‘Jeans & Nice Top’ – My forte! 

I came across the above quote the other day and I was like THAT IS ME! Like I have NEVER related to something more. The only difference being, its not always jeans, but it is some sort of trouser/short complimented by a nice top combo! Nice tops, are legit my saving grace when it comes to getting dressed!

Now I always used to be a dress kinda girl, but it seems over the past year or so my style has changed (maybe because I am super lazy, and the thought of shaving my legs or even attempting fake tan makes me want to crawl into a small hole)

However. I am really still digging my “nice top” phase. It’s easy. It’s convenient & most of all its recyclable – I can wear the same bottom half over and over without feeling like I have committed the whole “repeated outfit” crime.

Seeing the above quote and with it being so relatable, I decided to scroll through my Instagram and see how many times my outfits are made by ‘nice tops’ – turns out, pretty much every damn outfit. Here’s my most recent and favs!

1 – The White Shirt

I am still really obsessed with this outfit. The saying “less is more” – really springs to mind here. It’s easy, its fashionable and it’s classy! Adding a patterned/colour clutch gives it the perfect finish! The chiffon material is really light (so no sweat patches for me, amen!) – and I can totally see me using this next over a bikini at the beach!

Shirt: H&M


2- The Bardot Babe

Bardot tops are a prominent part of 2017. So I obviously had to get my hands on one (or 10) and I won’t lie – this top in particular has become a life saver on many occasions this year. Again, I’m lazy – so it’s easy and comfortable! It adds an essence of “sex appeal” showing off a bit of the back & shoulder (And sex appeal is something I need as much of as I can!) – Finishing this outfit off with a top knot, shows off the top and keeps the outfit cool & stylish!

Top from: A little hightstreet shop in Walthamstow for like £5!!

3 – Beach shorts combo

Now I don’t always match my nice tops to just jeans, I do venture out sometimes. My beach shorts from Primark was just sitting in my wardrobe so I thought I’d put them to good use, pairing it with my chiffon flared sleeve top! This outfit kept me quite literally in my comfort zone, and I had so many compliments on this little mish mash combo! Proving you can take beach shorts to a whole new level! The power of a nice top is endless!

4 – Cami Comfort!

Cami tops are my go to! Especially when they come in stand out colours, and have a “flow” to them! They make causal summer dinner outfits easy to put together and look really fresh and clean. The Pom was an accidental match, but I’m really loving this whole lilac vibe. And who doesn’t love a ball of fur? huh?!

Cami: Boohoo


5 –  Lingerie Blag

I love this cami! The silk complimented these trousers perfectly, and the little bit of lace and criss cross back gave the outfit a bit of sass! Proving, with the right top you can make any pair of trousers look 100% nicer!

Cami: Primark (lingerie section) £2!!!!!

  6 – No fear for shear!

So this outfit was inspo from Kim K – (if you close your eyes you can see the resemblance) – I mixed this shear polo neck with a bralet and I won’t lie I felt pretty cool. I styled the outfit with a top knot, to fully portray my no fear for the shear!

Roll Neck from: Bonnie & Clyde, Loughton.

Those are just a selection of my fav Out-fits created by Nice Tops! Nice tops are legit my saviour in life.

You do not need to be in a dress to be dressy, a nice top can do just that for you! Maybe one day, I will fight my laziness , shave my legs and get switch up my vibe – but for now I am really quite content with the ‘Nice Top’ life and I am gonna embrace it!

If you are a nice top and jeans kinda girl, message me with me your fav outfits and share the love! XO

(P.s totally aware I rinse the same pair of shoes, I do not get out often and comfort is my life)

Hello lovely's thanks for stumbling by. If you are a returning reader, thanks for your continuous loving. If you are new here, welcome to the show (and again, thanks for the love) So you are probably on this page to find out the nitty & gritty of me eh? As much as I would love to brag that I am this really cool chick who occasionally fire breathes on the weekends for fun, that would be an awful not even funny lie.  Gosh, introductions- they are kinda awkward huh? No pressure.  My name is Leanne Lilly (more often than not, known and addressed as 'Lil') I am a 25 year old woman on a mission to sprinkle positivity, empowerment, fun and realness onto my fellow human beings.  I have a passion for writing and a love of over sharing with my straight up sally attitude, I embrace my voice & have no fear of sharing it. I guess I have just always had a thing for giving my opinion & expressing my advice. I am an over sensitive, big-hearted, cry baby who is majorly compassionate, understanding and giving, but who also has daily breakdowns, mood swings, & take's no shit. But I will always speak my truth. I suppose there is many aspects to this personality.  With that said it will be no suprise that this is a Mish-Mash Life Style Blog. A Blog that is home to everything and everything. You wouldn't find me in a specific genre, because I do not think you could tie my life down (let alone my personality) to one genre. This is just a Diary if you like of a truth-speaking, real talking girl. It follows my life, my feelings, my funny side (yes, I find myself funny) and all the shit that goes down in-between. And you will probably find a bit of TMI. Often. Sorry in advance.  Disclaimer: I am NOT a grammar goddess, so don't get all grammar police on my ass. (Pretty please) P.s... When I was 7 Year's old, I asked my mum what she thought I would be when I was older "A writer or something to do with writing" - I was FUMING. I wanted to be a pop star. Years on, here I am passionately writing away & loving it. Moral of the story: Mum's are always right.
