Hi dolls, I hope you're well! I'm feeling chirpy having been inducted into my new job and I'm getting excited for something different and new! However, I'm not here to ramble about work, I'm here to announce the shocking revelation that I've got off my arse and taken some outfit pictures(!!) I've been pretty much living in my previous work uniform lately and most of my spending money has been going towards the seemingly never-ending task of Christmas shopping. However, this weekend I took the opportunity to style up my cute new DMs for something other than work, so here's what I wore...
Shirt - New Look (old)
Crop Top - American Apparel via Buytshirtsonline*
Jeans - Topshop
Dr Martens - Schuh
Earrings - Beauty Bizarre
Whilst I can only apologise for the distinct lack of Pilates my midriff has encountered recently, there's something fun about wearing a crop top in winter, building those layers back up around it to fend away the startling cold. For me an open checked shirt and high waisted jeans avoided too much skin being on show, but for even less body-confident days I've also been wearing this top layered under dresses and tops to keep warm. The colour is a little bit unusual, and American Apparel clothing is always so soft, stretchy and comfortable.
My shearling DMs are also rather helpful for fending away the cold. I seriously couldn't be happier with these, both in terms of comfort and style.
Finally, I accessorised with a pocket watch necklace and jewellery from my November favourites post. I'm truly enamoured with my Beauty Bizarre jewellery, and I think it finished the outfit perfectly. Find this outfit on Lookbook here...
Ahh it feels good to be back with an outfit post, now I just need some luck finding something for my Christmas party this weekend! Nothing I own is quite right... how is that always the way?! What did you think of this post - are crop tops in winter a yay or a nay for you?
