Forever 21 is continuing to help me knock things off my Christmas wish list thanks to the very generous gift card that comes part and parcel with their blogger challenge. Thus, I give unto thee my second summer outfit – a cullotes and crop top number that sounds like every woman’s nightmare but is actually easy to pull off, provided you know the rules.
The first is that culottes are a lot more flattering if you wear them with a heel to give your legs a little length. As far as crop tops go, those that reveal a little strip of skin above your belly button (and never the button itself) are pretty forgiving and, dare I say it, classier than any other variant?
As far as accessories go, I’m very much a less is more kind of girl and this simple cuff (R49) is speaking my language.
Shoes-wise, block heels and metallics are bid news in the fashion world right now and these babies (R599) – which are super comfy by the way – are a great way to tick both boxes.
You like? Don’t forget that my competition is still running and a R2 100 Forever 21 gift card is up for grabs. You’ll find all the finer details regarding that over here but, in short, all you have to do is like my outfit post on Instagram (I’m @lipglossgirlxoxo) or leave a comment below telling me what you’d most like to buy using the voucher.
A big lipglossy thank you to Leah Hawker for her incredible photography skills.
