Another What to wear on a rainy day outfit. These boots + leather trousers are definitely up there in one of my go-to combos for bad weather days. Stripes are a certain fail-safe to and whilst the pea coat isn't super rain proof, it does just fine and looks good against stripes. To spice things up a little I added in this old tweed skirt of mine, I like how up top it blends in well with the other classic styles but below it creates a textured contrast against the edgier leather.
When I had my first look at these pictures, I just wasn't sure, to the point I didn't know whether I wanted to upload them. More often then not, the more I love an outfit in person, the more the outfit doesn't reach my expectations in photos, it's so annoying and thats how I felt about this outfit. Do you ever have the same feeling when taking your outfit photos?
Anyway a few hours after looking at them, I wondered what they would look like if they were changed to being black & white shots and ah how I love the easiness of modern technology because when I finally got around to editing them, my opinion on these outfit shots had completely changed. I love them, to me they are just so much for visually striking this way and have now become some of my favourites photos to date!
Well, thanks for reading. Take care,

Here is an outfit that I wore around Easter time, we were experiencing some pretty cold weather and I was just about ready to give up and trow on the comfiest and cosiest clothes I own! But then something crazy happened, the sun decided to grace us with it's presence, which in turn gave me the incentive to put something nice on and venture out to enjoy the sun, because you never know how long that will last here in the UK.
I decided the only way to go in terms of dressing was to do what I think all us ladies do when inspiration is low, which is go back to basics! Classics such as a camel coat, a white blouse and some skinny jeans creates the perfect base before adding in some personal touches, which were for me - this lime green scarf, some burgundy socks (jeans rolled up, so the socks are on show) and these navy boots, which always find themselves included in my transeasonal looks. What I love about a combination such as this, is that it's been interpreted so many times by so many different woman and in my opinion that doesn't make it common, it proves that it stands the test of time in all it's classic and chic glory, so hooray for the camel coat, the skinny jeans and the perfect white blouse!
Even though I put this post together a few days ago I had to add in the great sadness I feel for what has happened and is still happening in Boston right now. When will it stop?! My prayers and thoughts go out to everyone that has been effected by this.
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.
Here is something I wore a few weeks back. It was a very cold and wet day which many of you would probably agree leaves you ( I ) completely uninspired! In the end I decided to stick with some winter basics of mine.
I started off with what feels like my uniform of the winter season - my leather trousers and pointy KG Kurt Geiger boots! This combination has definitely proven to be fail-safe, which makes it a perfect solution on days such as this. I wore my thick cream cable-knit sweater with a white shirt underneath, just to add some preppy-chic detailing to the outfit and I also decided to wear this leather skirt of mine as I felt it put just enough of a twist on the look to satisfy my stylistic needs. Luckily we found a spot that was undercover where we could take some photos, which allowed me to take my coat off and add in my Illesteva sunnies.
I hope you like this look my lovelies. Thank you and take care,
