Ok, it’s probably here, only saying this because I wore this getup on the photo below and I was hot! Finally. I think now I can retire my chunky jumpers and faux-shearling coats for a while, till next winter anyway.
So yes, this is what i wore, very simple, very comfortable and hot as I mentioned before. Jumper is from Zara, jacket from Mango, Re/Done jeans, Nike Air max sneakers and my Puzzle bag.
Call me crazy but I’m very drawn by the rainbow trend and actually I found some reasoning, after all, 1, you (and you I mean we, ok, I) don’t have to pick a colour, and 2, I can wear colours, I wouldn’t do otherwise but like anyway. This number by Mango is right up my alley cos it has the perfect yellow and red in it, but yet not over the top. FYI, I sized up in this to medium, to have it extra oversized.
I tried it on with this black bucket bag with white contrasting stitching, which I was thinking about but didn’t buy eventually, mainly because it has no interior pocket and it’s made of polyurethane, hence quite affordable though.
Ah, gotta love Brandy Melville. I know it only has one size, which obviously cannot fit everybody, but it usually fits me therefore i love it. I mean, here you have perfect rainbow jumper #2 made of full cotton and made in Italy (I think) for £32. Cannot find it online, but i’m pretty sure it’s still available on Carnaby Street.
Speaking of rainbows… Simple cotton tee, retro style, didn’t buy it though.
I swear, it wasn’t intended to buy new jeans, but fate is fate and I don’t fight fate, I’m much lazier than that. So 501 Skinny jeans, remember? I had them in dark wash, and I liked the fit and everything, but not the wash itself, only because my preference is pale jeans, God knows why. But then Levi’s came out with these, called Lovefool and I was sold again. Tried them twice in my usual size (W25L28), but the leg openings were so tight, I couldn’t put them on. This time the guy told me to try W25L30, so I did and bang!, they fit perfectly (although a bit longer I usually go for). Who would have thought?
Again, when it comes for basics, try Uniqlo. This is an advice I have to keep repeating. I mean, a full linen shirt for £30? In every colour of the rainbow (see the running theme here?) Count me in. All right, I didn’t buy it (yet), but maybe I will. It was a bit stiff and creasing like crazy, but it (the stiffness) might get better in time, the creases are only natural, but I rather wear creased than sweaty anyway.
So yellow shirt, ok, more like a blouse option 2. This one is more like a peasant style and the fabric is much softer, thanks to the rayon mixed to the linen which is good, but then I don’t like the 3/4 sleeves. It’s not the blouse’s fault, I just would rather go short or long and then roll them up myself. Anyhow, it was worth the try.
And that’s it, finally it’s time to buy things which we can actually wear, yay! I’m so excited can you tell? 🙂
