My Week in Outfits!
Happy Wednesday gorgeous gals (and guys)! What a busy couple of weeks I have had. Blogging has taken a back seat to a few exciting ventures - a couple of really good dates (oo-er), new art classes and lots of yoga classes, it's all been go go go for me. Today's post is a sneak peak into my wardrobe as I show you my outfits of the week, an eclectic mix of high-street, vintage and casual styles.
Lady in Red:
This beautiful vintage dress cost me £10 from a charity shop and it's completely divine! Paired with a matte red lip, some victory rolls/ a cute chignon and some dainty drop earrings it just oozes class. C'est un look très classique et belle, sans doute!
This colourful, floral top is a recent purchase from The Yellow Shop - a vintage treasure trove in Bath. I adore the bold, retro colours and the unusual cut of the sleeves - not quite a vest and not quite a tshirt! Tucked into some high waisted mom jeans this outfit has a really arty, youthful feel to it. I paired it with a polka dot scrunch ur and a purple lip. My jeans are from the Beatnik Emporium - another vintage find from Southampton.
Sometimes the simplest combinations are the best! This Urban Outfitters jumper cost me £15 in the sale (nab it while you can!), paired with my skintight Topshop Joni Jeans and some nude pumps, a messy bun and bien sûr a bold red lip, le style Parisienne est intemporel. Throw on a beige trench coat and a Longchamp tote bag and you'll be ready to grace the streets of Paris in your casual-chic getup.
Back to Black:
I noticed recently that my black denim Topshop skirt had been thrown to the back of my wardrobe, unloved and neglected. So I pieced it together with a cute Asos crop top and black tights. My makeup is super natural too - I've been using my Garnier BB cream in shade light recently so a natural, light-coverage glow. Topshop's Whimsical on the lips gives a peachy pop and looks beautiful against the black top.
It's a Spring Thing:
I've started reaching for my playsuits more recently as we get further into Spring. I bought this bright number from Missguided last year for £15 in the sale, and it was sat hanging in my wardrobe for a whole year with the tag still on it! I think I was dubious of the colours because the combination is quite unusual but when I tried it on I realised how pretty it was. Some cute tights, loafers and drop earrings completed this feminine outfit. Très jolie je crois!
I continue to fan-girl over this shirt as one of my favourite ever wardrobe items! The colours are sooo beautiful and really bohemian. I picked this up in a Paris vintage shop on my year abroad and love pairing it with different jeans or leather skirts. I threw on my black Topshop Joni Jeans with some black tassled loafers to keep the rest of the outfit understated. I turned up to my life-drawing class feeling super creative in this get-up!
The look is 50% nerdy librarian and 50% gothic punk. The purple (near black) lippy from Topshop in shade Depth looks great with my blue asymmetric-hemmed blue velvet skirt (also Topshop). The deep colour looks black in some lights hence its charm. My polo neck top is from Urban Outfitters and is a go-to piece from smart-casual attire. Again, leather loafers look great with this look.
I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into my personal style - as you can see it really differs from day to day as I love experimenting with outfits from different eras.
