OOTD: (cute as a) button 70's skirt.
Today's outfit of the day is a little bit 90's kid meets 70's button skirt meets sassy cowgirl. But hey, an amalgamation of different looks and styles can make the greatest outfits of all time!
Arguably the most eyecatching piece of the outfit is my Missguided tassel jacket which I fell head over heels in love with as soon as it was released earlier this year in the site's Spring/Summer collection. It was previously featured in my Missguided mini haul post and has been loved ever since it found its way into my wardrobe. I think I paid about £45 for it, though am eager for the Autumn weather to come around as the material actually makes you feel like you're roasting alive when you wear it on a scorching day... so I've been keeping it for best and wearing it sparingly this summer.
The material is so gorgeously soft and lightweight that it was great to sling over the top of my turtle neck ASOS crop top for this cloudy but muggy day. Turtle necks always look very classy and smart and the cropped cut of the top complements the high waisted fit of this black denim Topshop skirt (£28 currently in stores). The Asymmetrical style gives the illusion of a smaller waist and a curvier booty, whilst the high waisted fit makes my legs look longer.
I wanted to invest in a day to night skirt that would be hard wearing and go with everything and this one can also double up as workwear for me. As there is no stretch in the material I would advise going a size up (I am usually a size 6-8 as I have a small waist but bought the skirt in a size 8 which is a flattering and comfortable fit - aka if I wore it out for cocktails I wouldn't be struggling for breath a couple of mojitos down...)
I bought my leopard print Underground creepers a couple of years ago for £30 down from £90 in the office sale. My velvet scrunchie came in a pack of three for approximately £1 in New Look and is great as it's thinner than the conventional fat scrunchie and so doesn't swamp my fine hair! The bag is the perfect size for essentials as was purchased from H&M when I was on the prowl for a sturdy zip up night out bag.
Keep a close eye out for my next blog post which will give you more of a glimpse into the stunning location today's OOTD was photographed in - c'est très charmant.
