We seem to have had more than our share of endless grey, misty skies over the last few months. Oh and wind, a whole lot of wind. So flinging open the curtains last week to be greeted by the sun was a bit of a shock. Eager to take advantage of this phenomenon, I quickly threw together an outfit and set off for a spot of brunch with a friend.
I decided to take a brave (or utterly dumb) coat-free road, and threw a cream wrap over my shoulder to snuggle into if the weather changed. I actually had a few layers on under my vintage geometric print blouse, which kept me cosy. I did nip inside to pull on a pair of nude fishnet tights before leaving though – after this shoot I had very cold feet.
The wearing of hats is quite a new thing for me, I simply didn’t have the confidence when I was younger to pop a millinery creation on my head. Now I can’t get enough of them! This cream addition to my rapidly growing hat collection was a recent find at a vintage store. Although not an original piece (not for the price I paid), I like the twenties twist it brings to an outfit.
I love the fact that nobody would have guessed, but underneath my hat of much awesomeness my hair was a bit of a mess.
Hat – Vintage / Geometric Print Blouse – Vintage / Jeans – River Island (super stretchy with a subtle shiny coating) / Shoes – Bought a long time ago from a boutique that is now out of business 🙁 / Wrap – No label, and it’s not the best as it creases easily. I like this one / Thumb Ring – Gift from Mr Chic. If you want to blow your budget I really love this one / Nails – OPI, Big Apple Red / Earrings – Gift from Mr Chic (yes I am well aware of my spoilage). These are simulated diamond studs, but they are the same cut.

I very much enjoyed my day in the sun. Let’s hope that there’s a whole lot more of it on its way!
