Outfit | Summer Denim

Thrifted Blouse | Skirt C/O SheIn

Back after a little absence with a simple, casual look. I've had a few things on my mind and occupying my hands, but we'll get to that in a minute. 

I bought this patterned blouse from a thrift shop a few months ago, and while it may not be made up of very summery colours, it's lovely and lightweight. Great for cool summer days, but will definitely need to layer something underneath it during the colder months. The skirt is from SheIn and is the first denim skirt I've had since I was in school. This one, however, is far nicer than any I had as a teenager. Anyone else recall those early and mid 2000s denim skirts with patches and embellishments and frayed hems and pleats and ugh??? Let's never go back there.

As for what's been on my mind -- I'm moving house at the end of July so I've been a little... distracted. All I will say is that it's been an interesting sixteen months here and sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction.

Crossing Lines


Bodysuit C/O Shopbop | Thrifted Leather Belt | Fishnet Tights from ASOS

If you happen to follow my Instagram, it may not be entirely surprising for me to admit I've become slightly obsessed with fishnet tights. Truthfully though, they've always been one of my guilty pleasures when it comes to fashion. Not being very keen on many of the ways they've been styled in recent times, I tend to gravitate towards how they were styled in 50s and 60s. Think Sophia Loren and Brigitte Bardot, rather than 80s music video girls. And to be fair, I haven't incorporated them into many outfits suitable for wear out and about. Working on it, though.

Paired with a jersey bodysuit from Shopbop and a vintage leather belt, I was trying for a retro dance-class vibe here. And what's more simple than a sleeveless black bodysuit? This one is a little loose around the waist, hence the belt, but that's hardly a negative. In my opinion, it makes it much more flattering than if it were skin tight, especially when paired with a form-fitting skirt or high waisted jeans for everyday wear.

A Pop of Pink

 

The Penelope bra and panty set by Agent Provocateur's l'Agent line is made of vibrant soft jersey and mesh and walks the line of sexy vs. girly perfectly.

I think I've previously mentioned my preference of classic colours for lingerie. Black, cream, white, and so on make up the majority of my little collection. I just find them the most flattering. And typically I'm not very keen on wearing pink. I don't think I own any pink clothing outside of an old multicoloured sequinned mini-dress. So, it's safe to say I wouldn't typically seek out pink lingerie. But while browsing Shopbop's lingerie section recently, something about this set quickly caught my eye. It's not a set I would normally go for and I couldn't quite put my finger on what I liked about it, I was just purely drawn to it in some way. This seems to be a recurring theme in my life lately, in matters more meaningful than just picking out something new to wear underneath my clothes.

Now, I don't see myself adding a fuchsia cocktail dress or baby pink coat to my wardrobe anytime soon, I'd still find that all a bit much. Wearing a pretty bright pink lingerie hidden underneath an all black outfit, on the other hand...

Alternatively, underneath a slightly grungy jeans and jean jacket sort of outfit. I'm all about interesting contrasts.

P.S. Shopbop's Friends & Family Event begins today, running till April 9th at 11:59am PST. Get 25% off your order with the code SPRING25! Just in time for a little spring shopping.
