I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

Fashion Wishlist | A Topshop Problem

Posted on

Topshop is one of the high street beloved fashion shops, for me, it hadn’t always been one of my favourite shops. However, that is all changing and now there is a Topshop problem.

Growing up, I’ve always been really aware of Topshop, I mean after all that where all the cool kids go to buy their cool clothes. There was a period when I would shop in Topshop religiously, not because I thought I was one of the cool kids – but because I wanted to be one of the cool kids. There was even a period before that while still at school when I thought I was too ugly and small to shop in Topshop; that what all the cool kids said to me at school. (Once I left school, I soon got over – especially when my mum told me it ridiculous and of course, I could shop in there.)

During that period when I would shop in Topshop religiously (just ask my husband, there were many moments when we first met where I would drag him round a Topshop store!) I would happily spend a fortune buying clothes. Maybe because at that time I was still living at home and I was working, so I had all this disposable cash and it was brilliant!

But then as I got older, I found Topshop to be out of my budget. I sort of discovered in my mid-20s that Topshop was quite expensive and I couldn’t afford to buy anything. I and I am sure a lot of other clothes consumer, went somewhere cheaper to buy our clothes along the high street.

And that how it been for me, for a while. Admiring Topshop from afar but not really going the distance and taking a closer look.

That was up until recently, I was up in London Oxford street and I thought to myself that I would take a look at their flag street store. I mean it would be silly of me not to.

Topshop flagstreet store is 3 floor of nothing but clothes. Well ok, one floor is dedicated to accessories. It was at one time the biggest clothes store in Europe, not sure if it still is.

So I went in and took a look at everything, and my gosh a wave of nostalgia washed over me. It felt like old time and it has been too long.

Maybe now I’m older and I’m more settled with life, got my mortgage and job sorted. That I feel Topshop is no longer out of my budget. Not only am I older, but wiser and my style of clothes has changed.

Now I can be of the cool kids and I can now shop back in there, though now I think about it – all the cool kids now shop in Zara.

Me, being me have made a small wish list of clothes that I am loving from Topshop. So that is why there is a Topshop problem, me wanting to buy them all –but not really able to afford it. I’m sure I can buy one item and It won’t break the bank.

I thought I would show you my Topshop wishlist and why there is a Topshop problem.

    You have some really cute picks here. I mostly just wear jeans and t-shirts, so my wardrobe is pretty lame, but every now and then I dress up a little bit.

    I don’t buy my clothes from there but I have to admit that lacy dress is really beautiful. 🙂

    Never used to be a fan of them either! Too expensive and found them to feel cheap and not very well made.
    But they’re really turned it around – even if they are still pricey!

    How freakin pretty is that star wrap dress! oh my word.. I need it

    I used to love Top Shop when I was younger but we don’t have one round here. Probably just as well or I’d end up spending too much. Pretty clothes Anna.

    I really do love everything you picked out. TOPSHOO is beautiful but it is really expensive.

    I love that star print wrap dress!!! I’ve never heard of topshop. We don’t have that where I am.

  • I’ve never heard of this brand, but I love all the styles you chose. I wonder if they ship to the US? I buy a UK brand clothing for my youngest (Mini Boden and Johnnie B) because they seem to be better made and a lot less revealing for her age.

    I wear, like, two brands of clothes and that’s it, but after I lose my baby weight I’m going on a wardrobe replacement mission, so I’ll keep Topshop in mind.

    These are some cute outfits you’ve picked out here. I personally usually go towards the solid colors.

    I really love the True Romance Tea Dress. It’s so cute and it would be totally flattering for me. Too bad I live in the states.

  • Terri Steffes

    I love these styles. They are way to form fitting for me, but I know they would look amazing on the right woman. I love the pink lace!

    Those prints and fabrics are gorgeous. I am sure TopShop is one great store and if ever… I am in England I would love to shop there.

  • Karen Morse

    Top Shop does have a lot of choices! I am loving these dresses especially the lace one. I think it’s nice that you rediscovered them, they have affordable clothes but I also wait for sales!

    I love the star print wrap dress. That store sounds gigantic. I haven’t been in a Top Shop store but will be on the lookout when I am in the city.

    Such cute dresses. They have a very modern yet retro feel, which I like. I can’t say I’ve ever been to Topshop as it wasn’t around in the states when I was younger. There are a few stores here in the US now so I might need to stop by.

  • Cindy Ingalls
    August 22, 2017

    I’ve always heard great things about TopShop and anytime I’ve seen hauls from there I can see why it is so popular. All of those dresses are so fun and so unique.

    Beautiful out fits. I don’t think we have a Topshop in the US

  • HilLesha

    I love that starry dress! I find that topshop is still a bit expensive for me, so I don’t shop there often except for my nice or special occasion outfits.

  • Angela Bethea
    August 23, 2017

    Oh my gosh I totally like the style of lace detail mini dress. I do agree that they have a lot of lovely outfits to choose from.

  • Brittany

    The pink and floral top are beyond adorable! I would love to try them on with leggings! I’m all about cute tops especially as summer is ending and fall is almost here!

    The star print wrap dress is absolutely gorgeous. I would dress it up with some silver shoes for a night out on the town.

  • Yasmin Ali

    We don’t have topshop in America (that i’ve seen) but it’s on my list to shop there when I visit London! However, good to keep in mind the budgetting.
