Best Of Designer Summer Sale

Who doesn’t love a summer sale especially when its a designer one full of cute colourful summer stuff. Net-A-Porter is in sale mode with up to 50% off selected items. The perfect justification to shop for new shiny things.

I have combed through the sales to bring you my favourites. The Moschino pharmaceutical I phone case would be mine in a heartbeat if it would fit my i phone 7. Now I want my old 6 back but i cracked the screen by dropping it under a bus. Ughhh.

Happy shopping

Stripe Shirt 3 Ways

I picked this shirt up for €3 which I wrote about here.  It has been the best summer find of the season so far. Once was an old very large XXL mens shirt has been a welcome addition. Because it is so versatile and can be worn so many ways. One shirt can create 3 different looks.

A dress. A swimsuit cover up & lastly an oversized boyfriends shirt.

Probably my favorite look below is as an oversized shirt tied at waist with denim shorts. Roll up those sleeves. Perfect for an everyday summery look.

Worn as a dress for some city strolling. It is a perfectly loose shape for even the hottest day. Although proportion wise its extremely oversized and wide the vertical stripes actually elongate the body and hide a burrito belly quite well.

Thirdly this second-hand mans shirt works as the perfect swimsuit cover up for poolside or beachside. Just throw it over your swimsuit accessorize with some sandals or slides and add a mojito.

Lastly add-on some of your favorite summer accessories and you are ready to go.

You don’t have to spend a truckload of money to update your existing wardrobe or add a new piece. It’s all about being creative and thinking and wearing things outside the box.

C’mon That’s 3 looks for €3. Which adds up to 1 dollar a look. Which is cheaper than a cheeseburger!

Golden Summer

I have been feeling so relaxed lately. Something about the sun streaming through open windows and the city just slowing down. I am at peace. It reminds me of home, my childhood and I just feel more like myself. I even look more like myself. And the sunsets lately have been mind-blowing.

This look is a combo of these 3 looks I have worn before. Here,  here & here.  All just styled with a bit more summer in mind. It is not always about adding a new piece of clothing but adopting what you already have and coming up with a killer combo.

These shoes have been in hiding over sandals and sneakers lately so I have to keep on reminding myself of them because I wanted a summer boot to alternate with.

Summer Second Hand Clothing Haul

Nothing beats a successful second-hand clothing haul. When vintage & recycled shopping it is often hit or miss. Sometimes you walk away with nothing to show for your hard work and sometimes you walk away with a mother load. I love nothing more than combing through racks and racks of old clothes until I end up finding a gem for myself. Or even better multiple gems! Which was what happened to me yesterday.  I basically managed to upgrade my summer wardrobe for €20.00.  It was like the vintage stars aligned to bring me a bounty of everything I had been lately looking for.

As you can probably see I am in full Summer Vacay mode and cant wait to hit beach as soon as possible.

I have been searching for weeks for a new pair of denim shorts. Everything in store seems to be too high-waisted and way too short for anyone over the age of 21. So I was so ecstatic when i found this baby for €5.00. They are the perfect mid wash boyfriend cut with a decent length and appropriate distressing. I can see myself living in these puppies.

I couldn’t resist grabbing this vintage blouse when I saw it. It is the most beautiful peach colour and the print looks like it has been hand painted. Note to self be careful when washing.  It’s a little too cropped of a top then I would normally go for but I plan to wear it over a swimsuit so I am not bare mid drifting anyone. Plus it was only €3.00. I can also imagine it paired with some light denim higher waist jeans.

Once again Stripes. I cant help myself. This is going to be worn as a dress over my swimsuit and paired with sandals or white converse. It’s actually a men’s XXL dress shirt but will be the perfect beach cover up. All for €4.00

Another pair of denim shorts. Dark blue wash with a quite high waist. I will make these my dressier shorts because of the wash and save them more for city strolling. Also bought for €5.00.

Finally my last score of the day was this incredible vintage straw beach bag. I have been on a serious hunt for an all straw beach bag for ages and this one fit all of my criteria. Not too big, not too small. No weird embellishments or typography and it was only €3.00. I am obsessed with everything straw this summer.

So yeah that’s how you update your summer wardrobe or supplement a vacation wardrobe for under €20.00. Which means more money for shoes and cocktails!
