electric bloom





skirt: zara
top: primark
rings: jwlry & H&M
belt: primark
cardigan: urban outfitters
hat: asos

I have a uncontrollable urge to wear black at the moment. I don't even know where its come from, I was getting so into colours and even the idea of ~colourblocking~ made me happy. I didnt even notice until I was doing my washing earlier that I'd worn predominantly black every single day! Who knows where its coming from! Tried to mix it up today though with this bargain of a top from Primark, it was £6 and it also comes in a bluey violet (which I bought too, oops!) too. I know had a top similar from Topshop. But I had to return the Topshop one because its made out of that weird material that Topshop seem always use at the moment thats kinda rough and semi sheer? IDK what its actually called?! Either way it shrunk in the wash to the size of a babies top! So had to return it as faulty!

  4. Seriously wish I'd spotted that top when I was at Lakeside the other week! It's so nice.
    Shame about the Topshop one shrinking. I think I know what material you mean, but I'd never bought anything in it because I don't like the feel. Now I know it shrinks too.

  7. I LOVE the right photograph in the first row! You styled it so well.
    Black and orange are one of my favourite combinations! Maybe because one colour suggests dark/negative emotions and the other one the opposite? Don't know they just work well together...
    Have a great evening
    Love,
    Emily

  15. Love the orange top. I had a Topshop top made out of that weird material and mine shrunk too - so annoying but thought it was just mine so didn't take it back. x

  16. Your ombre is so blonde! I definitely think the blonde suits you, I know you wanted to go blonde in summer, I think you should go for it!
    And on the book front from yesterday, I just realised you might like The Stars' Tennis Balls by Stephen Fry. Soo good!

  24. I like how you can find things in Primark that you'd see in Topshop. However I do think that Primark are gradually raising their prices. In this case it's a good deal.And you can never go wrong with black!:)

  54. Gorgeous outfit, I really like the shirt. Black is lovely, don't feel bad about it, I don't believe that there are set colours for every season, I'm not one for colorblocking and I wear black as much as I did during winter.
