OOTD-Singing In The Rain



After posting my very first 'OOTD' (scary stuff) I thought why not have a crack at this fashion thang, although I don't consider myself to be all that stylish who knows my posts may inspire someone, somewhere... and if all else fails take my posts as a fashion guide of 'How not to dress.'

Oh would you look at that Rinica's in monochrome again! It's okay guys and dolls don't call the fashion police I reassure you my wardrobe does contain some colour. Anyway everyone has that one fail safe comfy outfit in their wardrobe, the one you can chuck on without really thinking about it, the one you can eat lots of food in, this is mine. I've recently rekindled my love for my American Apparel leggings I enjoy pairing them with shirts, and polishing of the 'look' with my favourite kicks. If I'm not wearing Nike Blazers I usually just chuck on my Converse, New Balance or Vans. I will admit the American Apparel disco pants are super over priced but however much it pains me to say it there so worth it here's why-

They wash well (man when did I turn into my mum) no overstretching/baggy look you get with cheaper leggings
The colour lasts- No fading here folks
They're very slimming/flattering (especially around the waste line)
They're versatile
High quality and last a long time
They're not see through (sorry ladies that 'I can see your pants' look just ain't cool)

Shirt-Rihanna for River Island (Sold out)
Leggings American Apparel Disco Pants (Sold out) (I managed to get mine at £30 in the Asos Sale) 
Trainers- Nike Blazers

On a side note- I really want to get into posting more fashion related posts here on the blog, I know the pictures are a little amateurish at the moment what can I say I'm a not a natural born model, my poses are pretty awkward. If someone asks me to stand naturally I automatically go into my 'Jack the lad' pose (as demonstrated in picture 1.) If you have any tips or tricks for posing for outfit of the days please do let me know as it's something I'm working on. I also want to apologise in advance for the minimum make up look (I hadn't put my face on yet!) Oh and the weird blurry spot on my head (don't ask!)

Are you a fan of mixing formal/casual pieces? How do you style leggings?

P.S These New Look leggings here are kind of similar although there a little more matte looking and sadly have a button.

Loved this post! I am really jealous of those leggings and the shirt. Don't worry about feeling awkward, I think fashion shots are just something you've got to get used to (obviously easier said than done). I actually have the same problem, my normal stance is quite cheese-balls of sorts. I think it's great that you're venturing into more outfit posts. I think they are always a great addition to a blog and have been wanting to start taking outfit posts myself. I just don't have anyone to take pictures of my outfits (and it's rare that I'm not in lounging attire, haha). Anyway, much luck on the fashion posts.. I'm looking forward to more!!

Much Love,

Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for your kind words means a lot. Yano at the time it pained me to hand over £30 little did I know I got myself a mega bargain! I defo wouldn't pay £80 for them even though I can't imagine my wardrobe without them xx

Rinica Warner said...

Thanks for the comment/stopping by your comment made my day :D thanks for your kind words.I didn't realise how expensive the leggings retail at I got myself a mega bargain, I'm quite liking over sized shirts at the minute I saw some nice ones in river Island. I totally agree, I'm not really used to the posing side or showing clothing or pieces together, I'm glad I'm not the only one my posture is shocking too hopefully I'll improve in time. Aww thank you I have another outfit post lined up soon and thanks a lot I'm looking forward to my venture into fashion although similar to you I'm also in my umm lounge wear an awful lot lol x
