another take on tartan

01/11/2013


what i'm wearing:
zalando leather ankle boots*

i know you're probably thinking *yawn* seeing another tartan outfit post, but for me i find it an achievement i've been able to create an outfit from two pieces that have been sitting in my wardrobe collecting dust for months. when i'm bored and by myself on my lunches i enjoy doodling outfits that come to my mind, and this was one of them that sprung to mind. it's perfect for days when i desire a lazy outfit without reaching for leggings and a loose t-shirt. the shirt although has a casual look it is a silk fabric and i adore it. unfortunately as it is between lengths so it is neither a crop or long enough to be worn with jean

tonight i'm heading out after work for food and a drink with my sister. where we are going they do a cookie monster cocktail which is made to look like the cookie monster so i may be sampling this out. i'm excited, even more so as i've finally collected my £29.99 zara coat (yes you heard that correctly) which no doubt will be on the blog soon. it's a lovely navy blue i just need a breton t-shirt to go with it now. parisian fashion is always so lovely.

  1. I personally love seeing tartan inspired posts - can't get enough! Lovely look, wishing I was tall enough to wear jumpsuits now
