Vertical Stripes: Day to Night


Hello! You'll all probably have guessed by now that I'm a huge fan of simplicity when it comes to dressing myself. I tend to stick with simple colours, patterns and combinations. I don't do much in the way of layering (unless a cardi counts), and I'm not really one for accessorising all too well either. So, today I thought I'd show you how I'd take one of my typical, simple daytime outfits and turn it into something suitable for a night on the town. I hope you like it! :)
(Oh and if you're wondering where today's LinkLove post has got to - I'm postponing that feature over the summer! Don't worry I promise it'll be back in a few months time!)



 Striped Shirt*: OASAP // Jeans: Topshop // Shoes: Primark

Frankie wanted in on the posing too... look at him work those paws! >.<






Shirt*: OASAP // Jeans: Topshop // Bag: Primark // Heels: New Look // Earrings*: OASAP

Yup, for me it's as simple as a change of shoes and the addition of a few accessories, but I think it makes a big difference. I almost always take a bag with me on a night out - but since I'm not one for carrying too many things I'm usually seen without one during the day. I am in love with the trend of vertical black and white stripes at the minute but I don't think I could quite pull off a pair of the jeans I've been seeing everywhere. This shirt is perfect for me to be on trend but stick to the sort of style I'm more familiar with! What do you guys think? ♥
