Just a little post for you this saturday. I wanted to show you these trousers by ACNE! I know they aren't the best photos in the world but it gives you better idea of how they look then say if I had them hanging of a hanger. Anyway obviously I love them down to the fact that they cover most things that I love, like - androgyny, tailoring, minimalism and I do think they could be a wardrobe classic. The only thing is, they do come up quite long on me (probably due to my 5'3-5'4 hight) but in saying that I like the slouch that creates, very Stella McCartney Spring13 ;). I also can't make up my mind if I want to unstitch the pockets incase it messes up the way they hang but pockets man!!! I love pockets!!
Anyhoo I hope you like them as much as I do and I promise i'll do a proper outfit post with them soon :)
I wanted to show you this look thats finally made it to the blog, I took it a little while ago now but better late then never! Sorry if the photos are little poor it was one of those evenings where we were definitely chasing the light.
I was in the mood for something simple and wanted to take the opportunity to wear this Acne padded sweater of mine without a coat, finally! I wore it it with my J Brand Cargo trousers and my white shoes for a minimal and subtle approach to colour blocking and then added in the boyfriends leather belt just for that extra touch, normally a statement necklace would be my usual choice but the belt seemed a little more refreshing plus I felt it complied better with those minimal tones. My Illesteva sunnies, a red lip and just a silver watch were my weapons of choice to complete the look, typical, Suree but it works.
Well I'm off now. Thank you lovelies and take care,
Hope everyone is doing well. This is something I wore a little while ago when I had myself a little cinema date with the boyfriend.
My outfit obviously had to be pretty comfy and with already being in a fairly simplistic mood, it didn't take me to long to realise that this Acne sweater and I should be the best of friends for the day! I wore it with these white trousers that I've had for ages now but haven't worn before as theres something about the way they fit that i'm really not keen on but I'll hand it to them as they did seem to do the job for this look, so there might just be some hope for them yet! My leather jacket, a thick-knit scarf and my pointy boots were some easy go-to pieces that completed the look, as well as some modern yet minimal accessories such as my Cooee bracelet and Illesteva Sunnies.
Hoping you like this look my lovelies. Thank you and have an awesome day,
p.s Thank you for all your well wishes for my nephew, your supports mean a lot. He is now home from hospital but still quite poorly.
These outfit pictures were taken a couple of weeks ago when the weather was very wet and very cold. Normally I would opt to stay inside on a day like this but I was meeting a friend for coffee and as I hadn't seen her for ages, there was definitely no way I was missing it. So I scrapped all my previous outfit ideas and went with some of my best wardrobe basics/favourites that are a godsend for times such as these.
I love J Brand jeans, they always make me feel good and wearing these flared cropped pair, always seem to feel slightly chicer then my normal go-to skinny jeans. I then wore a classic striped top with a leather jacket, I tell ya, you can't beat wardrobe staples like this on days as uninspiring as these and also just by adding a knitted cape over the top of a pretty basic look such as this, can be what sets it apart from the rest, against the leather jacket it instantly highlights the contrasting textures which in turn, creates depth within the look. The cape also creates a certain amount of length play and enhances the layered effect. To give the outfit some lift I bought out my vibrant red scarf, if you don't have one a red lip will also do the job, as you can see I just went ahead and did both :D Finishing off with a classic fedora hat, Chanel bag and my Acne Pistols. There you have it, another rainy day look.
Sorry if the quality of the photos aren't great but I hope you like the look and I look forward to your comments. Thank lovelies and take care,
p.s I just wanted to say thank you for sticking with me even though we had some problems with the blog over the weekend. Also I just wanted to be honest with you all and let you know my little nephew has sadly been in the hospital since sunday so I am spending a lot of time with him right now and even though i'm taking the little time I do have to make sure I comment on all your wonderful blogposts, there might be times when i'm not able to but I will be looking at them all at the very least :)
