I felt like injecting a little more fashion into my blog and because I buy quite a lot of clothes, I thought it was about time I started sharing it with you all. I really like posts like this, I love to see how different people style different pieces up. I haven't bought all of these items at once, this is over quite a few months. Also, I will link anything that I can find and try and find the prices. This is my personal style and I know it won't be to everyone's taste but I hope you enjoy.
Topshop Boots - Old
Necklace - Old
I saw this and fell in love instantly. I've really been into leaves and Hawaiian print recently for some reason. I love rocking it up with some chunky black boots from Topshop and a leather jacket on those chilly nights. It also looks great with tights and dolly shoes. The back is actually really pretty too, it's quite low and strappy which I think would be perfect to throw over a bikini too. I'm actually going on holiday soon and will definitely be taking this with me!
Chunky Boots from Depop - £10
Burgundy Skull Scarf from Ebay - £3
I actually saw this dress on one of my friends and the print looked amazing. I thought it was quite unusual and really eye catching. I paired this dress with a burgundy skull scarf because I thought the burgundy and the chain print looked really nice together. I then threw some chunky black boots on which are new too. I really fancied some which were a bit like the Jeffrey Campbell Forks Boots but a lot cheaper. I like a heeled boot for everyday, they're comfy and give me a little extra height which I need. They have a zip up the side so never need to undo the laces which is a massive bonus. However, they are slighty too heavy for the weather at the moment so I've just been saving from for rainy days. I think this dress would actually look really cute with some strappy simple heels too for a more feminine take.
I always like to pair up grungey pieces with something much more feminine as a really interesting contrast. If you're a little worried about mixing textures then go for pieces that are the same colour. It makes it more much subtle but gives a little more dimension to an all black outfit. This bralet is from Topshop, I love the way the lace just peaks out from under the fishnet details on the swing dress. The swing dress is quite short so I always wear something underneath it like a little skirt just so I'm not flashing my bum to the world.
Next up is my graduation outfit! I wanted something classy and flattering, something that I feel really comfortable in and not that I have to keep adjusting and rearranging. I picked up this Asos wrap dress which I thought was perfect, I've already worn it once to try it out and I felt really good in it. I've paired it with some leopard print heels to give the dress a little bit of edge and interest. I plan on getting a leopard print clutch bag too to tie it all together.
River Island T Shirt Dress - £20 (old)
Camo Jacket from Depop - £10
Gold Chain from Boohoo - £5
Topshop Studded Flats - £22 (old)
I really fancied a camo jacket for some reason, I really like the way they look and think they can be quite edgy. I've really been loving wearing t shirt dresses and plain cami dresses in this heat and I think a camo jacket is the perfect thing to just throw on over the top. This one is a thick shirt, so it's great for this weather, it's still quite breezy but can be easily layered with warmer pieces if need be. I don't think it's the most flattering fit but with bare legs I just love the way it looks. I threw some studded Topshop flats that I think everyone and their mum has owed at some point, and this is my second pair. I just love them so much and I've worn them to death. They fit in perfectly with this look I think. Finally a gold chain is a must have with this outfit but feel free to ditch this is you feel like it's too much.
Dorothy Perkins Cami Top - £14
Topshop Lace Shorts - £22 (old)
Pearl Necklace Passed Down From My Mum.
Finally, I could not resist when I saw this cami in Dorothy Perkins. I initially saw it on a sales assistant just with black jeans and the Topshop boots that are featured in the first look and I fell in love. However, I left the shop without it and just could not stop thinking about it. I ended it ordering it on a 20% off deal so it was only like £12 or something like that so it was perfect. You probably can't tell from the photo but the hem and the neck line are lined with lace which I think makes it slightly sexier. I paired it with these lace shorts that I got last year from Topshop. I think matching the laces together almost create a co-ord but without matching the prints. I think it's a great way to co-ordinate without looking too over the top. Throw on a leather jacket to rock it up or a cardigan for a girlier look. I threw on a pearl necklace too because I love the way it looks with the lace.
