Attempting to mix it up

Jumper: Primark // Studded collar blouse: New Look // Skater dress: Topshop // Leggings: Topshop // Boots: Topshop // Belt: Primark

I feel like Michelle at Daisy Butter in this post, taking outfit photos in the middle of my road haha.

This is a dress that I wear quite often, it's such an easy shape and colour to wear with a pair of leggings or tights, then either my vans or ankle boots. But I feel like I need to change how I wear it, to try and make it a bit more interesting. I know this isn't exactly groundbreaking fashion, but I just thought I'd try and layer a blouse under it and a jumper over the top. The jumper is loosely tucked into a waist belt, to keep it cropped, however I think I need to invest in a thicker belt as it kept popping out of this one. It was so windy when I took this photo, hence the hair in my face! I was only able to take a couple of photos before running back inside to the warmth, so this is the best image from a bad bunch haha.

How do you reinvent your favourite pieces of clothing? Can you suggest any other interesting ways I can wear this dress? x

P.S. I haven't mentioned my instagram on here for a while, so here it is. I need to find some more people to follow so leave your usernames in a comment if you'd like :) x
