TOPSHOP Jeans & Jacket // H&M Tee & Ring // LOUBOUTIN Pigalle Heels // DOROTHY PERKINS Clutch // NEW LOOK Sunglasses // RIVER ISLAND Watch
White Jeans and I have become very good friends. I remember a time when I absolutely hated how they looked on me, but it wasn’t until I found this pair, that I began to fall in love with them.
They’re a nice remix to my classic black ones, and perfect for those days when I want to do neutrals.
Today I paired them with a simple grey boyfriend tee, and one of my favourite jackets, this faux fur gem from Topshop. To pull everything together, I chose a pair of nude pumps.
A beauty tip I once heard is that you should carry around a pair of sunglasses, sunshine or rain, as it not only helps to protect your eye area from sun damage, but it also stops you from squinting so much in bright light and windy conditions!
Lots of squinting may mean premature wrinkles and crow’s feet, er…
I’ve had the best seats this past week for London Fashion Week… streaming from my bed! Haha!
I wasn’t too keen on all the madness (terrible winds, my weave, cobbles and heels) this time around, but I did feel like I was right there in the middle of it all, thanks to the internet!
What have you been up to?
