Dress: Louche at Joy | Boots: Miista
Right now I am 100% crushing on this pair of boots on the Miista website. I love a simple shoe with a statement heel and these are just gorgeous. Still, I am on a strict budget at the moment and it doesn’t stretch to new boots (or indeed much at all) so it’ll have to be an online love affair for the time being!
I can’t even remember the last time I wore this blouse, I was drawn in by the cat print (of course!) forgetting that I really am not a shirt or blouse kind of girl! Still, I can’t bring myself to get rid of it so decided that I’d best make an effort to get a few wears out if it at least- I’m having a major declutter of my life at the moment and anything un-worn for more than 3 months is heading to e-bay or the charity shops/clothes bank. Half of my battle with blouses is knowing HOW to wear them, they remind me so much of school uniform that I have some kind of mental block. I think I did ok with this leather look pinafore though, and my beloved (bargain) Miista boots that are quite possibly my favourite shoes ever.
My hairs looking a bit out of control in these photos, it’s got so long all of a sudden and I’m at a real loss as to what to do with it. I can’t afford to go and get it cut and coloured at the moment, and even if I could I don’t want to just go for the same old thing. Leave me some suggestions below, perhaps I’ll sell enough of my unworn items to splash out and go wild on a brand new ‘do!
Dress and Top: Primark | Boots: H&M | Necklace c/o Henryka | Bangle c/o Guess Jewellery | Ring: Pandora
I’m a bit of a magpie when it comes to unusual stud earrings and the second I saw these pink glitter studs I wanted them in my collection. I tend to stick to stud earrings for every day wear as they keep things more subtle for work, these are a super fun way to add in some sparkle without going OTT.
My wardrobe has been lacking in staples and basics for quite some time so when I spied this ribbed top for a mere £8.99 it was another no-brainer purchase (again, what spending ban?) and I hope that as budget allows I can pick up some more in other colours as they are the perfect length and fit for wearing to work.
This year I’m definitely determined to embrace a more minimal approach to clothes shopping, attempts at saving aside I really could do with less fancy patterned pieces and more of the staples that can be worn with a variety of separates. Where do you shop when it comes to getting basics? It’s been so long since I properly browsed for them I have no idea where to begin. I’ve had a mass wardrobe cull and I’m listing bits and pieces on it’d be good to spend some of the proceeds on stocking up on the essentials.
