(Sorry if this post sounds insane, I spent all day doing photography coursework and I think my brain has melted)
HI EVERYONE LONG TIME NO SEE AHHH
I feel like i’m neglecting you and i’m sorry. So here is a quick little outfit of the day post so you don’t all forget that I exist.
Recently I’ve started dressing in long skirts- which is pretty rare for me- I dont really own many long skirts (and I feel kind of like I look like a mad cat lady, but oh well it’s always fun to be original!)
So, I went to the woods the other day to hang all of my jewellery in a tree (please just don’t ask), and I felt like it would be the perfect opportunity to take some outfit photos.
My hat, coat and shoes are all from Topshop, my skirt is from Miss Selfridge, my gloves are cashmere ones from somewhere in Scotland (sorry that’s really not helpful), and my scarf is from accessorize. And i’m sure you all know about my bag by now 😉
Are you all having a great weekend? I look forward to catching up on all of your blog posts really soon ❤
I thought I would make an outfit of the day post, of a typical outfit that I would wear to college. I am a huuuge fan of skirts, I wear them pretty much every day, and the ‘jumper with skirt’ look is one of my absolute favourites. I have this really cute white jumper, with ribbons of lace breaking up the wool. I think it is really cute, and the sheerness of the lace adds a nice twist to the plainness of a traditional white jumper.
(Please excuse my room aka the messiest place on the planet)
This locket is one that I received for my 18th birthday from my gran. I love it so much, I wear it all the time even though I dont actually have any photos in it yet… She got the back engraved and I just think it is the cutest piece of jewellery that I own.
My jumper was from Topshop (about a year ago though) as was my coat, tights and my bag.
My skirt was from boohoo.com, and I have no idea where the locket was from haha!
Ok, I have this really cute aztec print skater dress in my wardrobe that I absolutely adore. Since I wore it today I thought i’d make an outfit of the day post 🙂
I am also completely in love with my coat, I literally live in it at the moment. (wow I just realised how un-colourful I am ha)
The dress has this really cool purple velvet print all over, which didn’t really show up too well in the full length photos. I really love it, and I promise it looks better in real life, as the whole dress seems to change colour as you move!
I went on Polyvore and tried to put the exact outfit together, but I literally just could not find the dress- I got it a while back which probably explains why. I found another similar dress though which I was tempted to buy too 🙂 Oh and the shoes are slightly different- but these ones are actually cheaper.. 😉
So, recently I’ve been super aware of all the velvet pieces that are appearing in our shops, and can I say, I love it.
When I was really young, I vividly remember my mum buying me a dress for christmas, an adorable little dress made of velvet. I used to love this dress so much- it made me feel like a princess and I would insist on wearing it everywhere, my mum literally had to bribe me to wear other clothes. So, I think this must be where my underlying love of the current trend comes from.
I was playing around on polyvore today, and I’ve created a few outfits using different aspects of velvet.
This dress is one of my absolute favourites. Peter pan dresses are a cute style that I have always loved, and I think it really works well with the velvet and the hot colour of 2012, oxblood.
I picked accessories that match the mood of the dress, as well as creating a variation of colour and texture within the outfit.
The idea of velvet blazers make me really happy, and I am going to have to buy one VERY SOON.
Here I decided to pair it with jeans of a similar colour, along with a light coloured top and light coloured matching accessories to break up and highlight the blazer itself.
Blouses with bows are always a cute investment, they go with numerous things and add slightly more interest than a blouse of the same colour without the bow would. Lets just say I have more than I need in my wardrobe… oops!
Annnnd finally, an outfit similar to what you would see me in every single day of my life.
I love love love the combination of skater skirts paired with pretty blouses. I love high heeled boots and structured bags.
Here I have added a cute bangle as an accessory, which is something I wouldn’t usually particularly consider. I dont really have many bangles but this one was just too adorable to ignore.
This skirt is so lovely, I have something similar to it in my own wardrobe and it is one of my absolute favourites.
Here’s a link to my polyvore account, just incase anything here has taken your fancy and you want to know where it’s from! 🙂
So, do you guys like the velvet trend? Let me know because the more comments I get, the more you make my day 🙂
