Summer Haul- Topshop, Miss Selfridge, Office etc

I've got quite a few items to show you this month- a few of them are things I've been wanting for a while, and some of the other items are things I'll need for my holiday in about a month. The weather was so lovely again today so thought I'd take my pictures outside! I'll just get on with it-

First of all are these shorts which I've wanted for months! I featured them in my June Wishlist post and was so glad to finally get my hands on them. I love the distressed hems and the neon floral embroidery is gorgeous- it makes these shorts a little more original than just a normal pair of denim. They have a nice tight fit and are quite short but not too revealing luckily! I can see myself getting so much wear out of these in the sun.

Next up are these jelly sandals which I picked up for my holiday in July- I need to have some comfy, sturdy shoes for walking in, but these will also stop my feet getting too hot. I was a bit sceptical that they wouldn't be comfy but I love them. I love the silver sparkles inside the clear plastic, it's so cool and kind of futuristic.

So I picked up two nail polishes, both of which I have had my eye on for so long. First of all is a Topshop polish called 'Venus Fly Trap' which I saw online, but couldn't find it in store for ages. When I spotted it I was so pleased, as I adore the colour. It's a light apple green colour, it's quite bright with yellow undertones, it's so pretty and perfect for summer. I won't talk about the staying power etc as you probably know how much I love Topshop polished by now! The second is a silver Barry M polish- it's a 'nail effects' one, although it's only a metallic one, and it's just an excuse to charge an extra pound for it. I bought this to wear to my prom, as it will match perfectly with my accessories and be a nice finishing touch.
£5, Topshop and £3.99, Boots

This maxi dress is again, for my holiday. This will be perfect for when I can't have my legs out, but it's still really pretty. The paisley pattern is a little different, and I like the overlay on top as it just adds a bit of texture  and interest. The length is perfect for me (I'm 5 foot 4 and so usually things are too long for me) as it is a couple of centimetres off the floor so means I can walk easily without tripping over which I'm prone to do!

Finally is this hat, which will be perfect for keeping the sun off my face on holiday. It's pretty much a fedora with a wide brim, it's made of straw and is a perfect fit for my head. I love the neon pink thread around the brim as it is very simple but wouldn't look right without it.
£22, Accessorize 

Hope you enjoyed, have you been picking up anything for the summer?
