Keeping up with the crochet…

Keeping up with the crochet...

This is another photo taken from (obviously) my favourite blog/site/online clothes shop – Free People.

I never used to be a massive fan of crochet, but I’ve been seeing it everywhere recently! And when I think about it, I can see why it’s such a great summer trend!

It looks pretty…. you can wear it with everything…. you can where it over swimwear…. you won’t get too hot in it…. the list goes on and on.

I’ve been having a little browse for some nice (and cheapish!) crochet items so here we go:
(I’ve found some BEAUTIES!)

Kiera Crochet Knit Strappy Top £20 (Boohoo)
http://www.boohoo.com/new-in/kiera-crochet-knit-strappy-top/invt/azz31664
Seriously who could tell the difference between this and something from Free People?! It’s soooo prettyyyy, the circular design looks gorgeous and it’s nice and strappy, ready for summer festival days!

Crochet Shorts £24 (Topshop)

How cute are these!? Easy to wear with a simple tee or strap top… my only concern is festival grass stains!

Lucca Couture Crochet Shift Dress £47.59 (NastyGal)
http://www.nastygal.com/product/lucca-couture-crochet-shift-dress
Ok, so a little more pricey… but definitely a favourite! Really pretty detailing and simple to wear, no need to dress it up.

All you need to worry about now girls is the grass stains! – Or you could take note of the photo and buy some colourful crochet!

Peace and Love x

Time for TEA :)

There’s nothing better when it’s wet and cold outside than having a really nice cup of tea. And TEAPIGS is that cup of tea! For my birthday, my mum sent me a selection of TEAPIGS tea and I cannot wait to get trying! Today I’ve had two (oops!) Cups of chocolate flake TEAPIGS tea and it is honestly heaven in a mug. If you love tea and love chocolate then get purchasing this stuff! I’ll keep you posted on the other weird and wonderful flavours!

Happy tea drinking xxx

Need a pair of these beauties!

Need a pair of these beauties!

Dancing Leopard’s magic pants double up as a slouchy jumper and a jumpsuit! 3 items of clothing in one – perfect for festival season in the attempt to pack light!
I really like the Geometric design and the Green Aztec ones.

But the jumpsuits on this site are equally amazing! So very tempted to break the budget yet again for festival clothes… So just blogging about them instead!

Lusting over festival fashion

Lusting over festival fashion

I’ve promised myself that I’m going to be better with money and stick to my new budget, but I’m finding it very difficult after looking at fashion blogs and the Free People blog is a prime example! I love the majority of the outfits they put together, but they are unfortunately slightly out of my price range! So, I thought I’d be productive and do some bargain hunting/outfit matching on Boohoo and here is what I found:

Crochet dress: http://www.boohoo.com/restofworld/new-in/evie-crochet-tunic-jumper-dress/invt/azz31859
Fringed bag: http://www.boohoo.com/restofworld/bags/jess-stud+tassel-trim-hobo-bag/invt/azz37698
Hat: http://www.boohoo.com/restofworld/new-in-accessories/darcey-thick-straw-trilby-with-ribbon-trim/invt/azz31434
Necklace: http://www.boohoo.com/restofworld/necklaces/lola-bold-triangle-necklace/invt/azz54814
Gladiators: http://www.boohoo.com/restofworld/sandals/sammena-ankle-strap-gladiators/invt/azz35442
Bodysuit (for under the crochet!): http://www.boohoo.com/restofworld/style-steals/sofia-basic-spaghetti-strap-bodysuit/invt/azz37087

And there we have it… all for under £100 (£88 exactly!) Enough money saved to purchase some tasty festival food and some ciders in the sun!

Happy shopping 🙂
