Fashion By Julia

Hi everyone! I’m Julia from ‘We could cause catastrophes’ and I’m guest blogging for Lisa of this lovely blog. I’ve been asked to do a fashion related post as Lisa said her readers enjoyed a variety of posts! I’ve put together 3 outfits ’ that would be lovely to wear to the beach firstly, then on a first date and also just a normal day at school/sixth form.
Firstly this outfit is for the beach. Everything in this outfit is from Topshop unintentionally which may put some people off purely of how expensive it has become recently but if you are in sixth form you can purchase a NUS card which enables you to get 10% off everything including sale items which is a massive help!

Straw corsage trilby - £30
Sandals - £43
High waisted shorts - £22
Floral bracelet - £12

This outfit would be perfect for a day on the beach as the hat would be perfect to keep the harmful sun rays off your face, the bralet and shorts combo would keep you cool as you would be showing quite a bit of skin but not too much that it looks ‘slutty’. The contrast of the pretty floral pattern and the denim goes well together as it creates a pretty combination. Sandals are obviously an essential item for walking on the hot sand and the colour of these would look perfect against tanned skin, and the orange/coral colour is very in at the moment.

Next is the outfit for a first date. This scenario requires a middle amount of effort if that makes sense because on a first date you always want to be yourself and not look like you’ve tried too hard. Obviously it depends on where you going but I’ve put together this outfit with a restaurant date in mind.

Top – £25 from Asos
Flats - £25 from Asos
Over the body bag - £20 from Topshop
Maxi skirt - £40 from Topshop

Contrary to what people think, maxi skirts look wonderful on everyone, no matter what height, they elongate shorter legs and make long legs look even longer, which may or may not be a good thing to some people, to me it’s good. This maxi dress is such a lovely colour and it would be a good investment piece as it would match and coordinate with lots of things already in your wardrobe. It goes very well with this top as the block colour compliments the pattern on the top, and the simple accessories finish the look. Flats are good option on a first date as heels can look too dressy, unless it’s a posh restaurant of course. Also you don’t want to be taller than your date!

My final outfit is for a normal day at school/sixth form if you’re lucky enough not too have a uniform like me!

Vest top - £10 from New Look
Chinos - £10 from H&M
Sandals - £24.99 from H&M
Satchel - £24.99 from New Look

This outfit is just a comfy outfit to wear day to day when you’re at school and studying. Chino’s are a great choice of trousers if you don’t like wearing jeans or leggings as they are somewhere in between, however they are extremely comfortable and easy to move around in. The top I liked as it has a collar which is appearing on many items of clothing at the moment, it makes the top look very delicate as well as the pale floral pattern on it. The sandals may clash with the pattern on the top but they go very well with chinos to carry on the casual look, also sandals are ideal to keep your feet cool when walking around. Finally a satchel is a must have for school, size is deceiving as they can fit quite a lot of things in which is ideal when you have A4 folders and notebooks every day.

There you go!
