White + Wild in the West | Summer Fashion Part 2

"I am not a psychopath, I am a high-functioning sociopath, do you research!" - Sherlock, my recent obsession.

This enjoyable, past fortnight spent here in Connemara has gone by like a blur, and during, the weather has been pretty miraculous still. This summer probably has been the hottest summer ever in Ireland. And yet another thing hard to believe; school starts in less than a month. Time really does slip through your fingers, the metaphorical reasoning behind my absence. I have lots of content on its way, including an exciting project I'm taking part in!
This is the second installment to my summer fashion series (you can see the first part here). I have one more coming soon which will mark the end of summer. I hope you're all liking the outfits!

Jeans: Bershka
Shoes: Converse
Watch: Chronostar
Hairband: Penney's/Primark

Just like the shorts in the first part of my summer fashion series, this pair of jeans can be useful for styling crop tops with. Also, the Los Angeles top is too hipster to deal with. I'm lucky to say I went to L.A. a few years ago with my family, but then I wasn't into being tumblr and just wore bucket hats and was awestruck by American Girl doll shops. If I was there now I would be skating on a penny-board to the beach sipping ice cold water wearing this exact outfit. #swag

Top: Hollister
Shorts: Forever 21
Shoes: Superdry

Yellow Top: Tour De Bog
Runners: Nike

On the 7th of August, the Tour De Bog charity race took place. This race is about 40 km long in total, starts in small village Roundstone and ends there. Most participants don't race, but cycle for achievement. I cycled from Ballyconeely to Roundstone, which people estimate to be a good 30 km, and I'm very proud! Above with my very red faced self is my dad's very encouraging cousin. My legs were burning, in that good way, by the end but it was worth it as my dad's cousin treated me to some Dairy Milk chocolate! Oh happy days...
For the cycling, I knew I had to wear something that was comfortable for sitting on a bike seat and peddling for a long length of time. These shorts did justice, and I wore the event's t-shirt for the race. Before and after, the beachy top and blue slip-ons were an ideal and quick change for a casual laid-back look.

Sunglasses: a shop in Portugal 
Top: Hollister
Trousers: T.K. Maxx
Necklace: Forever 21
Bag: Paul's Boutique
Sandals: local shoe shop
Nail Polish: Rimmel London

As a lend from the sister, I wore this stylish pair of parachute pants feeling incredibly boho. Adding the frilly top and statement necklace and bag balances the look with glamour chic.
What bothers me about this gorgeous bag by Paul's Boutique is that I'm still not sure what to put in it and where to bring it.  At least I know how to style it! Any tips for me?

Make sure to look out for the next Summer Fashion look book! I hope these outfits gave you some inspiration or ideas on how to style your outfits this summer.
