OUTFIT | UNUSUAL SUSPECT

Mango leather jacket (similar), ZARA dress (similar), Adidas Stan Smith trainers, Mango bag

This outfit might not be something you would expect on me. Of course the leather jacket and the Stan Smith trainers are a trademark of mine, but this dress is very unlike me. Like I said in yesterday's post I am creating a weakness for all things crochet/boho-y. This dress for example gives me a very feminine vibe and it is very feminine. I wanted to emphasize the femininity by also wearing a red lip. I decided to go for my favourite red lipstick from Sleek called Russian Roulette which has been a little dupe for the NARS Jungle Red I plan on buying when I'm in Sephora this summer.. To finish it off I added some kind of boy-ish vibe into the outfit by wearing my leather jacket. It makes it look like me.

OUTFIT | LONG GONE

ZARA top (similar), Noisy May shorts, Monki bag, Forever21 heels (similar)

I think I might have hit that phase of summer where I am starting to like all the crochet kinds of things in store. Crochet can be quite expensive from time to time and I don't really understand why as it usually doesn't contain that much fabric as a jumper. But I love crochets and one of my friends, who has this perfect beachy/boho summer style totally got me into this. So all I've been looking at lately is crochet, and I might have found a few items I absolutely adore. I found this top in the Zara sale and thought it was so cute. It's perfect for summer, but I can totally wear this during autumn with jeans. I feel like now that I invested in way too many basics, I can finally start getting a few other items. This item might just be the first of many things.

DIARY | THE SUNDAY POST

Sacha shoes

I have been looking for a pair of kinda manly shoes for such a long long time now and every time I came across a pair, there was always one thing off with the shoes. It just wasn't right. Until my eye fell on these Sacha shoes. When Sacha sent me their summer gift box they included lots of goodies such as SPF, a lip balm, lots of gorgeous accessories and a gift card from Sacha. So I immediately picked these up and waited for them to arrive. Me being excited me, I immediately started shooting outfit photos with these shoes, but I think these deserve their own little post. I can't wait to wear them more and I already have so many outfits with these shoes planned and planted inside my head!

OUTFIT | WAY TO GO

Primark jacket (similar), ZARA cami (similar), ASOS jeans (similar), SACHA shoes*

Ahhh boyfriend jeans. My favourite jeans to wear during summer. They're breezy and they look good with trainers or heels. I decided to go for my new Sacha shoes instead to give of a bit more of a boyish look. Because all of this could make me look like a man, I decided to pair it with a cami top with a v-neck to bring back a little bit of feminine back into the outfit. 

At first I found it very difficult to combine boyfriend jeans. Everyone knows that I am not the skinniest person in the world and I also am not the tallest person in the world. Both things are usually needed for rocking boyfriend jeans. But I am starting to find different ways to wear boyfriend jeans and start to enjoy the look of them on me a lot more nowadays. So I am hoping to prove whoever thought that boyfriend jeans can only be worn by skinny and tall people wrong.
