Outfit – Too Cool for School

IMG_0861The other day, for an afternoon amble with El in Hampstead, I swapped my staple look of a skirt and pumps for a pair of worn converse and tattered, although new pair of skinnies. Wearing a knit that was two sizes up helped add to that extra slouchy look. Dress down days – gotta love ’em. They get two thumbs up from me.IMG_0856

We took a stroll, did a little bit of shopping and then had a sensible afternoon coffee. In one of the shops (Whistles I think), I saw this gorgeous necklace with an inscription that caught my eye…

How quaint; how cute.

Although I can’t exactly say the same for my chucks… oops! Err, I think I need to invest in a new pair sometime soon.

Knit – H&M; Ripped Skinny Jeans – Zara; All Stars – Converse; Shoulder Bag – H&M

Outfit – Operation Camouflage

IMG_7689Growing up, every boy wanted to be in the army, wear the uniform, holster a gun and destruct all before him in a tank. Thankfully for me, ageing and wisdom camouflaged that dream as I’m too pretty to fight and too young to die.

img_7675Not wanting to look like an attendee at a fancy dress shin dig or the latest recruit on the front line, I’ve opted for some contrast with this leather panel sweatshirt from Zara.

Dressed in a pair of camouflaged jeans courtesy of Zara, is as close as I’m willing to get to that dream.

This look wouldn’t be complete without a pair of Converse. I’m wearing black All star hi leather thinsulate boots.

Outfit – Absolutely Stud’ding!

There comes a time in our lives when even the wonderful world of fashion just doesn’t have that special piece of clothing! You know, that special piece you randomly thought of as you were ‘Coup’d up on your sofa reading the latest issue of Vogue, and SUDDENLY, it popped up! The bulb of inspiration!!!!!

Inspired by studs, I chose to start small and experiment on a plain white stretch t-shirt from GAP. I simply thought of a pattern and free-handedly carried it out, accessorizing it with gold pyramid studs I bought on eBay. What do you think?

Perfect for the summer season, I’m wearing a pair of mustard colored jeans from Zara. A pair I once was apprehensive to wear but finally I’ve got my taste buds to agree.

Now, I used to be a devout hater of Converse, but before I became reformed after having a conversation with Chuck. These days, my feet and footwear ‘converse’ like two women with the latest gossip hot off the press! So, finishing off the look, I’m wearing ‘All star hi Ecru canvas’ (my favorite pair).

As a ‘stud’ muffin, should you decide to tackle the world with a watch-less wrist, don’t be afraid to accessorize. I’m wearing a tiger eye bracelet which still looks masculine enough, your wrists won’t feel left out.

To the Coups and Coupets, you’ve been absolutely stud’ding!
