What I Wore This Summer : Outfits Roundup

I love Summer and I love it’s fashion. Despite identifying as a fashion (and a bit of everything else) blogger, my content isn’t currently what I’d class as fashion heavy. Honestly, I struggle to justify a whole blog post centered around just one outfit when I can so effortlessly (I’m downplaying it) share it on my Instagram feed. Instead I prefer to share a roundup of outfits. Hopefully the variety is a little more interesting and it’s also a good excuse to chat about what I’ve been loving in general, which you know I love to do. So without further ado, here are the outfits and styles that I’ve been loving this Summer!

Pastel

 

Baby blues, baby pinks.. if the colour wouldn’t look out of place in a newborns bedroom then I want it in my Summer wardrobe. I think that pastel colours are so pretty and if you find them on the right shirt you can pair it with almost anything. It’s difficult to get wrong and you know you can count me as a minimal effort fan.

Bright

Okay so looking back, there clearly isn’t very much bright. I’m still including it because these trousers are just so cute. Next Summer I definitely need to introduce a few more splashes of colour into my wardrobe because honestly, it cheers me up and looks fab on an Instagram feed.

White

 

I feel as though lightweight, white clothing is such a Summer staple as it’s so effortless and breezy. Every year I experience an initial reluctance against constantly wearing white because I know it’s just a matter of time before I spill something stain-worthy down myself. Recently I’ve fully squared up to my fears and thankfully haven’t had any dinnertime disasters (yet).

This season, pretty white dresses have been out to get me. I was a little late in preparing my Summer wardrobe which left every dress I had to have out of stock in my size. When I finally found one I loved that actually fit me, I burnt it with an iron before ripping a hole in it in a ditch attempt to remove all of the brown with a scourer. As we speak it’s scrunched up in a linen basket somewhere, out of sight but still taunting me over how much I spent on a dress I can never wear. Part of me wants to attempt an up-cycle job with the currently unmaimed top half of it, so wish me luck.

Monochrome

 

Call me boring but I find black and white just so easy to style and the combination is effortlessly striking. In Summer I usually like to make sure that there are equal amounts or more of white throughout the outfit so that I still feel Summery. Bonus points for thin white material which is the best at keeping you cool.

    Sophie you’re so effortlessly gorgeous and you have your signature pose down to a tee, it’s so adorable! I really do love your fashion posts on here and on my insta feed and that Summer stripes dress is one of my favourite things I’ve ever seen you wear. It compliments you so wonderfully! Monochrome is my favourite all year round if I’m honest, I tend to keep my general outfits black, white and grey, sometimes with a bit of red and then I’ll get jazzy jewellery, scarves, coats etc to spruce things up if I want to! I find it such an easy way to keep things fresh and stylish and suitable for every season!

      Aw thank you so much Alice! I love that dress too. I’m so glad you love monochrome too, I was starting to feel a little boring putting this together and realising how little colour I have in my wardrobe haha! x

  5. September 9, 2018 / 1:22 pm

    You’re so beautiful and I love your style! My favourite outfits have got to be those bright orange trousers (I wish I could pull them off) and that monochrome striped button dress! Can’t wait to see your Autumn/Winter outfits!

    Your outfits are always so gorgeous Soph! I always love seeing your photos on my Instagram. You look so effortlessly stylish and fashionable. I’m loving the black and white outfits & your pink flowery top is so pretty. It’s a shame about the dress + iron mishap but can’t wait to see your upcycle job, I’m sure it will be fab. Thanks for sharing your summer outfits lovely! <3 xx

    I love these photos and all these outfits, you really styled summer so well, I think the gingham cold shoulder top is my fave

  9. September 9, 2018 / 8:15 pm

    All these outfits are so cute! I feel like your style is very similar to mine. I love the pastel tops at the start. Especially that floral top. So pretty! I can’t wait til it’s summer where I live so I can bring out all my summery clothing.

    • September 9, 2018 / 8:31 pm

      Thank you! Oh Summer is my favourite so I understand your excitement! x

    I’d literally wear every one of these outfits, although I do find that white clothing and I don’t get along. Rather, my daughter has a tendency to cover them in whatever sticky substance her hands are covered in!

