checked trouserschecked trouserschecked trousers

these fat checked woollen troos were an asos STEAL last year for something crazy like £20 in the sale. couldn’t believe my large trouser loving eyes. and i stand like a super hero when wearing them i see.

because im crap at having a blog – these pictures are a bit old now and its sandal weather no more – but swap in a long sleeve shirt, skinny scarf and some lace up shoes or boots and you’ll picture my annie hall style winter feels.

trousers: ASOS / shirt: H&M / sandals: TOPSHOP

so many more of this style series with gill and collaborating photographer caro to share – better late than never right?

me + the long checked shirt

June 2, 2015

the shirt one day last summer, i was in a shop that i usually keep for socks & flat shoes, with my 7 year old niece, buying said socks etc when i saw that shirt up there.  oh my days. less than 20 bucks it was. i was having it.  the niece laughed out loud and looked at me like i was seriously SILLY. so i took her with me to try it on & almost managed to convince her it was a good idea. ish. she was smirking when she agreed – but she’s a bit cool like that the wee bugger so i ignored her. she was 7. pah.

this is me + the long checked shirt & the 2nd in our style series with the ever german, always lovely caro weiss photography*.
shirt dressshirt dressshirt dressthe shirt dressit’s from P R I M A R K. shut the front door.
belted with sandals (and big pants/shorts because it’s super chiffony see through) or worn like the open floating over-shirt that it likes to be – i am not even doing it justice up there with my awkward face & muddy boots. but you can see it for what it is right? it’s a billowy good shout is what it is.

french-style 5 piece minimal capsule wardrobe compatibility?  ummmm low to no. BUT… it’s light, goes with all denims & bare legs – converse, high heels, hats + jumpers.. so i’ll be darndet it stays.

please note my non-fashion-bloggerness & that most of the outfits we share on here are old favourites – not new hot of the press stuff.  i think that’s ok? no? bad blogger etiquette?  yikes if so – but i’ll keep sharing like a pal all the same.

suede style

like flares – I  L O V E  T H I S  T R E N D. it’s going to be a hard year shopping for me. hard as in – I”LL BUY EVERYTHING JOHN WILL DIVORCE ME AND I”LL HAVE NO MONEY BUT I DONT EVEN CARE BECAUSE ITS ALL SO BEAUTIFUL.

it’s not often whats in fashion/on trend/blah blah has any effect on me – but 2015 is the year of perfect style. yes to the 70s. yes to being a hippy. yes to a bit military & utility. to a bit boho. to textures – wool & suede & knits & velvet. yes and more yes’s to buttons & collars & knits & billowy bottoms & dungafuckingrees.
and suede!

z a r a  +  m a n g o  are both nailing it right now.  not just the suede – but the lookbook styling + photography.

soooo since it’s definitely spring now.. i definitely need T H O S E  S A N D A L S
& obvs nothing is ever complete without a good old fashioned B R O W N  B E L T (no jazzy bits for me on my belt thank you)
i like that girl in her woven knit top + S U E D E  S K I R T a lot.
remember i mentioned a purple velvet waistcoat? here’s another W A I S T C O A T i think i love.
gills going to super love that S H I R T D R E S S .
and i’m pretty sure i would look like alexa in that B U T T O N D O W N S K I R T
B A G . because i left my old suede one in a taxi last week.

let’s keep this 70s revival going forever – c x
