White out...

I'm not sure why I look quite so cheery in these pictures but it makes a refreshing change- usually I tend to  look bleary-eyed rather than chirpy! This outfit is a more casual version of this one and I have been wearing it a lot recently. The top was a recent impulse purchase in the Matalan sale and it looks equally good with high-waisted skirts as it does with skinny jeans- always a winner in my book! I love the jazzy print at the top too, it makes even the most simple outfit look more pulled together. The one problem is that it creases ridiculously quickly, I had ironed it not more than 10 minutes before these photos were taken but you wouldn't know it from all the creases. It's a good job I'm looking pretty relaxed about it huh?! Matalan have really impressed me recently, I could spend a fortune in my local store and I'm sure I certainly will come payday...

Top: Matalan, jeans:Gap, shoes: Matalan, cheesy grin: model's own
The best part about a simple outfit like this is that you can go completely overboard on the accessories! This bright yellow bag is the perfect way to add some sunshine and paired with my new favourite lipstick (Mac Lady Bug) I was hot to trot... 


I know I have been raving about these skinny jeans but they are just so darned good! The cuffed hems were slightly annoying but they do mean that I can show off my snazzy shoes nicely ;) These sandals are the best thing I have bought in a long time and seem to match everything in my (ever-growing) wardrobe, I will definitely be buying a spare pair for when these wear out...


Which brands have impressed you recently?

Love that bag! Reminds me that I have a yellow one I need to dig out. I've been liking the Boden sale recently, some gems there x

Oooh, that top is so pretty! I'm really into Gap these days, they do great denim for the price.

i really don't mind creases you know, a lot of my clothes you can really get away with it, especially soft cotton shirts. maybe not so much with your smart top but at least you look happy with it!

thanks for your comment - it's super hard to get back into it isn't it. i feel the same.
