Cream & Black (&Passion4Fashion Linkup!)

We're travelling back in time today folks, back about 2 weeks ago pre hair cut and when we were having a milder spate of weather. I saw this style of outfit on Pintrest (my arch nemesis..pintrest.. anyone else struggle with that highly addictive website?!) and thought at the time I have all the same sorta items that are needed to make that outfit, i could totally replicate it!
Of course mine looks nothing like that street-styled, papped gorgeous blonde with the expensive outfit, but I'm giving you the everyday girl styled version of it. We're ok with that, yes? Ok, good 'cos I've got nothing else to give to ya today.

Last weekend rained consistently (cheers for that Storm Imogen) and gale force winds meant taking outfit photos were a definite no no.  that storm gave Wales a good ol' beating, to the point i was actually a little bit worried my conservatory may not be attached come morning! Thankfully it passed and we are all safe and sound.

Annyway, back to the outfit (can you tell I have complete Friday brain, which is no excuse really as i actually write this on a Thursday, basically there's no hope for me), so yes, cream, white and black. Super simple, super effective. I got these joggers from H&M a few months back for around the costly figure of seven whole pounds and the cream cardigan is a Primark special from a quick hit and run back last year.
I couldn't decide whether to go with my New Balance sneakers or these lace-ups, well, you can see what I went with, but I made a mental note to try it out with the sport edge next time.
I'm actually a teeny bit jealous of two weeks ago when the temperature made it acceptable to bare your feet. Its dropped right back down again, and as much as i love winter and coats and knit wear, i'm kind of tiring of it now. I'm craving blazers and loafers, and what i'm actually doing is layering knitwear on knitwear and donning the thermals. There's me thinking February would be milder, man oh man was I wrong.

Cream Cardigan: Primark
Shoes: Warehouse

  17. I am looking forward to spring because the weather is quite unstable! Snow and cold weather one moment than sunny days and warm weather. Love the outfit by the way!

  18. I always get anxious for spring as about this time, actually I could erase Jan, Feb off my calendar and be alright with it! Love the cozy jacket and those joggers look great too. I love the looser cut of them on you too.

  19. Rachel you're becoming the master of sleek neutrals!! Love everything about this, it'll look so good with trainers too. And isn't it funny when you cut your hair... My posts went a bit all over the place for a couple of weeks with my hair going from short to long and back to short again...!!

    Hope you're having a fantastic weekend, thank you for hosting
