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:

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!
