Sometimes I feel like my outfit posts aren’t a true representation of how I look the majority of the time. For one day a week you get to see something that has more thought than 5 out of 7 days worth of outfits. This week I thought I’d introduce you to my go to outfit. This is a combination that I don’t think looks as good on camera as it makes me feel – is that weird? IDK…
I picked up my a-line top from Cos last year and have never let go of it. It’s black and so slouchy i’ll probably keep it before during and after I have children (thinking ahead here) as the quality is amazing, but the fit works so that it sits right no matter what size or shape you are. You can’t really see if for the leather jacket, but at the moment it’s rather roomy, and was worn on this particular day for three reasons: 1) I was going out for dinner (no worries on a food baby sighting in this one) 2) I’d had a curry the night before (so I had an already existing food baby) and 3) I was a little bit not on form after getting in at 5:30am and this top always makes me feel a little more “together”.
It’s long enough to almost be a dress on me, but just not quite, so I threw it on over tights and a bodycon skirt. I have a new leather jacket from Dortothy Perkins to replace my old Miss Selfridge one, it’s slightly more fitted which makes my outfits look a little more dressy, so that came along too. My boots are from Miss Selfridge, and they’re the only part of this outfit which I’m not 100% on. I’m not sure they do anything for elongating your legs, so I think I’ll be sticking to my ASOS and Topshop faves next time I wear this combination.
