SUMMERTIME, THINK IT WAS JUNE

top - new look
skirt - river island
shoes - matalan
watch - missguided

Hello lovelies! Hope you're all doing good and have had a lovely relaxing weekend. I actually work Saturdays, so my weekend extends to Monday, thank goodness! I've had a very, very busy week this week, my boyfriend's Mum got married, which was lovely, I've been working late a lot, been in and out of London and then went off to Cambridge to do some holiday shopping for my Holiday (in just over a week!) today - phew! On top of all this, I had an incident involving a very temperamental laptop and lost all my blog photos - boo! I'd had so many posts planned and had edited all my photos, I'm just thankful I hadn't deleted them off my camera, otherwise there would have been some seriously angry tweets going on. Anyway, I thought rather than dig up those photos just now, I'd do an OOTD of the outfit I wore to Cambridge today.

Today was really lovely and sunny so it was the first chance I'd had for a long time to wear something pretty and summery so I made the most of it with floral prints, bright colours and outdoor photos! Chloe's Way used to be entirely made up of outfit posts but now they are becoming rarer and rarer, partly because I work in uniform five days and week and mostly because I've become fussier and fussier with photos and image quality, that when I do plan an outfit post, I'll load the photos to my laptop, realise I hate them all and give up! So definitely let me know if you'd like to see more OOTD's!

I actually found this top sifting through my sister Hannah's wardrobe. She's just got back from Uni and bought all her stuff back with her and her wardrobe is seriously a treasure trove. I absolutely love this top from New Look, it's a fairly sheer, chiffon material on the front with a gorgeous bright floral print and a lace back. I loved how the flowers perfectly matched my pinky coral Rive Island skirt, I felt so feminine and girly, which I love! I'm not sure how old this top is so sorry if you can't get your hands on it! The skirt is still in stores now though as far as I know.

I included the last photo to show how I did my hair, as I used the wonderful Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray. I'm avoiding heat as much as I can at the moment and figured it was the perfect time to give this a go. I sprayed it all over my dry (fairly straight) hair and just scrunched it a little and ruffled it up at the roots for volume and this was the result! I didn't go for full on waves as I didn't want to create a 'wet' look, but I love the volume and texture this gave my usually fine, flat hair. I'll do a full post on this at some point but I thought I'd give you a quick first impression!

Hope you enjoyed, let me know what you think! Leave a comment if you'd like to see more OOTD's, I miss doing them!
