Styling Up Chartreuse

You know what bugs me about S/S fashion? It drops in the stores in all of it’s pretty, colourful glory – but it drops in January and you’re literally unable to wear it for months. Who wants to buy in advance? Not me… I always have to find a way to where it immediately and in the heart of the Winter it can sometimes be difficult to pass it off, particularly if it’s some kind of floral maxi dress, plus I always want to wear it with my beloved Oakley sunglasses. Lucky for me, I picked up these straight leg trousers from Primark’s SS17 range that just hit stores, and straight away I knew exactly how I was going to wear them the following day. It might be winter, but oh my god am I bored of dark tones already. Navy? Over it. Pass me a brighter palette before I lose my mind!

Culottes are basically the life and soul of my wardrobe so i’m happy to see they’re still going strong season to season – here’s to hoping their glory days aren’t over anytime soon!

In other news, i’m definitely getting ahead of myself ditching the tights so soon into February, but hey ho – life’s about optimism, no?

Last month, I headed to the Northern Quarter to meet the ultimate babes girl bossin’ over at Ego for a bit of a tipple and dinner and had the best night catching up with some old faves as well as meeting some new. But best of all, I headed home with a bag full of some incredible shoes and these boots were one of the pairs I was so kindly gifted on the night. The girls on the team had me down to a T with their surprise gifting! Sometimes, the more ‘out-there’ shoes can be daunting to style, but even simply styling them up with a shirt dress as easy as this one can tick the boxes. What outfit isn’t complete with a thrown on leather jacket?

I picked up this shirt dress from Missguided on boxing day from their SS17 range and was obsessed with it’s sleeves and non-fuss style overall. Fluting here there and everywhere can literally leave you looking like you just rolled out of the 1500’s so less is definitely more with this trend.
