If you’ve been around reading (or just looking at the photos, ‘cos lord knows i do ramble) then you will know i have a few basics. By basic i mean items that i fall back on time and time again. They’re my go-to items, the no effort or brain power required, running off 5 hours sleep because you have a Netflix problem that you just can’t quit, type-outfits.
But d’you know what? They’re normally my favourites. Amongst my favourite things (stripes, leopard print, the colour red) are my new (faux) Birkies or Birkenstock style sandal should i say.
Yep after contemplating whether they were fabulous or just plain fugly since last summer, they have now made it to my most beloved items list.
I mean, holy moly they are comfy, and as much as its probably not quite warm enough yet, i have been taking them out for a few spins round the block to get them worn in all nice and comfy for summer. Thats a good excuse right? Because honestly, they didn’t even need wearing it they’re that good. Plus its May which surely means it legit sandal weather in theory.
Another thing i had totally forgotten about (i blame netflix again.. its rotting my memory i tell you) is these Gap trousers i picked up last year. the insanely comfy, confidence boosting (they’re a size 6….wtf indeed) trousers that gives me a nice break from constant jeans wearing. The ankle skimming length just makes it for me, i do love a nicely cut pair of trousers and these are in desperate need of some more air time. I’m thinking my new grey waistcoat and these should become friends soon, no?
And lastly.. the jacket, its new and its amazing. Red is always my pick me up colour. If i’m looking tired of peaky, it instantly brings a bit of colour back to me as if i’ve miraculously had an 8 hour sleep. This red jacket drew me in from a rather wonderful window display at Next. I saw it on the mannequin and it was instant attraction. So in i went. And so i bought it.
