Last Day of Summer

Top – Matalan // Shorts – Matalan // Sandals – Dorothy Perkins (similar) // Bag – TK Maxx // Jewellery – various charity shops

Just about everyone in existence is saying this, but I can’t believe it’s September tomorrow. A year ago, that would mean the dreaded school season returns. Today, that just means yet another working day. I have been counting down the hours to this summer bank holiday because there hasn’t been a public holiday since May and it’s a long time overdue. For most, the bank holiday means a day shopping or relaxing in the sun. Sadly, I live in the North and I can happily shop on my lunch break. However, I am visiting Birmingham with a group of my friends today to explore a city we haven’t been to before. But first, I wanted to show off my official ‘last day of summer’ look because it’s literally the last day of summer. 

My shorts are a new favourite, bought in a bid to look more summery throughout the warmer seasons because I never usually do. To go with them, I would usually gravitate towards a black t-shirt or something else very dull, so instead I chose to go with a bright pink top which brings out the lighter colours in my patterned shorts. My gladiator sandals have been in my closet for longer than I can remember, they’re still in such amazing condition and have become my go-to shoe for the warmer weather. I was actually quite surprised that the metallic tint of the sandals matches well with most items in my wardrobe, making them some of the most versatile shoes I own. 

I hope you’re enjoying your bank holiday weekend and get up to plenty of fun!
