I've recently got back from an absolutely amazing trip to Barcelona and I seriously fell in love with this beautiful city. I've always wanted to visit there and finally I did and it didn't disappoint. If I had it my way I'd happily go back there this very minute. The next few posts will be outfit posts from this holiday starting with this one including this amazing scallop edged dress from Missguided. I seriously love this dress, it's so simple with the colours and design but the scallop details and open back make it something a little bit special. The fit is perfect and the quality is lovely and thick so this will transition into my A/W wardrobe perfectly. To give a little colour to a pretty colourless outfit, I wore my new FAVE lipstick which is, MAC's 'Lady Danger' which I have been eyeing up forever but have never actually purchased but oh my gosh, I have been wearing this so much. It's the most beautiful Orange toned Red and I love me a Red lipstick. Thank god for duty free!

(Playsuit: Primark/Sliders: Office/Clutch: Zara/Kimono: New Look)

I picked up this playsuit from Primark back at the start of Spring along with a Mint version also and seriously love them. They fit me PERFECTLY and they are not overly short which I find happens a lot with playsuits on me (long leg problems). The material of this playsuit feels amazing; it's so nice and thick which makes me think it's a lot more expensive than what it was. 
I recently also went on a bit of a crazy spending splurge on three pairs of sliders/Birkenstock style sandals. When these style of sandals first came out I absolutely hated them and thought they were so ugly. But having interned for the last couple of months, a lot of the girls were wearing these and I actually grew to love them. I have realised these are the most comfortable shoes EVER and I actually do think they look pretty good, although I know a lot of people still think they are gross. Me on the other hand, I love an 'ugly' shoe. I love these Office ones particularly as they make a simple outfit and they are almost like an accessory or piece of jewellery in themselves. I love the metallic for Summer too.

(Floral Playsuit: Missi Clothing*/Bag: Primark/Sandals: Primark/Choker: Ebay/Sunglasses: Topshop)

So Summer has decided to play hide and seek in England these last few days but I decided to forget that and justify that if I can't get my legs out in August then when can I?! This beautiful playsuit is a little newbie to my wardrobe from the lovely people at, Missi Clothing who are a manufacturer and wholesaler company in Britain. When I saw this on the website I just knew it was very me. I love that the colours of this floral playsuit are bright yet can easily be transitioned into Autumn and Winter with layering. 
These new sunglasses are from Topshop, I love the subtle cat-eye on these. I decided to keep it clean with black and silver accessories. I've been on the search for a perfect choker and it's actually a lot harder than it would seem even with them appearing everywhere now. I purchased this feather one from Ebay for a miniscule £2. I ended up cutting it down to size and tying it myself at the back as it was way too big for my little neck haha. Anybody else know any stores/online websites that have any lovely chokers for a good price?

(Lace Crop Top: Topshop/Skirt: New Look/Clutch: Zara/Heels: Missguided)

I bought this crop top so long ago but have been waiting to wear it in a good enough outfit to take blog photos for (anyone else do this?! Haha). I've seen so many 'dupes' of this crop top but in my opinion, none look as nice as the original Topshop version.This fits me really well and I love the thin straps which give it a classy and elegant look. To keep with the outfit but keep everything simple and minimalistic, I paired the top with this beautiful Jacquard New Look skirt. I've been searching for a perfect White skirt for ages, and it took me longer than expected to find this little gem. When it comes to bags, I always turn to Zara and so this clutch came inside another bag which I bought both for £40, kind of a bargain if I do say so myself!
