Black and blue


Jacket- Oasis     Top- Primark    Jeans- New Look      Bag and sunglasses- Primark     Bracelet- Links of London 









College is SO hectic at the moment, with art and photography deadlines next week, that I haven't had time to take outfit photos. Meaning that I had to make do with taking them in the back garden, rather than out in the streets (luckily for me, there were some rather pretty flowers out!)

First off, how pretty is this top? I picked it up from Primark at the weekend and it was reduced to £3!! I love the scalloped hem, the embroidery, the cut out detail at the back... it is just perfect for summer. I decided to pair it with black jeans and my black, leather jacket as it isn't exactly boiling in England at the moment (especially in the North East!)

I, along with most people, adore Primark, but it can be so hit and miss, it is often like a secondhand shop where you may find one killer piece among lots of crap. Whilst I was there, I also picked up a new bag and sunglasses, as I only have two bags which I use often and this one is so cute for £5. I love the tassels and the faux leather stitching, it would be perfect if I was attending any festivals this year! *sad sigh*

I usually try to add more colour into my outfits, but I am currently lurving the combo of blue, black and white; it makes me feel quite Parisian. What do you guys think?

  1. I'm always a fan of black and white combinations with a splash of a third colour, so I'm definitely loving this outfit! Your top is so cute, and you really can't get much better in price range! And, for what it's worth, I love the background you chose with this outfit. I think it's a great contrast :)

    1. Thank you so much! The top wasn't marked down on the label so when I got it for £3 instead of £8, I was over the moon! x

    1. Thank you! Primark do amazing items sometimes, I think the top looks like something you'd find in Topshop or Zara x

  4. I am in love with your outfit and wow that top is a bargain! So gorgeous.
    I was in the back garden too as very busy with uni work and the weather hasn't been great like you said!
    Plus I have them flowers in my back garden - clematis right? They're gorgeous.
