stars and stripes

 
top: dorothy perkins
shorts: topshop
ring: topshop

Wahhhh hello orange! I applied some fake tan last night before bed and I look very.. shall we say Essex today? At least I fit in with my surroundings! I don't usually take photos in this light anyway so that could also be a contributing factor. Oh I don't know!

Everything I'm wearing, apart from the ring, is old I'm afraid. I got the shorts last summer and the top over 2 years ago! Since taking these photos I've put black tights on and am also donning my trusty Topshop blazer too! Just got a call from the lover asking if he could take me to the Harvester tonight so I'm glad I was already opting for comfort anyway. Little does he know I already had a small dinner! I think I'll probably just go for the salad cart and maybe a dessert!

Also I'm not sure if you've noticed, but I cut my hair. Yes I did it myself, and no I didn't see the point in going to a salon just to get the ends trimmed as they would probably have just done exactly what they wanted and cut it into a bob or something. It's just a really awkward length now and because it's so thick I'm thinking I need layers. And now I'll probably want to dabble with the world of hair extensions too! I have no idea where to start though. Advice/suggestions this way if you please! At least my hair feels heaps better now. No more tangles (hopefully)!

  1. I like your hair like this, maybe a few layers would make it choppy which would be nice. I love this outfit too, whether it be old, it looks lovely :)

  3. I had a feeling when i saw the title of this post it was going to be referring to these shorts. I AM SO JEALOUS, they look absolutely amazing on you, i prefer these ones to the newer ones Topshop have brought out! Your hair looks nice, whenever i get my hair done i always feel heaps better about myself!
    Can't advise you on the hair extension shizz, but if you find anything good out about it, let me know, I NEED THEM! xxxx

  5. I am on the same boat with my hair. I hate it when it gets thick at the bottom and you can't seem to just wear it in a pony tail.. lame! I think Layers would be a good option though.

    I like this outfit. Comfort is good haha! Hope you had an amazing time with your boy.

  12. I don't think the length of your hair is awkward at all! It's very cute. I love this outfit. You don't look orange, either, darling. It's nice to have a glow!

  16. Hah I love your shorts! Those would be perfect to wear on the Forth of July (in a non tacky way of course!!)

    I think your hair still looks adorable!

  17. I really love this look on you because it looks so low-key and comfy. Sometimes it can be hard to relate to fashion bloggers because they always seem to be so dressed up and glamorous...so I'm happy to see this look! You look beautiful :)

    Haha it's so funny how these America flag shorts are blowing up over in the UK! I'm from the USA and I don't think its a pair of shorts we would ever consider buying! ...maybe if they had a UK flag we would ;)

    Great photos! Have fun this weekend!

  18. i just trimmed my own hair too, it feels so much better although it might not look the best xD

    i've also been looking through loads of youtube layering tutorials. you could try having a look at some of these because they're quite easy and seem to work really well :)

  20. Love the shorts! I tried them on a while ago but they just didn't look right on me :(

    I've got some Rapunzel Rapunzel hair extensions and they're really nice, but it seems like most of the ones out there atm are good!

    I love them for being able to change my hair so much (I get bored easily haa)

  29. I love this outfit! It's so summery!
    Loving that another fashion blogger shops in Dorothy Perkins, I swear I never see any DP stuff on any other blogs!
    I have Foxy Locks extensions and they're lovely. Really thick and natural looking, and they take hair dye really well if you need to tweak the colour slightly.

  36. Your hair looks amazing for a self-cut! I'm too scared to cut my own, I have a thick fringe so if I mess that up then there's no hiding it.
