colour of the moment - taupe

Taupe is a fairly new colour in my wardrobe, but it is beginning to make its mark! I have blue eyes and this colour defiantly brings them out. Personally i think this colour would suit every skin tone & is so easy to wear day & night...


First is this Topshop blouse. Its such a lovely colour and feels so soft! It was £35 and although i was initially hesitant, i couldn't bear to put it back as i knew i would get so much wear out of it. It looks great with skinny jeans and with bodycon skirts, and I'm sure i could wear it with denim shorts when the summer eventually arrives. It is sort of sheer, but not see through, so i could wear it to college (another bonus!)

This little jacket, is fromH&M and cost £7.99. Its lightweight and when i looked at the price there was no way i could put it back. They come in a range of colours, and i was almost tempted to buy it in navy as well, but i did manage to resist temptation. I really like H&M at the moment, they are finally catching up with my other favourite shops and most of the time are half the price.

I also got a couple of basic things from New Look, not really worth picturing though to be honest, you've all seen plain t-shirts before. Atm NL are having 20% off for students, so i had a "why not?" moment and bought a few bits ;-)


Hope your all well, i will try and post again this weekend to compensate my lack of blogging these past couple of weeks.

** you may have also noticed the new layout. A friend of mine is doing a design course and i noticed she has been mixing different materials, such as wood and floral together, so i decided to give it a go haha, what do you think?
