Waaaaay to cold to wear this outfit yet - it was actually warm and sunny when I put it on, and I could just about get away with short sleeves and bare legs, but of course the weather flipped. The weather has been a bit ridic recently, like when I was waiting for the train after work yesterday, it thundered, rained, SNOWED????, and then went back to being sunny... all in the space of ten minutes. What is this???? How am I suppose to know what the hell to wear?? Come on weather, stop with your sass and help a gurl out.

I found this body on Boohoo for a bargain price of £12. Yes it's a tad see-through, but really, what can you expect from cheap white material - not a lot! Nothing that can't be sorted with a white strapless bra. Also, this deni midi is in the New Look sale for 9 quid at the mo...

One thing that I always seem to talk about on The Velvet Black is rediscovering long lost, forgotten clothes. All the shit that has been shoved to the back of my wardrobe, hidden under the mess of tops and jumpers in my chest of drawers that is just a tad too small for the amount of clothes I own, or in the case of this eagle print jumper, in the bag of clothes up for sale on my Depop & Vinted. I've had two massive clear-outs in the last 6 months so my wardrobe and drawers are looking pretty tidy and on the 'not so much overflowing' but 'holding the capacity of clothes they were made for' side of things - great for a quick rummage through to put together a last minute outfit (now I can actually find black vest tops without having to tip my whole life onto the floor), but not so great for the rediscovery of lost gems.

I think I saw somebody wearing a similar animal print sweater to mine, and it made me want to dig it out and never let go. Seriously, I used to wear this thing all the time, I think I'm going to end up taking it down from my Depop cos I luv it all over again.

Also, silver flatform trainers anyone??? They were only £25 off of Asos, bargain. I'm gonna be wearing these loads over summer...

Mismatch


Shirt - Vintage
Skirt - Charity Shop

I seem to always go for mismatched prints when I'm lacking outfit inspo. It can look so unique, and I like the contrast between the two prints that don't reeeaaaally go together. I was originally going to play it safe and just throw on a denim jacket. Problem was, the one I have is massive (love oversized denim), and cos the skirt is so big and flowy it just completely drowned me out.

I think with big flowy skirts etc... it looks really flattering to wear something figure hugging on the waist. If it was the middle of summer I'd just go for a crop top - pretty obvs choice, but easy and simple - but it's Spring, and let's face it, Spring in England is still fricking freezing. An oversized shirt tied at the waist seemed like a pretty good alternative.
