So i'm sure you are all fed up with seeing me in what seems like winter only outfits and even though the sun has been sticking around a little bit more lately it has still been pretty cold or at least when I took these photos it was. I don't know if any of you's do the same but when it's spring and the days are still so annoyingly cold and windy, every now and then I will just pretend it's the spring weather we all know and love, the kind of weather where you can wear a skirt with bare legs or some open-toe sandals and hey, maybe even a light jacket! But when I have those days, I quickly come to regret my optimistic approach and before I know it i'm back to wearing heavy coats, tights and sweaters.
Classic combinations seem to be my saviour right now and even though this look isn't screaming spring, I have tried to incorporate the season I am obsessing over right now in other ways such as wearing a lighter scarf rather then heavier one and a chambray shirt (thanks to the boyfriends wardrobe) as little things like that do make the difference, for me anyway. I came across this extremely old denim skirt of mine a little ago, from when I went through my "denim skirt only" phase when I was about 15/16 and thought i'd give it a spin once again, I felt it worked especially for giving the outfit a casual tone, what do you think? To put the finishing touches on this outfit I kept it classic with this oldy but a goodie tweed swing coat that I got from Jack Wills years ago and of course stuck with my trusty Grensons.
Hope you like the look and if you have managed to stick with me through my ramblings then BRAVO to you! Take care lovelies,
