bedhead









top: monki
necklace: river island
jacket: primark
bag: H&M
bracelet: black-tied*
shoes: office
rings: market stall and love hearts and crosses*
nails: bourjois ??

Tonight I'm off out for a few cocktails so I wore something that I could go from day to night too without being too much or taking too long to get ready. I kept it simple with a oversized slightly scruffy looking skirt long shirt. I decided not to iron it because I just have this thing about white shirts, they can either look really cool and crisp or they can look too over done and uptight. Plus I prefer the scruffy bedhead look! I paired it with my favourite jacket, trusty office flatforms and my statement snakeskin clutch!

I love my American Apparel leggings so much, I feel like I wear them so (too) much at the moment. As I've mentioned before they are the perfect alternative to American Apparel Disco Pants. If Disco Pants weren't so long or as tight I'm sure I'd be all for them, but they just don't suit me. These are just so comfortable and easy to wear and so much cheaper. I know I keep raving about them but I absolutely love them!

  19. Are the leggings worth the money, do you think? :-) I'm sick of buying leggings that cost between £10-£15 and them going all seethrough after a few washes. Not a nice look!
    I looove this outfit, especially the pop of colour from your nails
