I'm British, so starting this post with a comment about the weather is okay, right?

Thoroughly basking in the warm weather we have in England at the moment, it's quite overcast but nice and warm, if not a little humid. I realised when getting ready this morning that my wardrobe isn't prepared for warmth at all! I'm much more of an autumn dresser: I adore warm, muted colours and layering, and hardly dare to bare for the heat. How do you dress for the summer?

(Top, A boutique in Hong Kong;
Shorts, c/o Motel Rocks;
Peeptoe wedge shoes, Urban Outfitters;
Peace bracelet, c/o Mulberry;
Bunny bracelet, Dolly Bow Bow.)

Having said that, today I wore a tee that I bought in Hong Kong a few summers ago. (I miss it so much!) It has a huge bow, light grey marl and a sweet lace trim, and is probably a little girlier than my usual tailored style. Paired it with a bare neck and my new Motel shorts, which are so perfectly eccentric. I chose them at the Motel Rocks Spring blogger evening a few weeks ago and couldn't wait for them to arrive. They are the prettiest light green-blue colour with a sandy, palm tree print, and would look so nice with a bralet and sheer shirt, as they're high-waisted! Also added a charm bracelet with my usual Mulberry bracelet for something extra, and my multi-coloured nails. Because I'm five and because I'm nervous about starting my internship on Monday.

In other news, I'm all moved in and unpacked now, so you might see some normality around these parts again. My wardrobe is back to its' colour-coordinated 'finest', although I'm about to rummage through and consign most of it to charity and the other part to a blog sale. Eeep. ♥

  7. Oh I'm the same! I feel I have no summer clothes.. But I say this I really do. I don't stick to winter clothes, or summer clothes. I wear things for the summer in the winter and things in the winter for the summer.. Then when I buy new things for summer I'm like naaaah doesn't work! Ha.
    Nightmare. I don't think we're ever prepared whatever the weather.
    BUT ENOUGH OF MY JIBBER JABBER.. That is quite possibly one of the sweetest tops! I love the lace trim! xx

  10. Those shorts are perfect! I love 'em. Looking really lovely sweet :) Wish I could have been wearing an outfit like this today - had to stuff it out in my horrible work uniform of black trousers and polyester shirt, ugh! xx

  11. I'm more of an A/W dresser as well - I just love my layers. It just pains me to get my legs out, lol. :) x

  12. I love these shorts, so cute and summery. I was not enjoying the heat yesterday as I was not prepared for good weather - black opaques in the summer just feel wrong! Glad to hear that you're all unpacked and settled back in. x

  13. You definitely sound like me in the first paragraph. I'm in love with the Autumn season cause its so much styling you can do with layering and the colors. I'm currently looking at my closet boggled as to what to wear now that the weather is warming up. But lovely outfit hun. Xoxo

  14. I'm the same, I prefer dressing for the A/w too. I felt like I was melting today, the sweaty look isn't attractive :P You look so sweet though, the print on the shorts is ace.

    I think a bodice type top would look lovely on you. Topshop have some in, theres a blue/white one. They aren't the most comfortable tops in the world, I wish I went a size up when I bought it a year ago!

  15. I adore those shorts. Like you I don't like baring in the heat- especially my legs - I feel naked! My wardrobe is overflowing as well - I really need to charity shop it or there's a wee place around the corner from me that gives you money per bag or something.

    Good Luck on your internship. I'm sure you will absolutely fine :). xx

  16. those shorts are so nice, very summery!
    I can't believe the weather at the moment. here in scotland, "nice weather" is considered to be "its not raining". todays its been 23 degrees, meant to be even more tomorrow! strange to believe weather like this is actually possible in the UK :)

  17. These shorts are so cute, but I'm definitely not prepared for summer dressing! I looked at my summer dresses this morning and then at my legs qhich haven't seen daylight for a while. Definitely no happening just yet! Good luck with your internship on Monday :) I'm sure it'll go really well! xx

  19. Love the print of the shorts ! I've been eyeing some pieces from motel, and this is one of them haha :)

  20. Oh those shorts are adorable- I love the print! I always have trouble dressing for the summer, I love layering up for the winter so much that it's weird for me to go outside without a cardigan and scarf and tights! I usually just buy a few floral dresses to last me the summer. Good luck with your internship, I'm sure you'll do fantastically! X

  22. Funky shorts! I'm definitely more of a cool-weather dresser as well. In the summer I like to wear cotton or rayon dresses, because they breathe so much better. Ooh, good luck for starting the internship!

  25. I'm more of an autumn dresser too - I like being cosy in cardigans and wearing boots! Summer is tricky, especially in temperamental Britain! Good luck for the start of your internship, can't wait to hear all about it! x
