A Slow Start To Summer

A Slow Start To Summer

Black denim jacket, black skinny jeans boots and bag

Hello summer, hello…winter boots!? Okay so summer is finally here, it’s official but unfortunately the weather here in the UK still has quite a bit of catching up to do. I didn’t quite expect to be pulling out a pair of my black winter boots in the middle of June but a pro to the weather situation is that it’s buying me a little more time whilst I figure out exactly which summer pieces I’d like to add to my wardrobe.

Since downsizing my wardrobe quite considerably over these past few months, I’m finding it hard to now let new pieces in. I feel like I’ve tried on so many clothes and made so many summer orders, all of which haven’t been right or I have sent back, as I’m finding it hard to buy or keep things unless I absolutely love them. I’m guessing this can only be a good thing but at the same time I’m finding it harder than I had expected to transition my wardrobe for summer…In the mean time though I’ll continue to mix and match my current pieces, whilst still on the hunt for a few of those all important summer essential, because when the sun does finally decide to show its face, I plan to be ready!

    I know how you feel, this rain threw me off and boots have come back! And I think that’s a good thing, build yourself an absolute capsule wardrobe πŸ˜‰

      Yes, I actually think that’s sort of accidentally happened and I guess it’s good to get plenty of wear out of certain items. πŸ˜€

    I agree with you, this weather still has a lot of catching up to do, the feeling of going off on holiday to a sunny country and then coming back to rainchester (Manchester) to find it raining heavily.

    BTW love how you styled this piece and your hair is everything, absolutely love it.

      Thank you…Oh I know, that is the worst, stepping off the plane in a summer dress to find it’s freezing here. πŸ™

    I’m much more comfortable with winter fashion and how those kinds of clothes look on me so when it comes to revamping my wardrobe for summer I often have the same problem. I think it makes it harder when I shop as well because I always have a really specific idea of what I want in mind so then if I don’t find that, I don’t feel satisfied!

    If anything I think it’s better to be too picky rather than too… loose if that’s the proper word to use lol. I loove this outfit! The scarf makes the look in my opinion πŸ™‚
