The Corset

Finally, bare legged weather is on the horizon. The past few weeks we have welcomed the sun and hot temperatures with open arms, although as I type this it is currently a mere 13 degrees and cloudy outside my window. Nevertheless, I am a firm believer that the weather affects your mood, and being around my friends and family when the sun is out has such a great impact on me and seriously boosts my happiness, even if I am spending the day in the library.

Summer is just around the corner, and I can't wait to be sat in a pub drinking prosecco with my friends (that is how I intend to spend every day of my summer). Although I'm a lover of the winter months, festivities and autumn/winter fashion, I can't contain my excitement for beer gardens, festivals and holidays. I'm not one for going crazy when it comes to summer clothes as I'm fully aware, our summers are short lived here in England. I tend to just purchase a few staple items that I know I'll get my wear out of.

This dress is a perfect way to transition into the warmer weather. Simple + versatile = right up my street. Throughout winter I've been wearing jumper and t-shirt dresses with over the knee boots, and now I'm beginning to loose the boots and tights and create a more spring look with these kinds of dresses. 

Whats not to like about a plain white t-shirt dress? Perfect for layering or even throwing over a bikini on holiday. Incorporating the corset trend into my wardrobe is not something I've felt overly confident about, however, this subtle belt compliments the simplicity of the outfit perfectly.

Recently I've become a bit of a shoe enthusiast. I used to always be a handbag girl but in the last few weeks I've been buying shoes left, right and centre. I think the reason for this is that I've realised I can't live in black boots all year round, and so have had to branch out and purchase some open toe shoes. These sock boot style heels are everywhere at the moment, and I wasn't over enthusiastic about this style of shoe at first. However, I found this pair in the Boohoo sale for a steal, so how could I resist? These have actually become my 'go-to' shoes at the moment, perfect for casual wear with jeans and a shirt or dressed up with a jumper dress for the evening.
