cardigan: Urban Outfitters, top: SuperTrash, bra top: ASOS, trousers: Ted Baker, scarf: French Connection, boots: Schuh, ear cuff: ASOS 

If I could, I’d live in leather trousers. They add coolness to any outfit, and I love pairing them with tees and more feminine textures like this Supertrash silk top. Real leather is also great in any season as it’s surprisingly cooling in hot temperatures and warming in winter, so although they’re pricey they are a good investment. I scored these amazing Ted Baker real leather and jersey trousers for £30 in an amazing Selfridges sale last year. Insane!

I Want it Wednesday – Nasty Gal Oversized Jumpers

Nasty Gal - Oversized Jumper

Nothing is more sexy than a girl in an oversized jumper, her hair thrown carelessly around her face and perhaps a hint of shoulder and cleavage showing. Nasty Gal is the bomb for this look. I love their styling, it’s the best for an online retailer I’ve seen, and I gotta try those gorgeous berry lips.

The Jumper

The jumperThe Jumper - Jewellery Details

jumper: French Connection, necklaces: Bulgari, Forever 21, Massimo Dutti

A few weeks ago I did a post about the perfect t-shirt. Well say hello to the jumper that goes with everything. This was a steal from French Connection during their summer sale – probably one of my favourite sales out of all the shops. I find it difficult to trawl through loads of jumbled clothing racks (er, sorry Topshop!), and so tend to do my sale shopping online, but FCUK sales are always well organised. This jumper was another one of those ‘got-to-have-it’ moments. The mix of silk, wool and cotton has given the fabric a really luxurious, soft-knit feel without being itchy or shapeless. The colour is great too – a deep, almost brownish charcoal-grey that looks great against bright jewellery like these necklaces. It’s such an amazing piece, I have to force myself not to wear it all the time!

Outfit: Calm Before the Storm

knit: borrowed from my mum, top: H&M, shorts: Mango, boots: Schuh, hand chain: ASOS

Well this day was very British! Umbrella-blown-inside-out moments galore, and for the most part I could barely see through my hair. Managed to get some quick pictures done before the rain came, and it was actually rather warm, hence the shorts. I’m trying to stretch out bare legs as far into September as possible but it’s already getting a bit difficult.
