ASOS Fashion Finder with Urban Outfitters 2


This is my second outfit that I styled with the Urban Outfitters leather skirt, which I would wear probably for casual drinks somewhere. Can never go wrong with a printed tee. I got this t-shirt early last year, but the website has since closed down (boo). If you're wondering what I'm talking about, here is the link to the first post about this feature, which explains everything!

ASOS Fashion Finder with Urban Outfitters


Skirt: c/o Urban Outfitters, Top: Topshop, Necklace: River Island, Shoes: ASOS

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be contacted by ASOS to be part of the 'Ones to watch' feature with Urban Outfitters and style 1 item of clothing 5 different ways. Of course I jumped on board and chose a vintage leather skirt as I thought it would give me a lot of versatility with the outfits. I'm going to blog everyday for the next 5 days, with each day showing a different look with the leather skirt. This first look is definitely a formal party look, as leather on leather is hard to pull off in everyday life, especially when its all black. If you're just too impatient to wait everyday for a new look, you can visit HERE to view the looks together. Hope you enjoy!

The Skort

Top: Topshop, Sleeveless Blazer: Primark, Skort: Ebay, Bag: H&M, Shoes: ASOS (similar)

The Zara skort has probably got to be the most pictured item this summer in the fashion blogging world, and obviously when I saw it I felt like I NEEDED it in my wardrobe, along with everything else. However, I currently own a ridiculous number of shorts (too ashamed to even say)and didn't know if I could justify the £25.99 price tag, with holidays and things to save for. However, I found an amazing cheap alternative on Ebay for just £3.99, and as long as you're happy to wait around 2 weeks for delivery, you cannot tell the difference between this or the Zara skort!

Prints Combo

Jacket & Shorts: Zara, Shoes: ASOS (similar), Top: Topshop (similar)

I'm one of those people who can hardly ever find anything worthwhile in the sales, while I'm watching others snap up the most amazing pieces at little to nothing prices. I am proud to say that everything I'm wearing here (apart from the vest) has been a sales find.
The heeled sandals craze has been all over fashion blogs and stores and I scored these for just £13.50 on ASOS. I'm also loving the matching prints trend and can't get enough of this jacket and shorts combo from Zara. I bought the jacket a while back without knowing they made matching shorts, walked in Zara the other day, saw them-immediately had to get them. Its an illness!

Flowers

Top: Topshop, Shorts: Topshop

I recently bought this black mesh floral top and I can't express how easy it is to wear. Its a little over sized so looks great in a casual outfit.
The shorts are the acid wash effect which I bought in winter to go with tights as they are REALLY short and 'leggy' if you get my drift. So I would suggest a size up. On a side note, sorry about my hair colour situation. Didn't even know I had roots until i saw these pictures!

Also, keep an eye out for my next blog post as i have some pretty exciting news coming up for next week! aah.

Runner Shorts

Top: Topshop, Shorts: Topshop, Sunglasses: Topshop

The weather has been AMAZING lately so I thought it was definitely time to wear my 'runner' shorts to a picnic. I got them in the Topshop sale last Autumn for £7 but haven't really had much opportunity to wear them. They're super comfy and light, and I also don't have to do the special 'pulling my shorts up and they don't fit me' dance. The shape of them is really flattering and I hope I get a lot more wear out of them this summer.

What has everyone been doing in this lovely UK weather?

Beach Time


Bikini top: H&M, Shorts: American Apparel

It was such a lovely hot day today so I went to the beach! Love this H&M bikini with the little metal gold cuff between the cups. Strapless has to be the way forward as I have endured too many dodgy tan lines from straps in my time. I've already blogged about these shorts but I still love them, they're just so versatile.

Pastel

Shirt: Topshop, Trousers: Topshop, Necklace: River Island, Sunglasses: Topshop

I bought these pastel patterned trousers in the Topshop sale last week and there are such a good staple item. Super comfy, and can be dressed up or down. The shirt is a find last year from Ebay, as I love how different the cut-outs make the shirt. (trousers label in the picture..oops) Can't believe I've blogged two days in a row! You have no idea how hard it was to get these shots as the gail force-like winds blew hair and clothes in all directions possible.

Midi Skirt

Top: ASOS, (similar here) Skirt: Urban Outfitters,(similar here) Jacket: River Island, Necklace: River Island

Been a bit more MIA the past week then I have wanted to, but 10 hours of work everyday makes me v v sleepy. (if you're lazy and not used to it like me) Also, I am not as sad as I look in these photos...clearly just tired! Love any of these jackets that have the contrast-y material. 



I need a holiday.
