We found love in a hopeless place

Burgundy heart print shirt - Topshop
Black super soft skinny jeans - Primark (similar)
Black pointed patent flats - Zara (similar)

Not a bad location for an outfit post eh? More on the beautiful city of Paris in another post as I may have gotten a bit snap happy over the weekend. I brought this shirt on a whim on payday. Completely overpriced but completely right up my street too. I'd been lusting over the Burberry heart print and knew as soon as I spotted this I just had to take it home. I'm getting quite partial to a shirt recently as they work so well for work as well as everyday casual use. I try to multi-task when I can! I can't wait to wear it tucked into a black midi skirt (when I buy one) and a pair of black cigarette pants (again when I buy a pair). These super soft black skinnies are the best things invented - I think I have three pairs of the exact black jeans at my last count. At only £11 they are a complete bargain and fit me like a glove. Jean shopping does have a tendency to be quite stressful.

  15. Wahooo love these pics! And this shirt is a dream!

  16. I love the shirt and the location - perfect post!

  17. Primark's super soft skinny jeans are incredible, I constantly rave about them to my friends whenever they're bemoaning having to go jean shopping ha. And the shirt might be slightly pricey, but it's gorgeous and a bit of a classic, really, so you can totally tell yourself it's an investment buy.
    On a side note: I don't think I've ever been this jealous of another blogger's backdrop xx

  18. oh look at you just casually doing an outfit post in Paris ;) love that blouse xx
