We are in the midst of a heat wave here in Ireland and I got to wear my new favourite Cupro shorts from Topshop. I love the sports luxe trend and these shorts are perfect. I love the sporty style, the material and the colour. Grey is one of my favourite colours and it’s so easy to wear. These shorts will be perfect for nights out also, especially with nude or blush tones. I love them now but I must say I was initially a little bit disappointed when I received them (I ordered them online). The shape of them means the front material is just flapped over the back, thus you can literally lift the front material up, or rather the wind could blow it up. Not something you want to happen of course. But I did really love them and hated the thought of returning them so I simply sewed the two pieces of material together. It took two seconds and worked perfectly so I would still highly recommend them.
White bags are really on trend at the moment and I really wanted a large white clutch. I had a white clutch from Zara on my June Wishlist (along with the shorts) but I never purchased it as it was €60 and as it’s white it would only get scuffed and be impossible to keep clean. So I was very happy to find this one from Penneys for €12. I always go for better quality (thus more expensive) pieces but sometimes Penneys is your best option. I have posted these trainers before in my White Luxe post a couple of weeks ago and I know I’ll be posting them again, I love the sports luxe look they give to an outfit.
I posted this Missguided varsity tshirt on my Facebook page when I first ordered it a few weeks ago and shared the link where to purchase it. It is now sold out from the website (however there are many similar styles). Make sure you like my Facebook page to find links to some great pieces, I will be linking more and more items and purchase from that page. I also have my July Wishlist post coming up later in the week so keep an eye out for that also.
