Outift of the Day: Missguided Crop & Topshop Trousers



??????????Crop Tee – Missguided / Chain – eBay / Trousers – Topshop / Shoes – JuJu / Bag – Forever 21 / Lipstick – Barry M ‘Palest Lavendar’

Everybody, look! LOOK. I’M NOT AT WORK. On a Friday! I hope you’re all as excited as I am about this fact. Normally, having a day off work is thrilling enough, but today I’m especially excited because one of my very best friends is coming to stay with me for the weekend. I’m just about to leave the house to meet her at the station and welcome her to sunny Coventry, but thought I would quickly share what I’m wearing out for our lunch and drinks date.

This sort of thing has very much became a bit of a go-to outfit for me this year while the crop top continues to reign supreme. It’s only really been this summer that I’ve started to incorporate them into my day wardrobe, after being a bit iffy about the idea for a while. But now I think I can safely say it’s acceptable, though only when teamed with something high-waisted of course – belly buttons are the new nipples, keep them covered unless you want to cause too much of a stir.

I teamed this Missguided crop (from the Sweet Deals range which I have raved about numerous times) with these Topshop trousers that I’ve had for about a year and absolutely LOVE. They’re so light and cool, and surprisingly versatile. They crease like a bitch and as a general rule I don’t iron clothes, which is why they don’t receive quite as much love from me as they should. If you’re interested in learning a top tip from my Lazy Girl’s Guide to Living Like a Human, then to get these crease-free this morning I blasted them with my hairdryer. My trusty fave eBay gold chain adds a dollop of ghetto fabulous to the outfit, complemented by this Forever 21 chain strap bag. The JuJu jellies don’t really match seeing as they have silver glitter in but SHUT UP I LOVE THEM, aaaaaaaand today I’m even wearing a lipstick in the day, which is rather unlike me.

On that note, I am very very close to being late and leaving Chiara stranded in the mean streets of Coventry, so I must dash. I hope you all have proper jazzy weekends, LATERS.

    Pro tip to iron things without an iron, speaking as someone who hasn’t even looked at an iron for nigh on three years: hang up whatever you want ironed on a clothes hanger in the bathroom while you shower. The steam filling the room should make the creases in your clothes drop out (at least somewhat, I can’t promise miracles) plus it’s an excuse for an extra long shower. Boom! For best results hang it in shower with you, if you have the time to dry it out a bit afterwards. (This method also gets rid of static in clothes.)

      I’ve heard this shower business before but never tried it; think I’ve been too afraid of accidentally soaking my clothes! Could be revolutionary though, well worth a try xx
