Love double denim

I am loving double denim looks at the moment. For me, being the shortest person on earth, I find that it can be quite a heavy look. So, I teamed my beloved Levi 501s, that were given to me (free!!!) with this lovely Whistles chambray shirt.

I think that the lighter weight of the chambray makes it a lot easier to style and doesn’t make it too overpowering.

I topped off my outfit with my trusty TopShop hat, which I can’t get enough of at the moment. It literally goes with EVERYTHING. And finished the look with my favourite Rimmel lipstick which I posted about a little while ago.

In the summertime when the weather is fine

The sun has finally got his hat on…hip hip hip hooray. Sorry couldn’t help myself. I am feeling so jolly now the sun is out, it generally just makes things so much better doesn’t it?!
I was shocked yesterday that I wasn’t for once getting caught in the rain without an umbrella (that has become a very regular occurrence) no, no this time I was caught without my trusty sunglasses.
Which you might think to be not that shocking, but they are usually a permanent fixture on my face, come rain, shine and sometimes complete darkness.
My favourite pair at the moment have to be my audrey cats eye ones from whistles, but I stumbled on these beauties in TopShop and had to snap them up.
I have been looking for some black circular retro style ones for suuuch a long time now.
It always seemed that every time I tried some I would look either like a bug that had not yet been discovered, or like I was wearing some weird swimming goggles. But I have to say, I loved these from the minute I saw them even if I do still look vaguely like a bug wearing swimming goggles?

Today I’m wearing

Today it is pretty chilly again…I think our great British summer has already been and gone. But, I’m clinging onto the hope it’s not over yet and we can still wear our summery pieces.

I have warmed up my summery midi skirt with a more wintry grey fedora style hat and textured grey tights. I also love the combination of navy and orange together, so have muted down the bright summer orange with a textured, navy leotard type top. (it has velvet bits on it, it’s lush) one of my prouder primark buys!
