I still stay 'cause you're the only thing I know

I am currently swooning over the felt hat trend. There isn't any shape or size I don't like, however I personally think the bigger and the floppier, the better (Don't read that sentence in the wrong context, haha). As with any accessory, they add the perfect touch of elegance and completion to an outfit. Its versatility means you can wear it with a fanciful dress to the races or casually to run errands. Not only is the felt hat fashionable, but also entirely practical for such a pale skinned girl like myself. Without doubt, the felt hat is a must have fashion accessory for Spring and Summer.

'Cause I'm sleepless about you

Jacket: Zara | Shirt: Dotti | Skirt: Noughts and Crosses - via Dissh | Shoes: Zu Shoes | Bag: Colette
I am incredibly in love with monochrome at the moment. I've mentioned this time and time again but I feel I can not reiterate enough how classically elegant I find it. Don't get me wrong, I love colour but you can never beat a good old black and white combo. Instead of using colour to break up this outfit, I used texture by pairing black and white leather with quilted patterns.

Not sure what tomorrow brings

Sweater: Thrifted | Jeans: Dotti | Shoes: Betts
As someone who appreciates comfortable fashion, you'd have thought I'd get onto the loose fitting jeans phase much earlier. It's not that I wasn't a fan, I just didn't really think that I would be able to find a pair that would look flattering on my short little legs. On a whim, I decided to try on this pair and that is how the love was born. It has been a struggle to take them off since. I love the casual essence they bring to the table.
