what i'm wearing:
topshop waterfall white blazer (old)
zara leather look sleeveless tunic
h&m basic skirt
topshop chain necklace
urban outfitters elephant purse
MK watch

i feel like all my outfit posts are all so boring but i know that my followers enjoying reading them so i thought i'd put it up anyway. i've actually had this blazer since june; when i received it as a birthday present, and i have only worn it twice as i find it really hard to style. which i think is such a shame as it's such a nice staple piece in my wardrobe. i don't think i've photographed it really well but i really liked the contrast of the leather look top with the blazer which is why i decided to be brave and wear it today. unless its summer i think the only way to wear white is with everything else in all black. i just paired it with my trusty ankle boots featured in my previous post, and i was ready to go. even though i love my mulberry coin purse it was starting to get extremely bulky because i own far too many cards, so it was time to branch out. i needed to take a trip to urban outfitters anyway to make a return so instead i decided to exchange because i loved this purse. finally, if you keep up with me via twitter or instagram you'll have heard me going on about the fact that i'm back blonde again! it was super expensive at £104, i almost keeled when i got to the till to pay but at least i'm happy right? i've made a vow to myself to never go down the brunette route again because blonde is always better.

p.s i've been a little blank for blog posts lately so i'd love to hear what you would want to see on my blog next. xo

    The blazer is very nice, but I can understand that it's not the easiest to style.

  11. The blazer is quite different to normal blazers, I really like it. I'd love to see a post on how to style a longer dress, either a midi or a maxi.
