I need tops!


Leather look sleeve checked tee £14.99 (here)

Monochrome checked boxy tee - £12.99 (here

I'm one of those girls, that has loads of "bottoms". Skirts, shorts, leggings, disco pants, the (occasional) pair of jeans, but I've no tops. I went through a phase of only wearing dresses and skirts until the emergence of disco pants. I slowly started adding trousers* into my wardrobe and I haven't looked back. However, there is one problem; I have no tops. I nipped into New Look and saw these two gems; so I had to snap them up. I'm still on the hunt for more tops though so I'll keep you all updated. 

*I say trousers; I really mean disco pants and those type of legging trouser thingys. But, it's still progress.

Is there anything that you need in your wardrobe right now?

  4. I need more tops too! For some reason I always buy bottoms (mostly leggings) and dresses, so when I look for casual outfits to wear, I only have like 3 tops to choose from...

  5. When I trained as a personal shopper we were taught that 70% of the time, when us girls go shopping, we end up buying yet again another top. And I can say that I definitiely fit that statistic. Whereas you are obviously in the 30% that is more likely to buy bottoms. I struggle I think because with jeans / trousers if they fit me in the leg they won't fit me across my waist. I guess I could always do with more bottoms. Apparently most women when buying tops, always buy the same type of top so its posssible to have plenty of tops but they're all pretty much the same!...just something to think about!

  30. I also have a huge problem with shirts... But it is also because I don't really know what goes well with my figure. All the shirts these days are really wide and hide your waist. And i'm a little afraid that they make me look like a little dwarf hihi
