Denim and Lace

Feels like I haven't done an outfit post in ages. My trusty photographer (i.e. my Mum) is away on holiday so my little sister H has had to fill in. Who knows how I'll manage when I'm living on my own.

I bought the denim spot tie shirt from my summer wish list last week but I decided it looked terrible on so I swapped it for this little lacy number instead, I love the contrasting collar! I'm still on the lookout for the perfect tie up denim shirt though.

Belt from Primark
Necklace from Me and Zena
Pumps from Vivienne Westwood c/o Daniel Shoes

In my opinion denim works really well with lace as it stops it from being too dressy and also stops the denim being too casual. I imagine I could almost get away with something like this for work, maybe just through a black blazer over the top. I've been wearing my new Viv pumps to death and they're still super comfortable which is saying a lot because I'm not really a pumps person.

  8. Cheapo tripod or a handy height flat surface does the trick for me! I find I'm much less self conscious when it's just me than when I'm posing in front of someone.

    That top is so pretty. Shame about the denim shirt but that's a really nice alternative.

  9. The outfit works really well together. The denim skirt is really pretty. And great idea about adding lace so that it's not too much of a casual outfit.

  12. My photographer is away too, and he took the tripod with him! Grrr... I either prop the camera on a table or use a gorilla pod (tripod with bendy legs). Works reasonably well!

    This looks like a great work outfit, stick a blazer on over the top and you're ready to go. I hope the flat hunting is going well! xx

  24. YahooOO! Good to see you enjoyin your Viv pumps, must say they really suit you and your lace/denim combo! Next time, before you return an item take picture of it and you in it so we can see if you are being too strict on it being ugly! Agreed? :P haha! You look so so nice Hannah btw, i think summer is working well on you! :)
