Style - Checkmate


So, on Sunday I went off to a gig in Manchester watching Amber Run and a couple of other bands. As normal I left picking what I was wearing til the last minute and rushing around (why break the habit of a life time, hey!) but in the end I was really happy with what I wore and the new purchases I'd made recently. I always find picking an outfit for a gig or event during the Winter hard because I don't want to be absolutely freezing on the way there but I hate carrying around coats and jackets. Anyone else find this?

 So in the end I went for a kinda of girly skirt mixed with a casual boyish shirt so I wasn't too dressy but wasn't super casual either. I always love the look or something boyish teamed with a girly colour or item of clothing. I think it's a really easy to wear look and makes outfits easy to take from day to night. I got this great A-line monochrome skirt from H&M last week and I'm pretty sure it was only around £15. I always have trouble finding skirts that fit my shape well but this fits like a dream. I love the monochrome patterning and the zip pockets adds a nice extra detail. Underneath a wore my beloved Coca-cola tee I got from Primark last year. I'm not usually a fan of brand/slogan tees but being a huge lover of the drink I couldn't resist. Over the top I threw on this great over sized check shirt I bought from Topshop on payday. It's definitely going to be a staple in my wardrobe this Spring and I have so many ideas on how to style it. You'll probably be seeing it a lot in my style posts!

My Fiorelli bag (it's the Fiorelli Mia Grab Mono Stitch and the absolute perfect size!) and Newlook boots have been coming with me everywhere recently. I can't get enough of them!
