Out of My Comfort Zone

I love mixing styles by dressing things up or down and I've taken that to the extreme with this outfit to the point where I feel a bit Lily Allen-esque. The white skirt is a really old Topshop one that's quite out of my comfort zone both because it's white which means I'm terrified of getting it dirty and also because it's quite poofy (yes that is the technical term) which isn't my usual style.


Going further out of my comfort zone I decided to wear this Puma top that I usually wear with jeans on a weekend, but I just knew it would go and also help dress down the skirt. I'm not usually one to don active wear when I'm not being, well, active, but the print on this top is kind of too pretty to waste on just exercising and I quite like the contrast of the sports logo against the pretty print.

I swore to myself I'd try not to wear my Tu trainers again in a post, but they just went so well with this outfit that I couldn't not and I am actually wearing them this much!






Top - Asos (out of stock, but similar here)
Skirt - Topshop (old)
Trainers - Tu (no longer online)

What do you think of this outfit? Do you like mixing styles?
