Hello, folks. How’s life been your end? Busy? Work n stuff, yeah me too. A short one this evening for you.

I haven’t blogged in a while, and it’s mainly just because my new job means that I don’t get in until twenty to seven-ish, and it means that after dinner and having a small sit down it’s about time for bed. I need about 8 hours of sleep, which means I’m normally in bed at about 10 (so rock ‘n’ roll), so I don’t always have too much time in the evenings to be honest!

But enough about me, let’s talk about this outfit, shall we? Because I totally felt like a 70s pimp wearing this. I mean, the hat, the faux fur shoulders, the high-waisted trousers… all I needed was a cane and I would have been sorted.

Mark, the absolute genius, found these trousers in the Topshop sale, so they were a bargain at £20. Aren’t they giving you gothic circus vibes? Like I’m hosting a clown party in my pants and I’m the evil one. Sorry not sorry, It.

The Disturbia top is one that I have been after for a while. The design is just to die for with the ladies and the skulls and the hats and the text. Urgh, gorgeous. Normally I’m not too confident with my arms out, something about it makes me feel a bit exposed, and I don’t really like the way my arms look sometimes, but when I was wearing it for these pictures I felt good!

The Killstar jacket and the Restyle hat totally topped this outfit off and I was totally feeling myself in it. Seriously though, I wish I had a cane.

How would you style these trousers? What time do you go to bed? Answers below please…

Let's start a personal, meaningful conversation.

Example: Practical philosopher, therapist and writer.

That outfit looks amazing on you, I love the pants and how you’ve styled them! If I were to try something else, I’d try and find a floor length, see-through cardigan to really work with those stripes and elongate the trousers even further.

I’m one of those disturbed people who can function pretty well without sleep but I normally get about 6 hours/night (even on days when I don’t have to set the alarm).

YES GIRL! This outfit is mad! I’m so uber jealous of you and your style!
And I agree 100%, you need a cane … with a skull on top, think Marilyn Manson tainted love spec.
