OOTD: red label

 Co-ord: Red Label* | Shoes: Missguided | Bag: Primark

Another pretty simple outfit which didn't need much styling. This Red Label co ord is an amazing bright orange and the print is so bold I felt like if I added any jewellery or bold accessories it would completely over complicated. I kept it super simple for that reason and just paired it with a black clutch and black strappy heels (surprise surprise). I feel like both the top and skirt are both so beautiful they could be styled up with so many other pieces for more casual outfits with a pair of jeans or with a glam crop top. Together they are definitely eye-catching, maybe a bit too much for some people but I think for a night out it's great. It feels almost crepe like in texture and is really stretchy so isn't too figure hugging but is still fitted. The top has white cord straps, similar to that on a Missguided top I have and I actually really love this style of straps and find it flattering. As I lack a long torso (or long legs) the top and skirt tended to overlap at the back which makes it almost look like a dress but on somebody with a bit more height than me (5"3) it would fit perfectly! I also kept hair and makeup pretty simple too as the co ord completely does the talking. What do you think of it? Check out Red Label for more pretty coords and other lovely bits if you like this. I've got my eye on this gorgeous printed dress...

I also feel like the blog is getting a bit samey/too much personal style posts and not enough of anything else. I want it to primarily be about my personal style but maybe I should do some more wish lists, info on trends, recent catwalk styles, my course/internship and even just '5 ways to ...' type things. Let me know what kind of thing you'd like to see so I can mix it up a bit and keep you all interested!
