Whilst I like to think I'm quite adventurous with my wardrobe, in reality I'm quite predictable in my shopping habits. Show me a floral blouse, smock dress or anything with a collar detail and I'm there! Having said that, sometimes it's nice to step out of your style comfort zone and opt for something which is a little bit of a diversion from the norm, and my outfit from yesterday was structured around a piece I would never have envisaged myself buying:

 Top- Urban Outfitters
Skirt- c/o Clothing at Tesco
Shoes- Topshop
Rings- Topshop

After having a good old browse of the Urban Outfitters website when I got home from my holiday, I found myself really drawn to the graphic print on this t-shirt. With a 15% discount code at the ready, I swiftly added it to my basket and waited for it to arrive on my doorstep- expecting that when it turned up I wouldn't like it at all and it would be returned within a matter of seconds! Thankfully, however, this couldn't be further from the truth, and it's a purchase which really paid off! I bought it with this outfit in mind, after thinking about how I could style this skirt from Tesco (my love of which is very well documented in this post!), and I think the two work really well together. The graphic print is something which I wouldn't ordinarily go for, but the contrasting black and white pattern makes it really eye-catching, and I really like the fit too. Rest assured that this is about as 'high fashion' as I get though- I'm sure I'll be back in jeans and a jumper tomorrow!

Do you like dressing out of your comfort zone? And have you made any out of character purchases recently?