      Haha oh no, at least you have your daughter as an excuse for the mess! x

  13. September 9, 2018 / 8:35 pm

    I love how you’re rocking the pastels! The fit is perfect and what better way to hang out than to wearing something comfortable and fashionable? I LOVE your floral top!! It adds a classy dash to the whole outfit vibe. I am a total sucker for white dresses. Love how you look with it! It’s so versatile as well :). It’s a bummer that your dress has a hole @__@… Sending you lots of luck! Thanks for sharing these outfits!!

      Thanks Nancy! I love white dresses too, I’m hoping I get better luck with them next year! x

  14. September 9, 2018 / 8:40 pm

    Every outfit looks great on you! I have that Topshop wrap blouse and I love it! Personally, I prefer fashion round up posts like this than an entire post dedicated to one outfit. Posts like these are way more inspiring from a shopping perspective 😂. A/W fashion is my favourite though. I can’t wait for the influx of deep burgundy that’s about to hit my wardrobe x

  15. September 9, 2018 / 8:45 pm

    I’m very much a fan of pastels and bright colours as well. I love that monochrome cold shoulder dress too. Great outfits! x

    Such cute outfits! I also love white but worry about spills! I’m so messy and I don’t mean to be!

    • September 11, 2018 / 3:12 pm

      I’m so glad I’m not the only non-child that manages to spill things often! x

  30. September 11, 2018 / 4:58 pm

    These are some of the cutest outfits and you wore them like a boss. I believe the monochrome is my favorite.

  31. September 11, 2018 / 10:19 pm

    You look sublime. What a lovely summertime collection. 💖

    I’m loving the bold colours and florals. 😍

    I’m getting super excited for Autumn fashion now. 🎃

    • September 12, 2018 / 6:58 pm

      Thank you lovely! I am too, Autumn clothes are so cosy! x

  32. September 12, 2018 / 8:29 am

    These clothes are beautiful. I love it

  33. September 12, 2018 / 11:36 am

    Aw, Soph, you always look so stylish and gorgeous! I love white but rarely wear it because I can guarantee I’ll spill something down it that won’t come out in the wash. I’m so sorry to hear about your dress but I’m excited to see what you upcycle it into 🙂 I have a few items of clothing that are in a pile by my sewing box. They’ve been there for months, haha, so maybe seeing what you do will inspire me too! Gorgeous pics, thank you for sharing and glad you had a lovely summer xx

      Aw thank you lovely! I’m the same, I always get that fear! I have a feeling mine will sit there for a while too haha! x

    • September 12, 2018 / 9:08 pm

      Aw thank you Jasmine! White is just a classic effortless look isn’t it x

  34. September 12, 2018 / 8:10 pm

    lovely outfits! White is so perfect for summer, whenever I see it I instantly think of beachy days! Love the florals and brighter pieces too, you look great! Thanks for sharing xx

  35. September 12, 2018 / 8:15 pm

    Omg I love your outfits, amazing blog post too! Xx

  36. September 12, 2018 / 8:48 pm

    These outfits are all so gorgeous! And I definitely like the idea of a round up rather than just a single outfit. It helps me take more inspiration away. Also, the more boxy button up shirts, like the first blue top, honestly elevate your look, making it far from boring!

      Thank you! I’m so glad you like the roundup concept and the button up shirts! They’ve been a favourite of mine this season! x

  37. September 20, 2018 / 9:09 pm

    You are killing it in every single one of these pics! Yes I love pastels, I think I am still going to try and wear pastel colours throughout winter, maybe not Autumn but Winter haha! I love the orange trousers, I think if you are going to wear bright colours, you need to go for a colour bottom and a plain white top! Moving on to white, I still have items of white clothing that I haven’t wore yet because I don’t want to spill anything on them! I love your monochrome dress! x

    • September 20, 2018 / 9:18 pm

      Aw thanks so much! I don’t blame you for wanting to incorporate pastels into Autumn too, they’re gorgeous aren’t they! Haha I’m so glad I’m not the only adult who is scared of the white! x

  38. September 21, 2018 / 1:41 pm

    Loving all your outfits! Esp. the black and white stripes dress x

    One of the reasons I wanted to lose weight is so I can wear more cute dresses lol. #prayformysuccessweightlossjourney
