Today’s outfit is (I like to think) a good way of working the military trend without the harsh silhouettes which are sometimes hard to pull off, especially for the day time. I was pretty excited to see this cardigan in Primark for £14 after lusting over the almost identical Topshop version which is £34 more expensive! I’m also wearing my amaaazing new Agyness Deyn x Dr Martens 1490 boots. Check out more images and info about my Primark ‘mini haul’ below.
In recent years I’ve become a bit of a trainer fiend, and although my beloved kicks don’t get much coverage on this blog I just had to post about my latest addition! The Nike Roshe Run Premium Digi Camo, an amazing women’s release which dropped on the Wellgosh store just the other day. The digi camo print is (obviously) amazing and the use of the port wine colour for the swoosh, stitching and the laces is a really nice touch, and Roshe is the most comfortable trainer I’ve ever worn! If you’re a UK size 4 then Wellgosh still have a few pairs left in your size here (at the time of this post), but don’t sleep on it because they’ll all be gone soon. Here I’m wearing them with a simple grey t-shirt dress from Topshop, a silver arm cuff I’ve had for years, sunglasses from Primark and a studded skinny belt from ASOS.
I recently won this gorgeous vintage bralet from eBay for £4.99 and I’ve been so excited to wear it! It’s a beautiful velvet fabric with simple silver and pearl coloured embellishment on each of the cups. This evening I paired it with a chiffon maxi skirt from American Apparel, House of Holland fishnet socks from Tights Please, Underground creepers and an Urban Outfitters camo jacket for a dressed down / dressed up look for a friend’s birthday gathering. The colours aren’t very summery considering the fact that it’s July at the moment, however neither is the weather!
We had a much warmer day today in North West England, but it’s still not summer so layering is key! I wore a white button-up shirt and faux leather pleated skirt (Primark) underneath an oversized black chunky knit jumper (Primark) and my Urban Renewal camo jacket (Urban Outfitters), finished off with black tights, an animal print scarf and black creepers.
I’ve also dyed my hair a brighter copper/ginger colour and finally got rid of the remnants of my dip-dye (although you can still see some evidence of it if you look closely!). What do you think?

I’ll be going out for a friend’s 21st tomorrow night, and I’m going to wear this! I still love this £3.99 striped dress which I got from H&M over a year ago, such a great buy.
Guys have it easy, menswear is so comfortable! Here’s one of my takes on it, featuring a DIY camo pocket shirt (inspired by Tantum, which I decided months ago that I was going make and finally got round to sewing together) which was so easy to do, and is an effective way of making a plain t-shirt more exciting. A leopard print pocket on a black t-shirt is my next mini-project! I’m also wearing slim fit black trousers from River Island rolled up at the ankle, with my favourite Nike SB Stefan Janoski trainers. I bought this Penfield hat for my little brother for his birthday, and it’s too nice for me to not steal once in a while.
What do you think? Do you like dressing a bit like a boy every now and again?
