OOTN


 H&M shirt, Urban Outfitters shorts, Vintage snakeskin clutch, Primark Ankle boots


Apologies for the terrible camera quality- it was the best I could do when I was rushing out the door. I wore this on a night out recently going for some drinks with friends. The H&M shirt is definitely one of my wardrobe staples. It is so basic but I find it looks good with everything, the fabric is light and slightly sheer and I feel it ties in well with the masculine/feminine trend.

What do you think? What are your wardrobe staples? 

Leather shorts

I am loving leather shorts at the minute. When I told my boyfriend I wanted leather shorts he laughed and said it was something Ron Burgundy would wear. When has that ever been a problem?!

I bought a pair from Urban Outfitters online which turned into a bit of a disaster (which ended up with me ordering another pair and then decided that I could 'break in' the first pair). I wore them on a night out with a dusty pink shirt and some ankle boots a la Port (see next post OOTN). 

Question is: are they suitable for day-wear? I would say HELL YEAH! I'm thinking chunky knit jumper messily tucked in and black tights and ankle boots.

Bad blogger

Hi so I haven't posted in absolutely ages! My life has been a bit chaotic since I've started doing my masters but I want to get back into blogging and hopefully taking lots more photos and videos.

I have a new idea for my blog. Basically I have to stop spending money on clothes/makeup/etc. So I thought I would have a really good look at my wardrobe and try to get more creative. I'm hoping I'll dig out things I haven't worn in ages and come up with new outfit ideas.

So starting now no more frivolous clothes shopping! Obviously I will need to sometimes buy a few bits and pieces- underwear, tights, etc. I am also going to have a charity shop loophole of some sort where I can buy something if it's super cheap and I love it.

Wish me luck! Outfit posts coming soon...
