Jumper – H&M
Trousers – River Island
Necklace – Accessorize
Heels – Faith
This is definitely a favourite outfit of mine. If you’ve read my blog before, then you’ll know how much I love dark colours (and my pledge to try and wear brighter things) but I don’t think I’ll ever feel better or sexier in any other colour than black! I bought this jumper from H&M last year and it’s the most useful item ever, because it’s black you can team it with pretty much anything and I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve worn it. It’s great because it’s quite tight-fitting, and not too long, so if you’re wanting to look reasonably smart and team it with trousers or a skirt, it works really well. Unfortunately it’s getting a little worn and frayed now, sob, but I think it’s one of those things that I’m going to wear until it falls apart!
The trousers were a real find from River Island a while ago and amazingly, they actually fit me incredibly well! They aren’t too long or too baggy (like most trousers are on my short little frame) and the cut is one I really love at the moment. There is something really elegant about this style of trouser I think, but these are pretty much the only pair I’ve found that fit me properly…I would love some in pale grey or cream, but finding a pair of those for a Petite is probably like finding a Unicorn. If anyone finds any that work, please let me know! The necklace on the other hand is something I had no trouble buying, it’s from Accessorize and I’ve been wearing it a lot lately – Accessorize have some incredible pieces at the moment so I’d definitely recommend checking them out!
The heels are from Faith and I bought them in the Debenhams sale a few months ago! I went to a wedding reception in the summer and had a bit of a last minute manic panic that my dress was all wrong…so I went rushing into the shops to find a different one, but instead came away with these babies! They were literally knocked down to such a low price that I couldn’t resist them (and didn’t end up getting a new dress) but at least I got something out of my trip that day. They definitely weren’t the comfiest of shoes to wear on their first outing, oh my god do they pinch, but once I’d bedded them in and several blisters later, they are actually pretty comfy (now). The only problem is because they’re such a light grey the gather dirt really easily…but what can you do!
