Jim and I went into York for food and a little shop on my birthday last Tuesday and I feel like we
experienced ALL the weather elements in about 6 hours that day, like holy shit this was a very windswept day, we even had frigging hail for crying out loud and all I was wearing was a flimsy pair of shorts and a not very warm faux leather jacket, cute? Yes, practical? No. I love Spring, I really really do, however, I don't love spring when it makes me look like I'm doing that crabxcore band stare off into the distance glare when I'm trying to take shots for my blog. . . .
Regardless of the aforementioned weather elements, when I woke up on Tuesday I was greeted by the bluest sky I'd seen all year and felt well and truly in a spring mood and wanted that to reflect in an outfit. I dug out my fave faux leather pastel pink jacket from Zara that had been regulated to the back of my wardrobe until the warmer months. It's literally littered with pins from all my fave places, because do you really own one of the Zara pastel jackets if you don't cover it with quirky pins?! I also really wanted to wear my high-waisted daisy shorts I've had for the longest time that I love but equally, I don't really get much wear out of. Fun fact, whenever I seem to wear these shorts I always find myself outside in some sort of downpour with nowhere to take shelter, this occasion was no exception to that and even though these pictures are bright, I was fucking cold and to be honest the weather for most of the day did seem to turn a little bit miserable. I always struggle to find something to go with them on the top half which 9 times out of 10 is usually something white which I don't really own much of, I mostly have white items in the form of scruffy old band t-shirts I've had since school. I then remembered my lovely friend Jess had lent me the most gorgeous shirt that has a lovely pleated back.
As I'm practically living in my creeper boots from T.U.K they seemed the obvious footwear choice for the day because really just look at them, I won't be taking these off anytime soon. Can we all also just take a moment to appreciate my bag? I had been eyeing up this bag from Killstar for literally forever and was so pleased when I opened my gifts from James to see it was one of them. It will make a nice change interchanging this with my Topshop rucksack I take everywhere with me.
Are you looking forward to dressing for Spring as much as I am?
