So today I went out for a little catch up with the lovely Tom who is a very dear tumblr friend of mine. We’re like exactly the same person when it comes to taste in music as well as our whole aesthetic. We went for a coffee at Starbucks for a little bitching session as well as a catch up on life. After we finished our little bitching session we went on a lovely walk in the sunshine and had a photography session against a gorgeous floral bush. Equipped with our Instax and Tom with his Polaroid we thought it would be a fun photo session. The whole aesthetic of the photo session was very Lana Del Rey vibe coming from it and I thought what a perfect way to showcase my outfit that I had on. So the outfit I was wearing you might have seen before in a previous post when I went to Disneyland minus the roll neck as it was too warm for that. My Zara jacket looked in place with this floral background it just looked stunning. Teamed up with my new white sweatshirt which you will see again in another photo shoot I’m planning on Monday. The sweatshirt was purchased from Ebay for £5.99! We enjoyed out little photo shoot and we definitely are going to do more of them as we both love photography and fashion so it’s perfect!
So today I was going to do a few favourites outfits as I have the day off work. However the weather didn’t want to play nicely today and rained most of the day. The only time it stopped I got myself ready into one of my outfits and ran outside in my garden to take a few snaps. I only got one outfit but that’s better than nothing. It is one of my new favourite outfits though that I just love and can’t wait to go out in.
My tartan cape is one of the best buys I’ve ever got. As people know I love a cape as seen on my “Look at that cape swoop” post. This cape was originally £70 from Zara men’s. and I saw it on eBay. My brother told me to put a ridiculous bid in for my maximum highest bid. I was willing to pay £30 for it. So my highest maximum bid was £30.79. Someone was trying to out bid me so much and it got down to the last couple of seconds and they bidded £30.00, if it wasn’t for that 79p I would not have that beautiful Tartan cape. The cape is a bold statement piece and just finishes this outfit off perfectly. It’s a thin material also which will transition me lovely for the Spring.
I won’t go on about my roll neck again because I wore that in my previous look in my previous “Favourite Outfits” As well as my shoes.
My trousers are surprisingly blue chinos from Topman that I’ve dyed black. I’ve always liked chinos and Topman always seem to have really nice chinos, priced around £28-£30. These ones might be a bit to big on the waist for me but it just means I can wear them a little higher with a big chunky belt. I love rolling chinos up at the bottom, it just gives it a bit more edge than having them down normally.
My fedora hat is one of my ultimate favourite accessories that I just think finishes any outfit off and gives it the ultimate edge. From H&M women’s section is was the best purchase ever. Though not everyone agrees with them but I personally adore the style.
So my cape from Topman came yesterday and I decided to think of some outfits that I could put with this cape. I instantly thought of my white shirt, skinny jeans rolled up with little black socks, teamed up with my patent brogues. Then around my neck I wore my black neck tie with my stag brooch on and to top it all off my fedora hat which I later added in the pictures below. I also had another outfit which just replaced the shirt for an oversized baggy white knitted jumper.
The cape is an amazing accessory to have in winter, it’s surprising how much it keeps you warm. Definatly worth the money, I’d recommend it to anyone. Thank you Topman!
