I have noticed that more and more crochet items are ending up in my wardrobe, so I decided to feature a couple of them in a post! I realise that the items shown are very summery and it will be very unlikely that I will get to wear them here in Scotland this “summer” … however they are great for taking abroad and might give you some inspiration for any holidays of your own!
Most of the crochet pieces I have are white or cream therefore they are very easy to wear with patterns/colours and also look great with a tan!
The lilac shorts I styled with the top are from Pull & Bear. I wore this outfit a few times on holiday during the day – I thought it looked nice and simple with a pair of gold sandals. I got the shorts last week and will be taking them with me when I go to Spain in September, fingers crossed we’ll have some sunny days and I might even get to wear them here too! I would wear them with a basic vest top as I think I would want the shorts to stand out.
Both the crop top and shorts were purchased at a very low price from independent eBay retailers and as you can see the detail is amazing! I definitely recommend a quick eBay search for items you know you want to purchase as you will be surprised! Some people think that eBay is just for second-hand things, but everything I have bought is brand new. A lot of people are now using it as a sort of business platform where they buy goods from China and can then sell them on at a very discounted price. These shorts are nearly identical to ones currently in Topshop which are on sale for £25 and probably of the same quality!
