Asymmetric hem love

I've been really attracted to asymmetric hems lately (is this the word for long at back, short at front? I kinda want to call it a 'mullet hem'!) I got this blouse from the Topshop sale the other day, as a slightly more interesting option to bung on with leggings or jeans. Or jeggings as I'm wearing here!

(The necklace is from H&M, the jeggings are H&M Kids)

Meet my new boots, they're called Abbi from ASOS and were only £38! They're not real leather but they look pretty good for it and are just SO comfy. They are total dupes for Topshop's Allegras, and I remember when Lily once mentioned to me that she considered her Allegras as flats because they were that easy to walk in, I remember thinking that I couldn't imagine ever saying that about heels and that she must be kraykray, but the girl was right! These are comfier than my eBay cheapies which are less of a high heel. Needless to say I've barely taken these bad boys off since they arrived! Just perfect for every day wear when you want something a bit fancier than flats.

In other news, all is fab with me! The job continues to amaze me... I interviewed Mark Fast the other day (and confessed that I blagged my way to third row behind Kanye at LFW without an invite... Me and my big mouth! Luckily he took it in good humour!), have been going to loads of cool beauty events and may be going to the premiere of Katy Perry's movie next week. I still can't believe it all!

I'm off to buy some bread for the teeny baby ducks that have just hatched in the river by my house! I could watch them all day, they're just so cute!

  12. Heard people calling them mullet hems, but that just makes me think of a redneck. :)
    I like dip hem, or fishtail hem. Whatever you want to call it, I like that shirt. And the necklace.
    And if you ever (as if you would) get bored of the job, send it my way eh. ;)

  18. i love this look, and totally agree the asymmetric hem adds a little edge to an otherwise 'standard' outfit, same with dip skirts and dresses, gives it a little edge. Really love the necklace in this outfit too :)

  20. Those boots are bloody amazing <3 Ducklings sound adorable - eight ducks turned up in our garden a couple of months ago and now one has hatched eight ducklings! They're the sweetest things. My Mum spends a fortune every week buying them special "duck crumbs" ha!

  23. Love the boots! Comfy heels sound pretty amazing :)

    I have no idea what they are called though- I usually begin hand gesturing in an attempt to describe them and fail. "Mullet hems" works :) xx

  27. I'm a sucker for those drop hems too , have bought about 10 dresses in different colours, fabrics & patterns so I can wear them in the day & night (find it very difficult to find long dresses to wear in the day)

    Loving the posts as usual , look forward to the next :)

  28. I'm so glad everything is going so well for you! You thoroughly deserve it. That sounds odd since I don't know you, but your blog has always been fantastic and you seem like a truly lovely gal too! Also, this outfit is lovely and I may need to upgrade my eBay knockoffs to these ASOS uns!

  37. I have a bad tale about my Allegras. I spent about an hour walking around Leeds in them on Saturday night and my feet now resemble two chunks of raw meat. Seriously, the top layer of skin has been taken off the balls of my feet!! I completely don't understand why though because I've had them for like a year and they've never hurt me before!! Maybe I should have gone for the cheap alternative haha x
