Cold shouldered Cleopatra

boots: topshop

I couldn't have jumped out of bed any quicker this morning when I heard the doorbell ring with my ASOS delivery parcel! I ordered this extreme cut-out shoulder top featuring a monochrome graphic print along with a black version and a rose gold spiked necklace, all of which I love. I decided to wear this top today with my usual black AA high-waisted lycra leggings. I love the low cut-out shoulder shape of the top, sometimes it feels like it's slipping down your arm but I really like the loose look. I also love the graphic print, I'm not usual a 'print' fan but this one is quite subtle in a way. I wasn't too sure about over doing the jewellery with this outfit but I actually think this large gold cuff necklace makes the outfit. I tried on my thinner rose gold cuff necklace but it didn't look right, it needed something large enough to cover the neckline. 

As I bought this top in a plain black version as well, I was on the hunt for some patterned leggings today as my AA black ones will look too black. I didn't have any luck but found these embellished leggings on ASOS but I'm not too sure they would be flattering on my short legs! The majority of patterned leggings I've come across have been quite tacky so any recommendations are welcome! I also posted some shoes on my eBay last night so for anybody interested here is the link and I will be adding some clothes later next week.


  1. the necklace and the top so go well together and compliment them both beautifully xx

  2. You look so pretty, I love your jewellery and watch:)

  3. Great blog. I've followed. I love all your outfits.

  4. That top is gorgeous, and the necklace goes perfectly with it :)
    You should definitely buy those leggings, they're really unique xx
