I'm going to put my hands up and admit that I'm an online boutique shopaholic. Despite being on the tightest student budget you could imagine, I'm forever lurking on online shops, making the odd sneaky purchase here and there! Aside from my usual favourite haunts (i.e. Topshop, H&M, Zara, Miss Selfridge, Dixi and countless jewellery stores!), one of my current favourites is

Although I'm not a huge vintage expert, I've always admired bloggers like Ella, Kavita and Bekah from afar, who seem to find the best bargains around. What I love the most about Yayer is that for the less thrift-savvy like myself, Yayer is the perfect place to buy both vintage and brand new pieces. Nothing is overstyled, and there is a perfect collection of both vintage and new garments. Unlike many "boutiques" who overcrowd their shops with rather questionable pieces, Yayer sell only the best of the best.

Get the look! 1, 2, 3, 4.

If I were to have a no-limits spending spree at Yayer, I'd definitely pick the Mocha Floral Playsuit. The muted heather-purple-grey tones are perfect to be paired with a bright cardigan, floppy hat and sandals for the British summer. It could also be worn with low-denier, sheer black tights and some sky-high platform heels or block wedges with some gold toned jewellery for a night out - you all know how big I am on restyling items at the moment!

Get the look! 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

I'm sure you'll all sick of me and my obsession for sheer, collared shirts at the moment. I just love how whimsical and flattering sheer garments can be! This Sidewalker Sheer Dress is so perfect in my eyes, I'm seriously having to resist clicking that 'Buy' button as I hide behind my online persona! I'd definitely wear a little slip underneath this, and pop a pair of those primary-school-esque lace ankle socks and brogues on! I'd also knot a tan belt round the waist to break up the long-ness of this piece!

Get the look! 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

Something a lot of my friends, and readers actually, pick up on is the lack of colour in my wardrobe! I always seem to opt for neutral colours, a LOT of black and the same few colours over and over again. I'm quite surprised that I've fallen so in love with this Burnt Gold Oversized Shirt to be honest - I think the loose-fit shape drew me to it first. Doesn't it just look like the cosiest, perfectly deconstructed piece ever? I'd pair this with a pair of my trusty denim cut-offs, patterned tights and lace-up boots for a laidback Summer look!

How would you style these pieces for the Summer? What are your favourites from Yayer this season?
In case you hadn't realised, this was my entry for Yayer's Blogging/Styling competition! The prize sounds absolutely amazing and would be a dream for me, cheesy as that sounds! And I also thought I'd challenge myself to write a focused blog post about a brand, and I've surprisingly really enjoyed it, so let me know if you'd like to see more of these types of posts once in a while!

You can find Yayer here on their SHOP/FACEBOOK/TWITTER.
