OOTD T-shirts

Just two recent outfits…

I wore my new pink M&S top with M&S treggings and sparkly Converse to see Dave Chappelle at the Hammersmith Apollo last week. We were way further forward than I thought we’d be and I have never been so grateful for a lack of audience participation in my life! I think I am going to make an effort to sit near the back at comedy shows in the future… It didn’t help that my sister was wearing an even brighter top (it was neon and actually glowed under the lights) – we have never felt so vulnerable! Having said that, our cheeks hurt for hours afterwards so definitely a good show!

The top is super flowy and comfortable and has a funky pleated back, which adds interest and makes it just smart enough for work:

M&S

I’m not sure how flattering it actually is- I’m worried that it creates a slight hump-back/maternity effect- but I think that’s mostly just in photos, it’s fine in motion. And I couldn’t resist the colour!

Necklace: Sublime; ring from Monastiraki last year; bracelets are various ones ones I have accumulated over the years, I think the grey circle one is by Elle Amber.

The top kind of speaks for itself… how could I not buy it?! Anything that combines Disney with Beyoncé is alright by me! I am obsessed with Primark t-shirts actually, they are pretty much all I buy these days- I love the captions, the material and the shape. Although I can’t wait for them to get over their “half rolled up sleeves” phase.

I wore this outfit to go for dinner yesterday. The skirt is Primark, and the trainers are New Balance (410 Sonic) from Asos.

If you had told me even a year ago that I would be wearing trainers to dinner, I would have laughed in your face. (Admittedly, we only went to the local kebab place, I wouldn’t have worn them had we been going anywhere nicer.) But as I get older, I am rapidly losing tolerance for anything less than super-comfiness (another thing I never believed I’d say until recently) and so I bought these with a view to mostly just wearing them to and from work. However, what with seeing so many people (primarily bloggers) making trainers into a ‘look’, I have been venturing out in them more and more. It took me ages to find ones that I liked, as I wanted really clean, uncluttered ones that didn’t make my feet look enormous (I have realised that whenever I think a woman looks nice in trainers, it is almost always because her feet are tiny and dainty- aka my life dream) but I am really happy with these ones.

Still not as cool as my sparkly Converse though!

Casual wkend3

Easter Bank Holiday weekend. It was a pretty casual 4 days for me as my family and I celebrate Greek Easter which was a week later this year, so I didn’t have any special plans and got to just chill. 🙂

I went to Covent Garden with my bf to return some shoes and have some Shake Shack. I was going to change before heading to a friend’s in the evening for a games night but didn’t have time (too many cheese fries!). I wore:

– Leopard print Coke tee from Primark

– Black M&S treggings

– Sequinned Converse trainers (also seen here).

– My sister’s silver and turquoise earrings.

– Turquoise bracelet from Suite Blanco in Lisbon

– and bright pink Wet n’ Wild lipstick to jazz it up

To walk to my sister’s on an unexpectedly lovely day I wore:

For a pub visit in the evening with some friends:

– Black tee from Ruly’s in Lisbon

– Black M&S treggings

– New black Forever 21 handbag

– Topshop earrings

– New Asos ‘Evie’ clumpy heels, that I ummed and ahhed over for so long that I think I probably missed the deadline for sending back anyway! They are a bit massive and clodhopper-y, but they are also surprisingly comfortable. A couple of my friends have the slightly lower, more elegant Topshop version but both say that they are hugely painful. My boyfriend hates them but my friends and sister all liked them… So, they’re keepers!

To play frisbee in the park with my nephews:

– Leo tee from Primark

Hearty Asos sunnies

So dreamy….

I was an almost-teenager when Titanic came out and it was practically the law to fancy Leo.

Not that it was hard…

:-p

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend (and last weekend, which felt very short!)

Have a great week!
