A couple of weeks ago I got a little brave and decided to get some skin on show (granted – it’s only my ankles but it’s still skin) in honour of the temperatures getting a little warmer by a degree or two. I am cold 99% of the time and constantly sit with my hot water bottle glued to me at work, so this is quite a step! Of course, we’ve now been hit with ‘The Beast from the East’ and Storm Emma in the UK so the hope of some warmth and being able to wear lighter layers is but a dream once again.
However, I am quite a fan of this little outfit so I thought I would still share it with you anyway.
So, reasons why I love the outfit? It’s just so me. It’s made up completely of shades of black and grey, I get to wear a hat and not bother with my hair and it features two of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe right now – the bargain Zara sweater and these side stripe trousers from Stradivarius.
I have a feeling my wardrobe is going to feature a lot more of these sporty side stripe pieces going into Spring and Summer so look out for them.
Ciao for now x
