Every few months I have this feeling of being in a style rut. My workplace doesn’t really have a dress code so anything goes, which one hand is great as I’m not restricted but on the other, it means I wear the same item from my wardrobe on repeat. Last year, I posted weekly blog posts on what I’d worn every day of that week in a bid to mix it up and fall back in love with old items in my wardrobe. But, the new months and with Spring around the corner, I felt it was time for a Primark trip to snap up a couple of new items to breathe new life into my everyday outfits.
Two trends that I’m loving this year are embroidery and gingham. So I decided to get in on the action with this gorgeous black pleather skirt, complete with intricate emboidery detail. I love the colour and it’s a lovely fit – perfect for tights and black converse with a roll neck jumper or an oversize shirt tucked in. It’s on the short side but I’d love to wear this in summer too with sandals…we’ll see.
Next up is the gingham trend. I’ve admired this trend from afar and I can’t wait for payday so I can invest a gingham midi dress. We’re off to Barcelona in August and I think this cute peplum top with neck tie detail will look lovely with denim shorts in the evening.
And, finally I couldn’t not buy these beautiful lilac heels. They’re so me and I love the closed toe. I don’t have any shoes like this currently.I can’t wait to wear them in summer with a midi skirt.
