beach house


top - TK Maxx
shorts - DIY

Bonjour, hello. From Le Francais I have returned. Instead of boring you with mundane details I shall acknowledge the important points:
accommodation = lovely
weather = lovelier
food = loveliest

Can't believe I only have about five days of summer remaining. I was of course sensible enough to do all my work at the beginning of the holidays so I didn't have to do it all last minute. Of course.

Before spamming you with my amateur photography skills, I'd like to mention the lovely Scarlett from optimistic but never quite elegant. I won a giveaway of hers a while back, and she was kind enough to send me these (customised) shorts which I can't wait to wear!



Now, onto the holiday snaps.

electric guest


practically everything - Primark




top - Primark
shorts - Primark
hoodie - Disneyland

Our household is currently chaotic with clothes on just about every surface due to us holidaying on Monday. As my Mother also managed to persuade my Father of  a quick trip to Disney, I thought it appropriate to pick up this Mickey t-shirt in Primark reduced to £3 :) I also found this hat in the boys sale section for £2 which I'm skeptical about but for £2 I took the risk ;)
A level results came out on Thursday and I was pleasantly surprised with my grades and for those of you also doing A levels, I hope yours went well too! Despite the fact most of my friends are headed to university, I'm glad I am staying the extra year to get more of a grip on what I actually want to do with my life.
At least that's what I'm telling myself ;)

To finish, some inspiration c/o weheartit and tumblr:

I tried to do handstands for you



top - Primark
shorts - DIY H&M
bag - TK Maxx

Despite the warmer temperatures gracing our British shores, this outfit is reserved for my holidays (I have a thing about exposing my legs - probably their lack of tan.) I picked up this shirt on my pre-France-shopping-trip for a wonderful £5 which I love the colour of. I also found my ex-favourite pair of jeans that I cut a massive hole in the knee of tripping over something, which I hacked into a pair of shorts and was surprised that they didn't look too terrible.

Currently watching 'this morning'  and everyone seems to be talking about the closing ceremony of last night. Personally, I was pleased to see Elbow, Muse and felt slightly nostalgic with the Spice Girls Reunion. Any thoughts and opinions I would love to hear so do leave a comment!

I have also been nominated for a Liebster award once again by the lovely Eleanor, Isobel and Emma so a big thank you to them, I highly recommend a visit to their blogs!

Here are a few of my favourite lookbook looks of recent:

king of the beach



top - Primark
jeans - Primark
bag - TK Maxx
flip flops - free

Apologies for the recent lack of posts, I have been in Le Francais once more and yet again had an excellent time :)
Beforehand, I managed to squeeze in a quick shopping trip where I picked up a few items including the above top and bag. I have also found a new love for flip flops. I was previously not a fan, but the lovely people who I stayed with seem to live in them, so it felt rude not to do the same.
 Anyway, I shall post some pictures below and try not to get too carried away :









(Far too embarrassing to take a picture where you are actually able to see us)


 
(The firework display on the final evening which is set over a lake, all in all, pretty spectacular.)

Finally, some pretty pictures from tumblr/weheartit:






















look it's a lookbook look
