bank fashion: black co-ord

I have something I have to get off my chest. This is my first co-ord. Talk about behind on the times, eh? But the ever so lovely BANK have fixed all that with this lovely textured two-piece. It's that sort of waffle/embossed polka dot mash up texture which means I can't stop twiddling with this skirt as I wear it. This can obviously be dressed up for party season with a pair of heels and statement necklace, or with a sheer overlay and some chunky sandals. 

But dressing up isn't really my thing any more (this is actually shocking if you knew me a few years ago) so I teamed it with my faithful new balance trainers and a massive checked shirt for comfort. I'm still not sure if the space buns and crop top is too 2013-space-grunge, but let's just roll with it. I kinda like how my new mystic mood choker matches my cute ankle socks from BANK too. Cute!

baby grafea backpack

So a little while ago you may know that I did a streetstyle shoot with the amazing brand that is Grafea. I've been obsessed with their bags for ages so when I got the chance to style one I may have got a teeny bit excited. The lovely Amy from Grafea took these photos, thank you so much for having me! And you can see the post on the Grafea blog right here including a little Q&A with little old me. I feel like I've said little a lot in this paragraph...but it was a little backpack!

bank fashion: checked skirt

Hello and welcome to the second part of my mini series with bank! This checked skirt from glamorous may be my favourite item of late, its got an air of the sixties about it, and the smaller, detailed check differentiates itself from most other clueless-inspired checked skirts on the market at the moment.

I wore this look to attend Celebration of Style the other day, and although most others there were in heels with curly blows, I didn't feel too underdressed thanks to my sassy over the knee boots and new mood choker. How nineties of me. Plus obligatory poloneck because it's that time of year.

Life's been that busy lately that I took these photos considerably later than sunset, which explains the crummy indoor lighting. Hope you'll forgive me!

If you're thinking of getting this skirt for yourself, which you should, because it's also part of a co-ord which would look super cute this party season, take note it is online only and seeing as you can't try it on, I would suggest sizing down. I got a 10 and it's not a disaster, I still wear it obviously, but I might have to take it in a little at the waist!

Good vibes guys
