denim and pink



denim shirt - f21, skirt - UO, boots - topshop, bag - asos

this is an example of one of those outfits that i like at the time, but i look back on these photos and think, UGH. i'm getting this a lot lately - i'm really feeling stuck in a fashion-y rut. i try to buy things i love, but at the same time occasionally buying things which are a bit different to try and push myself out of my fashion comfort zone. even then, there are things i'd love to try (i've been thinking about trying tapered trousers in a lovely colour for a while now...) but i just know my body shape won't work with them, i hate when that happens!

then again, i've always prefered dressing in autumn/winter/spring than summer, i guess because of certain issues with my body (i really, really don't like my legs, meaning tights with no shorts is a real struggle for me!). thank goodness all the shops are already stocking a/w things - i'm already looking forward to layering more!

  2. I think this will be the first time I'm commenting on your blog. I always read every post you write and right now I really had the feeling that I wanted to tell you that I exactly know how you feel about your legs. I have the same thing. But what I also wanted to mention was that I think you really have some nice legs! Not too skinny and not too 'curvy'. Kind of the legs I would like to have, haha

  4. I know - autumn already! You really have nothing to worry about... Except having to wear summer clothes next February. Fashion is so ahead of the seasons nowadays...
    This looks lovely and not rut-ish at all :) They had only size L and XS in the skirt at my Urban outfitters, veryy sad for me
    It would be mine

  8. see i'm having the opposite problem; i feel stupid wearing certain outfits "in real life" and it's only when i take a photo that i realise i probably don't look as stupid as i feel. personally, i really admire your style because you have signature pieces like your polka dots blouses and hat, whereas my wardrobe is such a mess. at least you know what suits your shape and don't give into trends for the sake of them. and as for the tights thing, i'm with you on that; bring back winter layers! anyway the main point of this rambling comment is that i always think you look lovely and this outfit is no exception -x-

  9. Same here! But when I look outside it's already autumn anyways so why not dress like it?

  10. I agree, dressing for summer is my least favorite season to dress for. You always manage to look great no matter the season.

  13. Summer is my favourite... dresses are better than shorts anyway. And lady,I don't know how you look in 3D or anything... but your legs always look gorgeous on the blog here!

  21. There is no worse critic for our fashion choices then ourselves. I think this is a fun outfit and would have simply chosen sandals rather than short boots due to the skirt length however I am in Texas and the heat is oppressively hot. As it is cooler where you are, I am sure the shoes were a factor on practicality as much as style! I believe the overall effect is lovely!
