necklace: Topshop

This weekend, I made the hour long trip to my nearest Zara just to purchase these trousers after spying them during a recent trip to Covent Garden. I hadn't been able to buy them there sadly, as I had a train to catch and only noticed them as I was leaving. It was a love-at-first-sight thing (You know how it is). They are so comfortable and fit amazingly well; in my opinion, it was a journey well deserving. Plus, they're my last summer purchase as I'm now saving my money for the trips I'm taking over the next two months.

I will openly admit that on days when I just can't be bothered, I typically dress pretty terribly. I'm all for tracksuit bottoms, oversized hoodies and slippers. However, with such muggy weather lately - my favoured comfort clothes are unbearable to wear so I've had to find a way to incorporate my laziness into my summer wardrobe.

Today I wore one of the few pairs of shorts I own (something I need to stock up on). I picked up this corduroy American Apparel pair at an outlet store around two summers ago now and they remain the only American Apparel item I own to date. I always find the stores a little overwhelming and end up walking out with nothing; I'm not really much of a hunter when it comes to shopping - I prefer to go in, get what I want and leave.

With a week left of exam leave and three exams still to sit, I'm spending most of my time revising of late so in the spirit of lazy indoor days, I threw on a cropped sweater and was done with it. Sometimes crop tops don't always strike my fancy, but this one not being too shortly cropped and not overly fussy suits me fine.
