WHAT I WORE| 70s Cowgirl

Topshop crochet top and cord a-line skirt* via FashionChick | Tan floppy hat | Missguided Tassel Heels

Hey everyone! I’ve been on somewhat of a blogging hiatus lately, with my final exams approaching, let’s just say balancing work/blogging is kinda impossible.  You know when you look at words for so long that they cease to become words? So much so that even formulating 140 characters for a tweet becomes stressful? Yep. That’s where I’m at now. 3rd year, you need to be over, ASAP.

You might not know that I was lucky enough to be invited to join Fashionchick‘s blogger network. If you haven’t heard of Fashionchick, they are a social shopping site where you can browse a heap of brands at once which makes onling shopping WAY easier. Sadly I had to miss their event in London but I was able to pick out some Topshop pieces to do a collab with them which I’m still SO excited about!

With all their 70s inspired pieces I was whipping ALL the crochet and ALL the fringing off the shelves. I eventually decided on this cord a-line skirt and crochet top combination, I never fall out of love with 70s inspired styles so I was so happy with how this look came together. I paired it with this tan floppy hat and and fringed heels from Missguided which are my new obsession. I love the fringed detail which adds that 70s vibe to an outfit, they’re definitely my new statement shoe. I’m also a footwear ambassador for Missguided this month so keep your eyes open for lots more pretty shoes!

Over the bank holiday weekend I took some much needed time out and went to Stratford. Despite it being really close to where I live for Uni I’ve never got around to visiting. I love discovering new places so wandering around Stratford with its cute little shops and gorgeous river decorated with canal boats was the perfect way to spend the weekend. We also went to visit Anne Hathaway’s cottage which is where these photos were taken, so beautiful!

What do you think of this outfit? Are you into the 70s?
