Denim Dress & Skinny Scarf









DRESS - MISS SELFRIDGE // SCARF - NEW LOOK VIA ASOS // BOOTS - KURT GEIGER // ROLL NECK - PULL & BEAR VIA ASOS

Another seventies inspired outfit from me today, and one that i've been wearing non-stop recently. You've probably seen this dress 0.23455 million times on other bloggers by now, but I personally love seeing how different people style the same item so I hope you feel the same. This has been one of my go-to looks since I bought this dress a few weeks back. I've been wearing it with roll necks, stripey tops, scarves, on it's own.. the list goes on and i'm sure it will remain one of my fave pieces into summer. I spotted this scarf on ASOS last week and it was in my basket and ordered before I even knew what I had done. This is what my current 10 minute morning commute turns me into! I dread to think what i'm going to be like when I start my hour long commute next week!

Denim is making a huge comeback this season, but not just the usual jeans/shorts and shirts, think double denim, even triple if you dare, whilst frayed hems and embelishment will win you extra style points. My denim obsession is getting out of hand, next on my list is theeee most beautiful denim coat and a pair of denim culottes.. someone please delete my ASOS saved items as i've already mentally spent my wages waaaay before payday!

Seventies Suede









SKIRT - H&M (IN STORE) // TOP - ZARA // BOOTS - KURT GEIGER // BAG - MANGO // SCARF - OLD


Hello!

It's safe to say it's been a pretty manic/exciting month! I can't believe it's been over a month since I last posted, I did such a good job of sticking to my new years resolutions.... NAAAT. I got some exciting news a few weeks back that i'm so excited to share with you all, I have landed my absolute dream job and will be starting next week so i'll be filling you in very soon. So my only excuse is that with all of the interview prep, nerves and finally celebrations when I found out that I got the job, blogging hasn't really been at the top of the to do list. Still, I know I say this allllll the time but I hope I can get back into some kind of blogging routine now that the stress is over.

Anyway, let's talk about the seventies. When I first realised that the seventies era was back with a bang for the spring/summer season, I have to admit I was a bit sceptical. When I think of the seventies the first thing that springs to my mind is flares, and much like the culotte trend of last season which I was never brave enough to tackle, flares are up there on that list. But when you think about it more, there is so much more of this trend to try be it suede, fringing, denim or even platform shoes.. the list goes on. Suede has to be one of my fave trends for this season; skirts, jackets, shoes.. I just can't seem to get enough, so when I spotted this skirt in H&M I knew it had to be mine. I've also become a little bit obsessed with scarves and this one was stolen borrowed from my mums wardrobe. I spotted quite a few neckerchiefs back at LFW so thought i'd incorporate one into this outfit. I'm desperate for a Celine Trio bag, but as it's way out of my price range this Mango dupe is perfect for now, and it was in the sale.. thank you very much Mango!

What's your thoughts on suede and the 70s trend? Is it something you're wearing?
