Crazy For Collars!

Okay, so I've got a little bit of a problem and they say the first step to working through your problems is to admit them to yourself, so here we go... I'm addicted to collars.

Playsuit, Topshop

I love them on dresses, playsuits, tops and blouses - anything I can get my hands on! I just think they're such a cute addition to any outfit. I'm quite girly when it comes to my dress sense, I'll generally love anything covered in florals or lace and especially anything that comes in a pastel shade.

It was only when gazing at my wardrobe the other day, having one of those ''I have NOTHING to wear'' moments despite clothes spilling out my closet, that I realised just how many collared items I own.

It doesn't even stop there, I even bought this add-on collar necklace to put on outfits that don't already have one! I think my problem is getting worse but it's not something I have an issue with, I feel collars are here to stay in my wardrobe and that makes me a very happy fashion blogger indeed.

Matchy Matchy, Yay Or Nay?

I've massively neglected my blog for the past couple of weeks due to my ridiculous workload and impending deadlines at Uni, I can only apologise to my readers. Less of the boring drivel, let's move onto the good stuff!

So, I've blogged quite a lot about the wedding I'm going to (it's on Monday, so I'll shut up about it after this post, I promise!) but when you're going to church, I always think you have to select your outfit really carefully. It has to be classy and pretty but not show too much cleavage or leg, so not to upset the vicar! 

For men, suits are the go-to outfit for a wedding so I decided to try and follow suit (no pun intended!) and search for a matching blazer and shorts suit. Now, whilst I couldn't find shorts, I did find the cutest matching blazer and puffball skirt on ASOS, so click click and it was on it's way to my house.

I blogged about ordering this outfit here, so you'll find all the details about pricing here too.

I love the idea of a two-piece suit for girls, I think it looks so classic but not many shops, in my opinion, are promoting and selling them well. I scoured the high street before finding this one on ASOS and whilst I absolutely love it, I think the print is so quaint, unfortunately I couldn't keep it for the wedding. The skirt is of a length that's totally acceptable for a Friday night on the tiles but one that would make the vicar blush in church! Also, I'm your average size 10 girl and I got the blazer in that size and it swamped me (you can't tell in this photo as I'm clutching it in at the waist but it was massive, so I'd advise a size smaller).

This hasn't put me off two-piece sets though, I'm still searching for my perfect girl suit!

Are you a fan of the girl suit?
