Summer sumer summer time...

Summer holiday season is upon us! Although for most of us in England it probably doesn't feel that way what with the gloomy weather! But if like me, you're jetting away some where hot then you will probably of done at least some of your holiday shopping. I however, have not even started and to be honest I have hardly any money. It's quite worrying really, considering I go in 27 days and only have one pay day left before I go. Eeeeeek, I think I'll be relying on my student overdraft for most of my spending money but hey I may as well take advantage of it while I still have an interest free overdraft!
So as you may of gathered, I will be doing most of my shopping on a budget. I'm going to try to use clothes that I already have and just update my wardrobe with some fresh pieces and accessories, so if you have any cheap-ish clothing websites you'd reccommend I'd really appreciate it!

Anyway, this is what I have on my (sort of) budget shopping list so far:

Drawstring Skirt £18 Topshop

White Embroidered Hem Shorts £18 River Island

LOVE Spring Flower Print Chiffon Cross Back Dress £38

Top in Crochet with Dipped Back £22 Asos

Midnight Grace Preppy Stripe Bikini Top £28 Figleaves

Geo Print Cross Back Dress £20 Miss Selfridge

That is all I have so far, it's a work in progress. Although progress needs to happen sharpish so tomorrow I'm hitting Manchester!

Rule Britannia

So, it was the Queen's Diamond Jubilee at the weekend and what a weekend it was! Although my weekend consisted of working, I hot-footed over to Manchester straight after work on Sunday to celebrate mine and my best friends 21st birthday (and Queen Lizzie's Jubilee obviously!). I bought a new dress for the occasion from Topshop which I love! It's quite a gem (geddit? cos it's the Diamond Jubilee!) as I found it in the Buy Now or Regret Later section in the tiny Topshop in my local town so it's fair to say I'm pretty chuffed with it!

It reminds me of Mary Katrantzou and Erdem, and for £60 I think it's a bit of a bargain! On Monday I was pretty hungover but waved my friends off and headed to Dot To Dot Festival. Unfortunately I didn't get chance to watch that many bands, shamefully due to my hungover state, but managed to catch Lucy Rose performing. She first appeared on my radar when I went to see Bombay Bicycle Club last year where she performed with them and I just think she has such a stunningly beautiful voice, I'd recommend you to go and listen to some of her songs! She also came across as being really sweet and humble and was touched when she saw someone in the audience wearing one of her T-shirts. I finished off the night with a yummy tea at Felicini's. And Tuesday was spent recovering!

What did you get up?
