as it goes over 18 degrees the whole nation needs a drink, I mean don’t get me wrong I’m including myself in that but these people were a different species of drinkers, they were what I like to call ‘the savage wineys’. I don’t know if any of you have come across them before, but they have their fuck off trolley and press it right against the aisle so you are unable to look at any of the wine. But on these busy days they are some how worse, more of them, somehow bigger trolleys? I have no problem with this, but then when 1. you try to get round/on top/ under their trolly, they don’t move, they stubbornly make no attempt to move themselves or their trolly. 2. You move their trolly, don’t do this kids. This is where the word savage comes into play. I left the shop forgetting half of my food shop, a little shaky and reassured that’s why you don’t go food shopping on a Saturday afternoon.
