 Skirt ASOS (similar here) | Top Thrifted (similar here) | Shoes Dorothy Perkins (similar here) | Bracelets Lane Bryant (similar here)

We've all had those times where you buy something then forget about it ever existed. Sometimes, I hate my wardrobe and I feel like I have nothing to wear despite having so many things. I've been trying to make a conscientious effort to wear more things in my closet - or 'shop my closet'. Among them are these pieces: the ASOS chiffon skirt and a chiffon top I bought from thrifting. The ASOS skirt in particular frustrated me to no end because it's so difficult to style - I like it because it's pretty, but one of the pet peeves I have is the black waistband! I tried to counter it by wearing a flowy fabric top to hide it. So far so good. Are there things that you hate on clothing in particular? Like I said, mine are the black waistbands on skirts or dresses. I also don't like cutoff shorts that aren't rolled up for some reason.

  1. I've missed your outfit posts! I love the colour of that top.

  2. love the top color, i adore the pastely aqua color. me wantie! :D you look adorable!

  3. That aqua color and your hair? Totally made for each other. I think something I avoid on clothing is v-necks. I just don't like them. Gravity hasn't been kind to me in the chestal area and v-necks just makes it so much worse. I also don't like drawstrings. I find them not so useful and they always just get caught in the washer and rip out so I'm left with this hole of emptiness.

  4. you look so comfortable! i love the way you dress. Stylish but relaxing

  5. I never would have thought to pair these two items but they look great on you.


  6. the teal goes so well with the white, love the outfit on you!!

  7. This is so cute and summery! I love the two colors together and the sandals you chose.
    One thing that irks me about clothing is when you practically have to wiggle in and out of it due to the lack of zippers, buttons, etc. ... I won't buy anything that is such a chore to put on and take off. :)

  8. you look very cute, I love the pastels.

  9. Oh, good one! I love playsuits but it's a pain in the ass to take off. (especially if it's got buttons.) x

  10. Thanks Cassie, you totally know how to make me smile with your comments. I agree with your assessment in v-necks, I tend to go for scoop-necks instead. :)

  11. looking great :)......

  12. Love scoop necks and boat necks, too (even though they show my bra sometimes, but I think it's probably not a surprise to anyone that I wear one, so no biggie)

  13. Thanks! x
    I tried pairing something more 'tight' and I was very annoyed at the black waistband this skirt has. It's so distracting so I opted for a flowy top to cover it. xxx

  14. I know how you feel! I shop so much that I actually forget about other new stuff in my closet. I think you styled this outfit beautifully, lovely colours and so perfect for summer!

  15. This outfit is super great, girl!
