Black and White for Summer and Passion4Fashion Linkup


Can i just take a moment to complain about this freakin' crazy-ass weather we are having. Seriously its the height of summer and yet all we're having is rain and more stupid rain. I mean yeh, great for the garden, great for the ducks, but not great for my wardobe full of summer dresses right now! It's just so depressing. 
Ok weather rant over.For now. Promise;)
So outfit wise, with it being rainy practically all the time, i've gone for a monochome look, 'cos quite frankly i am not feeling all summery and colourful. I blame you Mother Nature. 
I bought this tassel tshirt and aztec little jacket from a H&M haul a couple of months back. It's lovely, but the wrists are super weeny teeny tiny. I have quite big bones and my wrists aren't slight, but they're by no means gigantic either, making this jacket the most bizarre fitting sleeves ever. Going back to what i've previously mentioned about H&M, their sizing is quite frankly, all to pot. But perhaps so is my brain as i kept it anyway,Vanity folks.. it does crazy things to you. Now each time i need to take the jacket off i seem to do a little fight with it which looks like a crazy lady. But at least i'm a crazy lady in a cute jacket.







Heels c/o of the wonderful Shoeaholics (who currently have Designer shoes for £39 or less!)
Jeans: New Look
Tee & Jacket : H&M

Just a quick note: 
Yosa has some amazing new stock, be sure to get first dibs now, shall be doing a post about it all next week. And don't forget there's a Facebook discount code for all new Facebook Friends. Like Yosa's page here


And lastly. I think i can hear a collective sigh of relief from all the mama's out there who, like me, are on countdown to the school holidays. Today the kids break up for 6 glorious weeks and i can not wait to have a break from the usual routine. Ask me in 2 weeks though and may just be on countdown for them going back ;)

Mama's tired, so is Neo and that is his little robot friend that he just created using daddy's electrical tape.. the boys either crazy or a genius.. we're yet to decide.

  7. I'm with you I've had more than enough with this rain. It's even raining as we speak :(
    Anyways, I'm loving the jacket and the shoes definitely complement it well. I really like the tasseled top as well, tassels are so fun! Great look!

  13. I have always struggled with H&M sizing so I rarely shop there. Bummer about the jacket - it's so cute!
