On the sunny side of the street

Wearing: Hat from Topshop, Biker Jacket from New Look, 
T-Shirt from Zara, Skirt from Primark and 
Loafers from F&F at Tesco

So it seems candid won this weekend! I'm rather useless as a fashion blogger when it comes to posing and facial expressions; I look completely unnatural akin to the sight of a running giraffe. I'll admit that in the last photo my other half Phil was about to be on the receiving end of some expletives as he shoved the camera in my face,  taking 'close up' to a whole new see-up-my-nose level. But it doesn't look half bad eh?
I don't think I've featured my latest favourite item on the blog yet, all hail my pork pie hat. I got it for my birthday in November and it's firmly attached to my head a lot of the time, it's one of those items that you obsessively wear because it's shiny and new and all you can think about. It's versatile and cute but best of all it fits!
Both the belted skater skirt and T-Shirt were Christmas gifts. The skirt is textured and is perfectly flattering for my figure while the T-Shirt was an obvious must have as it's a BUNNY and becomes the fifth item of rabbit themed clothing in my wardrobe. 
I really like this outfit actually, it's completely different to what I was going to wear and was literally a throw together job which looks much better than I initially envisioned. 

I'd love to know what your current wardrobe favourite is?


  1. Mine is skater skirts.... Ive bought three in about 6 weeks!!! Just think they are so versatile. Love ur hat!! I love hats too :) and the pics look fab xxx

  2. I love your hat! This whole outfit is gorgeous, can't go wrong with a skater skirt and everything is better when there's a bunny on it! Really wish I wore them more but feel odd in them, maybe it's just getting used to it. My favourite item in my wardrobe at the moment is probably the dog print shirt I got for Christmas, it's adorable and so versatile! I'm also in love with my new lindy ankle boots, but I'm currently too scared to wear them out in case i break my neck! xxx

  3. I love your Jacket!!:) i'm following you, visit my blog if you want :)

  4. I have automatic admiration for anyone who sports a hat. I think it gives an outfit such class :) You look adorable!
