#3


After the sudden end to the rather summer like weather last week, I couldn't help but take advantage of the return of the slightly less warm but none the less, sunny climate. I decided with the help of two of my close friends (@katiebeere and @hannahsiddiqi) to raid my wardrobe in search of suitable spring garments and put katie's new SLR to use. Here are the results of three teenage girls 
 attempting to be serious whilst using a camera...

I bought these shorts from ASOS about a month ago in preparation for spring/summer 2012 and the recent weather was the perfect opportunity to take the tag off and showcase them. Light wash denim seems to be everywhere at the moment, probably down to the current pastel trend which seems to work well with both old and new members of my wardrobe. Paired with firstly, a year old miss Selfridge sheer shirt and secondly a brand new Topshop lace/flower combination crop top and denim shirt, we agreed these were definitely options for spring/summer 2012.



For a more 'boyish' (and slightly warmer!) look I teamed my Topshop top with skinny's and some canvas deck shoes I pulled out of my mums wardrobe just this morning.  The 'box' like shape of the top meant that a baggy bottom half probably would have looked a bit ridiculous so skinny jeans seemed to be a good option to go with.
I really love this outfit because it settles neatly in the middle of 'tomboy' and 'feminine'. But, if even that is too girly for you, a simple tee always looks good with skinny jeans and canvas shoes too.


meanwhile, my love for lace deepens with this beautiful Lipsy playsuit my friends kindly clubbed together for as a birthday present for moi...



I'm also undecided on whether lace on lace can work...




one of my favourite casual looks (although the bag sadly is not mine)...

Although pastels are in this season and I've been making the most of that as you can probably see from the pictures above, believe it or not there are other hot trends right now. One of which, is tribal print. The bolder, brighter and wilder the better and this top of Hannah's I just adore....
Hats off to Topshop for that one!
Apologies for all the head cropping, chipped nails, hair bands on wrists etc but it's harder than I thought to hide our amateur abilities! I'm hoping to get hold of more of the images from today soon and may have to post a couple of the not-so-great shots to share the embarrassment with you. However I had a lot of fun doing this shoot and showing you guys some of my favourite pieces, which is what really counts! *cheese*
