Top 10 Trainers: Air Force 1

Next on my list of Top 10 Trainers are the low Nike Air Force 1s. In my opinion, white is the only colour worth getting. They are so crisp, and I would never dream of wearing mine out if it's raining. They retail for £66.99 and around the £40 mark if you are lucky enough to have size 5.5 and under. I think this is actually extremely reasonable for a classic and popular style of Nikes', when the Air Max can retail from anything between £94-£125. They aren't as comfortable as the Air Max, as I feel they are quite structured and hard with the thick sole; however, this means they are less likely to lose their shape or crease. They are the staple white trainer in my wardrobe and think they can be paired with any outfit - from a casual outfit of MOM jeans and a crop top, to a dressier outfit of my American Apparel tricot skater dress. I purchased mine from, and if you're a student you'll get an extra 10% off. 

Love Ruby.

Haulin' #3

Payday came while I was away in Greece, so the moment I got home I literally ran to my laptop to buy some of the bits on my Wantworthy list - sad I know. After putting all of my crop tops and denim shorts away till next summer, I found myself with little in my wardrobe that I actually liked. I've decided that I would rather invest in key interchangeable wardrobe pieces than lots of cheaper items that I will get less wear out of. I do tend to follow trends so I mixed up the haul with the Goth, Camo, Tartan/Checked and Sports-luxe trends. 

ASOS Sweater with Eye Motif - £36
Monki Millie Shirt - £18
Boston Tee by Project Social T - £25
Poorboy Camo Chain Tie Crop Shirt - £45
ASOS Aran Sweater in Berry - £36
Noisy May Dark Checked Shirt - £28
Topshop MAMBO Canvas Lace Up Boot - £35

My bank balance is crying after this, but I'm pretty set for A/W 13 now..

Love Ruby.
