Square Eyes

Before my holiday I decided to innocently pop into my local Topshop totally unaware of what an amazing sale they had going on. Big mistake. I picked up quite a few summer tops and this was one of my favourites, not your average summer crop top which made it stand out to me. A simple black and white palette but with this super busy square pattern and small zip to the back was right up my street. When I shot this look there was a little bit of a chill in the air so instead of short shorts I dragged out my favourite jeans of the moment (they are insanely comfy) and as they're high waisted they worked really well for this look.

Socks and jelly shoes seemed the right footwear choice for this look and I think it adds something a little different into the mix. Who thought socks and sandals would now be a fashion statement rather than a faux pas? Jesus would be happy...ahem. These glitter ones are a larger version of the ones I had when I was a little girl so I instantly fell in love with them for the nostalgia factor. The sunnies come with me wherever I go and I will have had them almost a year now so they've held up pretty well and the necklace adds a little bit of a break up of all the monotone and blue going on. It's just a comfortable, effortless look that I know I'll wear again and again. And that's the whole point really, isn't it?
