This year is THE year of transition for me. My time at university is coming to an end and I’m on my way into the big bad world. This time of year is also all about transition, in the last few weeks the blossom has appeared on the trees and the weather has [very slightly – blink and you’ll miss it] warmed up.
With this in mind, transitional dressing will be the buzz word on every fashion savvy pair of lips in the upcoming weeks and months, and so I’ve thrown together an outfit that, I must say, I’m loving.
This outfit is all about layering, and for me that’s a key trend for transitional dressing as it means you can turn summer pieces into spring ones just by adding a turtle neck under it like I’ve done here.
Lately I’ve gotten into a bit of a light-wash denim rut that I just cannot get out of, and to be fair, with good reason – it goes with errythanng. But when I found these jet black kick flares from Misguided I saw an opportunity to switch up my denim, and I’m so glad I did!
This shirt from Next is one I saw on epic blogger Megan Ellaby and cheekily decided to copy, the gathered sleeves make it a bit funky and different and the stripes make it oh so chic. I’ve paired it with a neutral stone turtle neck ribbed top from Boohoo – really this colour combo shouldn’t really work, and I have no idea why it does, but I think it does!
Now I’ve had the same glasses for ages and I am sick to death. But as a poor poor student [insert sad violin music here] there ain’t no way I can currently afford new ones that I actually like, but when I saw that Asos had brought out a load of different clear lens glasses, I thought I’d try out some different frames so that when I can finally get some new specs, I’m sure of the one that will suit me best. These massive goofy frames were just £12..£12!! Bargain.

Teaming the outfit with my trust Tamaris Leopard Print Sock Boots from Zalando. I think these are one of my all time favourite boots. Weirdly they seem to go with everything, have the perfect sized heel and are incredibly comfy. WIN.
My bag is from Missguided also and I loved the metal hardware details and the neutral colour palette, I’m not massive on the gold chain, but it is also a clutch and so this can be removed.
So there we have it, a layered transitional look with clashing patterns and colours but I think it works!
