To Be In Love

11:07


Top: Boohoo. Skirt: Boohoo. Nails: Models Own Mixed Up.

I set myself the challenge of creating a new outfit from Boohoo with the budget of £35. In all honesty, it wasn't that hard, and if I cheated and simply went for dresses, then I probably could of got 2 or 3 outfits. I'm really impressed with the prices on Boohoo, and I can safely say that I don't think quality is compromised.

As I'm drawing nearer to the end of university life, I decided that I should start to update my wardrobe with more smarter pieces, that would be wearable at future interviews/work wear etc. Obviously some places I'd have to go more formal, but within the creative industry I think this would work quite well. This would also make a lovely date night outfit too!

I'm really in love with both pieces I picked. I've been after a leather look skirt for ages, and for £12 this wet look skirt fits my needs! I can't get over how pretty the top is either, I'll always love a collar, and this is a gorgeous one! I'd be lying if I said I wasn't considering purchasing the black version too!

What do you think of this outfit? What do you wear for work/interviews?

  2. That skirt is gorgeous and I adore the blouse. It's really nice to see this post as usually it's just a polyvore set and we never actually buy the outfit we rave about being so cheap :')
    I know what you mean about buying smart clothes for the future - I'm not even at uni yet but I'm always buying things and thinking 'this will be perfect for when I'm a teacher' haha xoxo

  12. This looks beautiful!! I love how the collar also substitutes for a necklace, some bling haha for law firms interviews we can only wear buttons ups sigh....so our work/interview appropriate attire can't be anything but conservative.

  13. Love the top, the collar is so nice. I dressed very casually when I go to work, mainly jeans and a jumper. When I go for an interview, I usually wear trousers, shirt and blazer, gotta give a good impression. :)

  14. Your post makes these pieces look better than Boohoo does I think - i am considering buying both now. Is the skirt quite short though? I always get self concious being tall and working in a smart office having short short dresses and skirts?
