British Summer Clothing Haul | Topshop, New Look & Primark

We haven't had much of a summer here in Scotland this year. The weather has been so terrible that there hasn't been an opportunity to simply wear shorts and a t-shirt outside yet. My 'summer' wardrobe this year has consisted of items I wore in the spring time minus the layering, so over the past couple of months, I acquired a few more summery pieces to show you today.


I was on the hunt for a light cover up for slightly cooler evenings and found a pink kimono in the sale section of New Look. I'm not a huge fan of pink when it comes to clothing items, but I actually really love how this looks on. It's very light and adds an extra something to a simple outfit. I've been wearing this with a basic white t-shirt, jeans and boots.


I've been lacking nice evening wear in my wardrobes, so I decided to pick up this white shirt from Topshop. The fit is really nice, slightly on the baggy side, but looks great paired with skinny jeans. I was a bit worried it would make me look like I was wearing a school shirt, but it's a completely different material and I'm looking forward to wearing it on special evening occasions.

I finally got my hands on a pair of black slim leg dungarees from Topshop last week. Every time I went into the store, they were always sold out or didn't have my size. I tried on the size 6 in store and they were quite big around the waist, so I ordered a pair in a size 4 on line. They are still fairly big on me, but I'm in love with them regardless!

After living in hooded tops for the majority of this year, I thought I'd pick up a cardigan instead. Topshop are currently selling this cardigan in green and grey. It's really cosy and I've been loving wearing it to lounge around in and also wearing it out paired with jeans and a black crop top.



I rarely go into Primark nowadays. There hasn't been a lot in there recently that has caught my eye and I'd much rather pay a bit extra for something of better quality and will last longer in H&M or New Look. However, I came across some basic t-shirts I fell in love with and pretty much almost bought them in every colour. They are slightly cropped and have a tight fit. I can't remember how much they were exactly, but they were incredibly cheap and ranged between £2-£3.50.

What has been your staple summer outfit this year?
