I've got a date with the night...

River Island crop top & skull print cape // Dorothy Perkins trousers // H&M sandals // Primark necklace

How amazing is this River Island skull cape!? It's one of those items that I fell head over heels for online and immediately NEEDED in my life... and then had no idea what to wear it with. It's been safely tucked away in my wardrobe ever since it arrived on my doorstep about 6 months ago. Every now and then I take it out for a stroke (anyone else constantly stroke furry clothes in shops?) and then pop it back on the hanger... until now! I chucked it on over my new crop top as it's really not crop top weather and personally I think it really completes the outfit.

The crop top was a treat to myself on Friday's shopping trip, the cute bows at the back closed the deal! I was slightly terrified by the crop top trend when it 1st appeared (I'm not one of those stick thin hipster types that look just as comfy in a crop top as they do in PJs) but after my 1st attempt at the look I was feeling a bit braver about it all. I much prefer them styled with high waisted items so only your high-driff is on display so I wasn't as keen on having my belly button on show - I spent most of the evening sucking it in and made Gordon take these photos before we had supper! [Next time your other half moans about taking your outfit pictures, offer them steak. This makes them much happier to oblige!] This outfit would look a million times better on a size 6/8 babe but I don't think I look completely horrendous here....Maybe I'm dillusional.....xx

P.S - Yes I did wear them same trousers 2 days in a row. Don't judge me.


  1. Love the top! I also love the yeah yeah yeahs! :D


  2. Well I personally think you look amazing! I love the River Island cape, I am really liking what River Island have in their stores at the moment. Following you now :)! xx


  3. YAY! YOU GOT A CROP TOP/BRALET! And you look sooo fabulous, it really suits you and makes you look oh so slim. You don't need to suck in I bet! Jealous!! I love the wine coloured pants and the cape, oh I love it is so quirky! Can't resist a little gothic/boho allure! And I LOVE this song.
