FASHION: URBAN OUTFITTERS & OLIVIA BURTON


I was doing some post-Christmas shopping in January and found this lovely monochrome flower crop top by Cooperative in Urban Outfitters. 

Now, I know what some of you are thinking - that's a bold print, and yes you're right but i'm trying to experiment a little more with my wardrobe this year. It's one of those tops that I see hanging in the shop, I'll think to myself "that looks lovely" but generally I don't purchase items like this for fear that they won't suit me or the pattern will be too overpowering. However,  when I saw this I knew I had to have it. I think it has a very classic look to it and the material is so soft and comfortable. I love roses and long sleeved tops too so after a little deliberation in my head as I stood looking at it, it was a no-brainer.

This top can be easily dressed up or down. It looks lovely paired with black skinny jeans, some gold jewellery and a pair of heels. I also wore this top quite recently to work paired with a black pencil skirt, black heeled boots and some simple gold jewellery, it's really versatile but I like to keep the rest of what I wear simple due to the bold print. I also think it looks gorgeous with my Olivia Burton Big Dial Black & Gold watch. It gives the outfit (and any outfit) a touch of sophistication! I've had countless complements wearing this watch and it's never off my wrist! 


What do you think about wearing bold prints?

  1. That tops lovely! I'm not usually into bolder prints but this one's lovely ��, I think because it's just black and white I don't think it is overly bold and like 'whoah'. That watch is so pretty too, definitely classic and modern! Lovely post girly ��

  3. I *always* wear prints so I am in love with this top. The print is quite subtle by my estimations (but then I wear things akin to 70's curtains) but the monochrome should ease you into wearing pattern!

    Also, that watch is amazing! Is it quite big on? I have child sized wrists.

  4. Yeah I thought it might be a bit loud for me at first but I love it now!

    Haha I have child sized wrists too. The face is quite big but that's what attracted me to it at first, you could always try it on in a shop if you were interested in seeing what it looked like on you :)
