The New Classic

Top: Jack Wills (charity shop).  
Jeans: Topshop (Jamie).  
Hat and scarf: France.  
Shoes: Vitti Love.  
Necklace: Primark.  
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban.  

I was going to do a separate post on why I've been so absent on my blog but really there isn't much to it.  I'm working 3 and a half days at my 'grown up job' and working on my dissertation.  I'm also trying to have some sort of life but work and my dissertation are just taking up all my energy.  Can't wait to be done with it so I can just start to focus on myself and do things I love to do.  I've booked tickets to see Carmen (the opera) in September and an appointment with the hairdresser so there is that to look forward to.

Anyway, today I went to the local fete with my pal WGP.  As I'm in office wear most of the time now (or my pjs) on the weekends I like to just dress for comfort.  Today I ended up looking more Parisian/European than I intended to.  Sometime you just can't beat a classic stripped t-shirt and jeans.  Less is more.  My style recently has become a lot more simplistic, and I want to start buying more quality than quantity.  

These fabulous loafers come into that.  They're from a local shop but they specialise in selling Italian and Spanish shoes.  These loafers are actually a European size 35 (UK 2.5) which is my actual shoe size.  It's such a treat to me to find shoes that fit me without the help of insoles.  If you don't think these are fabulous then I don't think we can be friends. Sorry.

As I said, things are going to be a bit quiet around here for the next month or so. Sometimes things like blogging just need to be put to one side.  After all this is just a bit of the internet, it's not the end of the world if things are quiet around here.  I'm still fairly active on twitter and Instagram so catch me on there.
