Hooray for the first day of the year where the weather has actually been appealing and the temperature is right for popping out to take outfit photos. Today’s weather has made me smile and has timed well with me finally feeling better after a really bad cold.
Here’s the first outfit post of the year and we found an awesome spot off London Road in Brighton to shoot it and Miz did the honours using my trusty old Nikon D40.
Today’s a simple look is showcasing my favourite pair of jeans from Uniqlo and my new denim shirt from New Look. Some of you may have seen me sporting a rather lovely Hobbs NW3 sailor style denim shirt on other occasions, but since putting on some weight I’ve had to pick up something a little larger in size.
These jeans are the only style I wear at the moment, recommended to me by Strawberry Blonde, they come in a huge selection of colours and styles with plenty of choice in leg length and waist size too and all under £30.The New Look denim shirt was only £17.99 and it’s lovely soft cotton with metal pop stud fastening, technically it’s a full length sleeve on here but being a lanky girl, the sleeves are a tad short for me. A simple outfit like this is perfect for showcasing cute accessories. My orange coat is also from New Look, which I picked up in a sale before Christmas, I really struggle with coat shopping so was delighted when Miz spotted this one for me.
My pom pom headband was a sale purchase from ASOS last year, although you can find similar ones on Etsy, the pastel beaded necklace is from the awesome Peppermint Puff and the watermelon brooch from Hello Dodo on Etsy. The Hello Kitty earrings are from eBay and the jelly ring is from my own shop on Etsy.
My Hello Kitty Vans are something that I saw when they launched and decided they were too girly to splurge on, but when I spotted them on Vinted for half the price, I thought they were worth picking up. I’m now living in this style of Vans, so comfortable! I think that’s everything covered. Massive thanks to Miz for taking the amazing photos, which I love. You can check out his band on Facebook to show your appreciation! 😉
