Bringing Out The Autumn Knit

2018, Fashion, Outfit Post, Uncategorized

 I swear I open every single blog post with ‘long time no see’. But to say that again would be correct. I apologise for not posting, my talent is being unorganised and lazy. I’m back at school now which is truly riveting… I’m thinking of maybe posting some easy sixth form looks on here but then got scared that people from school would judge me. (As we can see, being in school makes me overthink everything. However in terms of mental health I’m doing good. But that’s more for another day.)
But instead of me rambling on giving a life update. I’m here to share my new favourite jumper with you lovely bunch. Because clothes are the most important thing! My sister also took some of these pics on my film camera too and I’m actually quite pleased with how they look. Not the best focus but hey ho, least it makes my face a bit blurrier…!

You may recognise the jumper I’m wearing if you saw it on my twitter. (Follow me over @luxekate or I’ll come for you whilst you’re sleeping xo). As I put a poll on there whether or not the jumper was worth buying. My indecisive arse can’t decide by itself. (And yes most of the time I put polls on so I have an excuse to buy something.) The majority of votes was yes which I’m very pleased about as I’m IN LOVE with this jumper. I get slight grandma vibes from it, my Nan did say she was a big fan of it which I don’t think I’ve ever heard her say that to me before..!

This beauty of a jumper is from Urban Outfitters (shop here) and was a bargain for me. It’s sold for £48 but I bought for £30 as I had a £10 off voucher, student discount and the remains of a gift card. Which I was pretty chuffed with as I’ve been very good at spending too much money recently… It’s primarily a mustard knitted jumper but there is many colours knitted in as well. And I’m just so obsessed. It’s fab quality and so warm and I shall literally be living in this.

I paired my knitted jumper of dreams with my Topshop White Wide Leg jeans. I adore the shape and fit of these jeans. The waist is tight fitting and then the legs are a wide fit. I love how they aren’t tight fitting on the legs but still have fabulous shape. And I love the white against the jumper. I’m slowly becoming to prefer my white jeans over my blue. Although I’m such a clumsy idiot so I’m sure it won’t be long until I have spilt something on these jeans by the next time I wear them. (If you want to see more of these jeans then you can see how I styled them here.)
And of course I wore my black belt with a chunky gold buckle which is my mums from the 80’s. My all time fave belt. I will literally pass this onto my children because it is the best belt to exist. My family heirloom shall be a belt…

And as usual I wore my Old Skool Vans and my fave Guess One Shoulder Rucksack. (I give this bag a different name every time I mention it). This Guess bag is such a staple for me. It was my mums from many many years ago, just like the belt. She gave me this Guess bag years ago when I used to like to dress up as a child. But I would never dream of wearing it out because I thought it was a weird bag. Now I can’t take it off!! It’s actually super practical as well as it fits my camera in unlike my other bags!

I’m so in love with this outfit. Super simple I know but sometimes less is more! And I shall be back with some more fashion posts. I’m feeling inspired at the moment and really want to do some cools things. So look out for that.

The Summer Staple Denim Dress

2018, Fashion, Outfit Post, Uncategorized

I’ve been loving the summer weather at the moment. I have already successfully burned myself as me being me put suncream on after I had been sunbathing. But I actually made it out of the house to spend the day in town with my sister. We went to the Double Fantasy, John & Yoko exhibition in the Museum of Liverpool which was amazing. I would definitely recommend if anyone is around as I found it so interesting and it’s been put together so well. But before I go off on one about John Lennon, I loved my outfit so though I would share with you all.

I’d been on the hunt for a staple denim dress and found this beauty from Urban Outfitters. It’s their ‘denim button-through pinafore dress‘ and I’m in love with it. It’s a simple dress but you can really dress it up or down. I wore it simply on it’s own as I find it’s one of them things that does enough on it’s own! But wearing a top underneath works really well as well so perfect for the colder days!
The fit of the dress is gorgeous as well. It’s not too short either as it passes the fingertip rule so I feel really comfortable in it. I did have the get a medium as the small was too tight on my boobs. This makes the waist a bit looser but it the heat the looser fit is much more comfortable. It came to £45 to buy with my student discount which I think is an alright price as it is amazing quality and will definitely last me for a long time!

To add a pop of colour I wore my Yellow Cross-body from Zara with the detailed strap. I love the yellow against the denim dress. And when wearing the dress on it’s own, I love to add a contrasting colour to give more detail in your outfit.
(And if you’re ever wearing a plain bag and need a bit of colour then tie a scarf that suits your outfit on your bag! Something that jazzes up your outfit so easily.)

On my feet I had the debate of wearing sandals or my Converse. However I stuck with my trusty One Star Pinstripe Converse. These shoes are my favourites, they’re a simple white trainer with a star on each side with small blue and red pinstripe detailing. I couldn’t seem to find them online but I bought them for £45 at the time which is such a reasonable price for good quality shoes.

To finish the outfit off, I paired it with gold jewellery. As I love a gold necklace with the denim. So of course I wore my beautiful gold necklace from Foaki. I absolutely adore this necklace, it’s a gold medallion necklace and is so beautiful. And is the perfect length to fill the neckline of the dress. And although you can’t see my earrings, I wore my small Engraved Gold Hoops from Topshop. I love these earrings, they’re small but quite thick so still make a subtle statement on your ear.

I shall definitely be living in this dress so I’m sure you’ll all see it again. As I seem to just live in the same couple of outfits on repeat! Hope you all enjoyed reading!
