Penguin

I'm already being pulled towards winter colours and i'm automatically reaching for black. I wore this a few weeks back on a very warm day for a networking lunch.

The shorts are new, i've been hunting for a black denim pair that didn't have that high vintage waist. I love the look of the high waisted style they just don't suit me, these have a standard rise, little frayed edges and are nicely loose on the legs (which is a must for me and much more flattering than skin tight shorts).

Blazer - H&M
Tee - Forever 21
Shorts - All Saints
Sandals - Zara
Bag - Mulberry
Necklace - From Uruguay
Watch - Michael Kors

This blazer decided it had had enough wear and the hem unravelled whilst at a fashion show last week (for the price it really has lasted well) so i'm now on the hunt for a new one of a better quality this weekend. I can't live without a black blazer so if you have spotted any please let me know!

  1. I LOVE the necklace, it's very much like the Dara Ettinger ones I've been eyeing. Of course you look so chic, the perfect smart / casual look I need! I love high waisted pencil skirts, thats about it, everything else doesn't suit me either. Your hairs getting longer! x

  2. Thanks Parveen, I do like high waisted skirts it's just the vintage denim shorts look awful on me. Yes the hair is getting a bit longer, another 4-5 inches and i'll be happy!

  8. Those shorts look great on you.

    My black blazer has also gone to the dogs, I really struggle to find ones that fit me as I'm quite broad but have a (comparatively) smaller waist. And then there's the length... Good luck!
