For the first Saturday in ages, I wasn't working this morning (evening shift - yay!), so of course I hit my local shops hard. Shamefully, despite pounding that pavement for quite some time I didn't actually buy that much. I'd had ideas in my head of things I'd seen before and was highly tempted to snap up, but of course when I actually got to the right stores, those things weren't there, or weren't in my size - oh the difficulties of being an average size!
Blazer - ASOS; Top & Shoes - New Look; Jeans - Primark; Bag - H! by Henry Holland; Cuff - H&M; Ring - Topshop; Earrings - Accessorize.
I went for a simple, relaxed outfit today, relying on bold colour and different textures to see me through. I don't wear jeans or trousers half as often as I wear skirts/shorts/dresses, so when I do I don't like to just wear your average pair of indigo skinnies (although I do own some of those) and would much rather make a statement. Coloured denim has been big in fashion for a few seasons now, and it is going nowhere as we get into the swing of SS'12. I have my eye on a few other coloured pairs, but while they remain firmly in my dreams I picked out this cobalt blue pair. I paired them with a white cutout lace top (white is another SS'12 trend), which stops me looking too covered-up and conservative, along with my blazer and some bright accessories. I also wore my hair up for the first time in a while, purely because it hasn't actually come down since yesterday evening!
I said that I didn't buy very much, and it is true.. In fact the only thing worth mentioning is this gorgeous new pair of flats from Primark.
Okay, in the light here they look almost light teal coloured, but I swear to you these cute little dolly shoes are actually a delightful shade of mint green. And it's not really a secret that mint is one of my favourite colours right now, as well as a big hit in fashion - yes, Gaga was right. Since they were such a bargain, I couldn't resist these shoes. They are perfect for spring, and will work beautifully with all the other pastel colours that have infiltrated my wardrobe.
