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.

*the reason i am not spending all my monies just yet? the big kitchen life. we almost have it . . .
(once said life is ours – I AM SPENDING ALL MY MONIES ON CLOTHES + HOMEWARES! my asos basket is pretty full right now… + UO.. + topshop … + made.com … wah)
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*. it’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.

gill bought the suede coat. and we looked at it and sighed a lot. gill also just got married. and she’s a total BABE. so to celebrate – both the marriage & the jacket – i’m sharing the first in our little style series in cahoots with our small german picture-taking friend, caro weiss.
i was introduced to this east london based online fashion brand by none other than cool shoe wearing caro the german picture-taker. and as soon as i looked at the website – i started a basket….
t h e w h i t e p e p p e r
bold prints, bright colours, easy wearing dresses, cute shirts, LOTS of collars & buttons & child like patterns – the whitepepper specialise in quirky + unique street style + vintage inspired pieces.
i love the look book styling / colourful + super super cute …
i recently bought t h i s d r e s s (it was clicked and confirmed before i could even start justifying it) and it is one of the most wearable cute + comfortable things in my so-far-not-very-successful capsule wardrobe.
these are my top picks / / things in my basket right now :
you’ll find the brand stocked online in urban outfitters, topshop & asos as well as over at www.thewhitepepper.com
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.
z a r a + m a n g o are both nailing it right now. not just the suede – but the lookbook styling + photography.
