So this week I had some time off work and spent a few days chilling with my family which was amazing. My parents were staying in Rye for a mini-break so I hopped on the train from London to meet them for a few sunny days of relaxation. Being as the sun was out in force my legs made their first sans-tights appearance of the year and I thought I’d go a bit colour crazy too in ode to the good weather.
I’m wearing one of my favourite dresses which I bought from Topshop about two years ago in a sale and it has some gorgeous frill detailing and a fabulous pansy and skull pattern which I think is so eye-catching. Florals are always a big hit for spring/summer but I love that the skulls add extra interest to this dress and give it a bit of an edge. I teamed my dress with my very favourite coat which you may have seen before due to my wearing it on every occasion possible. Incase you haven’t heard me waffle on about it before it was a lowly £6 in a Peacocks sale also about two years ago, maybe even three now! The shoes are just some black wedges from New Look and are great for everyday as they are almost, just almost, a flatform so they’re super comfy but don’t compromise on height or style! Lastly my black handbag is from Primark, as a lot of my accessories are!
Surprise, surprise I’m wearing my ever faithful ASOS watch as I always do and I love how it matches my nails! The nail polish is Bleu Model from Bourjois’ So Laque collection. I’m wearing my new lips ring and new chain necklace from H&M which I bought last week, the ring was £2.99 I believe and the necklace was £5.99 and they are both still available instore. I bought the necklace to add toughness to some of my more feminine pieces just to balance them out. As you may know I’m currently feeling more grungy looks so this is the perfect necklace to add edge to a girly dress. As usual, (on a sunny day at least) it’s my Claire’s Accessories sunglasses that I have with me as I love them so much and rarely deviate from wearing them in favour of another pair.
I hope this post gave you some insight into how I wear my high street pieces and inspired you to rock some colour this spring! My next OOTD will be my outfit from a day in Calais that we enjoyed while I was with my parents, so keep your eyes peeled for that one, it should be up in the next few days! Let me know what you think of this ensemble, I love hearing your views and as ever you can tweet me @MillieDelacoe too. Until next time…
