My First OOTD

So I've been wanting to blog about my chosen OOTD's for quite some time now, but I think it's rather obvious that I quite like a bit of procrastination! 
But without any further a due, here is my first OOTD. 

Last Wednesday I got up an dressed ready to go to my lecture, but surprise, surprise, in the last minute I decided that it wasn't actually all that important. However, I do suffer from an irrational fear of wasting a perfectly good outfit on a bad day. That Wednesday was not going to be that day! So, I made my way into city & made a quick trip into both MAC and Lush. Hauls for these beauty buys will soon be on there way, hold tight.

Quite a warm day, I opted for a light bit of layering. The layering of a shirt under a tee rather than a jumper  means you're still warm but not quite as restricted and means less bulkiness.

It can sometimes be quite hard to create an outfit that not only looks good but is comfy too. This look was perfect for just that as jeans are almost every ones' go-to, easy to wear and comfort item, but I think that the rips in the denim add more texture to the outfit rather than just simple indigo denim.
I love me a good accessory and it's only natural that I have key items that I choose to literally live in. Both belt and necklace are one of those. Though a mere basic black belt, the gold buckle is another simple way to add detail to an outfit. As is the gold rope chain; heavy and more a tarnished shade, it's perfect for the grungy look.
My bag? I literally love it and use it for almost every outfit ever!
And my hat? As I mentioned in the afore fashion haul blog, the neon trend is one of favourites for coming spring/summer and I thought it a nice way to inject some colour into my outfit.

  1. LOVE this. Cannot believe those jeans are from M&S. You did a great job of ripping them too.
