Outfit – Checkmate

IMG_4963Pinch, punch; it’s the first of the month. And Aprils fool :)

Check out my pink socks trying to make a guest appearance here. Haha! How are you guys doing? It’s Aprils fools day, got any prank ideas? I may play a joke on some of my students today. Whoever said teachers didn’t know how to have fun ey…

Hasn’t the weather been beautiful lately? Saturday was particularly lovely. Having spent the weekend chilling with friends I’ve pulled some photos out of the bank for you, although these shots were only taken last weekend. I picked up this shirt in February. It’s by Swedish brand Monki. I do love the contrast between the mini black and white squares, but the best thing about it is…

The leather collar! Cute right? IMG_4968

Hopefully the warm weather lasts so then both me and El can bring out our summer wardrobes for you. Wouldn’t that be nice?! :)IMG_4957

On a final note, both me and El want to give a special shout out to Mia who listed our blog as one to watch. Thanks Mia! You can read her review here

Second outfit post of the year, doing well aren’t I…?! How embarrassing!! I don’t really know how I’ve gotten to February with only two outfit posts under my belt. El has definitely been holding it down for #teamcoup since ’13 turned.

The whole world slows down in the first month of the year; surely I’m not alone in that boat…

Or perhaps I am! Anyways, starting as I now mean to go on, here’s todays outfit. What d’ya think?! The monochrome stripes are making me feel all Parisian, I should have put on a beret to add a little extra je ne sais quoi.

I couldn’t resist getting my Beyonce on with a little GIF animation for you! Haha, I bought this skirt from BooHoo about a month ago. They said it would look like it had been made of feathers. That’s not quite the case but it’s still okay for having a little shake in.
