(boots - asos... skirt - primark... top - eBay... necklace - primark... cap - jay z merch)
last week, i was a very very lucky girl. i got to see jay z at the o2 arena, not once...but twice. the day after each other. ridiculous. the first day (friday) was even more special, as me and my bf got to watch the gig from the luxuries of an o2 box - courtesy of his fantastic job.
i wasn't too sure what to wear in a box. when i think about a private box at the o2 i think of celebs lapping it up and drinking champers. so, i tried to do a budget version of what i imagine that is like... the dress code said 'smart casual', and i like to think i managed it. i decided when having a browse in primark that i should give the maxi skirt a try. i've never been one for maxi dresses, not even in the summer, i just feel a bit uncomfortable in them. but, this skirt proved me wrong. the slit up the side gave it a different vibe, and i love the dark grey colour and the high waist. it's the right amount of smart and the right amount of grunge, and when teamed with my black asos boots i felt it worked perfectly. i ummed and aahed about the top, but settled on, you guessed it, a black crop top with a high neck. to give the outfit a lil bit of pazzazzzzz i decided to chuck on my multi-chain necklace from primark. overall, i loved the look, and that skirt is one of my favourite purchases!
my bf was kind enough to buy me a cap from the merch stand (if you're reading joe, sorry i'm not wearing it far enough down my head, i forgot...) and it's perfect for shoving on when you're having a bad hair day. i loveee it :)
the next day (saturday) when i saw jay z again i was standing, so i didn't dress as smartly as, let's face it, everything would have got ruined. i didn't get to do an outfit post on that outfit due to the top being joe's, but i wore a brooklyn nets jersey and my cap with leggings and nikes. standard, comfortable, and perfect for jumping about to TOM FORD in.
until next time... xo
