Favourite Summer Outfits

I’m not much of a fashion blogger, but I would be lying if I said I’d never thought about including a fashion tab at the top of my blog. Something about fashion posts have always made me feel materialistic and shallow, but the more I think about it, the more I think we can outwardly…
