Anyway, I thought I'd try out an OOTD post for a change. I'm spending the majority of my day sat on a train travelling back to Southampton after a beaut weekend in Plymouth. I say beaut, yet it rained pretty much non-stop. Anyway, I obviously want to be as comfortable as possible but, on the other hand, I certainly don't want to look like no slob. I've found a perfect middle ground and although my look is simply styled I'm fairly sure I don't look too beige - a Plain Jane I am not (at least I hope).
|High neck crop top - Boohoo, £5|
Shorts - Urban Outfitters, £32
Belt - H&M £7.99
Shoes - Boohoo, £15
Necklace - New Look, £3 (sale)
Watch - Urban Outfitter, £10 (sale)
For the journey I've put together a pair of over-sized denim levi shorts from Urban Outfitters, every girls must-have wardrobe item, with a black high-neck crop top from Boohoo, a bargain at just £5. The crop top is just long enough to tuck into the shorts, which is perfect as it is winter and god forbid I catch a chill. I've added a berry coloured belt from H&M which is a necessity as the shorts, although labelled a small, are rather large and would not stay in place unaided and I don't particularly wish to be walking round with my shorts round my ankles. I'm sure no one else wants to see this either.
I've completed the outfit with a gold necklace found in the New Look sale. I don't tend to shop in New Look as I rarely find anything I wish to purchase, however this necklace was a bargain and it looks great with everything. I don't think I've taken it off since I bought it. I've also added a lush watch I found in the Urban Outfitters sale, it has the letter 'B' in the middle which, of course, is just perfect. The thin brown leather strap gives it a vintage-y feel and, as I'm not really one for bling, its simplistic nature makes it so versatile. Finally, the shoes are from Boohoo and are unfortunately no longer in stock. A bargain at just £15, they make a change to my usual shoe-uniform of black heeled chelsea boots. I also love the gold lions on the front, I haven't seen anything like these anywhere else.
For added warmth I will be wearing my huge tartan scarf and a denim jacket complete with a fur collar.
