Next Christmas Wishlist
Since I’ve gotten a bit older, my appreciation of Next has grown. My mum used to dress me head-to-toe in Next at a young age but when you get to your teenage years, you think you’re too cool for Next. For the past year or so, I’ve found myself buying more and more from the store. I feel my personal style has evolved recently to a more simple, sophisticated look (well, most of the time anyway!). Next sell the best staple pieces that I’ve found on the high street; I constantly wear their boyfriend jeans as they are sold in different lengths and it’s so hard for me to find good-fitting petite jeans. I do find their sizes are generous so I’d recommend trying the clothes on in store first! Anyways, onto the actual post! Next are running a blog competition with your ultimate wishlist and 5 winners will get one item each off their own! How cool is that? So here’s mine:
I’ve put a wide range of items on here as I think these best describe my personal style. First up is this gorgeous pink peplum jumper. I wear jumpers quite a lot at the moment; I find they’re perfect for uni with my boyfriend jeans and this is a bit more dressy. I’ve got a lovely pink and mint green bib necklace that would look so cute with this. Next up is this black metallic vest. I’ve got so many cute skirts and no cute tops to match them with! This would be perfect for a Christmas night out paired with a leather skirt, strappy heels and a leather jacket.
On a Sunday for work because I’m in charge, I get to wear whatever I want; however, because it’s work I still like to dress smartly. Both this white and pink shirt will look great with skinny trousers or a pencil skirt. Of course we all have a Christmas party/meal to attend and this navy dress would be perfect for that. It’s smart and sexy without being too over-the-top. You could even wear it with a blazer over it and wear it to the office!
Next up are these black skinny jeans. I’ve been after some for ages and these legging-fit ones would be ideal for tucking into my biker boots or Chelsea boots. These grey boyfriend jeans will be perfect for spring/summer with pumps and a jumper for when it’s slightly warmer outside! They will also go perfectly with these nude brogues. A couple of years ago, I lived in brogues constantly but I always wore dark colours like black and brown. A nude pair are just a bit more girly and summery.
Even though I’ve got my winter coat for this year, I did just throw away my khaki parka last month and need a replacement! This one looks like my ideal coat. Warm, comfy, lots of pockets. I like to have a casual coat for daytime and a dressy one for night occasions. When it gets to the warmer months and I don’t need a coat, I love a snazzy jacket. If you’ve read my blog previously, you know I usually opt for a leather jacket but the print on this biker jacket is so stylish! To make it stand out as much as possible, I’d wear with an all black or monochrome outfit so it pops.
