Summer shopping stresses me out.

Five years into blogging at DB and I think we can all attest to my love for a good slouchy jumper, a scarf and a darn good coat. But last week, that heatwave in England paired with a pre-date night panic led me to picking up a few new bits including this camisole.

(Just don’t ask me to tot up how much $ I drop on these glorified vest tops…)

Anyway, I digress. This new camisole has pretty cool cut-outs and a nice V-back, and did a good job of helping me to “keep my cool” for a first date the other weekend. I am so lesser practiced on first date etiquette. Like, do I pretend that I’m pretending to be terrible at pool? Do I beat him at air hockey or not…? Should I really recount anecdotes from The Clumsiest Day of a Clumsy Girl: An Autobiography by Michelle? The outfit didn’t do too badly though; (I teamed my new cami with leather-look leggings and some cut-out boots) it even nabbed me a round two.

Currently really into shoe shopping at the moment, despite my previous “Summer shopping stresses me out” statement. I think I’ve bought a new pair every week this month. These were a pretty lucky find in the new H&M that’s opened up at home. Actually I did bad things to my bank balance that day… I really like the “simple band across the foot” look but also like the whole two-part look.

What’s your current shopping guilty pleasure?

PS. Here’s your obligatory I heart 3-day weekends remark from me. You’re welcome.

  13. Ohh I have a similar pair from H&M in pink (ft. some garish glitter) but for the life of me can't keep them on, so had to do a makeshift ankle strap with ribbon on a loop at the back of the sandals! Never seen primary colours look so chic (you being the yellow obv). Gonna have a browse of the River Island website now!

    1. Aw yeah, garish glitter ;) haha I can barely keep these on my feet either, it takes me twice as long to get anyway. Thanks dear - all about the primary colourz!

  14. Why are camisoles so pricey, that's cut outs for christ sakes, haha, I think this was the one's Patricia Bright had on her recent youtube haul and it looks fab on you both.
