Outfit Of The Day: let's play smart casual

halloo, beautiful people!

this is the outfit i wore when i went out for lunch with a side order of shopping after ;)! hehe. i am in love with this top, and mentioned it in this post. i didn't think it was worth the price so stepped back into Topshop to return it.. but found myself walking out. i couldn't do it! it's simple but such a statement. AND THE COLLAR! i love it!

by wearing the top and skirt, it helps to hide my problem areas that i hate due to the different materials overlapping. the top is cropped but loose, in comparison to a bodycon dress which would highlight the areas more! i usually love wearing black, but this top stands out with the block colour, whilst allowing me to maintain my love affair with black. woohoo! i love that it's smart but casual enough to wear in the daytime without looking too formal :)!

i kept my make up simple and was inspired by Angelina Jolie in The Tourist for my hair. by the way, i totally recommend the film if you haven't watched it - absolutely amazing and her clothes are beautiful! and her hairstyles, makeup, jewellery... 

the brogues were actually from Primark for £8!!! what a bargain?! i did spend ages deciding whether to get them due to that being an extra £8 on top of the amount i spent that day.. but after walking into Topshop and seeing a pair nearly the exact same for £30.. it was mine. i love them! they're very, very comfortable to walk in as it's slightly padded and has an adorable floral print inside :)
