My Favourite Outfits of Summer 2013

Well my lovely readers, I think it is safe to say that we have had our summer.  With temperatures coming in at a real feel of 15 degrees I think autumn may be on it's way, but in celebration of the best summer that we've had for as long as I can remember, I have put together my favourite outfits of the summer and I would love it if you can tell me your favourite.

My top outfit has to be my floral midi dress. I picked this up in the ASOS sale; it has without doubt been my best buy of the year so far and I've received so many compliments on it.  I usually wear this with either black or bright blue heels and keep my accessories to a minimum.  I think the dress is speaks for itself.

I have to admit that this jumpsuit doesn't actually belong to me.  I borrowed this from my good friend Rosie for a night out partying.  She bought this from Primark for a bargain of £8 and it's such a shame that I have to give this back.  Unsurprisingly I added a hat to this outfit which is also from Primark; I love the retro feel it gives to this outfit.  This jumpsuit works great with gladiator sandals but I chose my platform heels from New Look for a more glamorous night out look.

I've had this zebra print maxi dress for a couple of years.  I bought it from New Look for £25 and it is one of my fail safe dresses, more so than the little black dress.  I love how versatile this dress is; I've worn this to a black and white garden party with heels and statement jewellery but I can dress it down with flip flops for a casual picnic at the park.

I bought these shorts from Zara after I spotted them on honeymoon, but unfortunately I wasn't a savvy packer and there was not an inch left in my suitcase, so I had to wait until I got home to buy these.  My blouse is from Ted Baker and I've had this for years and I've worn it so rarely that it almost ended up in the charity shop bag, but I'm so pleased it didn't.  My heels are from Primark and I adore clashing colours so I couldn't resist putting blue and orange together.

I don't just love clashing colours, I also adore clashing prints.  I first spotted this style on The Guardian website and I was instantly inspired.  It was the perfect opportunity to wear my black and white stripped tee from Zara; another piece inspired by my honeymoon.  I immediately fell in love with these floral trousers from Next, they are so bold and instantly add oomph to an outfit.  My Primark blue heels have made another appearance here and they give that extra bit of height that is needed in such loud trousers.

So there you have it, my favourite outfits of the summer, which is yours?
