Tropical World


Shirt - Topshop / Disco Pants - American Apparel / Necklace - Marc Jacobs

Denim shirts aren't something I wear too often. I always find them a bit too stiff and I have to make a concious effort not to wear jeans with them for fear of looking like a double denim disaster. I spotted this lovely pink one on the Topshop website and was very tempted to buy it. Then I saw a girl in Leeds wearing it and it looked about 1000x better in real life which took it from 'ooh I like it' status to 'I need it now!'. My sister kindly bought this for me as a birthday pressie and I absolutely love it. Especially the contrasting white collar. Its really comfy without being too thin either. Love my disco pants too. I'd say to go for the originals if you're after comfort, quality and that awesome sucking in effect. I never buy full price American Apparel stuff anymore, theres almost always a discount code knocking about so I bought these a few months ago for just £50. Still don't think I've got this whole topknot thing down. Despite what people told me on Instagram, I'm 99% sure I look like a tit.

I stupidly wore this the other day when we visited Tropical World in Leeds. If the name doesn't completely give it away Tropical World is home to many creatures including butterflies, meerkats, snakes, bats & crocodiles and it is very very hot inside. Disco pants aren't the greatest thing to wear when its a bit hot, let alone in a room heated to 40 degrees! At least it was a good excuse to eat lots of white chocolate Magnums afterwards while strolling around Roundhay Park. The best part was the baby meerkats. So tiny! Squee!

  12. So strange, I was at Tropical World the other day too! Your outfit is gorgeous but I can understand why it wasn't a good idea to wear it to Tropical World, so glad I was just in a dress! Hope you enjoyed your day, I loved it!

  14. Love the shirt, the thought of you wearing it to Tropical World just conjours up images of you absolutely covered in butterflies thinking you were a flower :D

    I looove meerkats! I know a guy who has a couple and I used to go over to play with them when they were babies, they're hilarious and make the cutest little noises.

  15. I think your topknot looks very polished and cute Caroline! I'm useless at them, I just can't seem to get the right shape and end up with hair flaying about in all directions. I wish I could pull of this denim top but pink is the most awful colour on me and I look like a right tit! I agree with waiting for the American Apparel discounts, they are always floating about and I did the same with my disco pants as parting with the full £70 odd quid did not sit comfortably with me. You look gorgeous here :) x

    I love the color of your hair, it works really good with your skin tone. I'm a sucker for pretty pink stuff so that shirt to me is lovely.
