bed of roses

17/02/2013


what i'm wearing:
céline t-shirt via eBay
h&m red blazer (sale)
topshop high waisted joni jeans
topshop chain necklace
topshop loafers*
MK watch

two outfit posts in two days, am i feeling alright?! i'm joking but at least i've finally got round to photographing the one outfit i'd had planned to get posted since i bought this t-shirt 3 weeks ago! i will apologise though as i've been choosing the worst time of the day to photograph and for that the quality of my images has been compromised. at least i've got them up though, right? after seeing kavita from shewearsfashion post about this top i zoomed on eBay and purchased it. it took two weeks to come but it was so worth the wait. i'd had such a great image in my head that i was going to wear it with a red blazer and my leather skirt (which i did the first time if you look on my instagram) but low and behold, i didn't have a red blazer. so when just looking over in the adult h&m store i spotted this in the sale for £10 and there was only one left and in my size. it's clearly fate. with my staff discount i only paid £7.50 for it so even though sometimes i feel like an air hostess in it, it was worth it. earlier in the week i finally caved and bought the oh so hyped about joni jeans. at first i thought i loved them, but now i'm not so sure. i definitely got the right size for me but i think because i'm curvy in the hip department they are incredibly unflattering to my shape, despite getting them in black. finally i just popped on my loafers that have a slight red flickers in them to compliment the blazer and i was good to go. it's such a versatile top, it can be dressed up or down. it's without a shadow of a doubt my favourite purchase over the past couple of months.

p.s how cute are my roses? this is the second valentines liam has gotten them for me and they are finally starting to open and i love them. i couldn't help but show them off.

please check out my blog sale as everything has been reduced and must go!

  10. I've got my eye out for a nice red blazer. I spotted these in the H&M sale, but as usual, by the time I decided I wanted one it was too late and they didn't have it in my size :(

  18. Love your top, and those pants aren't unflattering like you think! I am the same shape, and I always think the same thing about me, but the funny thing is that seeing it on someone else they look completely normal to me!

    Gorgeous flowers too :)

  40. I absolutely love the pop of colour with the blazer, I think it works really well. The trousers aren't unflattering at all either they give you a nice shape! I love the necklace most of all, I think I'm going to have to be on the lookout for one! x
