I don’t know about you, but as a girl sometimes I just get into a bit of a rut with myself. I wear the same style clothes, do my hair the same way everyday, and eventually I just get bored. That’s why, when I purchased a few new going out outfits, I forced myself to go for things I wouldn’t normally wear. (I pretty much always wear all black).
Plus I was gernerally feeling a bit down about the way I looked, and wanted what I was calling ‘wow’ outfits…just to boast my self-confidence a bit.
Here’s a few bits I got before I headed back to university:
This co-ord is from Missguided, and including student discount, came to about £42. Although I think it’s abit pricey for Missguided, it really is so nice on and defintely worth the price…the floor really doesn’t do it justice!
The good thing about a co-ord is that most of the time, the two pieces can be mixed and matched. Plus I discovered the top looks really cute with my 70s style denim skirt! (click here for post)
The thing I love about the outfit is the nude colour and the lace, which instantly just channels summer!
I thought this outfit would probably look better on, rather than on the floor…so I thought a selfie was needed!
This skirt is from Missguided and was only £13 with student discount! It not only is the on trend ‘rust’ colour, but also is really flattering due to the asymmetric wrap over detail.
I initially bought a white lace bralet from Missguided also, but unfortunately it was out of stock. However, I only annoyingly found this out, when the package arrived this morning! However, I just used it as an excuse to pop to the metro centre and purchase this lacy white crop top, from Topshop.
I wouldn’t normally buy a bralet style top from Topshop, as I think there so overpriced compared to the links of Missguided and Miss Selfridge, however this was only £21, so I can’t really complain that much.
I bought these nude lace up heels from Public Desire for around £25 including delivery. (There’s currently an increased student discount offer).
I really like the lace up heel trend, but as soon as I put them on, I instantly didn’t feel like they were very ‘me’. My best friend reassured me it’s because I’m used to only really wearing chunky heels, and because they’re something different…so hopefully they’ll grow on me!
I went for the nude, as nude is supposed to make your legs look longer…at 5ft4 need it! Plus nude pretty much goes with everything. Due to only owning black shoes, I knew I needed to get some summer heels, so I’m really hoping I learn to love them on, as much as I loved them on the website.
What to do think of my outfit choices? What do you love and hate about the current Spring/Summer trends? Let me know!
