First Outfit of the Day!


This is a very exciting post for me to do as it's my very first outfit of the day post! I've always loved fashion and clothes. I love the way a really great outfit makes you feel so much better about yourself. I really can't stand tight clothing and all my clothes need to feel comfortable. What's the point in wearing something you feel bad in? Comfortable clothing can obviously still be incredibly fashionable!  Fashion is important to me because it makes me feel good even when I'm feeling a bit down about myself. Me and my sister Rachel are always looking for new outfits and going out to town together. My favourite shops are River Island and more recently, New Look!  This outfit is mostly made up out of New Look clothes.
 I bought this beautiful gothic Kimono yesterday and it wasn't even all that expensive! It was £23 and just think how much expensive it would have been if it was from River Island or ASOS? I think the velvet lining, the black lace and the tassels are just stunning and it's my perfect, dream piece of clothing. I feel like I've dreamed of owning this Kimono! I've never even worn a Kimono before but I think I'll be getting a lot more. They are perfect for just pulling on over every outfit. I can see myself living in this. The crop top is also from New Look but I bought it in a bigger size so I'd feel more comfortable. I love the usual striped pattern. The tights are also a great find from New Look. I've became absolutely obsessed with fashion tights! They make every outfit so much more interesting! The tights are like another accessory (accessories are key to making an outfit special!). My little necklace is from ASOS. Apparently it's nineties inspired because of the black cord and I couldn't resist it.
Onto my shoes. I'm in love with them and guess where they are from? Primark! so they were only £15.00. They took a while to break in but I adore them already. I like the way they still have height to them so I still feel like I'm wearing a bit of a heel. I hate completely flat shoes. The shoes look really doll-like and a couple of years ago I was completely obsessed with wanting to look 'babydoll!'.
My skirt is a simple skater skirt from Boohoo.

So there is my first outfit of the day! I think this is going to become a firm favourite outfit of mine. So, what did you wear today?

    1. Thank you Felicity! Hope your doing ok!
      We decided to start a new blog because we both didn't feel any motivation towards blogging and obviously we started to hate writing new posts sadly :(
      It's a different story now and we thought a new start would be the answer, haha! Also, we wanted to write different kinds of posts instead of just review make up :)
