motel shorts (was playsuit)*
monki draped shirt
topshop boots (similar here)

I bought this cami a while ago as I was instantly drawn to the back detailing. I think there is something really subtle and sexy about showing off your back and quite like showing that off. The cami itself is actually quite long but I decided to tuck it into my shorts rather than have it hang over it. The Motel shorts were made from one of my old go-to going out playsuits but the top half of the playsuit was a little too short for me in the body so it made wearing it quite difficult. I attacked it a bit with some scissors and viola, a pair of shorts. I really like the feather print, I don't think Motel still do it but they really should do it again at some point. It's really cute and playful without being too girly. I toughed the outfit up with a coat, again something I've had for ages just never worn, from Monki. I loved anything oversized and drapey last A/W so I think I was drawn to it naturally back then. Since then I've changed my style a bit however I think this cold work it's way back into my daily outfit rotation!
