FASHION | The Classics



Coat - Zara | Breton - Olive Clothing | Trousers - Zara | Shoes - Topshop | Bag - Mulberry

And 'ere's me face! Necklace is from Ebay and the lips are by Revlon (which is running out, sobsob!) Awkward face is all my own.

In a minute I'm going to a fireworks party with my aunt (so wild! But I'd rather spend time with my family over most people I know.) Do you know how hard I resisted the temptation to name this post 'Baby You're A Firework'? I wonder how many posts I'll see with that title this week, but I'm not complaining because I do love a blogger cliché

Talking of blogger clichés here's a very typical leather/stripes combo but you can't beat the classics. I'm also wearing this necklace for the first time, it was an Ebay bargain but I forgot about it! I usually like my jewellery teeny tiny but something a bit more 'look at me!' is good when you need to smarten up a bit. I'm basically wearing this to the party, I just swapped the trousers for my leather skirt. Are you ready for my mad layering skillz? I have three tops under my breton and leggings under my tights. Doesn't beat last years record though, I managed to get tights, leggings AND a pair of Primark fleecy jammie trews under a pair of leather trousers. Impressive right?

And I know my poor Bayswater has taken a bit of a backseat recently since the Del Rey come on the scene but I'm determined to take it out a bit more often. I love how it matches the sole of these shoes which adds just a little more interest to all black outfits...it's teeny details like this that I love!

  4. You inspire me ! I love this outfit because it's a more daring take on a classic, so it's probably as far as I'm likely to push myself outside of my comfort zone.
    L.o.v.e your lips and hair too - really adding some fire and warmth to this whole outfit!
    Enjoy your night - I'm smugly watching everyone's back garden fireworks displays from my behind my balcony window wearing my flannel pj's. mwahahaha!

  23. May or may not have almost written a post with that title...Love the Bayswater, currently convincing myself I don't need one and the trouser too but how the hell d you fit all that under there, I struggle to fit my own legs and bum into leather trousers (muscle, it's all muscle...) nevermind other items!
