blue skies and sunshine

Finally, the weather has cheered up! Opening the curtains to a lovely, bright day had me almost weeping with relief. Ok, that's a slight exaggeration, but it was pretty awesome to see some sunshine and not have to worry about whether I was wearing enough layers that I wouldn't freeze! Everyone at Uni today seemed to be in a better mood due to the nice weather (although someone took it rather too far and wore denim shorts sans tights - there's always one Brit who gets a little too overexcited at the first hint of sunshine!) and I was pleased to be able to wear my new silk paperbag shorts, which I have been dying to try out for at least three weeks!

Anyway, the lovely weather inspired me to create a few outfits that I would like to wear in the summer - I know, I know, another Polyvore post, sorry! Here we go:

I can't wait to be able to go outside without a coat! It feels like this winter has lasted much longer than usual, so spring is most definitely welcome. I love the accessories I chose to go with these outfits, particularly the bird necklace and the floppy hat - not forgetting the gorgeous Miu Miu clogs! When I first heard that clogs were to be a trend this Spring/Summer, I was incredulous to say the least, but they really have grown on me.

Anyway, here's my outfit post for the day - it doesn't look particularly sunny, but it was!

These wedges are so comfortable - you get the height of a heel but without the pain! Good stuff. Anyway, I am off to bed as I'm up bright an early in the morning, so bye for now!

Blazer: Topshop, T-shirt: Topshop, Shorts: Warehouse, Wedges: ASOS


  1. No apologies for the Polyvore (that site is sooo addictive), it's great to see!
    I'm with you, I was a little bit shocked when clogs became fashionable, but they've really grown on me. Yet to try on a pair, but I can't wait to.
    p.s. summer has just ended here in Australia, and I already miss it! Enjoy the warmth for me! ;)

  2. omg loving your outfit and those wedges!

    To answer your question about my camera, I shoot with a Nikon D700 and use a 50mm when I shoot self portraits and make friends use the 70-200 when they photograph me! :)
