Topshop, Topshop, Topshop

I need to apologise. This post is pretty unoriginal and I am going to finger point at the following reasons:

a) It's me in my standard comfort zone uniform - jeans/blazer/shirt/big bag/sunglasses; and
b) It's more or less one brand from head to toe.

This should be very embarrassing but I am here to defend myself.  I like every item worn and so have come to terms with the lack of originality and fully forgiven myself :) 

Here are some reasons why...

1) The Jamie Jeans. As I hinted in a previous post, the jeans are amazing and plenty of reviewers on the Topshop site echo this sentiment. They aren't jeans is the true sense - more of a soft jegging - but Topshop came good with these. They are a deep wine colour, high-waisted and ankle skimming which makes them perfect to wear with heels. If you do buy these expect something very flattering and forgiving in a shade that will make you feel very seasonally appropriate. I am definitely buying more colours/prints in the Jamie style. It's a bit of revelation.

2) The shirt. Okay this is a standard affair that can be found in almost every high street store but I liked the little details that it came with. The gold tipped collar is duped on the sleeves which is a nice touch and the top gold button means that you have to wear it done up in order to do it justice. This is pretty sheer but nothing that my nude strapless Wonderbra cannot handle!

3) The shoes....the shoes! I bought these online and definitely under-estimated how much height they would add. There was some teetering. Still they lived up to all other expectations. I love the pointed shape of the toe, with a deep, angular cut to reveal toe cleavage and the pin stud detail looks intricate and well executed up close. I also love the burgundy base colour with gold - it's such a nice combination for this time of year and takes on a different appearance when viewed close-up and from a distance.

So here's the OOTD!

As I hinted earlier on Instagram this was also a day for a new lipstick debut. This is very exciting for me. Nothing is better than an untouched lipstick out for her maiden voyage!

Meet MAC's Saigon Summer, a light tangerine/pink cremesheen finish number. I tried to think of the word that best described this and all I can come up with is "juicy". It's just the right amount of bright and the perfect way to brighten up my Saturday without making too much of a statement. After all, I played it safe with my outfit and my lips surely need to do the same :) 

Happy Saturday everyone :)

  1. When you're right, you're right! No apologies required, you look gorgeous :-) I love the detail on that blouse and I wish I could wear high-waisted jeans, but I have NO torso and they go right up over my ribs - boohoo! Great outfit.

  43. Those jeans are so perfect. The only thing I don't like is I find after a wash they fit perfectly, however they loosen on the second wear. Let me know if this is just me because otherwise I'd buy them all the time
