First things first, i'm going to join every UK blogger and say: How hot is this weather?! I seriously can't cope, as i've got older i've began to resent the heat and have no clue what to wear to stay cool. I somehow ended up in a cotton shirt and patterned trousers on the hottest day of the year. God only knows what went through my mind on that morning. But still, i'd much rather embrace this heat than the rain. Cold I can deal with but rain just gets right on my wick.

I've developed a obsession with co-rds which is getting my bank account in a right old state but luckily I was very kindly gifted a New Look voucher at their press day. I spotted this in my local one and ordered it swiftly online when I got home. It's made from perfect thin crepe-like material making it amazing for the summer. I don't think it's going to leave my body much over the next few months. Just like these sandals really. Even my boyfriend who notices nothing asked me why I had the same pair of shoes on four days running...


  1. Absolutely adore this combo on you Sophie!

  2. Really lovely outfit, I've got an obsession with co-ords too! haha


  3. So gorgeous! I totally agree, it's super hot and I never know what to wear! I love your bag <3 xx

  4. This is such a gorgeous outfit! I absolutely love the print on your co-ord.

  5. Such a beautiful two piece. I'm loving New Look at the moment, especially the shoes. xx


  6. I don't blame you though. If you've found something perfect and love it, then keep wearing it!

  7. Don't apologise for spending loads on co-ords when you look this fit! Seriously lush - I love that print on ya girl <3 Claire @ Jazzpad
