Outfit | The Staple Black Bag.

Jumper // Vintage.
Lace Shorts // Oh My Love London.
Bag // Daniel Footwear*.
Cleated sole sandals // Linzi.

Be prepared to see a lot more of this tote! The perfect minimal black bag is something I'm sure is on many of our capsule check lists. And if it wasn't on yours, don't tell me it now isn't after laying eyes on the above? This beauty from Daniel Footwear delivers what I look for in a staple bag. It's black, large, has efficient handles, pockets, is simplistic yet brimming with key details; gold hardware and suede side panels. I could go on all day, but instead I'll let the bag do the talking.. in every future post from today onwards!
Sorry not sorry.

Outfit | Blanc Canvas

Linen Shirt // H&M Mens.
White Jeans // Zara.
Vintage Levi's Jacket.
Bag // Zara.
Heels // Zara.
Watch // Kenneth Cole.
Midi rings // H&M.

There's something about white that screams Spring.. And leaves me screaming at suspect spill-ers with the intentions of adding some colour to my all white outfit! Something I had narrowly avoided until coming in to contact with a Mcdonalds a few days ago. Lets just say me and Ketchup are not the best of friends. See my Twiiter for details and a good laugh at my expense!

So whilst my white jeans are soaking in cold water, lets talk white shirts.
I'd been on the hunt for that perfect 'Men's fit, feminine fabric, can dress up or dress down, just stepped off the Wang runway' style of shirt. Are you still with me?
It was a huge ask I know, so of course when I couldn't find an exact match (on a highstreet budget), I did what any other desperate blogger would do and bought two! The first being this linen H&M mens shirt. It ticks most of the boxes, surprisingly its Men's fit.. has that effortless 'I'll be waiting on my Yacht' look but is lacking the luxury feminine touch. Fortunately I'm a girl, so there needn't be any mistake there.

Coat// Missguided.
Knit// Zara. (Similar HERE)
Jeans// H&M. (Similar HERE)
Slides// Topshop
Bag// Primark. (Similar HERE)
Shades// RayBan.
Watch// Kenneth Cole.

You may have noticed somethings a little different around here and no its not just the happy look on my face! Although the new love in my life; the Canon 600D is certainly something to smile about. So I owe a massive thank you to Bloggabase for the Amazon vouchers I won to inaid me to get back in the blogging game, no more excuses!

Ripped jeans are having a bit of a moment, but I'm surprised its taken me this long to get around to DIY'ing one of my many black skinnys. I was like a mother having to choose which child I loved least. Finally this H&M pair made the cut, possibly because they were the cheapest so if your feeling anxious at the thought of destroying your trusty jeans perhaps put the scissors down and grab yourself a £14.99 trial-price pair to get snip-happy with first. Tears shed = Priceless!
