OVER THE KNEE... and far away



Outfit details:
Light Before Dark Jumper- Urban Outfitters, Skirt - New Look (also on ASOS),  Boots - eBay, Sunnies - Le Specs by Net-A-Porter

Yess!! I finally got those Stuart Weitzman-esque boots every fashionista on Instagram has been posting... BUT... I got them for a quarter of the price (if my maths is right)!The originals are to die for, but unfortunately, at this time in my life, I couldn't justify spending £600 on a pair of boots. 

So I did what every bargain hunter does and searched for a suitable dupe. And I found it. They look alright right? Yeah, not too shabby. Maybe one day I will get my Stuart Weitzman's.

Back 2 Basics



 
 Outfit details:
Jumpsuit - Primark (instore only unfortunately but similar here and here), Shoes - Zara (two seasons ago, similar here) , Y drop necklace - asos (similar here)

Fashion has gone all the way back to the 1940s with SS15's popular Utility Chic look. 
I have seen so many beautiful utility pieces floating in the fashionsphere but this Primark number grabbed and locked my attention.  This jumpsuit is the epitome of laid back chic. I adore the large pockets, the middle tie detail and the of course, the khakiness.

I know I rave on about this a lot but it is crucial that my wardrobe this year is suitable for both work and play. I have reached that sad sad age whereby a work outfit must be easily transformed into an after work drinks outfit before it gets a second look.  Don't get me wrong, I do buy the odd holiday or specific nights out items but most of my clothes have been purchased with the  'could I wear this to work and on a night out?' question in mind. And if the answer is yes, the outfit is a clear winner.  So the long and short is, this jumpsuit is perfect for my life right now.

A - LINE

Can summer be here soon because I am sick to my toes of layers.
This is me reminiscing back to my time in Morocco whereby the weather did not define me, I defined the weather (kinda)
Outfit details:
Ribbed Top & Skirt (my fav similar's here, here here and here) - Both Topshop , Nike Frees 4.0 (similar real ones here)

I love Topshop's ribbed crop  top-jumpers. So much so I have them in three colours. Usually, I layer them - so I wear a long shirt underneath for a somewhat business cool or pair them with some high waisted goodies for a weekend look.  I particularly love the texture of them however be a tad careful on which heat you wash them on as they have a tendency to shrink.

This beautiful A line skirt was purchashed in the sale. A brilliant find I must add. I love the pattern , the shape (A line is so IN right now) and the also very in trend zip down the middle detail.
And my lovely Nike Free's are in fact Nike Fakes purchased from the Moroccan souks for £14!! AND, what great fakes they are!! I wouldn't ordinarily buy fake shoes but I don't wear trainers too often so it kind of made sense.
