I’m in love my gorgeous new peplum style top by River Island which I bought from ASOS – it’s really flattering and completely versatile, it could be dressed down with some high waisted jeans or dressed up with a pencil skirt and heels! Here I’ve paired the top with a neon pencil skirt from ASOS and some nude and neon shoes from H&M.
I also added an orange lipstick (MAC Morange) and nail varnish in the same shade (‘Stellar’ by Technic, available at Bodycare) to contrast with the neon yellow/green of the skirt.
Almost every girl loves mermaids and the SS12 trend for all things underwater-fantasy is the perfect opportunity to channel your inner Ariel. I’ve been in love with this Topshop Premium Silk Shimmer Pleated Dip Hem Skirt since it first came to my attention but at £65 I chose not to buy it. Luckily for me it’s now in the sale for £35 or £30 for petite and tall versions (I’m wearing petite), so I jumped at the chance! The skirt is 65% silk and 35% metallic fibre and so feels very luxurious as well as looking ultra girly and pretty. Here I’ve paired it with an equally feminine mint green sheer blouse bought years ago in Primark and some nude heels from Garage, but I also can’t wait to wear it a black button-up or white crop tee and black leather biker jacket to toughen it up a little too!
Although I’m not religious, for lent this year I gave up buying clothes. However, this has resulted in an influx in the number of shoes I own! The latest addition to my collection are these fabulous lace-up flats from H&M. The combination of the main nude colour and the neon yellow laces and soles completely won me over and I had to have them. At £30 they’re not a huge steal, however I don’t think that they’re overpriced either. I can’t wait to wear them!
