Prep Talk

I am a big fan of layering, even in the summer months. When I was shooting this look is was sunny and bright but there was a bit of a chill in the air so I quickly made the decision to layer up my look and I really like the result. Blue is one of my favourite colours, boy that I am, probably because it has calming connotations which I need more of and the fact that it matches my eyes which is always a bonus! The denim shirt was a pleasant surprise in my local ASDA store, browsing around the George section and I spotted it and instantly needed it. It's become a go-to staple in my wardrobe.

The jeans, I bought last summer, are from Next and the layering boyfriend sweatshirt is from a fave online store of mine, ASOS. I think if you're going to pick a darker colour to layer, like this sweatshirt, it's good to go for a paler colour to wear it with. This goes for the summer months anyway, in winter you can get away with teaming it with black jeans and still look fab.

The bag and shoes - both Primark are new(ish) additions to my accessories collection. The shoes are amazingly comfy and have a strap around the ankle - can't really see it here - and I love the colour, but if brown isn't really your thing then they also come in white and black too! Yay! Last but not least, my necklace. As I've said in a previous post I love a good novelty jewellery piece - and this hare necklace is no exception. A great little gem to add to this outfit.

  1. Personally I find it a bit too hot to layer in summer, but I do say the outlook of it is good. I love the blue colours here, and that bag is super awesome! It looks very brand new as well... such a lovely white ^.^ Keep up these great OOTD's.
