Outfit: Crop and a Bandeau

black crochet shorts - eBay 
leather boots - topshop
round sunglasses - urban outfitters 
tribal necklace - primark 


This crochet vest would be a finalist if there was a competition for bohemian/festival wear. It was only £12 from Primark and it looks a lot more expensive than it is - just look at all of the intricate detailing going on! Whilst it's not the most versatile number, I still love it nonetheless. I wish I had an upcoming summer holiday as this would be the winning candidate for the ultimate beach cover up! 

I wore this outfit a lot during those heatwave summery days that we had and it did a great job of keeping me cool without having to resort to full-time bikini wear. As the whole side of the body is exposed, I wore a nifty bandeau vest to avoid looking like a flasher and my trusty crochet shorts from eBay. The use of black helps to emphasise the scallop edges too. 

It's a softer way of wearing monochrome and I'm desperately trying to think of ways to incorporate this into my autumn/winter wardrobe! The thought of packing it away until last year is rather sad to think about!

I hope you're having a great day so far! :)
