One of my favourite outfits ever? I think so. I don't know what it is but I just felt absolutely shit hot today. The red lipstick was a last minute decision but I think it pops really well against an all-black outfit. I love this deep, berry red. So much more autumnal than my usual bright red.
I was sent these gorgeous shorts from Very and I had them altered this week. I absolutely love them. When I was asked to choose something, I fell in love with them. I've wanted a pair of leather shorts since last winter, I have lots of outfit ideas for them. I really love the contrast of leather and knit, and I've seen a lot of bloggers doing it lately so I had to try it out. I was going to wear a plain white shirt, but I thought I'd play with wintery checks and I added black ribbon again like I did here. I also wore the same tights, socks and wedges combo that I wore last Friday. These must be my Friday shoes!!

I'm writing this from back home. It's funny, I went 4 months without coming home or seeing my parents this time last year, but I was excited to come back this weekend. Coming home is different now, after living in America for a year. I think I appreciate it more. Okay, I'm not going to lie, I hate it when I live back home because I get frustrated. But it's nice to come home for a weekend, for a bit of a break. Coming home is always the same. Stockport is always the same. The same buildings, the same people. Everything the same as my childhood. It's nice, in a way. The memories, the nostalgia. It's always good to come back after a break. I remember the excitement I experienced when I came home from America for Christmas. I get bored very easily, and I love to move. A month ago, I couldn't wait to get back to Birmingham. Now it's nice to have a weekend away. In the same way that it was nice coming home from America, and just as great going back. I fought this weekend though, because I've been so stressed that I knew I didn't have time to have a weekend off, but sometimes I think that's what you need. Home comforts.
Have a lovely Friday!!
Great outfit! No wonder you felt hot, you look killer. I actually really hate going home because nothing there is the same anymore, while I wish it was. It doesn't feel like "coming home" anymore because my parents live in a house I'd never lived in, and they've torn down my middle-school and the flea market burned down. Ah well. I hope you have a really good weekend :DReplyDelete
Love your faux leather shorts lady, I have some that I got last winter and have worn them once, I really need to dig them out! Good luck on the jacket hunt, I hope you find it! If not I've seen one in H&M very similar, just a heads up :)ReplyDelete
I love those tights!! Such a cute outfit!ReplyDelete
This faux leather shorts are sooo amazing, I wish I had some like this. And the checkered top looks perfect with the sweater over it! Such a great look. No wonder you felt hot, you look hot!ReplyDelete
Your legs look so long and pretty in this outfit!! Oh my gosh!! :] Not that your legs don't normally look nice, they just look extremely long here!! You look great - those shorts are perfect.ReplyDelete
I love this! Although I would've add another red accessory :) What lipstick are you wearing? It looks lovely on you!ReplyDelete
Yep, you nailed it! :)ReplyDelete
I had to alter my Very.co.uk outfit too. Was too long, but i manage to work a bit of magic on it. It looks like you have too - the shorts look great! xReplyDelete
I love those shorts - I really want a leather skirt!ReplyDelete
Haha I love that you admitted you felt shit hot. I love those day, just walking around with your head held high and a spring in your step. You do look amaze, red lipstick has to be done with black :) xxReplyDelete
I think this is one of my favorites, as well! You probably felt hot because you LOOK hot. Seriously. I love those tights, and the amazing shorts, and pretty much everything else. Especially the red lips! Perfect.ReplyDelete
