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.
