Top, Pink Pastel Biker & White Rucksack - Primark | Jeans & Sliders - Matalan  

For those of you who follow my instagram (here!) you'll know that I'm super pleased with this little find. I'd had my heart set on the pastel pink biker from Zara from the minute I laid eyes on it. At the time, I thought it was a bit crazy to pay the price for such a heavy jacket given the fact Summer was approaching & I didn't know what our Glasgow weather had in store. It's safe to say I'm happy that I did leave it since I found this beautiful lil number in Primark at a fraction of the price! It's a great dupe in terms of the colour and the stitching detail however the Zara one is collarless which to be honest I'm not as big a fan of so this was such a winning buy. Even though it's PU, it's really soft so there's no squeaking from the arms when walking around. 

I'm loving ripped jeans just now - they're so chic & summery! Admittedly I have been grudging buying a pair of ripped knee denims because I have plenty of pairs at home that could do with a make-over anyway. This was a last minute effort when I literally just took a pair of scissors and snipped away. If you're looking to achieve this look then note that you should cut straight across but then take away a little material too, this will help to show some more skin. Simply pick the edge to fray it & you're look is complete! 

I've co-ordinated my favourite white sliders & this beautiful white backpack to keep the look fresh and bright. This is probably going to be a wardrobe staple for me this summer because I can fit sooo much in it - including my camera which is perfect. It's a pity I can't fit that my gorgeous wee Lola in it, she's always such a poser when I'm snapping my blog pictures - couldn't resist posting it!

What do you think of this look? Have you got a good Summer dupe you'd like to share?
