Black in Summer

Black is quite a go to colour for me (in case that wasn't obvious!), it is very flattering and can easily be transitioned into the evening. I know that in summer, most people tend to shy away from it, but I still like to wear all black outfits, just a looser, shorter version. Adding pops of colour in my accessories is a great way to bring in that summer vibe.

Yesterday I was out with friends for lunch and then we studied outside, which was so nice, and I think I definitely got some colour. As you can tell, I really need a tan! I have never really gotten into self-tanning, mainly because I'm terrified of orange hands and streaky lines. However, I don't know when I will have time to actually be able to lie in the sun and properly try to tan. That is the only thing about black, I think it looks so much better when you have some colour.

I hope you are all having a great week. I'm back to studying inside now,  especially as my exam date gets closer.

Back with another outfit post. You may remember me getting this top last summer (seen here) and it is still one of my favourites. I didn't wear it really during winter, but I will definitely be looking for new ways to keep styling it, because it's such a beautifully cut and flattering piece.

This morning I am heading over to my friends house to continue revision. It's been getting super hot lately, but luckily so far my apartment hasn't turned into an oven. I'm also excited to start looking at flights for the summer, since I have two visits planned.

Are you going anywhere nice this summer?

This is such a classy combination, which can be worn day or night, which I love. I like that the top is simple, but has that interesting feel with the side slits, while the rest is covered. I'm also all about the cuff bracelets and necklaces. The choker trend isn't quite my style, but this necklace is, so it's all about adapting the trends to fit you. I have loved neutrals long before they became 'in fashion'. However, the fact that they are in at the moment, means staying away from shops has become a must, if I want to actually eat that month. There are so many gorgeous pieces, and I wish I could own everything in this post, but for now I will settle on this wooden clutch.

This weekend I learned a bit about using photoshop, and guys it's so complicated! The key is to learn one new thing to do every now and again when I feel inspired, otherwise it would just be too overwhelming. Also yesterday I went into town for lunch, and it's so warm! Summer has totally happened while I have been sitting on my sofa studying (which btw is still very much happening). I hope you all have a great week with great weather!
