the beginnings of my summer wardrobe

although it is still winter for another week, and then there is all of spring, i have started to buy some clothing items for summer, so i decided i would share these with you..

from Big W, i bought the Lee Cooper Burnout Crop tee for $15. this shirt is from the kids section, so it is a size 16 (which is equivalent to a ladies 10)

it is a slightly cropped design (kids shirts are always more modest than ladies), and i simply adore the daisy detailing around the neck

next i bought myself a new watch, although my current/ old watch still worked and was relatively new. it had a glitter face, which was incredibly difficult to read, so i decided to upgrade to this ladies analog watch in rose gold and white for $15

next i went into cotton on. whenever i am looking for good basic T-shirts, i always end up here.
they have recently released a line of basics with Lara Bingle, and the shirts have such a flattering design, for a decent price!

from cotton on, i bought the rib texture over the knee socks in berry for $8

these are great for those outfits when black or navy long socks dont work. they add a nice pop of colour, and i actually wore them today with my 'a whole new world' skater dress by BMC

next, i bought the Ava rip high waist shorts in vintage blue for $35

it is always challenging trying to find denim shorts that are shorter than knee length, yet dont leave half of your bum cheeks hanging out (there doesnt seem to be anything in between). so whenever i spot a pair of shorts that look like a decent length, i always try them on. even more so when theyre high waisted, light denim, with rips, and frayed bottoms.
these shorts ticked all of those boxes, and they actually completely cover my bum, with fabric to spare!

i also bought the keira short sleeve v tee in carter blue/ white stripe for $20

this shirt is made of that super soft slinky fabric, and it is so very comfortable. it is also long enough that you can chuck it on over a pair of tights, and have your bum covered

i bought the 'the scoop' in adele stripe cloudy sky/ white for $15

this shirt is one of the ones from the Lara Bingle collaboration and it is the perfect basic. the shirt has a fitted cut without clinging or being uncomfortable. it also has a nice scoop neck that it not too high or too low

and lastly from cotton on, i bought the 'the deep v' in indigo navy for $15

this shirt is also from the Lara Bingle range, and has the same fit of the previous one.  however this one features a deep v neck, which makes it lower cut than the other, yet it is still modest enough that your boobs are not falling out

cotton on were also having a 30% off storewide sale, so everything about was 30% cheaper than listed, so overall i saved about $20 off the total.

lastly, i went into valley girl, and bought a few things
first up, i bought an infinity ring for $5, a diamante midi ring for $3, and some daisy hair ties for $7

i also spotted a white top with daisy detailing for $14. which i picked up immediately. i had been looking for one of these for a long while (all winter). i have seen similar with the trim along the bottom, but being a lover of high waisted things like i am, i wanted the daisies on the top

i am a sucker for paisley, and this dress made no exception. it is a loose skater/ smock style and it was $10

i didnt try this on before buying, and the sleeves are a little bit tight on my arms, but thats nothing i cant handle :)

and last, but not least, i bought a pale pink and black striped shift dress for $10

this dress is a gorgeous basic, and i can already see myself getting alot of wear out of it
