Two-piece and Trainers

So this is the most sophisticated I’ll ever dress. That’s if you could ever describe this look that way! Whilst it might scream ‘girls night out’ for some, this giraffe print crop top and skirt co-ord is what I’d call work wear and is the most ‘officey’ I’ll ever catch myself looking!

That’s if you wear them together though. Of course that’s the beauty of the co-ord and now that it’s suddenly super-trendy to wear one, girls like me who are all about the separates (a dress? what’s that?) a co-ord offers up the perfect solution for lazy days or options for when you want to get creative! Talking of creative, I layered up my sleeveless asos trench coat over a sheer Mint Velvet jacket and I quite like the outcome – win!

    Firstly, I absolutely love the combined jackets – it’s something I would never have thought of but it looks just like they came that way. I also like the little sparkly socks!
