Laced up..











The 'New In' section of the River Island website, no actually the entire website, is probably my favourite place on the Internet! It seems to be a ritual of mine - every day I need to check it to see if anything else amazing has been added, then add it to my ever growing wish list. These items weren't too long in the wish list though; black & lace up? Sold!! 
Lace up shoes are definitely one of my favourite things to come out of the past few seasons, I love everything about them- the stiletto heel, making you stand taller so they make your legs appear longer; the slightly edgy look about them, which adds so much to any outfit; I find they make your feet look smaller too haha and the fact most of them are suede like these ones 😍 These will go with almost every little thing I have in my wardrobe so we're definitely a good investment- these are coming to London Fashion Week with me for sure! 
Again, lace up is a massive trend for SS15 (and will carry into AW15) it is everywhere, not just shoes - so when I saw this top I loved it! There have been a few different variations of this top where I've seen this style come right down past your chest, but I personally think that's too much on show, especially for people like me who have nothing to show haha (and I feel it takes away from the effect the lace up has, when people will be staring at something else haha) so this little bit was perfect! It's long sleeved and black, so you focus all your attention on this little bit of detail on it! This time of year can be so difficult to find clothes for, because it's in 'inbetween' stage of the year, between summer ending and autumn starting- but black and white carry right through each one, so this takes the hard work out of it! This top is small fitting and quite short so I had to buy one size up to accommodate for that.
Also the past few times that I've worn these jeans, people have asked me about them, I usually get mine in Vera Moda, but these ones are from Pull & Bear. They are high waisted, which I love because my torso is really long compared to my legs, and most jeans are too low for me- I had to go down a size in these and they wash like a ribbon-  £20 as well, complete bargain! Thanks for reading, love Emma xx
