Working in retail and at a restaurant my hours really do not cater to good weather. I could be stuck in a sticky shop all day, feet swelling in my Russell & Bromleys, legs glued as I quoted "as if in a permanent vacuum" to my jeans. Or I could spend the whole day in a garden or beach with friends only to be faced with the thought of work that evening. I can't win !
In-between my dodgy hours I have sourced the ever growing sales in stores and found some key summer pieces that I am so pleased with and can't wait to share with you! If the day calls for some sun spread with rain and wind I slide into my white skinnies from Warehouse or River Island culottes for night. If the weather decides to play all day I slip into a light floral gypsy number from Zara and my white pool slides from Office online, which my mum can't believe I bought as she calls them "grannies shoes" - they most definitely are not.
Also to add, one crochet kaftan from Hollister and two OPI goodies from Fenwick's sort of sale (20% off beauty), a rosey/ orange and a shimmery pearl. Both ideal for tans.
Props to my sister who once said "if you find yourself in a Primark sale you are in a bad place", this is exactly where I ended up. But a few £2 tops later and I have myself a quick fold up turban and the odd beach tee, because for £2, sun cream and lolly stains are ok.

Prices and stock may vary and could possibly have gone down further! Plus, Office and Warehouse offer student discount on top of sale! Happy shopping
