Shirt - River Island (old) | Culottes - Mango via ASOS | Nikes - JDSports | Belt - H&M | Sunglasses - ASOS
I bought this shirt ageeessss ago in the River Island sale for only £10. I was almost about to put it in the charity bag because I'd never got a chance to wear it but it's just too nice to give up. I also picked up these culottes in the ASOS sale and I'm so happy I got them finally! I wasn't too sure on the whole culottes thing with me being short and all but they are super comfy and a great minimalist item to add to my wardrobe.
I'm surprisingly looking forward to autumn/winter. The weather is just so unpredictable recently and quite warm for it being September. Nights are getting darker quicker now too so I'm going to have to think even further ahead for my outfit posts come winter!
I've been super busy these past couple weeks and have the dentist this week for a check up which I can't be pooped with *sigh* but in the mean time check out my Instagram & Twitter to keep updated on my goings on!
So if you have read my previous posts you will know that I am on a shopping ban. No harm in a bit of online browsing though right? Although my ASOS wishlist seems to be increasing by the day....
With winter ever approaching I'm gravitating towards my autumn/winter pieces and looking for some new additions. I'm obsessed with maxi and oversized jumpers and cardigans. I never thought I could get away wearing them since I'm only 5ft4 but if the Olsen twins can then I can too! I've been on the look out for some really nice winter boots. I have too many pairs of shoes but none that are like these ones from Public Desire. They're great for those days when you just want to be that little bit more smart and look more expensive than they actually are (£27 bargain!)
Hope you are all having a good start to the week. If you've been following my blog for a while you'll notice that I had a lovely new blog header! I'm really pleased with it and makes my blog look a lot neater now I must say!
Sunglasses - ASOS | Tank Top - ASOS | Trousers - ASOS (sale) | Jumper - Illustrated People | Nikes - JD Sports | Bag - H&M
So I think I've been doing pretty well with my shopping ban! I've just been concentrating on how I'm going to redecorate my room and been gathering lots of bits and pieces up on my watch list on eBay!
It was my friends birthday a couple weeks ago so I stopped by ASOS to pick him up some gifts. I had these white trousers saved in my wishlist and they were reduced in the sale so I thought I might as well pick them up! They are so comfy and very much a straight cut so perfect for that effortless style. I wasn't quite sure about 'all white' on me as I'm a bit paranoid I'll get something marked and ruin it but alas, that is the risk you have to take with wearing white! I also picked up this cute jumper from the Illustrated People sale. I love this brand and this jumper is the perfect addition to my monochrome side of my wardrobe. You also can't beat a bit of Mean Girls!
Jumpsuit - New Look // Maxi Shirt - Choies // Belt - H&M // Slip Ons - ASOS (sale) // Necklaces - H&M & Shop Dixi
I'm currently on a clothes shopping ban and trying to use the clothes I've already got and not worn in an effort to save my pennies over the next few months. So while sifting through my wardrobe trying to think of something to wear I found this awesome jumpsuit I picked up from New Look a while ago. I always find jumpsuits on me just don't sit right (short people problems) but this jumpsuit fits like a glove! The waist sits just right and the neckline is really flattering, such a great staple to any wardrobe!
I've been dying to wear my cute dalmatian spot slip ons from the ASOS sale. They're super comfy but can't imagine how much more comfy they'll be when they're worn in.
I also love this maxi checked shirt I bought off Choies. I love to use maxi shirts kind of like kimono's just to throw on over outfits when it's not too cold. They also give a smart casual vibe to your outfit and it also adds a bit of colour to any monochrome piece.
