August Favourites

Today's post is my August Favourites. All the things I've been loving in August as well as some new things I bought last month.

Clothing



First up is this green sequin dress from H&M. I'm in love with all the green sequin clothing I've seen around so I just had to get one and this one from H&M looks great and fits great too.



Next up is this Galaxy sweater from Romwe. If you know me then you know I'm OBSESSED with anything Galaxy print and I've been really wanting a galaxy print jumper to go with the rest of my galaxy collection so when this jumper went on sale I had to get it. I'm not too keen on the Starbucks part of the print but I still love the sweater.



I've been wanting a kimono for around 2 years now and I finally own one! I got this one for my birthday from New Look and it's perfect for what I wanted. It's a lot brighter colour than the picture shows and it feels great to wear even if the hot weather is coming to an end.



This shorts I've had a while but only got around to wearing them lately. Again I'm a lover of metallic clothing and these shorts just bring a unique look to any outfit.

These last 3 items are all the same crop vest tops in different prints from East Knitting on Aliexpress. I've been looking at their stuff for a while as they are a cheap replica of Black Milk Clothing who's prints I love. I decided to get a Deathly Hallows print, a galaxy print (No surprise there!) and a unique elephant print. As they have no tags in them I wear them backwards so that I can have a higher cut neck so they are very versatile items and I got them for £1.50 each so definitely a great bargain.


East Knitting

This top is also from East Knitting but I wanted a sleeved crop too and I love this one in Tartan as again I'm a lover of Tartan print and this was also super cheap at around £2. I forgot to mention that the material of all these items have a super silky feel so they feel great against your skin. They are not super see through like a lot of cheap replicas which is also great for the price.




Another all over print sweater from Romwe now. This time a Hogwarts castle print from the final Harry Potter film. I love the colours used and this sweater really stands out and looks unique. It also feels super soft and warm for such another cheap bargain.



This dress from Romwe is just in an amazing colour scheme. The colours look so good together especially with my green hair at the minute. It also feels super silky and great against my skin. I'm not too sure on the cut out parts at the side but I tend to wear a little vest or something underneath so not too much is on show.



These shorts are what I've been wanting to buy for over a year and I finally got them. I've been wearing them non stop all month and I just love how they are distressed. They also aren't super short which I find a problem with for most shorts as my bum doesn't hang out in these. Another great thing about these shorts are that they fit me perfectly which is something I find difficult with jeans and shorts.



Of course I had to feature the holographic skirt from Romwe. It's just a beautiful skirt in a lovely holographic print and shines some very lovely colours. I've featured this in an outfit post already but I might even include it in some more as I just love it so much.

Shoes



I won these shoes from the very lovely girl over at MeenaMeansMe (Go check out her blog) and they are absolutely amazing. They are huge platforms and I plan on featuring them in an outfit post very soon so keep a look out.



I bought these silver sandals in the Debenhams sale at the very start of August. They caught my eye because of the white sole and the metallic body which is something of a running theme throughout my blog as you may have noticed. These are super comfortable and because of the front platform make it seem like you aren't even wearing heels which is great.



Another great pair of shoes from La Moda. They just have a great selection. These boots are just beautiful and crazy at the same time. Again with the running theme of platforms and white. I also plan to feature these in an outfit post very soon.

Accessories 





Yes the same pair of sunglasses but in two different colours. I love round sunglasses and I have a load of similar ones. These are my favourites of the month though. They are huge and definitely stand out. 



If you have been around my blog lately you will have noticed this pendant of my favourite necklace. Of all the necklaces I own this is my current favourite and I wear it all the time. I'm definitely planning to get the same one in a number of colours.



This one I haven't actually received yet but I know when I get it I'm going to be wearing it loads as I've been looking for a coin necklace for a while and this super cheap and nice looking one came along and I just had to get it. It would look great with most outfits. 

Movies


Of course Catching Fire had to be in my favourites this month. I watched it again and I just love it and I am eagerly awaiting the first part of Mockingjay as I reread that again this month too.


Ender's Game is another film I re-watched and loved this month. Even though they left a lot out from the book I definitely really enjoyed the film and I plan on reading the book again as well as the rest of the series.

TV Shows 


A TV show I've been loving this month is Under The Dome originally a book by Stephen King. I've been really enjoying the mysterious story of this show. Basically a town get's trapped under a dome and have to find a way out while surviving inside the dome while a number of mysterious things happen.

Music


And last but not least my favourite song at the minute is definitely Black Widow by Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora. On first listen I was a little disappointed by the big build up and then no drop but after listening again I got obsessed with it and I now love it to the point where it's on repeat and I've found remixes of it I really like too. (It's just come on shuffle on iTunes as I'm typing this)

What are your favourite things of the month of August?

