I knew as soon as I began this challenge that I wanted to make an outfit using a black midi skirt. I fell in love with it's femininity straight away. I decided to opt for the slight mix of feminine and masculine materials because I think they look great together and can really dress up and down an outfit. The jumper is one of my Autumn favourites from H&M's collection and I knew I wanted to layer it with a plain white shirt. You could even pair it with a mustard shirt to match the animal motif, however I couldn't find one and I do think the white shirt breaks it all down a little so it's a muted outfit, perfect for a date, for a meal with friends or even shopping. I saw these wedges in my local H&M last week and knew they would be comfortable. They're super light and have a chunky platform both at the front of back which makes them easy to walk in and perfect for any occasion. They also do a lovely grey colour! I don't think I'd personally buy the tights from H&M as you can get a lot cheaper at somewhere like Primark (I could have chosen a little something else too, damn!). I love the rings. I think it's important to add a little bit of colour into a black and white outfit; even if it's just a nail colour or even a lipstick. I love the way the owl's eyes match in with everything. I didn't choose a necklace because of the animal motif; you don't want to look too overdone!

total: my outfit comes in at a total of £99.91 so I shall leave it at that! Huge thank you to Abby for involving me in the £100 outfit challenge!

lots of love, Ashleigh x - www.ashllyd.com
