Over It

Hello again

So surprise, surprise today I have another OOTD post for, technically it's yesterdays outfit however as you may have seen if you follow me on Twitter (that old phrase again), yesterday I finally got to see 'The Mortal Instruments' after a very painfully long wait and ......they massacred the book! Needless to say I thought it would be wise (since I was heartbroken) to keep myself away from any sort of social media until I had had chance to cool down. Honestly I could have cried, sounds silly I know but I am a massive fan of the books and it's just horrific, which is sad really as it had some pretty awesome casting and the possibility to be a really good film. However let's not make my technology ban futile by blabbing on about The Mortal Instruments and carry on with the outfit in question instead.

So I posted a (rather arty) picture a few days back on my Instagram page and instantly got many a like so I thought why not recreate it for you all on my blog. Also I happen to really like how this outfit came together and since I didn't do anything ( I don't even think I left the house ) on the actual day that I wore it I thought it should at least enjoy the light of day.

 Tartan High Neck crop- Primark (current)
Acid Wash Dungarees- Motel Rocks
Cross Belt- Primark (sale)
Earrings- Primark
Sunglasses (that I had forgotten were on my head, oops)- Primark
Studded Creepers- New Look (now on sale)
White 'Vickie' Satchel- A New Moda
Lipstick- Sleek Pout Paint, Pin Up Via Depop

So my entire outfit started with a recent trip to Primark to pick up this stunning tartan (big up the tartan love) high neck crop that @BlackCatStoreUK (you should seriously check them out their jewellery is stunning) lovingly tweeted me. She knows about my tartan obsession! Needless to say as soon as I saw it I had to have it for my own. And of course I just had to throw this under my ultimate favourite item of clothing aka my Motel Rocks dungarees. And seen as these are rather large on me I decided to throw on another Primark purchase I will lovingly describe as 'the blogger belt'. Seriously remember I told you of the cult items all bloggers seem to have? Well this belt is one of them from many a month ago however I have only now seen one in my local store. As a creature of habit I of course paired this with black tights and my studded New Look creepers as well as my Primark cross earrings (which matched my new belt nicely and were reduced to a pound, thank you very much Primark).

OK so now I have to move onto my satchel which I absolutely love and only received yesterday. However a love this strong can wait for no man so I just had to wear it as soon as the packaging was off. I won this via Twitter as part of a goodie bag from A New Moda along with a necklace and some bracelets (which will be included in tomorrows OOTD). The satchel its self isn't even available on the website yet and I am so thankful to A New Moda for hosting the competition and also naming this satchel after moi! Everybody say hello to the 'Vickie' Satchel! Hell Yeah, it's not everyday a girl gets a bag named after her. So a big thank you to Kate over at A New Moda I honestly would recommend their Satchels which are amaze balls (yep that happened, just go with it) and you can get them personalised with studs! Seriously what's not to love.

Got to love my bargain pout paint which I purchased as a set of 3 for £6 including PP via Depop!

Once again I hope that you enjoyed this look as much as I did. This may actually be one of my new favourite outfits and hairstyles. Don't you just love the days where you just throw your hair up and it looks amazing! Let me know which trend your loving for AW in the comments below. I am obviously loving all things tartan ATM (check out my other tartan posts here and here).


Disclaimer: I may have won some of these products however all opinions are my own. I would never recommend something that I didn't believe in myself.
