LEATHER CONTRAST SWEATER







Sweater: Primark
Leggings: Primark
Boots: New Look
Earrings: Gogo Philip
Boyfriend coat: New Look
Bag: Gucci

I swear the hardest part of post writing is the start. Or at least it is for me. I don't want to post something void of personality and emotion but it's gets to the point where I realise my life isn't that exciting and the only notable thing is a hair cut. 

This outfit is something I wore just before my holiday- so note the pale skin and lovely summer evening lighting. The sweater us an amazing fund from Chris. I spotted its almost identical sister in H&M but not in my size and as it wasn't online after visiting 4 stores I eventually gave up. But not Chris- he was sure he had spotted something similar and found this version in Primark. The only difference is a few pounds in price, a little bit more over sized and a cool faux leather pocket. 

I love how supportive Chris is of my clothes addiction. 

I know I'm breaking the rule of "leggings are not trousers" but I can't help it. I only own one pair of jeans and one pair if trousers so I would much rather be comfortable. 

The bag does all the talking in this look but I wanted a statement piece of jewellery and my The Bohemian Collective bracelet was the perfect fit. I actually bought this in a sample sale of there's months ago but I had looked for the perfect cuff for ages. It's actually a shame there is no longer gold cuffs- but this, this and this in silver are equally as cool.
