Seeing as it's the Summer holidays now, and I'm not forced to wear school uniform all day, I thought I'd do an outfits of the week. I did have a summery start to the week but it did go rather chilly by the end.

The Reason Behind the Emptiness of my Bank Account

Recently, I realised how little summer clothes I have (or I may have used that as an excuse to buy a few clothing items which may have lead to a lot less money in my bank account). Anyway, here are the my recent clothing purchases..

Patterned Shorts
I recently stocked up my patterned shorts as I love patterned shorts. I love how easy they are to pair with other things and how I can add tights to wear them all year round.

Light Blue Shorts with Butterflies - Primark (Pyjama Shorts)
Purple Patterned Shorts - Matalan
Dark Blue with White Dots - Primark
Floral Skort - H&M
Black and White Shorts - Primark

I'm not a big swimmer, but I thought that I should get some new swimsuits to wear on holiday and to the beach if the weather decides to warm up.

Swimsuit - Primark (It's soo pretty!)
Bikini - Gilly Hicks

I may have bought 2 navy dresses.. but they're really pretty.

Maxi Dress - New Look (only £6 in the sale)
Short Dress - Primark

Lastly, I bought a bralette and sunglasses. I may do a how to style bralettes post if you guys are interested.

Bralette - Misguided
Sunglasses - Primark

Thanks for having a look at this post, a lot of these items will be featuring in a post tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled. 

Seeing as I'm making a come-back, what type of posts would you like to see on here?

What I've Been Up To

It's been almost two weeks since my last post and I feel like I am constantly writing posts apologizing for a lack of posts. Instead, I thought I would do a sort of what I have been up to post, showing my reasons for the lack of posts, whilst making a little less boring (hopefully!).

Work Experience
The week before last I went to work experience. If you're unfamiliar with this, the clue's in the name. I went to a design studio to get the experience of the work place and learn some new things. That week, I hoped to post daily but that lasted Monday and Tuesday. I was always really tired when returning home and either went straight to sleep or just netflixed until I fell asleep, whoops.

A Real Summer
I live in the UK, so basically Summer sort of takes short trips here, normally for a few days and then disappeares for a few weeks, and then returns. I sucks but thats the UK for you. Last week, Summer decided to take a bus ride into town and give us very hot weather. Probably normal weather for foriegners, but us British like to exaggerate. This meant that I did go outside of my room and spent less time writing.

A New Room
I am not going to go into this very much, as I hope to do a whole post on it once it's finished, but I'm refurnishing my room. This doesn't only mean taking up time, but it also means my room is a mess and I feel like I can't write in a messy place.

Exams Arn't Quite Over
Yes, I finished my written exams but last week I did my Welsh aural exam which took up its time and also I have ongoing controlled assessments which is a joy..

With all of this, I have also had a bit of a lack of inspiration but soon I hope to put up some more Summer posts. When I get writers block like this, I just need to force myself to sit down and write which I plan to do very soon.

So there we have a list of things I have been doing lately, what about you, what have you been up to lately?

A new proper post is coming soon so sit tight.
