In Between Moods
Have you ever had one of those days where you can’t decide if you want to dress up or dress down?
I love to dress up but sometimes all the “dolling-up” can become exhausting especially if you’re going to bed at 1am almost every night. One of my favorite in-between-moods outfit are with these black high waist trousers. Semi-dressy if I want it to be, yet it can be paired with a tee, tank or crop denim jacket for a casual playful look.

When we booked our girls’ trip to Vegas, I was super excited to spend some quality time with my girls, and of course I was also excited to finally check out one of my favorite online store TopShop at the Fashion Show Mall.
When I first walked in, I was like a kid in a candy store, overwhelmed…So many things to try on and so little time. I quickly scanned the entire store in less 15 minutes, twice! To my surprise I didn’t try on the whole store, but only a few and left with just a couple items. To be honest, I was a little disappointed. Not to be Sour Sally but some of the dresses and tops were made with typical designs and ran twice the price as similar quality items in other stores. I didn’t really drool over anything like I anticipated and the only thing I was kind of in awe over a sheer lace bustier dress, too bad it was $800. I did found a cute little denim vest with some sparkles and a crop tank that I kind of forced myself to buy because I didn’t want to leave empty handed….
To be fair, maybe my expectations were too high and my excitement too over the top. TopShop in Las Vegas is still a cute store with cute little items (they also have a petite section), and I’ll still go back whenever I’m in town!
Ladies, what are your thoughts with TopShop?
[…] it’s good to stripped back to basics with a monochrome palette of black and white. After my H&M trousers started sagging in the rear (wore them only twice), I have been looking for a nice form fitting […]
That is Very Cute Vest, Im Looking To Get One For Myself But I Never Shop At Topshop, So Im Sure If The Vest Is Supposed To Be Tight Or Loose, Is It Supposed To Be A Tight Fit Or Loose One?
My vest is an XS. It fits well, not too tight and restrictive but not loose either.
Love this combination…chic, casual and a little bit of edge ;)
I loveeee this look! <3
wow I loooooove this look!..the black and white,paired with those shoes are fab!!
love the jacket and STUNNING jewellery!!
wow girl,you kick ass!
wow I haven’t been in topshop for years,eversince I lived in london I think!
love to be able to check it out again!!
xx have a great weekend doll xoxo
Awwwww loves it! So chic!
Wow someone’s looking so fierce & chic in that perfectly put together outfit KT!!! I’d say Top Shop is a great store but still a hit or miss on some days!!!
I really like this outfit on you :)
Topshop can be a bit hit and miss. I live in London and the Topshop on Oxford street is 4 levels so the range is a lot larger with a unique designer’s collection which I think you’d like as well as emerging designers section (downstairs). I do like their supersoft skinny jeans and I find their brogues and shoes quite good value for money :) but otherwise agree that sometimes there’s nothing too special. Maybe you’ll just have to come visit the one in London just to be sure :P

Great pants girl! I’d love to find a similar pair. You obv know I’m loving the denim and this looks great the way you paired it all! I love myself some Topshop and always hit it up when I’m in NYC or London BUT I do think it can be a bit overpriced. Hope you had a great time otherwise!
Thanks for the love of my blog beautiful! Love this look, the jean jacket gives it the perfect edge.
following you now via bloglovin’, would love for you to follow back! xx
Can’t wait to see more of your posts! xx
Another great look! I love how you can change it up from girly to rockstar to casual chic that’s still glam. I absolutely adore your shoes! But of course, they’re CLs! :)
I’m sorry about your disappointment with the store. I felt the same way when I went to the H&M in Dallas. I seriously thought I was going to find something awesome since I always covet everybody’s items on their blogs, but it didn’t really excite me. Granted, the prices at H&M are way cheaper than Topshop, but I think I might feel the same way as you the minute I step into the one in Chicago when we finally visit in a few months. Well, take care!
I feel the same about Topshop. It’s definitely overpriced for what it is and considering Forever 21 is right around the corner at Fashion Show Mall, you can’t really justify the higher cost! At least you ended up with the cute vest and cropped top :)
Love this outfit and those Loubies are delicious!!
I completely sympathise with your TopShop disappointment. I was so excited when they opened a small store in Vancouver, but overall, in the six months since it opened, I haven`t been wowed by anything I`ve found there – mainly, I expect, because the price to quality parity just isn`t what I would expect. I do have a denim shirt that I love from them; their denim is great. But otherwise, I tend to stick to Zara… The prices are similar, and the quality is higher.
I have to agree with the girls who commented before me. You look perfect wearing these items. I really can’t say which is my favorite, they all look like they should be in my wardrobe. :D
This is such a fantastic look! I’m also a big fan of “in between” looks as well, when I’m undecided if I want to go full out dressy or casual; this is the perfect medium! I think high-waisted black trousers are a must-have staple for any girl’s closet, because it’s one of those classic pieces that are instantly chic once worn, and that denim vest is nothing short of perfection!
And as for Topshop things, you already know my stance on it. ;) But damn, $800 for a dress?! Sheesh!
Can’t wait to see your Vegas photos! I’m glad that you had a great time and it’s got me thinking that I need to go back again! :D
Look at that arm party and those leopard shoes with red soles. I love your in between moods, the casual moods and the fancy moods! :) I have purchased a few things from Topshop but only online. I think they have a cute inventory it’s kinda overpriced mostly and I’m sorry you didn’t buy as many things as you wanted but it’s ok. Look at it this way, you saved! :)
