I am back on British turf and back to posting in real time! As most of you know, all of last week’s posts were pre scheduled as I was away in Berlin with work for the Bread & Butter Tradeshow. Even though it was a super tiring week and a lot of hard work went into it, it was nice to get out of the country for a little while and do something different. Although I spent the majority of time working on our stand, I did manage to steal a few minutes to take a look at what some of my favourite brands had on offer for the coming seasons, and I’ve taken tonnes of pictures for a blog post that will be coming soon this week.
Anyway, now that I’m back it seems like I’ve brought the sunshine with me! I wore this outfit this morning but ended up having to change pretty soon after taking these photos as I hadn’t realised just quite how hot it actually was. Black jeans weren’t the most intelligent choice in the heat, I admit. I think I was a little too excited to wear this outfit though, having planned it since I received the shoes and ordered the tee online at H&M. The shoes are by Duo, and are ridiculously comfortable. I really struggle to find shoes that don’t destroy my feet, but these are really easy to wear and the lack of straps and fuss makes them really flattering too.
Tee – H&M
Jeans – Joni at Topshop
Shoes – Duo
Lips – Infrared by Topshop
Toes – Sensual by Jessica
I’m also in love with the tee. Jewels on clothes isn’t usually my thing, but there was something about this one that caught my eye. It looks so much better in real life, as the sunlight has completely washed the colours out in these photos, but there are some really pretty shades of purple, blue and green which against the grey look so lovely. This is something I can see working in loads of different outfits, dressed down with some ripped denim shorts and sandals on holiday, or worn in the office with some skinny jeans and a blazer thrown over the top. Teamed with the jeans and shoes that I wore this morning makes a perfect daytime outfit to wear to lunch or shopping, and is the sort of thing I would wear on a regular basis.
What do you think of today’s look? How would you wear the tee and shoes?
