WOW, Another scorcher this week here in England. It is so unusual for it to be this sunny and for this long in the UK, I'm used to summer only lasting for a few days! I'm starting to struggle with what to wear. I'm not used to dressing for the heat for this amount of time, and I'm running out of outfit ideas! 

I would say that summer is probably the season that I struggle the most to dress for as I'm usually all about those layers, hats and long sleeved tops. So I thought I would change the way I approach putting an outfit together. Normally I would have a particular item of clothing in mind that I'd use to base my entire look around. This week however I have used this beautiful 'Love by the moon' necklace I was sent from Desideratum Uk instead. 

Accessories can sometimes be a bit of an after thought and used as a way to finish off a look rather than begin one. So I thought it would be a cool idea and make me think a bit differently about how I put together an outfit using an accessory as a key piece. 

When I first saw this necklace I got major 90s vibes. The sun and moon print were so popular back then and I love that it's coming back, you all know that I'm a sucker for a bit of 90s nostalgia! The design of the moon instantly made me think of Sabrina the Teenage Witch, it was one of my favourite series growing up and really influenced my style, even now 22 years later on.

So for this look I knew I wanted to go for a witchy vibe. I was immediately drawn to this sheer, floaty shirt I found a while back in a charity shop for £1.39, it was an absolute bargain! I love this shirt so much it's extremely versatile and can be worn on top of pretty much anything. It's perfect for the summer as it is light, loose fitting and protects your skin from direct sunlight.

Under the shirt I'm wearing my current go to co-ord. These two pieces are firm favourites this summer, they're so comfy and can be easily dressed up or down. You can't beat a good basic!

I then finished off this look with my 90s inspired sunglasses, the 'AMY STARDUST' boots and these beautiful Zodiac earrings also from Desideratum UK. I don't usually wear many earrings due to my stretched ear so I love that I can actually wear these ones through my tunnel! Go check out their site here for some gorgeous, affordable, handmade jewellery.

This weeks look is definitely channeling some 90s nostalgia, it's one of my favourite decades to take inspiration from!

Where do you get your inspiration from when putting together an outfit?
