Get the Point

Wearing ankle boots c/o Oasap · lace dress from Forever 21 · Topshop moto

Very rarely do I share "going out" outfits, but no doubt this would definitely be one. A cute lace number, cropped moto and patent ankle boots, 3 simple steps that just can't go wrong. On another note, pretty pleased I've not broken my Lent, it's proven an insightful journey thus far and I've given much more thought to what I want vs what I need. Another 6 days to go!

With love~

Flannel Saga

Wearing flannel shirt c/o Trinity Styles · patent wedges from Asos
My chronicle of oversized items continues, sometimes a girl just wants to shelter beneath a huge flannel shirt y'know? This one is great because both its top heaviness, and that it's made of such a substantial wool, means I can wear it as a semi-lightweight jacket of sorts. When donning an oversized piece such as this, I like to balance the look out by keeping what's underneath as streamlined and as form fitting as possible. I also have the alternative to button the whole thing up, belt around the waist, and I have a flannel dress at my fingertips. Of course, standing at a mere 5'1 helps with this instant transitioning. Either way, I'm super chuffed with this oversized flannel from Trinity Styles, it's a perfect piece for warmer spring days when you're just looking to be comfy and covered up.

Lace Trimming

Wearing floral slip dress from Zara · cardigan from Nasty Gal · Deandri Helga platforms · second hand pendant

Lace has been a big part of my wardrobe lately but in very subtle amounts. I find that this small panel of lace gives just the perfect touch of interest to an otherwise standard, floral dress. Wanting to draw out more black, I layered an oversized, bat-wing cardigan for warmth and slouch factor. What do you think? A very happy mother's day to all the mothers in the world!
