SHEER TOPS & JELLY SHOES

I met up with my friend Nitya last week (when London was sunny) and I arrived in jelly shoes. We’d been chatting for a little while and walking around, looking for somewhere to eat when I told her I was wearing jelly shoes. She looked down and burst out laughing and so did I. I honestly don’t know why I decided to wear them, but I saw them on my way out and decided, ‘those are going on my feet today’. Most people find jelly shoes a bit funny because we wore them as kids in primary school, so wearing them as a twenty something year old is a little bit comical. Me being me though and not a big follower of trends, I felt so cute and unique. They’re actually quite comfortable and even more so with socks. (Now I’m taking it too far now aren’t I?) Haha!

Also, everyones been asking about this sheer bubble top and I hate to say it, but it’s all sold out now. 🙁 I purchased it last Christmas during ZARA’s boxing day sale, but what’s interesting about that is, because I was in Nigeria, I couldn’t try it on. Okay you’re probably thinking, ‘But we all online shop, it’s no biggie’, That IS true, however there are certain items I tend not to buy online because I can’t imagine how it’ll fit. This top for example is all sheer fabric, so I wasn’t quite sure. As it turns out, it looks but I’m glad I took the small risk because I think it looks great on me and so did the stranger on Oxford Street. 😀

Hope you’re all having a great start to the week!
