Yet another sheer paneling piece: this time it’s a white cropped vest from Select, which is a total steal at £6! The black version is even more of a bargain on sale for £4. White and black crop tops are an essential part of my wardrobe, and the sheer panel in this one gives it a little bit of an edge which I love. Here I’m wearing it with my Zara style black skort from Romwe, an old oversized and asymmetric sheer black shirt by Sparkle & Fade from Urban Outfitters (a great alternative cover-up to the very ‘in’ sheer kimono) and black and white Nike Roshe Runs. I’m carrying a new bag from Primark, the colour of which I love and at £12 it’s great value for such a large bag – it is easily big enough to be an overnight or weekend bag.

Not much to say about this super casual outfit – all black is always a safe bet! I’m wearing my new croc effect leather trousers from MissGuided with an old Rottweiler print t-shirt (Givenchy but not quite) from Urban Outfitters and a pair of Air Max 1s with a similar colourway to my t-shirt.
I’ve been after a pair of leather trousers for a while, and this pair from MissGuided are great! They’re faux leather, and I didn’t find them to be too sweaty to wear. They are very tight and don’t have much stretch in them, so I would recommend sizing up if you’re between sizes, but other than that are a great alternative to jeans or leggings for day or evening!
Blue is a colour which I never used to be drawn to, but clearly that has changed! This outfit, which I wore at the weekend, is entirely blue – I love this shirt from Primark (another great Primark piece which doesn’t look like it’s from Primark!), slightly cropped and tailored dark navy trousers from JW Anderson’s first collection for Topshop (which I got in the sale for £20), my super cosy vintage jumper from Retrograde* and of course my super cute Liberty print Free Run 2s, which were a birthday present from my boyfriend last year. You might remember I worked with Retrograde a while ago as a model, but the brand is still going strong and acquiring more and more great men’s and women’s vintage stock (including more cosy knitwear like this jumper) at totally reasonable prices, and with free UK delivery which is always a selling point for me – Topshop online would have a lot more of my money if they didn’t charge £4!
Despite my looming exams (first one is tomorrow, wish me luck!!) I’ve still found a million ways to distract myself, one of them of course being taking photos of everything I do for Instagram. Last week, Monday-Sunday consisted of:
Amazing ASOS rings | new Infrareds from my boyfriend | #ootd (Topshop skirt, American Apparel blouse, Primark coat, Romwe shoes) | cute Marc By Marc Jacobs bracelet I won on eBay | amazing £8 shoes from New Look | jewellery and perfume section of my shelves | #nails (Models Own Gold Rush and Soda Pop Pink) | a photo of me | delicious lunch | more amazing ASOS rings | Harry Potter mug which is around 10 years old | my wall full of revision notes | #ootd (Romwe jacket, Primark jumper, Sparkle & Fade blouse, Cheap Monday jeans, Jordan 4s, The Quiet Riot bag) | my Jordans | new Totem Styler from Enrapture* (blog post soon) | pretty dresses from MeeMee* (blog post here) and Motel* (blog post soon) | another Marc By Marc Jacobs braclet I won on eBay | hot chocolate with cream and chocolate orange sprinkles | the collar detail of my Sister Jane dress from MeeMee | Krispy Kreme doughnuts
