ombre tshirt








tshirt: just female @ asos
leggings: ebay
jacket: primark
shoes: asos*
necklace: forever 21
nails: nails inc porchester square & opi rainbow connection

Ombre hair, Ombre t-shirt, whatever next! The weather has been absolutely glorious in my part of London today so I decided to go for a nice loose tshirt dress and leggings. Although it seems to be all I wear at the moment! The ombre tshirt is right up my street, Right now I love loose, cool and edgier pieces that are simple but still really effective. The Ombre effect looks really cool and ties in well with my signature hair style! I bought this in the S-M size, so be careful if you decided to buy it as it is much bigger than I expected! I'm going to change my nails as Im not loving the combination of the two polishes, I'm thinking a minty green or something? Really craving brighter, fresher colours at the moment!

Im a big fan of ASOS nowadays, I used to be a bit indifferent to it. I always felt there was always way too much stuff to look through but I've enjoyed doing my ASOS Future Stylist stuff and actually taking the time to look through their vast selection of items rather than being all "CBA, effort!". I've purchased a lot from them recently which has surpassed me, Doesn't help that I got ASOS premier when it was on offer a few weeks ago which is free next day delivery! Is anyone else more inclined to buy things when there is free shipping?

Today I decided to re-join the gym, I love exercising so I just needed to get my bum off the seat at my desk and rejoin! Normally once I go back to the gym I get straight into it and go everyday, fingers crossed it works out! I've been talking about it for ages but I really want to do a marathon or half marathon for my friend who died of cancer a few years ago. Maybe its time I actually did it! Bought the most ugly trainers known to man (seriously has anyone seen a nice looking pair?) and also went to Primark (so much nice stuff, but no buying, minimal spends only this month!). Had a lovely day today, the sun has put me in the best mood ever!

  16. LOVE this outfit, hair, makeup, everything! you look fab. so wish i could pull off oversized clothes as well as you, im way too short and stumpy sadly.

    good luck with getting back into the gym! i recommend classes like aerobics and stuff, they are more fun than regular gym sessions and you are more motivated to go because they are at set times every week (says the girl who hasnt been the gym in well over a year haha)

  18. I'm loving dip dyed clothes at the moment too, really want to do some DIY ones to save the pennies. I saw a beautiful jumper that was pink and purple so lovely it reminded me of a summers night.

    I need to join a gym (always say this never do anything) but I don't like exercising it hurts haha. P.S It's so amazing of you to do the marathon in memory of your friend!

  22. I joined up for premiere too, bargain really. £10 for a whole year. I can order my dry shampoo from there instead if catching the bus to town, will save me a fortune. Love the tshirt, might try and make my own xx

  23. Love the ombre tshirt! I used to be the same too about ASOS, there's just sooooo much stuff i could never be bothered to look through it all! Might look into this ASOS premier deal, would save so much money! But then again i'd probably end up just buying stuff just for the free postage...haha.

  38. I have never browsed the ASOS website, partly because I know their prices aren't 'me friendly'. But free shipping usually always sways me into buying something. I HATE shipping charges because I feel like I'm paying money for the privilige of trying something on. And what if I don't like it? Well, tough shit! It's usually one of the bigger reasons I don't shop online. I love free shipping pro-mos!

  40. Awww happy, positive post! I really love the ombre tee, I think I'm going to be living in big tshirts/tunics and leggings this spring summer as I just really love the way it looks and it's so comfortable and easy!! Really want to join a gym again at the minute, I genuinely enjoy going but it is a bit of a cost booooo

  69. Love the outfit, looks so effortlessly cool!
    Good idea about the marathon too...if you wanna get into running I'd recommend the 'couch to 5k' programme, it's really effective and there are free podcasts to download on the nhs website which tell you what to do while your doing it :)

    I think you can apply for Race For Life at the mo. You can do 5k or 10k.
