Crochet and pastels


crochet top c/o Chicwish (link here)
pants: Miss Selfridge
horse bag: ASOS
shoes: Sportsgirl
cross necklace: Low Luv 

I think I'm re-discovering my boho phase which I used to have years ago! I'm starting to think it was never just another one of those fleeting, temperamental trends that grabbed my attention only because it was the hot thing at the time. I remember people could look at the clothes I picked out and say that it was so 'me'; my style being defined by long, wide sleeves and baggy dolman or batwing tops. I was all over anything with crochet or lace as well! Now I'm happy to be reliving a style I used to be so smitten with :)

This crochet top from Chicwish is really unique and gorgeous- mostly because the crochet detail is a bit more complex and interesting than others! It's also over a sheer layer to show off the contrast of the crochet pattern against the skin. I wore a cropped, nude top inside but you can also wear a basic singlet, or even just a (nude-coloured) bra underneath. On the day I was wearing this, a mum and her daughter actually approached me in a store and said they really liked my top! Apparently they saw me from afar and they noticed it, and then they spotted me later in the same shop and got to ask where I got the top from :) Haha it's such a silly thing, but it makes me so happy when random strangers on the street pay me a tiny compliment like that!

I've also been super busy at work lately so sorry that my blog posting has been a bit slow! I'm kind of really enjoying how busy it is though :) I'm having to stay back late as well because of all the work, which is pretty cool lol as weird as that sounds. I think I thrive on stress, pressure, and deadlines- still can't get the uni student out of me lol!

  3. What a lovely top! I love your pastel jeans too! I've been thinking of getting a lilac pair myself :)
    It's great when strangers in the street ask where you get something from! Though I'm not brave enough to ask strangers myself where they got items from...
