As per usual - the first glint of sunlight peeps through the clouds in early March and already I'm planning my summer outfits. After perusing through runway shows, magazines and so many blogs etc., I've finally got the jist of summer 2011. I thought I would share with you some of my favourite items and looks for this coming summer.
In times of great student poverty, I thought I was going to have to swear off shopping until June, at least! Luckily, a forgotten Topshop gift card came to my aid. This was a golden opportunity. With only £30 to spend, I had to choose wisely. Thankfully, I marched in with a good idea of what I wanted: a wide-brimmed, floppy straw hat. And I found one.
Hats are a great way of adding a whole new dimension to an outfit - and I really love the one I bought. A wide, round, floppy brim gives a perfect frame for your face, and such an air of effortless style!
I've complied some inspiring looks below to give you an idea of how I want to be wearing mine:
