Catch-up time! Since yesterday was all about my amazing night seeing Florence & The Machine, my Monday college style got passed over.. So today's post is a double-up of Monday & Tuesday's looks, both of which were designed to make my sleep deprivation less noticeable. I have nearly caught up on my ZZZs now, but I still nearly nodded off on the bus a few times.
Also, since it is March, the coats have been well and truly packed away because it is officially Spring, so these looks may have been a little impractical for the windy weather, but since when was I practical? And as Kylie says, a girl's gotta suffer for fashion! Here's Monday's style..
Blazer & Skirt - ASOS; Top & Necklace - New Look; Belt - H&M; Shoes & Bracelet - Topshop; Tights & Ring - Primark; Bead Bracelet - Accessorize; Earrings - bought in India.
Apologies for terrible light! It was early in the morning.. Anyway. The basis for this look was the tribal trend of SS'12, which is one of the key looks. I bought this top on Saturday and was keen to wear it, and then I remembered this gorgeous tribal skirt that I had from a few years back (it's a bit big now, but nothing a belt can't fix!). I love the idea of mixing prints, and the tribal look lends itself so well to that because it is just so more-is-more. Of course, I had to put my own stamp on the tribal look with my beloved blazer, and some glam gold accessories.
And here comes Tuesday, yet another bright look.
Blazer - ASOS; Jeans & Ring - H&M; T-shirt - Mary Katrantzou for Topshop; Shoes - New Look; Bracelet - Pull & Bear; Earrings - Topshop.
Again, not the best light I have ever seen.. Sorry. Today's outfit started off with my gorgeous Mary Katrantzou for Topshop t-shirt, making its debut. I am still completely in love with the digitized floral print, which manages to combine modern cool with a romantic spring print - that's the genius of Mary. It is also amazingly well cut in a beautiful-feeling material, so it was definitely worth the frantic shopping & the pricetag! I styled it with my blazer to add structure, then tucked it into my metallic skinny jeans which add much-needed colour, and another SS'12 twist.
