Monochromatic Afternoons

Yesterday afternoon (for a few hours in between biblical downpours) was simply beautiful – crisp air, bright but grey skies and mild enough not to wear a jacket but not too warm for my new gilet.

I had an afternoon of errands and meetings and was meeting my husband for an early dinner so I needed a look to take me from day to night, I opted for my favourite leather/jeans hybrid from Topshop, this Maison Scotch long sleeved t-shirt that I have worn to death since buying two years ago, these Zara heels which are not only extremely comfortable but also incredibly light so perfect for keeping in my big Celine tote whilst rushing around in my Converse.

I completed the look with this 1970s gilet from Forever 21 and my faithful Celine shades. I felt comfortable but also able to jump from one meeting to the next and come evening I felt glamorous enough for my dinner. Makeup wise I stuck with MAC Spice liner all over and my new favourite lipstick – Charlotte Tilbury Very Victoria.

    Those heels are so gorgeous and beautifully cut. I always seek out your Zara purchases here in Australia, but as we are the opposite time of year (as in your Autumn is our Spring) I have to wait until next year! I do hope we get these shoes xx

      Ah that’s so annoying! The heels were actually purchased last February though so you may have them in your stores now! Thanks for reading 🙂 x
