Although yesterday marked the first official day of summer, I just don't know where to begin with this weather we've been having recently, it's shocking, we're in June! The last week has been abysmal, here's hoping for warmer weather now that it's officially summer. I've been trying to remain optimistic, at least with my outfits, by picking out skirts and shorts paired with some ankle boots so I'm ready for the day ahead come rain or shine. I recently got this dress from AX Paris which I'm kind of obsessed with, it's got some gorgeous detailing on the sleeves and the neck which is so pretty - very Victorian.
You know me, I always try to toughen up a girly outfit by adding a leather jacket and some ankle boots so that's exactly what I did. This River Island jacket is so perfect when you're wearing a sleeveless top as it fits perfectly thanks to the elasticated sleeves (which at first I wasn't too keen on but now it's a feature I really love). These black sock boots are probably my favourite to wear when I'm bare legged as they don't leave any gaps between them and my legs, and they just look way more expensive than they are! The final touch is my beloved bucket bag, I'm not sure why I love this style bag so much, I think it's because I can throw in just about anything and I'll be good to go. Believe it or not, I considered getting rid of this black one as I have a new cream one for spring/summer but I missed it too much and had to keep it, even if it is looking worse for wear.
