I was recently sent a Next gift card in order to buy some items to review so thought I'd kill two birds with one stone by showing you what I bought and show you todays outfit. I never really buy clothing or accessories from Next so I found it difficult to find something, in the end I opted for a jazzy top and some fancy light up twigs.
Jacket: Miss Selfridge, Top: Next, Tunic: Topshop,
Super Cosy Tights: Primark, Boots: Missguided
I'm first going to talk about my top because I absolutely LOVE it! I like the colour, the style and especially the studded detail, it's a stylish top and fits in well with the A/W trends. I personally think the top looks more expensive than it actually is because it's really well made and there's a lot of detail. The top retails at a mere £20 and is available in 3 different colours; khaki, black and cream. If I hadn't already got a black studded top from Warehouse, I'd have bought this in the black version too.
I like how the top is opaque at the front and sheer at the back, I also like how the top is longer at the back too because it covers your bum! There's nothing worse than wearing a top that doesn't cover your bum when wearing leggings!
I also like how you can dress this top up or down, you could wear it during the day or at night, it's such a versatile piece and you can style it many ways. You could wear the top with trousers, jeans or leggings, and you could even tuck the top into shorts or a skirt. You could also wear it with a leather jacket like I did or opt for a denim jacket or blazer instead.
It's a great piece for autumn/winter and I'll certainly be getting a lot of wear out of it.
I chose to wear my studded boots today as I thought they went well with the top. I've had these boots for a couple of months but today is the first day I've worn them which I feel pretty ashamed of as they're a beautiful pair of boots. The boots are very trendy and stylish but I must admit that they're not the comfiest for shopping in.
I had to feature my lovely light up twigs in my outfit photos because if truth be told, I bloody love them and I'm so glad I bought them with the gift voucher. I've recently had my room decorated so I'm on the lookout for funky accessories and lighting, these are perfect because they look pretty and give off a good amount of light. I had to buy two sets of the twigs because one set looked a bit sparse so if you're planning on buying these light up twigs, definitely buy 2 sets! The twigs retail at £12 which I think is pretty amazing!
I also couldn't not show you my nails, I sat there painting these beauties for a good few hours yesterday and I think they look awesome. I would do a tutorial for them but I doubt you'd want to sit through a 12 hour video or read a blog post the length of a toilet roll!
I hope you liked my outfit of the day and if you have any questions, please feel free to comment below!
