Back In Black









BLACK AND WHITE BELL SLEEVE DRESS: TOPSHOP (similar) / *KURT GEIGER BOOTS: c/o SHOEAHOLICS / ORANGE BAG: RIVER ISLAND (similar)

Bell sleeves are having a bit of a moment in my wardrobe. I just can't get enough of them so when I saw this dress reduced in Topshop I knew it had to be mine. Granted it's probably more appropriate for warmer months considering it's rather thin and a little sheer (the similar one I've linked above is probably more winter appropriate!) but I think teamed with tights and a clashing bag this one will do me just as well. Yep, the black tights are back out *does a little sob*. As much as I love this time of year, black tights are not fun and as soon as I get them back out I just want to tear them up and I know I'm probably not alone in this.




The orange bag is one that I've had for a while now and it's one of my favourites. I love the boxy shape of it and how it's so easy to contrast with monochrome outfits like this. It's not very often I find a bag that's a perfect size; they're always just a bit too small or that bit too big (or absolute gigantic - we all know those bags!). River Island accessories are always on point to be fair though and it's one of those stores I automatically turn to if I'm looking for that bag or that pair of shoes.

  7. This dress suits you so much! I'm not sure the style would sit right on me but i'm more than tempted to give it a go! I love adding bold pops of colours to monochrome outfits with accessories, this look works beautifully together!

  8. I don't follow many fashion bloggers, because I'm not big on fashion. But you are definitely my favourite of them all, and I recently recommended your blog to my friend who has started studying fashion communication. I love your style! I have seen this orange bag around quite a bit and just absolutely love it xx
