MODERN ZEBRA

13 May 2018


Happy Sunday you beautiful people! Shame the weather isn't like it was last weekend huh? Never mind, I guess us Brits are used to unpredictable (or mainly miserable) weather by now.
Whilst you're reading this, I'll be getting myself ready as I'm heading into London today to see Planet Earth II - Live in concert at the Royal Albert Hall this eve. I'm very excited to see what it brings but regardless I bloody love the Royal Albert. I guess any kind of event is a perfect excuse to head to the capital - I say that like I need an excuse...

Anywhoo, here's a blazer to well and truly feast your eyes on. I'm 99.99999% certain it's a bit of a marmite piece and if I could insert some sort of poll into this post I probably would but yes you are most definitely either going to love it or hate it. I guess it's a pretty lary combo with this pink top too, if I do say so myself. Also a huuuuge FYI - this top is now a tenner in the sale, an absolute steal. When I first purchased these two items (totally separately I may add) I had no intention of wearing them together until I tried them on. There's something about monochrome that works SO well with bold pop colours, don'tcha think? 
I paired it with these flares as I'm still desperately trying to avoid wearing skinny jeans with EVERYTHING. This year has seen my denim collection grow quite a bit, so I'm trying to rotate pieces as best as possible before I get too attached to one pair! These jamie jeans have been a stern fave though I must admit. I'm unsure if it'll stay that way or if they'll be shown the door but, only time will tell...
I hope you all have a lovely Sunday, whatever you may be doing.

DOUBLE POLKA DOTS

8 May 2018


Well well well, here we are again. By the time you're reading this the bank holiday weekend will be over but, what a bloody lovely weekend it's been. It's so nice taking that extra day off and even more so, when the weather is as it has been. I'm currently finishing writing this in bed despite starting it earlier - it appears it's MUCH easier to get distracted when the sun is shining. It's a lot easier to walk away from your laptop isn't it?

Last night we made dinner and ate on the balcony which isn't something we do often. Add a gin into the mix (and a cheeky dolce lounge desert) and that is what I call a bloody good evening. I genuinely don't tend to drink all that often but, there's something about an ice cold drink that sits so nicely with me at this time of year - of course i'm aware it's not just me but, just wanted to make it clear i'm not a raging alcoholic!

Anyhow... I thought i'd post this outfit as it seems the most fitting thing I've shot of late that goes even closely with the weather we're having at the moment. It's not very often you'll find me with my legs out but, when the weather allows, i'll definitely make the most of it. I've been whole heartedly attached to this leather dungaree number from The Kooples since the day I got it (and maybe even a little before it was mine, via their website etc). I'd pined over it for a while but the price tag was just that little bit too unjustifiable until I managed to snatch it up in an online outlet sale. Maybe leather isn't all that practical in this weather but it's too comfy to avoid, so i'll wear it regardless! 

But, alas, the bank holiday is over and we're back to work but I hope you had a lovely weekend. Here's to another bank holiday at the end of the month!
