STRIPE BARDOT TOP - H&M / JAMIE JEANS - TOPSHOP / BUCKET BAG - URBAN OUTFITTERS (SIMILAR) / ARIZONA BIRKENSTOCK - SCHUH / SUNGLASSES - TOPSHOP
I have long been an advocate of H&M and when I nipped into my local store on Friday I was not disappointed. I picked up three items from their new 'Havana' styled pieces; the first being this chic Bardot striped top, a steal at £7.99!
Keeping my outfit simple for a Sunday we set off to pick up the car and head into town for a spot of home shopping...did I mention we've bought our first house!? Only to find that the car was trapped by the Sheffield Sky Ride and all roads leading into and out of town were a no go for cars. We had two options go home and 'chill' or amble into town (it's about a 30 minute walk) so we ambled and ended up having a very productive, rather lovely day. There was something quite freeing about being sans automobile, wandering through an over familiar city centre, finding nooks and crannies never before stumbled upon; buying fresh bedding, towels and some seriously chic marble salt and pepper pots; eating a delicious lunch, eating a delicious dinner. Watching the world, watching the people go by. Finishing with a rather funny, entertaining film, (Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart are a comedic dream team). This unexpected turn of events through a spanner in my
meticulous over analysed plan and instead of throwing my toys out of the pram I went with it and had one of the best days I've had in a long time.
Next weekend, weather permitting, set off from your house on foot, for the whole day, with your favourite person and see what you find. See what treasures you can uncover in your own city when you look at and explore it from a different angle. Oh, and if you pass a H&M pick up this top! I can already tell it's going to be one of my summer go to pieces.
