Wow it’s been such a long time since I’ve written a post like this. I wore this outfit a few weeks ago when I met up with some friends and tried Five Guys for the first time – and let me tell you now it was the greatest food experience of my whole entire life and I wish I had taken pictures so that I could have shared them on here and gushed about how great Five Guys is… but alas, I guess I’ll have to keep that for another time…
Sweater: Jack Wills; Jeans: Topshop; Bag: Longchamp; Jacket: Dorothy Perkins. [Not pictured – Sunglasses: TOMS; Sneakers: Superga]
Anyway back to the outfit. My brother bought me this sweater a while back and I’ve been loving wearing it both in and outside of the house. If you know me well enough you’ll know how obsessed
much I LOVE LOVE LOVE all things Jack Wills and can’t step foot into a store without buying everything in sight. It’s really cute and comfy and goes just as well with my Nike shorts as it does with a pair of ripped jeans.
And once again I took this pictures on my way to meet my friend, to see what I looked like as I didn’t have enough time to check myself out in the mirror before I left the house.
Is it still summer? Why is the sun still shining like it’s mid-July but the cool breeze is making me feel like it’s mid-May? But the most important question of them all: what am I supposed to wear? For those not-quite-any-season kind of weather conditions, your safest bet are a pair of jeans and a plaid flannel shirt.
Since buying these jeans back in July, I’ve been hard-pressed to find an outfit they don’t look great with. If anything, as the months have passed they’ve paired better with even more of my clothes. I thought I’d probably go off them around August, but here I am at the end of September and I’m kicking myself for not investing in another (or two) pairs of these Topshop bad boys. Comfy; tick. Stylish; tick. Weather neutral; double tick – although your knees might get a little chilly in the winter 😛 . You really can’t go wrong.
Aren’t my matching pink nails so cute? Funny that when I first tried this colour I wasn’t such a big fan, but now I’m loving it!
So last week I went out to dinner with friends, and as I didn’t have enough time to check myself out in the mirror before I left, I figured I’d take a few snaps of my outfit en route – if you ask me, there’s no better time to multi-task ;). Not pictured are my Superga sneakers, but we’ve seen them so many times on here/Instagram it’s not really that much of a big deal. Next time I’ll try and get a proper full outfit picture.
These days I’m all about carrying a clutch in lieu of a shoulder bag. Not only do my shoulders FINALLY get a break from always having to lug a heavy sack everywhere, but it also adds that tiny bit of dressy-uppiness to the most dressed-down of outfits.
If you ask me, this month has been so long but so short. It feels as though so much has happened, but then at the same time it feel as though nothing has really gone on.
MY NEW PHONE
I got it last month but I haven’t been able to use it until a week ago. My whole experience, through frustrating as hell, reminded me that if you want something done, by god do you have to do it yourself!
My post on the finale episode of Being Mary Jane made it to the top of the TV and film category on The-NewsHub.com which I’m really happy about! Thank you if you read it, and if not, you can check it out here. I haven’t written for the site in a little while so I need to kick my butt into gear and start writing.
MY STARTER CAR
No I haven’t bought a car yet, BUT I have found the perfect starter car. Looks like I’d better get to saving.
I couldn’t ask for a better, more comfy pair of jeans. Right now I’m deciding on whether or not I should buy these again or if I should get the dark grey version.
I don’t know if it’s the way I applied it, or a change to their polish formula, but Barry M’s ‘Nightshade’ has not chipped AT ALL. I repeat – NOT AT ALL. I’ve been wearing it for close to two weeks now and it still look as good as new. I didn’t expect to love this colour so much, but now I can’t get enough of it.
I can’t wait to see what June will offer. Happy Thursday.
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?
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.
Is this look everything or what?
I’ve been staring at these pics for an incredibly long time and I am OBSESSED.
