If you, like me, are a Londoner, you would have been shocked by the unexpected rain a few days ago (and probably worried that the sun would leave us!)
But despite the temporary glitch, all is well.
I still walk to school each morning, blissful lin the sun.
And walk back again each afternoon, backpack nicely stuch to my back with sweat, feet swollen beyond recognition and I must admit, I've pretty much given up on shoes.
But what does this all entail, my stories of sports days and summer exams and swimming pools and home grown strawberries (:D)
It brings CLOTHES!!!
Now, I'm miles behind. By now, all of you will have your stock of bikinis, maxidresses, shorts and sandal boots.
But anyways, I think you are entitled to have my favourites shoved down your throats, trend setting or not!
Tania's Guide to (a rather non) High Street Summer 2010
Republic - £26.99
I am glad to say, the maxidress will be everywhere. Sling it over a swimming costume, pair it with some snazzy clogs, wear it to the races, what ever you choose, these things are great! (And as long as they aren't jersey, they can cover up those lumps and bumps oh so nicely!)
If you have good eyes you can tell where these come from
You might say it's a bit early for double denim. You might say it's a bit late. Either way, denim is not the best summer material - it's thick, it doesn't breath excellently, and it stays wet for hours. But either way, double denim is still good for me. You could take cues from Stella McCartney and her front buttoned denim skirts, or buy a playsuit or dungarees (though I have done NONE of those things)
Both swimsuits are by Melissa Odabash
In swimsuits recently I've seen a huge amount of cutouts, and bright colours. Impracticle sequins appear to be popular on these too...
If you really can't tell, this is Chanel.
For a nice high street version, Topshop has some rather nice ones :P
You've seen them all over the catwalks, bt I have yet to see a person wearing them well (exculding online). I don't quite see why, seeing as they are rather amazing. On top of that, CHANEL TATTOOS!!!
Right, I'm going to have to cut this blog short. So I can't go on to talk about shorts, tops, makeup, hair, more shoes, resort (which I have actually BARELY seen) and lots more :( I think this is partially because I only started this blog in February, at which point the A/W shows were on... so I never really followed the S/S properly (*ashamed face*)
But, to end
I went shopping. I bought two dresses (one of which I wore to own clothes day today, oblivious of Quite How Seethrough It Was) and some shoes. I finally have some gladiators :) I wore them and they were ever so startlingly comfortable!
Oh oh oh! How could I forget?! For the next two weeks I'm going to the Fashion Capital head office for work experience. I'll be with a friend, and I'm hoping for a good time! Smart casual dress code, maybe I can do something with it...
