British 'Summertime' Blues

Monday, May 22, 2017

What happened to the sunshine?! This past week in Manchester the weather has been 95% gloomy af with frequent rain showers making it difficult to find the opportunity to shoot some snazzy outfit shots for what is meant to be the 'summer'. Oh how I love British weather. Thankfully the weather Gods spared us from the rain this Sunday meaning I could share with you all this cute little blue number I'm currently loving. Featuring my newest pair of shoes from Zara... how beautiful are they?!

This time of year is the most difficult to dress. The days begin cloudy (usually raining) and then by 4pm it has brightened up and the sun is in the sky. This outfit is perfect for those unpredictable weather days. Jeans (black of course because I am so summery) and a leather jacket to keep you warm if it rains, but can easily be switched up with sunnies and look summery with last year's staple bardot tee. Featuring the prettiest tie sleeve detailing. Effortless British summer dressing at its finest. 

As you can probably tell, I live for simple, comfort dressing. But who says simple can't be hella stylish?! Every single pair of new shoes I ever buy ALWAYS cut the back of my ankles to shreds. Even trainers. The struggle is real. And so when I came across this pair in Zara I instantly fell in love. With an open back made for comfortable wearing and the prettiest subtle fringing detail; I just had to have them. 

I spent my Sunday indulging in a lush af pub lunch. Nothing better than that on a Sunday, am I right?!
