Summer Buys

Hello!

Summer is fast approaching us all, and even though its only April, I've started the Mexico holiday countdown! (The beginning of June for two weeks, I can't wait!) 

This countdown includes obsessing over flight beauty regimes and how many flip flops I can pack in my suitcase with my weight allowance! 
I love summer, its by far my favourite season, every year I'm guilty of over buying travel sized products and bikini tops - and lets be honest, the British weather will only permit me to wear denim shorts a good two weeks out of this year (and even then I'll probably have be in a different country) 

I am however sending positive vibes to the weather gods - so here are a few of my summer purchases thus far, expect a few more posts like this before June! C'mon summer 2013!



Moonstone Collar Tips


I loved these collar tips as soon as I saw them, I bought them, believe it or not from Tesco! They were a steal at £4, and I couldn't leave them behind. I pinned them onto my Forever 21 polka dot chambray shirt, I love the light denim and gold combo. 
The only downside to the tips were that they constantly moved! I had to rearrange them a lot otherwise they ended upside down, which looked strange - I think part of the problem is that the pin backings were too bulky, and therefore couldn't rest properly against the shirt. 
However, for the price I paid I think I can live with this slight inconvenience.



H&M Nude and Bright Creepers


I found these shoes in the sale a couple of months ago, I really couldn't make my mind up about them, but they were the last pair in my size so I decided to take the plunge - they were originally £19.99 reduced to £7 and I figured at the time I'd get some wear out of them this summer. 
They are something I wouldnt normally wear, and I've avoided the creeper trend so far, but I actually really like these shoes! 
I think they are a love or hate item, and I was leaning more towards hate, but I can imagine what they will look like with a tan, denim shorts and a white vest top - simple and summery with a pop of colour!

Collar Tips - £4, Tesco
Shoes - £7, H&M
Denim Shirt - £12.75, F21

Is anyone else eagerly anticipating summer? Have you bought anything for it yet?
