Growing Flowers in the Dark

Sheer Top - H&M | Striped Maxi Skirt - Primark | Black Bralet - Topshop
Flower Hair Clips - H&M | Bracelet - Shimmering Summer Bracelets

With limited funds since graduating, I've been forced to rummage through my wardrobe for clothes I already own, so I tried to come up with something a little different to what I'd usually wear. With such an unpredictable summer, its been so easy to get caught out wearing too much or too little, so I thought this would be a nice balance.

I absolutely love the shirt with this bralet. Its difficult to see in these photo's, but the bralet has cut out panels down the sides. I tried to take a close up of it, but it's not really come out well has it? 
The skirt has been in my wardrobe for a while now completely unworn, so I thought I'd make sure it made an appearance! Its a bit long though as you can see, next time I'll be wearing it with heals with it for sure!



  1. It's good to rediscover hidden treasures at the back of the wardrobe, lovely outfit :)

  2. Aw thank you :) I love making little discoveries. I want to get more creative with my wardrobe too as it's so easy to fall into the habit of putting the same things together xx

  3. Ooooh, yay! I love it! & I totally need the bralet, I've been looking for one like that for freakin ages! I bought a long skirt because of your previous OOTD, because it just looked amazing and then realized I need a bralet to go with it because it looks silly with any other top.. *sigh* at least I'm on the right way! haha x

  4. Gorgeous outfit. Love the stripes and the colors.

  5. Thank you :) They sell one similar to mine, only the newer version has a zip so you can actually get in and out of it. I cant tell you the number of times I've got stuck trying to get out of this one because you have to pull it over your head, but its sooo tight! haha. Sorry Im making you buy more clothes ;) haha. I do love bralets though. I want more! xx

  6. Aw, Thank you so much :) xx

  7. I've had my eye on this skirt for a while now, I love it! I like how you have styled it, looks great on you :D

  8. Aw thank you, I know I love this skirt! I really love the pleated detail around the waistband. I'd been looking for an excuse to wear it for so long!
    You should get it, it would look lovely on you :) xx
