Today we have had our first whiff of summer it seems, it’s still very chilly out, but I’ve had to crack out the sunglasses when driving because that pesky sun has made a little appearance in the sky. I dunno about you, but I’m kinda sick of dressing like I’m allergic to colours at the moment, and can’t wait to crack out some lighter, brighter shades over the next few months! I have realised my little faux pas with my collage below in the form of a collared dress with a collar necklace, but screw it. Let’s live on the edge!
This little outfit of treasures can be found at New Look,
which is kind of one of my favourite high street shops. I think a lot of people overlook it sometimes in favour of either Topshop or Primark, but New Look
meets is all in the middle I think. They often have some really quirky little pieces in and their prices are so reasonable. I also like their wide fit shoe range as my feet are ever such an odd shape (should I maybe put that information in a ’50 facts about me’ blog post? Hmmm). I am loving the idea of peep toe shoes and cut out sandals with tights at the moment, I know this goes against fashion rules, but maybe that’s why I’m so keen? I think it’s a contrast thing as I’m yearning for some thick black tights with mustard yellow shoes similar to the style of the ones above right now. New Look have a brilliant range of dresses too, from super casual budget numbers to some fancier party dresses
. I will have to pay them a visit as I rarely leave empty handed. I suppose it’s another little known fact that I have such a soft spot for New Look huh? Especially now I’ve just noticed they’re stocking Yumi dresses too, ahhh my weakness! What’s your ‘favourite not very often celebrated’ high street store? I’ve been known to have a penchant for Peacocks and Barratts in the past, both of which I find people don’t even think of when shopping around!