Outfit Of The Day: Holographic Layers



Today's outfit features a baseball top from Primark, a holographic skirt from Romwe, a pink crop top from H&M, a crystal point necklace from eBay and a pair of mirror sunglasses also from eBay.

The baseball top was a random buy I got from Primark ages ago. I have another one similar in a mint green colour but I bought this one in a size too large which is why I mostly use it as a kimono style jacket which seems to work well. 

The pink crop top was from the H&M sale a few years ago. It's a very simple crop top in a simple colour but looks great mixed with high waisted bottoms such as this skirt.

The skirt is my all time favourite skirt from Romwe. I LOVE holographic prints and this skirt fits perfectly high waisted and isn't too short. It's definitely brings a unique look to any outfit too.


The necklace is my favourite I own as I love the opal blue effect and I like the shape of it plus it's sort of like a choker necklace which is something I'm loving right now. Again this was a super cheap buy from eBay.


The sunglasses are also a cheap bargain from eBay. I'm obsessed with coloured mirror sunglasses as well as round sunglasses as I own so many pairs. I may have to make a post about my sunglasses collection if that's something you may be interested in. The only problem is the lighting in my room and my camera really doesn't do the coloured reflection justice. 

Baseball Top: Primark
Pink Crop: H&M
Skirt: Romwe
Sunglasses: eBay
Necklace: eBay

In regards to these outfit posts would you like me to go back to my old format and take pictures of the items separately liked I used to do or keep the posts like this? Let me know in the comments below. 

Outfit Of The Day: Wonderland


Today's outfit features a top from Unknown, some shorts from eBay and a double ring also from eBay.

The top I bought a while ago so I'm not actually sure where it's from but I love the pattern on the front as well as the colours. I like how the top is netted so it gives a really cool effect and keeps me cool in the warm weather.

The shorts are from eBay and again are really super cheap just like most of my wardrobe. They are a really cool silver colour and as I'm loving metallics at the moment they are perfect. They are a really great size and are good for summer which is sadly coming to an end. Let me know in the comments below if you would be interested in me starting to do eBay bargains posts or something similar.


The ring is a random ring I got from eBay. I love how unique it looks as I haven't seen anything similar around. I usually have trouble finding double rings which fit two of my fingers but this one seems to work well. I'm also loving really chunky rings too at the minute and my collection is slowly growing.


As you can tell my hair has faded super quickly in a few weeks but I trying to decide whether to dye it blue again like this to make it brighter or leave it and dye the rest of my hair a pastel pink. Let me know in the comments below what you think would look good.

Shorts: eBay
Ring: eBay
Hair dye: Bleach London

If you could have any hair colour what would it be?

Outfit Of The Day: Neon Lace


Today's outfit features a sheer lace top from Primark, a crop vest from eBay, Daisy shorts from Matalan and a ring from eBay.


The lace top I grabbed at the last minute while I was in Primark. I'd been wanting a similar one for a while and this one at £3 on sale caught my eye right before I went to the check out so I just had to buy it. It's a really pretty cream colour and has nice fringe features on the bottom. Overall a great top for summer.

The green crop vest was from eBay which I won in a 50p auction so it's definitely good value for putting under sheer tops and it's a really nice colour which stands out nice through the lace.

The shorts I got from Matalan a while ago. They are a nice thin material which is great for summer and has a daisy print on which is a print I'm loving this year. They are high waisted and actually fit really well on me which is something I love about them. 


The ring is another random one from my collection which I got from eBay. It's one of my current favourites as I'm loving this chunky type of ring at the minute and plan to get some more. It also fits great on this finger and doesn't feel loose or too tight at all. 

Lace Top: Primark
Green Vest: eBay
Daisy Shorts: Matalan
Ring: eBay

Outfit Of The Day: Over The Rainbow


Today's outfit features a rainbow dress from Romwe and some rings I got from random places.


The dress is from Romwe and includes some beautiful colours and you all know how much I love multicoloured rainbow pastel items so as soon as I saw this I knew I had to buy it. I bought it when it was in the Romwe sale for $9.99 and I'm so glad I did because I love it. It is a really nice silky material too so it feels great against the skin and is a really good dress for summer. It does have cut out sides and back which can't be seen in these photos but I wore a bralet underneath.


With the rings I'm not sure where they are from as I have such a big random selection of rings but I figured I'd pair this dress with the big ring which shines nice different colours in the light as that goes perfectly with the dress and I also put on the daisy ring to add a bit of cuteness to the outfit.

Dress: Romwe
Rings: Random Selection

August Wishlist

I figured as it's my birthday this month (In 4 Days) and I'm a little late to do July Favourites I'd do a August Wishlist post. So here are some of the things I'd love to buy this month and thing's I'm really loving at the moment. As you can tell from the list I'm still really into pastel colours and metallics.
