You know how sometimes you just find an outfit which individually isn’t anything special but you absolutely fall head over heels for it?! Well, this outfit does exactly that for me. At the beginning of January, I placed an order with Simply Be, mainly because there was a stunning black sequin dress that I wanted but alas despite ordering 2 different sizes it just wasn’t for me. But while I was there I did choose a few more items because who can ever place an online order and only buy what they initially went on for?! I know I can’t.
I went through the sale section and saw this oversized khaki embroidered shirt, now usually for me shirts don’t do up around the bust area so I had planned to wear this more as a light jacket as I loved the length. Khaki isn’t a colour I usually wear so I thought I’d throw myself out of my comfort zone but it’s not too bright or garish, plus it goes with black which is what most of the clothing I own is. I was pleasantly surprised when the shirt arrived to see that it fit and I could actually do up all the buttons without feeling like I was going to flash someone *hoorah*
Next up I spotted these star and moon sequin jeans and fell in love. I have to admit I wasn’t sure if they looked a bit tacky on the website but I thought what the heck, I knew I’d be returning at least one item anyway so if they were rubbish I could always send them back. From the moment I opened them from the packaging though I knew I couldn’t part with them. They’re actually the first pair of slim jeans I’ve ever owned as I’ve always just stuck to skinny jeans but I found them really flattering and it’s always nice to be able to put the bottom of your jeans over your boots as opposed to skinny’s only allowing them to go inside.
The jeans are pretty much a spot on fit for me and I don’t think there’s anything I’d change about them and the sequin detailing I am obsessed with. I love stars and moon/ sun symbols anyway but the sequins are well secured so I’m not worried about them coming off when I’m wearing them/ in the wash and they just jazz up a simple outfit.
