ASOS Girl|OOTD

Shirt, Jeans and BootsASOS.

I am a walking advert for ASOS in this outfit and I didn’t even mean to be! The ASOS sale is literally one of my favourite parts of the year because the bargains are insane. I wore this outfit for dinner and cinema with A and love how great it is for summer evenings.

I live in Ridley Skinny Jeans so when some distressed ones popped up in the sale I just couldn’t say no. I’m not sure I have the best knees for tight ripped jeans – they’ve been compared to two doughnuts but I love how they add a bit of grunge to the outfit without looking trashy.

The kimono shirt was a pretty big step outside the box for me. It’s super over sized and I was a little worried it would drown my quite tiny body especially with the large floral print, but I love how floaty and boho it feels which adds contrast to the ripped jeans.

I’ve had the Roxy Chelsea Boots since Christmas and found I haven’t worn them to much so decided to wipe the dust off them and take them for a ride.

Do you ever end up wearing just one brand?

Occasionally I have to go to production meetings and although I don’t have to dress in a super smart suit there is a certain business casual approach that I like to take. Black jeans are a great smart casual version of suit trousers and I can’t live without my ASOS Ridley Jeans which fit perfectly and aren’t overly tight. I love teaming these with my leg lengthening H&M Chelsea Boots.

Smart t-shirts are pretty hard to find but this beauty from Primark is great, it’s super comfy and is loose without making you look like you 3 dress sizes bigger than you already are, and the back is sheer giving it a little extra something. I love this bag from Accessorize its perfect for chucking my laptop, scripts and general crap in. My glasses are Specsavers, I finally got new glasses a few months ago and love these chunky black frames.

London Southbank is one of my all time favourite places to go and recently I went there with some of the family for a day out at the Aquarium. Its still not entirely spring in the UK yet so I wanted to layer up so wrapped up with a pussy-bow blouse, a jerkin that you can’t see and then my favourite military style coat from H&M. This look is slightly more sophisticated than what I normally go for but I really love it. I went for trusty favourites on the bottom half with my ASOS Ridley Jeans and H&M Chelsea Boots.

Vampire Academy|OOTD

 Blouse – Topshop|Jumper – H&M|Shorts – Primark|Boots – ASOS.

My current obsession is the film Vampire Academy and part of the obsession is how bad ass Rose made her school uniform; so I took a little bit of inspiration to create this preppy monochrome outfit which has a slight edge.

My favourite thing about this outfit are the shorts, the scalloped edge makes it a little different to all my other black shorts and at only £12.00 there is no excuse not to snap them up! Super comfy and a little bit high waisted without being restrictive or super short.

Nothing beats a white collar with a black jumper and the different textures add another something to the outfit. The jumper is a little cropped number that I picked up in the H&M sale, great for high waisted bottom halves, helping make the body look a little longer than it actually is. To get that edgy Rose Hathaway vibe I added my chunky ASOS Roxy Boots.

Have you seen Vampire Academy?

Your heart is unobtainable|OOTD

Coat- Christian Dior(similar)|Trousers – H&M|Crop Top – H&M(similar)|Platforms – ASOS(similar)|Hat – Topshop(similar).

As much as I love my blue jeans and white shirt combination sometimes I like to try out a different silhouette and when I found this gorgeous Dior over-coat in my dads wardrobe I knew I had to showcase it. It’s obviously very oversized on me but in a way that it doesn’t swamp my figure rather compliment it. I paired it with two H&M basics that I love. I have the crop top in lot’s of colours I like the fact that its a slightly longer crop top so is perfect with high-waisted bottoms like these comfy black trousers.

In keeping with the monochrome colour scheme – no surprises there I popped on my huge ASOS platforms, still love these babies and they had a nice bit of clunk to the outfit plus my favourite hat of the moment my Topshop straw bowler. On my lips to add a pop of colour is Revlon Provocateur.
