Firstly I want to say a massive thank you for the wonderful comments I received on yesterdays post about bringing awareness to M.E. I am still working on replying to everyone individually and also to the emails I received. I really am overwhelmed by everyone who not only took the time to read the post but also to those who took the time to reply with such positivity, understanding and encouragement.
This is something I wore few weeks back when the sun was shining and the flowers were looking pretty, a great day for taking some photos, the only catch was it was a bit chilly but that didn't bother me because I like myself a bit of, what I call "in-between" weather.
For this look I decided to combine two of my favourite styles, classic and androgyny. I chose some wardrobe staples of mine, like this classic navy v-neck sweater and talking of which, this one is from Jack Wills that I bought back when I was about seventeen and oh how I wish Jack Wills would bring it back as I can tell you all that after wearing it excessively for years now, it still continues to hold the same shape, colour and feel as it did when I first bought it! SO lovelies if you come across the perfect navy sweater, just buy it regardless because they are rare and you totally won't regret it. I borrowed the Boyfriends Chinos, oh and his watch, hehe I know i'm badass! Added in a vintage leather belt and my good old tweed blazer (also from Jack Wills) I turned up the sleeves a little for some extra detail, whilst also creating some subtle print play with the striped print on my ankle socks. Instead of my Grensons I chose to go with my Jil Sander metallic brogues, just to prevent the look from becoming to proper. A pink lip and standing under a pretty blossom tree was, for me, a great way to bring some femininity to the look.
Well I look forward to reading your comments. Thank you for reading and take care,
