Song of the Day: Bowling For Soup - Real
Everyone that knows me, will know how much i love my comfy basics! A pair of shorts and a cool vest top and i'm good to go! However, i never underestimate the power of accessories.. or shoes!
My criminal damage shorts have to be the comfiest pair of shorts Ever. The studs give them a bit of an edge and the charcoal colour makes them possible to wear with almost anything. Pair them with a vest from H&M basics range (for £2.99 who can argue?) and the body of the outfit is done.
So how to 'power-up' a basic outfit?
A good Statement Ring never goes amiss. I nabbed this one-of-a-kind piece at a blogger event last year and finally dug it out after the big clearout! Marilyn Monroe is an obvious icon but one i love nontheless; she makes every woman want to wear a skirt and go play on the beach!
These amazing Pretty Polly tights are a perfect way to add a boost of cuteness, they are a real talking point and on-the-ball right now for Valentine's day! They really do speak for themselves and give a bit of a new edge to 'wearing your heart on your sleeve..'
Lastly, i'm a total sucker for Statement Shoes! Especially anything cowboy style. My favourite pair of boots are my more traditional cowboys so when i saw these in the H&M sale with their pointy toes and cowboy charms i just had to have them: it was one of those 'my life will be complete..' moments! These are so comfy and the silver detailing gives an edge to any outfit.
Although be warned: this are not the shoes for running up the stairs! Pointy toe + step = Total Fail.
