Hey y'all,
Happy hump day!

I haven't posted an outfit post since I was about 18 (I'm 22 now) for various reasons but I'm so excited to get back to where it all started in the blogging world for me. I remember roping my younger brother into taking photos on my digital camera and later my bridge camera- oh how far I've come hah! I'm still getting back into the swing of posing and all that jazz so bear with my weird facial expressions whilst I rehash all my tips from Tyra- thanks Americas Next Top Model. 

Culottes are my favourite item of clothing right now and maybe ever. I love how versatile and comfy they are. You can dress them down for a day of errands, smarten them up for an interview/work or dress it up for a night out/fancy dinner. I've also got a thing for stripes (me and everyone else right?), so these stripey culottes were a match made in heaven. I spotted them on asos a while back but when I went to order them they were completely sold out. I then spent the next week and a half constantly refreshing the page when I had a spare moment and eventually managed to nab them in a size 8. I'm usually a size 10 on bottoms, but with high waisted items I tend to size down and these being baggy I wasn't worried about the fit.

I teamed them with a plain white crop top, black Arizona Birkenstocks, black pebbled faux leather backpack from ASOS a few years ago, gold jewlery and my burberry watch.

I wore this outfit on Saturday, when I went to lunch with a friend and ran some errands/did a spot of shopping. It's such a relaxed and comfy look and is perfect for the warmer weather.

Credit to my girl Bryher for the photos- Thanks gurrrrl.

How has your week been so far? Any exciting plans fot the weekend?

Peace&Love xxx

  3. Yay for getting back into the swing of blogging! I've been particularly bad as of late getting outfit pictures XD It's either too late in the day when I finally have the time, or there's no one to take the photos of me. Anyways, love this look! Those culottes look so stylish but also comfy. This is totally a look I would copy, all the way down to the birkenstocks :D

    1. I feel you! You should invest in a tripod, you can get fairly cheap ones from amazon. It makes life so much easier!
      I'm glad you like the look,how amazing are Birks though, I wish I lived in a country warm enough that I could wear them all year round haha!

  5. You look amazing with culottes, I honestly have tried so many pairs but I just can't pull it off. I find my legs look weirdly disproportionate whenever I try one on. :-/
