I hope you all enjoyed the little heatwave we had here in England last week, I planned to do a lot more outfit posts seeing as it was finally hot enough to start wearing my summer wardrobe but as usual the summer devil that is pollen got in the way.  I tried to enjoy the sun as much as I could and top up my Santorini tan but my hayfever kicked in at full force leaving me looking a sweaty, sneezy, puffy eyed mess and leading to several horrific nosebleeds.  I absolutely love summer but I hate the hayfever that comes with it, so for each day I spend outside I have to spend two days inside recovering.  Before it got too bad though I did mange to get some pictures of this outfit.  It may be a bit bland for summer, as summer is a time that you can really experiment with colours (which I am aiming to do a little more), but for me black and white will never go out of style and will always be one of my favourite combinations.  This to me is the perfect outfit for British weather, which can one minute be roasting hot sunshine and then in a split second change to cold wind and rain, as maxi skirts are nice and loose in the heat but keep your legs covered for when it turns cool and I like how this layered white crop top keeps it from looking too simple.  I love this crop top and will be wearing it to death this summer with high waisted skirts and trousers.

I have also been having a major dilemma with my hair.  I feel like this happens every summer when it is way too hot to leave my hair down and style it, as the heat just leaves it looking a flat greasy mess. I contemplated getting it all cut off and going for a "lob" (which I am still considering) but I know come winter I may regret it.  I love having longer hair and being able to try different styles which I won't be able to do so much with shorter hair.  After getting bored of sticking my hair up in a ponytail or messy bun this pull through braid has become my go-to hairstyle this summer, it's great for keeping the hair off my face and neck when I'm feeling hot.  I'm always looking for new summer hairstyles to try though to keep my hair out of my face, so if you have any ideas please let me know.

  6. I always get tempted to cut my hair during the summer when it's hot and humid. My curly hair just ends up going frizzy which is no fun. But I love having long hair in the fall and winter, so I like to put my hair in a side braid or ponytail during the summer instead. Love this outfit by the way!

  12. Sorry you've been having such a rubbish time with hay fever - it can be so debilitating! On the plus side you look super chic and I love your hair like this - I think this is actually a bit of a Kimmy K outfit (totally a good thing!!) x
