I'm a big fan of wearing denim shorts in the summer, so when I spotted these black acid wash hotpants on the Missguided website I just had to have them! I love the grey wash effect of the shorts and they are such an easy colour to wear. The added frayed edges give the shorts such an edgy look and, for me, these amazing shorts really are a must have for my wardrobe! I love the combination of acid wash shorts and a simple, plain black boob tube because it's complementing, yet it doesn't distract attention from the amazing shorts.

I decided to style the shorts with my American Apparel knee high striped socks, my new Vans 106's and a Vans backpack! Vans have always had their place in my wardrobe ever since being a teen and I don't think my love for the brand will be going amiss anytime soon! I decided to buy myself a pair of the 106 Vulcanized Tile Blue/ True White shoes as they are a perfect summer colour, plus I needed a new pair of Vans ( well, doesn't everyone?) Oh and lets not forget the mustard Vans rucksack/ handbag! This was actually a gift for my 21st Birthday from my lovely boyfriend and it's definitely one of my top 3 favourite bags! I love the functionality of it and there are so many pockets and zips and clasps and I... I just love it! The best thing about the bag is that you can unclip the backpack straps or the handbag handles so you can wear the bag either way to match different outfits!

I think this outfit would be perfect for a festival! What do you think?

So here it is, my first Outfit post! Hooray! 
Seeing as its summer (well, supposed to be summer!), I really wanted this post to be bright and colourful and I thought no better way to show it than this gorgeous blue and white lace tunic. I love it! Its elegant but easy to wear without feeling too dressed up. The tunic is my usual size UK 6. The only down side of the tunic is that I find the waistband is a little bit loose but that can be fixed with a belt! The belt I'm wearing here is just a simple brown belt which actually came as part of a different outfit but it works really well with the bright blue tones. I came across a bargain with the brown shoes from River Island - ONLY £15!! The heel is a perfect size for everyday wear and they are so comfy that I even wear them for work! Both rings cost under £5, and although cheap and cheerful they really compliment the outfit.  

Hello Sunshine!

Hello and welcome to the first post of Hello Sunshine!

After months and months of reading through so many lovely blogs I have finally decided to join in myself. A huge part of my life is dedicated to fashion and beauty products. I’m really excited about sharing with you all my reviews, outfits, wish lists and key fashion and beauty trends along the way! I really hope you enjoy reading my blog as much as I will enjoy making it! 

I guess it’s taken me a while because I just didn’t really know where to start. So this is the start, the start of something beautiful..
