Hair down/Hair up

Just a quick OOTD post for you today - I am definitely due some beauty posts and they will be coming next! - featuring some of my favourite shades: white/black/nude.

Safe you say? Abso-friggin-lutely!

I pretty much love all the pieces.

* The jeans are incredible comfortable. Current/Elliott are big on stretch.
* The vest is light and airy and is long enough to cover the crotch area...I have a real thing about this.
* The blazer is a classic, comes with pockets and is the right amount of fitted versus oversized.

And I had to wear my new shoes :)

Something I also made sure I wore was my Mitchum anti-perspirant.

Too much information? Well sorry but it was hot!

You can tell that this was the case because on the first batch of self-timer photos I left my hair down.  A decision to put it in a quick bun was made after about 10 seconds. It's for the best anyway. I have been doing Bikram every day and the constant washing (and not bothering to blow dry) makes it look like cack anyway. Up dos for the next 10 days!

Vest: ASOS - Link!
Blazer: ASOS - Link!
Bag: Celine

Shoes: Christian Louboutin

See you soon!

Only one more work day until the weekend for me! Hallelujah!

  20. love the outfit! that bag is absolutely gorgeous and i love how you've tied it in as a neutral but the pop of color in your outfit. i'm on the hunt for a nice oversized blazer, but i'm afraid if i got one in white it'd be too vulnerable to stains knowing how messy i am... haha
