Spring Tops

Blogathon: Day 3 (Blogging every day of the Easter holidays)

Since the clocks went forward on Easter Sunday, I feel as if summer has finally arrived. (Mainly) gone is the snow that has occupied our lives for the last 6 months; we are beginning to see a glimpse of sunshine, I'm now starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Summer is arriving, and it's bringing a mountain full of gorgeous summery clothes with it.
Obviously, I haven't finished my summer wardrobe as at the end of March, I lacked the determination to find  spring/summer appropriate clothes when snow was still dwindling. However, I managed to take a shopping trip to the fab new Trinity shopping centre in Leeds and picked up a few tops that have been included in this post.
(I've found a new spot in my wall to photograph outfits, which gives a good white background and quality focus. Yay!)
NEW LOOK £12.99
I picked up this beauty in the brand spanking new New Look store in Leeds, and I think it is just amazingly gorgeous. Personally, it just screams summer. The pretty flowery/sun-shaped pattern is sheer whilst the back is thick material with buttons down the back. It is quite a high neck and with such a detailed design, I feel it doesn't need a necklace, but be sure to bulk it up with chunky bracelets!

This top is an absolute bargain and looks more expensive than it actually is. I wore this on Easter Sunday with a pair of Topshop denim leggings and I felt incredibly summery. It's chiffon-like feel makes it feel pricey, when in fact it's dirt cheap! Amazing buy!

H&M, £7.99
This gorgeous grey marl oversized t-shirt will be perfect to throw on over leggings or jeans in summer as it nails sophistication without the effort (or the price tag). The bottom pictures focuses on how the t-shirt offers more than first meets the eye; the rainbow dotted specks add a little extra something to this plain yet stylish top.

My mum picked out this sheer top for me last year in the River Island sale and I immediately fell in love with it. The unusual print is what makes this top special, it feels fab on and can be dressy or toned down with jeans or leggings and converse. I think it's the perfect thing to wear on holiday either with shorts or tucked into a back maxi.

Last year, this was by far my most worn top. The intricate floral detailing made me instantly drawn to the top and the moment since I purchase it, I barely took it off. It was ideal for every occasion, either dressed up with a skirt or down with my pale denim Topshop leggings.

When I first got this top, it had to be altered as the straps were too long, meaning I've been able to wear this palm tree beauty for years. I really do love it and wear it every summer, it is fail-safe and never lets me down when I need something to wear at the drop of a hat. I adore the fact that its many colours means it goes with anything and everything!

This selection of tops are the ones you will see me sporting day in, day out during the summery months!

Join me tomorrow for another post!
