These snaps are actually from June, but I never got around to posting them. They were taking during a soggy week in June, which in sharp contrast to the disgustingly muggy weather we have here right now. The jacket is actually Dal's (my housemate) but I have been on the hunt for my own that is just as nice. It's actually surprisingly hard to find a trench coat that looks right on my frame. I have short legs and a long body and I'm finding that nothing sits in a flattering way! If anyone has a nice one then do let me know!

This is such a classic british outfit and I absolutely love it. Despite the fact the idea of wearing jeans terrifies me right now, this is just one of those go-to awesome easy outfits.

Illness Update: I went to a walk in clinic today and they told me they thought I have some sort of virus which is messing with my body temperature and giving me the flu-like symptoms. They don't know what exactly but it seems to be easing off a little. Not fun but I do feel a lot better today - Well enough to actually do some work and housework. The state of my bedroom has been driving me crazy for the past two days!

  1. You always look so classy! I struggle to find a decent Trench coat because I'm quite short, I can never find one that falls to the right length!

    Glad to hear you're feeling better!

  2. This is SUCH a cute, chic look. I love the nude trench & black outfit. I also love how you've taken on the almost standard masculine look (i.e. loafers, trousers, trench & hat) and given it such a nice feminine twist. Your loafers are amazing. I think they're going to be a huge trend here (Australia) soon too. Feminine loafers are too good!

  6. You look gorgeous & I love trenchcoats - especially beige ones. I think black ones are adorable too. Go thrift shopping - they used to be really hip - maybe you can find a classic! X sjoukje from www.lemontierres.com
