Black & Denim

Anyone that knows me could tell you I basically live in all black, maybe I might venture out into greys or white occasionally but black, and maybe some denim, is pretty much where it’s at – so what better outfit to go with for my first outfit post.

Denim jackets seem to be having a real moment right now. Which is ideal since they’re practically the perfect spring jacket. I’m loving seeing them styled off the shoulder or thrown on over the arms. I’d say a denim jacket could definitely make the list for wardrobe essentials.

Ideally, I wanted to style this look with black vans which have been on my ‘Need to buy’ list since Christmas but I still haven’t got round to it, so in the end, I wore converse and they do the job just the same.

But can we just talk about the detail on this top for a minute..? I’m obsessed. Shout out to my mum since I can’t actually take credit for finding this one, she spotted it while we were in New Look at the weekend and bought it to me since she knew it would be something I’d love. Its the first thing I’ve bought in New Look in years so I totally wouldn’t have thought to look there usually, that’s what mums are for I guess.

  • Fab outfit! I literally live in all black, and my home is mainly grey so I don’t do colour very often! I also think the choker finishes the outfit perfectly. X
