I'm Wearing: Culottes

Rewind 6 months and never did I think I'd be one for wearing culottes. I'd always written them off, thinking someone as short as me couldn't pull them off. I was wrong.

They're amazing, not to mention ridiculously comfortable.  This pair is from Topshop, and my collection is forever increasing in size now. I'm still not entirely sure if they actually suit me or not, but they're so comfy that I really don't care. 

I'm Wearing: Shiny Shoes

I'm a big fan of minimal, monochrome dressing. A pair of black jeans and a white shirt/t-shirt/jumper, is right up my street.

After promising myself a pair of silver shoes for a good couple of years now, I finally settled on this ASOS pair. Whilst I may be quite a 'safe' dresser, at least these shoes brighten up an otherwise plain outfit. 

I'm Wearing: Cream & Blue

I've been trying to figure out a way to do my outfit posts for what feels like forever now. Around a year or so ago, I realised that I hated posing for outfit photos, and didn't really have anyone to take them for me anyway. I'm definitely no super cool fashion blogger, but sometimes I wear nice things, and they deserve sharing. So now I'm giving the ever popular flat lay style a go. Let's see how long I can keep it up for.

I got this coat for my birthday a couple of weeks back and, would you believe it, it's actually M&S! It's from the petite range, so it the perfect length and fit for me. The dress is French Connection, via ASOS, from last summer. I forgot I had it for a while, but I think the blue goes nicely with the cream of my coat and boots. I'm braving this with no tights, but I'm still not sure it's really quite warm enough. Come on May, sort yourself out! 

Details: Did someone say trainers?

On Saturday I made the conscious decision to introduce more colour into my life. I love a good monochrome look but, according to my mother, there are only so many grey jumpers allowed in one's wardrobe.

I came across this jumper/sweatshirt in Zara (I can't find it online yet) and fell in love. It's not necessarily my usual style, but it's my two favourite colours (after grey, obviously) and so it came home with me.

In keeping with things that aren't my usual style, the other week I purchased a pair of trainers. Shock horror. I'm the kind of person for whom trainers never see the light of day. I do own a pair for the gym, but considering I've not stepped foot in one for almost a year, they don't get a lot of wear.

Never have I looked at my ankles in such detail.

I came across these ones whilst I was out looking for loafers. These are definitely not loafers, but I really liked them. Me. I liked trainers. Who'd have thought?! The cork heel definitely played a part in swaying me. Plus, y'know, they're grey.

Don't worry. Next week I'll be back to chelsea boots and breton stripes.
