Summer Refresh

One of my favourite things about welcoming in the warm weather is being able to update my wardrobe, no longer am I bound to sweatshirts (even though I'm wearing a sweatshirt as I type this, shh) and ankle boots but I can free my toes from their leather prison and embrace new accessories!

This is what I wore for ambling around Manchester on Saturday, a super comfy outfit for running errands in with accessories to make it look a little less like pyjamas. This outfit also includes a couple of steals, I picked up the trousers in the Gap sale for around £10 and they are already my favourite items of clothing. The tan Carvela Tote bag* is another of my current favourites, I picked it up from Secret Sales in their Kurt Geiger and Carvela sale a few weeks ago and it is my go-to weekend bag, it's so roomy and perfect for throwing everything in. Dream.

While I was in Manchester at the weekend, I had my skin scanned for sun damage at Destination Skin in House of Fraser, it was pretty scary but so worth knowing what damage has been done and how to fix it! I'll be posting about my journey to healthy skin so keep a look out for a series of posts on skincare awareness. Let me know if you have ever had your skin checked for sun damage too, it's so interesting to see!

What I'm wearing: Mango striped jumper, Gap jogging bottoms, Next wedges, Larsson and Jennings Watch c/o Farfetch and a Carvela Tan Tote Bag c/o Secret Sales.

I've also been giving my hair a refresh ready for summer with these lovely products from Yves Rocher, the rinsing vinegar is an absolute miracle worker, it's made my hair so shiny and light!


  1. I love your wedges!
    It's so nice to be able to leave the house without wearing 50 layers.

  2. Working in derm I've already been subjected to the Visia (takes the photographs to show damage) luckily my skin is mainly ok, but glasses never used to have UV coatings. Sadly despite sun glasses in summer I have quite a lot of damage around my eyes from day-to-day UV from wearing glasses since I was 8 :( I now pile on the skin products like crazy!
    Anyway, back to your outfit... I LOVE the bag. Jealous!

  3. Love your striped top, I'm a huge stripes fan so straight into the feels with this one
