Stripes you sir...

Hi there! The inspiration for this outfit came from a little competition currently running on one of my fave fashion sites WIWT.  It is full of lovely current, honest outfits. Some that have been snapped in the famous 'mirror shot' style (loved and hated in equal amounts!) and lots of others shot by out and out posers AKA me! The competition is running over the next week, today you have to upload a pic of yourself working the stripes trend and over the next 6 days the trend changes! Make sure you head over to the site so you can have a chance to enter! Mirror shots are welcomed! 

The competition is run by F&F @ Tesco and the daily winners will receive a £75 gift voucher to spend at F&F plus everyone is entered into a grand prize draw where three people will be selected to win £500 each! Holiday clothes sorted! Enjoy!

Shorts // Primark // £4.00
Vest // H&M // £1.99
Sleeveless blazer // Divided Black @ H&M // £24.99
Necklace // H&M // Gift
Shoes // New Look // £7.00 

I have practically created an outfit for £5.99.  I didn't even realise when I put these together they were both so cheap! I love a cheap outfit! Especially one that you can wear during the day and at night.  I can totally imagine rocking these shorts sans tights with a pair of gladiator sandals.  This vest is BRIGHT yellow and I mean briiiiiight.  It doesn't show up to well here but trust me, it is! Such a great colour! 

The shorts are silky, sporty style with a drawstring.  They have billions of colours and styles too all at only £4.00 each.  Ah Primark I do love you.  Plus what do you think of my hair? I decided to channel my inner child and go for some cute buns, a definite Summer hairstyle for me!

Will you be entering the WIWT competition? Bit of fun and with the chance to win £75? Go on, do it! 


If you are feeling kind and have a spare few seconds I would love you wholeheartedly if you could nominate me in the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2013! In the Best New Fashion Blog category, if you think I am worthy of course! Or you can nominate me for Best Newcomer in association with Next right here and be in with a chance of winning yourself a £500 shopping spree!! You can nominate absolutely any blog you like here!
