Red Jumbo Cardigan.

When my sister brought this cardigan home for the first time, I knew it was an item I was going to get my share of wears out of and it didn’t take long for it to find itself amongst my possessions. If you can’t tell from the pictures, it’s cosy and chunky and thick and beautiful. Around the time these pictures were taken, although it was warm enough to go without a coat or jacket, it was still cold enough for you to freeze if you went out without mildly thick sleeves – don’t you just hate that kind of weather? – so I was in need of something long sleeved and warm to go over my dress.

Even though I’m not really a fan of wearing black with other colours, I made an exception with this outfit because I loved the cardigan so much.

Summer Morning Walks.

Is it the summer? I want to say yes on account of the nice weather we’ve been having, but then I want to say no on account of the weather we’ve been having… Anyway, yesterday morning instead of going to for a run (which I was so sure I’d do), I went on a leisurely stroll (in my pjs) with my sister around our neighbourhood and enjoyed the tranquil atmosphere.

It’s not a bad way to spend the day off, and certainly makes a difference to staying in the office all day huh?

Blue Jeans.

Saturday was really such a beautiful day. With highs of up to 19 degrees it was the perfect opportunity to crack open my new jeans and take them out for a whirl. It’s been a really long time since I’ve owned jeans that were so blue, but these are just phenomenal and I’m already thinking of buying another pair.

The only thing that would have really completed this look would have been the pair of Boca shades I was talking about on Friday. Don’t you think?

Wednesday Wish List: Luisa Black Tortoise Fade.

What started as a good day yesterday quickly descended into mayhem, full of tears and sadness. I lost my favourite pair of sunglasses :(. While I mourn the loss of Margeaux, my trusty companion, I have my eye on a new pair that are practically screaming at me through my laptop screen, begging me to buy them. Luisa is new to TOMS (you know how much I love TOMS) and comes in two colours: a black version and a blonde version.  I love how big the lens’ are, and the slight cat-eyed frame. Wouldn’t these make the perfect summer buddy?

My favourite of the two colours is the black version

 

I can’t wait to get these new sunglasses, but in the meantime I’ll be rocking my old shades.

Summer Neutrals.

Between writing three four-thousand word essays and going to work, it’s a wonder I have time to go out for a leisurely stroll and enjoy the beautiful weather we’ve been having here in London. Last week temperatures rose to 25° which called for slinky shorts and sheer fabrics to keep me cool.

I hope the weather stays this nice so I can dress like this every day.

Maggie.

Can you believe it has genuinely taken me a whole month to blog about this dress? I first wrote about the Maggie back in March when I was astounded at the price compared to a Current/Elliott dress I had my eye. The moment after I had written the post, I purchased the dress, a few days after that, it arrived in the post, but it wasn’t until this past Saturday that I actually wore it out for the first time.

To be honest, when I first tried the dress on I didn’t like it. It was too big, way too long and I just didn’t feel right it in. I went back and forth about a hundred times deciding whether or not to return it, and I’m so glad that I didn’t. While it may have been a bit on the big side trying it on, when I went out and about in it, it didn’t feel as big.

I really can’t wait for the summer so I can wear this pretty much every day.
