Petite Outfit #11 Casual Sunday (Casual)

Boo!

How has everyone's week been? :) The weather has been absolutely fantastic but I wanted to show you all a little casual Sunday outfit.

alma mottled structured day bag
Usually I would wear t-shirts with jeans or shorts, but I thought I'd spice things up a little bit with a blouse. I got this blouse from Forever21 in Hong Kong, and as they had a buy one get one free sale, I bought this top, and some smart shorts (as seen in THIS post) for $120 which is about £9! As a petite I prefer ¾ length shirts, I'm not sure why...do any of you ladies have a preference too?

Flats have always been 'in' but last year, ballet pumps were very hot. When I first saw them, I was wondering why people were wearing their ballet shoes out:p One of my friends actually had a pair so I asked her where she got them from: Topshop, and if I can recall correctly, they were £18 or so. I thought that was a little steep for some plain flats so found some for much cheaper from New Look. As I got them last year, I don't think they do the same anymore, but I have linked very similar ones below :) 
Casual Outfit Idea
This mint necklace was featured in my 'Mint Heaven for £20 post' HERE and I am still loving it - the colour, how it sparkles, and is just a fab way to lightened up an outfit :)

As you may know, I am a sucker for bargains. I try to either get things on sale or get them at good prices. I have never shopped at A&F or Hollister or Gilly Hicks, just because I find their things far too expensive for what you get...having said that, these jeans I'm wearing are from A&F. But (as a little cheat) J bought them for me whilst he was in America last year. Things there are so much cheaper, and these were on sale for £20!

Finally the bag. I've never really been a handbag sort of person, but since last year I've been slowly getting into them, esp more structured/squared shaped bags, like this one. I actually posted about this in my Boohoo Obssession post:p For any bag, I always try my best to get ones that have a zipper for the main compartment too, which this one does :)

Necklace: Amazon // HERE 
Ballet Pumps: New Look // Similar

I hope you all liked this little outfit - what do you usually wear on Sundays?



My exams are finally over! But I might still be a bit quiet on here for the next few weeks. I've been lucky enough to get an internship but won't have any internet to write up any posts or comments etc (and I don't have 3G :O) :( But I hope you all had a fabulous weekend :) Enjoy the rest of your day and have a great week! 



Take care and speak soon!
