OOTD: A Day in the Sun

OOTD: A Day in the Sun

Last week, Aberdeen actually had some great weather for a change so I had to make the most of it while I could.

Prior, I had worked a draining nine hour shift at work and having started at 5am, all I wanted to do after work was sleep but I’m glad I pushed myself through the tiredness as I had a lovely day catching up with my close friend, Ryan.

We decided to take a walk to a nearby park by the river. We’re so lucky to live close to such a lovely place.


After a long day, I wanted to throw on something quick and comfortable so this is what I chose to wear.

Top – This ribbed high neck top is from Primark. Although I’m not sure of the exact price, I’d say it was roughly £4. An absolute steal! There was a range of colours and is exactly what I need for my summer wardrobe. Cheap pieces like this are perfect for taking on holiday and it won’t matter if you ruin it with suncream.

Jeans – These are cropped Leigh jeans in a light denim  from Topshop. These are a staple for my spring/summer look. They are mid-rise which is not a style I tend to wear anymore but I will never not love these jeans. I have had these for several years so unfortunately Topshop no longer sell this exact pair. However, these are the same style in a slightly different denim. You can pick these up for £38.

Bag – I’ve spoken about this Karl Lagerfeld bag in previous posts. If you want to know where I got it, you can find out here.


Shoes – These slip-ons are from Matalan. . When these came back in fashion last year, I jumped right on board. Did anyone else live in checkerboard slip-on Vans? Throwback to my 15 year old self.  This pair has a crocodile pattern and are very comfortable. Instead of forking out £52 for a pair of Vans, why not pick these up here for only £10. You can also purchase these in a nude pink.  

After a lot of photo taking, we decided to have a little fun cartwheeling and doing handstands. I felt like a kid again. 

…even though I’m not quite as good as I used to be.

If my spring/summer is anything like my day in the sun with Ryan, then I am in for a great time.

Do you have any spring/summer staples?

Thanks for reading,
