The calm before the storm...

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

While the south of England enjoys a heat wave the rest of the UK and Ireland are left to grumble and complain about the constant cool temperatures and never ending rain. These photos were taken in a rare few minutes of sunshine before the on set of two days of non stop rain. 
I just love the light fabric of this jumpsuit so Ive been layering cropped knits, waistbelts & lace collars over the top to create different looks and still be warm!

Jumper: H&M, Lace Collar: c/o Romwe, Jumpsuit: H&M, Belt: Asos, Chain clutch: Limited Editon M&S, Pumps: M&S. Apple Necklace: cant rem where its from!

Unfortunately since these photos I have managed to wash the jumpsuit at 30 degrees may I add & yet it still shrunk! Boo..I dont seem to have much look with H&M all in ones, like I mentioned in this post way back in summer 2010.

  21. Aww I love this, it's such a cute outfit.

    I find most of the stuff I buy from H&M shrinks in the wash - it's so annoying because I really like most of the clothes from there! It's such a shame.

    I think I have that same H&M jumper but in mustard - luckily that hasn't shrunk in the wash! Yours looks really lovely with the collar, may have to get one to go with mine.
