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

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)

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.

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.

Stussy Staple

These photos are taken from tiiiiime ago but I forgot to make a post on this shoot! Oops. Here are some photos of my staple Stussy t-shirt; my go-to outfit is a tee and jeans or baggy trousers so this is literally all I wear to uni and when I’m out and about. I enjoy dressing like a boy, it’s so easy…

Teddy Bear Fit

As promised, I said I would continue with a sweatshirt series and here’s the new addition! Yum yum new garm from Topshop; found it in the branded section called “Glamourous” online. I was torn between this brown Teddy Bear coloured sweat or the pale, off-white colour! I couldn’t buy both so I figured this brown would look cleaner for longer.

I love it – it’s soo warm and cosy! I got a size Medium because I love an oversized fit jumper.

Unfortunately I can’t find the original link but here is the white and a new grey colour I’ve just found since last looking at Topshop’s site:

I think this item will last me for ages – it’s a timeless piece and a comfy sweat will never go out of fashion. If I wanted to sell it on my Depop page, I can imagine that the re-sale price would be the same as the original (if not, more) because these Teddy Bear fabrics are so in at the moment. Ever since H&M came out with that classic Teddy Bear jacket which went out of stock so quickly, I have seen people selling their’s on eBay and Depop for £100 when it was bought at around £35 in store and online. Madness!

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

Defected Store Collaboration

I’ve teamed up with Defected Store – the clothing/merchandise line for Defected Records – to bring you guys some of their clothes, accessories and albums. When they kindly asked me to pick out some garms and items, these are the ones which stood out the most…

I chose the men’s items, purely because I prefer an oversized fit. However, there is also the choice to buy women’s if you prefer a smaller fit! You can see I have tucked in my sweatshirt and tshirts; although you don’t need to do this. I just thought it looked most flattering with mom jeans and cigarette pants.
