I thought I’d do an outfit of the day today, but I’m not going to show you me wearing it – that’s far too much for now! Sorry about the rubbish pictures – my camera is a bit temperamental.
I had a lovely day out at the zoo today with some of my family looking at the animals, and it was pretty warm, so I wore some tight cropped jeans with a tropical style swirly tunic. To finish the look, I put on my gladiator sandals, an antique sundial pendant and a new hip belt I purchased last week.
The cropped jeans are from good old M & S – when I spotted them, I thought they were just the perfect pair of summer jeans (I’d been searching for years) and they are!
I love the tropical print tunic. It's slightly off the shoulder and has an unusual neckline with straps of material fixed accross it, and has ruched sleeves just above the elbow. It may not be to everyone’s taste, but I think it’s a great summer top, and surprisingly cool. I imagined being on a hot beach somewhere glamorous wearing it (wishful thinking this year). I bought it from Next earlier on in the year.
The gladiator sandals are from Faith, just before it went into administration (they look brown, but they are actually black (excuse the cat hairs on them). The sundial pendant I’ve had for years – I bought it on holiday in France when I was a teenager. We were running a bit late, so I just had my hair down and forgot to put on any other jewellery.
The new hip belt is from Dorothy Perkins and cost £10. Have you been in Dotty P’s recently? They have some great clothes in there at the moment!
Anyway, here’s a gorilla eating a banana! xx
