Moon Print


Shorts - Miss Selfridge
Halterneck Top - Missguided
Boots - H&M (Old)

This two piece was literally the biggest impulse buy. I never usually buy anything without looking at the price first, but I saw this, grabbed it, and just bought it without thinking. I was in the biggest spending mood ever, probs why. It was unexpectedly expensive, and I probably wouldn't have bought it if I knew the price, but I love it either way. I think the paisley print is quite 70's reminiscent, which most likely drew me to it.

It also pairs up perfectly with this crop top, which I've just discovered is now £8 in the sale - damn it, should have waited a more few days to buy it... I love moons and moon prints. Basically, if it has a moon on it, it's going to become mine at some point. The only issue I have with this top is that it's slightly see-through (although, kind of too be expected from a cheap white top). I usually use boob tape with backless tops, but that was a bit of a no-go because bits of tape showing through is not a good look. I ended up picking up one of those backless stick on bras from Primark - man, I hate those things. It constantly feels like it's going to fall off with every movement I make. Boob tape is so much better!
