Happy Saturday, everybody!
This is the first weekend that my boyfriend and I have spent together since February, so we’re trying to make the most of it!
Last night we had a lovely meal and drinks at Frankie and Benny’s (I might have been a little tipsy!) Then today we went into town, did some shopping and saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier at the cinema. If you haven’t seen it yet then make sure you do so! It’s a good one.
I thought I’d throw on something super casual this morning; when I know that I’m going to the cinema, I tend to steer towards the comfort factor more than anything. I don’t understand it when people get massively dressed up just to sit in the dark for two or three hours (unless it’s a first date and you want to make a good first impression!)
I personally prefer to dress down so I can curl up on my seat, hence this OOTD!
My sister bought me these ikat printed leggings for my birthday last September and I thought it was about time that I dragged them out of the back of my wardrobe. After all, monochrome prints are hot for SS14 after being seen on designer catwalks such as Holly Fulton and Erdem (read my full trend report here).
As the leggings are quite fussy and make a statement all on their own, I thought I’d pair them with my new slouchy grey knit jumper in order to keep the colour palette classic.
I then added my new sandal-boots, or sandoots as people might start calling them. I bought these babies in the Topshop sale last month (check out the haul post here) and I’m head over heels in love with them. I adore how unique they are as a concept for a shoe; they’re a cross between sandals and boots, therefore great footwear for the Spring period.
I then thought I’d add a bit of shine through my metallic Fossil bag and silver jewellery – isn’t it amazing how accessories can dress up and complete an outfit?! Without accessories, I’m convinced that my outfits would look incredibly drab.
I also wore the watch that used to belong to my Grams. It has a beautiful white leather strap, which complimented the creamy-white hue of my printed leggings.
The final touch was my black leather jacket – a staple for any girl’s wardrobe and perfect to combat those chilly April winds.
