Off the shoulder: Topshop (similar) | Jeans: Topshop | Shoes: Vans | Bag: Friends | Necklace: Posh Totty | Sunglasses: H&M
Hasn’t the weather been lovely? I do love April the weather just instantly improves and everything seems happier and oh I just love it! It’s now that time of year where we can start embracing showing bits of our skin again and I thought what better way to grace this weather than with a little off the shoulder number! This top was very popular last year when it hit Topshop and a friend who I’d worked with in the store said I was very lucky to get my hands on it as it had been flying out the door. I was actually hesitant at first to pair the top with blue jeans and only wore it with black last year, but after scouring pinterest (I’ve been reading The Curated Closet) blue jeans actually seemed like a good idea and I actually liked the different shade of blue together, perfect for a spring pop!
Since Christmas I have none stop worn this gorgeous necklace from posh totty that my friend very kindly gifted me! I have wanted a disc necklace since I saw The Little Magpie wear one and this one is perfect, it even has it’s own personal detail of the happiness molecule which I thought was the cutest detail!
Ok, so onto this Curated Closet I spoke about earlier. I had recently torn apart my wardrobe (actually clothing rail) And chucked so many clothes. Took a step back and realised I had no clothes really, or none that I particularly liked. I’d seen as well the book The Curated Closet and bought it as a treat to myself for passing and finishing my final year placement. I started reading it and I am currently under going the 2 week plan of writing down what I’m wearing, the occasion and I added how I feel in it. During these two weeks I already feel I know what I’m missing from my wardrobe and what I want and really thinking about pieces. I’m excited to get buying, but also to carry on reading the book to see what else it has to say! I already love the fact it’s said not to stick to what are known as styles and just to create your own ‘personal’ one as I am very guilty of trying to pick a style already known but then pining over stuff that doesn’t ‘fit’ that category. So I will keep you updated with my journey!
Lastly, Happy Easter everyone! How nice is it to have 4 days off to relax, eat lots of chocolate and be with loved ones! What have been your plans for this 4 day weekend? Let me know what you’ve been getting up to!
