Outfit Of The Day: Leather & Lace!

I’ve always been a girl to splurge on beauty products and makeup more than anything else, but recently I’ve developed a bit of an online clothes shopping addiction!  It’s terrible because I spend large amounts of money in chunks but I just can’t stop!

I’ve decided to try and start doing some outfit posts so show off my new purchases.  I went out to Burghley Manor House in a beautiful town called Stamford last weekend, with my boyfriend Andrew and his parents and I took along my camera (and my new lens) with me.  Here are some snaps!

My clothes: Lace Top – New Look, Leather Trousers – River Island, Fluffy Cardigan – Primark, Sunglasses – Dorothy Perkins.

The sun was shining so we made our way through the houses’s sculpture garden and ‘the garden of surprises’ which was full of interactive water features, mazes and mirrors, before settling down in the orangery for tea and cake.  We also spotted some deer and imitated them (as you do).

I found out about these leather trousers after reading about them on Anna’s blog and I purchased straight away.  They are a good length once folded up at the bottom (I’m ridiculously short so this is normal for me) but are a little tight around the waistband which means I have to regularly unbuckle!  I wasn’t actually going to keep the lace top (I feel guilty for buying too much and try to take something back) but teamed with the leather it looks okkaay so I kept it!

I hope you liked this post and something a little different!  Let me know if you would like to see more!

Would you like to see more of my outfits?

    Hehe, those last two pics are cute 🙂 And definitely wouldn't mind seeing more outfit posts! I really like what you're wearing here. Lace and leather go great together. They create the perfect balance between rock 'n roll and cute.

    ooooh the lace top looks wonderful (its probably just my dire love for anything lacey talking but it really does look good) I understand your 'being short' problems, I always end up looking like a middle schooler when I dress. The outfit posts are wonderful and you definitely should try more! -Aish xx

    I really like the combination of leather and lace! Girly yet with a bit of edginess. I'm usually a "fashion girl", but recently I developed a real love for beauty products and spend so much on that ^^
