Off The Shoulder Lace

Whenever I get the chance to show off my beautiful hometown of Stratford Upon Avon I take it, especially when it comes to my blog outfits. By the Avon there are plenty of little walkways to explore the quieter side of the town, it's the perfect place to relax with a good book and take in the views or a chance to get some beautiful photography like I do. This particularly summer look was taken by Holy Trinity Church which is well known as Shakespeare is laid to rest there and it is so picturesque, I almost felt like I was in a fairy tale.

Before I start rambling on about this beautiful place I call home, let me acknowledge my outfit. Three trends: off the shoulder, lace and leather come together to make the perfect romantic, summer look and I love it!

The off the shoulder, lace top is from Stradivarius which is the sister brand to Zara and let me tell you know a lot cheaper, but still so stylish! I was first introduced to the brand when I was in Tenerife on holiday years ago and they also have many stores in Barcelona where I am going on Thursday, apologies in advance to my bank balance! They only have three stores in the UK, two in London and one in Manchester I'm keeping my fingers crossed they may come to Birmingham but until then I can shop from the comfort of my own home. Which is where I bought this top for just £5.99! The bust area is wired so unlike other off the shoulder tops it doesn't fall down and the leaf design makes it a beautiful piece to wear day or night.

I have styled the off the shoulder top with a light blue leather skirt from my other favourite shop New Look, this was also a bargain at just £8! The skirt is so versatile, I could wear it with lots of different colours and leather never goes out of style. I finished off my look with my white cutout sandals (£22.50) from La Redoute which have a small heel making them easy to wear for a night out or a daytime stroll.

Have you visited Stratford? What's your favourite piece from my outfit?
