Somehow we’ve ended up with an actual summer here in the UK, so it’s the perfect opportunity for me to get as much use as possible out of the summery pieces in my wardrobe. This playsuit from Missguided is super pretty, but also really comfortable as it is loose fitting and so great for hot weather. I love the coral colour, which would look great on someone with a tan, but I couldn’t resist it anyway and it matches my Illamasqua ‘Scandal’ lipstick perfectly. I’ll definitely be getting more wears out of this playsuit over the heatwave and my holiday to California in a few weeks (eek!).
The summery weather is back in Manchester, hopefully for more than 3 days this time! Yesterday I took a revision break to go out for tea for my mum’s birthday and wore my fab new lace textured trousers from Lashes of London. As you can see in the photo of my nails (Models Own in ‘Bubblegum’), the trousers are a pale but bright yellowy green shade with a layer of white lace allover, making the fluro colour more subtle and wearable. I kept the rest of my outfit pale and summery with a white t-shirt with a jewelled neckline (a bargain £12 from Primark – I own this in other colours too!) and white pointed BooHoo flats. I threw on my old Primark jersey ‘boyfriend’ blazer on top, however it is years old and I’m afraid it has had it’s time and has lost its shape completely!
If you’re thinking of investing in the Lashes Lima Fluro Jacqaurd Trousers, I’d recommend buying your usual size. As you can see on me, they’re quite long (I’m 5’6″) and so shorter ladies might need to turn this up unless you’re wearing them with heels, but they won’t come up too short on taller girls.

Orange was one of the biggest colour trends on the SS13 catwalks, with designers like Helmut Lang, J Mendel and Carolina Herrera sending models out in head-to-toe tangerine, and it’s a colour I’m really loving at the moment! Although I’m not seeing many other signs of summer here in Manchester, the highstreet is full of summery shades, from burnt orange to carrot to apricot and everything in between Below are a few of my favourite picks from Topshop:
