Laid-back Parisian


what i'm wearing:
glamorous crop top with fluted sleeves
h&m high waisted trousers (similar here)
dune pointed leopard print shoes (similar here)
missguided premium khloe waterfall camel coat
ted baker 'arina' bowler bag with removable clutch
ASOS baker boy hat

for five minutes of shooting in the rain i am incredibly happy with these photos. i met up with hannah (who also blogs here) for a catch up and decided to pop into central newcastle for a spot of food and try and get outfit snaps. low and behold the rain and wind came, but as i was wearing a hat i powered though. i wish i had been able to brave it enough to take off my coat to show you the sleeves on this beaut top i bought on friday but it was ice cold so i couldn't bring myself to do it. i'm sure it'll make an appearance again as soon as it's warm enough! there's not much to say for this outfit as it was just thrown on for a casual sunday but i have to savour any opportunity i get for outfit posts now. hope you like them, and fingers crossed i have more for you soon.

p.s had to add a cheeky snap of our pit-stop for food. we went to osaka on grey street and we both ordered the chilli chicken ramen. it tasted awesome!
