I love wearing these navy trousers by Acne with my platform brogues, something about the way they have this baggy hang over the shoes. I also love wearing this very cosy waffle-knit rugby shirt that I bought from the M&S mens department a little while ago, perfect for pairing with smarter trousers like these or just your favourite denim on a cosy sunday.
So today I thought i'd brag a little about a couple of features i've had in the last week. Firstly, I was featured on Who What Wear which is pretty damn awesome and I was amongst some pretty stylish ladies including one of my favourite bloggers Sara Strand. And secondly a photo popped up of me on the Urban Spotter. A super inspiring street style blog, which is personally becoming one of my faves and I promise i'm not being bias. :D I actually had the pleasure of meeting Daniel (the photographer) when I was in Paris and he is such a cool guy to chat to.
So this past weekend felt like it lasted a week with all the things that have happened. Firstly there was the tragic helicopter accident that happened in Glasgow, where to many people lost there lives, which was truly heartbreaking. Then there was a young man in the town that I live that lost his life, though i'm not sure on the details yet but the town is small and things don't happen like this very often, so its always very hard hitting when it does. And to conclude, the world lost actor Paul Walker along with driver Roger Rodas. It's always hard when young lives are taken and so unexpectedly because it's not just one or two lives that are effected, it's everyone else that is left behind, the family and friends that are faced with the grieving, that I can only imagine to be heart wrenching and it's with them I send my prayers.
For me blogging is usually place where I escape real life problems but today I felt I needed to at least give it a mention. I love my family, they are my world and every day i'm grateful for being blessed with such a caring mother, a supportive sister, a beautiful nephew and my loving boyfriend. And it's at times like this that we should maybe show a little extra gratitude to who we have in our lives.
Thank you if you have taken the time to read this and I hope you enjoy my outfit photos,
In terms of my face, i'm relativity happy with how these photos turned out! I had terrible allergies on the day that these photos were taken, I was sneezing non stop, hence the non-fuss outfit. But hey sometimes this is all this girl wants and needs in an outfit. This will likely be my basic, inside all day uniform for this winter. Yay to comforts!
If there an outfit/uniform that you will be reverting to a lot this winter?
Back on a very windy sunday and a potentially a rainy one, I decided wearing my wardrobe basics was the only way to go. This cable-knit sweater, these levi jeans, my beige scarf, and this old but still awesome Topshop bag have been in heavy rotation in the last month or so, all pieces are very easy to combine, so why not wear them all together?! With my military green trench coat that I wore a lot back in the spring and my my old Wangs, which I have to admit i've been wearing a lot again recently, I was ready to head on out. The only problem with the trench is that it's quite light and was catching the wind a lot whilst we were shooting these photos, as was my hair, my freaking hair! It's very fine and so even when it's tied up in a bun, it still manages to find a way to escape and float around like pieces of cheese string, I know reeal nice!
Well, take care lovelies and thank you for reading,
