It's Still Rock and Roll



Cardigan & Leggings - H&M, Top - All Saints, Boots - New Look

The last two day I've seemed to have adopted some kind of rock chick vibe in terms of some of the bits and bobs I've been wearing.  None of it is planned mind you, just the way the cookie crumbled.  After Sunday's wardrobe clear out, I found a few jems lost in the depths of my drawers (though I maybe should have chucked them).  One of which was this rather unique top from All Saints with such a awesome design and detail on the back I just had to hold on to this one.  This matched with my buckle boots and zip leggings it was very biker/rock chick-esque.


Dress - Supre, Necklace - Primark, Sandals - Office

Yesterdays look was much more feminine and summery - due to drastic weather changes in London - I also managed to find this little beaut on a lonely rail.  I bought the dress some years ago when I was travelling around Australia, in a shop called Supre (is that still around in Oz?).  


The only reason I don't wear this as often as I should is because it's strapless (why I bought strapless dress when I can't wear them I don't know) - you see I have a rather large bust and I'm yet to find a strapless bra that does the job quite frankly.  Though thanks to the high street finally realising there are girls with bigger busts that don't want to spend a fortune or wear bras made for their grandma's I found quite a great selection in Debenhams, one of which matches perfectly with the dress - could you tell it was a strapless dress if I didn't tell you?

Anyway back to my original point, I teamed this rather summery outfits with one of my favourite Summer jacket - this studded beauty from Primark, bringing us back to the rock chick vibe.



Jacket - Primark

I just adore this jacket and I'll tell you exactly why it's my favourite Summer jacket - it's light, it's versatile (it goes with dresses, maxi's, leggings etc), it's a great fit both feminine and edgy with the stud detail - what more could you want in your jacket?

What's your go to jacket for the warmer weather?

And now in other news - here is what I managed to clear out of my wardrobe on Sunday...

It's not as much as I hoped, but it's better than nothing, I just can't let go of my clothes! I'm donating the bag on the left to charity, and if I ever get around to it, I'll be putting the items on the right on Ebay.

Anyone else a bit of a hoarder of clothes like me?

I'm going through my things to donate some, too! Also, I love that you're channeling a little bit rocker chic vibe because I think that's my favorite influence in fashion. You've got some fun details on these looks. (:

Those sandals are amazing! You could wear them with so many different styles, from a flowy maxi dress to a badass denim jacket like you did here. :)
