Petite Outfit #10 Back to Front (Smart Casual/Date)

Boo!

I hope you've all had a fantastic weekend! Sorry for being a bit quiet lately, and for the coming weeks - I've got quite a busy few weeks ahead :( But today I thought I'd share a rather strange outfit.

Petite Outfit Idea: Nude Cami (Life as a Petite)

I say strange because I've actually worn this top back to front. Whaaa? A little weird I know :p But I hope it doesn't look too strange.

Cami's are very popular at the moment and I bought this a while back from Primark for £2.50 - an outfit post is never complete without a good bargain:p Although the original price was £5 I'm not sure I would've bought it if it were, esp for the way I'm wearing it.

Front - Back

As you can see the front is quite low cut, which wouldn't really be a problem if it fitted properly etc, but the straps were at a strange position so made the top quite inappropriate - that'll teach me to try things on before buying - but the queues in Primark are horrendously long..

I've added a bit of colour with a dark blue skirt. Although it looks black and is a bit of a cheat, I'm making an effort to move towards other colours :)

Cami: Primark
Clutch: Forever21
Skirt: Yesstyle // Here
Shoes: New Look

The song below is absolutely beautiful, a little twist on the usual Pachelbel's Canon in D.



What do you think of this little outfit? Do any of you do some 'strange' things like wearing tops back to front? Or is it just me:p 

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week :) Take care and speak soon!

  1. I like how you've paired things up here and I agree with the cami design. I think you did a fab job wearing it the other way round. Looks very chic in the end. xx Donah

  2. I love the outfit Tiny. You look so beautiful. A perfect date outfit honey. Is it strange to wear something backwards? I do this a lot when the back is nicer than the front, though, I wear dresses as skirts, tunics as dresses, blouses as cardigans, knitted coats as dresses...........and so so and so on........hmmm maybe I am weird, lol.

  4. Looking fab as always. I love the bag! I bet the low 'back' of the top looks great. It's always fun to show off different areas if skin other than the normal cleavage! Don't know if I'd be brave enought to wear something backwards although I think I have mistakenly!

  10. I totally do the same! I switch around tops to change it up every now and then, especially when they have plunging details like so. It can double your wardrobe in an instant when you find other ways to wear a certain piece of clothing. :)

  12. Thats a really great idea to wear it backwards. I know what you mean about the queues being super long in Primark.

  13. Love your cute outfit! Pretty clutch bag too! don't think it is weird wearing a top backwards as I have actually done this with a dress as I like the lace detailing to be at the front and not the back.

  17. Hi, Tiny. Your outfit is chic. I have only worn things backwards by accident but wearing these the other way around is definitely not out of the norm. Celebrities and celebrity stylists have admitted in interviews that they have done that deliberately. Your blog is good. I am glad I visited.

  28. I love your outfits.
    Its great to see a fashion blogger do something realistic and not the (tired) 15 photos in *slightly* different poses.
    I also love that all these pieces are affordable and you've put that top on back to front. Something a little different!
    Love the post and love your style!
