Don't stop imagining

Happy Monday cherubs! These photos were taken last week when it was beautifully sunny and it seemed like the whole of Sheffield was taking advantage of the gorgeous weather. Seriously, I don't think a patch of grass was left unattended! It's a pity the same couldn't be said for this weekend which was my birthday celebrations (more on that later in the week) but all the same I have had the BEST few days. Thankyou for all of the well-wishes on twitter and facey-b, and if you're not a fan of the Jazzpad facebook page you might wanna be to hear about a fab giveaway I'm holding later in the week! Yes that's right, hints don't come much bigger than that.

Oh yeah and I've had a fringe chopped! You like?

Tortoiseshell sunglasses - Primark
Lace t-shirt - H&M
Pleated paisley maxi skirt - Liberty via eBay
Blue granny sandals - eBay
Skinny belt - River Island

This is definitely the sort of uniform I'll be wearing in the warmer weather. I've never been hugely confident with my legs, which is why I'll always be seen or snapped wearing pretty opaque or patterned tights. And yet, with these swishy skirts they're long enough for me to feel comfortable with but cool enough to enjoy the sunshine in! And I have SUCH a thing for paisley at the moment. 

What is your summer wardrobe? xox
