Sportswear has been everywhere in streetstyle blogs for an age. And I guess its seeped into my subconsious, because sweatshirts and high tops have been on my mind for a good while! As A result I’ve been doing some serious ebay stalking of high tops for months and never quite taken the plunge- so when I got the chance to recieve a pair from Barratts, I was more than happy! Red, with studding makes these a pretty fun addition to my shoe collection, not to mention a nice break from boots in this decidedly unspring-like weather (I still haven’t braved bare ankles yet…)

I decided to play up the sporty whole vibe with my leather sleeve jumper but keep it feminine with swipe of red lipstick (my favourite way to ‘girlify’ an androgynous outfit). How else would you style high tops? I’m seeing bare legs and cut-offs when the sun comes, maybe with a summers white dress too. What do you reckon? A fan or no?


P.S Thank you to all of you folks who’ve moved over to Bloglovin’ – its so lovely to see some new faces around there, even if it is just because google is a bit of an arse.


I am cacking my pants a little bit about this, but… this baby blog has been nominated in the Company Blogger awards for  Best Personal Style Blog- Newcomer, and I would love if you could do the same for me. I know this is a tiny blog, but I’ve been having a hell of a lot of fun with my personal style over the last few months and to get involved with this would mean huge amounts!
