WEAR THE RAINBOW

I OWN TOO MUCH BLACK - SAID NO ONE, EVER.

...but sometimes, just sometimes adding a little colour is a great thing.

My wardrobe is almost exclusively made up of neutrals but sometimes, just sometimes I get a craving for colour. I can have no idea what I want to wear I just know that it has to be colourful; whether it's a red dress on a night out full of LBD's or it's a multi coloured striped knit, with flared sleeves no less. I'm not sure whether it's the unusually sunny weather, my trip to an incredibly colourful Miami or simply a phase but for now pops of colour are definitely on my radar. Thanks, in large parts, to my love of this knit (it's had more wear than half the neutrals in my wardrobe) I've been on the hunt for more rainbow lovelies...

Side note: If anyone has an ideas for a quick way to earn £1,000 to buy this Balenciaga beauty let me know...

Do you wear a lot of colour or does your wardrobe firmly stay on the black, white and grey side?

THE DOUBLE JACKET

I knew his name long before he entered my life...

We had always wanted a dog but rented accommodation kept ruining our dreams, after deciding he would eventually be a french bulldog two years ago, the name instantly came to me whilst watching Sherlock Holmes, meet Watson. He is the most mischievous, stubborn, little light of my life. I can't even begin to explain the amount of joy he has brought and I am not a soppy person! Now if you know french bulldogs then you know that they HATE to be by themselves, I had heard this but still wasn't prepared for how far this would go. If I am cooking and not paying him attention, he howls, if he is left alone in the front room he howls, (unless it is after 6pm), if I am sat down but not where he can climb on my knee, he howls. Therefore Watson tends to accompany me everywhere I go and I love it. On this occasion we were headed for lunch, with Watson joining me I knew we would most likely be sat outside and although the sun was out... This Is England...it wasn't warm. Which is where the double jacket comes in, one of my new favourite looks. It instantly elevates an outfit and when worn with a leather biker jacket, instantly adds a little edge to the classic trench, plus it keeps you warm insert thumbs up emoji. In my old age, comfort and warmth is becoming ever more important. I'm not entirely sure when this shift in mindset happened, it seems only yesterday I was happy to go out in a tiny dress and heels in -10 degree weather turning a little blue around the edges, but alas those days are definitely behind me! I'd love to introduce you to all of Watson's idiosyncrasies, there are a lot, but I'll keep that to another post, one dedicated solely to him, one that he doesn't have to share with the double jacket. It's the least he deserves.

DENIM MINI - TWO WAYS




After adding and removing this denim mini skirt from my basket a number of times I purchased it just before my trip to Miami after some extensive holiday wardrobe inspiration trawling. In the end Lucy AKA Fashion Me Now convinced me that this would be a purchase I wouldn't regret thanks to it's impeccable ability to go from day to nightwear. 

Teaming casual basics that enable you to still resemble a together human being; something I struggle with day to day now that I work from home, leggings and trainers have become my go too uniform! The espadrilles were a steal for just £16 and incredibly comfy, I'm just on my back to purchase this green pair, ideal for when you're feeling the summer weather but haven't quite made that pedicure appointment yet. An all time favourite piece of mine, the H&M chunky knit makes this the perfect transitional outfit for when you see the sun and automatically think it's 25 degrees out...mental note, it's the UK it almost never 25 degrees outside!




Mules, mules, flared sleeves, mules, flared sleeves; the general gist of my thought pattern these days. I have more mules than days to wear them currently on my wish list and every other item I wear seems to have a flared sleeve...you'll see, the outfit shots are coming! There's something so retro about the two paired together and I blooming love it.

These particular mules were another Forever 21 star buy, just £20 and they come in a fabulous array of colours. 

Now can we all just take a moment to appreciate these sleeves...H&M you did it again.
