The British summer we are enjoying this year is just amazing! I’m drinking cold coffees outside, building a (not beauty products enhanced) tan and most importantly I am investing in my favourite summer outfit combination-high waist skirts and cropped tops!
Being 5ft 2″ means that I will take anything that will give me the illusion of a little bit of extra height. And a high waist skirt does exactly that, adding some length to my legs. Also, having the typical Mediterranean shape means that I have a smaller waist and an erm… generous bum so the cropped top draws attention to the smallest part of my body.
Here’s my favourite summer outfit from Urban Outfitters. The vibrant red colour of their Emilia Button-Through Cami top makes me feel like I am on holidays somewhere in the Italian riviera and the matching style skirt is super comfy, perfect for the hot weather.
Another favourite summer outfit is my H&M pleated skirt which is the ultimate night to day piece. I can wear it in the office with a white shirt but I love matching it with my yellow-yes I actually bought a yellow top!- Zara top.
Here are some other beautiful crop tops I have my eyes on at the moment:
And here are some some of my favourite skirts on my list ❤️
As you might have noticed, I have also embraced the head band trend this summer! Not all of them suit me unfortunately- I look better with minimal,smaller ones than the big, vibrant, floral head bands I adore on other people!
But if I could, I would totally get my hands on something like this gorgeous Zara head band:
