PINK IF I WANNA


All hail my favourite look to date! It might be the very Kurt Cobain vibe, it could be the stupidly cute and Clueless skirt or it could even be my new dream boots making their debut - OK so it's probably all of the above, who am I even kidding. When I chose this skirt, most of my colleges told me I was mad. Not everyone thought it was as cool as me, and they definitely didn't think it was something I'd choose to wear because OH MY GOD, CJ WEARING PINK?! It was a shock to everyone that I'd chosen something in this colour, but little did they know that I'd be styling it in a way that was me and I can totally wear pink if I want to, so screw you all.

It never sits right with me when people comment negatively on things you like because it 'wouldn't suit you', or 'you've never worn anything like that before'. Fashion is all about trying new trends and mixing up your style whenever you please. Hell no am I going to spend my days dressing the same and never try anything new. I mean, yeah OK one time I did buy a pair of fluffy sliders and it turns out they really weren't my thing. I tried them out because I thought they were sassy, and I know most of us have had many outfit fails in life, but we learn from that and will swear never place a flip-flop with grey faux fur on our feet again... Trends move on quick, and those gingham pants you wore last season might not be 'in fashion' now, but I have the mind set of if you like it, wear it, no matter how last season it is or if no one else thinks it's your thing. If you love it, then it is you. Just because I spend a lot of my time in a monochrome pallete, doesn't mean I don't enjoy pieces like this skirt or these sunglasses. It's time to quit judging and let people wear whatever the hell they want!

Talking of sunglasses, ASOS are slaying the game with their summer accessories at the moment, they even have these ones I'm wearing in an array of different colours (I have all of them, someone stop me). I'm a complete hoarder when it comes to eye wear and I'm constantly refreshing the New In page to see if they've brought out more styles. This style of frame is my favourite, and the colour is perfect for adding fun to an outfit, not that the rest of the look isn't fun enough!

Other than my sunglasses, this entire look is from Topshop. I'd say half of my outgoings from the past two months have been spent in Topshop. It doesn't help that I spend thirty eight hours a week in one of their stores, of course. I can't help myself, their new season pieces are making my heart break and my bank account hurt!

I might of gone totally OTT with this look, it's definitely a case of fan girling as it's pretty obvious I enjoy Kurt Cobain, but I am honestly head-over-heels in love with every piece in this outfit, no matter how much I might look like a number one Nirvana fan.
