Seventies Stripes

top from New Look // skirt from Next // boots from Jones // sunglasses from Warehouse 

I mentioned I've been enjoying the seventies vibes on the High Street recently and this top certainly hits the spot - the big roll neck and rust coloured stripes scream 70's. It'd look great with flared jeans, but as a curvy 5ft 4 I can't imagine them suiting me!

I've been pairing it with a courdroy skirt, of which I bought two - one in brown and one in black. I never shop in Next, but spotted these whilst waiting around for Rich and at £20 they're perfect! With a small(ish) waist and big ol' hips, I struggled a bit with the fit, but nothing a belt can't fix. I just need to invest in some nice belts, (not this scruffy old thing that came free on a dress!)

I ADORE my new ankle boots, they're quite literally the comfiest boots I have ever worn! I actually prefer wearing them with skinny jeans or bare legs (I have a bit of a thing about only wearing black shoes with black tights) but as we were going for a walk around the gardens of Kingston Lacey, I opted for comfort!



  1. This whole look is gorgeous! I especially love those sunglasses (although maybe the cuteness of your dog just sold them to me haha).

    1. Thank you! I got the sunglasses not so long ago in the sale - maybe your local store or Debenhams might have them! I wish she was my dog - we were dogsitting for Rich's mum :-( xx
