Ah, British Summertime! It’s nothing if not totally unpredictable. I guess that keeps us on our toes? We get to wear things that has previously been put to the back of the wardrobe ready for winter to come around again? I’m trying to put a positive spin on things here, I’m not really sure that it’s working.
I actually managed to grab these images when it wasn’t raining. Luckily, I was totally prepared for the rain in this ensemble, as there’s been a lot of it around lately. As per usual, nothing here is new – although my jacket is still available at Romwe. Having worn it a few times now I would definitely say it’s really great value for money. I adore the enormous faux fur lined hood, and the fabric is really good quality for the price.
These DMs that don’t look like DMs remain some of my favourite boots ever. They’re so comfy and they handle the rain really well. The slight heel and buckle detail means I’ve managed to dress them up occasionally, but they’re great utility boots as well. I think they go pretty well with this leopard print legging and leather mini skirt combo, no?
Talking of the leather mini skirt, I’m still proud of myself for making it. The design is incredibly simple, with patches made from a bargain XL coat I picked up on eBay. It still amuses me that I made it for a fancy dress party, but it’s now something I’ll quite often wear as part of a day to day outfit. I know I’ve said it many times before, but I really want to get back to sewing my own clothes. The satisfaction of wearing something you’ve made yourself is great, and it means you know that at least part of your outfit is totally unique!
I’m signing this post off in the hope that some more summer is on its way, as I’m totally not ready to get allll of the winter clothes out from the back of the wardrobe just yet. Bring me more sunshine please!
