Sassy In Stripes

Have you noticed that in the last year there’s been a massive hype about striped long sleeved tops? It’s slipped past me a little bit, but I’ve finally found the perfect one for me from Nobody’s Child.

A lot of long sleeved tops have high necks/roll necks and for some reason that shape really freaks me out – I love this blue one because it sits just at the right height on my chest so I’m not overly booby but not choking at the same time. Plus, can I get a pat on the back for it not being black? Welcome to me trying to incorporate ‘colour’ into my outfits.

I thought I’d dress up my top in a girly way with a simple black skirt (also from Nobody’s Child) and my faux fur coat. I know you’re probably sick of the faux fur coat but it goes with every outfit and makes me look super chic, okay?

Long Sleeved Top – c/o Nobody’s Child

Skirt – c/o Nobody’s Child

Faux Fur Coat – New Look (still a few in stock in the sale!)

Bag – ASOS

Shoes – Zara

Recognise the cute bag? I bought it from ASOS recently in the sales and it featured in my New Year ASOS Haul. I think it really finishes off the outfit, even though it literally only holds my phone in it… the things we do for fashion.

Thoughts on the outfit? Let me know in the comments!

    That coat looks absolutely lush. I adore a long sleeved striped top but for some reason I don’t seem to own many!

    I love the skirt! The zip down the front adds an edgy coolness and is such great value.
