Quick OOTD : 18/09/18 Little Girl Blue

Tuesday 18 September 2018

M&S Sunglasses (Current Sale in store - yes I bought another pair)
COS Funnel Neck Jumper (SS18 but similar here)
H&M Skirt (SS18 but black version here)

I think my favourite colour is blue.


It's quite easy to recreate this look if you have similar components in your wardrobe. The idea is just block colour but I like the light relief with the different colour trainers (my Novestas are pale grey). 

1. The M&S navy cashmere hoodie is a bit luxe - but there are plenty of cotton mix hoodies in the stores for all kinds of budgets. You might already have one in your wardrobe.

2. The M&S blush trainers. The white version of these with the blue trim sold out really quickly and understandably. They looked good and they had more than a nod to Veja with the navy side detail. But did you spot this blush suede version? Kind of subtle but with enough punch to make you look again. I had the ginger coloured Vans last year (still have them actually), and this is like the pink equivalent of when you want to do that "pop of colour" which people so like to say.

3. The navy skirt. This could have been a boring navy skirt but to give it a bit of oomph, it has the front zip detail. Too much for you? A simple navy pleated one is also a good option like this one

4. And the bum bag. Sorry, I mean, leather belt bag. This white one is rather chic don't you think?

Uniqlo Jumper

Sometimes it's good to keep your eye out in the Next Clearance section when you come across a gem of a tablecloth.


Last Note :

  • The link to the skirt is to the page where the skirt can be found. When it's Next Clearance, the links are a bit all over the place.
  • The skirt has an asymmetric hem where the front dips quite a bit longer at the front. I had to have this bit nipped a tiny bit so it didn't look over long on me. On a taller person (taller than 5ft 1), it should be no problem.
  • Hardly a crease after a days wear - that's good.
  • True to size I would say - I'm wearing a size UK10 which is what I am and it's a very comfortable 10. 
  • I have it on good word that checks and asymmetric hems are in. #yay
  • It has pockets. Enough said.
