Work play outfit

fashion diary, my inspiration, new outfit, Style, styles

That’s what I call it anyways…

Because that’s what it looks like to me. Whats not to love about an outfit that makes you feel like a student but also looking like a part time bad ass boss at work.

A casual and comfy turtle neck jumper, a pair of elegant slim black trousers, with a beautiful styled silver ring buckle. The patent burgundy boots (featured a lot on my blog…oops) give this dark toned outfit a pop of colour but not too bright as it would through the monotone palette way off. But red would be a nice touch to make that sheer statement.

I love these trousers from missguided and this reliable knitted jumper from H&M.

I’m hoping to go with this same work play outfit but really focusing on the two counter parts.

I’m on the hunt for a white sweatshirt with prefably a red logo to match a overly sized red knitted cardigan for perfect layering. This will really play on the “play” side of my apired look and will help me out a lot during these treacherous weather winds. Let’s layer!

Work trousers, and some sexy office heels. Much like these black high heel pumps…

I would have a picture demonstration for my apired outfit but all will be revealed!

NASTY GAL IS SO KIND

fashion diary, staples, Style

…She is, She hooked me up with my honey top of course. The struggles of finding a good quality T, oversized with simple writing on the front that isn’t childish, has proven to be a massive hunt.

T’ s like these are fashion staples at the moment! Everyone has them for casual days up to nights out with the gals. But be prepared for drunken strangers to call you Honey and “Is your name honey.”

I wore my favourite leather skirt from Missguided.

You can wear them casually with a great pair of 70’s jeans, flared out the bottom with sock boots. I would love to own a pair one day and perhaps corduroy trousers too!

Got to love the leather jacket on the last picture outfit!😍

Abroad update – Flirty frocks 

fashion diary, Style

This maxi dress fits me like a glove. The dreaded moment before entering the changing rooms, the final result – IT FITS! This being a big deal to me due to the fact my height is 5.1 and maxi dresses are always best suited for longer legs.

This dress was perfect for my Barcelona trip, blending with the ostentatious buildings and weathered grimmy streets; this dress was the perfect loose chiffon dress for Barcelona weather. The small pretty peach and blue flower prints made the dress playful, but the wrap around the chest and the tie-in at the waste gave the dress that flirtatious effect.

This summer it is all about the froks and I’m almost disappointed that I didn’t invest in more. There is always next time…Catch me in my new froks when in Rome!

How to repeat an outfit and get away with it

fashion diary, Fashion switch up

It’s our second night here in main land Spain and we are in love.
Heaven on earth
We decided to hit the town for a meal and ONLY a few drinks. But, we suddenly wound up at this bar and left 2 am with these guitarists just singing to us towards the end!

It was a good job I had my shorts on for the night

I feel better in denim shorts for a night out. Either shorts or skirt but a good pair of denim shorts always looks best with a black belt.
I coordinated black and blue together; Black is brilliant for night time outfits, and blue accessories seemed like a chic touch!

My dangly earings which are royal blue give the outfit a real elegant feel and when you work your way down you get more of an edge to the outfit with the denim shorts and belt. The shoes which are great length give the entire outfit that sexy and sophisticated look.
My day to evening outfit

If you were to go without accesories in a bright/bold colour, both outfits could look a little flat, as there isn’t enough colour in the outfit alone to draw attention.
I love the white skirt and it’s sweet shape. The metallic rings and zip at the front is daring and can take you through to the evening. But denim shorts for a night out on your holiday is my personal preference.

To get my outfit:

  • Skirt and top – pretty little thing
  • Shorts – H&M
  • Earings – Jasper Conran
