I wasn’t amazed by the Topshop online sale, but there are always so many more treats in store! I was torn between a few items in the Manchester store sale, but settled on these silk joggers by Topshop Boutique. They were reduced to £40 from £70, so £36 with student discount and I had a £10 voucher, so at £26 they were a pretty good deal! They’re one of the comfiest items I own, and they fall beautifully and can be dressed up or down easily. The Topshop Boutique range is generally a little overpriced in my opinion, but it’s always my favourite section of Topshop and I’m a sucker for anything silk.
Here I’m wearing my new trousers with a batwing cropped chiffon blouse from SheInside, ASOS ID necklace, Zara mini shopper and Jeffrey Campbell Jett boots which I got on eBay.
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!
I recently received this gorgeous belted trench coat with faux leather sleeves courtesy of the wonderful Jovonna London and couldn’t wait to wear it! The ‘Deborah Trench‘ is reminiscent of the highly sought-after leather sleeved trench worn by the likes of Emma Watson, but at £85 is only a fraction of the price and is still just as chic. Worn buttoned and belted or open, its clean-cut shape and classic colours and textures mean that the Deborah Trench instantly adds class and elegance to any outfit. Here I’m wearing it with another new addition to my wardrobe: an American Apparel oversized chiffon shirt in a super bright neon shade which I bought with a 30% discount code and my faux leather pleated skirt from Primark. I finished off the look with heels with stud detailing from Dorothy Perkins and a Céline look-a-like bag from VJ Style.
Pastel colours are always perfect for spring and summer, and this year I’ve become particularly obsessed with them! Here I’ve gone a little overboard with colour-blocking pastels, using a neutral grey blazer to tone down the outfit and make it more wearable.
I received this beautiful American Apparel double layer chiffon maxi skirt in the post today, courtesy of the ASOS sale and costing me a grand total for £4 thanks to the lovely people at Vice! The colour is perfect and who doesn’t love a bargain. Here I paired it with a fringed bodysuit, originally Topshop, which I got from a discount store called Steals years ago. I’ll also definitely be wearing it with my black velvet bodysuit or a button-up shirt and black creepers, and in the summer a loose white vest.
