Hey guys! So I haven't done an outfit post in a little while and that's because of this awful weather! Seriously, I tried to shoot photos of this outfit a good three times and rain or snow kept getting in my way. How annoying?! Total blogger problems. Anyway, I got there in the end and whilst I'm still not entierly happy with these images (the wind was beyond a joke) at least I can finally share this cute outfit with you guys.
I was recently sent some items from Missy Empire which is a really affordable UK brand who sell a while range of cute and on trend pieces - I've loved everything I've ever been sent from them and the pieces are always of a high quality. I'm a big fan of a roll neck style top, especially when the weather is bad as it keeps me nice and toasty and this burgundy one is perfect - not to mention a steal at only £12.00 too. I love everything about it - the colour, the fabric and the fit are all amazing and I've been wearing it non-stop as it goes with so many items in my wardrobe. It's definitely one of my Winter must-haves.
I paired the top with a another Missy Empire item - this gorgeous statement skirt that has a tie front and beautiful laser cut detailing around the hem. Obviously I've worn it as quite a Wintery look here with the knee high boots but I also think this will be stunning in the Summer paid with little vests or crop tops. It's one of those items that can be worn with so many different tops so I know I'm going to get so much wear out of it throughout the whole year. It's only £23.00 too so really affordable.
I also wanted to quickly mention my new bag as I'm so in love with it! It's the Zara Office City bag and as soon as I saw it on their website, it had to be mine. I have another one of their city messenger bags in a tan colour from a couple of years ago but it's slightly too big for day to day use so although this one is still big, I think it's more wearable for every day and the perfect size to fit all my essentials in. It also has a zip compartment in the middle which is the perfect size for my macbook so it's perfect for travelling with too. I'm actually about to invest in a designer handbag but that won't stop me buying amazing high street bags too - you just cannot go wrong with a Zara bag in my opinion. They're fabulous quality and so chic - the perfect alternative to a designer piece.
I hope you guys liked this post - I've linked all items above so if you like anything, just click those and it'll take you directly to the item! You can get the top and skirt for only £45.00 which is such amazing value.
I can't wait to shoot more outfit photos soon as I love sharing them with you guys - I just hope the weather gets its act together very soon.
