Black Leather Look

Hello my lovelies,

I finally got round to taking some photographs over this lovely break. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year. I do not have a New Year’s outfit post as I’ll probably be wrapped in several layers watching fireworks outside and it will be pretty dark. Sorry!

I picked up a few items in the sales and wanted to post them and the first being this delicious scuba style black ribbed top.



Top: Matalan £5 instore
Skirt: River Island (old)
Shoes: New Look (old)

I have been a huge fan of Matalan for a while now. I’m not sure whether it’s the affordability, variety of styles/sizes or the fact I can also go and get some homeware things whilst in the shop. But I really do love it. I can’t seem to leave without picking up either an oversized check shirt of even a simple black tee.

I paired it with this old leather skirt I won on ebay last year. I absolutely love the leather stitch detail in this skirt. You’ll find most stores are selling leather skirts this season, in a variety of colours so I know you can easily pick one up in the sale. I tend to go for longer ones then this, but for £3 I wasn’t going to pass up a short one. I’m also a huge fan of coloured leather, I spotted some emerald green ones in Matalan and even a metallic blue- go get em’ ladies!

So if you’re looking to recreate something similar to this look, get yourself a long sleeved black top, leather skirt and boom! You’ve done it.

Coming up next on my fashion part of the blog will be a stunning white ruffle shirt I’ve bought as part of my ‘back to work’ wardrobe.
