what I wore today: khaki and stripe


well this is a pretty simple outfit; sometimes I like to keep it clean and then add a blingtastic amount of jewellery to balance it out aha! I love my comfy basic tees; I have five of these topshop ones in different colours that I've somehow collected over the past year! I often just wear them with my jeans and a blazer (and also with my pj's on lazy weekends) ...definitely my lazy fashion option!

this khaki colour is the latest one I've purchased and slightly over sized- perfect for the post christmas bulge aha! I picked up this h&m striped skirt in the sale for  a bargain price of £7 and I'm hoping it will be a summer staple in my wardrobe this year! 

I adore my bag; I'm a sucker for a little bit of fashion novelty! it was actually a christmas present from my sister but I've found an identical one from one of my favourite shops chelsea doll when I was looking through their site last week.
