A Whole New Outfit | Topshop + Jord Wood Watches






As promised, I said that I would create a blog post which suggested a way of how to style a wooden watch, and seeing as lots of you were interested how, voila. Although, I must say that I wasn't expecting to go out and purchase a whole new outfit (not too surprisingly all from Topshop) in order to be able to wear this watch, but with the situation of me needing new clothes for DISNEYLAND (screams like a five year old but I am actually fifteen) I gathered, why not pair this wood watch with the outfit and see if it looks any good?

Luckily, it did. In my previous post, when I was reviewing the wood watch, from Jord, as a whole (see here), I suggested that the best way to style it would be with anything denim or colourful seeing as the watch itself is quite a dull, light brown but then it has the most amazing rose gold face. At the time, I wasn't even planning an outfit to fit with the watch, I mean I could have been subconsciously how cool would that have been but realistically I was just pottering around my local Topshop desperately trying to find some new clothes that didn't break the bank. (P.S. I failed on that one as you cannot not break the bank in Topshop).

Anyway, let's get on to what I brought.

First up, is a new pair of shorts. Now I must say that I took a grand total of six different pairs of shorts with me into the changing rooms (I could have taken more but six was the max) and I managed to have a love-hate relationship with the majority of them, this being because they all looked fabulous from the front, but as soon as you turn around a large content of butt is on show. Topshop, please sort out the cut of your shorts, because they really are lovely but for £30 a throw, I don't really want everyone to see more than is needed!! I settled with the best pair, the Moto Vintage Mom Shorts, which were £28. When I say the best pair I really mean that these still show a large amount of bum and tend to rise/roll up after a solid few hours, so possibly go for a size up when buying these as the waist isn't the roomiest either. I am torn between whether or not to sell these on/give them away to someone else and invest in a pair of shorts with more material or not, will inform you of my choice when it's made though.

Next, is this crop top from Topshop, and I've been seeing this style of top everywhere at the moment. I must say that it is quite tricky to wear regarding with what you are planning to wear underneath, the halter top steers it towards the you have to wear a strapless bra underneath it kind of look. But what couldn't you love about a cheap, stripey crop top which looks good with practically any bottoms.

Moving on to this grey jumper/sweatshirt (£30), when I saw this in the shop I instantly fell in love, and no not just because it feels like a snuggly teddy bear (yes it is that soft on both the outside and in) but because everything from the fit to the pattern was perfect. I recently wore this on a ten hour journey and I couldn't have been comfier, plus what really makes this jumper for me is the fact that it is relatively thin so it's perfect to just pull over in spring through to autumn.

So, there we have it, a quite expensive (but worth it, possibly aside from the short-shorts) fashion haul. Let me know if you have any items above, plus your opinions.

What have you recently purchased from Topshop which you love?

p.s. I've just got home from my trip to Disneyland Paris, so expect a blog post full of magical photos very soon!!

  13. This wood watch is just gorgeous and I love the way you styled it. This jumper looks so comfy! And I totally agree with you, it's so annoying that Topshop shorts don't cover your butt! I had the same problem, I had to try out a lot of them to finally find one that wouldn't display my bottom.

  15. I don't own anything from TopShop because I find the sizes to be way too small for me. I'm usually an S or XS but back in Malaysia, I would be lucky to fit into a M with TopShop. Not sure if the size varies between Asian and Western countries.

    1. Oh no! Topshop sizing is pretty accurate here in the UK, some of the items are smaller than what said but not as bad as what you are saying.

  23. I never shop in Topshop as I feel like the sizes are too small and I'm quite curvy. I do like the look of that sweatshirt though, looks super cosy x

  27. I know exactly what you mean about Topshop shorts, I always find that they're too short at the back! Absolutely love this watch though, so gorgeous! x
