Outfit – Taken from his closet

IMG_3758_edited-1We all like a day off every so often, even a workaholic like me. On those days you’ll find me wearing a whole lot of menswear. It’s probably the secret tomboy in me. Don’t believe me? I should pull out some old photos. Actually, on second thoughts, I probably shouldn’t…!!

Ooh and can I add, how comfy these Hi Dunks are?! They are totally dreamy, and perfect for this mucky weather us Brits are facing at the mo. I definitely recommend them to anyone who is either intrigued or sitting on the fence!

 

I’ll be back in glad rags soon. Promise!

Outfit – Farewell summer

It seems as though the summer has well and truely desserted us! However, I have a few rays left in me. This will be the last of my ‘summertime fine’ collection as its now time for my ‘winter time cold’ swag.

I’m taking these denim shorts out for one more outing before September comes! Its so good to get your pins out in the sun, if only this mini tan would last a little longer!

I like wearing formal shirts when baring legs, that way I feel less beach babe and more city chic.

I am wearing (all old items): Oasis white shirt; Calzedonia denim shorts; Zara mini messenger leopard bag; Zara leopard kitten heels; H&M gold feather earrings and a gold cuff.

Outfit – White Gold

IMG_0174 The gold rush is back and I’ve found my treasure! It’s been a while since I last donned some neck pieces but the urge is back and the word id GOLD.IMG_0180

As I’ve said before, every well dressed man should always wear a watch, but that watch needn’t put a dent your pocket. I opted to go with a classic piece for this outfit and wore a Casio watch. Cheap and cheerful, ever so reliable and always fashionable.

I’ve got an addiction for crisp, clean looks and I’m a fiend for a plain white shirt. Modeling this textured cotton slim fit shirt from Zara has left me feeling so fresh and so clean. Blurred Lines seems to be the summer anthem but thankfully I can’t relate because I have on my 3D spectacles making my views spec-tacular. I simply removed the lenses and Bobs your uncle……. you know the rest. 2 Chainz isn’t the only person with 2 chains (although there’s hardly a comparison in size and in price) as I too have one neck and 2 chains. Bought from ebay, they’re the best buy, accessory wise, for me this summer.
IMG_0189 This is a Zara inspired outfit as I’m decked out from head to toe in their merchandise (they should really start paying me!). Playing it safe, I’m wearing black circular trousers.
IMG_0208 IMG_0217 IMG_0232 IMG_0237These are the latest addition to my shoe collection. Black Monk strap shoes from Zara. Unfortunately no monk-like behavior resulted from wearing these, although, the only meditation I wanted to practice, was being at one with some laminate flooring, shuffling from side to side underneath a disco ball.

Ctrl, over and OUT!

Shirt Inspiration

Sunny mornings and chilly autumn evenings, we’re going to have quite a few of those over the next month or so. Confused what to wear? I suggest you opt for a shirt dress. Not too heavy, but warm enough to take you into the evening. Pairing your shirt dress with some stiletto heels and a cute clutch bag will keep your look feminine and ultra sexy. And if your shirt dress is loose fitting, never fear, simply add a waist belt to accentuate all your good bits! Here’s some inspiration!

Tickle Me Pink
A couple of years ago everyone, including myself, was sporting a pair of feather earrings. As of late I haven’t seen too many people wearing them, but once again they are all over the shops. What I like about feather earrings is that they are quite quirky yet casual, so they can be worn to spruce up most daywear outfits. They also look uber cute on the beach. Next time you hit the high street, pick up a pair to help compliment your summer wardrobe. They are everywhere!
