Checked Shirt and Paisley Culottes

shirt: Topshop, culottes: ASOS, cuff: ASOS, earrings: a present

This shirt is one of my go-tos for easy wearing, so I wanted to mix it up a bit. Instead of pairing it with trousers or leather shorts as I usually do I tried it with these cute paisley culottes. I’m really happy with the mix of patterns, and the shirt tones down the girliness of the paisley print. This outfit is a bit skimpy to wear out at the moment though. Can’t believe how cold it is! I’m counting down the days till summer 🙂

I Want it Wednesday – Cute Enough to Eat

Lacoste Mid L!VE range - pastel trainers

If my mint jeans outfit last week hadn’t tipped you off, I’m a total sucker for pastels. Plus, if Chuck Bass says it’s right, who’s to argue? So I’m loving that this SS candy-coloured everything is huge. First on my pastel necessities list are Lacoste’s ice cream toned trainers – amazing for dressing down a winter outfit while it’s still cold out and then wearing with tiny shorts and fringed tees in summer. The yellow ones are my current favourite. If the sun ever decides to show it’s face again here in the UK then they’ll also look amazing with a tan.

Republic Pink Ombre Jeans

Then we have these amazing pink ombre jeans from Republic. I’ve been wanting faded pink jeans for ages but I love the ombre effect on these, it’s quirky and would look so good with oversized tees and colourful wedges.

Topshop Pastel Mint Green Bag

And finally I had to share this pale, mint green bag from Topshop. Cute as a button and perfect for hazy summer days swanning around a park in tiny denim cut offs, a crop top and strappy sandals.

Hottest Hot Pants Ever

Jesus Christ, how hot is she. This is the coolest outfit – totally over-sexy studded high-waisted leather shorts but with a masculine, rolled up tee and scraped back hair to tone the look down. I couldn’t pull this off but I’ll keep staring at this photo, pretending I can.

shorts: Nasty Gal, top: Topshop, jackets: Topshop, Miss Selfridge, socks: Topshop, shoes: Whistles

Looking at these photos there seems to be a schoolgirl vibe going on … maybe it’s the long socks, blazer and backpack combo! But that wasn’t intentional, promise 😉 I just really wanted to take these new Nasty Gal shorts on an outing and since it was too cold to go barelegged I put on these socks and layered up with two jackets. I’m a major cold wus but this outfit kept me nice and warm.

I found finding shoes to go with long socks  really difficult! Settled on these pink plimsoles as they match the shorts. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what shoes to wear with them?

Coloured Shorts

Topshop Coloured Shortssource: http://www.topshop.com/

Me want. I have a tonne of coloured skirts but most of them are rather short and have a naughty habit of riding up my thighs as I walk, and constantly tugging at their hems is not a good look. So I’m moving on to coloured shorts. They’ll last me through winter paired with thick knit tights and big coats, and then they’ll come into their own during summer.

Of course the Isabel Marant pink lace ups (first picture) are the queen of coloured shorts, but Topshop has a number of great choices if you fancy painting your bottom all the colors of the rainbow. And check out Couturelust’s awesome DIY Isabel Marant lace ups tutorial if you’ve got bare sewing skillz.
