Bow Sleeves

OOTD feautring Shein top, H&M skirt and Zara OTK boots 1

I don't know about you, but I'm loving the trend for crazy sleeves right now. Whether they're ruffled, bell shaped, ribbon adorned, or, as in the case of this little Shein number, cut out and ribbon adorned, I am all over them. This black top is essentially like a cosy sweater, but then has these really interesting sleeve details. It would look cool with jeans and beat up trainers, but I also love it dressed up a little bit like this.

I found the skirt in H&M after a fairly lengthy search. I was looking for something to team with my new over the knee boots - more on these later as I'm obsessed, obsessed I tell you! - and nothing I had seemed to be quite right. Proper mini skirts just looked a bit too short and, well, a bit tarty with the boots. At the same time I wanted something that was still short enough to show them off. This one fit the bill perfectly and I think looks a lot pricier than H&M. It's a nice, thick twill material so it's perfect for winter. My only issue is there's not a huge amount of give around the waist, so it's perhaps not the best thing to wear out for a huge meal (which is precisely what I've worn it for.)

The boots are from Zara and I can't speak highly enough about them. They were around £55, which I think is brilliant for a pair of Zara boots. I'm guessing the fact that they're a sock boot style makes them that little bit more affordable, and if you're like me and have regular sized feet but skinny little calves, sock boots are the best style to go for in terms of fit anyway, so it's a win win! I feel like high street boots in general have been absolutely brilliant this season and these are definitely no exception. They're a great shape with a really nice block heel and they're comfortable to walk in too. Nice one Zara!

  4. Really love these sweaters they look so cute! I saw one on Missguided but chickened out about buying it, I really don't like my arms very much and worry it will emphasise their untoned state, thoughts? Love your skirt too, thanks for sharing xxx

    1. I think you should experiment! There are so many variations and different sleeve details, so I'm sure you'd find something you felt comfortable in. Not only that, but it's only a bit of your arms that's exposed, so I think you'd find it easier to wear than you think. x

  5. Gorgeous outfit, love the sleeve ties so cute! I worry it draws attention to the arms though and I hate my arms, so not sure if I will try out this trend for myself yet, thanks for sharing x
