Troll Face

This outfit combines four of my favourite pieces from my wardrobe and it’s probably one of my favourite outfits I’ve worn in ages. Slouchy but smart, pastel but warm…it was perfect for a lazy Sunday morning (until I got chocolate on the top) and then again for evening drinks- the in between was spent in something far less glamorous as Ben and I went for a bike ride and skirts + bikes + Laura’s dignity really don’t mix.

Top: New Look | Skirt: ASOS Tall (sale) | Brogues: Hobbs via McArthur Glen | Necklace: Chelsea Doll c/o Spoiled Brat

I’ve mentioned before that I own this New Look top in three other colours, they are the most brilliant basic for both work and non work wearings. I can’t remember exactly how much they cost, but just like the vests I’ve gone on and on about as well they were worth their bargain price as they wear and wash so well. I hope New Look bring out some more colours for the colder months. I initially thought the boxy shape might be a bit too much with this skirt, which for some reason I am a little afraid of wearing. It’s probably because the split front comes up quite high, but as long as one is careful when getting out of a car or jumping over anything there isn’t any reason for it to cause a problem. This is yet another well cut piece from the ASOS tall range , which I am fairly obsessed with. Whilst writing this post I had a cheeky look at their new arrivals and OH MAN there are so many pieces I want to add to my wardrobe right now.

I pretty much live in these brogues when I need a flat but smart shoe as they are so comfortable and have the ability to liven up any outfit. This time I chose them because they complemented the colours in this immense necklace I’m wearing- hands down my favourite piece that Chelsea Doll have ever made, which is saying something as they make rather a few awesome feline themed pieces. I tend to go minimal on my jewellery on a day to day basis but sometimes I just can’t resist the urge to break out something a bit jazzier…and it doesn’t get much jazzier than this little gang of trolls!

What are you like when it comes to jewellery? Do you keep it subtle or take a loud and proud approach?
