Jeans & a Nice Top?

I rarely ever dress up, attempting to look like a girl, so I had to make a post on my outfit deets (lol). Hopefully this will help you fellow gals who are told to dress up “smart caj” and wear “jeans a nice top”, without wanting to look like a year 7 :—)…

Where I wore this: 21st birthday dinner

OUTFIT DETAILS:

Coat – Brick Lane

Shirt – Pull & Bear

Jeans – ASOS/New Look (never thought they did peng jeans but these are my favourite kick flares and were only £20! They then went on sale for £12…. peak for me)

Boots – not sure robbed them from me Mum x

Choker – ASOS

Exploring The Saatchi Gallery in my 80s Red Bomber

This faux leather red bomber is soo dank. I’m loving the 80s vibe the jacket emits, paired with the retro, oversized black oval sunglasses. Both items from ASOS by the way! I matched this piece with an all black outfit because, as you can probably tell, I love a pop of colour. This outfit works particularly well – in my opinion – because the red jacket really appears to be the statement piece in this fit. The colour appears more vibrant amongst the black, but white would work well too.

I got a size 8 because, although the bomber is oversized anyway, I wanted it particularly big! Jess Woodley is a huge style inspiration of mine, and she pulls off a huge vintage black leather bomber so well.

Yooo, I saw the Ragged Priest Spring Summer ’17 drop in June (I think? Was time ago) and loved their new pink “Hustler” sweat. However, I was on ASOS adding stuff to my saved items list when I also came across the exact same sweat with a different slogan on instead. If you didn’t know, ASOS have free delivery over orders of £20 and student discount. In addition, I had collected enough points to get a £10 voucher; it made so much more sense to buy the sweat off there!

In love!!!!! It’s got my name written all over it (literally ;-)). Pink is my ting (and just about every other blogger’s lol) and I was so excited to style it in my own unique way.

I matched the sweat with a black distressed a-line denim skirt from Missguided, black fishnets and a black faux leather eyelet choker (also from Missguided). Oh, and some black Vans. I paired the garm with black because I really wanted the pop of colour to stand out in the photography. Sunnies are from Depop!

Shout out to my g Lily for helping me with the shoot. She is so sick, check out her Instagram: lilycraigenphotography 💯

Also, I’ve never actually owned something from Ragged Priest because it can be too much p for my minimal student funds. Honestly. Quality is amazing tho and the clothes are so unique, so I can see why they are able to charge a reasonable amount of money. Stock is limited and the garms are made with such care.

Anyway, enjoy! And don’t forget to follow my social media:

A Pop of Colour

Hellooooo – here are photos of my most recent purchases from Urban Outfitters, matched with (finally) a new tee from Stussy’s SS17 new stuff. I tucked the tee in to the high-waisted mini skirt and threw on some fishnets to finish off the look.

There was a yellow denim skirt from Topshop which I had my eye on for ages, but they never had my size in stock, so I found this lime-coloured skirt, with a cute white stitch, which I ended up loving even more – so I had to buy it! (there’s me trying to justify purchases with white stitching… okurrrr b)

I had also been searching for a red mini backpack for ages, and I couldn’t find one apart from a vintage one which was selling on Depop. However, I was reluctant to buy it because I was determined to try it on with an outfit before buying, when I came across this one from Urban Outfitters. Dickies is such a good quality brand and very affordable – I love it eeee.

Thanks for reading!

Ellesse meets Adidas

Looooook at Ellesse’s new drop on ASOS – their mint green velour (or velvet, whatever you prefer) t-shirt is now mine, alongside Adidas’ new iconic black bottoms in the form of wide legs trousers. They’re a dream.

I’ve needed to find some new t-shirts for a while now but I have been reluctant to spend £40 on a new Stussy or Polar t-shirt, so when I found this Ellesse tee for £25 I knew it was gonna be mine. Yummmmm.

Also, I live in black trousers. I had been meaning to find some cool sportswear ones for a while and then I also clocked Adidas had a new drop of these on ASOS, they were also mine – obviously leaving me with no money, therefore no way to live at university. Oh welllll.

Black Adidas

Recently I got a couple of new sweats which I adore so I’ve decided to start a series on them, showing you how I style my Winter Wardrobe. 

This black high-neck Adidas sweatshirt is new in Urban Outfitters, costing me £50 (£45 with student discount). Sounds like a lot of p for a poor student like myself, but I know that copping this garm means I’ve got it for many years and it can be sold for a smashing re-sale price too. Sportswear brands always re-sale for the same price if not more in a couple of months/years! Plus it’s a soft cotton/fleece material inside meaning it’s gonna keep me warm for daaaays. It’s love ❤

What I’m wearing: (also relatively new stuff)

  • Flared Trousers: Bershka
  • Trainers: Nike TN’s
  • Long Puffer Coat: New Look/ASOS
  • Earrings: ASOS

ASOS Jumpsuit

I bought this jumpsuit (in the style of culottes) from ASOS and figured it can also be worn with any cardigan or jumper. This way you make the most out of your money; the bottoms look like a single pair of trousers/culottes (or whatever you choose to wear) styled with any top you like.

In my opinion, these are a great option for Spring/Summer in the UK since it isn’t the warmest but they’re still going to let your body breathe!
