Happy Monday folks.  I can’t speak for the whole of the UK but waking up in London this morning was pretty darn glorious, finally Summer may have just arrived.  I won’t hold my breath.  For the last few weeks we’ve had inconsistent weather and true to form the Great British Summer has wreaked havoc with our sartorial choices.  

The biker jacket is often my best friend and companion throughout these tricky times and can turn an otherwise beach suitable outfit into something worth of city roaming in the rain.  Over the next week I’m hoping to grant my biker some annual leave but for now, here’s an outfit from last week when I went for lunch and catch ups with my Morocco buds; Anna & Lindsey.

    Every morning looking out of the window (here in Austria) – I really don´t know what to wear the whole day!

    The top you are wearing is a size UK 12?

    have a great monday!

      I hate it when the weather can;t make it’s mind up. Yes I got the top in a size 12 so it would be oversized and also slightly longer x

    The top and shoes look great on you 🙂 I’m not sure how I feel about cork wedges but I do like the top of the shoe 🙂 As for the biker jacket, I’ve yet to invest in a good one! I have a white, budget friendly one that I love the cut of. I’d love to replace it with a higher quality version.

      Thanks Thuy, they’re not actually cork but espadrilles, I’m not a fan of cork either. You can’t beat a good biker jacket, it’s something you’ll have for years and years if you invest in a high quality one x

      The size 8 was tiny and I wanted it nice and baggy, and also a bit longer so it wasn’t so cropped. These shoes are life right now haha x

    Which length size do you take on that jeans?
    I ordered the W30L32 – it didn´t fit at all..
    I´m a Uk 10 and between 174 cm and 175 cm tall

    Thank you for your help 😉
