Outfit: Blue Stripes & Black


This is one of the outfits I wore over the Easter long weekend. This is my favourite top that I’ve ever owned; I bought it last year and posted it here. I love it because of the vibrant bright blue, the little design on the sleeves, and the statement bow which all make it very girly and unique. However, I don’t actually wear it particularly often because I haven’t got many plain skirts and I usually wear dresses. I think I should change this. My favourite top definitely deserves much more use!  I recently got my black skirt (and my green skirt from my last post) hemmed so I’m getting a lot more use out of them. I can’t believe how many outfits I can make with those two skirts; it’s opened up a whole new realm of possibilities. Another versatile item is my new bag which I bought for my birthday. I’ve used it every single day this week and it goes with absolutely everything. I love it so much! Also, the shoes; I love how often I’m told that they closely resemble the Marc Jacobs Daisy. As for the hair bow, I thought a touch of red would  stand out and work well; I also randomly felt like mixing spots and stripes which I’m seeing more of lately. This outfit came together by combining a number of my favourite items. For an unemployed person, I’ve had an extremely busy week. I believe, that after a difficult few months, my life might finally be getting better; even on the employment front things are potentially looking up. So much of it is associated with self belief; giving myself a chance, putting myself out there, taking chances, challenging myself despite extreme self doubt and realising just how much I’ve underestimated myself especially over the past few years. I don’t want to say too much about it because I’m still in the initial stages but I should have a lot to say once everything is finalised. 

…oh and how amazing is ‘Let Her Go’ by Passenger. I can’t stop listening to it.

  1. I do love all of the feminine details to your outfit! The bow on the blouse, the bow in back of your hair, the fun shoes-it all works wonderfully well together! Your bag is so great, I can see why you'd wear it with everything! I really enjoy basic skirts as well- they're so versatile! Glad things are looking up for you, hope your week isn't too busy! 🙂
