Outfit Post // Denim Days

This weekend me and my boyfriend had quite a bit of time spare, so I decided to make the most of it and get him to re-invent himself as a joiner-turned-photographer to take some outfit pictures for me,  and to be honest, I'm really impressed with how they turned out. He was directing me left right and centre haha! As the sun was (sort of) shining, I decided to get my pasty legs out, and I opted for an outfit that is quite smart-casual, and could easily be dressed up or down and taken from day to night, depending on how you accessorize it.
Leather Jacket // Miss Selfridge (similar here)     Denim Shift Dress // Primark     Clutch // Primark     Sandals // Boohoo 






I bought this Denim/Pleather shift dress from Primark last year, I think it cost about £12, and while it's not the best fitting dress ever, (thanks to the sleeves seemingly being made for somebody with extremely wide arms) if I add a leather jacket on top then it loses the 'masculine shoulders' touch and looks a lot more feminine. The shift style is one of my favourites, and is perfect to wear for a long day out because it's so comfy and flattering for when I've had a bigger-than-usual lunch.  I also love this dress because of the retro 90's feel, the bright blue shade takes me back to my younger dungaree-wearing days, and it's also a slightly faded denim which is a nice touch, and also helps to enhance the shape of what might otherwise be a pretty shapeless dress, 

I decided to keep things completely minimal with no jewellery and just this black clutch bag- another Primark bargain I bought last year. I also want to take a quick moment to apologise for the state of my nail polish in the clutch bag picture- I just completely forgot to paint them! Finally I wanted to show off some gorgeous sandals I got from work (the same pair are available from Boohoo here). They are a lot chunkier than any other sandals I own, but I absolutely love the buckled gladiator straps, and the block heel and slight platform means that while they add a bit of height, they are so comfy to wear! I can't wait to use them to death this summer!

I hope you've enjoyed my new style of photos for today's outfit, now the weather is a bit nicer I'm determined to try and get more like this rather than the usual rubbish quality indoor ones I take using my tripod!

So how are you wearing denim this season? Have you got a pair of chunky sandals you love...?x

  5. I love your dress. I'll have to see if Primark has any similar dresses like it this year. I do love Primark but sometimes their sizing can be a bit off. I'm now following you on BL, please check out my blog and if you like what you see, follow me too :)
