Yep I still love these wide leg checked trousers that I bought from Asos last winter but can you blame me?! These photos were taken a while ago now, there were other ones that I was more excited about sharing but finally their time has come.
I always knew that i'd style this shoulder warmer belted around my waist, though I thought it would be with a pair of jeans but instead I went with styling it over these checked beauties. I kept everything else fairly classic and simple as well as keeping to a monochrome pallet with just a white tee, my leather jacket and my Converse, .
Sometimes when I buy a piece of clothing I have such a solid of idea of how I want to style and wear it, do you ever have that? Well, that's exactly how I felt with this shirt. From the minute I received this shirt I was set on wearing it with these jeans and shoes but the endless cold weather we were having here, had prevented me from wearing this combo for what felt like ages. But then finally we were graced with what feels like summer or just a fairly long heatwave and so my wish to wear this outfit came true, good times! It was comfy, casual and yet had just enough bang, thanks to the pops of metallic.
Here is something I wore on a grey and chilly sunday a few weeks ago. I know crazy that i'm posting a look in May where I am actually still wearing a coat, though the pictures were taken back in April and i'm only draping the coat over my shoulders. I love these checked trousers of mine so much, I still can't get over that they were only £40 from Asos.
I realised I hadn't yet done a look with these trousers, where the styling was simple and somewhat classic. A white shirt and a brown belt were of course a given in this circumstance, a combination i'll never get tired of. I wore this old swing coat of mine because like I said it was chilly and I liked how the tweed subtly clashed with the check print of the trousers. To add some colour and to, well, brighten up my grey day I wore my pink Miu Miu shoes, Ah how I love them so!
Well Y'all I best be off. Hope you like the look and take care,
Here is what I wore on my first day at Paris fashion week. A look I really loved wearing, a great thing about it was that it was comfy to wear, which as you know or can imagine is a bonus at Fashion week and even though I had on a lot of layers, to the point I can't remember how many vests I was actually wearing, I was still freezing and to be honest I don't think there are any clothes out there that are made for the weather we had to endure in Paris! It was Freeeezing!
So we didn't have time do a whole lot that day but we did go to the Balmain show to shoot some street style and Wow, that was an experience I won't forget! I was pretty much a nervous wreck after leaving there, crazy doesn't even begin to cover it, I mean there were literally fights breaking out. On the other hand it was awesome to see all the super stylish folk in all their finest.
Right onto the outfit, I really wanted to create a look that had a vintage opulent vibe about it but I wanted to do it in a way that's relevant to my own sense of style. I don't know if it's considered a faux-pa to wear the same items to multiple fashion weeks but here I am wearing these Asos checked trousers again, oh and also the Birkenstocks and socks combo made another appearance. Though this time I styled both trousers and shoes with these two strongly printed kimonos of mine, it's a shame you can't see more of the other kimono, annoyingly the scarf seemed to cover most of it up. I also wore this amazing green coat, that i've been hiding from you, I just adore the way it hangs and those giant furry cuffs are just way cool. I finished of with a black wide brim hat and my Chanel bag, for those classic touches that I love so much.
Well I hope you like this look. Thanks sweetie and take care,
So I thought it was about time I started showing you my LFW looks. Here is what I wore on my first day in London, it was a last minute decision to wear this outfit, which made me a bit anxious but I liked the result and especially so as I finally got to wear these Asos checked trousers, which I have had for ages now.
I styled them with my Eskander checked shirt for print on print styling, something that I always enjoy doing but decided to keep that touch very subtle by wearing my navy knit from Cos over the top, as it complimented the colours of my shirt and trousers perfectly. I chose to wear my very old white pointy shoes, as ya know we are all loving a bit of the white shoe at the moment! Even though I loveeeee heels, I don't actually have very good balance when it comes to walking in them (apart from heeled boots) I feel like I must look look a little girl trying her mums heels on for the first time! Plus I feel I can enjoy myself a lot more when I am wearing a shoe thats comfier and easier to trot around in, so for the rest of the time spent in London (apart from one evening event) I wore flats but that's not say they can't look just as chic.
As I clearly do not have the luxury of having a private car to take me from place to place and with knowing that I would be outside a lot trying to capture some street style, I had to be wise and keep myself nice and warm, so I chose to wear my Cheap Monday grey coat with my Oska cape layered over the top. I really love the strong splash of colour it bought to the outfit, really lifting the darker tones. I finished of with what appeared to be a LFW must have, The Beanie! Also my Ray Bans, Alexander Mqueen ring and Prada bag. :)
Well thats all for now, looks from day 2 and 3 from my LFW trip will soon follow! Thank you lovelies and take care,
p.s Thank you to the amazing Sandra from the 5 Inch and Up blog for taking this beautiful picture (the last one) I love it!
