i am not a goth






shirt: zalando* (with a long sleeve primark top under)
skirt: romwe*
jacket: boohoo
rings: jwlry & H&M
nails: nails inc porchester square *
shoes: H&M

Wearing all black again today. I often get comments saying I should wear more colour. I like some colours (namely red, purple and pink) but Im not overly fussed on the rest. I hate this idea that you have to wear colour and all black looks drab/boring. Long gone are my quasi goth and emo days, I just enjoy wearing black! I think its classic, simple and chic. Im not fussed if someone wears all neon orange or all grey, I think as long as you like what you're wearing you're all good. Plus black is possibly the easiest thing to wear, especially for people like me who dont really think too much about what they wear ;)! Suppose Im not helping my I am not a goth point by wearing a cross embroidered shirt but ya know! I remember seeing Gracie wearing a similar one at the Motel Party and made a mental note to get one at some point. I just cant get enough of this shirt, When I saw it on Zalando I just had to have it! Also sporting a new jacket I got from Boohoo, Again like the burgundy one I love the masculine shape and slouchy oversized style!

Off to my Dads birthday meal tonight, home cooked steak and chips is always a winner! Today I've been so moody and flipping out about the silliest thing for reasons I cannot explain! Hoping its just end of year blues! I'm not normally the temperamental type! Hoping cuddles with my baby brothers will make me feel alot better! I found this Nails Inc Polish in my to review box and couldnt for the life of me remember where I acquired it, but omg its gorgeous. A beautiful grey with a hint of lilac, so sophisticated and easy.

  10. Nothing wrong with black! Like you I used to be a goth/mosher (whatever they were called in those days) but I haven't stopped wearing black because I think it looks more sophisticated. My favourite outfits are monochrome :)

  30. I'm currently wearing a similar colour but it's a bit darker! it was only £1 from MUA and it's gorgeous! I need to go and pick up a few more as mines nearly run out, I'm also loving the shirt and jacket combo.

  51. i think black is a very flattering and chic colour and this has nothing to do with goth. coco chanel wasn't a goth either and she loved the colour black :D

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love this outfit! particularly the top!
    I have the same problem with black, I ADORE it! So much so that I actually got 'band' from wearing it at my friends birthday party recently after she stated she had never seen me in any 'going out' outfit that wasn't black! (woopsies)

  58. Like you, I prefer wearing blacks and greys instead of color. It really is a much simple way to dress for the day. Love your outfit as well. I want to grab the shirt through the screen.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Haha, love your title. I don't think black's gothic, at all. Black is like your statement, for how long I've followed you, you've worn mostly black and you've always looked lovely! I also love your nail varnish, see, that's not black ;) x

  63. I get the same comments, people call me gothic and emo for dressing mainly in black and white. And its interesting because right now I'm completely colourless. But your outfit is still stunning!

    Happy New Year!

  68. People always tell me I should wear more colour too - but I like black!
    The shade of this polish is gorgeous too, and so unique. I think Nails Inc formulations are my favourite - shame about the price!
